Yes, He Did: Obama Makes History Again (Barf Alert!!! The leftwing lunatic is gloating)
Investors.com ^ | March 22, 2010 | Leftwing lunatic E.J. DIONNE JR

Yes, we did. Finally, President Obama can use those words. The passage of health care reform provided the first piece of incontestable evidence that Washington has changed.

Congress is, indeed, capable of carrying through fundamental social reform. No longer will the United States be the outlier among wealthy nations in leaving so many of its citizens without basic health coverage.

In approving the most sweeping piece of social legislation since the mid-1960s, Democrats proved that they can govern, even under challenging circumstances and in the face of significant internal divisions.

To understand how large a victory this is, consider what defeat would have meant. In light of the president's decision to gamble all of his standing to get this bill passed, its failure would have crippled his presidency. The Democratic Congress would have become a laughingstock, incapable of winning on an issue that has been central to its identity since the days of Harry Truman.

This is why Republicans decided to put everything they had into an effort to defeat the measure. They said its passage would hurt the Democrats in November's elections. They knew that its failure would have haunted Democrats for decades.

Idiots they have huge majorities and they call this governing? The only thing bipartisan in this government takeover is the opposition to it. The American People got hoodwinked in NOV but I sense we are awake and we will not go quietly along for this ride into Socialism.

Is “Yes We Did” the new prayer to Dear Leader instead of “Yes We Can?”

***They knew that its failure would have haunted Democrats for decades.***

He truly believes the GOP wanted to defeat this bill in order to embarrass the Democrats? Does he not understand that opponents want to save the US way of life and our Constitution?

E.J.Dionne is a ding-dong.

Does that mean Hillary is a laughingstock? Is that why Zero kept her out of the country while Pelosicreature lied, cheated and bribed her way through the passing of Hillarycare v.2010?

They proved they can govern by having secret meetings to write bills, they can govern by buying vote with bribes and bkackmail, They can govern by tossing the Constitution in the trash. They can govern by lying to the American people.

They call this governing. I call it Governing by fascism.

I don’t think amnesty is going to be as easy to get. People are on their toes now. We were pretty much blindsided with socialized health care because we didn’t think anyone would be so dishonest. We thought the American government system would work in the end. We didn’t think a governing body could be so blatantly criminal. Now we know they are capable of anything. And your rank and file Americans are aware now and they are very strongly against amnesty. We stopped amnesty once when the sitting president was strongly supporting it. I just don’t think they can walk over the American people so easy again. Each overreach they try will be harder and harder to get. Thats just my opinion and you know what they say about opinions.

If the current definition of “to govern” includes the ability to compel citizens of a sovereign Republic to purchase services they do not desire to procure, then such governance is a species of tyranny and I, as a free man, refuse. Force me, if you dare. I will respond as all free men ought to. My conscience and the Constitution I am sworn to uphold compels me to resist, and resist I will, so help me God.

I believe some of the democrats in the house are going to get tired of being pushed around by Piglosi and her thugs. I think eventually they will take a stand.

“evidence that Washington has changed”
On the contrary, its evidence that Washington(a city that’s an insult to its namesake)is still the same sell-out- America cesspool its been for decades.

Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

I see you meant the “Yes we did” slogan instead of my tagline. Sorry for the confusion. I think at the TEA parties, we should chant “Yes we will” and after we win in November “yes we did”.
