Now that our government is back to work, an oxymoron of the highest platitude, our nation anxiously awaits direction on the health care debate. Over the last month the voice of the people was surely heard, daily townhall meetings clearly expressed the opinion that most of the nation is not interested in President Obama’s often edited proposed health care plan, and most divisive, the public option. Also clear is the fact that there is no health care plan just a series of thoughts not so succinctly put forth to test the boundaries of just how far the Obama team can extend its tentacles into the hearts, minds and purses of its constituency. Now that the mud slinging, threats, and adjective abuse has come to an impasse we now look to Obama for leadership, will we see the brilliant orator/actor that mesmerized the disenchanted, or the foreboding truth that Obama is nothing more than a hollow messenger of the liberal left?

Evidence of the latter is abundantly apparent, where in the past the presidents skill at delivering a rousing speech to rally a cause proved dramatically successful, his efforts are now worn thin. The charm offensive: “A publicity campaign, usually by politicians, that attempts to attract supporters by emphasizing their charisma or trustworthiness” is not sufficient enough to carry the platform, the people are demanding “facta non verba”, Mr. President, action not words.

The irony of truth is we as a nation do need health care reform, that is the binding thread we all can agree on, where this process has been derailed is the two divisive paths to that goal. Neither plan or I should say any plan issued to date has not addressed the one simple baseline need, what is best for the people! The current administration believes a public option, or in other words further intrusion of the government into the lives and pockets of the masses is the the only way to achieve a workable plan, where as the opposing dictum for all intent and purpose shields the large corporate health care providers and diminishes competition. So in retrospect, no substantive options have come to the table by either party.

Obama has lost the “crisis effect” and a great deal of political capital due to his handlers inability to send a clear message. The modus operandi of this administration that was so successful in passing the non stimulus stimulus was the call for urgency, we must do this now or else! That strategy is shallow in that the democratic health care plan was not to take effect until 2013? The first rhetorical question, “what is the rush”, second being, if this is so urgent why wait until after 2013 to deliver on the promise? It become apparent when you answer those two questions that what we are witnessing from the Obama administration is more focused on ideology and party survival than need.

Many promises were made by the Obama handlers, the first payback was the stimulus plan, of which by best estimates will not be fully funded until 2011, and has not made one iota of difference in our economic conundrum, the second plank of the Obama platform was to offer government run health care. The nation was drunk with change when the stimulus was rammed though both the house and senate in 48 hours out of perceived need, and a full blown cram down was attempted to pass health care prior to the government recess, thankfully enough resistance quelled that attempt.

So here we are, no further along, more confused, political pandering rampant, poll numbers tanking, accountability demanded, accusations abound, facts becoming clearer as to general direction, and the answer from the Obama administration, “let him charm them”. Tonight’s speech is being labeled as a last ditch attempt to salvage any creditability of our Presidents leadership qualities, gone is the blind acceptance of change for change’s sake. Time for the rubber to meet the road, a political reboot so to speak. I do hope the President does not continue to insult the intelligence of the American public with shallow promises, radical ideals so far left they are laughable, and begin to lead the nation to some modicum of truth that he does have the peoples interests at heart. So far all that has gone before appears to be payback Chicago style to those who helped him gain the office of President. We are waiting Mr. President, and not so patiently for you to show us all you are more than an empty suit enamored with your own image.

    Clear thinking, Karm, and reaching back to tie up lose ends. I have heard the speech to the students – a lot of me, me me in it but not as dire as many worried. I woiuld rather miss the state of the union plus speech – rehash with drama and aplomb. Good post, Karm

    Thanks my Canine friend, great job on the Friends blog!! I am off to get some work done, my assignment for the week was canceled, so I will blog my way to the poor house LOL!!

    If you can’t kill them kindness baffle them with bullshit.

    Barack Obama

  5. karmahd says:

    Or Tellitlikeitis, if you cannot baffle them with BS, give them more BS!!!

  6. tellitlikeitis says:

    Karma, They have truckloads of it coming out of the whitehouse everyday. It’s an endless supply.

  7. karmahd says:

    Agreed Tellit, but I think is is finally being see for what it is, advertising to sell a brand and an ideology. There is no meat on the bone.

  8. tellitlikeitis says:

    Obama is just and empty suit selling snake oil and empty promises. You can tell it’s getting desperate out there because his blind supporters don’t try to defend him anymore. They just attack any opposition by trying to change the subject and change the debate.

  9. karmahd says:

    analogy: Obama promised a Cadillac we got an Edsel!

  10. tellitlikeitis says:

    An Edsil? I thought it was a Corvair

  11. samhenry says:

    My brother went to school with Edsel Ford; He also owned a corvair – he was blown off the road in it when the wind picked up the front end. My brother never consults me about his friends or his cars, ergo, he operates at below par.

    I just heard on CNN that our banks are rated 186th or something worldwide. Great. I sold the little stock I had in Wells Fargo today!

    Like I said yesterday Samhenry, where is Little Timmy Geithner?? Busy with his membership in the Council for Foreign Relations!!

  14. lisaintx says:

    Outstanding and well written!! I agree—but you are MUCH nicer than I am…heeeee
    I passed the “nice” stage about 2 weeks into the elections after being viciously mauled by the rabid left, and have since taken a very ideological RIGHT-WING” stance these days for sure.
    Obama LIED about being a moderate and that is what got him elected. Now the truth is seeping out from the moat of lies and the dirty political scam he has unjustly won and shown to the people that trusted him.

  15. karmahd says:

    Yes Lisa and it has caught up with him, I am amazed after watching the news today, the talk is still they are going to try to have a public option!! My god, I guess the voice of the people mean nothing when you have an agenda of payback!!

  16. lisaintx says:

    I agree and he has gnawed off his own foot in a trap of his own making!!
    The man continues to LIE and speak with a forked tongue!!

    He gives new definitions to everyday terms and uses them with great ease to further his RADICAL agenda.

    He is hell-bent-for-leather to make America into a Karl Marx “Field of Dreams”…but thank the good Lord, so many Americans have realized what was going on and have made a stand to fight for our rights and freedom.

    I saw that photo of the weeping Obama in a chain-email from a democrat friend. She was asking for folks to pray for Obama cause the weight of the world was on his shoulders.

    He’s not crying enough. I want to see more tears.
