    The right is waving this memo, sourced to anonymous person and claim that this not only proves Obama and the Democrats are lying, but also that the White House may have broken more than just campaign promises with these dealings.

    The left is denying that any of these things happen.

    What do you think?

    I think it's bad. I don't like it. Firedog Lake found it, so it isn't the righties that are pushing it.

    I don't like Rahm Emmanuel.

    I'l wait on this one, though it's not far fetched nor would it be surprising. However the timing it too coincidental. I'd like to see what the White House counters with and if the blogs come up with more information, until then though it is an interesting find.

    That is patently untrue, it's the left that is pissed. The right is fine with it because it leads to a dilution or total deletion of the public option.

    Both parties lied about it. They did not withhold information about the deal, they actively lied to the public in agreement with each other, and both parties, after all, have to agree to lie before one goes forward in the lie about the deal.

    Who's at fault there?

    I think we're talking branches of Government here rather than parties. The WH and the right side of the aisle in congress were ok with it, the left side of congress is not, specifically the House. The Senate......wtf knows? They are on their own side......assholes.

    They all do. What we need is a President that provides transparency to the people.
