What happened to the Party of NO?

Dissident Daughter Nancy Pelosi identifies with Tea Party Patriots while defending Charlie Rangel's ethics. For certain, there should be nothing wrong with politicians vacationing in the Caribbean - what's the harm in a little corporate sponsorship? In an interview on ABC last Sunday, she claimed she has much in common with the Tea Party - this after belittling the movement time and again. Then she follows the comment up with remarks that the Tea Party movement is orchestrated or hi-jacked by Republicans.
----------------
We share some of the views of the Tea Partiers in terms of the role of special interest in Washington, D.C., as -- it just has to stop. And that's why I've fought the special interest, whether it's on energy, whether it's on health insurance, whether it's on pharmaceuticals and the rest.

Van Jones, self avowed Communist and Revolutionary sends Glenn Beck love from the podium of the NAACP awards.
----------------
The last thing I want to say is this. To my fellow countryman, Mr. Glenn Beck, I see you and I love you, brother. I love you and you cannot do anything about it. I love you and you cannot do anything about it. Let's be one country! Let's be one country. Let's get the job done.

Mar 2 Obama embraces GOP health care proposals
----------------
The meeting was a good opportunity to move past the usual rhetoric and sound bites that have come to characterize this debate and identify areas on which we agree and disagree," he wrote. "I left convinced that the Republican and Democratic approaches to health care have more in common than most people think."
----------------

Well, it's easy to make nice, especially for political gain or if it serves your agenda. But, do you believe it? Do you really believe Rangel didn't know he was doing wrong?

I think Republicans made a big mistake attending the Health Care Summit. I thought the plan was to offer an ALTERNATIVE to the massive health care bill Obama and Company are trying to ram through with complete and utter disregard for the will of the American people. Instead, Republicans have contributed to the problem and hung themselves in the process. Obama didn't consider the GOP alternatives as viable... or stand alone or anything of the sort. He's merely incorporated GOP suggestions into the chaos of his plan, smiling all the time with that smarmy way he has about him while he turned the screws a little tighter.

Was that the plan Republicans? What happened to throw Obama-Care out and let's start over with simpler, more common-sense plans? It's a disaster. Now we have a little red ink swimming in a sea of blue ink. Now, do you have to sign or risk being called a hypocrite? Do you stand your ground and embrace being the party of NO or will you capitulate and sign on?

FYI: I liked the party of NO.

It was a smooth move on Obama's part. Very crafty. Just call him Shape Shifter in Chief because as he offered the proverbial olive branch he was working his ju-ju-hoo-doo on the GOP and I don't think anything is gonna break this spell.

Do you really think Pelosi identifies with Tea Party patriots? Do you really believe Van Jones has suddenly found the love for Beck? Do you really believe the President gives a hoot what's in the Obama-Care plan as long as it passes - one way or another?

NO and NO and NO and just for emphasis NO.

Since politicians don't have a clue where they stand or if they do know they don't have the gumption to stand that ground, let me be perfectly clear about where I stand and where millions of other Americans are standing.

I/We do not want Obama-Care. We do not want the Democrat version. We do not want the Republican version. We do not want the scaled down Obama-Care-Lite version. We certainly don't want some tragically morphed Demo-Bama-Can version. I hate to break it to you guys but where I stand on this is firm - you vote, sign on, even smile upon Obama-Care in any form - I will take it as a personal challenge to see you voted out of office... every spineless one of you.
