    The GOP:


    • showed up but leave their principles and the interests of the American people in their cars.
    • Point out to the Democrats that this could have all been done if they had been included at the beginning.
    • Compromise with everything.
    • America loses.

    The Democrats:


    • Mr. Obama speaks smoothly, looks suave and manages to humm and ahh his way through without actually getting to any point. GOP skewers him and makes him look foolish.
    • Pelosi frightens small children and racoons when the television turns on her while she speaks
    • Democrats whine about not getting any Republican votes even though they didn't need them
    • They agree to go with Mr. Obama's proposal, as was planned before they even sat down.

    USMB:


    • The left will fawn and clean themselves up and claim that Mr. Obama made the GOP look like idiots. No proof will be offered.
    • The middle: Will whine.
    • The Right: Will continue to complain that the GOP are spineless lemur monkeys, unable to make a rational, solid argument in favor of the American People.

    Me:


    • I will be sitting back and laughing at it all.

    Enjoy the theatrics.

    It is a lot of Obama talking, over long set ups, over long replies, and over long preening with out saying much of anything meaningful.

    If it takes too long to get to the point most people won't get the point.

    This is what all politicians do.
    The interests of the American people would be best served if the Federal government got OUT of the healthcare business, including thier Medicare and Medicaid scams.

    These guys got to the point and it is hard not to agree , If your deductible is to low ,you can afford coverage if it is to high you cant afford treatment, a classic catch 22.
    If you get it just right, you will find out you have a preexisting condition which means you cant change policies or jobs .

    It would be nice to have those things fixed .

    The classic tool of the con being employed once again.

    Obama: The head con man.
    Democrats: The enablers.
    Republicans: The fall guys
    America: The duped.

    May disagree with the details, but I agree: Everything about this was decided before hand. Nothing will actually change.

    Obama already called out Cantor for bringing props. Cantor is all ready for some campaigning today with the cameras rolling.

    I don't care if they end up in shouting matches, just don't be so dishonest saying you're coming to participate when you really just want yet another obstructionist, teabag Obama down every chance you get type moment.

    He's doing well, congress is not.
