    The patient is only a nominal consumer. Ultimately, the government is responsible for driving up health care costs. Onerous regulation, not surprisingly, makes providing medicine and health insurance more expensive.

    The only medical services with a rational pricing system are elective procedures. They are lightly regulated, and insurance companies generally don't cover the cost. Accordingly, the prices have fallen as the quality has improved.

    It is indeed a very dumb reason not to vote for him. It's too bad that many Republicans would let their religion cloud their judgment.

    You are totally misreading Palin. She will be a terrible candidate. She doesn't posses intellectual wherewithal to weather the storm. She will be diced by the media and spun in circles by Obama the master-campaigner. If the Palin-lovers are going to insist on pushing the issue, they will just make the primaries that much more of a spectacle. She is the best chance for Obama to remain in office.

    That's not entirely true. Only certain parts of NY 23RD have been represented by Republicans since the Civil War. Moreover, the district as its currently constituted has only existed since 2003.

    She beat Biden in the debate, so she can't be that dumb... mind you... Biden... a Senator since birth isn't a very sharp pencil.

    I say you're misreading Palin as many misread Reagan.
    She's got an avenue to get the message out unfiltered... so time will tell.

    Also, if someone is so ineffectual, they're ignored.
    The press and Lefties are all over her like a pig on ****, they're been out to destroy her... which tells me she's a very serious threat.

    And she is.

    Palin/Keyes 2012

    .

    You (and some others) have mentioned that people misread Reagan. But I don't remember it that way. I do remember people on the right misreading him, but this was way before he secured the nomination. Once he started campaigning the people in the middle, and even the left, loved him.

    Palin is a different situation. She seems to have support on the right (especially social Conservatives) which is the exact opposite of what Regan had. But she seems to have very little support from the center or the left. Again the opposite of Reagan.

    THANK YOU.

    I get so frustrated seeing this thrown around constantly. The district has been changed a multitude of times since the Civil War, with pieces being added and subtracted and a whole new district spawning from it since then. People act like itís the exact same area the entire time. And, on top of that, in some of the places that have splintered off, or in some of the places that have entered onto it, those HAVE had Democrats so the whole notion is idiotic.

    Not to mention the situations between these two are no where the same.

    You didnít have three viable candidates for a decent important portion of the campaign in Mass. You didnít have the national party throwing support behind a candidate that the people in the area didnít want. You didnít have a democrat whose supported by the national committee drop out and endorse the Republican days before the election.

    The situations were similar only in that they both had an election and it was about politics.

    And Dana, I wouldn't mind your prediction coming true. I pray its not Palin as that will garauntee me voting third party. I will not vote for anyone that panders, gives support, or agree's with the idiots that are the birther movement. She lost every ounce of support I had when she did that. Indeed, after being the deciding factor for me voting in 2008 she has done nothing to cause me to look forward to her running in 2012 and routinely did things that have assured she won't get my vote.

    LOL. You are the same one who said that Fred Thompson was going to be the salvation for the Republican Party. Remember? You told us to take it to your bankrupt financial institution.
