"I'm not sure the White House wants to own it" Democrats meet Pyrrhus

On Morn­ing Joe in the 7:15 hour David Gre­gory was asked by Harold Ford if Democ­rats will now be run­ning on Oba­macare. To those who have cheer­ing the loud­est over Oba­macare being upheld, he answer was astounding:

He said con­gres­sional can­di­dates in tough dis­tricts will not want to run on it and even the White House will may not want to own this issue, although they do.

Think about this all of you guys on the left who are cheer­ing this morn­ing and all you on the right who are glum. On the day when the Democ­rats should be in full cel­e­bra­tory mode, where the Morn­ing Joe crowd is burst­ing with Schaden­freude you have the White House and con­gres­sional can­di­dates run­ning away after a huge vic­tory. We haven’t seen any­thing like this since McClel­lan and the seven days.

Mean­while Mitt Rom­ney has raised mil­lions in under 24 hours and at the same time the Democ­rats can’t pay for their own con­ven­tion the GOP is spend­ing $2.2 mil­lion to pro­mote GOP house can­di­dates ON BOSTON TV.

As Gen­eral Nathanael Greene said after Bunker Hill: I wish we could sell them another hill at the same price.

Update: Just after I pub­lished this Eric Can­tor on Morn­ing Joe called this a Pyrrhic vic­tory for the White House and Chuck Todd when asked directly by Joe Scar­bor­ough if the “Claire McCaskill will want to run on this.” Todd admit­ted she and oth­ers con­gres­sional can­di­dates are being “very care­ful” on this.

I hope the democ­rats enjoyed their one night stand, because their party will be pay­ing for it through Novem­ber and beyond.

Update 2: Michael Gra­ham gets it:

Keep­ing Oba­macare alive means Mitt Rom­ney still has this unpop­u­lar plan to cam­paign against, includ­ing the indi­vid­ual man­date, the most unpop­u­lar part (60 per­cent of Amer­i­cans oppose it). Do you really think turn­ing the man­date from a gov­ern­ment edict to a mas­sive tax hike will make it more popular?

Update 3: That’s gotta smart

Update: The DaT­e­chGuy Fundraiser is in progress, our goal is $3000 and any help is appre­ci­ated. (Hey if Mitt can raise 2.4 mil­lion in 24 hours a foot sol­dier in this fight should be worth at least $3000 or so.

On Morning Joe in the 7:15 hour David Gregory was asked by Harold Ford if Democrats will now be running on Obamacare. To those who have cheering the loudest over Obamacare being upheld, he answer was astounding:

He said congressional candidates in tough districts will not want to run on it and even the White House will may not want to own this issue, although they do.

Think about this all of you guys on the left who are cheering this morning and all you on the right who are glum. On the day when the Democrats should be in full celebratory mode, where the Morning Joe crowd is bursting with Schadenfreude you have the White House and congressional candidates running away after a huge victory. We haven’t seen anything like this since McClellan and the seven days.

Meanwhile Mitt Romney has raised millions in under 24 hours and at the same time the Democrats can’t pay for their own convention the GOP is spending $2.2 million to promote GOP house candidates ON BOSTON TV.

As General Nathanael Greene said after Bunker Hill: I wish we could sell them another hill at the same price.

Update: Just after I published this Eric Cantor on Morning Joe called this a Pyrrhic victory for the White House and Chuck Todd when asked directly by Joe Scarborough if the “Claire McCaskill will want to run on this.” Todd admitted she and others congressional candidates are being “very careful” on this.

I hope the democrats enjoyed their one night stand, because their party will be paying for it through November and beyond.

Update 2: Michael Graham gets it:

Keeping Obamacare alive means Mitt Romney still has this unpopular plan to campaign against, including the individual mandate, the most unpopular part (60 percent of Americans oppose it). Do you really think turning the mandate from a government edict to a massive tax hike will make it more popular?

Update 3: That’s gotta smart

Update: The DaTechGuy Fundraiser is in progress, our goal is $3000 and any help is appreciated. (Hey if Mitt can raise 2.4 million in 24 hours a foot soldier in this fight should be worth at least $3000 or so.
