It Aint Over Yet

"In these matters the only certainty is that nothing is certain." ~ Pliny the Elder

Just when Harry Reid has us convinced he is a total moron, he does or says something that indicates he is diabolically clever.

Shortly after receiving the news of Republican Scott Brown's election to the U.S. Senate in Massachusetts, Reid magnanimously announced Senator-elect Brown will be seated, "as soon as the proper paperwork has been received."


Aye, there's the rub.

There has been some speculation that the Senate will attempt to push the Obamacare bill through with some obscure ruling that somehow bypasses getting the approval of the House of Representatives. I'm not exactly sure what the procedure is, but that's what I've been told. That could be done quickly, before the "proper papers" can be received.

And Harry Reid knows it.

Another way (and the most obvious) Reid and Pelosi and the rest of the gang of Obama thugs can pass Obama care without allowing Brown to vote would be to delay the processing of the "proper papers" until after the vote.

We all know how long it takes the government to produce needed paperwork depending on it's importance.

There is most likely a myriad of ways Harry and the gang can sneak Obamacare into law without relying on Scott Brown's vote.

Don't count Obamacare out yet.

Don't assume the worst is over.

Don't think the Democrats have lost yet. There are likely many more aces up their sleeves.

Harry (and Obamacare) won't go down that easily.

This fight will not be won until we can vote that gang of crooks out of office.

Good advice.

Do a little gloating, but stay on guard.

November 2010 is crucial, and we mustn't relax and think that the win for the GOP is already in. Also, beware of RINOS.

Scott Brown's victory should not be perceived as a message to the Democrats to slow down, quite the contrary: I have heard three Democrats' opinion on the matter, and they say:

1. Bob Beckel: Democrats heard the people speak, there will be a slow down of the agenda.

2. Juan Williams: no way, it's full speed ahead with the Dem agenda, over the cliff.

3. Fast Eddie Rendel: make the Republicans filibuster, actually take to the floor and gibber gabber endlessly on their ideas for health care. Double down on the skullduggery.

Two out of three say that no message was heard, more or less. Who do we believe? I say believe the two guys who say it's full speed ahead, right over the cliff.

Yes, Fredd, the Democrats have already demonstrated they are willing to lose their jobs for Obamacare. They haven't been listening to their constituency. There is no reason to assume they will now.

No, as I said, It aint over yet. And it won't be until we throw these bums out.

I don't know if it would be wise to piss off the people of Massachusettes. That doesn't mean they won't do it anyway.

If they try to pull something to get this bill through November will give the House and Senate to the Republicans who will overturn that bill. Obama will be a lame duck President for the last two years of his first, and only term.

I think they are really underestimating the American people if they think they're going to use subversive measures to keep Brown out ... and get away with it.

We may even make them fight for California...

Krystal, no, it wouldn't be wise, but when did acting unwisely ever stop the Dimocrats?

Don't think that just because they will (and undoubtedly, they will)lose a number of seats in both the House and the Senate that they won't try to push Obamacare and Cap and Tax anyway.

They have been biting the hand that feeds them for decades. Why would anyone think they will stop now?
