That was the O's comment in a meeting of balking Dems. Why the desperation?
I am following this story closely because I think these folks are freaking insane. They are in over their heads with no clue of what they are doing, no clue about what hospitals and my Doc friends do or how they do it to produce the treatment that the entire world envies. Some of the Dems seem to know it. And the rush makes no sense at all. Dems baffled by President's stance.
I think I said it yesterday: This is getting stranger and stranger.
Driving that train, high on cocaine,
Casey Jones is ready, watch your speed.
Trouble ahead, trouble behind,
And you know that notion just crossed my mind.
Says Powerline's Paul:
It is shocking that Obama would attempt to overhaul our health care system -- this vast and critical portion of our economy -- on such a short timetable and in such a haphazard fashion. The public senses the absurdity of his approach. It expects Obama to act like the careful, studious leader it voted for.
I trust my doctors. I do not trust the wisdom of my politicians. I want the pols kept away from my Docs: the same distance as from my pastors. I do not want Dear Leader deciding whether Gramps lives or dies. I will be Gramps, someday - God willing.
I will give the last word for today to NRO:
Obviously the Obamacare proposal is an abomination and Congress needs to throw it out and start from scratch. But whatever they come up with, the lesson for immigration is unchanged — in an era when we have massive transfers of taxpayer funds to the poor, whether through Medicaid or food stamps or public-education funding or whatever, you just can't keep importing more and more poor people. The libertarians will say the answer is to abolish all of these taxpayer-funded programs; but even if that's true, until we do abolish them, ongoing mass immigration is simply unjustifiable.
I couldn't listen to the Obamessiah's plea to the American people tonight because I didn't want to listen to the BS I knew would be coming out of his mouth. All it would have done is make me angry....
