    8 promises about 7% of our economy = 1 hour on CSPAN in more than a half year.

    Is this the Liberal definition of Hope, Change and Unity? Or a reflection of the content of their deliberations?

    Somehow I think this has a tie to why Obama is so forthcoming about the screwup on the airline bomber. You just don't see politicians like that saying "The buck stops here". Notice how the press glombed onto that and it has dominated the news? Let's do a little diversion from the healthcare debocale.

    Not always. Sometimes they are a diversionary tactic to keep people from examining a more important issue.

    This attempted terrorist attack certainly drew attention away from the healthcare socialization efforts.

    Either that or he's blaming someone else? Who might that be?

    "They said it would be transparent. Why isn't it?" said Sestak, a Delaware County Democrat, in a meeting with Tribune-Review editors and reporters. "At times, I find the caucus is a real disappointment. We aren't transparent, not just to the public but at times to the members."

    ...

    Sestak said political deals that Democratic Sen. Ben Nelson of Nebraska and others cut in closing the health care bill were a disgrace: "To think that you would hold out to close a deal for a special interest is absolutely wrong."

    I'm blaming those that want attention diverted from the HCB. Don't get me wrong. I'm not blaming them for the attack. I'm blaming them for keeping the discussion about it going. I'm blaming them for keeping the debate about the HCB among themselves instead of making it transparent. And that's just for the politicians. I also blame the media for sensationalizing one thing while ignoring something else.
