Democrats may have just lost one of their own in the high-stakes fight over ObamaCare -- or maybe not. Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., a moderate Democrat known at times to buck his party, said Thursday that he´d be willing to support a spending bill that also delays the law´s requirement on individuals to buy health insurance. "There´s no way I could not vote for it," Manchin said. "It´s very reasonable and sensible." Manchin made the comment at a Bloomberg Government breakfast. The comment, first reported by Bloomberg, was later confirmed by Fox News. But hours later, the senator put out a statement

Hey Joe, "...very reasonable and sensible" is not found in the Alinsky playbook.

You´re in over your head, and probably too nice a guy to be hanging around these DC types.

manchin is not a moderate. He is a liberal democrat. manchin´s fake advocacy for the coal industry makes him a contender for the most intellectually dishonest critter in the senate.

He was Booker´ed quickly and sternly, no doubt about it. Sorry West Virginia, your Sen Manchin is owned by the White House, utterly and completely. Keep on votin´ for Dems who carry guns and shoot at trees to be melodramatic, and TALK a good game and see where it gets you. Ultimately, he´s a Donk, like any other Donk. So, how dumb are ya? And BTW, extremely lucky for you all that coal is a viable export product, or you´d be completely sunk now by this environmentally ill regime.

Th only reason this slug gets elected in WV is the because so many still believe the in old days when it was said that D´s are for the poor and the R´s are for the rich. Old ignorance dies hard and back woods slicks like Manchin know it and ride it to bank.

Moderate Democrat = one who makes a Freudian slip, but quickly recovers while scurrying quickly back to the Left with his tail between his legs.

"Moderate Democrat" is a contradiction in terms. An oxymoron. With emphasis on the moron.

Walk backs always happen now courtesy of NSA spying tips to the DNC. I wonder, do NSA performance evaluations now depend on how many phone conversations, e-mails, faxes, etc. are leaked to the DNC? The higher the number, the higher the bonus?

If it is true that someone got to Manchin and that Manchin wimped out, that is exactly what epitomizes Washington pols -- spinelessness. Threaten them when they vote or speak their consciences and they fold like a cheap suit.

Cruz was trying to tell Americans and Washington that Congresspeople are supposed to do the will of the people, not the Party.

I wonder if Manchin was surprised when he first landed in Washington and was told that he and his West Virginia constituents opinions were irrelevant and he was there to be neutered into the Party Machine. This could explain some of the obvious substance abuse issues in Congress.

It´s uncommon for progressives to say something and then walk it back.

Yesterday, I heard Rush call ObamaCare a bait and switch plan, and today I read someone use the same expression. All kinds of things were promised that have been walked back: keep your plan - you can´t afford your plan; your kids can stay on until age 26 - your company is cancelling their family plan; keep your doctor - your doctor can´t afford to keep practicing. Anyway, poorly written, but everyone should be told it´s a bait and switch plan when Reid or others tell us it is the law of the land.

#22--I know someone who was invited to one of those pre-election get-togethers trying to drum up contributions for Obama. The campaign worker candidly said that Obama´s health care plan was just a first step towards single-payer. They know it is going to wreck the insurance industry and force employers to stop offering coverage. The government will then step in to "fix" the problem.

Manchin is not a moderate democrat. This is no such thing as a moderated democrat he might be a democrat but didn´t become a communist yet. That´s about all and this WV turkey Joe Manchin had an attack of mental integrity for a second then caught himself.
What´s a ´walk back´? Is that some liberal speak for "I lied and didn´t mean it"? I´m sick of these leftist communist liars.

Interesting that there is a lot of similarity between a moderate Palestinian, a moderate Muslim and a moderate democrat.
For one thing they don´t exist.fo another they all lie and then correct or walk-back the next day.
and recall that legislator that would not vote for ObamNoCare if it contained funding for abortion. Finally he walked-it-back when Obama wrote out some letter and then later ignored the entire thing. But obama got the vote on crap-care.

There are a lot of people planning on this stuff for serious health reasons. They´ll be roasted if they delay it. It´s going to be a headache no matter when it begins. They may as well implement now and the eternal process fixing it.

(And yes, I do think it´s wrong that in today´s economy you can work a full time job and be paid so little that you can´t afford health care.)

Manchin is an admiral of sorts since someone provided him with a yacht upon which to host gun control parties for fellow legislators, such as Pat Toomey.
And Sestak, the retired Admiral, Friend of Bill, and once and future candidate for office in PA, makes Manchin look like Barry Goldwater.

#30 -- It´s not that you´re paid so little. It´s that medical services cost so much.

Case in point, from some recent research by members of the L clan: What the local regional hospital pays the manufacturer for an Oxford patellar prosthesis (replacement knee): $5,000. What the local regional hospital charges the patient -- and mind you, this is for the chunk of titanium ALONE, nothing else: $60,000. That´s a 6 followed by FOUR zeroes, or a 1200% mark-up.

Also thank the New Non-Citizens who´ve turned damned near every ER in the country into their free private sniffles-and-scuffs clinic, and the ambulance-chasing shysters for the crushing med-mal insurance rates that have helped make them rich (and ensured their unflagging support of the U.S. Communist Party).

Joe Manchin is a snake. What happened was to be expected. WV is so convoluted. They will vote for a Republican for President, but lose their minds over Democrats for other offices. So strange.

Manchin was elected because of gun control. He was against it in the election, then all of a sudden, after the election miraculously he was for it.

On Tuesday morning, a plane owned in trust by the Bank of Utah showed up in a very visible area of the Mehrabad Airport in Tehran, the capital of the Islamic Republic of Iran. What was it doing there exactly? Nobody knows, reports The New York Times. Under President Barack Obama, the United States has eased some of the long-standing punitive economic sanctions against Iran. Still, very little American — or European — economic activity is allowed inside the religious theocracy. The Bank of Utah is certainly no Wells Fargo. The Ogden-based community bank has all of 13 branches including

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers.

Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have
