(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Demorats: BLACKMAILING & EXTORTION For ObamaKare Votes!

As I wrote before, the Demorats will do anything lawful or unlawful to assure they have sufficient votes to ram ObamaKare down the throats of Americans.

Now, they have taken the fine art of vote acquisition from the questionable to the obscene:

Nebraska Senator Ben Nelson (D) has been told, essentially, that unless he votes with the rest of the Demorats on ObamaKare, the Obama Administration will shut down Offutt Air Force Base in Nebraska which, in turn, threatens ten thousand jobs.

And Obama creates jobs??  He cares about Americans??

This is beyond heinous.  This is beyond backbiting, name-calling, midnight phone calls, threats of removal from plum appointments and commissions.

Further: this imperils the very security of the United States of America.

And all because the Obama Administration must, absolutely must ram down ObamaKare and it doesn't care one whit about who has to be cast aside or threatened or hurt or even if it could place the entire security of the United States in jeopardy.

From the breaking story at StopTheACLU:

As our source put it, this is a “naked effort by Rahm Emanuel and the White House to extort Nelson’s vote.” They are “threatening to close a base vital to national security for what?” asked the Senate staffer.

Indeed, Offutt is the headquarters for US Strategic Command, the successor to Strategic Air Command, and not by accident. STRATCOM was located in the middle of the country for strategic reasons. Its closure would be a massive blow to the economy of the state of Nebraska, but it would also be another example of this administration playing politics with our national security.

Ladies and gentlemen, citizens of the United States of America, if this doesn't expose Mr Obama and his administration and sycophants as the massively-dangerous idealogues they are, then you are beyond hope and haven't a handful of functioning brain cells extant.

Z: thank you kindly.

So, the question IS: does Ben Nelson "sack up" and FIGHT for his state? AGAINST this blackmailing action?

At what point do we do our "Popeye" imitation-
"That's all I can stands, I can't stands no more!"

They have no idea how angry middle America is with them.

CJ & Greybeard: the tolerance level rests with the electorate.

I can't possibly state I understand it's threshold.

But I'll wager the future will be, at best, a bit of chaotic.

True or not, this is how politics in Washington are done. Favors & threats with back-room deal-making are the norm, and rational debate is just for show.

The government by the people and for the people is totally out of control...

Hell hath no fury as a liberal scorned...

Now they're going after Joe Lieberman's family to "punish" him for losing them single payer government socialized medicine.

This is why I hate "progressives". They're so "tolerant".

You can't get to 60 votes with the 'Public Option' and you can't get to 60 votes without it.

I am sure there will be backroom wheeling and dealing with taxpayer funds... they are ever so ready to use public money to get 'good things' done at very high costs.

What really gets me is that a poor but industrialized country with a far higher population has a far higher approval of medical care and yet has a very different, private system without their government's help. And far lower costs not only in real cost but in terms of household budget goes to healthcare than we have in the US. But I guess that learning something from other cultures only pertains to those that take authoritarian stances towards their own people... not those that leave their people alone. We can learn from those less well off than we are on how to do these things... but only if we drop the idea that Europe is a gold standard on health care. But I guess the Left is just too Eurocentric to care about learning from other cultures.

Tom: politics and sausage. Ecch.

FJ: "tolerance"? Yes, Hell hath NO fury as such. . .

AOW: and I'm sure the Demorats aren't sorry; just sorry their plans were unearthed.

Malcontent: so, thanks indeed to Z and thanks for visting and commenting.

Johnnycee: my thanks to you for stopping by, for taking the time to visit and comment; ugly is doing the administration a kindness.

AJ: precisely. Apparently this admin can only learn from those nation-states with which they WISH to learn and/or model.

You hit the nail on the head here buddy. This isn't politics, it's extortion, Chicago style. FDR would be proud. Well done.
