Obama’s Speech Same Old Same Old

Wednesday, September 9, 2009

Barack Obama’s speech before the joint session of Congress will be a re-write of his non-plan for Obamacare. Meaning he’s just jumbled the same talking points he’s been pushing for months and regurgitating them. Here’s a sample.

“I will not stand by while the special interests use the same old tactics to keep things exactly the way they are.  If you misrepresent what’s in the plan, we will call you out.  And I will not accept the status quo as a solution.  Not this time.  Not now.”

Of course Obama is not referring to any of the special interest groups that are already working in the White House, such as AFL-CIO, ACORN, SEIU, George Soros.

“But what we have also seen in these last months is the same partisan spectacle that only hardens the disdain many Americans have toward their own government.  Instead of honest debate, we have seen scare tactics.  Some have dug into unyielding ideological camps that offer no hope of compromise.  Too many have used this as an opportunity to score short-term political points, even if it robs the country of our opportunity to solve a long-term challenge.  And out of this blizzard of charges and counter-charges, confusion has reigned.”

Blah, blah, blah. Blame, blame blame.

Then Obama gives you the glossy stuff, but no hard answers to the nagging questions every American has; how much is this going to cost? Instead he says this.

“Everyone in this room knows what will happen if we do nothing.  Our deficit will grow.  More families will go bankrupt.  More businesses will close.  More Americans will lose their coverage when they are sick and need it most.  And more will die as a result.  We know these things to be true.”

Are you laughing yet? My first response is, “What? Is this Obamanomics?” Spend trillions so we can owe trillions more.

Will you be watching Obama’s desperate attempt to save the capstone of his legislation? David Axelrod really, really hopes so. I just got this email from him

WhiteHouseLogoDear Friend,

Tonight at 8 p.m. ET, the President will address Congress and detail his plan to bring stability and security to Americans who have insurance and affordable coverage to those who don’t. You can watch the speech on television or on, with an exclusive live chat immediately afterwards.

But you don’t need to wait until then to understand what’s at stake. The President has said many times that reform isn’t about him — it’s about a health insurance system that is breaking America’s families and small businesses. Millions of Americans have lost coverage, are denied coverage because of pre-existing conditions, and continually watch premiums skyrocket out of control. That’s why Americans want reform and why Congress must act.

Thank you,

David Axelrod
Senior Adviser to the President

Nancy Pelosi will be beaming because Barack Obama will read every word she wrote.

Eric Cantor sent this,


Don’t let these bastards who are stealing you blind, win this one. Call your Senator or House Representative and just say NO!
