    Obama seems to have a problem with following through on anything he says. Which is good and bad. Good that bad policies are not being passed due to his lack of follow through and Bad because America really needs someone to take positive action instead of a President that doesn't really make any changes.

    Looks like Obama and Pelosi are at odds over several issues. One being the promise to televise the healthcare deliberations, another that he favors the Senate bill, and Obama's promise to not raise taxes on the middle class.

    obama LIED about not raising taxes on the middle class, as well as so many other things

    like closing gitmo, ending rendition, ending detention, ending don't ask don't tell, reversing the patriot act, cutting the deficit in half, never imposing coverage mandates on individuals, never taxing med benefits, putting legislation online, not hiring lobbyists...

    LOL!

    not hiring lobbyists!

    NEVER has a united states white house ever been so OWNED by k street

    from phrma to big insurance, autos, banks, wall street, big labor...

    everyone but the taxpayers, the states, the investors

    the bailouts, astronomical sums

    the bonuses, obscene

    to the richest people on earth who screwed the whole thing up in the first place

    and only because they're still rich enough to BUY em, to GREASE all these planet-sized perks for themselves

    with no accountability---the bankers refuse to lend, the too bigs continue to thumb their noses by bestowing beastly bonuses, the stimulus squandered hundreds of B's obviously horribly, foolishly, politically, with ridiculous results

    almost every blue governor brays louder each day over the impossible mandates imposed on his or her already broken-down budget by this massive expansion of medicaid, utterly unfunded

    his problem is his campaign was one thing

    governing is something totally else

    it requires leadership, which needs to inspire confidence, which must have a vision

    he keeps making everything up as he goes along, he deals with HUGE questions as if they were small concerns to get him thru the week

    oh well

    it looks like we're going to survive as a nation

    that will spell the end of barack obama

    Hell, that'd be nice for a change, but... LOL... don't hold your breath... hold your ankles.

    We wouldn't have gotten this far down the sewer had the press done it's job in the first place... during the last elections. They send a hoard of reporters to investigate Palin... which is perfectly fine... and ripped her for a couple comments and "inexperience"... while giving Obi a pass on his stream of asinine comments, his divorcing himself from his radical/poisonous friends and acquaintances, playing dumb to his lack of experience in the real world, and then they actually embraced his childish world view.

    America's chickens... are coming home to roost!... indeed they are.

    These folks and their propagandists are experts at shielding us from the process of making sausage, and then stick it to us where the sun don't shine.

    For those with experience blocking sausage... should we inhale or exhale at the moment of penetration?

    I'm not sure what they would televise, a handful of congressional staffers and lawyers typing and retyping new drafts.

    I'm pretty sure I've watched more c-span than most people on this board. Robotic cameras, no editing -- it's the closest thing to totally completely coverage. I stream committee hearings at work.

    My comments were more amusement at the image of Tea Party folks trying to follow a C-span broadcast. No music. No graphics. No commentator to tell them what to think... They'd have to listen, and think for themselves...
    What "comments"? The "invisible ink" comments? Sorry; doesn't square.

    This post is obviously from a poster that only gets his news in 20 second sound bites..has no idea except for what Madcow tells him about the TEA party

    A proclaimed "moderate" that doesn't get what T.E.A. stands for..

    OR that it is a bipartisan organization...

    I AM a member of the Tea Party Patriots and I'll compare my I.Q. with about 98% of you! And my knowledge of the Constitution with anyone.

    It is YOU sir who displays ignorance!
