Obama continues to whine about GOP opposition to health care reform
Yes, the man who's party has what almost amounts to a super-majority in both houses of Congress is busy blaming the guys in the minority  for the lack of success (so far) of his scheme to nationalize health care in our country.
"I think early on, a decision was made by the Republican leadership that said, 'Look, let's not give him a victory, maybe we can have a replay of 1993, '94, when Clinton came in, he failed on health care and then we won in the mid-term elections and we got the majority. And I think there are some folks who are taking a page out that playbook," Obama said.
Of course, he doesn't allow that GOP opposition could have anything to do with conservative principles, (as rare as that seems for us conservatives sometimes, but still). Or even that the majority of the American people simply don't want what he's selling...just like they didn't want what Bill and HIllary tried to sell in 1993.
Nah, it's those wascawy wepubwicans again.
Only 17 Democrat Senators hold town-halls back home
The Politico  did a survey of Senate offices and found that only 17, less than a thrid of Senate Democrats, were holding town-hall meetings while back home for the August recess. It seems that they're worried about "exposing " themselves to bad PR situations. You know, the kind that can end up making them look stupid on You Tube, or just serve as a focal point for home-grown opposition. It will be interesting to see if this strategy backfires on them, leaving them looking aloof and out of touch with their constituents.
FactCheck.org says Obama's wrong about federal funding of abortion
Despite Obama's claims that health care "reform" opponents were spreading "fabrications" and "bearing false witness" about his plan, even the non-partisan FactCheck.org  has weighed in and admitted that currently proposed plans would indeed result in the use of taxpayer funds to pay for abortions. Now we'll just sit back and wait for the White House to say FactCheck is "fabricating", since they tend to attack the messenger, rather than confront the message.
