Spin City with Baghdad Bob Gibbs

It's official. The Obama Administration and proponents of government-run health care must think the American people are total and complete idiots.

On Sunday, the Obama Administration released a trial balloon that Obama was willing to "compromise" on health care reform by dropping the government-run "public option" from ObamaCare and replacing it with a so-called "health care co-op."

On Monday, the Obama Administration started backing away, ever so slightly, from that trial balloon.

Linda Douglass, communications director for the White House Office of Health Reform, said Obama still "believes the public option is the best way" to achieve his goals.

And White House Press Secretary Robert "Baghdad Bob" Gibbs emphatically stated that previous comments regarding the health care co-ops "were misinterpreted" but hedged the statement by saying that "Obama is happy to look at them [alternatives to the public-option]."

If your head is spinning, don't be confused. The trial balloon is nothing more than an indication of what is to come in this battle over ObamaCare.

Simply put, after having failed to pass ObamaCare in the dark of night... after having failed to ram ObamaCare down the throats of the American people... the Obama Administration is moving to "Plan C."

In short, they'll try to put lipstick on this pig of a health care plan... they'll change the terminology and announce so-called "compromises" until you believe that they are backing down from their statist plan to impose government-run health care on every man, woman and child in the United States.

So don't be deceived. As with the Amnesty debate two years ago, every so-called "compromise" will be more of the same... every so-called "compromise" will essentially give the proponents of ObamaCare everything they want.

And that's why we must take the bull by the horns and make our voices heard. Now is the time to tell our elected officials, in no uncertain terms, that we want "no compromises."

Now is the time to tell our elected officials that we want ObamaCare buried... that we will not accept ObamaCare, no matter how it is packaged... that we will not accept ObamaCare in any way, shape or form.
