This is to say that congressional Democrats have at least twice reached the "boiling point" of anger over the lack of prosperity brought about by Obamanomics, in November of 2009, and now again in July of this year. Yet despite their anger, which apparently has been raging-on for at least eight months, the congressional majority has nonetheless chosen to follow their dear leader over a cliff.
In this calendar year, alone, the Obama Democrats have gone to the point of imperiling the nation, and their own re-elections, all for the sake of obeying Obama. The Obamacare bill; repeated renewals of unemployment benefits; a now, Obama's "financial system overhaul" bill that hands-over more control of the banking industry to Obama's Federal Reserve, and as of last Friday, sank the DOW some 200 points or so.
And consider just how pathetic the so-called "healthcare reform" bill really is. Buried in its details are a federal government take-over of the student loan industry (as though "student loans" has anything to do with healthcare); it raises taxes on, of all things, wheel chair purchases (Obama's idea of "compassion" for disabled?); it is so fabulous that Obama provided “exemptions” from the bill’s mandates to the White House and congressional staff who helped write it, and to organized members of the United Auto Workers Union; and individual states are spending their precious-few tax revenues filing law suits to safeguard their residents from the implementation of the bill.
And now, apparently, congressional Democrats are dismayed that Obama doesn't have a "plan," or "sufficient support," to get them re-elected.
Sorry Democrats, but you should have known better. History shows us that this is the way selfish, thuggish, big-government works. Obama had his way with you, and now he's moved on. I hope you go back and learn some things about history and economics. But for now, you have shown yourselves unworthy to lead.
