Charles Krauthammer, What Scott Brown’s win means for the Democrats, January 22, 2010, Obama ABC interview, Democrats delusional, Obama and Democrats blame Bush, Obama blames insurance companies

From the Washington Post, January 22, 2010, Charles Krauthammer.

“What Scott Brown’s win means for the Democrats”

“On Jan. 14, five days before the Massachusetts special election, President Obama was in full bring-it-on mode as he rallied House Democrats behind his health-care reform. “If Republicans want to campaign against what we’ve done by standing up for the status quo and for insurance companies over American families and businesses, that is a fight I want to have.”
The bravado lasted three days. When Obama campaigned in Boston on Jan. 17 for Obamacare supporter Martha Coakley, not once did he mention the health-care bill. When your candidate is sinking, you don’t throw her a millstone.

After Coakley’s defeat, Obama pretended that the real cause was a generalized anger and frustration “not just because of what’s happened in the last year or two years, but what’s happened over the last eight years.”

Let’s get this straight: The antipathy to George W. Bush is so enduring and powerful that . . . it just elected a Republican senator in Massachusetts? Why, the man is omnipotent.

And the Democrats are delusional: Scott Brown won by running against Obama, not Bush. He won by brilliantly nationalizing the race, running hard against the Obama agenda, most notably Obamacare. Killing it was his No. 1 campaign promise.

Bull’s-eye. An astonishing 56 percent of Massachusetts voters, according to a Rasmussen poll, called health care their top issue. In a Fabrizio, McLaughlin & Associates poll, 78 percent of Brown voters said their vote was intended to stop Obamacare. Only a quarter of all voters in the Rasmussen poll cited the economy as their top issue, nicely refuting the Democratic view that Massachusetts was just the usual anti-incumbent resentment you expect in bad economic times.”

“The reason both wings of American liberalism — congressional and mainstream media — were so surprised at the force of anti-Democratic sentiment is that they’d spent Obama’s first year either ignoring or disdaining the clear early signs of resistance: the tea-party movement of the spring and the town-hall meetings of the summer. With characteristic condescension, they contemptuously dismissed the protests as the mere excrescences of a redneck, retrograde, probably racist rabble.”

“Democrats must so rationalize, otherwise they must take democracy seriously, and ask themselves: If the people really don’t want it, could they possibly have a point?

“If you lose Massachusetts and that’s not a wake-up call,” said moderate — and sentient — Democratic Sen. Evan Bayh of Indiana, “there’s no hope of waking up.””

    A PRESIDENT WHO CARES MORE ABOUT PROTECTING HIMSELF THAN HIS COUNTRY
    Written by Jack Kelly
    Thursday, 21 January 2010
    There is a silver lining for Democrats in the Brown cloud that has descended upon them. It’s distracted attention from testimony revealing that the intelligence failures with regard to the Christmas bomber were more appalling than we’d been told.
    Yesterday (1/20), as panicked Democrats wondered what Scott Brown’s stunning win in the Massachusetts senate race portends for them, four senior intelligence officials testified before the Senate Homeland Security Committee and the Senate Judiciary Committee about the interrogation, such as it was, of Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the Nigerian who had tried to blow up a Northwest Air Lines flight with a bomb built into his underwear.
    The officials were Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, Director of National Intelligence (DNI) Admiral Dennis Blair, National Counterterrorism Center Chairman Michael Leiter, and FBI Director Robert Mueller. All three stated
    they weren’t consulted before the decision was made to treat Mr. Abdulmutallab as a criminal defendant.
    That decision was made by a senior official at the Justice Department who the Obama administration is unwilling to identify.
    more but I can’t get in there-not a member-for another web-site -“the unwilling to identify” is Holder.

  11. Because Krauthammer is such an impressive person I will repost from previous thread:

    Yes, his diving accident at age 21 altered the course of his life. He is a brilliant man, and quite honestly it would not have mattered what univerisities he attended, but the accident has done little to deter him. He is married with one son, and he has had time to reflect on the seriousness of geopolitical affairs, while the rest of us are fleeing hither and yon.

