      I haven't seen that happen yet.
      and having some good examples provided, ignore them and pull out an issue that fits your narrow-tive. well-played!

        didn't have the majority of people who wanted a public option.  Google is your friend.

        I would think that after what happened to you recently, that you'd be pretty careful to make a concerted effort to post comments with substance.

          to support your underlying point of Obama's inadequacy. This example went like this:

          1. you posted a quote

          What would have happened had the President sided with public opinion
          and then you stated
          I haven't seen that happen yet.
          2. in response, came two examples where President Obama sided with public opinion:

             a. ending DADT
             b. availability of contraception

          3. Upon getting this response, you pivoted away from saying you'd never seen the President siding with public opinion to
           

          Public option, anyone? Anyone? Bueller?
          So rather than "saying you're wrong" that Obama didn't side with the public regarding the public option, I'm saying that the public option didn't enter this thread until you tried to stuff it in the place where previously there was talk of whether President Obama had ever sided with public opinion.

          Then you tied it all in a pretty little bow with a personal remark. Nice touch! But keep to the issue at hand, if possible, thanks.
