    Overall a solid speech - strong at the start and the conclusion. The middle part was overly long, a bit rambling, and at times, overtly partisan.

    Could very well see a short term bump in support for healthcare, followed by a tough battle from there.

    And some challenging news is to face this White House soon...

    What did you think of Charles Boustany's reply? Obviously Charlie didn't read Obama's speech first.
    Boustany fell victim to a con artist when he tried to purchase the title of Lord in the United Kingdom. LOL

    We're going to make private insurance much more expensive, we're going to put the gubbamint in competition with private insurance, we're going to cover everybody, but it's going to drive down costs.

    Do you have to stand on your head for this to make any sense?

    You mean like when he peddled the stale old lame-assed crap about blaming Iraq, Afghanistan and the ubiquitous "tax cuts for the rich" for costing us money that could've been better spent on a fascistic takeover of the entire medical care industry??

    Glad I was busy fishing.

    Stand on your head, drop acid, eat some pain killers and drink several banana daiquiris, and it might make some sense.

    But by then, so might Joe "Fredo" Biden. :lol:

    The best the Repubs could do was a friggin' Birther! :lol::lol::lol:



    Note the update. Convenient, eh?


    If Dems can be held accountable for things they've done in the past even if they publicly disavow them, then so can this guy.

    This was the sad part....did the RNC set him up to fail on purpose? It was like listening to a guy trying to talk bad about a speech he thinks he heard? WTF? First Piyush fails and now THIS idiot?

    The GOP central committe is setting up the far right to take the hit, then the central nominees will work with the Dems for reform. The far right wing just go banished from influence in the GOP.
