Liberal Caller Expresses Left's Deep Frustration With Obama
Why Did Dems Push Plan Few Voters Support?
When the epitaph is likely written for the Democratic Party in November 2010, perhaps we'll then know why Team Obama pushed so hard for a massive health care bill that even its own base opposed.
With little support remaining beyond tenuous backing from the middle (and moderate senators who required bribes to get on board), what has been accomplished? While conservatives have battled this boondoggle since the beginning, increasing anger from the left has begun to boil over, with some turning to liberal talk programs to express their frustration.
From a union member who says he adamantly supported Obama last year, here's one caller who seems to typify the dissention in the ranks:
CALLER - ED SCHULTZ SHOW - 16 DEC 09 (13:09): I called you when Obama announced for president and I told him, told you I'd volunteer to be a bodyguard and take a bullet for him.
And now I can't even stand to see his mug.
The question: from here, what will Democrats do to bring their base back into line? That's where the situation truly becomes dangerous.
