Smell The Desperation- House Majority (For Now) Whip: Hey, Keep The Democrats In Charge And Maybe We'll Take A Run At The Public Option Next Year!

Yeah, the huge House majority and filibuster proof majority in the Senate weren't enough to get this liberal dream through but if they can hang on this year, really, they are on it!

This is how pathetic the Democrats effort to get their base out has become.

"Reelect me, keep Democrats on the field. And when we come back next year, maybe we will get to the public option," Majority Whip James Clyburn (S.C.) said during an appearance on the Tom Joyner Morning Show.

Clyburn has been traveling the country and making media appearances this week in an effort to drum up lagging voter enthusiasm on the Democratic side heading into the Nov. 2 midterms.

The public healthcare option was a top prize for liberal activists during the nearly two-year long debate over healthcare reform, but it was scrapped from the final legislation after support for it fell short in the Senate.

Maybe this is what Henry Waxman was talking about when he got so excited about getting rid of some those damn 'blue dog' Democrats.

Of course, this is absolute BS. Even if the Democrats could keep the House (they won't) they are going to be crippled in the Senate, if they manage to keep the majority there. But yeah, after a bloodbath the public option will be on the table.

Still, if Clyburn thinks that will fire up Democrats, maybe it'll fire up conservatives too.

Vote Republican Like Your Life Depends On It
Because It Just Might If The Public Option Comes Back!

On a more serious note...this is why health care reform must be repealed. If it's not, some dark day may see the Democrats returned to power and you know they will try it then. They never give up.

Be the Wave!
