Democrats: What’s The Plan? Obama: A Rousing Speech!

Apparently, most Democrats were a wee bit scared of asking Obama tough questions during his live televised questions and answers session, but, woops! The media was still present afterwards

Senate Democrats held back from asking President Barack Obama about healthcare reform during a carefully scripted question-and-answer session in front of television cameras.

With the cameras rolling, a group of senators selected in advance by the Democratic leadership asked questions about such topics as partisan gridlock and GOP obstruction.

So, even with elected officials, Obama picks and chooses who gets to ask Hugo Chavez, er, Barack Obama, questions.

But once the president left and reporters were escorted out of the room, senators pressed White House officials about healthcare reform, according to those at the meeting.

Democrats expressed their frustration with the lack of a clear plan for passing healthcare reform, according to one person in the room.

One Democratic senator even grew heated in his remarks, according to the source.

“It wasn’t a discussion about how to get from Point A to Point B; it was a discussion about the lack of a plan to get from Point A to Point B,” said a person who attended the meeting. “Many of the members were frustrated, but one person really expressed his frustration.”

Plan? We don’t need no stinkin’ plan. Just pass something. Of course, what they are complaining about is a lack of leadership from the White House, led by a guy who has never run anything of consequence. Shocking, eh?

Senators did not want to press Obama on healthcare reform in front of television cameras for fear of putting him in an awkward spot.

True dat! How does he explain on camera what the health system bill does, and why it does it? I’d love to see him explain on camera where the authority to force people to purchase health insurance, particularly from a federal government approved list, comes from. CNS News has a nice story and a video of Democrat lawmakers going all Porky Pig when asked.

During his introductory remarks, the president urged lawmakers not to give up on healthcare reform.

“And so as we think about moving forward, I hope we don’t lose sight of why we’re here. We’ve got to finish the job on healthcare,” Obama said.

Showing he still doesn’t understand that the economy is priority #1. He needs to put people in a 3 letter word, J-O-B-S. Nor does he have a roadmap to even succeed with a health system plan. In a similar manner, ask your kids to learn to drive. When they ask “how?”, you say “just get it done.” Like with passing this health care monstrosity, it’ll all end in tears.
