I have no doubt the insurance companies, in collusion with the hospitals, are screwing Americans like never before.
But I must admit it is fun to watch the Democrats screwing each other.

Re: Eunuch-like Obama abandons public option, incites furor of far-left Democrat Part

This is so typical of the Democrats. When the Republicans control Congress and have a President in the chair, they pass any old diabolical shit easily - usually helped by some Democrats who are anxious to "work with the President" and "be bi-partisan" (not that the Pres gives a shite who votes for it as long as he gets the numbers).

Democrats get Congress and have a President in the chair, all they do is fight among themselves about what it means to be a peach and the importance of being earnest, they agree on nothing, and fuck all ever gets done.

It's pathetic.

Re: Eunuch-like Obama abandons public option, incites furor of far-left Democrat Part

It's about time. This has been in the making since at least August. I sure am glad I'm not Joe Lieberman right now, though.

And wow, the Democrats really blew this one.

Incidentally, there's some rumbling on the left now indicating that some of them might not vote for it. No matter what side you're on this whole thing has been a ton of fun to watch, minus the stress and chaos this has been for just about everyone with a stake in it. Pretty much every week something happens that makes this situation even more clownish.

Considering that this chump Lieberman would have been VP, it almost....*almost*....makes me glad the US Supreme Court appointed Bush for the vacant post.

Give the guy some credit. He's got some serious balls to stand up to the entire party like that.

I'd give him credit if there were any logic to his position but there isn't - he's now threatening to filibuster suggestions that he was on record as supporting as long ago as 9 years ago and as recently as 3 months ago.

He's already as good as admitted that at least some of his motivation is coming from getting some revenge on the liberal elements in the Democratic party who have given him a hard time for the last several years, forced him to stand in Connecticut as an independent, etc. The guy is on a huge ego trip as "the 60th vote" and I don't respect that at all, because he's playing with peoples' lives.

Re: Eunuch-like Obama abandons public option, incites furor of far-left Democrat Part

This bill needs to be killed.

Democrats/Republicans, both utterly useless, nothing more than two sides of the same coin. Same bullshit every year, no matter who's in charge. Did people really think they were going to get "Change" when they voted for Obama? The idealistic young people who voted for him didn't know any better. This will be their first life lesson in US politics: they are all the same, and they are not looking out for you but for themselves.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

There's nothing you can do if Congress is against you. And yeah, you can say it's his responsibility to change their minds, if they've got certain interest groups (i.e. insurance companies and wealthy constituents) in mind, convincing them is impossible.

Re: Eunuch-like Obama abandons public option, incites furor of far-left Democrat Part

Obama has become a shadow of the man who campaigned vigorously for 19-months. One can only imagine the profound frustration on the part of leftist ideologues worldwide. According to a recent poll, Bush's approval ratings have increased while Obama's have decreased -- nearly 45% of Americans are nostalgic of the Bush era. Moreover, Sarah Palin is only polling a percentage point or two behind Obama.

Obama supporters are not exactly rocket scientists.

She's got her issues and may not be the smartest cookie around, but for many people her beliefs are spot on. Considering the big-government agenda coming out of DC, her small-government ideology is a natural antidote to Obama. I'm by no means a huge fan and don't agree with her on a number of issues (primarily social), but considering the extreme left-wing nature of the "change" Obama and the progressives have been offering up, I'd take her in a heartbeat right now.

I find Obama and his achievements (even pre-Presidency).. and his vocabulary and lack of hokey-town accent to be more respectable.
