    He was trying to! That was the whole point of the investigation which compelled Libby to testify before a Grand Jury in the first place. But Libby lied his ass off and obstructed the investigation! Where have you been?

    Mostly because 95% of what they think they did 'good' on has already been discredited.

    fyi

    jack murtha, perhaps the most personally corrupt member of congress, if not rangel, since rostenkowski's departure, said yesterday---no health care this year, gonna have to wait til 2010

    very meaningful, considering the spokesman

    a lot like durbin's announcement last week on john king's cnn that he was "open" to "cutting" the "public option"

    the public option is therefore DEAD

    durbin is WHIP

    durbin, senior senator from chicago, is personally close to the prez

    durbin saying is the white house signaling

    that's how the game's played

    tea leaves, baby

    Still a Young Money Millionaire and the world hasn't exploded. Guess the prayers of Sarah Palin's witch doctor didn't work.

    Re: Cheney Uncloaks His Frustration With Bush

    obama in grand junction, colorado, his 3rd town hall since this townhall phenom first began, his first being in portsmouth, NH, and his second just yesterday in belgrade, montana, home of gatekeeper max baucus

    the 3 townhalls have been virtually IDENTICAL, the same half hour stump speech following the same personal story of some sad local with health care coverage issues, really big personal tragedies centering on lack of coverage, horrendous personal suffering detailed, heart wrenching

    those problems the prez points up are very, very palpable, by the way, poignant, important

    he's right

    but the president's productions are always so identical, his audiences so fawning, they really do resemble michael jackson's funeral

    except each time the prez makes tiny tweaks

    in belgrade, for instance, his townhall #2, he removed the part about AARP endorsing his plan

    anyway

    today's tweak is QUITE REVEALING

    asked by a critical young man (whom obama praised, rather condescendingly, i thought, for having the chutzpah to stand up to the potus)---how can you keep telling us that a private entity can compete with govt backed insurance?

    obama's answer spoke TONS

    he said, literally---"public option, if we have it or if we don't..."

    "the public option is only a small sliver of our health care reform, we are talking about much more than just that..."

    the point---public option is dead

    read between the lines folks

    there's NO NEWS here, senator durbin made it clear as clean glass last sunday on cnn's john king

    look at the polls is another way of seeing it

    the prez is just kinda hammering home a point

    the PUBLIC OPTION IS DEAD

    sorry

    or congrats

    depending on which side you're on, i spose

    and, yes, even without a public option, congressman murtha declared that health care in whatever form won't be done this year, gotta wait til next

    you all know who murtha is, his ROLE in the house

    Has it really? We are still dealing with it, it's a current event for the most part. At the moment most people do not believe that they have experienced a good administration those eight years, but it is far too early to call just yet.

    Do you not like paragraphs or something? Or are you pausing after every sentence for dramatic effect?

    Let's try to string some sentences together next time, eh? No more of these sentence fragments, okay?

    That's just the man's style... you know, his trademark. He isn't going to change for you or anyone.

    The man is intelligent and makes good, fact based arguments, so you're just going to have to get used to it. Or you could of course, use it as an excuse to ignore his posts so you don't have to address them.
