The National Journal reports this morning:
Grassley said he spoke with a Democratic House member last week who shared Obama’s bleak reaction during a private meeting to reports that some factions of House Democrats were lining up to stall or even take down the overhaul unless leaders made major changes.
“Let’s just lay everything on the table,” Grassley said. “A Democrat congressman last week told me after a conversation with the president that the president had trouble in the House of Representatives, and it wasn’t going to pass if there weren’t some changes made … and the president says, ‘You’re going to destroy my presidency.’ “

What’s the matter? Did Pelosi run out of money to bribe them with?
And Still MORE:
How unpopular is ObamaCare getting? This unpopular:
Rasmussen: 53% oppose ObamaCare

Obama will try to resuscitate his plan in tonight’s press conference. Keef and Tingles are counting down the minutes. (link fixed).
