Dems chafe as W.H. wavers on health

President Barack Obama has left Democrats as confused as ever over how the White House plans to deliver a health care reform bill this year, following two weeks of inconsistent statements, negligible hands-on involvement and a sudden shift to a jobs-first message.

Democrats on Capitol Hill and beyond say they have no clear understanding of the White House strategy – or even whether there is one – and are growing impatient with Obama’s reluctance to guide them toward a legislative solution.

How do you think this will turn out? Opinions?

  • The thing I have come to be aware of is that PreBO isn't a democrat. Oh, he is registered that way, but he isn't one. He is a progressive. He has no loyalty to the democratic party. He is becoming comfortable enough to be opening hostel during the meeting with the republicans in Baltimore and then the democrats too. He is confrontational during the SOTU. He gets irritated when he says he has "offered a hand and was met with a fist" in reference to the repubs and then people respond that the hasn't done any such thing. He is the one who has done the rejecting, but because he says it was the other way, we are suppose to just accept that. After all, he is the pres. Well, he is in a temp job. He isn't the king; he is just a CEO. We don't swear allegiance to him. We swear to our flag, our Constitution and our country. He is burning bridges at every turn except those marked "progressive".

  • So much for Obama's leadership skills.

  • Obama has no clue what he wants to do. I only hope this wavering continues through out the year and when the repubs take over again, we can stop worrying about it.

  • Why don't they do what they were elected to do and stop waiting for someone to tell them what to do

  • This is only the beginning. I predict the wavering will increase over the next 12 months.
