Bob Woodward Says Republicans Are Using Extortion and Blackmail to Defund Obamacare
In a rare lucid moment, Bob Woodward has accused the Republican Party of trying to blackmail and extort Obama into defunding Obamacare
When even noted Sean Hannity fan boy Bob Woodward can see that Republicans are using blackmail and extortion in their attempt to defund Obamacare, things are really going badly for the GOP.
The same Bob Woodward who was a fixture on Fox News when he had an anti-Obama book to sell has changed his tune a bit now that he is not trying to convince the brainwashed, Republican voting, white haired masses to plop down a bit of their Social Security checks on his latest book.
It is sad to see how far one half of the team that will always be remembered for setting the modern high mark in journalism has fallen. Woodward will likely continue to pander to the right, because the only thing that the man seems to care about is selling his books. But when even Bob Woodward calls the efforts to defund Obamacare extortion and blackmail, the Republican Party is seriously screwed.
No worries. Remember TARP? First the House voted against it, then they all got an earful from their constituents after the stock market lost 1000 points in a day, and then they voted for it after they got an earful from their panicked, scared shoeless constituents. The same will happen this time if the House votes against extending the debt ceiling. Forget the Affordable Care Act. That's a side show. If those tea baguettes in Congress ever dare vote against extending the debt ceiling, they will quickly change their minds the very next day. Guaranteed. 100%. Their hatred of healthcare reform will be forgotten faster than you can say "Healthcare Reform".
