    The "Sage of LA" is spot on. It's a lot easier to ridicule and do some armchair quarterbacking than it is to actually have to make the tough calls.

    That was a short article. Not much to see here.

    I can not believe Obama was able to get any healthcare bill through. Will go down as one of the greatest Presidential achievements.

    Fun things like tax cuts are easy to build support for. Telling folks medical treatments are getting more expensive at a rate greater than income is growing and we must do something about it or face pay or die days, that is tough for some reason.

    Dipshit. Obama did not get any health care bill through. That was Reid and Pelosi, mainly Pelosi. Tax cuts are hardly fun things. There has been a huge battle over them, in case you've been asleep for the last year.
    Obamacare will not fix any problem with rising costs. It will increase costs, not decrease them. Or have you been asleep for the last 12 months? Obamacare is responsible for the rout of the Dems in '10. It will be for their defeat in '12 as well.

    Sure it is. House leadership owes some apologies to the president as well.

    The clowns.

    The healthcare bill did NOT get put through easily...he and pelosi had to bribe people to vote for it! Remember Stupak?? Obama told him if he voted for it he would take out the abortion crap...Stupak then voted for it, and obama never removed it like he promised! ANOTHER PROMISE BROKEN just to get what he wanted!

    ......Especially when you consider what was handed-off to him.

    Yep. Campaigning for POTUS is a whole lot easier than being POTUS.

    Barry found that out in one big hurry.

    You mean Pelosi, for losing the '10 election so badly, right?
    Or do you mean Pelosi etc for not passing a budget and making this an ugly fight now?
    I agree, the Democratic leadiership are a bunch of clowns. Thank G-d the GOP won and we have some responsible leadership.
