    Not even close to what he is saying. If he meant that he would say that. He said people who misrepresent the plan like the "deathers" will be called out and told how and why they are wrong. Just like how others are calling you out here. It's not a violation of your freedom of speech for calling you out for making a stupid statement

    There's a difference between voicing opposition and shouting everyone down without letting anyone speak. In your mind those shouting people down should be tried for high treason for violating the 1st amendment of others

    Re: Presidential Address

    deadest room in decades

    you've never seen the party in power offer less support to its leader in such a setting

    it's not cuz they're against him, it's cuz they're totally dispirited

    he needs to provide answers and he's still saying the exact same stuff which got his party exactly where it is

    the room actually laughed at him, even his own side, when he said---let's not kid ourselves, there are still signifiicant details to work out

    he spent 20 minutes talking about his 3 goals

    i continue to BELIEVE!

    i continue to BE-LIEVE!

    that's real nice, mr president, but whatcha gonna DO

    spent less than 5 minutes saying how'd he pay for it

    we all know his goals, nobody cares about his goals, none of you is interested anymore in goals, all of us at this point want answers

    he spent seconds talking about how he'd pay

    and he was BEGGING seniors---you gotta BE-LIEVE me, i'm not gonna make cuts

    it's gonna be savings

    and with those savings we're gonna pay for...

    it's increased efficiency, better care for less money

    begging

    you saw it, folks, no politics, here---he went MINUTES at a time repeatedly in a joint assemblage that was absolutely SILENT

    he knew it, no doubt

    he knew---damn, i have really lost this room

    then---10 minutes at the end about a "death letter" he was sent by saint teddy

    oh, brother

    all the hi falutin poetry of liberalism, which, y'know, that's fine, good for him

    but it's not HELPFUL

    and so cheap and tawdry---10 minutes of teddy

    he really looks weak and desperate

    a super clear statement of liberalism, well articulated, full and long

    he's under great pressure from his left

    "the appropriate size and role of our govt"

    "that's always been the history of our progress"

    he got very political, quite often

    he's tired of the lies and misrepresentations

    by talk show hosts and even some prominent politicians

    he's gonna call em out

    death panels

    he said THIS, get THIS---america has THIRTY MILLION CITIZENS who are not insured

    !!!

    what happened to the 47 mil

    why the insisted use of "citizens"

    wow

    all those lies and misrepresentations

    like illegals, he says

    i just don't think you're gonna get a lotta credibility outta this

    too many people (in that room) are too smart

    30 MILLION CITIZENS---i was stunned, and i don't surprise easy

    the first time he said "lies," he paused waiting for BOO's from his side

    SILENCE!

    i was shocked

    he followed up with a follow up and his party got it, rose loud and roaring

    for less than 20 seconds

    the fewest applause interruptions i've ever seen

    the least spirited

    1. he had no answers

    2. his party barely supports him

    3. his poetry is insulting at this point

    4. his political attacks are too

    5. his begging is unseemly

    6. you're going to be hearing on at least a half dozen counts that HE's the one who's misrepresenting (like illegals)

    7. he has no explanation how he's gonna pay, none

    8. he's still not even leading, he's all over the place

    9. he offered tort reform (!!!!!), wow, that was a biggie, and a (mild) surprise---no one believes him, folks, as you know

    when it comes to good ol barry obama and tort reform---puhleez

    10. he knows himself he's outta moves

    that's what the room felt like

    republicans just sitting there, shaking their heads

    dems desperate for a spark

    those are just the biggest points, i have lots more, but enough for now

    peace, everyone
