Everyone needs to take note of the President of United States, stating the obvious message that yours truly advocated for all Democrats this season:

I’ve said before, I will always work with anyone who is willing to make this law work even better.  But the debate over repealing this law is over.  The Affordable Care Act is here to stay.  (Applause.)
I wrote a couple of weeks ago:
The issue of Obamacare, by the law, by the voters, and by consumers, is settled. Republican politicians may want to re-litigate Obamacare again, but as far as the courts and the government is concerned this is a done deal. Democrats need to make this case as it is the only case that needs be made for Obamacare. That is how you unite Democrats around the message for Obamacare. It's the law, move on. If Republicans want to talk about the past, let them. Democrats should be talking about the future. We've got a lot of problems to fix.
Since I wrote that, there are now polls backing me up. The American people are buying it and tired of talking about it. Its here, its done, its over. President Obama agrees.

There is nothing any Democrat can do about Republicans who hate ObamaCare and hate President Obama. This is a given. You cant convince these people with ObamaCare Lite. What you can do is not debate what is settled and instead move on to other business. Other business that our people care about. Fuck republicans. Let em bitch about ObamaCare until the cows come home...were done here. This thing is here to stay. Face it.

The only thing that unites the GOP is ObamaCare, so they have no choice but to talk about it endlessly. We can do nothing about that. Except...force them to talk about something else. Because as soon as they do, they are split.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
