    Default Boehner attacks WH for doing what Boehner Demands

    GOP demands White House post health care proposal online, then attacks WH for doing exactly that

    Here is one from the "negotiating in good faith" files.

    On February 8th, Republican House leader John Beohner sent a letter to the White House, demanding that the White House post online any health care proposal it wished to discuss at the health care summit:


    If the President intends to present any kind of legislative proposal at this discussion, will he make it available to members of Congress and the American people at least 72 hours beforehand?
    So, four days later, the White House accepted this demand, and announced it would post a legislative proposal online more than 72 hours before the summit:


    Since this meeting will be most productive if information is widely available before the meeting, we will post online the text of a proposed health insurance reform package.
    So, naturally, the next day, Boehner attacked the White House for giving into his demand:


    "A productive bipartisan discussion should begin with a clean sheet of paper," Boehner said in a statement.
    I see.

    Looks like Boner is getting scared.

    Rachel Maddow had a great segment last night about hypocrisy of Boehner and the Repugs.

    “Kilgore Trout once wrote a short story which was a dialogue between two pieces of yeast. They were discussing the possible purposes of life as they ate sugar and suffocated in their own excrement. Because of their limited intelligence, they never came close to guessing that they were making champagne.”

    It was an interesting segment. Left and Right should "experience" it.

    Its because they were thinking they could bully the president and get away with it and he would not respond. Between the debacle at the televised GOP house meeting to their reaction to Obama agreeing to have a half day healthcare meeting televised and now this...they are scared and scrambling because they have no real ideas and they know this and fear being exposed as the obstructionist hypocrites they really are.

    The Republicans have had control of the narrative for months now. As David Plouffe starts to have an effect on this Administration's message, the Right is becoming wary of what might transpire. They are scared that Mr. Obama may just get a hold of the narrative again.

    Mr.Obama misjudged the situation. He didn't think the Republicans were going to be as black hearted as they have been. He didn't think they would misrepresent as much as they have been. He should have seen it coming during the campaign with the films of the right wingers going into Palin rallies and calling him a terrorist. He should have seen it when that lady called Mr. Obama an Arab at that McCain town hall.

    Nope. He got elected and immediately went into policy mode. He should have had a little in reserve for the fight. He should have had his team geared up for a fight. He should have never left things for the House and the Senate to run.

    But, hindsight is 20-20. I hope now he is "expose the Republican" mode. Then he can govern.

    The Republicans have had zero control for months now. The moderate democrats refused to get on board with CommieCare. Why is it no one on the left ever mentions this and tries to blame the failure of Obama's far left agenda on Republicans? Obama has proven himself to be dishonest and arrogant. The credibility he's lost with the American people he will not be able to get back. I just hope he campaigns with some of these democratic incumbents to give them the kiss of death.


    Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof.

    Why do you NOT want to take credit for the "failure of Obama's far left agenda." I would imagine a partisan would be proud of it. Below you will see why they are NOT:

    The Republicans have had control of the message. There is no getting around that. Shame on the Obama Administration for letting that happen. But, if the control of the narrative changes, watch what happens next. Boner and gang know what could happen, and they are pooping their pants over it.

    You speak about dishonesty. Well, that's part of the Republican narrative, isn't it? So, what happens when the narrative gets around to all the Republican Amendments that went into both the House and Senate bills. You know. The Amendments the Republicans put in there, only to vote against their own amendments. I don't know how many there were, but I think there were quite a few. Gee, do you think Boner and gang are afraid their hypocritical methods might come out to the American people?

    What happens when the American people see that the Republicans are using that same type of tactic time and time again? Do you think they will be pleased?

    Now. Will exposing the Republican garbage prevent losses in November for the Dems? NO WAY. But it may prevent a turnover in the majority in at least one of the houses of Congress. Let's see if Mr. Obama can really change the narrative, shall we.

    Oh. Mr. Obama should have started with Medicare for All. He could have sold that. Then you could call everyone a Commie. I imagine your parents have a Socialist ID card, or are getting close to the age when they will get one. Be proud.
