    Public Option Dead

    The only way Obama can save Obama Care is go jettision the public option. Otherwise he risks alienating the votes from the Blue Dogs he needs. The Blue Dogs know their Congressional seats are at risk if they vote in favor of a public option and if they do, 2010 could very well be 1994 all over again.

    It's been a bad summer for the teleprompter president.

    • If the Democrats STILL think they are "The party of Jeffeson" they all need to be LOCKED UP in an asylum! They don't have ths SIGHTEST idea about what Jefferson stood for. They are in fact AGAINST everything Jefferson stood for!

      The democrats are HEAVILY for gunn control/confiscation - what does Jefferson say about this:
      "The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government."
      - Thomas Jefferson

      Democrats (and rebpulicans) want to continue the Federal reserve and bank takeovers of the U.S. - what does Jefferson say about this:
      "If the American People ever allow the banks to control the issuance of their currency, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property, until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers occupied. The issuing of money should be taken from the banks and restored to Congress and the People to Whom it belongs!"
      -President Thomas Jefferson

      The democrats want this MASSIVE federal spending boondoggle called "Health Care Reform" and want to tax everything - what does Jefferson say about this:
      "We must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt. We must make our election between economy and liberty or profusion and servitude. If we run into such debt, as that we must be taxed in our meat and in our drink, in our necessaries and our comforts, in our labors and our amusements, for our calling and our creeds...[we will] have no time to think, no means of calling our miss-managers to account but be glad to obtain subsistence by hiring ourselves to rivet their chains on the necks of our fellow-sufferers... And this is the tendency of all human governments. A departure from principle in one instance becomes a precedent for[ another]... till the bulk of society is reduced to be mere automatons of misery... And the fore-horse of this frightful team is public debt. Taxation follows that, and in its train wretchedness and oppression."
      - Thomas Jefferson

      Need I go on???????

    • Wrong. He knows why he likes it. He wants the government to run our lives for us in every way.

    • audacity...you are Exactly on target with that assessment..if we can see this, Obama can too...his speech this week better be damn good and much more centrist.

    • Too bad women will have to keep having abortions because they can not afford to insure their children. Of course the 500,000 + American children already in the foster care system are already on Socialized Medicine. The right just cares about strong statements that make them feel good and not actually doing anything that requires effort.

      50000 adoptions in this country last year, it is pathetic how full of crap the right is about the value of life.
