Open line and Obama

Posted By on Wed, Sep 9, 2009 at 7:02 PM

Here's your thread.

UPDATE: Well? Public option on the table still, sorta, kinda, down the line. Kennedy invoked. Threat issued to call down the lying liars.

Personal note: A Repub congressmen from South Carolina, Rep. Joe Wilson, showed his rear by shouting that Obama was a liar when he said his plan wouldn't cover illegal aliens. Joe Wilson was a fraternity brother of mine at Washington and Lee University. Whatever his politics then (he was a Thurmond admirer), he was polite and soft-spoken. But that was 37 years ago.

I wish Obama had called him down more sternly. I sent a note, but it was hard because his site is being slammed. I told him I doubted Gen. Lee would have approved.
