i got news for some of you
it's the DEMOCRATS who are gonna say NO to president pie-in-the-face for the rest of his term
you really think he's gonna get these people to follow him over another cliff
after all he's put them thru
you've forgotten the town halls, these poor partisans got ripped apart in public
the unmistakable meanings of virginia and massachusetts and new jersey
the retirements of bayh and conrad
the poll numbers so abysmal in the house, senate, gubs, assemblies...
things like---mr corbett leads all dems IN PENNSYVLANIA (!!!) by---are you sitting---margins like TWENTY PLUS points
that's revolutionary, folks
do you KNOW pennsylvania?
how can you be so silly not to see things as HUGE as republicans leading in races for HARRISBURG and LANSING by TWENTY PLUS POINTS
you really think he's gonna get these folks (in the SENATE---LOL!) to go along with CAP AND TRADE?!
that's ridiculous, you absolutely do not know these people
you really need to LISTEN more, ARGUE less
cuz you're missing so much of the BIG STUFF
what, MOVING KSM TO MANHATTAN AGAIN?
they're gonna follow him on that?
what, something in the area of education?
if it's left of mike ross---forget about it
if it's left of john mccain---forget about it
that's across the board, sorry
WHAT'S HIS FOREIGN POLICY?
WHAT'S HIS POLICY PERTAINING TO IRAN?
can you answer a direct question?
it's ok, HE CAN'T
he has NO foreign policy beyond his ESCALATION in afghanistan
climate accords, sanctions, trade with china, no nukes...
what happened to the REACHOUT
his positions concerning TERRORISM are more convoluted than a pretzel
a pusillanimous pretzel
he's gonna try these here and those there, until he changes his mind, he's gonna whisk off em off to miranda land but they're sure to be executed, don't you worry about that...
i'm so sorry to tell you, but he has SHOT HIS WAD
he's got his LEGACY, it better WORK, cuz he's gonna have to LIVE with it
and NOTHING ELSE
HE WILL NEVER GET HIS PARTY TO FOLLOW HIM ON ANYTHING OF REAL SIGNIFICANCE UNLESS IT IS SOMETHING JOHN MCCAIN COULD SUPPORT
that's the lay of the land, folks
and i think YOU TOO have forgotten about THE ECONOMY
HE SURE HAS
fix this economy, president obama, immediately
we, with the american people overwhelmingly and intensely behind us, will overturn your health care when you're gone

So how did that whole Hastert health care reform bill work out?
He spoke of working with Democrats wanting health care reform but here is his actual record
I guess he can tell the media one thing and then do something entirely different.
* Voted YES on denying non-emergency treatment for lack of Medicare co-pay. (Feb 2006)
* Voted YES on limited prescription drug benefit for Medicare recipients. (Nov 2003)
* Voted NO on allowing reimportation of prescription drugs. (Jul 2003)
* Voted YES on small business associations for buying health insurance. (Jun 2003)
* Voted YES on allowing suing HMOs, but under federal rules & limited award. (Aug 2001)
* Voted YES on subsidizing private insurance for Medicare Rx drug coverage. (Jun 2000)
* Voted YES on establishing tax-exempt Medical Savings Accounts. (Oct 1999)
* Rated 0% by APHA, indicating a anti-public health voting record.

I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
Let's see, the Democrats still have majorities in both houses of Congress and the presidency. They don't need the Republican members for anything at all. The only reason this would be a problem for the Democrats is if they aren't able to enforce party discipline, which isn't a GOP problem in the slightest.
As to McCain himself -- he's a politician through and through. If he thought this would hurt his chances in Arizona there's no way he'd say this.

Diplomacy is the art of saying 'nice doggy" until you can find a gun.
I'd say he was doing his job by doing everything he could to prevent the health care bill from being passed. He was standing up for the multitudes of people who didn't want the bill to pass many of whom played a role in electing him.
