"Earlier this year, GOP leaders sent a letter to the president in May stating that they would like to work with the administration to find "common ground" on healthcare reform.
But the administration responded with a tersely worded letter indicating that they had healthcare reform under control."
Is anyone surprised that Obama has had no contact with Republicans on Health Care since April? I'm not.
First off, Obama, as always, is leading from the rear on Nationalized Health Care.
The ones that are doing the heavy lifting for him are the House & Senate Lib/Dems. They are the ones taking all the heat while Obama sits in the White House, or Martha's Vineyard, or Camp David waiting to see what direction to take.
Tonight Obama will give the majority of Americans a big F*CK YOU. He will take a full-tilt approach on the Government Option. Obama has nothing to lose by going for it all because if he fails he can always come back, over, and over again, and fight another day.
Will I be watching the Community Organizer in Chief tonight? Of course not! I know what he's going to say and.......................................... the US Open is on.
UPDATE: Today, The Community Organizer in Chief said:
"I'm open to new ideas," the president said in an interview Wednesday in which he previewed the themes of his speech. "We're not being rigid and ideological about this thing."
No, of course not!
