It was the title suggested by one of my readers, but none have been so clever.

They call it a game changer

and cite his mourning bipartisanship

so no tears from me as Democrats twist in the wind. NY Post as always has a different angle – they might be right!

This is must see show on PBS


It was made at the time the first attempt of including anti-abortion  provisions in  in the HCR was defeated in the Senate.

The Planned Parenthood stooge was brimming with confidence and enthusiasm at te number of women they bamboozled again (after having sold them out in 2008).

Howard Dean is justifying fielding pro-life candidates in 2006 – his famous 50 states strategy did this to us.

“Those candidates are so much better on all the other issues”

(n other words, who cares about women’s rights – we get our numbers)

No mention is made of Tim  Kaine – the present anti-choice DNC chairman – and who appointed him.

Bart Stupak is announcing surprised women: “We (pro-life Democrats) have always been there. That, and his readiness to vote for a bill that kills Roe vs Wade.

Interestingly, he resents being called “anti-abortion” “I am pro-life”. Make sure you always use that, or better yet – “anti-choice”.

Watch it.  Get angry.

And remember why all women had to jump on Palin and vote for Obama.

The BO spokesperson told Todd that they would use any means necessary to beat Hillary and if women were offended, they would come back to the party during the GE because their plan was to “play the Roe v. Wade card.”

How Planned Parenthood endorsed Obama over Hillary. How Howard Dean stole votes from Hillary and gave them to Obama.

Oh, and vote in the poll as well.


This has proven to be the last straw for B0bot and Dean fan #1 as well

I wish I had not watched NOW tonight on PBS. It increased my disappointment…

with our party leaders. I should have known better than to expect any Democratic leader to say of course women should make their own health care decisions. Howard Dean used to say things like that, but tonight he did not.

Tonight hearing Howard Dean on PBS saying that recruiting those to run who are against abortion is okay as long as they are with us on other issues….was a huge disappointment.

It’s good to know there’s a limit. Of course, most comments attack her for “ideological purity. But that one made my day:

Purity? Go suck on some purity.

Wanna end abortion, deballing would work. How does that sound? Something like forced motherhood?


The conventional wisdom the media constructed along the years was: Republicans are strong on National security (read: like wars) while Democrats are good on the economy. There was definitely some truth in that one as even the reviled Carter reduced deficits, while Clinton transformed a deficit in a surplus.

People were so convinced of the truth of that one, when the financial crisis hit in September 2008, McCain lead evaporated overnight and people decided to let the Democrats tackle this one.

Enter Barack Obama, admirer of Reagan, basher of Clinton. One year after his presidency – with super majority and a gushing media, he managed to wreak this last vestige of respect for the Democrats

A CNN poll produced the following headline

he headline on the new CNN poll is this: “Most Americans applaud Democrats’ loss of supermajority.”And that’s bad for Dems. But what’s worse for Dems is that the poll’s internals also show that for the first time since the Dem takeover of Congress, more say Dem control of Congress is bad for the country.

The poll finds that 48% of American adults say it’s “bad for the country that the Democratic party is in control of Congress,” versus only 45% who say it’s good.

Seems Obama managed to dispel this conventional wisdom.

And now, after the Massachusets voters told him to listen to the people – he’s freezing the spending (the non-military parts)

Some of the reactions to that. Suddenly awaken Krugman:

Obama Liquidates Himself

it’s a betrayal of everything Obama’s supporters thought they were working for. Just like that, Obama has embraced and validated the Republican world-view — and more specifically, he has embraced the policy ideas of the man he defeated in 2008. A correspondent writes, “I feel like an idiot for supporting this guy.”

It’s Official: Obama is an idiot

Obama has now gone off the deep end.  After passing a stimulus that most economists (not just liberal ones) said was too small, and that was made even more inadequate by being heavily tilted toward poor-performing tax-cuts, Obama is now intentionally recreating FDR’s mistake of 1937, when he prematurely cut back spending to try to balance the budget, and sent the country into a new recession.

Barack Herbert Hoover Obama?

For some time I have been worried about fifty little Herbert Hoovers at the state level. Right now it looks like I have to worry about one big one:

Obama’s 3 Year Freeze; Democrats Brain Freeze

Liberals fear that discretionary spending cuts are like fig leaves with sharp edges. They’re designed to cover something ugly and yet they hurt — they hurt those who most rely on government services, who tend to poor and non-white.