  12. I should also add that his mother, in her 90’s and apparently as astute as he is, watches him regularly on T.V.

  13. twe,

    That must be the Dems working hard again at denigrating the opposition, Alinsky style.

    Seems to me the Dems are trying hard to play in the new Brown sandbox. Do they really think people are going to fall for this nonsense?

    Thanks for sharing…Linda

  20. I have always admired Charles Krauthammer! He brings balanced insight to whatever he focuses upon!

    The reality is Obama was not qualified for the job of United States President and Commander in Chief. This illogical action is now reaching its logical conclusion!

    The change Obama brought killed the hope the people had!

    Throw the bum out! Throw “O-bum-a” out in 2010. Failure is not an option! Yes we can! Yes we will!

    Margaret Sanger would be so proud! Maybe, they have been talking to Rham, too, since it would be a pity to let a “good crisis go to waste.”

    Glad to read the Pro-Life Groups are exposing their hipocracy.

    Thanks for sharing…Linda

  22. What on earth is the matter with these progressives? Are they really that far removed from the average citizen and our reality? Or are they on a suicide mission? I don’t get it.

    Yes the 2008 election was framed as “anybody but Bush” but the “anybody” the majority (I think) elected is so out of touch and so un American. Nothing about this man resonates American. Nothing!

    If, as some are theorizing, that the R’s remained mute about 0’s eligibility so as to get Jindal to run sometime in the future, then, oh boy, did they ever miscalculate this man and the thieves that currently make up the majority and the peoples reaction to the theft and fraud.

  23. Anyone have a Constitution? Look over Article XII… Discusses The Electors…President Vice President.. But no person constitutionslly ineligble to the office of President shall be eligible to that of Vice-President of the United States.

  24. venice – I concur – Krauthammer is very special and is perfectly made for this time. He’s a master wordsmith and storyteller. Love to read his work and watch him on Fox.

    Just me – wow! thank you for sharing those links. Got through most of them last night. Have one more to go. Also explored Skolnick a bit more and am blown away. Also, thanks for the impressive CIA timeline you put together downstairs…just another thing I’ll need to read.

    Happy Friday Everyone and Happy Birthday OldSalt.

  25. And another thought, when we prosecute all invovled…. What the heck is the media going to say??? Well sure the battle over eligibilty has been going on for 2 years, we ignored it??? Seriously what are they going to say??

  26. Happy Birthday OldSalt, Maddie prays with you and your parents….We are our own little family here. God Bless America.

  27. Margie,

    I think that as conspirators, they’ll be asking when they’ll have the opportunity for parole.

  28. Linda–yep! Never let a crisis go to waste. Vultures!

  29. Whenever a D like Dodd uses scare tactics you know immediately that they are fearful of losing power and influence. That’s what scare tactics are all about. They keep you in line.

    When Krauthammer says “may not”, it’s a euphemism for “does not”.

    Did you also know she is having computer problems?

    She wrote a note on the previous post. Poor girl, she has been through the wringer lately!

    Hope all is well with you at home with mom! I just found out the husband of a good friend of mine will be going to hospice soon…she told us she is preparing for life without him…so many people are having troubles of one kind or another…my prayer book is full; have to get a second one.

    Happy Day…Linda

  33. One last question, did anyone call their local school board? We need to find out how this happened? What are the teaching students about the requirement for President of the United States? I called yesterday… she said he is the president and he is doing a good job, I told her she needs HELP !!

