Comments:
I love this debate. There is nowhere to hide when you say all people in America (Note not just all citizens but everyone who happens to be physically here) have a right to free health care, or as they said at Kennedy's funeral "A God given right to free health care."

Apparently some people believe there is a right to a car, a student loan, a low interest mortgage, and even a good job and free health care. If you believe any of this you don't understand America or how our constitution was formed, and you want security over freedom.

Our country cannot survive if the majority of voters fall for this line of thought. Thank God most people who voted for Obama don't seem to be going for this nonsense ether.

My reaction? Free Ponies for all!!!:cool:

He gets a B+ for delivery. He is the Orator-In-Chief afterall. Slight downgrade for reading the teleprompter and his timing was off allowing for a guffaw on the "details" moment.

He gets a D- for failing to accomplish his stated goal. He did not "clarify" his position at all. He merely restated it using different words. He also lied on several points during the speech, beginning with "these are the facts and no one disputes them."

He also said he would listen to anyone. Apparently this begins today because he hasn't listened to any Republicans since April and he isn't listening now to the majority of Americans that want him to keep his Commie hands off our health care..

F- Obama drove deeper the partisanship he is trying to avoid. He undermined America. His speech was akin to a father telling his kids to "get along". His speech was void of details of the bill.....need I go on?!!!

Why would I watch the speech? All I would hear is the same nebulous shit he has been spouting for 9 months.
