KOS HIMSELF-Obama's Chamberlain Impersonation Fuels New Progressive Uprising (Vanity)
TCRLAF | 12-7-10 | TCRLAF

Posted on 12/07/2010 11:09:45 AM PST by tcrlaf

Mark Mousilitas, Owner of Daily Kos, posted this screed on DAILY KOS about 30 minutes ago. Even the crazy nutroots are getting it now!!

Join me in revelling as the insane realize what a failure Obama has been!!

"Summer of 2009, Democratic lawmakers were swarmed by phone callers and town hall attendees by the then-nascent teabagger movement, furious at the creeping socialism of a government-run health insurance option.

You see, Republicans were so worried that the government-run program would be so efficient, effective, and affordable that it would drive the private insurers out of business. And their teabagger allies rose up in unison to defeat this great threat while progressives, burned by serial Democratic capitulation, essentially sat disgusted on the sidelines.

Democratic leaders ignored signs of an intensity gap in 2010, and proceeded to further capitulation and inaction on issue after issue important to base Democrats.

In December 2009, I literally had David Axelrod argue with me in the Green Room of ABC News' This Week that the base would come home because -- I shit you not -- Obama would score big points for negotiating the START treaty. That's when I knew we were doomed in 2010.

Of course, the intensity gap was real, and base Democrats sat on their asses and let Republicans score massive gains in the House and Senate, and punishing Nancy Pelosi -- the best Democrat in DC.

But now, progressives finally seem fired up. REALLY fired up. And it's not because of the latest GOP outrage, but because Obama may have finally capitulated once too many times. They're lighting up the phone lines."

The comments are frackin' HILARIOUS.

It's open season on Obama now, from the left, and Mousilitas just opened the floodgates. Reality is crashing down upon them, and they do not like it!!

Well, he's half-right. We thought that private insurers would lose because they could not beat the government-run system operating at a loss. But anyone who thinks that government health care is efficient and effective is simply insane.

What a maroon!

This despite the fact there has never been an "efficient, effective and affordable" government program in the history of the world. Boy, those Tea Partiers sure must be stooopud.

They insist on using the term “teabagger”. They better be careful because as a well endowed 70 year old man, I’ve got a fairly hefty “teabag” to drap all over them. I know, I know, too much information!

Kos’ use of the word “teabagger” confirms that he’s still struggling to hurdle the quality benchmark of “high school newspaper”.

The liberals are NOT happy they got teabagged.

Like the incompetent Obama, they ignored all the signs of what was coming, and convinced themselves that it couldn’t happen. Now reality is biatchslapping them, and it’s all falling apart.

Here’s the part that got to me:

“In December 2009, I literally had David Axelrod argue with me in the Green Room of ABC News’ This Week that the base would come home because — I shit you not — Obama would score big points for negotiating the START treaty. That’s when I knew we were doomed in 2010.”

While the Obamacare line is pure stupidity, this line reveals just how clueless Obama and his followers really are, as to what is happening out here in the REAL WORLD...

Yep, I thought the same thing. In that sense Marcos was right. That Axelrod thought START was going to save their bacon is proof that these guys are absolutely detached from reality.

I almost couldn’t get past this line:

“You see, Republicans were so worried that the government-run program would be so efficient, effective, and affordable that it would drive the private insurers out of business.”

REALLY? Does this insane person REALLY think that? I say “insane” because you have to be not barking-at-the-moon insane, not thinking-the-aliens-are-coming-to-get-YOU insane, not hearing-voices-insane, not dogs-are-really-aliens-insane, but FAR more insane than that to think (1) any large government program is EVER efficient, effective, and affordable, let alone (2) that’s what Republicans were worried about.

WOW!

Ah. This is the most rational explanation I have heard thus far as to the increased insanity of the left. Tin must have far better blocking properties than Aluminum to the waves being emitted. That is why the people in black helecopters are funded by ALCOA, a nasty corporation.

If a government program drives a private enterprise out of business it is not because the program is “effecient, effective and affordable”. It is because the government does not have to make a profit, or for that matter break even, because the government program has the bottomless pockets of the taxpayer to prop it up.
