Dog meet Pony…

As I suspected, the health care summit was nothing more than a”Dog and Pony” Show.

“If we’re unable to resolve differences over health care, we will need to move ahead on decisions … that’s what elections are for.”

President Barack Obama

So for all the blather… the results remain the same. We’re large, and we’re in charge. So much for their so called attempt at reconciliation, and bipartisanship.

Maybe the Democrats need a vocabulary lesson, from the Merriam-Webster Dictionary:

Main Entry: bi·par·ti·san
Pronunciation: \(ˌ)bī-ˈpär-tə-zən, -sən, -ˌzan, chiefly British ˌbī-ˌpär-tə-ˈzan\
Function: adjective
Date: 1895

: of, relating to, or involving members of two parties ; specifically : marked by or involving cooperation, agreement, and compromise between two major political parties

Not the “you’ll go along with us and like it” mentality clearly displayed at this meeting.

The latest Gallup poll out shows the gap between those who oppose the health care bill as it stands right now, and those who support it, is getting wider. 52% of those surveyed are opposed to the attempts by Democrats to circumvent a filibuster by passing health care by a simple majority, as compared to 39% who favor it.

Here are some more words the Democrats may need a lttle help with:

Main Entry: ar·ro·gance
