The Democrat's "Manchurian candidate" saboteur, traitor, & economy-killing economic hit-man in action: Rahm Emanuel arrived at Eric Massa's 2006 campaign, SPECIFICALLY to SABOTAGE Massa's WINNING, POPULAR,
"Republicans are corrupt" campaign speech by trying to get Massa to run a REPUBLICAN-lite, pro-war campaign...New: FDL points to a 2007 Truthout.org addition to the ongoing story of Rahm Emanuel's PURGE of genuinely DEMOCRATIC candidates from "Democrat" Party primaries: Emanuel's TREACHEROUS radical RIGHT-WING, pro-wars, tax-cuts-for-wealthy, DEREGULATION, and BAILOUTS for FRAUDULENT bankers Neo-Con HIJACKING of the Democratic Party has been on-going since well before 2006, as our own earlier post and our DWT link outlined - sheer treachery and theft, made possible ONLY by RELENTLESS DECEIT, playing on the IGNORANCE and GULLIBILITY of Democratic voters.
Well, you have to give him credit: IF SHEER DECEIT, BACK-STABBING TREACHERY, and relentless LIES and SELLOUTS are to be 'admired' in the world of political power, deceit, bribery, & treachery, then,
Yes, Rahm Emanuel has just COLLECTED TWO DOZEN "liberal" Democrat scalps (see our previous post) in his dictatorial determination to RAM THE INSURANCE COMPANY BAILOUT "health care" 'reform' extortion bill down hapless American families' throats.
Mr. Emanuel's tactics read as a "how to" in TREACHERY:
#1. Instead of coming out with a health care reform plan that Americans would actually applaud and flock to, Emanuel instructed Obama to DO NOTHING - play the aloof, distant god on Mt. Olympus - THEREBY SURRENDERING the Bully Pulpit, and SQUANDERING Obama's MANDATE for "CHANGE!" to the TEA-PARTY protesters and their astro-turf hit men, like DICK ARMEY and the entire Rethuglican rabble-rousing party.
#2. EVERY TIME that PUBLIC DEMAND for a Public Option (in itself a watered down Single Payer reform) bubbled to the surface - DESPITE Obama & Emanuel's treachery and deceit - Emanuel "masterfully" played the DELAY, DENY, DERAIL and DESTROY game.
#3. The above "delay, deny and destroy" tactic demanded EMPOWERING EVERY "yellow dog" backstabbing "Democrat" in the senate; so like a Broadway director hustling his showgirls across a stage, Emanuel trotted his "D.I.N.O." (Democrat In Name Only) Senators out one after another... to OBSTRUCT the will of the American people.
First Senator Baucus, then Senator Ben Nelson, then Senator Mary Landrieu, then Senator Blanche Lincoln, then even nominal "good guy" Senator Ken Conrad, and finally the DESPISED Senator Joe Lieberman... one after another EMANUEL PARADED THEM ACROSS THE STAGE, the cowardly Washington Post and lyin' New York Times duly reporting on the "chaos" & "confusion" in the Democrat Party - dutifully portraying Emanuel's premeditated Senate tag-team SABOTAGE DESTRUCTION as "the will of independent minded senators" "representing" their "conservative" constituents.
Emanuel's (and Obama's) health care "reform" bill is, above all, a monument to OBSTRUCTING THE WILL of the vast majority of Americans.
And the bottom line is, Emanuel (and obama) COULD __WHIP__ the Democrat HOUSE in line, after SABOTAGING a genuine reform bill for 15 months -
but the lying, treacherous, "ISRAEL UBER ALLES,"
"of, by, and for Goddamn-Sachs"
saboteur Rahm Emanuel REFUSED to WHIP the treacherous Dem Senators into line when Americans COULD have had a REAL, Public Option health care reform bill...
...instead of this "TRILLION DOLLARS extorted from American taxpayers & families
FOR my pals in the insurance industry" ATROCITY.