  34. http://content.usatoday.com/communities/theoval/post/2010/01/obama-and-health-care-critical-condition/1
    President Obama and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi: What next on health care?
    CAPTIONBy Evan Vucci, APCritical condition. Life support. Code Blue.
    Any kind of medical cliche can be used to describe the state of President Obama’s health care initiative.
    The election of Republican Scott Brown to the Senate gives the GOP the power to block a final health care bill, so the Obama White House and the Democrats are scrambling to figure out what they can do — if anything.
    “We will take the time it needs to consider the options,” says House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. Can a new negotiated bill “hold the insurance companies accountable? Make it more affordable for the middle class? Does it reduce the deficit? Can we get the votes to pass the approach? We will be able to. We just have to find it.”
    “The outcome of Massachusetts was not going to stop the president from pursuing health care reform,” said spokesman Robert Gibbs. “Has the political environment changed to get that done? Yes.”
    The White House, which spent last year urging lawmakers to pass a health care bill as soon as possible, is now saying they agree with Pelosi that things have to slow down. But they declined to read the last rites to their health care initiative.
    Obama is conducting a town hall meeting today in Ohio, so he may well get a health care question. A lot of people are going to be listening carefully to what he says.

  35. Michelle,

    ” A lot of people are going to be listening carefully to what he says”. Why??

    Lying is second nature to this man. Half the time he doesn’t even know he’s doing it. It comes out faster from his mouth than he can register.

  38. To all who are brave enough to call the Bawney Fwank and Pelosi nutball receptionists to discuss Obama’s eligibility…heads up

    They do not even dispute that he’s eligible any longer, they just scream at you, in a nutshell, “whatcha gonna do about it (the illegal alien living in government housing)?”

    I say we ask them how they will like rotting in jail for treason and what violence they propose to control hundreds of millions of Americans who will not follow an illegal president.

  39. Linda,

    It takes one to know one.

  40. CW – OT – but really important – after you let this topic/thread run for a while, maybe this should be it’s own thread?

    ———————————————————–

    MOST IMPORTANT EVENT IN THE WORLD

    Perhaps. Certainly a profound event for Western Civilization. And I bet you have heard NOTHING on the MSM news about this, and may otherwise know little of it.

    The Trial of Geert Wilders

    Mr. Wilders is a Minister of Parliament in the Netherlands and, if he can stay out of jail, is a leading candidate for Prime Minister. He has been trying to chronicle the Islamic infiltration of Europe, and especially Netherlands, for a long time.

    Netherlands is one of the European countries with the highest population of Muslims. The situation is that the Muslims will not integrate – instead they are infiltrating. The most visible problems range from the most brutish (crime, riots, etc.) to the most intellectual (special treatment, their own laws and accommodations, etc.).

    The general ‘leftist’ response and the choice of most of the European leaders is appeasement. They apparently believe that if enough concessions to the intellectual demands are made, that the brutish behavior will stop. Even more than in the USA, it is extremely not Politically Correct to disagree with this plan.

    Mr. Wilders has been outspokenly non-PC for many months, if not years. He is universally reviled by the ruling elite. He has been non-PC for all this time by saying true things that are ‘forbidden’ to discuss. But even worse, he has been using the Islamic writings, the preaching of the leaders (not just the lunatic fringe), and the documented actions of Muslims, themselves, to bolster his claims that Islamification is dangerous to Western Civilization. His thesis is that the apparent anti-social behavior and rhetoric is indeed an orchestrated plot to subvert as much of Europe as possible – and achieve the universal Islamification that has been the Islamic goal for hundreds of years.

    He believes he is providing a clarion call indicating a clear and present danger.

    His opponents have – through various means – wrangled enough laws and sanctions in-place that they now have to ability to formally charge Mr. Wilders with Hate Crimes. His trial began a few days ago. The BIG ISSUE (for the World and for Western Civilization) is whether they can make their charges stick. Can truth and logical analysis ever become a Hate Crime as opposed to just non-PC. Further – social pressure aside – is it lawful to criminalize speech simply for being non-PC.

    All of these topics are of great interest to Americans and harbingers of things to come. The status of this trial should be daily headlines on the MSM.

