Okay Already


Time time time
Be be be
Grow grow grow
Show show show
No no no

What is it that you think that you understand?
Who is it, God is laughing, laughing at your plans.

Everybody knows how not to be one.
Everybody knows how to just have fun.
Everybody knows what the hell they’ve done.
Everybody knows…

And so you think you’re misunderstood
So you think that you’re just no good.

You can’t keep from the wrong from not being right
You can’t make a black hole want to be bright
You can’t turn your back on your own life
You can’t turn your back…

Don’t have the time not to wonder why
It’s still got to be hello or goodbye
Take the time to grow something that ain’t gone
Take the time to show what where you belong

You already know how to be that strong
You already know…

I’m tired.

    Rahm Emanuel famously said that you “never want a serious crisis to go to waste.”  And certainly the sense of crisis earlier in the year helped the White House pass the $787 billion stimulus package. But where stands the rest of the Obama legislative agenda? Healthcare. The House will likely pass a bill this weekend, but big difference remain with the Senate, including paying for the plan and what to do about a public option. Cap-and-trade. Kerry-Boxer is going nowhere which is why Kerry and Graham are working on a a dual-track approach. Financial regulatory reform. The House and the Senate have completely different notions about what to do about system risk regulation. Plus there may be new efforts to try and “shrink” the banks and limit the scope of future activities. See you in 2010, Obama Agenda!

    Accomplice to Evil Redux


    Alas, their contempt is not limited to their own tyrants. It extends to President Obama, who today issued a masterpiece of appeasement and
    all but groveled in begging the leaders of the Islamic Republic to make a deal:

    I have made it clear that the United States of America wants to move beyond this past, and seeks a relationship with the Islamic Republic of Iran based upon mutual interests and mutual respect.

    He could not spare a single word for the plight of the people of Iran, who were being beaten, clubbed, stabbed and shot as he issued his statement.

    He went on:

    We do not interfere in Iran’s internal affairs. We have condemned terrorist attacks against Iran. We have recognized Iran’s international right to peaceful nuclear power. We have demonstrated our willingness to take confidence-building steps along with others in the international community.

    We have accepted a proposal by the International Atomic Energy Agency to meet Iran’s request for assistance in meeting the medical needs of its people. We have made clear that if Iran lives up to the obligations that every nation has, it will have a path to a more prosperous and productive relationship with the international community.

    This is Jimmy Carter all over again, and just as Carter’s appeasement of the Islamic Republic led to the death of countless innocents, in Iran and around the world, so Obama’s appeasement will do the same. He, and his administration, are accomplices to evil. From Iran, via Twitter, comes the bottom line:

    Gee the people of Iran seek to really CHANGE things and Obama says, let’s negotiate w/ the Nazis

    Just so.

    “House Call” from c-span.org

    House Republicans joined thousands of “tea party” protesters in a gathering on the West Front of the Capitol days before the House was expected to vote on the bill. Speakers criticized House Democratic health reform proposals, saying they were an irresponsible and costly government takeover of health care. The audience, holding signs and waving banners, often responded with shouts of “kill this bill.”

    24 No Votes (How many are needed?)

  26. blessedistruth Says:

    Today’s House Vote, by the Numbers


    By my own count the Speaker and the President are light at least ten votes — and could be light as many as twenty three — depending on the dynamic on the House floor.

    The problem is that some yes votes could get changed to no as the loss becomes apparent — why take a beating for a tough vote when the thing is going down?

    Members of Congress will not take a beating, just for the sake of taking a beating. They will switch votes, and that is how you get to the fifty to fifty-five House Dems voting no.

    The smart play for the Speaker is to don the robes of Mother Protector —I will save my House Members from Walking the Plank — we are waiting for the Senate to vote first. That way her House Members are protected against the bill dying in the Senate, without having taken a tough vote.

    As one Senate Dem lobbyist told me yesterday, “Reid can get on the bill, he just can’t get off.” Translating from Washington-speak: Senator Reid can get past the filibuster of the motion to proceed, he just cannot end the filibuster against the bill itself. It is like Senator Reid’s own version of Hotel California hell — he can check in but he can never leave.

    This is why the smart play for the Speaker and the White House is to punt. And Harry Reid’s offense takes the field.

    Reid then takes the blame if he can’t get into the end zone. The Speaker merely points out the obvious: I was acting in the best political interest of my members. Why should we take tough votes on Medicare cuts, guns, immigration, abortion, taxes, spending, mandates (government control) and watch the Senate fail? (Again.)

    But the continued forever quest for the holy-health care grail is making her look like Captain Ahab and the search for the Great White Whale — which in the end he found — it killed him, his ship and all but one of his crew.

