p.s. I find this speech particularly relevant to the healthcare debate, and the Republican tactics in regards to healthcare. They had an opportunity to shape the healthcare discussion like statesmen, and they've abdicated that role to serve as fearmongers. It's a shame. And the American people deserve better. Healthcare reform is a serious issue, and it deserves better than what they've served up to their core.

the one from independence day how many presidents would jump in a plane to fight alens
Was going to say, I'll go with Pullman in ID4. Epic speech there.
"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
