During today’s dog and pony health care show, President Obama flashed a few moments of contempt, arrogance and condescension (“I don’t count my time because I’m the president“? Please…), but none more than when John McCain spoke and Obama felt compelled brush his concerns aside by reminding him that “John, the election’s over.”

Or, to use Obama’s more famous line, he was saying “I won.”

McCain should have retorted, “Then why are we here?” But unfortunately, not wanting to ruin any future “reaching across to my friends on the other side of the aisle” opportunities, he didn’t:

    Time to start the "Pink Slip" Party. Our reps refuse to empty their voice mail, answer email with canned talking points and just tell us to stick it up our ass. Time to start spending .44 cents and send them their pink slips via the mail and let them know that they are gone – all of them!!!

    And like the good men said…."power corrupts" …but in Obama's case…the ship of powerfully corrupted arrogance has left the planet.

    I say, we vote in Yoko Ono for our next President. If this is what we can expect from now on…a man pretending to "listen" and then acting as if he is the greatest mind in the room. Then let's have the woman who can give us a good primal scream to relieve the boredom…

    I'm with you Nancy…at this point, I say we send them all into their very expensive bunkers and let them live out their lives in their own little bunker kingdoms,complete with their cute little new lightbulbs.

    The bill died the morning after Brown won. Now it's back. It should be called the "Zombie Bill" and the evil scientist who revived it is not Barry Evil himself, but Andy Stern.
    The bill is all about SEIU and nothing else because if Stern doesn't get this monstrosity passed, all that cash those corrupt bastards swiped from their union members' pension funds will come back to bite them on the ass.
    Stern was probably manning the Oval Office yesterday in a weird kinda Al Haig flashback of "I'm in charge here…while Barack brings home the bacon."

    "Reconciliation" means reconciling SEIU's pension spreadsheet.

    Where Obama is concerned, there is more than meets the eye. This is the most corrupt administration in the history of the United States.

    Ah, its a full on moron fest in here.

    41 seats kills all legistlation – and yet we accuse Obama of over exerting his power.

    No problem when GOP house leader Boner literally cries asking for an up or down vote when Republicans have the majority, but any talk of rconcilliation when Dems have the majority and all you freakin loons cry foul.

    Republicans used reconcilliation to pass both Bush tax cuts for the wealthy. So I guess its not really about reconcilliation or spending, its about who the target of the spending is.

    Minoriites might actually benefit! Better start up another Tea Party.
