Obama: Senator DeMint Is A Big Fat Meanie

Posted by TheJOTUS on July 22, 2009

Apparently Obama is a tad upset that some people aren’t falling in the goose stepping line regarding his joke of a healthcare plan.  So naturally he wants to change the subject and just call the republicans mean. 

At issue are Senator Jim DeMint’s choice of words when said that a defeat on his health-care proposals would be President Obama’s “Waterloo.”  Perhaps a bad anology, but make no mistake, this was the heart of Obama’s campaign.  Support for this trainwreck is tanking, and he is lashing out like Megan McCain after taking away her plate of bacon:

Speaking at a children’s hospital, the president said, “Now, there are some in this town who are content to perpetuate the status quo, are in fact fighting reform on behalf of powerful special interests. There are others who recognize the problem, but believe — or perhaps, hope — that we can put off the hard work of insurance reform for another day, another year, another decade.

“Just the other day,” the president continued, “one Republican senator said — and I’m quoting him now — ‘If we’re able to stop Obama on this, it will be his Waterloo. It will break him.’ Think about that. This isn’t about me. This isn’t about politics. This is about a health care system that is breaking America’s families, breaking America’s businesses, and breaking America’s economy.”

The Democrats have a filibuster proof majority in the Senate and an overwhelming edge in the House, but if health care fails it’ll be the fault of Republicans?  Er…what?  Exsqueeze me?

And DeMint wasn’t done yet, he kept his pimp hand strong:

“The last time the President made grand promises and demanded passage of a bill before it could be reviewed, we ended up with the colossal stimulus failure and unemployment near 10 percent,” said Senator DeMint.

“Now the President wants Americans to trust him again, but he can’t back up the utopian promises he’s making about a government takeover of health care. He insists his health care plan won’t add to our nation’s deficit despite the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office saying exactly the opposite. And today we learn that the President is refusing to release a critical report on the state of our economy, which contains facts essential to this debate. What is he hiding?

“If the actual legislation came close to matching the President’s rhetoric, he would have no problem passing this bill with huge Democrat majorities in both chambers. But Americans aren’t being fooled and are discovering the truth about his plan which includes rationed care, trillions in new costs, high taxes and penalties that will destroy jobs, and even government-funded abortions.

“Let’s be clear, there is no one in this debate advocating that we do nothing despite the President’s constant straw man arguments. Republicans have offered comprehensive health care reform solutions that cover millions of the uninsured without exploding costs, raising taxes, or rationing care. We can give every American access to a health plan they can own, afford and keep without a government takeover.”

Oh, somebody just leveled the playing field.

Bottom line Mr. President, it is about you.  It is about you crushing the health care system, breaking America’s families, breaking America’s businesses, and breaking America’s economy.
