    All right. Well, a lot of those folks, your employer it’s estimated would see premiums fall by as much as 3,000 percent [sic], which means they could give you a raise. (Applause.)

    Uh, tell me when that happens. That’s health care reform I could support.

    Way to kick down the barn, Prez.

    Better stick to the prompter and the “corpsemen”

    Interesting post. I’m not sure Mr. Obama is anything new when it comes to a guy who avoids playing it safe.

    As David Brooks observed on Meet the Press on Sunday, we have now elected two riverboat gamblers in a row.

    One bet his presidency on the Iraq War, which started out popular and become very unpopular.

    The other appears to be betting his presidency on a health care bill or bills that are very unpopular………only time will tell. Quite frankly, I don’t see much different from this president than others.

    I never caught the peacemaker side either. He got together with Republican leadership last spring on health care, then ceded control to Democrats in Congress and then met again last month.

    Don’t get me wrong. I hardly take him for a radical Socialist like the far right…….I just don’t see a big difference from the past.
