This doesn’t make much sense to me. If the vote is still scheduled for Sunday, then why doesn’t he leave after that? Perhaps they plan to push back the voting date yet again?

Rush just said 0bama was doing this so his kids could see where their father grew up. Hence the delay until after school is out in June.

The ongoing ARROGANCE and ABSOLUTE DISREGARD for the American peoples overwhelming position (NO HEALTHCARE REFORM) is astonishing.

You're absolutely correct. There is blood in the water, now, and it's there because of the constant work we've all been doing to demand that our feckless, reckless Congress bee-itches stop acting like fascists and start acting like Americans again.

The fight's far from over, though, so, once more into the breach, my friends, once more into the breach.

And this will help Al Qeada in the entire Indonesian area. Next terrorist attack is BO’s fault.

"They must be planning a huge Obamasky Care Celebration down in D.C. or not. "

I hate to say it, but I think you're right. If they had an idea that they were going to lose the vote, Obama would WANT to get out of Dodge, and the trip would be the perfect cover for that. Change the subject of the loss, and escape all at the same time.

OTOH, Obama also went to Sweden (or wherever it was) to campaign for the Olympics. Clearly, his predictors aren't very accurate.

Maybe he is staying to bask in his victory.

Until it is officially dead, I’m of the opinion this will pass by any means.

The “(slip sliding away)” tag in the title is a really premature and lacks the understanding of how desperate and dangerous these people are.

Don't make sense to me either. Only take I can get from this is THEY DON'T HAVE THE VOTES.

And yes, they will push it back yet again. Until the Rogue Dems understand what ANY MEANS NECESSARY means.

Delay stall or any means necessary to delay & stall is GOOD for us, puts us closer to election time.

Just got this!

URGENT REQUEST Dear .....,

Representative Steve King from Iowa is asking all Americans that possibly can to PLEASE go to Washington, DC for a huge peaceful gathering this Saturday, March 20, ON THE NATIONAL MALL. He is urging everyone to surround the building and not let anyone in or out of the Capitol to stop this government take over of Health Care.

Fellow patriots, this is the MOMENT. The House is planning a vote on Sunday and we must stop this bill now. Our very way of life in America will change overnight and this will be the "fundamental transformation" of our country that Barack Obama promised. This Health Care bill also includes the government completely taking over education and the student loan process.

This is our last stand. PLEASE, PLEASE GO TO WASHINGTON IF YOU CAN. Glenn Beck and Congressman King have likened this moment to the 1989 Velvet Revolution in Prague that brought down the Communist government. Those peaceful people stood in silence and shook their keys in solidarity. It was the sound of FREEDOM! Also, please pray unceasingly for our beloved America.

I think this is a negative sign for zer0. He has confided in a few insiders that he knows he’s sunk if this thing goes down in flames.

In fact, the latest push from the WH to the holdouts is that they have got to pass this to save the dear leader. They need to commit political suicide so he can survive the next 3 years.

Peeloosy doesn’t have the votes. If you saw her in her little appearance this AM she looked and sounded very edgy.

Sad but true. They are willing to sacrifice this nation on the alter of Obama. This nation was not founded on those principles. One man was never to have this kind of control or reign over our nation. But it's all Cloward and Piven to them.
