    Obama's goal from the beginning is to have healthcare reform that would have bipartisan support.
    The Republicans have shown no sign to budge off the no public option.
    Obama anxious to have collaboration has hinted at dropping the public option.
    The Democrats and many pundits feel he is compromising too early.

    He is showing good faith but it not being reciprocated by the opposition.

    That's called "lag time". They want to see if the offer is genuine or just another political ploy.

    There has been plenty of name calling on both sides. It does not help. Obama is not calling anyone a Nazi.

    i don't get why he has to change everything. if you get sick, take NyQuil. that fixes everything! then we won't need health care. except for the people who drink too much NyQuil. They'll need help

    Perhaps he should put a muzzle on his Speaker of the House, if he's serious about working together?

    She's a loose cannon.
