Democrats Have a Tiger by the Tail!

Today Obama will sit down with Republican party leaders at the White House in a vain effort to find compromise on the DOA Obamacare bill. This is a bipartisan effort in name only as the Obama has already decided to use the nuclear option, known as reconciliation. At a time when the president should be hosting a jobs summit and not a health care summit the president is desperately hanging on to health care despite the unemployment rate hoovering around 10%.

The Democrats just don't get it. The people simply aren't buying what they are selling, but the president is stubbornly pushing ahead with something the American people have already rejected as reflected in the defeats in New Jersey, Virginia and most importantly Massachusetts. Despite all of these defeats and the ailing economy the president is pushing ahead. It seems he is unable to push back against the most liberal members of his party or perhaps he simply does want too.

The failure of the health care bill is not a Republican victory, but a Democratic defeat, for the Democrats have failed themselves. They have unskillfully gotten themselves in a pickle and are desperately trying to find a way out. They will be damned by their base if the bill is not passed and damned by America if it does. They have a "Tiger by the Tail"!
