The great uniter President Obama tries to unite Democrats by bashing Republicans for “doing what they’re told”. The Hill has this interesting story which only demonstrates the desperation that Obama and the Democrat leadership must be feeling.

In sharp contrast to how he got elected, President Barack Obama is bashing Republicans this week while urging Democrats to unite behind his effort to reform the nation’s healthcare system.

Months after some Democrats on and off Capitol Hill were suggesting that healthcare reform could attract 70 to 80 votes in the Senate, Obama and congressional leaders are focused on uniting their party and picking up, at most, a couple GOP defectors to help clear the 60-vote hurdle in the upper chamber.

The most insulting part during the fundraiser is when Obama says the following:

“Democrats are an opinionated bunch. You know, the other side, they just kinda sometimes do what they’re told. Democrats, y’all thinkin’ for yourselves.”

Fiction can be funny. President Obama, why don’t you spend less time playing Night at the Improv and more time trying to fix the economy and generating a job or two. I think Saturday Night Live’s “Jack and Squat” are too generous to add to your list of accomplishments. I will say this, for what it’s worth, you might want to just do what you’re told when the voters speak. The latest Rassumussen Poll shows that close to 60% of the public no longer want’s your Hellcare plan. Here is the question that Ras asks (notice how specific it is compared to the questions WaPo asks that are the equivalent to “do you support wife-beating”):

Suppose that the creation of a government-sponsored non-profit health insurance option encouraged companies to drop private health insurance coverage for their workers. Workers would then be covered by the government option. Would you favor or oppose the creation of a government-sponsored non-profit health insurance option if it encouraged companies to drop private health insurance coverage for their workers?

60% oppose this plan straight up. The language is very clear and simple, do you want to switch from your private insurance to a public based one? Most people simply do not.

So, how ’bout doing what your told, quit making enemies list, quit boycotting major news agencies, quit trying to be Jay Leno at fundraisers and try to fix our problems with some actual policy that stands a chance of actually working. Kind of like your Stimulus plan . . . uhhh, wait, never mind, it’s all gone.