In B0botland some are getting it too

Seems PUMAs are everywhere these days  – this is a copy of the resignation letter as published by Boston Globe

Friends and members of the FDTC,

I am writing this letter to tell you that as of this morning I have switched my voter registration from Democratic to Unenrolled and hence am resigning as the FDTC chair.

I am a lifetime Democrat so this has been a very hard step for me to take but I’ve come to the conclusion that the Democratic Party no longer stands for anything I believe in.

Amongst the many reasons for resignation:

1. Our state of Perpetual War is continuing and even expanding. Next thing you know we’ll be in Yemen. Our resources are being spent, horrible atrocities are being committed by US troops, and the wars are pointless and unwinnable. See  Western troops accused of executing 10 Afghan civilians, including children.

3. The continuing erosion of our civil rights to the point where American citizens are no longer guaranteed due process or habeas corpus, which basically means anyone the government deems as troublesome can be “disappeared”. See One day we’ll all be terrorists.

and ends with healthcare reform – and unlike most – mentions women’s rights

. And as a final insult, it includes provisions stripping women of the most basic right of all – ownership of their own bodies. Note to Democrats – pro-choice is in the party’s platform and you don’t compromise on principles.


Interestingly enough lots of B0bots also cheer,

but some food fight ensues

Then throw your vote away, the Democratic party will survive without you, and those of us who remain

will make a difference

Exactly how many people are you willing to sacrifice?

35. NOT acceptable.
I refuse to pay homage to a political party that has deserted me. PERIOD. I WILL NOT wait until “Democratic and GOP base were to agree to split the parties at the same time.” That’s just a recipe for more of the same. I don’t have the resources OR the time to “wait” any longer. I gave them all to the Dem crop of 2008 that PROMISED ME “Change you can believe in” and is now selling me out to the highest bidder. Better pass the word along to your “Committee,” you aren’t getting another chance to do the right thing if you fuck this one up.
Never again.

36. Well, nice knowing you then

39. Very nice!

40. Well pal..
.. at the rate you’re throwing us under the bus, won’t be long till it’s just you here.

BTW, smart guy, I registered as a Democrat in 1971. Thanks for helping that party walk away from me.

To paraphrase a comedian, you know you are a redneck when RNC is trying to emulate you…

RNC was caught with egg on their faces: Republican women had actually access to reproductive rights where the Democrats were happily shutting that door! The shame! They were left behind by bigoted Democrats in the war against women!

According to several Cigna employees, the insurer offers its customers the opportunity to opt out of abortion coverage – and the RNC did not choose to opt out.

And they soon corrected that

Money from our loyal donors should not be used for this purpose,” Chairman Michael Steele said in a statement. “I don’t know why this policy existed in the past, but it will not exist under my administration. Consider this issue settled.”

Playing catch up with the Democrats is hard to do these days, as they are out-republicaning the Republicans

Pheeeew! For a minute there I was worried. There was a brief moment in time – last year when they were all defending Palin and were pointing – rightly – the sexism of the attacks from Obama & his B0bots – they almost looked like human beings. I wasn’t really fooled, but I still enjoyed listening to their words about respecting women.

Now, that the “issue” has been discovered it was swiftly addressed, women lives be damned:

“The policy does not cover abortions unless the life of the mother is in danger,” the NRCC spokeswoman said.

You women should die rather than embarrass the party and that’s that! After all, you’re Republican women, you should be used to that by now!

And from death to prison – Pelosi wasn’t able to answer how comes it’s fair for people to go to prison if they don’t fork their contribution to Obama’s contributors: the insurance companies

Stone: Do you think it’s fair to send people to jail who don’t buy health insurance?

Pelosi: … The legislation is very fair in this respect.

Whether you call it “Obamacare” or bailout to insurance companies, a fairness argument is impossible to make – so slogans are stuttered instead.

Not unlike their hypocrisy in the support for women

While 64 Democrats voted for the amendment, the majority did not – and the Democratic Party’s 2008 platform says the party “unequivocally supports Roe v. Wade and a woman’s right to choose a safe and legal abortion, regardless of ability to pay.” The Democratic National Committee provides abortion coverage to its employees, the committee said.

We’ll see what Stupak will do about that!

And, since this article has a “today in Irony” theme, here’s Katha Politt’s “I could have been a contender” (h/t bostonboomer at the Confluence)

Women Democrats have taken an awful lot of hits for the team lately. Many of us didn’t vote for Hillary Clinton in the primary because the goal of electing a woman seemed less important than the goal of electing the best possible president. Only a self-hater or a featherhead didn’t feel some pain about that

I simply cannot comment on the enormity of that statement.
