    I don't think this will have a real impact on his poll rating, but might help him with congress.

    He was quite hard on them, and I think that might backfire when he needs votes.

    probably, but at least he isn't a butt-kissing moderate.

    Nope, I listen to the talking heads in order to understand different viewpoints. This is why CSPAN is boring, because you don't the get polarizations of opinion.

    This is also why I watch CNN, because they have no opinion, they just throw these liberal and conservative pundits out there and say "what the hell do you think about that?" Its fun.

    He really just rallied the Democrats, and shunned the Republicans. Between calling them liars, and going on about what they clearly don't like...he's hurting himself in that respect.

    Redress is going to get on your ass for playing the race card.
    I don't like to accuse people of racism and did not do that before but when people pull high treason out of their asses becaue they disagree with with the president over a proposed policy on healthcare what else can we be the excuse. Disagree on the potential costs of the plan, the doability, the question of whether healthcare is a right or privelege but if a so called debater can only come up with "high treason" give me a break !!

    by using the "race card" I did that purposely to fight fire with fire, the outrageous with the outrageous.. extremism vs extremism..
    I do not recall the Viet Cong asking me if I was a natural born or Naturalized American before they shot at me, they just shot at all of us f107HyperSabr

    Quite proud to say, that he has finally put his foot down on an issue. In that respect, he has been much to nice to the Republicans.
