Bloviating Zeppelin: Obaka's Threat

Bloviating Zeppelin

(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.

Obaka's Threat

From the UK Telegraph:

Barack Obama has said he will not campaign for any Democratic congressmen who fails to support health care reform.

My first thought: is that actually a threat, or more of a promise?

Mark Hemingway of the Washington Examiner writes:

I bet those Democrats who are voting no are wondering if they can get that promise in writing. Obama may help with fundraising, but those Dems in competitive districts probably don't see an association with the president as being of much help -- again, just ask Martha Coakley, Jon Corzine or Creigh Deeds.

Thumbscrews and racks, anyone? We know waterboarding's out.

Don't count waterboarding out. Behind closed doors these people will do anything for a yea vote. I saw Clyburn on Fox today, shamelessly supporting the Slaughter slaughter of the Constitution, saying the bill had already received 60 votes and that's all that is necessary.

A lot of Dems trying to hold onto their seats are breathing a sigh of relief at his "promise." His arrogance knows no bounds.

It makes me wonder if all publicity is good publicity. Having Obama back one's campaign will potentially lead to publicity - good or bad. Regardless, I think it has potential to further one's campaign despite Obama's steadily declining approval rating.

Most Americans are probably not as informed as BZ or many of the bloggers here. Simply having the president behind a campaign might seem appealing to them. It sure wouldn't to me.

haven't the last four people that he campaigned for lost? If it were me I'd be lining up to keep him off of my campaign.

Obama support HAS been a death knell, I hope he campaigns for ALL the Dems that vote FOR this debacle...

Get em out one way or another...

Sorry dudes, Obama was elected by a landslide to do exactly this. Reform Health care. You bitch as you will, you'll all benefit from it.

Brain Dead, Obama was elected because the GOP is even more stupid than YOU are...

They ran John McCain, and if THAT isn't stupid, I don't know what is...

And as to us ALL benefiting from this, a nation in bankruptcy is NOT a benefit to anyone, but a Brain Dead moron wouldn't be able to grasp that part of the equation...

Tell me Brain Dead, if it's such a benefit, WHO is paying for this? The RICH people? Are you that stupid? Do you honestly buy in to that BS about taxing only the wealthy?

bd: wow. 52%. What a mandate (sound of me snoring). What a landslide. Hand me that ham sandwich while I benefit from eating a ham sandwich. That's as much of a benefit as I'll get from ObakaKare.

TF: excellent notations. And, oh yeah, bd, our AAA national credit rating is in jeopardy because SOMEone (gee, who would that be??) in current office doesn't know how to stop spending.

MelutuSocrates: thanks for the comment, thanks for stopping by, thansk for taking the time to read my little blog and please come back! Some Demorats are distancing themselves from Mr Obaka, though it is publicity. Thanks for the compliment as well, indeed.

My thoughts exactly when I read the threat. I bet as TF said, most Dems would want that threat in writing.

52% of the vote with 51% of the eligible population voting... about 25% of the people voted for Obama.

The NSDAP did much, much, much better than that getting 40% from 80% turnout. Mind you giving them lots of power didn't help Germany out after 1932, so I have my doubts on doing more with less in the US with Obama. But then very few tyrants come in with a 'mandate' of the actual majority behind them.

I just got my census form today. Should I put my race as American? What am I allowed to answer, constitutionally? HELP BZ

I don't want to give them any info I don't have to.

Chris: I have a problem with the census myself. I seem to have misplaced it. I just can't seem to find it.

Obaka won't campaign for them, I suspect many don't want that at this point in time. I would think that most worry about campaign chest funds drying up and little money coming in from the DNC. That's there big worry here should they go against the leadership.

Ya'll are silly. I'm filling out the census as "afro-hispanic-american". Redistricting here I come!

Jinksto: damn baby, why can't I find it when I actually want it?

And how is hispanic not a race? It says hispanics will not be considered as a race, instead as an origin. Aren't all races origins? And are they trying to pander to the illegals by being pc and not counting them as a race?

Race - Other... check...

Blank line... hmmm... 'Present'

Works for the President on his legislative votes so it should work fine for me.
