Obama like a bad date
By Jen Shroder

So President Obama has extended the health bill deadline yet AGAIN. What part of "no" does he not understand? We keep rejecting him but he ignores our protests. His nudges have progressed into shoves as America is crowded like a cheap date into the backseat of his Pontiac. Like a cad who refuses to take "no" for an answer, Obama assures us over and over that he has the answer to all of our questions but doesn't want to tell us what it is until after he's had his way. Most men this persistent get their faces slapped, but I doubt the Secret Service would understand.

America has said NO and we mean it, we keep trying to walk away, but Obama is twisting the arms of his Congressional gang to help shove. How did America end up as a cheap date waking up prematurely from a roofie? After all, Obama was recommended to us, well, Bill Ayers? Reverend Wright? (wince) But Obama has a great reputation of...uh oh, what has he EVER done before? We bounded down the stairs and out the door with this man because, well, he's such a smooth talker...whoops. And now he's insisting on something we had no intention of participating in while whispering in our ear that his provisions "can never be amended." (gasp) As in "forever" Barry? Do you mean to marry me? What's that? You'd rather be a one term President that's had his way with me than go the duration as long as you "fundamentally transform" me?

Somehow I have the feeling that my "fundamental transformation" has nothing to do with a ring and a future, instead I'll be left with a socialist disease.

The answer is NO, Mr. President. NO! We do NOT want to get in this vehicle, get your hands off our credit card and get Harry Reid out of our way! We don't care WHAT Nancy says, we don't need to get in the backseat with you to see what you're selling. So TAKE US HOME, Mr. President, TAKE US HOME. We survived the War of 1812, the Mexican-American War, the Civil War, the Spanish-American War, World War I, World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, Desert Storm and when the smoke cleared our nation stood strong holding the banner, our American flag for freedom! We counted our losses, we mourned our sons and daughters, but our nation and our nation alone withstood all battles for FREEDOM. Only to be pushed into the back seat of Obama's car through a maligned "reconciliation" with Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid pushing right along with him. They are stopping at nothing, even using little boys with trumped up stories that make no sense. What single unemployed mother couldn't qualify for health care?

Would you like to hear my sob story of a chronically cheating husband that asked me not to divorce him because he was dying of liver damage (alcoholism) and was afraid to be cut off from my medical insurance? I waited for two years before he told me California would cover his medical expenses and has been ever since the divorce became final. How is it that a single unemployed mom can't qualify but my ex-husband can? In fact, states close to the border are going broke but they manage to pay medical expenses for illegal aliens. There is something seriously flawed with the sob stories claimed by progressives. Our country has stood for so much, we are the most charitable nation on the planet, we have defended freedom, we have survived so much, I shudder to think we might not survive President Obama and his co-conspirators in Congress making up sob stories.

We will remember who votes for this bill. We will remember who shoved this bill down our throats. If Obama succeeds, we will remember who helped push us into the backseat of his car, and those names will go down in history, way, way down.