  41. A real heartbreaker on FED waste. Also makes the case of economic terrorism against the US via the executive branch:
    http://pajamasmedia.com/blog/head-start-the-166-billion-fed-ed-failure/

  42. venice @ 2:27 pm
    I have never believe one word that came out of Obama’s mouth, the remainder I think he is just confused.
    If one Scott Brown has got them in a panic what
    are they going to do with many Scott Browns? Had they paid any attention to the American people at town hall meetings a/k/a astroturf, tea baggers etc.-our military and citizens facing terrorists-the meltdown of Wall Street happily placed on the backs of Main Street taxpayers they would have had a clue. The majority of Americans are done with him, DNC-Pelosi, Reid.
    Just done with them-They were given every chance and failed miserably. We Tea Party have moved on to the new work of repairing the country, they are not part of the equation.

    Right back at you! 😉

  47. Rocknee,
    I have been to Dateline twice today and can not find a show line up. Yesterday the lineup was still empty.

  48. Michelle,

    The absence of political strategy among the Dems is stupifying. Obama lost to Hillary in the primaries. With Obama’s numbers plummeting, and the strategic importance of the senate vote in Massachusetts, this senate vote had to be coddled, nurtured and paid attention to. Instead Coakley goes on holiday for 2 weeks during her run. When one is blindsighted it’s because the blinders are too thick and long.

    This is what Krauthammer meant when he said Obama is too “ideological”, again another euphemism for “I’ll ram through my ideas” irrespective of the political landscape. And he’s right Bill Clinton for whatever you may think of him did not have this disability.

  49. Off Topic to D2i I heard you on Drkate with Charles and Mario and I think you are totally right about there will be no rioting in the streets if the eligibilty isssue goes to court etc. With this Scott Brown victory I think the Dems are looking for a way out of this huge mess. Hopefully it will be with Charles and Mario!!!

  50. Carlyle,

    Open the windows Washington – we are here to clear our house of your corrupt mentality – look out side – we have overwhelmed your streets today – bigger than the civil rights march – to fight for innocent voices who cannot fight for themselves – and are we on air – Hail NO !!!!!! –
    But we know how big this is and still growing – Thank you Obama for giving us a larger voice with which to be heard !!!!

    If Pelosi is found to be ineligible because she committed fraud in certifying pp, then who would be her successor?

    So…if you go after Pelosi, you kill two birds with one stone, and get to the successor you wanted all along faster, don’t you?

    Question: Could it be those who are working to get Pelosi have an ulterior motive in bypassing the NBC issue?

    Just asking…

    Thanks for your thoughts…Linda

  55. venice @ 2:44 pm
    What I found most interesting about Charles Krauthammer is he is a trained psychiatrist, I’ll bet that training comes in handy.
    Our country is center right and I believe it is 80 per cent of us. The other 20 percent divided by liberal and conservative and 2 per cent of that group the extreme right/left. Our country is now enduring/suffering by the hand of the 1 per cent of the extremely extreme far off the planet and off their rockers- left. No wonder most Americans are very unhappy with Obama’s so called government. It is not only NOT working for them, it is working AGAINST them.
    Since I am a Dem I was fascinated with the fact Scott received 25-30 per cent of their vote-and in other states more to follow. The good news Dems will NOT be receiving contributions, or volunteer work or help in any way shape or form. This type of Dem will either be involved with Tea Party movement or a great Rep candidate like Scott.

  56. What do you think?
    On the 37th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, do you believe abortion is murder?

    The bottom line: There’s a growing chorus of Democrats who aren’t so keen on re-appointing Bernanke just yet. The latest is Pennsylvania Senator Bob Casey.

    If Ben Bernanke is tossed the market will go into a tizzy that will make yesterday seem like child’s play. Even Warren Buffett recently told CNBC that if Ben Bernanke isn’t going to get re-confirmed he wants to know a day in advance (so he can sell stocks).

    It still seems likely that Bernanke will get re-appointed, but the winds are definitely blowing against him. He’s much more in league with Geithner and Summers (ideologically) than he is with current White House hero Paul Volcker.

    So why should Senators vote for him?