    If the reaction to waiting for the Senate is an acknowledgment that Senator Reid will fail, then this underlines even stronger the reason why the vote should wait — unless the goal really is to force the political death of some of the red state Democrats.

    (Interesting take. I guess we’ll see.)

    Some shooting victims improve, but not all out of the woods


    W. Roy Smythe, chief of surgery for Scott & White Memorial Hospital in Temple, said several of those who were admitted into the hospital Thursday are now home.

    Smythe said that of the 10 patients who were originally admitted, four have gone home, one may go home today, and of the six who were in the ICU on Thursday, only two are left.

    “The two patients who remain in the ICU are no longer on ventilators and have been quite stable,” he said, adding, “so a lot of progress has been made.”

    “There is a possibility that some of these patients have been physically impaired for the rest of their lives, and there is certainly no doubt that many of them will be psychologically impaired for the rest of their lives,” Smythe said.

    Speaking about Fort Hood police officer Sgt. Kimberly Munley, who together with her partner Senior Sgt. Mark Todd are credited with stopping Hasan, Perry said, “She’s very understated; a person who understands the gravity of what occurred but also a classic public servant who is not interested in anything but getting on with her life and hopefully never having an event like this ever occur again.”

    “From the instant the suspect opened fire,” Perry said, “the better element of human nature kicked in. Sgt. Kimberly Munley, for instance, Mark Todd, who raced towards the sound of the gunfire, will be appropriately regarded as heroes in the future. There is no telling how many lives they saved, because of their selfless and purposeful actions, and we’re fortunate to have first responders like that.”

    The governor also said that the Texas Rangers were involved in the investigation immediately after the shooting. He said the Rangers were involved in gathering evidence and taking witness statements.

    Final vote coming around 11 p.m.

    according to House Democratic leadership aides. Dems were shooting for a vote around 6 p.m., but the pace of the debate so far makes that virtually impossible. Debate on amendments hasn’t even started yet.


  41. blessedistruth Says:

    A view from the left

    Ezra Klein at Washington Post

    The amendment is expected to pass with relative ease. Republicans will join with anti-choice Democrats to push it over the finish line.

    Once the amendment passes, the bill is cleared for a vote, and all parties expect that vote to succeed.

    Today looks likely to end with a historic, and important, vote.

    A vote that is a first step towards helping more than 30 million people secure health-care coverage, and making sure hundreds of millions are better protected from the vagaries of the insurance industry.

    But Stupak’s amendment is a bitter start. It is, however, not the end.

    Even if it muscles into the House bill, it will also have to pass in the Senate, and then survive conference, before it becomes law.

    (Perhaps, but that is also true of any public “option.”)

    Long time ago, I predicted House bill would include public “option.” Senate bill would not. Then trigger compromise in conference.

    Let’s say final Senate bill gets passed because Reid caves on public “option.”

    What if state opt-out, for example, reinserted in conference.

    When bill goes back to Senate will it need 50 or 60 votes?

    That’s what worries me.

    The Morning After

    Is this the high-water mark for ObamaCare?


    Now the focus swings to the Senate, where Harry Reid will have to gain supermajorities at least twice to allow the bill to proceed to a final vote.

    That seems unlikely, although not impossible.

    The process will slow down considerably from the jam-down Pelosi conducted in the lower chamber, perhaps even to a crawl if Tom Coburn makes good on his threat to have the bill read in its entirety on the Senate floor.

    That will leave plenty of time for ObamaCare opponents to find all of the taxes, mandates, and government intrusions that will make it even less popular as it sits in the Senate.

    Even before Coburn’s threat, Democrats had pushed expectations for the bill out to late January — which makes the politics of the bill even more fraught for Democrats, at the start of an election year.

    Democrats have another problem, even in the House.

    The Senate is not considering the Pelosi plan, but one they wrote themselves.

    Unless Reid pulls his own bill out of consideration and substitutes Pelosi’s — which is a possibility — that sets up a conference committee and second vote in each chamber, assuming that the Senate passes anything at all.

    If that happens, a conference committee will have to meet to produce another bill that would then go for a full floor vote in each chamber.

    If abortion funding makes its way back into the bill, or if mandates or taxes increase, or if conscience protections get stripped, then all of the hurdles that Pelosi barely cleared the first time return, and without the ability to amend the bill

    (conference reports get straight up-or-down votes without amendments in order to have both chambers pass identical legislation for the President to sign.)

    That means

    *** another shot at a filibuster *** (This is what I was wondering about. So anything that comes out of conference will also need 60 votes. That’s good.)

    and a lengthy bill reading in the Senate, and at least a chance to hold Bart Stupak’s pro-life coalition in the House under the spotlight to find out whether they will vote their conscience or bow to Pelosi.

