Grassley ‘resents’ Obama over healthcare
Source: The Hill

The relationship between Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley (Iowa), a key player in the healthcare debate, and the White House remains strained over barbs traded during the August recess, Grassley indicated Thursday.

Grassley blasted accusations made by White House aides that his ultimately unsuccessful efforts to work on a bipartisan healthcare bill with committee Chairman Max Baucus (D-Mont.) and others were insincere.

“I kind of resent that, when I’ve been very candid with the president of the United States” about his positions on contentious issues in healthcare reform, Grassley said.

Grassley also took direct aim at President Barack Obama, suggesting that he soured the chances for cooperation.

“I’ll tell you, there’s some things that the president has said since then that I took very personally,” Grassley said. “He gave some speeches during August in which he was associating me with efforts to make this a political document.”

1. Grassley, you spread the "Obama is going to kill grandma" bullshit.
The day after Obama publicly praised your willingness to be "bipartisan".

So fuck you.

42. Senator Brassley (R-Brassley Balls)
Senator Brassley, he of the Brassley balls, must have gotten some brass implantations, to have enough brass in his balls to take offense at Obama's response to his outright lying and smearing.

44. someone who knows him who was on Countdown said Grassley is
a backbencher without a clue. He probably genuinely doesn't understand why Obama is mad at him - Lawrence O'Brien. (I think)

47. Lying Senator or Clueless Senator. Take your pick. The Senate has no back bench.
If he is clueless, he has no business being a Senator, let alone a member of the Gang of Six.

48. The hysteria they exhibit when called out on their lies is just amazing.
Typical bullies - never started anything, not their fault. But when the little kid fights back, they run screaming to the first authority figure for cover and revenge.

That they have even a minority following is just mind-blowing. You'd think all the he-man republics and their women would have nothing but disdain for such huge wusses.

Conservatism is a mental disorder.

4. How DARE President Obama challenge Grassley after Grassley said Obama wanted to pull the plug on
Granny. How rude! Chuck can say anything he wants and he still expects the President to suck up to him. Sorry, that isn't happening anymore.

of trying to kill Grandma. That is not candid, it is not good faith, and it is downright craven.

24. That's "mewling" ackshully, but it's the perfect word, yes.
Grassley talks about the public option "pulling the plug on Grandma" and then tries to get all huffy and pretend that's NOT exactly what he said.

18. 'grandma dying' = insincere but someone who would say it obviously won't get what 'tact' is

Grassley is a 'simple' person. Let him have his little crying spat and buy him a nice candy bar on the way out of the 5 and dime. He'll be just fine.

35. What a disingenuous ass hole
Obama goes out of his way to get something done in a bipartisan approach and then he has to deal with death panels and such garbage.

Grassley is such a dick, but they behavior is anything, if not consistent. Grassley, McConnel, Boehner, they're all the same.

45. President Obama is being bipartisan. It's the RePUKEblicans who doesn't want to be bipartisan!
I'm sick and tired of Grassley and those GOF (Grand Old Fools) making up lies about President Obama about that "pullin' the plug on grandma" bullshit! That is so bogus, and they know damn well that Grassley had made that crap up. The prez had stated a thousand times that if they have better ideas about health care, bring it to the table. You know what? They don't have a damn thing. It is so sad that most of the RePUKEblicans doesn't want to work with this president. Their kindergarden days are over, and they need to act like adults and stop spreading lies about the president's health care plan.
