An example of Democrats' frustration with Obama

Skip Carroll, a West Chester Area Democratic committeeman, forwarded this message to me. Its intended recipient is Obama fundraiser David Plouffe, and Carroll wrote it in response to one of that publicist's many pleas for donations. It is an example, I think, of the intense irritation Democrats feel now that the Tea Partiers (with the help of the dutifully bored press) are stealing the national spotlight.

David Pouffle.

You guys just don't get it.

Obama has, with a lot of advisory help, surrounded himself with the sorriest lot I can believe. Rahm Emanuel. Despised by most in Congress, many in the White House, the majority of party faithfuls and half of Illinois.

Larry Summers. He may be the poorest financial manager/adviser living. He screwed up Lithuania, Russia Harvard and the US!

Tim Geitner. A toady to Wall Street in his whole career.

Ben Bernanke, who should be fired for every decision he has made counter to advice from Paul Volcker.

And many, many more.

In addition to this he has made back-door deals on Healthcare Reform with many of the people criminally responsible for the crisis, To Whit: The HMOs and Insurers, Big Pharma, The Doctors (read AMA) and Hospitals and the Ben Nelson types in congress.

And, you have the insensitivity to include a red "DONATE" button on your propaganda messages as though we should feel obliged to donate to an already elected president!

No wonder you lost Massachusetts and are on a course to lose the whole country.

Nice work Brownie.

Skip Carroll

Dan, David Plouffe is a lot more than a fundraiser. He was the key organizing genius behind Obama's election campaign. A supreme irony for many of us who were involved in that campaign is that Plouffe is now pretty much on the outside, without a job in the administration, while Rahm Emanuel is on the inside running things.

I wish the Republicans won the last election and we had a republican president that would have had to clean up the mess that they have made themselves from their own administration's failings. How soon people forget. Now we're building a multibillion dollar aircraft in honor of G.H.W. Bush. They should call it the "Mission Accomplished" or the "Haliburton Express".

Frustration is not exactly the correct word, but it will do for now. The Senate could not muster their 60 votes for the Health Bill,although Obama made promises to some states to help with their decision, but an after thought they could not vote for this too big - too expensive and not thought through bill. Thank You! As for who was in control when George Bush was President -- take a look -- Dems. you say? Correct! Now, the "Blame Game" should be where? Well, maybe we should have noticed that back during the former administration the Dems. were unable to connect the dots. Why now are we seeing so many dropping out of the various races? Could be they now have to admit it is their own Administration's failings.

Dropping out of the Race...Pushing the Health Care Bill through now, before the Election... That is why Mr. Obama is having the meetings to make sure he is able to force the passing of this bill. Watch his response on the discussion with the Dems. & Rep. today, Thursday, on Channel 103. Interesting!

On Board with President Bush when the banner stated "Mission Accomplished" - this was not Bush's idea but it was that ship's idea. Mission accomplished was when Hussain was captured - he was a butcher of citizens. We have many people that are not too well educated or have common sense - so the world will always be at war in one area or another. No matter what Mr. Obama says about health care, he can never again try the backdoor deal again. Transparent did you say?? Yes, step by step and then bring the bill up for a vote.
