Wouldn't this encourage a NO vote?

President Obama has threatened not make fund raising visits for democrats who vote no for the healthcare bill. It would seem to me, with his track record for helping campaigns that would encourage a no vote. Several dems are reportedly distancing themselves from him with their campaigns already.

  • wow shows how much you understand politics. Just because you all keep saying how bad obama is in public will not make it true. It took bush 8 years to destroy us it will take Obama a little longer than one year to fix what the republicans did.

  • Bush didn't "destroy" us. BPO's cure is worse than the illness. He is fixing a loose nail with a sledge hammer. He doesn't have a clue how to run a business much less a country.

  • The strategy of forcing political change through orchestrated crisis. The "Cloward-Piven Strategy" seeks to hasten the fall of capitalism by overloading the government bureaucracy with a flood of impossible demands, thus pushing society into crisis and economic collapse. http://www.americanthinker.com/2008/09/barack_obama_and_the_strategy.html
