On Monday, July 20, 2009, President Obama, facing steadily growing opposition to his Universal Healthcare legislation, struck out at the Republicans who, along with a growing number of Democrats, find the plan currently before the US House of Representatives to be a piss poor thing.
Attempting to paint the opposition as being based entirely on partisanship and personal hatred, President Obama declared that, “This isn’t about me!”
The truly ironic thing is that he’s completely and utterly right.
This isn’t about President Obama. This isn’t about politics. This is about a proposed health care system that would break America’s families, break America’s businesses, and break America’s economy.
Any President who tried such ill-conceived thing would be treated in exactly the same manner and face the same levels of opposition. Just ask the Clintons. 😉
