Obama Needs To Remind McCain Once More: 'The Election Is Over'

By Manifesto Joe

There's nothing in the Constitution about a three-fifths Senate majority required for approval of anything. It's time to run these obstructionist shitheads over.

The Thursday show, intended to be a public summit on health care, ended up illustrating one thing quite clearly: Congressional Republicans are going to obstruct anything that President Barack Obama tries to do. It's time to roll over these assholes with a Peterbilt truck.

During the exchanges, Obama reminded Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., that "the election is over." McCain snippily came back with something like, "Yes, I'm reminded of that every day."

Obama ignored that and took the high road. I'd say he's taken the high road long enough. I wish to God he'd said something back like, "Well, I'm here to remind you of that again today, senator."

It's time to throw that 60-vote Senate "rule" out, and put these right-wing, special-interest-ass-licking minority shitheads in their proper place. The American people want health care reform, and they clearly voted for it. A simple majority in both houses of Congress, followed by a presidential signature, can bring it. Let's have it. And since we're at it, let's do the public option, too.

I'm not sure what the ramifications would be in November, but it looks as though the Democrats are damned if they do, and damned if they don't, anyway. It's time to rip these sons of bitches three or four new assholes.

Democrats -- real ones, that is -- it's time to go barefisted. These people have used the filibuster with unprecedented frequency, even to block midlevel nominees. It's time to turn them into road kill. Make the filibuster history, and give this country back to the American people.

John McCain is a big grandstanding, full of hot air blowhard. The guy is as phony as a Dan Quayle three dollar bill. So is John Boehner and so is Eric Cantor. So is Mitch McConnell. These people have simply never accepted the facts that:
A. They were rejected overwhelmingly by voters in 2006 and 2008.
B. Barack Obama was elected because the populace is fed up with tax breaks for the rich and big business, but neglect of the needy and average working people, and
C. The whole country (except greedy insurance and pharmaceutical CEOs and stockholders) wants major health care reform, and they want it NOW!

Obama and the majority party should bitch-slap these living-in-denial Republicans into submission or ignore them altogether and steamroll them through reconcialition. The GOP has been wasting our time and money long enough with their childish delaying tactics.

The Dems haven't really had a pair of balls since the LBJ years. I doubt they'll grow a pair now.
I've already accepted that we will not get real health care reform in this country.
I guess the only thing that still really angers me is that GOP politicians themselves get lavish, taxpayer subsidized health care. There's even a full-time medical center at the Capitol, ready to serve the needs of all politicians there and it's all taxpayer funded.
Why aren't these Republican pigs forced to use the same, shitty HMOs that the rest of us must use?
Why, during the rowdy town hall protests in August, did none of the Tea Bagger morons bring up this topic?

FTW, this country is beyond broken. Those moron Republicans stopped lots of Clinton-Era bills and legislation by reconciliation in the 90's and the democrats never called it unfair. So why do these fucktards get to cry foul when the democrats need reconcilliation to get ANYTHING done in the House and Senate when they keep stonewalling?
