Health Care reform is secondary to Obama's legacy

Finally the Democrats are admitting it. The American people be damned, legislators are not really voting for health care reform, they are voting for President Obama again.

There are some Democrats that are finally admitting that they are voting for the health care bill in order to save Obama's presidency. The will of the people be damned, the Democrats must save President Obama.


One caucus member told POLITICO that Obama won him over by “essentially [saying] that the fate of his presidency” hinged on this week’s health reform vote in the House. The member, who requested anonymity, likened Obama’s remarks to an earlier meeting with progressives when the president said a victory was necessary to keep him “strong” for the next three years of his term.

Another caucus member, Rep. Jose Serrano (D-N.Y.), said, “We went in there already knowing his presidency would be weakened if this thing went down, but the president clearly reinforced the impression the presidency would be damaged by a loss.”

Added Serrano: “He was subtle, but that was the underlying theme of the meeting — the importance of passing this for the health of the presidency.”

Democrats were very excited yesterday over Rep. Dennis Kucinich flip flop to a "yes" vote. The Congressman made it pretty clear why he switched his vote, he did it to save the Obama presidency.

"You do have to be very careful that the potential of President Obama's presidency not be destroyed by this debate. Even though I have many differences with him on policy, there's something much bigger at stake here for America."

Passing a piece of legislation that the American people are defiantly against is going to "save" Obama's Presidency?

Seriously liberals, please explain the logic in that.
