Campaigning so hard for a bill to pass? doesn't that say something?

Seriously, step back and looking at the big picture. Why the need for so much CAMPAIGNING to get people to agree with a bill? Doesn't that mean something to you? Obama's approval rating is dropping and people DO NOT LIKE this healthcare plan, so why all the travels, campaigns, and sales pitches for people to buy into it? Obama is just wasting MORE money in his travels to local communities to talk about his healthcare plan.

What is the rush and push so hard to do something the the general public is uneasy about???

  • It says alot to me he is having to keep stumping it because it isn't what Americans want meanwhile yes he is spending money stumping and pissing more people off.The Town Halls he holds watching them on the tv very much resembles infomercials..all fake and staged.

  • Its a sign of desperation. When the hell do we ever get SPAM from the whitehouse? Can't get any more desperate than that.

  • What would be great is if someone could somehow get into one of his fake ass Town Halls and ask these two questions,there are many more that could be asked too.

    First, Why does he need all these czars to run things for him when all the other presidents we had didn't? (and I mean nowhere near THIS many!)

    Second, Why has he not abolished lobbyist's as he had promised to do? (shouldn't be that hard, right?)

  • On another site I frequent, a poster made an interesting comment, that I hadn't thought of....

    It's obvious that Obama and company are desperate and grasping when they insist that "right wing extremists," "elderly mobs" and "astroturfers" are seeking to stifle debate with all of their protesting, because if you remember correctly, Pelosi and Obama wanted to get this bill to the House floor BEFORE the August recess....THEY NEVER WANTED TO DEBATE....THEY WANTED TO JUST PASS THE BILL!!!!

    So again, WHY all the Town Halls?  Dems have control of the House and Senate....why campaign so hard to convince the public?!  Could it be he's more worried about his re-election a mere 6 1/2 months into his 4 year term?  LOL  Hey's NOT working!!!  :o)
