Obama to Sign Health Care Bill

Into Law as Republicans Challenge Constitutionality - ABC News:

"'Some Republicans say their party made a mistake by not making more of an effort at bipartisanship, now that the bill is becoming law... A lot of the things Republicans said are going to be discredited. It is going to be a very painful and difficult situation for Republicans to work their way out of,' said David Frum, a former speechwriter for President George W. Bush who is now a resident fellow at the conservative American Enterprise Institute.

Frum dubbed the passage of the health care bill as the GOP's Waterloo.

'If you lose something as important as this, and you pick up some seats in 2010, great, maybe you lose them in 2014,' Frum said. 'This bill will still be there. This bill will still be there forever.'"

Can you believe it? A 'conservative' Republican with his head screwed on tight. He'll be kicked out of the party before he makes it to work today.


  1. Frum is Canadian (ex?). Yeah he's conservative and I don't much agree with most of his opinions, but as you say, his head is screwed on (more-or-less) tight. His Mom Barbara was also conservative and also had her head screwed on right (more or less). Life mother like son.

    Glad you got your health care bill, even if kind of watered down. Definitely a big step in the right direction.

  2. Just read their bio's. David made the mistake of saying no (emphatically) to the idea of McCain/Palin and then reversing himself. Like most conservatives, he's a little confused.
