Why They Still Call It “Obamacare”, I Don’t Know.

A lot of people lately have asked me why, as a supporter of President Obama, and someone who worked for months to help get him elected, I’m so pissed off about his handling of health care reform. It’s a fair question. I’ll answer the best I can.

Want a Republican to Take Ted Kennedy’s Senate Seat?

Want to follow up this health care reform bill with another that sets up a public option?

Hell, want a shot at even getting this lame-ass health care reform bill passed to begin with? Want to repeal DADT sometime in our lifetimes? How about a climate change bill? Clean energy? Or a jobs bill that does more than cut taxes for the super rich?

Obama’s Revisionist History Leaves Those That Helped Elect Him Feeling Betrayed

President Obama could have saved us all a great deal of trouble if he had just said from the outset, “No public option, no way”. Instead, he decided to play a shell game of “Now you see it, now you don’t”.

Chris Matthews, are You Talking to Me?

Chris Matthews, surely you don’t mean me? Of course, I do blog, and yes, I do get most of my news and information from blogs. Mostly because of pundits like you – who may or may not eat cheetos, but who surrendered their journalistic integrity a long, long time ago.

But Chris, if you’re laughing at me, the joke’s on you.

Chris Matthews, Are You Talking To Me?

Today on MSNBC’s Hardball, Chris Matthews thought it might be fun to trot out the Obama administration’s talking point du jour, that Democratic critics of the Senate health care bill are really just a bunch of irrational cheeto-eating surrender monkeys. MATTHEWS: I don’t consider them Democrats, I consider them netroots,
