"Just Tell Them...

I have worked 40 years to make the Women's Suffrage platform broad enough for Atheists and Agnostics to stand upon, and now if need be I will fight the next 40 to keep it Catholic enough to permit the straightest Orthodox religionist to speak or pray and count her beads upon."

Last Night's Health Care "Scolding" Was No Game Changer

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:

"You lie!"

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.

Are they?

    I don't have much money, but I'm sending Joe Wilson a small donation for his re-election campaign for having the courage to stand up and speak the words that millions of Americans have been thinking all summer re BO and HR3200. Joe Wilson owed BO no apology. It is no insult to speak the truth to tyranny. More members of Congress should try it.

  2. Why is it ok for Pelosi to call Bush a" liar", Reid too( i fact Reid said it in his book); the dems boo him during his state of the union, and murtha says he kills innocent children and that is within the confies of Civility( as defined by Princess Nancy), but calling a liar, a liar is not ok
