    in that obama should have had mccain's campaign rhetoric ready, in order to point out that a lot of what he said he wanted was in the bill.  however, they didn't say that the rethugs won.  in fact, they said the exact opposite.

      one side was under prepared yet "won." having watched segments at a time intermittently it seemed everyone came with the same old rhetoric we've been hearing for months, so in the hearts and minds of the people who needed to be convinced to support this legislation, independents and the moderate dems, I'd say no one won since they likely saw more of the same partisan talking points from both sides. Someone needed to bring a game changer, and neither side did.

        was specifically about not having mccain's words during the campaign on hand in order to smack him in the face with it.  i didn't see the whole thing yet, so i can't say who won or who lost.  i was merely refuting what a previous commenter said about what the verdict was on msnbc.  i will say, though, that i agree that it was a lost opportunity not to remind mccain what he said during the campaign about health care.  that said, from what i've seen, all the rethugs did was whine about starting over.

          He seemed to vanish at end, not hanging around to shake the president's hand.  Guess he's still smarting about the loss of the election.

            showed himself to be a bitter, self-centered asshole who cares only about defending his lost campaign and winning the one he's in now.  he doesn't give a shit about the american people.  he made that very clear.

              Underpants shows up on the floor of the senate wearing his underpants over the overpants. He's reaching that point in dementia where this is a real possibility.

                i think he's just a narcissist.  he's lived his whole life trying to live up to the legacies of his father and grandfather.  being president would have trumped their accomplishments, and he failed.  he's just a bitter, washed-up, self-centered asshole who cares only about his own greatness.
