"I'm scared out of my mind talking to you here," Joe from Philly blurted out as he was connected to President Barack Obama during a talk radio call-in show devoted to health care Thursday. But when it came to his comment, however, Joe did not hold back.
"I'm getting a little ticked off that it feels like the knees are buckling a little bit," the caller declared, suggesting the president had begun to wobble in the face of pressure from conservative critics.
"You have an overwhelming majority in both the House and the Senate, and you own the whole shooting match. ... It's very frustrating to watch you try and compromise with a lot of these people who aren't willing to compromise with you."
I love how giving common sense advise to the President is headline news. But that's how fucked up the Beltway is. They live in this bubble that no one else in America lives in. These people think they know America, but the fact is they know nothing about America. That's why you get fuck ups like Obama's Health Care "plan".
Kudos to Joe from Philly. I couldn't have said it better myself. Maybe Obama will take his advise to heart and tell the GOP to fuck off. Health care isn't going to get done with their help and the Democrats don't need their help. Why Obama wanted their help even after the GOP has told Obama to fuck off since the moment he took office is beyond me.
