“President Obama’s desire to do something “historic” by succeeding, where previous presidents had failed, was perfectly consistent for a man consumed with his own ego satisfaction, rather than the welfare of the country or even of his own political party.
As for the public, it doesn’t matter if your Congressman answers your letter with a form letter, or doesn’t answer at all. What matters is that you let him know what you are for or against and, when enough people do that— whether in letters, in polls or in an election, politicians get the message, because they know their jobs depend on it.
As for what is likely to happen to health care, neither the bill passed by the House of Representatives nor the Senate bill can be expected to be enacted into law. Meanwhile, Obama’s reaction to his political setback has been to respond rhetorically and to call on the political operatives who helped engineer his successful election campaign in 2008. But the public did not know him then, and his rhetoric may not fool them again, now that they do.”
Thomas Sowell, Great Scott!
