Let me remind you this [Americans allegedly dying because of lack of universal health care] has been going on for years. We are bringing it to a halt. The harsh fact of the matter is when you're going to pass legislation that will cover 300 [million] American people in different ways it takes a long time to do the necessary administrative steps that have to be taken to put the legislation together to control the people. - emphasis mine, definitely the part of the sentence that the Conservatives are all over, and as well they should be, since if a Republican / Conservative said this it would be all over the Liberal sites instantly....
The quote is being taken from a WJR interview that you can listen to in its entirety if you can stand that much of a politician's blatherings.
I mean ouch... ouch, ouch, ouch. You know that the Right's concerns revolve around government's reach into our lives and fearsome prognostication regarding "losing our freedom - [to die uninsured and shift the cost onto the tax payers who are richer than us]" and you say something like this?! Really?!!
I can't wait to see how he's going to try to spin this later on... I mean what can you say after this - except perhaps "Bye-bye to my future elections chances" and "Whoops - sorry for that dagger in your back, Mr. President!"
Jeezus - please refer to my rant in earlier post about thinking before sounds come out of your mouth!