    Marc Faber: Barack Obama Is Making Bush Look Like A Genius
    Joe Weisenthal | Jan. 22, 2010, 6:19 AM

    Appearing on Squawk Box Europe, Mr. Gloom Boom Doom slammed Barack Obama, and said he makes George Bush look like a genius in comparison. The reason? Obama won’t let the free market work.

    A little simplistic, yes, but then, Marc Faber isn’t typically known for subtlety.

    went to a racist church for 20years
    hung out with a Domestic terrorist(Bill ayers)
    says he will stand witht he muzzies if the Political winds change against them( from his book)
    and the list goes on and on.

  74. Michelle,

    As a trained psychiatrist he is by definition also a trained physician. As well his premed training was in political science and economics. That means that he has mastered the broadest range of skills that would be required of any human being. When he delivers his opinion, he brings his education, his experience and his abilities to bear. Not a small feat. It is part of his comprehension, his thoroughness and his precision.

    He is way ahead of his colleagues, many of whom are lawyers, economists and journalists , professions that appear to permeate Washington.

    His psychiatric training brings to bear the most important element and that is in sizing up who Obama is as a person. With Obama it is the most critical element to grasp. Many keep referring to Obama’s ivy league education as the foundation of his skill as a politician. That has never been the case in the history of mankind.

    We all know that whether you are a streetsweeper, a skilled tradesman, or a Harvard grad, that the character of the individual is what will define his or her contribution. It is not their native talent alone.

    In that vein Krauthammer is skilled, but he also delivers in a way that is not self aggrandizing. He is indeed a very special person.

    I hope I was not too long winded in my response.

    Prairie……I heard that remark too by Huckabee when he said it on Hannity I think it was…..anyway I think he was trying to say that the FRAUD has a chance to start over if he wants to but he will have to do an about face!!

    What I want to know is where all of these pundits get that he is still personally popular…..I don’t see it…..his rhetoric is mostly disgusting now……it is always about I…I….I…yet he keeps saying it’s not about HIM!!!

    Linda from NY // January 22, 2010 at 3:00 pm

    Benaiah:

    I have some questions for you…

    If pp is found to be ineligible because he is not an NBC, then Pelosi is next in line.

    ———————
    Biden is next not pelosi.

    Negative. If Zero is out, so is Biden. We no longer vote for Prez and VP. It done by a single ticket. So it would go to the next highest vote getter. But that language, from US Code, assumes a time frame that is from the electoral college vote and the certification by congress. Unfortunately because we have inaugurated the unqualified ticket we are in uncharted waters.

  79. Linda from NY // January 22, 2010 at 3:00 pm

    As Don In California noted, Biden is next in line after the Usurper, then Pelosi…

    When the Usurper is exposed and removed from the People’s Office, I imagine Biden will be the acting POTUS.

    Personally, I think Obama, Biden, Peolosi, and all the other enablers should be tried for Treason…

    The opposition provides disinformation in an effort to gain the trust of the sheeple so they can deceive them into believing something other than the truth that an Article II NBC is a citizen who is born in the United States of parents who are citizens. The opposition does not want the sheeple to understand that their hidden agenda is to steal and kill and destroy them…

    John 10:1-2, 10
    I tell you the truth, the man [USURPER] who does not enter the sheep pen [OFFICE OF PRESIDENT] by the gate [ARTICLE II, SECTION 1, CLAUSE 5 OF THE CONSTITUTION], but climbs in by some other way, is a thief and a robber. 2The man who enters by the gate is the shepherd of his sheep.

    10The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy [THE SHEEPLE, THE CONSTITUTION, AND THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA]…

  80. I am back, did anyone call their local school board? Just be polite and ask how they are educating the students on the requirement for the office of United States President. I was hoping to hear what was said.

    Benaiah // January 22, 2010 at 3:53 pm

    I agree with Greg; if pp is out, so is Biden.

    That is why I put Pelosi next in the line of questioning.

    My theory is thus: those who oppose the NBC issue could be motivated by what they perceive will happen and so, they ignore it.

    BTW…I loved your verse…so pertinent to this situation and so true!

