Obama Continues
on Political Suicide Track

March 11, 2010 (EIRNS)—With what appears to be full backing from his British masters, Barack Obama has thrown himself headlong into a new desperate campaign to pass his Hitler health-care program. Some sources have hinted that this effort may succeed in papering over the widening splits within the administration, which is being increasingly compared with the one-term failure called the Jimmy Carter Presidency. That would be a very short-sighted view.

All the President is actually doing is preparing the political ground for his own impeachment.

In reality, Obama's new health jihad is only further ripping apart the government, and the nation.

  1. The President is demanding that House Democrats roll over and pass the Senate bill—on the basis of trusting that the Senate will amend their bill later, to the House's liking. As numerous House members have said, such a procedure is not a leap of faith, but a leap into the abyss.

  2. The President is constantly lecturing the House Democrats that they have to do what he demands, no matter whether it means committing political suicide or not. This attitude, in addition to concrete measures being taken by the White House to get Congress in line, including encouraging the resignation or demotion of Congressmen considered to be "problems," is leading to a virtual state of war between the Hill and the White House.

  3. The President's renewed campaign to push through his health bill is further pushing the American population, already in a mass strike mode, into a state of fury, as they realize that he could care less about the disastrous collapse in their standard of living, including job losses and home foreclosures—and about the fact that the majority of the American people outright reject his health scheme. Indeed, after Obama's March 8 public appearance on health, his negative rating (the different between strong disapproval and strong approval) fell to its lowest level, -21. The last time it hit the low mark, was just after the Senate Democrats rammed through the health bill on Dec. 24.

Obama can't win, but the American people can lose, if they don't mobilize behind Lyndon LaRouche's leadership for impeachment, in the immediate weeks ahead.
