    There was but one way to see what happened yesterday unless comprehension is a challenge or intellectual integrity.

    Obama and his poorly spoken compadres got their collective asses handed to them on a plate. That backfired on the Democrats badly, as the post-summit polls are showing clearly.

    It was funny how Obama kept claiming the Republicans were just talking in talking points, while it was plainly Obama who had only talking points to offer and the Republicans had very specific points on specific issues within the bill.

    Now it's time for reconciliation, of which there are dozens of quotes from these very Democrats floating around the web of when they spoke angrily against it a few years ago.

    Of course you saw it that way. I'm sure you saw Obama get his ass handed to him the last time he took republican questions.

    And reconciliation? LOL, I hope they ram "medicare for all" through reconciliation, just to piss off guys like you.

    Let me guess what happened. The republicans came in prepared this time. They all had their talking points ready and they were all in sync and on message.

    Democrats were all over the place and looked foolish.

    Obama played it cool and handled all questions with relative ease.

    How close am I?

    Not close at all.

    The Democrats defended the need for health reform, real similar to debates for Pay-Go where they debated on the merit of fiscal responsibility. Of course, the angle they debated from had little to do with the bill itself, but the sentiment was impressive.

    Obama continually asked the Republicans for input, and continually told them those ideas wouldn't work. When it was requested that they started with the 70% the Republicans and Democrats agreed on and scrap the rest Obama shut them down. When they asked that the parts be removed that were put in to buy the votes of Democrats Obama remarked that it was a good point and moved on to the next guy.

    When they asked how we are going to pay for the 30 million people Obama wants covered under this reform he told them that we have to decide, as a society if this is worth paying for. Forgetting that the money in the private sector is extremely important for our economic recovery. He all but acknowledged that this was going to come with a tax increase.

    Obama came off as an egoist. It seemed that he wanted Republicans to come up with ideas to buy their votes, rather than to make it a bill worth voting for. I doubt I would ever consider this perspective, if it wasn't so necessary for the bill to be where it is today.

    The Republicans didn't come off on top of that debate. They came off as unheard, which is why it will cost Obama and the Democratic party so dearly.

    Oh, and Obama didn't play much of anything cool. His speaking ability was heavily challenged without a tele-prompter. I seriously didn't expect that amount of stuttering coming from him.

    Old John is up to his usual political trickery, that of bringing up the past since he has never had anything to add to the issues AT HAND.....

    ****** This is WHY the GOP in rerality achieved little by even showing up. Obama knew weeks ago what options existed and he just wanted a photo op.

    Obama handled his talking points with ease, and did not present anything in his plan honestly. He acted like an arrogant bastard.

    Well, that's natural.... for him.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
