Pelosi is donning her suicide vest

Honestly, after the drubbing conservatives took at the polls in the last national election I was in a very dark place.  It seemed clear to me that the political tides were solidly against almost everything I look for in my government.  While soccer moms and liberals everywhere were celebrating hope, politically, I saw none.

Who would have thought just a year ago that I would be able to gleefully read the headlines almost daily and see the Democratic machine slowly consume itself.  One would think that having control of both houses and the Presidency, the Dems would have been able to cause more damage to our Republic than all enemies, both foreign and domestic could have imagined over the last two hundred years.  Yet despite having every political advantage, it looks as though they are about to experience their most monumental failure.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi urged her colleagues to back a major overhaul of U.S. health care even if it threatens their political careers, a call to arms that underscores the issue's massive role in this election year.
Lawmakers sometimes must enact policies that, even if unpopular at the moment, will help the public, Pelosi said in an interview being broadcast Sunday the ABC News program "This Week."
"We're not here just to self-perpetuate our service in Congress," she said. "We're here to do the job for the American people."

Basically, Nancy Pelosi is hoping that the representatives of her party will ignore the will of the public in order to enact her socialist agenda.  In essence she is asking them to strap on their political suicide vests in the hopes of receiving their promised 72 socialist virgins at a later date.

It's unclear whether Pelosi's remarks will embolden or chill dozens of moderate House Democrats who face withering criticisms of the health care proposal in visits with constituents and in national polls.

Is it really that unclear?  It does not take a PHD in Political Science to rightly assume that 2010 will be a political blood bath for liberals in this country.  Yet Pelosi and Reid continue to resist the will of the people.  Apparently she and Harry really believe they are smarter than the rest of us.

It took courage for Congress to pass Social Security and Medicare, which eventually became highly popular, she said, "and many of the same forces that were at work decades ago are at work again against this bill."

No Nancy.  Things are different.  The American voter is smarter.  They realize that sometime in the future the bill will come due for your view of Utopia.  And we are not willing to mortgage the future of our children and grandchildren to finance your pipe dream.  You lost Ted Kennedy's seat.  How much more convincing do you need?
