"I have to say that I am not familiar with the provision [of the health bill] you are talking about." -- Obama

I don't think anyone has read this boondoggle bill.

[The BLOG note: Hat tip to ]

I remember when he signed a bailout bill that had huge bonuses for execs of a failed company in it.

When confronted about it, he said something like that he would have to think about it, research the answer, and get back to the press in a couple of days.

Obama supporters trumpted this as an example of how, unlike Bush, he thinks carefully and researches the facts before answering.

I took it as an example of how Obama had no idea what he was doing and did not take the power of his Presidential pen seriously if he had no idea what was in the legislation he signed.

What this really shows is that this administration was not up to the Presidency. I don't think anyone believes that the President reads all of these bills. It is someone's job to do it though and inform the President. They can't even get that right.

Nice graphic. I sure don't understand what they're doing.

This thing is a dead weight that will drag our nation down for years to come. Obama is scrambling to get this anchor jammed through before his poll numbers really start to decline even faster than they already are.
My senators and congressman have been getting many emails from me lately from Cap and Trade to Sotomayor to Health Bill... They might ignore me, but I will not stop making my opinions known!!
Transparency... my rear end!!!!!
Time to read the bills... my rear end!!!
Stop this outrageous spending NOW!!!!!

Even some fellow democrats are getting frustrated with Obama's cluelessness and heavy-handed tactics it seems.

OT, that pic makes me feel like I've had four too many...

Of course, I would need the ETOH to deal with looking at Obama for any length of time.

Dmarks: I agree with you that BO doesn't have a clue. Some would argue that Bush didn't have a clue either, but I would argue that Bush had a love for his country that BO isn't showing me.

Chuck: This is the end result of years of Affirmative Action at work. Unfortunately, we are reaping what we have sown.

Ananda Girl: We're not supposed to know what's being shoved down our collective throats. If we were to see what it was, we'd object. That's the plan.

Jamie Dawn: So have my representatives. I remember how it helped during the immigration debacle and I can only hope it works this time as well.

Nanc: Absolutely. BO will sign our rights away if he's allowed to do so.

Brooke: Pour me another. We're going to need ETOH in the 3 1/2 years to come.
