    If a Republican falls for this, they're even dumber than I give them credit for!
    You are right about one thing and that is partisan politics. People that wanted him to drill are now bitching and complaining that he is doing it. Apparently the man can't win.

    The insurance mandate was a compromise in exhange for removing the public option. The Republicans and Bluedogs wouldn't even come to the table until the compromise was put in.

    Re: Obama to Unveil Offshore Oil Drilling Plans

    insurance mandate?

    LOL!

    obama's FOUR republican ideas he FLOATED for a DAY in early march:

    1. end cornhusker kickback for stiffneck nelson

    2. end gatoraid exemption for brother bill

    3. incorporate tom coburn's undercover efforts to expose medicare fraud from the inside

    and (my favorite)

    4. FIFTY MILLION DOLLARS CASH (LOLOLOL!) to STUDY tort reform at the state level

    Obama cites GOP ideas as he preps health care plan - Yahoo! News

    note: #'s 3 and 4 never became part of the package

    Because either you aren't paying attention, or you're a mindless lemming.

    Sorry, I know you thought for a moment Obama was doing what is right instead of playing politics with our economy:

    “It appears the Northern Atlantic and entire Pacific Coast will now be under a de facto ban” for drilling, said Patrick Creighton, a spokesman for the Institute for Energy Research.

    Not all of these have to do with health care but the ones that do are just to name a few.

    Senate Republicans Offer More Amendments - Prescriptions Blog - NYTimes.com

    Also, Conservative Democrat Bart Stupak made sure Pres. Obama signed an executive order that would eliminate any public funding for abortion. That sounds like something the Republicans would be in favor of. Just because they didn't vote for it doesn't mean that the legislation leaned more towards their direction.

    Why? He's a smart pragmatic leader. If someone has a safe, low-impact way to do it, then why not?

    He still is pushing to destroy the economy with his his climate change and energy bill, to fight problems that does not exist.
    Oh, that's right, you're drinking the dark red Kool-aide which renders all honest reasoning and critical thinking skills useless...

    This is confusing at best, and makes me wonder what is really going on or is this a misdirection play to once again try to draw attention away from the PHONY Health Plan and all the taxes coming from it.
    I'm sure Glenn Beck will be breaking out the chalk board a 5pm... He'll pull the theory out of his ass and you far-righties can eat it up.

    every one of those amendments was voted down

    they were attempts by the gop to force the party in power to make a change to the reconciliation to force it back into pelosi's place

    indeed, republicans succeeded in making dems endorse SEX PERFORMANCE DRUGS FOR SEX OFFENDERS

    indeed, the party that EXEMPTS seiu's from cadillacs REFUSED to offer the same SET ASIDE for warriors wounded in OBAMA'S WAR who might have to buy a prosthetic, subject to increased taxation under obamacare

    and you cite SUCKERPUNCH STUPAK?!

    and his ANEMIC executive order?!

    LOL!

    LOLOL!

    pathetic
