Axelrod threat to GOP: 'Make my day' (Height of arrogance on display in Zer0's WH)
wash examiner ^ | byron york

Posted on 03/16/2010 6:53:44 AM PDT by bestintxas

Top White House adviser David Axelrod says that if Congress passes the Democrats' national health care bill, it will be politically impossible for Republicans to undo the changes brought by the massive legislation. "I say, Let's have that fight. Make my day," Axelrod said on "Meet the Press." "I'm ready to have that, and every member of Congress ought to be willing to have that debate was well."

Axelrod made the point as he put forward the now-common argument that House Democrats who have already voted for the health care bill once should do so again because they will be attacked by Republican opponents this fall whatever they do.

"I've said many times that they've got a vote that Republicans and the insurance industry and others can run against them already," Axelrod said. "What they don't have is the accomplishment. If this bill passes, this year, children with pre-existing conditions will now be covered. There will be an end to lifetime caps and annual caps on what the insurance companies will cover, so if you get sick you won't go broke, if you get sick they won't throw you off your insurance. The doughnut hole will be filled in, so senior citizens will save hundreds of dollars on their prescription drugs. The life of Medicare will be extended, and on and on and on."

The criminal element in the White House is amazing.

Axelrod is wrong about one big point — every member of Congress is not eager to have this debate. Many Democrats wish this whole issue would go away.

The USS Obamacare may become a sinking ship, and if it does, the Democrats will abandon ship big time.

Where is the money to cover all of these expanded programs going to come from, Axelhead? We’re already broke, the country is deeply in debt and we’ve seen no practical initiatives from the White House to stimulate REAL economic growth.

The only answer is to fight you guys tooth and nail and make sure Obama’s nose gets so bloodied in November that he will be little more than a ineffective, neutered figurehead.

It is....and Axelrod...who acts like a GIRL, whose behavioral mannerisms are totally girlish, who whines and blames others and who is obviously overly excited about his role in this disgrace of an administration...uses the term "make my day"?

Next thing ya know, he will slip his jacket aside and demonstrate that he packs. Hee hee!

Oh, ROFLMAO!!!!!

Not even stealing lines from Ronald Reagan (who may have stolen it from Clint Eastwood, which is really OK, since he’s another actor)is going to help these clowns. Their arrogance, and ignorance, is legendary.

Hey Axelrod... just so you know... even the U.S. Constitution is not written in granite. If this bedrock of America can be amended (or in the Dems' thinking, ignored)... this healthcare bill P.O.S. can be modified/scrapped once the Dems lose control of Congress (and hopefully when your boss is kicked to the curb in Jan. 2013).

Peace out and word up dude.

But, Mr. Axelrod, You and Obama have shown us Republicans the way! Screw public opinion! Screw the will of the voters! Use any dirty trick to ram it through! I can't wait until we repeal Obamacare using the methods you have so kindly taught us and while we're at it we will probably ram through every conservative proposal that you have held up for the last 20 yea.

I wonder if anybody remembers that Axelrod at one time was John Edward’s campaign Manager.

EXACTLY! Except I don't WANT to have to do it dirty, if ya catch my drift.

After reading the thread today that showed our nations NEA (National Teachers' Union) has the 'RULES FOR RADICALS' by Saul Alinsky as APPROVED and SUGGESTED READING material...(I am sick of these IDIOTS! No wonder our nation is so dumbed down...ya almost have to think the liberals WANT everyone dumbed down.) I am willing to believe ANYTHING now that I hear or read about liberals.

I didn’t know that.

Is there anyone in Washington who isn’t sleazy or associated with sleazeballs?

And what will he say if his idiot boss, Pelosi, Reid can’t get it passed despite all the dirty tricks? I will enjoy seeing yet another massive fail for these clowns and a win for us lowly peasants.

His arrogance is irritating, but he is essentially correct.

Once this thing passes, the dominoes are going to start tumbling rapidly, and it is going to be extremely difficult if not impossible to repeal all of it. Particularly things like 26 year old “children” being covered on Dad’s policy, people at 150% of the new floating “poverty level” getting Medicaid, etc.

Till now the GOP has not shown the nads for cutting even completely useless Government like the Dept. of Education, so no chance they will yank Obamacare away from “the children” with tear-jerker SEIU attack ads running everywher.

Of course they do. An intelligent, informed country of citizens would be the end of liberalism.

It would be highly entertaining to see Nancy Pelosi screaming at the top of her lungs about mean, evil Republicans using the very same below the belt tactics she used to repeal this monstrosity.

My thoughts exactly, if they can get away with shredding the constitution with this farce, what makes them think we can’t shred this legislation later if it passes. He seems to have forgotten that there was legislation enacted many decades back called prohibition that was later overturned.

This bill, if passed, is going to cause heartbreak and headache for most of the folks in our nation.

duhbama is surrounded with vile people like Axelrod...people duhbama has chosen to guide him.

And the people duhbama has chosen to guide him must TRULY hate their nation and its foundations.

Because, for sure, an offshoot of this horrific bill will be the absolute HATRED for duhbama and as a result, for blacks in general because duhbama will have imposed the wrecking of the best care system in the world for no reason.

Interesting why Axlrod would pose this argument. Is he not aware that by saying it, that he words play to his opponents advantage and not his minions? Strange.

In the past, I would agree with you. However, a new paradigm is coming into effect. In the past, these government programs have benefited many in the middle class because paying for the government programs were put of to future generations. So, many working people could go about their daily lives without feeling the impact of the legislation. Its easy to support what doesn't hurt you directly.

This legislation is aimed squarely at harming the middle class. It is not so much a health care bill as an income redistribution bill. I think the reason this bill, which started out with popular support, is hated by so many is the middle class instinctively recognize this fact. Add to this the facts that many in the middle class are already hurting (they may be employed, but their income has still been reduced by lack of overtime and concessions in wages and benefits, and the fact that there is no money to pay for these programs these government programs are likely to remain highly unpopular.

As for your hypothetical 26 year old - he or she just may become to the big government left in the upcoming years what the peace movement was to the right in the 60's.

Oh, don’t get me wrong. I would love to see the GOP try to repeal it using Slaughter Rules, just to make her head explode. I doubt they have the kahones for it though.

Your point is well taken. I came of age in the 70’s with all of the post-Vietnam Hippie-era Carteresque crap being shoveled at me, but it didn’t take. (unlike our President who seems to have swallowed every last bit of it)
