In spite of their own crippling stupidity, GOP might be able to take back House in 2010

Lefties are sweating, as well they should be, I think we'll successfully bog down any major health care initiative, the Democrats and Obama wasted their political capital with Porkulus, which, while very damaging, isn't as damaging as Marxist Medicine.  And yes, I think they could have had some disastrous state run health care plan it if they wanted it in the first four months of Obama's term, given the embarrassing slapfights on the GOP side over which one of them got to slob his knob first.

The good news for us now is that they've now got moderates and independents back to recognizing that liberals will fritter away trillions of dollars on useless shit every time you give them the chance, and liberals are going to be superfuckingpissed because they by all means should have their socialist medicine.  Thankfully, the Democrat leadership fucked up and lost one of the rare opportunities they could have made socialist medicine happen.

Is It Wrong To Say I Want To Bear Charles Krauthammer's Love Child?

I mean, even though I sometimes disagree with him, when he hammers Team Obama in this fashion, I cannot help myself.

Obama doesn't lie. He merely elides, gliding from one dubious assertion to another. This has been the story throughout his whole health-care crusade. Its original premise was that our current financial crisis was rooted in neglect of three things -- energy, education and health care. That transparent attempt to exploit Emanuel's Law -- a crisis is a terrible thing to waste -- failed for health care because no one is stupid enough to believe that the 2008 financial collapse was caused by a lack of universal health care.

So on to the next gambit: selling health-care reform as a cure for the deficit. When that was exploded by the Congressional Budget Office's demonstration of staggering Obamacare deficits, Obama tried a new tack: selling his plan as revenue-neutral insurance reform -- until the revenue neutrality is exposed as phony future cuts and chimerical waste and fraud.

Obama doesn't lie. He implies, he misdirects, he misleads -- so fluidly and incessantly that he risks transmuting eloquence into mere slickness.

Slickness wasn't fatal to "Slick Willie" Clinton because he possessed a winning, nearly irresistible charm. Obama's persona is more cool, distant, imperial. The charming scoundrel can get away with endless deception; the righteous redeemer cannot.

Take me, Charles! I am yours!

Pawlenty standing his ground on Obamacare

This morning on MSNBC's Morning Joe, potential Presidential candidate Gov. Tim Pawlenty stood his ground against Stockholm Joe Scarborough's attacks on the attacks on Obamacare:



Pawlenty has done what few Republicans have been able to do -- calmly address the concerns behind the "death panel" claims without buying into the language, but without entirely dismissing it either. He took a very loaded question and got his message across without appearing abrasive. In a world of Obama Derangement Syndrome, that's a huge plus.

I'm liking Pawlenty more and more. I'm still unclear as to what Pawlenty's overarching philosophy might be -- the "Sam's Club Republicans" concept needs fleshed out a bit -- but he's performing well so far. I certainly prefer him to Huckabee, and probably to Romney. Whereas Pawlenty may (may) turn out to be squishy in a few areas, Romney has been all over the map. I'll take consistency over rhetoric any day.

On the subject of Obama's address to Congress, when even the Associated Press is doing fact checks and calling the math "iffy", there's a problem. Matt Welch at Reason.com wrote a response that is so good and complete I wish I'd written it myself. (Reason is libertarian, not conservative.)
