    Another moment was when Barky started to speak about inheriting a mess and the camera cut away to Senator John McCain leaning over to the person sitting next to him and saying what looked like, "He is gonna blame Bush again."

    i couldn't bring myself to listen to the SOTU address, i knew it was going to be full of BS, i did listen to the Gov of Virginia though and he made some great points about letting insurance companies compete across state lines and TORT reform.

    Ginsberg did look like she was going to fall over dead in that vid. I swtiched it over to ABC from fox just as Diane Swayer was joyfully saying that the Obassiah took it to the SC and to the JCS and how they sat there while all these moron Senator's stood clapping.

    i wonder what the reaction would have been if Alito had stood up and gave the Obassiah a lecture. probably the same as last year when the Congressman shouted out "lier"

    I wonder what her reaction would have been if a conservative president were rebuking the SCOTUS for ruling against DOMA.
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    You know that nothing prevents insurance cmpanies from competing across state lines right ?

    The issue is that each state regulates what can and must be in a policy.

    This rhetoric sounds nice until you examine the facts. The states need to make some changes and allow for more bare bones sorts of options. Thats how you drop the price for a family of four in NY from 12k to 4k as they enjoy in WI.

    And careful how you go about it, we've lost plenty enough by way of state's rights, I for one do not want to see this further degraded.

    This doesn't make sense. If it is allowed, why aren't they doing it? Car insr. abides by state guidelines and they cross state lines. If they can make a profit, why can't health insr?

    you are right, she is a committed liberal and even though i am on the OTHER side from her point of view, i hope she can beat the cancer ... (i don't wish ill of anyone, but wish she could adjust her perspective to a more center of the road)

    I too am a cancer survivor ... :D

    Allowing someone to buy a policy from another state hardly infringes on "State's Rights".

    Yep. Here's the YT:

    I wish I could say I'm surprised that Obama played this card yet again. It was good to see it being called on national TV.

    The person sitting next to him was Sen Lindsay Graham (R, SC). Sorry about the Think Progress banner, but it's almost worth visiting their site to see DU-extended trying to defend their man. It's an eyeopener to see how defensive the libtards are becoming.

    I'm sure the 5 justices who voted for it would be pissed that Obama lacked the class to do what he did. But I'll bet the 4 dissenters were pretty pissed as well. Perhaps it has occurred before, but I don't know when. The incident speaks volumes about Zero.
