They have a super majority in Congress and a filibuster proof Senate but they couldn’t deliver Health Care Reform for their Democrat President why?
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) blamed now-White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel's work as head of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), during which he worked to recruit many centrist candidates, resulting in landslide Democratic victories, for difficulties facing House leaders trying to pass reform legislation.—Michael O'BrienWell they can’t blame Bush or Republicans. And if this Congress and President wanted to do something as outlandish as void out the Constitution of the United States of America they could do it and Republicans couldn’t do a dang thing about it because Republicans don’t have the numbers in Congress to stop them.

The fact is these Blue Dog Democrats are not Liberal enough for Maxine Waters or the rest of the Democrat leadership.
This Obama failure was handed to him not by opposing Republicans but by opposition in his own Party, opposition which believes that Obama and the Liberal left wing of the Democrat Party are careening out of control with spending and taking the country in the wrong direction.
I’ll take a Blue Dog over Confused Yellow Dog Sen. Lindsey Graham any day!