    We always thought the fight was in the Senate, so the only real surprise yesterday was how weak Pelosi actually was on ObamaCare.

    Our focus now has to shift to those red-state Senators who will have to explain to voters their potential support of a bill that imposes unconstitutional mandates and trillions of dollars in new costs on a government that can’t pay its bills now.

    And in this case, we’ll only need two of them to stop the runaway tyranny of the Democratic agenda.

  46. blessedistruth Says:


    Overall, 49% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the President’s performance. Fifty percent (50%) disapprove.

    Consumer confidence has fallen to the lowest level since July. Nationally, just 19% of adult consumers say their own personal finances are getting better while 50% say they are getting worse. Those figures have changed little since the beginning of 2009, despite declining pessimism about the overall economy.

    “But it’s clear that he was, one, under personal stress and, two, if the reports that we’re receiving of various statements he made, acts he took, are valid, he had turned to Islamist extremism.”

    Lieberman said if the shootings were fueled by such viewpoints it was the worst act of terrorism in America since the attacks of September 11, 2001.

    “Therefore, if that is true, the murder of these 13 people was a terrorist act and, in fact, it was the most destructive terrorist act to be committed on American soil since 9/11.”

    The committee’s investigation would work in collusion with any federal investigation by the Army or FBI, Lieberman said.

    Ezra Klein the Realist

    But it was also sobering.

    Harry Reid’s job will be harder.

    Health-care reform passed the House with 50.5 percent of the vote. It will need 60 percent in the Senate.

    Pelosi had the luxury of losing 40 Democrats.

    When it comes to beating the filibuster, Reid probably won’t be able to lose even one.

    (So centrist Senate Dems will probably vote for cloture to begin debate, but cloture vote to end debate very much up in the air. The big question — will government-run public “option” be tossed in favor of trigger or coops or state opt-in with trigger in order to end debate? I read that anything that comes out of conference also subject to filibuster, so chances are public “option” won’t make final cut. Some on the right doubt anything will reach Obama’s desk. I wouldn’t be too sure about that.)

    Eighteen Democrats from McCain-voting districts backed the bill.

    Among this subset, seven-term Rep. Marion Berry of Arkansas represents the most pro-McCain district (59 percent).

    He’s more politically secure than other “McCain Democrats” who voted for the bill, including first-term Rep. Tom Perriello of Virginia and second-term Rep. Zack Space of Ohio.

    The National Republican Congressional Committee blasted Perriello for his vote, issuing a press release that said “ Tom Perriello ’s career was pronounced dead” after his vote.

    Perriello said that the bill would reduce federal deficits, is fair to rural hospitals and bans federal funding of abortion.


    One congressman who will certainly be feeling the pain after last night’s House vote on ‘health care reform’ is Tom Perriello.

    Americans for Prosperity pronounced Mr. Perriello’s political career dead at 11:16pm EST on November 7, 2009.

    In a statement they said the “Cause of demise: Political Malpractice. (aka voting for socialized medicine and voting to send us to jail if we dont buy a health policy.)”

    In a district that gave Gov.-elect Bob McDonnell 61% this week, Perriello – who won by 727 votes last year – just voted for the tax-raising, Medicare-cutting government healthcare takeover after claiming for months that he opposed it. “

    AFP have rallies organized for tomorrow Monday November 9 at Tom Perriello’s District Offices: for more information please go to their website.

    Rep. Deal Wants Obama’s Birth Certificate; Let the Blowback Begin!


    Apparently Rep. Deal knew he was going to stir up quite the proverbial hornet’s nest by seriously suggesting that he was going to ask the President to see his birth certificate. So, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution (h/t PeachPundit), the castigations are now beginning.

    As you read through what I post from the article, below, I’m going to interject my own commentary into what the included public figures say, because I think most of them are seriously full of it; the idea that somehow someone is considered to be, essentially, other than rational for daring to question the President is, itself, asinine:


    “I have looked at the documentation that is publicly available and it leaves many things to be desired,” Deal said in an interview Friday.

    Deal’s statement came a day after he noted in an online chat that he would join other U.S. House members in writing the president and asking that he release a copy of his birth certificate.


    Welcome to the club, Rep. Deal. Some of us have been questioning this man with only the image of an alleged document for more than a year because there’s got to be more that could be available regarding this man’s background.

    I only wonder who these “other U.S. House members” are.

    (I would be happy if the various state legislatures passed a law requiring that someone somewhere actually CHECKS the eligibility of presidential candidates. Someone in each state should be the responsibility party and not just say they thought it was someone else’s job to do that.)
