Obama Consumed with Preparing for the Obamacare Decision
A lot of people are saying, if you’re really confident that you’re gonna be upheld, why even bring this up? Why even present the possibility, particularly to donors? Why show a lack of confidence to donors? And the point about him not doing it in public, well, you wouldn’t do it in public. You would not express a lack of confidence in public for people whose votes you need, but people whose money you need, maybe you do. So it’s just added to all the intrigue about this.
I think Obama is telling the truth to the donors. I think one of the things that you do with your donors, you give them the inside dope. It’s what you do. You tell your fat cat donors the inside info. That’s what they’re paying for, 35 grand plus a cheap dinner. That’s what they’re paying for. You tell them things you don’t say to the public. So I think when he says to fat cat donors, “We might need to redo it,” I think it’s an indication he might know something. He’s out in Minnesota right now, one of his six fundraisers today, very near Wisconsin, blaming Congress for the lack of jobs. Congress hasn’t done enough. And he said, “We can’t come out of this overnight.” Overnight? For crying out loud, you’ve told us for the past two years that we have come out of it.
