Many were the signs auguring the worst for Obamacare....that it was an ill-fated law destined to be a healthcare and political catastrophe that would damage the presidency and Democratic Party, and possibly end up on the ash heap of history. In this series I will explore all of these signs starting with Harry Reid's now forgotten 2009 Christmas Day gaffe when he accidentally or providentially voted "no" on Obamacare.
On December 26, 2009 I published the following piece on Townhall:
Praised for his wisdom, stamina and loyalty to the cause Harry Reid struggled heroically like Hercules of yore; through months of painful negotiations, through wind, rain and snow, to reach this historic moment when his efforts would mature and he got his 60 votes on Obama's healthcare law.But before the end was reached and the final vote cast the inexplicable occurred like a terrible portent. When it came time for him to vote Hercules Harry as if in a trance embarrassed himself and voted "NO" as the Senate roared with laughter at the gaffe. But what in heavens was its cause? A moment of mental confusion from old age? Or was he lucid in some profound unearthly way? When he said "NO" against the bill of the century then quickly changed his vote? Did fatigue from his labors overcome his mind? Or was his inner voice speaking Freudian like? His super ego or unconscious soul, something better inside that intuitively knows what Harry the lefty denies: that he and his party are recklessly crossing a dangerous and deadly divide; and that one day soon he might bitterly regret not having kept his vote at nyet.
Not once but twice Harry Reid voted "nyet" on Obamacare. Amazingly, 13 weeks latter on March 25, 2010 (three days after Obama signed his bill into law) Reid voted "no" on the healthcare reconciliation bill with the Senate in an uproar. Both votes it would seem anticipated Obama's laughable healthcare clown show that comics are ridiculing to death on late night shows.  Obama's latest farce is handled by Charles Krauthammer in this piece.

Isn't it ironic that this fraudulent comedy of errors called Obamacare was made possible by documented voter fraud in Minnesota which elected former SNL comic Al Franken to the Senate? see When 1,099 felons vote in race won by 312 ballots | WashingtonExaminer.com 



  1. For a half second dirty Harry for once in his life did the right thing and voted no for Obama (train wreck) care. If he had kept it no Obama and the Dems would be much better off today.

    1. I distinctly recall Reid’s first mistaken “no.” The second one is new to me. You’re right JP if Reid kept it at no Obama wouldn’t be looking like the biggest fool ever to inhabit the White House.

  2. My goodness Apollo, for the second time this week you have told me something I didn’t know. I didn’t know about Harry Reid voting “no” on Obamacare. And I have prided myself on staying up on the news.
    Yes, the whole thing sounds like a vision of things to come. :-)

  3. For one split second dirty filthy lying leftist Harry voted for freedom, then he fell back into the darkness of tyranny.

  4. You know when John Roberts handed down his infamous decision on Obamanationcare I immediately thought of Franken’s election. This travesty was the Republicans fault. They just laid down and took it without fighting back. Shame on them


    Al Franken won the seat fair and square- and endured months of recounts so that all parties could ensure a legitimate outcome. Your guy lost! Deal with it!

    1. Fair and square? Oh really? What about the 2812 dead voters that voted for Franken and were counted as living?

  6. What do you mean voter fraud elected Franken? If that were true don’t you think Eric Holder would have investigated it? Lol!!

  7. Erik Holder actually , really , truly investigate corruption,.. You are joking aren’t you? He is more corrupt than Franken himself!!! Gave me a good laugh, thanks!!!!!
