  •  George W. Bush could get his bills passed (13+ / 0-)

    One would hope that sending anthrax to congressmen and sociopathic fear-mongering to the public aren't the only way to get things done, but Obama has had the health care votes to win a public option from day one. This needledicking "trial balloon" advance/retreat cheap tease is appalling - people are dying every day from insurance co. "murder-by-spreadsheet". You're not funny, Rahm.

    •  For me, it's the 'cheap tease' angle which (5+ / 0-)

      is so patronizing.  This is DCesque in nature and part of the business as usual routine and so frustrating.  If this is a preview of Obama style business as usual, his numbers will continue to drop and stay there.

      I also recognize the bi-partisan crap for what it is but is so annoying and insulting.

      I also believe that a strong bill will pass with the public option in place.

      I've taken a break from reading/listening to most of what's left of the August marathon.  I've even taken a short vacation from Rachel and KO.  Gasp.

    •  It's a "strip tease" dance (0+ / 0-)

      … coyly hiding behind trial balloons to see how much they can get away with "stripping" from the bill.
