I just want something simple, like the TRUTH!

The Chris Matthews Show, March 7, 2010

MATTHEWS : Party time. After 13 months of whispering and wooing across the aisle, the president must now win with those on his side. He must rally the Democrats to pass health care because they’re all he’s got. He must now lead the band with all the music and magic he has in him.

Selling victory. To win his biggest test, one he set himself, the president must convince his people the prize is worth the pain. He must teach the deepest of all truths, that it’s what you do with what you’ve got.

These statements are amazing to me.

Ok Chris, do you have your Pom Poms out? You seem to be marching in lockstep behind the Obama Health Care Parade.

Matthews has a new liberal definition of  ‘Victory’ or in his words, “Selling victory.”

VICTORY now defined: Passing a plan that the American people don’t want.

  • Split on Obama’s handling of health care: 48-48 (46-50 August 17)
  • Support Obama’s health care reforms: 46-48 (45-50 August 17)
  • President Obama’s job approval is at 54 (57 August 17)
  • Deficit: 65% think health care reform will make it worse
  • Medicare: 56% of seniors think it will weaken Medicare
  • On the crucial “what’s in it for me?” question, twice as many Americans (32-16) think it will make their own care worse, twice as many (40-20) think it will increase their costs, and more than three times as many (37-11) think it will hurt their coverage.

December 16, 2009 Washington Post-ABC News Poll

  • Obama and the Democrats have had decidedly less success convincing the public that their health proposals will bring positive change.
  • More than half of those polled, 53 percent, see higher costs for themselves if the proposed changes go into effect than if the current system remains intact.
  • About as many (55 percent) say the overall cost of the national health-care system would go up more sharply.
  • Moreover, just 37 percent say the quality of their care would be better under a new system; 50 percent see it as better under the current set-up.

“Its new survey finds Obama’s approval rating falling to 59 percent from 64 percent in February. It also finds the ranks of Americans who disapprove of the president’s job performance rising, to 26 percent from 17 percent.”

Back to Chris Matthews Sunday Program.

Ms. KATHLEEN PARKER : I think he’s done his best to say, `Look, I’ve tried.’ But everybody’s forgetting something, which is that the American people don’t want this plan.

MATTHEWS : “He must teach the deepest of all truths, that it’s what you do with what you’ve got.”

Really? What has the President been doing?? He has given over 100 speeches on Obama-care, and over 100 combined television and newspaper/magazine interviews.

Professor Obama has been preaching the same sermon for over a year and the polls show it continues to be rejected by 2/3 of the American people.

Rasmussen Reports:

Three-out-of-four Americans (74%) trust their own judgment more than that of the average member of Congress when it comes to economic issues facing the nation.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 13% trust the average Congress members judgment more, while 12% are not sure who knows best.

I don’t think “the deepest of all truths” have seen the light of day, as reflect by Rasmussen.

A few “simple truths” have been exposed:

  • The Cornhusker Kickback
  • The Louisiana Purchase
  • No TORT Reform
  • No selling insurance across state lines
  • No Stupak amendment
  • No Health Savings Accounts
  • No Media Care Reform…
    Just cuts of 500 billion, … which will never happen, to a program that is going BANKRUPT.

Ms. O’DONNELL: Well, one of the problems is, there’s an intramural aspect to this that may not be as obvious. The House has mistrust of the Senate. The Senate has to promise to make fixes.

“The House has mistrust of the Senate,” and the American people don’t trust Congress… But we are going to believe the Senate is going to keep promises.

Are you kidding me?  What’s not “obvious” about that?

Ms. O’DONNELL: And people just don’t believe they will follow through and help cover those House Democrats who would vote for this, and that’s a real problem.

MATTHEWS: OK. I think they’re going to try to solve that by some kind of public statement, by 50 at least Senate Democrats. `We are going to pass reconciliation and meet your objections to the Senate bill if you vote for the Senate bill.’ They’re going to have to, clearly.

Excuse me, I though the Obama line on that was the “Republican obstructionists” were blocking the presidents every move, not his fellow progressive Democrats.

A simple math lesson here. The Democrats had a super Majority in the Senate and an overwhelming numbers in the House. They could have passed anything.


Even with the election of Scott Brown in Massachusetts, all they needed was ONE Republican. One Republican. And Lord knows we have some Liberal Republicans that pollute the Senate on a regular basis. Could they find one Republican, that they could convince, or like Democrats, bribe? ONE Republican?


Now they speak of ‘reconciliation‘. Really? Just 51 votes? Seems like the Democrats are struggling like a beached whale to round up enough votes in the House to pass the Senate version of this monstrosity. If you can only get 51 Senate Democrats to vote for this, and there are 59 who caucus with the Democrats, doesn’t that mean you have BIPARTISAN OPPOSITION to this bill? All the Republicans and maybe 8 Democrats?


Poles, Tea Parties, Town Halls… The American people have spoken, but no one in Washington is listening.

Washington will hear all of us soon!
