President Obama is trundling off to Ohio with his entourage in tow. He tells the crowd he's there for a cancer patient who couldn't get health insurance. Trust me, Obama's there for Obama.
If the President so much wants a Health Care Bill, he should do it in such a way that doesn't freeze out more than half the country. I guess that would mean much needed tort reform, making insurance competitive by buying insurance across state lines, getting rid of public pay for abortion, and finding out what the other half of the country wants. Not likely with Obama, surrounded by sychophants.
The latest is that Axelrod et al are trying to scapegoat Rahm Emmanuel for the impasse. Why not the Israelis? They're proving to be a handy scapegoat for an administration which kow-tows to enemies and disparages friends.
