Those wascally Wepublicans! Made Obama promise sweetness and light, wine and roses, and magic, flying unicorns that poop skittles! Made him declare, "I am absolutely certain that generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick …"

and that "this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal …"

But it wasn't The Moment, and he isn't The One We Have All Been Waiting For. Too late. You fools who believed him(!) and voted for him(!) and elected him (& his Congressional Super-Majority!) are now looking for a place to dump your disappointments. Those wascally Wepublicans, let's blame them.

Oh, yeah, this, too:

No, maybe he can't. President Barack Obama, who insisted he would succeed where other presidents had failed to fix the nation's health care system, now concedes the effort may die in Congress.

The president's newly conflicting signals could frustrate Democratic lawmakers who are hungry for guidance from the White House as they try to salvage the effort to extend coverage to millions of uninsured Americans and hold down spiraling medical costs.

(Only thing is, the plan wouldn't cover very many millions of uninsured, many of whom are illegals, anyway, and almost all budget vetting groups say the Bammy-Losi plan won't hold down costs, neither. And, those "Democratic lawmakers who are hungry for guidance from the White House"? They'll starve to death before Bammy feeds 'em any leadership.)
