Obama’s first attempt at ramming through socialized medicine legislation has thus far been an abysmal failure. Obama does everything by first creating a crisis, and then using that crisis to scare people into supporting or voting for an enormous amount of debt and risk that they would normally never support (think stimulus bill). What Obama really needs right now is a new crisis.
Of Course Rahm and the rest of his lackeys are trying to put the best face possible on this epic FAIL, but they know they need a miracle to get the job done. Who better than “the Messiah” and his knack for following Allinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” to the letter, to come up with just the scenario that will make desperate people agree to desperate, potentially deadly, and outrageously expensive things. Don’t think for a second that this crisis, this crisis, or this crisis are not good news to the Rats in the White House.
President Barack Obama returns to Washington next week in search of one thing that can revive his health-care overhaul: a sense of crisis.
Facing polls showing a drop in his approval, diminished support from independents, factions within his Democratic Party and a united Republican opposition, Obama must recapture the sense of urgency that led to passage of the economic rescue package in February, analysts said.
“At the moment, except for the people without insurance, we’re not in a health-care crisis,” said Stephen Wayne, a professor of government at Georgetown University in Washington. “You do need a crisis to generate movement in Congress and to help build a consensus.”
Obama speaks to labor leaders on Sept. 7 and to a joint session of Congress on Sept. 9 as he attempts to rebuild support for his top domestic priority, one that affects 17 percent of the economy. Lawmakers, trying to extend coverage to millions of uninsured Americans and rein in costs, are considering mandates on employers to provide coverage, new rules for insurers, and creating a government program to compete with private insurers such as Indianapolis-based WellPoint Inc.
Obama Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel said the administration made unprecedented health-care progress in eight months.
Yeah, right. And, now they will need a generated crisis (aka more failed Obama policy damage) to get the support they need. Say, a crisis like….
And of course Swine Flu
