Obama hits consistently sour note in 'Bipartisan' healthcare discussion.

The tinny sound of Barrack Obama belittling Senator McCain summed up nicely his maladroit management of his entire administration thus far.
"So I hope that that would be an argument for us to go through this 2,400-page document, remove all the special deals for the special interests and favored few, and treat all Americans the same under provisions of the law so that they will know that geography does not dictate what kind of health care they would receive. I thank you, Mr. President." offered Mr. McCain.

"Let me just make this point, John, because we're not campaigning anymore -- the election's over." countered the President.

"Well, I -- I'm reminded of that every day."

"Well, I -- yes. So, the -- we can spend the remainder of the time with our respective talking points, going back and forth. We were supposed to be talking about insurance."

What a twit.

Didn't his own party heads Pelosi and Reid start off the proceedings with the typical Democrat play for sympathy with stories of 'real' Americans suffering because the 'law makers' had yet to make enough laws? (Ans: Yes). The fact is if you stood by while that was going on you have no reason to complain about McCain pointing out some of the problems in the bill, however you may view his motives.

The fact is that it is a good idea for all Americans to be treated equally before the law, and that tax exemptions for union members and members of Congress, along with the entire state of Nebraska just doesn't play here. The type of backroom deals the Dems worked out strike all Americans as being ...un-american. The president called for this discussion, so he is going to have to prepare himself for hearing what the other side has to say about the bill. It should be fine for someone like John McCain to point out those obvious deal killers with the American people. Point of fact is those were political blunders of the Democrats who formed this monstrosity, and there is no getting away from that fact.


  1. The Dems have been insisting for so long that the Republicans have nothing to offer regarding health reform that they must have convinced themselves -- and so apparently didn't think there was any real need to come prepared for todays exchange.

    Twit -- lovely, the perfect word.

    Pundit & Pundette like your words, too -- they've linked your post again. :)

  2. Well, the whole maneuver is a political ploy to set the stage for something they said they wouldn't do. All the duplicity with these guys - it's a constant effort to mislead, in both their intention in what they are doing, the principles behind it and their overall goals for the country. "I am pretty certain I am not wrong" doesn't cut it for me. It's nothing personal, I am just not willing to trust on this guys certainties.

    The Jill that signed up as a "follower" of my blog is the Jill from Pundit and Pundette. In fact, I believe she is Pundette! Wow. And she seems to have been kind enough to put this little bumpkin blog on the reliever rotation. Pretty cool. So I put her on my Fun Reads list, what Robert Stacy McCain would call 'linky love".

    She's a good one.
