That "Historic" Health Care Bill...

Headline: Historic health care bill clears senate hurdle

Historic? OK, but then so was Waterloo, the Holocaust and the Assassination of Abraham Lincoln.

What the Senate agreed to do was NOT pass the bill, but debate the bill.

And those mean old Republicans? According to the AP, they're "eager to inflict a punishing defeat on President Barack Obama," NOT "save the American people from a deficit-busting, liberty-curtailing legislative disaster."

Thank you, AP for that bit of objective, non-ideological fact-checking.

Gil-
The Republicans have not only stated that they are "eager to inflict a punishing defeat on President Barack Obama", but they've specifically said they want to make it his Waterloo.

The Republicans are not engaging in any other principle besides rank partisanship, and they aren't even bothering to pretend it's anything else.

The discussions around the water coolers and on the street are about the size and cost of the federal government, and the legacy of debt we are leaving our children.
With bailouts, corn ethanol and energy mismanagement, the global warming hoax, and international weakness and apologies, people across America are doubting whether this self-serving, big government political agenda truly benefits the overburdened and underappreciated citizenry.

Today, Rassmussen Reports showed that support for Obama's trillion-dollar health care legislation has fallen to a new low, with only 38% in favor. This was the lowest level of support recorded in two dozen tracking polls taken since June.

Those who try to turn fundamental questions about freedom and the appropriate extent to which government should interfere in our lives, into trivial partisan fingerpointing, diminish the quality of civic discourse.
