Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead: Plouffe called back to WH, says Obama must ‘fight like hell’, pass the hated health care bill and ‘pass politically difficult measures’ aka cutting Social Security, raising taxes….

And they’re off! It’s like the charge of the stupid brigade. As we have been predicting time immemorial, here come the SS cuts and tax increases. Obama is ready to focus like a laser, lol, on the deficit, BWAAAAHAA *cough cough*, and David ‘every fundraising email I send is an attack on Hillary or Sarah’ Plouffe has been called back to the fold to bravely lead Obama to the correct path for electoral victory…

So where does David suggest we begin? By ramming through the DESPISED health care bill of course! Followed by passing ‘politically difficult measures’, can you say ‘cutting Gen Xs Social Security’ and raising taxes?, cuz I can!’

David Plouffe in the WaPo:

…We still have much to do before November, and time is running short. Every race has unique characteristics, but there are a few general things that Democrats can do to strengthen our hand.

Pass a meaningful health insurance reform package without delay. Americans’ health and our nation’s long-term fiscal health depend on it. I know that the short-term politics are bad….

…That’s why Democrats must create a strong foundation for long-term growth by addressing health care, energy and education reform.

(MiM-Yeah b/c it’s not like every single speech of Obama’s has focused on health care, education or energy before now right? oh yeah)

…We must also show real leadership by passing some politically difficult measures to help stabilize the economy in the short term. Voters are always smarter than they are given credit for. We need to make our case on the economy and jobs — and yes, we can remind voters where Republican policies led us — and if we do, without apology and with force, it will have impact….

Great without apology and with force, this is just who Obama needs now! Someone to tell him DAMN THE TORPEDOES AND FULL SPEED AHEAD!! Passing ‘politically difficult measures’ gee wonder what that could mean…

Make sure voters understand what the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act did for the economy

See there is that patronizing BS again, we just don’t UNDERSTAND how WONDERFUL the 700 billion dollar boondoggle was! So the UE rate is still climbing and at 10% really is a sign of the success of the stimulus! It is apparently just a matter of enlightenment waiting to happen if they find just the right words, or tone in delivery of another greatest speech evah…Satori awaits us America! they just need a good Zen Koan….

Don’t accept any lectures on spending…(MiM- OMG cannot even begin to fisk this one)..We have potent talking points on health care, honest budgeting and cuts in previously sacrosanct programs.

Yeah David! Talk up how your guy tried to GUT 500 BILLION from Medicare, a previously SACROSANCT program, that’ll really turn the voters back to you! See he thinks it is GOOD, they are gonna double down and gut SS Im a tellin ya!

Plouffe also makes it really clear it is time to gin up the machine and get a few million more from ‘donors’ like DooDadPro and organize those ‘first time’voters, y’uh -huh..ACORN/SEIU/Soros they are calling you-uuuuuuu

…Our campaigns can leave no stone unturned, from believing in the power of grass-roots volunteers and voter registration, to using technology and data innovatively, to raising money –– especially with big corporate interests now freed up to dump hundreds of millions of dollars to elect those who will do their bidding. Democratic candidates must do everything well. Each one must make sure that the first-time voters from 2008 living in your state or district — more than 15 million nationwide — are in their sights. Build a relationship with those voters, organize them and educate them. On Nov. 3, many races are sure to be decided by just a few thousand if not a few hundred votes. These voters can make the difference. …

Yeah those ‘voters’ certainly made a difference in those Dem caucuses fer shure.

His next message is don’t let those millions of pixxed off Americans screaming STOP! get in the way:

HotAir: Census cuts ACORN loose…

AllahPundit has the scoop at HA:

(…)Update: This is not the ACORN they thought they knew, although, um, it is for pretty much everyone else.

“We do not come to this decision lightly,” Census director Robert Groves wrote in a letter to ACORN, which was obtained by The Associated Press.

In splitting with ACORN, Groves sought to tamp down GOP concerns and negative publicity that the partnership will taint the 2010 head count.

“It is clear that ACORN’s affiliation with the 2010 census promotion has caused sufficient concern in the general public, has indeed become a distraction from our mission, and may even become a discouragement to public cooperation, negatively impacting 2010 census efforts,” Groves wrote….

Michelle Bachmann wins one against ACORN…

Awesome Rep. Bachmann! and Frank actually APOLOGIZED to ACORN, pathetic! From Politico:

Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.), who spent much of Wednesday battling the GOP over the bias crimes bill, is offering a big mea culpa for failing to kill an amendment by Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN since Politico wont tell you) preventing ACORN from getting federal funds because they have members who were indicted for voter registration fraud.  passed by the House.

“I made a mistake yesterday in not objecting to the Bachmann amendment. I did not read it carefully, and it was in the last minute that the amendment was accepted. It is a deeply flawed amendment and I am opposed to it,” said Frank, the chairman of the House Financial Services Committee.

“Banning people from possible participation in government programs based on an indictment is a violation of the basic principles of due process, and I intend to offer a corrected amendment when the bill comes to the floor of the House next week.”

No word from Barney Frank on how Stimulus Money was SPECIFICALLY legislated OUT of Blagos hands since he considers “banning people from possible participation in government programs based on an indictment is a violation of the basic principles of due process”. I guess only SOME bills need to meet the basic principles of due process….Maybe Rep Frank needs to speak to Rep Kirk and Rep Foster on their bipartisan amendment to strip Gov Blagojevich who was not even indicted at the time of power over stimulus funds!!!!

HYPOCRISY THY NAME IS BARNEY FRANK
