It Was a Good Speech

Good Morning Bloggers! It was a good speech last night. It was a good explanation of what needs to be done. He was a little too bi-partisan for my taste (since I don't believe the Republicans intend to help at all), but that's his shtick.

Most important, he finally used the word "liars" in a major speech to describe the people who lied over the Summer. That was important to me. I also thought he did a great job describing health care reform in terms of morality. He spoke to our hearts as well as our heads.

I loved the last part about Teddy Kennedy's vision for what is good in America, and that it's important to realize how we handle health care will help define our "character" as our nation. Finally, it was great the way he called on key Republican Senators, pointing out how they supported similar "moral" legislation in the past. This time should be no different.

The question remains whether or not he's willing to fight the good fight. That is yet to be determined. I did feel hopeful last night, but like the Republicans said during the election, the man "does a good speech."

Thursday's Political Rave - Michael

PS - It seems the Republicans are sticking to their lies, despite every attempt to debunk this Summer's propaganda. It seems they will find a way to spin anything we do (e.g., the way we refuse to ban illegals from emergency rooms) to create fear and loathing among their idiotic fan base. In my opinion they will never stop, and Obama is wasting his time with them.

It was a good speech, he would find it hard to do a bad one. He did reach out more than I thought he would, but I am not holding my breath about any bi-partisanship. The republicans have gained headlines by being willfully obstructive, and they will keep doing it until it doesn't work. They want to dominate all debates until the mid-terms. As an opposition, one could say they are effective, but when in power, the word pathetic comes to mind.

It might have been a good speech as you put it but again he lied to the American people when he said illegals would not be covered, sure they will, they are covered today and they will be covered tomorrow.

Anyone with any brains knows that was a bold face lie, the illegals will continue to clog up the emergency rooms tomorrow as they do today, they will continue to get their health care as usual, and of all people Boh you should know this is a lie because you live in a state where the illegals have help bankrupt California because our laws make it a crime to deny anyone health care regardless of their status.

Thanks Holte - I second your use of the word pathetic. That's what I think of Republicans today. :)

GR, you're as absurd as all the rest of those who believe the lies. They're not covered. The only thing you idiots are angry about is the fact that we refuse to write legislation that prevenets people from getting help in emergency rooms. My answer to that is that you people are heartless and despicable. No industrialized nation on earth turns people away from emergency care. The idea is disgusting.

You call us (and the president) liars because we refuse to create a national health care ID based on citizenship. That's retarded. Your side is out-of-control. You guys will find a way to spin anything we do to create fear in those with weaker minds - your favorite audience.

Your side always claimed to be more moral, more Christian. What a joke that is now. Everybody sees how unChristian and unAmerican you people are now. Your party's lack of scruples and human decency seems to know no bounds.

Boh you must think everyone is stupid, States such as California who has a huge burden of providing health care to the illegals will use federal money which will be diverted to pay the huge medical expense's that these people impose on States.

Don't tell me they will not be covered because they will, and your tax bill is going to increase to pay for it, mark my words.

That is the way the Obama crowd will get around the issue.

Last word on this issue, the illegals will continue to get health care, mine, yours, and everyone's tax dollars will continue to pay for it, and if you believe otherwise I have a bridge I will sell you.

I will be waiting to see what happens when the first one is denied.

It appears that public support for reform has been increasing since the speech, which implies that it was effective.

"It was awful! A few wore swastika ribbons on their sleeves, and most were screaming horrible things about our president. The anger was palpable; the fear and loathing psychological."

Another good example of the chickens coming home to roost.

"Your side always claimed to be more moral, more Christian."

No where have I ever mentioned religion in my posts so do not try and make me out to be some religious nut case.
