    It's not that he's spineless. He's a block head. He held up Health Care for a stupid reason and then shut up when he got a worthless Executive Order when all along his desires, to prohibit federal funding of abortions, was already law.

    Good riddance to him! Hopefully, the Dem who replaces him will not be so rabbidly anti-choice.

    Yes, it appears that Bart Stupak noticed the same thing.

    We haven't seen anything yet. As soon as the public sees how much the "free" health insurance will cost them and the people already insured see how much their premiums increase, they will demand its repeal.

    Re: Rep. Bart Stupak to retire, putting seat in play

    and THAT's the point

    what is NEXT for this white house?

    i mean, AFTER moby dick has finally been harpooned

    of course, ahab-obama is INTENT on continuing his coast-to-coast campaign now to SELL americans on his moby, make everyone come to LOVE THE WHALE

    but, beyond that, y'know, what's THIS white house to do, y'know, NOW?

    the bank tax, the debt commission, the spending freeze (his top priorities in his state of the union already forgotten)?

    the don't ask don't tell (another sotu centerpiece)?

    the wall street reform stalled in dead dodd's banking?

    when's the PIVOT to education gonna come?

    what's it gonna look like?

    when's he gonna decide?

    why does he dither?

    is it cuz he spends too much time in IOWA, the NEW HAMPSHIRE media market and talking to DORIS for 17:00 in CHARLOTTE?

    LOL!

    when's the OFFSHORE DRILLING gonna start?

    before or after the meeting with the leaders of iran, sans preconditions?

    before or after the prosecution of the cia?

    before or after the closure of gitmo?

    the point is---this leadership aint-a-gonna be wagged by no dogs nor no progro's...

    she aint-a-gonna be wagged at all

    you are looking at one STUCK party, folks---the paralysis of progressivism

    he will never get his membership to follow him to within a hundred yards of the EDGE of another cliff, let alone over one

    he got his moby and it's really gonna cost em

    he'll get nothing else

    initiative has potential of realization in this political climate ONLY that meets the APPROVAL (literally) of JOHN MCCAIN (spelled c-y-a)

    THAT'S the lay of united states land AFTER health care

    ask senators nelson, landrieu, conrad, byrd, brown...

    live it, love it, it's yours

    see you in november

    in harrisburg, lansing, madison, springfield, sacto, des moines, nashville...

    in a dozen senate seats across the country, including reid's, biden's, obama's and hillary's

    heck, we'll talk in the upper peninsula

    LOL!

    The Repubs have NEVER had any interest in health care reform. Ever. And they obviously didn't this time either.

    I see many people who are ecstatic about the Health Care law. We have seen at least one member of our forum whose son will be able to get health care under her family's plan because of this law.

    To shout those right wing lies simply doesn't reflect Americans' true reaction to this.

    And FYI, this will never be repealed or defunded. As word starts to spread about how this is helping people it will be the Republicans who will be looking at their own Waterloo. Watch and learn.

    I wonder what job he's getting in the Obama administration.

    YOU CAN'T EXPAND MEDICARE AND MEDICAID BY 12 MILLION WHILE SIMULTANEOUSLY CUTTING THEIR ALREADY OVERSTRAINED BUDGETS BY HALF A TRIL

    obama may not understand this truth as obvious as gravity

    but america gets it

    in the gut

    MOM AND DAD HAVE BECOME SEVERELY DEPENDENT ON THE SOLVENCY AND VIABILITY OF THESE PROGRAMS THEY'VE BEEN FORCED TO PAY INTO ALL THEIR LIVES

    you need to look at the polls for statehouses in pennsylvania, michigan, wisconsin, california...

    these are NOT red states, tho they are crucially key

    and we're witnessing mass swings of 20, even 30 points

    just like massachusetts, jersey and the old dominion

    THERE'S NO ROOM IN THE PARTY OF PELOSI FOR PRO LIFE, demonstrably

    oh well

    party on, progressives

    you know what you're doing

    And then issue subpoenas, warrants, and charges. Anything and everything unethical or illegal should be held to full account, and the brunt of law should be bashed on the head of these crooks, make it hurt so bad the next crook in line will be too damn afraid to ever screw with their constituents again.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
