You Got Me, Babe
Rep. Marion Berry of Arkansas is bowing to the inevitable.
As indicated in the Hot Air piece, he and some of the other Blue Dogs tried to warn the President not to force them into supporting the O-topia; however, Obama, when reminded of the Democratic disaster of 1994, responded, "Well, the big difference here and in ’94 was you’ve got me."
To which Berry must have responded (at least mentally), "Yeah, that's what I mean."
I didn't care for Bill Clinton, but he had sense enough to shift gears after the Republican gains in '94 and at least give a plausible impersonation of somebody who "got it." Obama seems prepared to believe in his invincible awesomeness to the bitter end. He inflated a big whoopy-cushion of deception with which he was going to trick the American people, and he's done gone and sat on the thing himself.
You know what, Mr. Prez? The big difference between "here and in '94" is that, then, we had a president who got it; now we've got a president who's going to get it.
