Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Night and Day, “Democrats and 51 votes” edition

Dems (including Obama) in 2005, when they feared the GOP majority would use the “nuclear option” for judicial confirmations, can be seen in this video montage saying one thing…

BIDEN: I pray to God when the Democrats take back control we don’t make the kind of naked power grab you are doing.

Isn’t that adorable?  Democrats invoking the name of a God they regularly reject…how precious!  Well, clearly God wasn’t paying any attention to the Vice-Plagiarist, judging by their “naked power grab” today.

Dems today.

“They should stop crying about reconciliation as if it’s never been done before,” Reid said.

Following Senate Democrats’ weekly luncheon, Reid said “nothing is off the table” but that “realistically, they should stop crying about this. It’s been done 21 times before.”

Notes Ed at Hot Air:

Dianne Feinstein said on the Senate floor that “it begins with judicial nominations, next will be executive appointments, and then legislation.” Now, Democrats want to skip over the first two — which never happened — and leap right to legislation. Chuck Schumer called the 2005 suggestion to exempt judicial nominations from the filibuster as “almost a temper tantrum”; if that was the case in 2005, what does 2010 represent? A psychotic break from reality? Straitjacket time?

Flaming hypocrites.  Good thing their reign of terror is about to come to a much deserved end.

Quote of the day, “Canuck province’s premier thinks socialized medicine is awesome for you, not so much for him”

Remember the Newfoundland premier who flew to the U.S. for heart surgery?  Well, he’s got this to say about his decision to seek medical care outside of Canuckistan:

“This is my heart, it’s my health, it’s my choice.”

Ah, I see.  The choice that he would like to deprive his people of, in terms of medical care, is a choice that he was happy to make.  He could have been a little more honest about his choice, though:

“Did some checking, of course, and what was ultimately done to me, the surgery I eventually got … was not offered to me in Canada,” he said.

But it is available in his home country, a point that cardiologists fervently made last night.

“It’s his body, it’s his money, hopefully, but don’t tell us the operation cannot be done here. It can be done,” said Arvind Koshal, director of cardiac surgery at the Mazankowski Alberta Heart Institute in Edmonton.

Somewhat buried is this nugget:

Some of the best mitral valve surgeons are in Toronto and Montreal, he said, noting that some even use robots, commonly employed in minimally invasive surgery. The wait times for cardiac surgery in Canada are relatively short, he added, saying such surgery could have been done within weeks.

To my Canuck visitors, let me fill you in on a little secret here:  In America, we don’t have waiting periods of weeks to get seen for heart surgery.  We don’t think “weeks” is a “relatively short” period of time to wait.  We tend to think heart surgery is a big deal and stuff.  We’re kind of funny that way.

Williams does try to weasel his way out of the glaringly obvious hypocrisy:

“I have the utmost confidence in our health-care system, I certainly do,” the 60-year-old said, perched on a leather chair in his condominium in Sarasota, Fla. “It’s a bum rap for someone to turn around and say, ‘Oh, Williams does not have confidence in his own health-care system because he has to leave the province.’ “

No, it’s not a “bum rap” to come to that conclusion.  Since the surgery was available in your country, yet you did not avail yourself of the opportunity to seek it locally, one can indeed draw the logical conclusion that you sought superior medical care elsewhere.  Not that we blame you, of course.  I’d want the best care possible, too, and if that meant getting it elsewhere, then so be it.  Just don’t act like it isn’t an indictment on the Canadian health care system, because it is.

At any rate, we thank you for your business!  😆

Obama’s “reverse Midas touch”

Oprompter’s popularity is in the toilet.

So is that of his foot-in-mouth friend Harry Reid.

So is that of his party in Congress, who now stand to lose the House and possibly Senate.

His buds who ran for governor in VA and NJ, as well as the Senate in MA, all lost.

ACORN?  Exposed, and cracking up.

The next victim of being an F.O.B. (Friend of Barack)?  Unions.  Details:

Favorable views of labor unions have plummeted since 2007, amid growing public skepticism about unions’ purpose and power. Currently, 41% say they have a favorable opinion of labor unions while about as many (42%) express an unfavorable opinion. In January 2007, a clear majority (58%) had a favorable view of unions while just 31% had an unfavorable impression.

Bad things happen to people who latch onto President Training Wheels.  Amazingly enough, he still draws friends and followers like a cliff draws lemmings…and with a remarkably similar outcome.
