Aren't the politicians watching the polls? - 0 views

    Healthcare: At The Best 50% Approval, Now 38%
    Nothing means more to politicians than the polls. Polls are the lifeblood that let them know what they should be for, what they should be against and what they should stay away from. If some action is in the best interest of national security, but the polls say that public opinion is against it, most, not all, politicians will be swayed. This, despite the fact that popular opinion is not a reliable gauge of right and wrong, particularly when it comes down to facts that only politicians may be privy to...

Keeping you in the Know: Senate Votes To Debate Health Care - 0 views

  •  
    To the GOP everything can be solved by lower taxes and more corporate incentives. And yes, the upper middle class and the elite wealthy all benefit nicely… but it DOES NOT TRICKLE DOWN! The poor are still getting poorer, the lower middle class is still struggling along with the poor to hold jobs and keep health insurance.

Number 9, number 9, number 9, number 9, number 9 - 0 views

    President Obama is off on his trip to the Far East, ready to come home to deal with the many items piling up on his plate: healthcare, the economy, Thanksgiving, Democrat fundraising, the environment, early Christmas shopping, you name it. Busy, busy schedule. Somewhere in all of that he will fit in his ninth meeting with his war council on the troop decision in Afghanistan. To date he has spent a good 20-30 hours with them. That 20-30 hours has been spread over many months (close to 11 in office to date), leading one to believe that this decision is not his number one priority...

The Healthcare Public Option And Other Short Stories - 0 views

    A Rose By Any Other Name Or Speak No Evil, See No Evil, Hear No Evil

    Things have been a little quiet on the healthcare debate front over the past day or two, but the 800 pound gorilla is still in the room and is still very much alive and well. During this short lull I wanted to take a look at the critical public option piece for the program, and the fact that it is apparently losing its luster with many on the near left as a it remains a huge impediment to any legislation having a chance of being passed. And not getting something passed will doom the democrats in mid-term elections...

Time and place - the coming-of-age story of Rep. Joe Wilson in today's world - 0 views

  •  
    It's a coming-of-age story, you see. It's about a representative who has come of age from the voting booths of a town to accept the responsibilities of performing rousing debates on the floors of Congress with the interest of a constituency in mind while adhering to house rules. Don't fear, I'm not describing a remake of the "Cider House Rules" replacing the doctor with a Congressional representative. No, I'm describing the latest shock-and-awe disorderly behavior by a representative of a member of the 111th Congress. Enter Joe Wilson, a Congressional representative from South Carolina. In the aftermath of inappropriate timing, will the enforcement of ethical standards be abdicated in the US while many see that taking precautions in keeping the public trust in Congress is still the responsibility of everyone sitting in that room?

Barack Chamberlain: Healthcare Is Not at Hand - 0 views

  •  
    Joe Wilson called Obama a liar and a senior White House advisor called Wilson, "A pimple on the ass of progress." Obama waves a useless piece of paper in the wind and the Republicans become, well, carbuncles on the ass of progress.

Finally, Some Life on the Floor of Congress - 0 views

  •  
    Wilson apologized to Obama's brain, Rahm Emmanuel, which is almost as bad as facing the wrath of the Twinkie-in-Chief, but the apology was a non-apology. Wilson said, in essence, "I'm sorry I called that black fella a liar in front of God and everybody, but I swear on my 240,000 healthcare lobby dollars that he IS a liar...and a socialist, grandma killer to boot!"
