President Obama made an extremely rare weekend visit to Capitol Hill today desperately trying to get free-thinking Democrats to fall in line on Obamacare. No one knows exactly what kind of behind-closed-door deals were offered (or closed) but it's likely that billions of dollars in bribes...err, earmarks were proposed. Also, offers of political support in upcoming primaries were probably made or threatened to be withheld depending on whether moderate and conservative Democrats choose to vote for the president's far left agenda or side with the will of their own constituents.

The message from the voters was clear as Republicans took the Governor's mansion in both Virginia and New Jersey; two states which only a year ago voted to put Barack Obama in the Oval Office. Voters said a resounding no to Democrats and the Obama message in these two pivotal elections; results that will almost certainly sway many moderate Democrats in Congress from supporting the president's far left agenda.

Republican state Assemblywoman Dierdre Scozzafava suspended her campaign today for New York's 23rd District's congressional seat. Since this removed the probability that the Republican vote would be split between Ms. Scozzafava and Conservative Party candidate Doug Hoffman, a Hoffman victory is all but certain over Democrat Bill Owens in the strongly conservative district. But if you blinked, you missed the liberal media's coverage of today's development.

There has been plenty of talk about next week's gubernatorial elections in New Jersey and Virginia; how victory by either or both of the Republican candidates would be a rejection of the Obama administration and its policies. But there's also a special election in New York Congressional District 23 being held on Tuesday that may send that same message even if the Democrat wins.

Apparently according to the Democratic National Committee and the Obama administration, when someone reaches their hand across the ideological aisle the appropriate reaction is to grab their hand, spin them around and stab them in the back. That's the spirit of bipartisanship that greeted former Republican presidential candidate and Senator Bob Dole when he tried to meet the administration halfway on health care reform.
