Sadly, the speech Mr. Obama gave last night amounted to little more than a scolding. It was supposed to be about the future of health care in the U.S. But it wasn't. Not really. What the president did last evening, via live television, was to scold the nation for not being with him on .... some kind of "plan" that we haven't yet seen.
The scolding provoked Rep. Joe Wilson to blurt out the only line of the evening that will actually be remembered:
What the *president* talked about made most Universal Care advocates scratch their heads ... along with Dennis Kucinich:
How on earth will padding the pockets of pharmaceutical and insurance companies help us dig our way out from under this health care mess we are in? The implication is preposterous, at best.
From what I saw last night... and read this morning....
The Right thinks our president is a liar.
The Left thinks he's confused.
Nobody is citing anything about Barack Obama's health care address that they saw as a clarion call or game changer.