    Neil Cavuto is reporting that two DemoCRAP congressman sent a letter to the FRAUD telling him that they want to continue the Bush tax cuts for at least two more years and that means for the rich too…..that should really make his day!!! They are also trying to get other Dems on board with them!!!!

  86. Linda from NY @ 2:53 pm
    I have no idea what the heck the Democratic party is doing-I doubt that they do. Obama Pelosi and Reid 3 birds with one stone. Remember more than one way to skin a cat. I think they have been in the sty for so long, someone clean, decent and respectable like Scott comes along and is a shock to their system. Somewhat as if we were “working girls” and we were arrested and jailed-beaten half to death by our “sugar daddy” pimp and were rescued by a nun.
    I think the Dems are imploding and fast, they really screwed up. I think for the first time since Mr. Wonderful Obama came on the scene they are going to start asking the tough questions. Fawning time is over.

    I would only change one word in your statement; “IF.”

    Actions speak louder than words.

    He is a Muslim, and he admitted that in his speech to the Muslim countries and in his gaffe when he was interviewed by Stephanopolopogis.

    He is an extremist; his policies prove that.

    He has already committed political suicide; he campaigned for three losers.

    However, he will not bring America down!

  98. I called Ron Paul’s office, and asked if Ron Paul thinks he’d be thought of as crazy to broach the ineligibility subject, knowing full well Obama is ineligible…

    THEN OF WHAT USE IS THE ENTIRE CONSTITUTION? In effect, we HAVE no constitution, as our constitutional republic depends entirely on it.

    The idiot stammered, put me through to another idiot whose expertise was in denying Obama’s twice published admission that he is British and becoming abusive. I told him he’s up against a more informed populous and shame on him for trying such lame tactics.

    Ron Paul is no friend of the truth, no defender of the Constitution.

    I saw that interview with George S. Most normal people know their religious affiliation like they know their own name. Obama did say Muslim, until George corrected him, then Obama said Oh Yeah Christian. I thought then as I do know this is the weirdest thing I ever heard.
    I think the Dems know they are pretty well cooked. Good will-a thing you never want to lose. No matter what Obama tries to do now-it’s gone. People are on to all of the lies, the little boy who cried wolf did it once too often.

  107. The walk for life today brings to my mind the interview Rick Warren had with McCain and SteveO during the 2008 election….The question to the candidates was ‘When does life begin’? McCain answered ‘Life begins at conception’…..SteveO answered ‘That question is above my paygrade’….I knew nothing of the eligibility issue at that time but I believed with my whole heart that such a dimwit could never be elected as POTUS I believed he would be an insult to the American people…Am looking forward to O’s educational records being revealed he has none of the genteel mannerisms or knowledge of protocol that would accompany the educational background he professes….

  108. Jacqlyn Smith @ 4:41 pm
    New I think is why I prefer used, some nice person has worked out all the bugs. In the Chicago suburbs used cars were a gigantic market. People have 2 cars there, one good one for normal use, and a beater (the uglier the better-that ran good) for the guys who worked in the city, so that they had a car to go home in. If new it would be stolen right away. Chop shops were a big problem-they would bust them as often as they could.

  109. Truth Now…..you nailed the problem……we never get to talk to the officials themselves….always a staffer……I feel most of the time I have wasted my time……I wonder if they even pass the messages on!

    I don’t call, but email and I know the staffers handle that too with the urgent business going on in all those Senate offices..(sarcasm)and I’m sure the messages and topics are handled like the emails.

    Topics/messages are categorized and when they reach a number classifying them as constituent urgency, etc…I think then a letter is mailed out to us and our little concerns are addressed(sarcasm again)

    Question for the month by usapatriots-shout

    On January 15, 2010 Barack Obama SIGNED a check for 60 billion dollars ($60,000,000,000) to Andy Stern’s Service Employer International Union(SEIU). This check was related to the union’s so called “Cadillac insurance program). Now that it appears the government takeover universal health care program may not go forward, will SEIU return the $60,000,000,000?
