Oh it’s much too late for that. If this is Bambi’s version of making the republicans look bad while he forces socialized medicine down our throats, he has another thing comin’. Maybe, just maybe, he doesn’t realize that there are millions of us standing behind the true conservatives in Congress.
Remember folks, nothing gets passed by the progressives in the House or Senate until we flip this congress in 270 days.
President Barack Obama is planning to host a televised meeting with Republican and Democratic congressional leaders on health care reform.
The Feb. 25 meeting is an attempt to reach across the aisle but not a signal that the president plans to start over, as Republicans have demanded, a White House official said.
“I want to come back [after the Presidents Day congressional recess] and have a large meeting — Republicans and Democrats — to go through, systematically, all the best ideas that are out there and move it forward,” Obama said in an interview with Katie Couric during CBS’s Super Bowl pre-game show Sunday.
Obama said he wants to “look at the Republican ideas that are out there.”
“If we can go, step by step, through a series of these issues and arrive at some agreements, then, procedurally, there’s no reason why we can’t do it a lot faster the process took last year,” he said.
In a statement, the official said, “What the president will not do is let this moment slip away. He hopes to have Republican support in doing so — but he is going to move forward on health reform.”
The energizer bunny-in-charge is still hellbent on telling us how it’s going to be….
(As an aside, Bambi is looking pretty beat up compared to last year…)
