Like it Is

Leave it to the nation's newest senator to Tell It Like it Is to the Prez.

Newly arrived Republican Sen. Scott Brown of Massachusetts accused President Barack Obama and Democrats on Saturday of a "bitter, destructive and endless" drive to pass health overhaul legislation that Brown warned would be disastrous.
Personally, I don't think the White House really expects to pass this bill. They want to, and they'll kick butt to get it through, but I think their feeling is if that they're going to get crushed this November either way, so they might as well preserve their liberal base by fighting to the finish.
"An entire year has gone to waste," Brown said in the weekly GOP radio and Internet address. "Millions of Americans have lost their jobs, and many more jobs are in danger. Even now, the president still hasn't gotten the message. "Somehow, the greater the public opposition to the health care bill, the more determined they seem to force it on us anyway."
The truth of Scott's statement, and the stark shame of it when you consider the excitement this president carried into office, is historic. And transformative. Never again will voters trust a political neophyte with the most difficult job in the world. Never again will they vote for Democrats without the full knowledge that they're voting for radicals.
By the way, South Carolina Republican Lindsay Graham was even tougher on Obama than was Scott today.
"The American people are getting tired of this crap," Graham said of Axelrod's comments. "No way in the world is what they did in Massachusetts like what we're about to do in Washington."

Yes indeed.
