Health care summit

President Obama hosted what was billed as a bipartisan health care summit in D.C. today. There was, in reality, nothing bipartisan about it. The Republicans (as expected) spent the entire day whining and insisting that unless things are done their way they won’t be done at all.

This exchange between President Obama and Johnny McCain is pretty much indicative of what went on all day…

For some reason (dementia, perhaps?), it seems that Johnny has yet to realize that he lost the election. In fact, the entire Republican party appears not to have yet realized that they are in the minority. Most Democrats have not yet realized it, either.

P.S. In case you did not catch the summit on the telemachine, OFA has put together some good highlights.
