I think Obama has reached the point where he knows he is going to be a one-term president. He knows that most of the population of the United States strongly oppose what he (and Pelosi, Reid and others) are trying to do. And I think he is going to do everything he can to get his agenda passed while he is still in office, by any means at his disposal.
Why do I think this? Because he has absolutely ignored his promise to show the health care debates on C-Span in such a way that the public can watch the proceedings. He made that promise eight separate times (that got on video) – maybe more.
It is now abundantly clear that he is a liar, he knows we know it, and he no longer cares what underhanded, behind-closed-doors, bargains and payoffs he has to make to get health care and his other socialist priorities passed.
If he blatantly doesn’t care about keeping his promises, it means that he is not expecting to need, again, the votes of the people to whom he made those promises.
The fact that the current power structure, with the democrats in control of the House, Senate, and the executive, is probably a once-in-a-lifetime situation, that will end with the mid-term elections this year. He only has 2010 in which he can expect to accomplish his agenda.
Like the devil in Revelations 12:12, “He is filled with fury, because he knows that his time is short.”
He’s got to stick that liberal, socialist knife into America’s back while he still has time…
