There Are Two Ways To Read This

The first is exactly how Jammie Wearing Fool does: It is all about Obama as far a Obama is concerned.

Well, that’s nonsense. Of course it’s all about him.

A telling episode recounted by Senate Finance ranking member Charles Grassley reveals the Obama administration might be more worried than they are letting on that a Republican senator’s comparison of the healthcare overhaul to Waterloo might be dangerously close to the truth.

Grassley said he spoke with a Democratic House member last week who shared Obama’s bleak reaction during a private meeting to reports that some factions of House Democrats were lining up to stall or even take down the overhaul unless leaders made major changes.

“Let’s just lay everything on the table,” Grassley said. “A Democrat congressman last week told me after a conversation with the president that the president had trouble in the House of Representatives, and it wasn’t going to pass if there weren’t some changes made … and the president says, ‘You’re going to destroy my presidency.’

Somebody please send Baracky a waaaahmbulance.

Oh wait, are they covered by his plan?

Do read it all. For the record, I do not think this is not all about Obama as far as Obama is concerned.  There is also another thing to consider here, however. Obama is a master at manipulation, as is his chief adviser, Mr. Astroturf himself, David Axelrod. Both have demonstrated – repeatedly – their willingness to use any trick in the book to get what they want.

I don’t think either one is above making sure this got said to garner some sympathy and eke out a bit of support from Congressional Democrats who are looking down both barrels of some very, very dismal internal poll numbers. The incident I posted about yesterday is extremely telling. It indicates that Democrats are in real trouble on this lousy, high-cost, government-employee-exempt, elderly-killing “health care” plan. If people are laughing when a Congressman claims the bill will cut costs, it is not a good sign for their reelection prospects.

But Obama’s not at all above shedding a few crocodile tears in order to get his way.

    I have sort of mentioned this here before, but the fact is, even after his November victory, whenever I hear pundits talking about “Obama the master politician” I acknowledge that he won the nomination and the Presidency, but I just don’t get it. With a “master politician” you can see clearly, or just sense at least, that he sets his adversaries up for a fall, that he acts in way that looks odd, and then a year later you say “ahhh, now I get it” and generally conveys a sense that he has a clear strategy, just not one that you may happen to understand or that he is inclined to spell out.

    I get NONE of that from this guy, and never have for a minute. I’ve said earlier, the only thing this guy has to guide him is leftist ideology, and his decisions are merely when turn the dail up to 9 or down to 3 at any given moment. Even THAT decision could be strategic, but I don’t think it is for Obama, it’s just a decision to made today.

    Obama is a salesman. Simple as that. Some salesmen are very successful, but if that is all they are, they got no business being CEO.

    I’ve been saying for a long time that everything is about the Obamessiah’s massive ego. Everything he says or does is to make sure he gets a few more minutes of airtime on TV, He has no leadership qualities whatsoever. He’s nothing more than a stuffed suit playing with smoke and mirrors.
