"But, but...we woooon!"

Oh, this is golden, lefties pitching a fit because they're not getting their way...

WASHINGTON — Frustrated liberals have a question for President Barack Obama and Democratic lawmakers: Isn't it time the other guys gave a little ground on health care? What's the point of a bipartisan bill, they ask, if we're making all the concessions?
Liberal activists say there's no point in the Democrats winning the House, Senate and White House unless they use their clout to enact the major measures that Obama campaigned for — with or without some Republican support.

Funny stuff. Do they think the Democrats who are trying to get this through are making all these concessions in an effort to be bipartisan? Come on, we all know they never expected there to be such an outcry from the people as there has been at the town hall meetings. It's pretty funny that there's nary a word in this story about any of that. I knew a lot of modern-day lefties lived in a dream world, but I'd have never pegged it to be THAT different from reality. Have these people not yet figured out that a politician's primary interest is his own reelection? Were it not for the fact that there'd likely be no sunset clause in the government health care bill, I think it'd be fun to see the leftists push the plan through Congress that contains everything they want -- and come next year, get their ranks depleted in an electoral blowout that would make 1994 look puny in comparison. For all anyone knows, the way things are going now that might happen to a large extent. I for one certainly hope so, but we'll see.

"....can't someone here stop it? EMPIRE!"
