    nope. he overplayed his hand. that's why he is leaving his cush position. Obama was the BIG winner. first, he took abortion off the table for the next 6+ years by signing that executive order. the abortion issue is something his administration will not have to contend with
    and even BIGGER, he got healthcare reform passed. republicans cannot rescind it. appears that makes republicans the losers and today's pseudo-onservatives the biggest losers
    LOL!
    the meaning of suckerpunch stupak's swan song is---no more bluedog dems, no room in the PARTY OF PELOSI/OBAMA for LIFE

    a party of extremes
    really, that's what you take from this? then you were asleep the past year while this matter was being poked and prodded and molded into the legislation we would up with
    but, to the point that the blue dog's tail no longer wags the democrat's dog, we agree

    live with it, love it, it's yours
    please send us a postcard from the country to which you are moving ... since that is the only way you will be able to escape enjoying and living with the results, too
    my turn: LOL!

    party on, progressives
    you're not worthy [said in wayne's world voice]

    you know what you're doing
    we did when we went to the ballot box about 17 months ago.

    let me offer this up again, just for good measure
    LOL!
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it
    once you're over the hill you begin to pick up speed

    It'll be interesting to see what cushy diplomatic or government post he gets after the first of the year. Or maybe big pharma will be pushed into hiring him as part of their sweetheart health care reform deal.

    love and admiration have no place in politics

    we attempted to use him

    we knew that he might act rationally

    instead he committed suicide for his leaders, he'll never again hold an elected political position

    congrats on your bill, your progress and the iron discipline you exert over 80% of your mighty and expanding party

    I didn't know who Stupak was until this health care thing.

    LOL.......... After the next election, Republicans can defund it and stop it in it's tracks. After the 2012 election they can and will rescind that POS, and hopefully legislate real health reform, not just a blank check for more government interferance in our lives. You are living in some dream world if you think any bill can’t be rescinded, or killed by lack of funds.

    Has anyone besides me noticed that the public is pissed?
