“Obama tells congressional leaders he won’t negotiate on shutdown, debt“???… oh, how deliciously ironic. If Obama won’t negotiate on any of those things — or anything — what is he willing to negotiate on?
Things have gotten out of hand. (Actually, they got out of hand long ago.) There was no reason that the Democrats and the President of the United States of America could then (or now) truthfully feel their plan for health care reform was so perfect — so very perfect — so very, very perfect — because they are “all-knowing” — that a little devil’s-advocacy and balance wasn’t in order, rather than a defiant blow-off of everything and anything not-their-way.
No reason, but it happened.
Now we have tons of people losing their jobs, or at least their full-time hours, and definitely their certainty of what tomorrow brings. No longer does the need of the worker matter — the only things that matter are the whims of Obamacare and the dear Democrats & Pals that claim to so care for the people’s well-being.
And, rather than try to explain what they were thinking and why they thought (and continue to think) they were right and meant/mean well — they start in with the name-calling (calm rhetoric) and low blows towards any who do not agree with them, not to mention those special terms …
In recent weeks, however, Obama and his aides and Democratic allies have accused the Republican legislators of being anarchists, suicide-bombers, hostage-takers, arsonists, political terrorists, fanatics, blackmailers, and ideological crusaders.
“What we’re not for is negotiating with people with a bomb strapped to their chest,” Dan Pfeiffer, Obama’s top media adviser, said in a CNN interview this week. ~Obama: I use ‘calm’ rhetoric, unlike ‘hostage takers’ (The Daily Caller — 7:16 PM 10/02/2013)
The irony of the Obama Administration — their willingness to call names (calm rhetoric), refuse to budge and then dare to project their words and behavior on others. So, are we to be impressed and feel more secure in Obamacare and this administration now that we know they are pretty darn good at retaliating, hitting below the belt and name-calling (calm rhetoric)? Sure makes me want to rush out and buy me an Obamacare plan — how about you?
