Here is video of Democrat Mary Landrieu telling CNN's John King yesterday that she would "tend not" to support a "Public Option" is Health Care legislation. She said the focus should be on "bending the cost curve."

She also said it would be "very difficult" to support legislation that used tax-payer money to fund abortion.

This would seem to show that even among the Democrats, they are cracking in their support of what Obama is trying to do. . . . . (Watch Video)

“tend”

They wonder why people are screaming at them at townhalls.

The Democrats are as wiley as a band of newly minted teenagers ~ just not as smart.

Saw a few seconds of her interview while channel surfing...and she was begging for more Katrina cash FOUR YEARS and $81 BILLION dollars after the storm. All BO will do is threaten to turn off the taxpayer-dollar spigot. Mary Airhead will fold like a cheap umbrella and vote for ObamaCare like the rest of the Dem lemmings. She will be re-elected in LA until she dies.

Boy, she certainly isn't missing many meals.

Maybe she needs to think about her own health instead of ours! Clueless bimbo!

When’s Mary up for re-election.Probably not next year.Otherwise,she would have gotten “the word” from Hussein (about campaign funds...a primary challenger,etc) and her tune would have changed to “my goodness,this sounds like a great idea”.

Pelican State ping

It was about time Landrieu got an earful from fellow Louisianians opposed to the socialized-medicine bill.

It's not like we're not trying to get her out! Acadiana, which was a stronghold for he, is not happy and her big base in New Orleans is not back totally. Maybe we have a shot this time. You are right, though, about folding. She had a town hall meeting in Reserve, LA - population approx. 9,000. David Vitter, on the other hand had 5,000 at his town hall in the local area. David Vitter has always been against the government healthcare so his wasn't as bad as some TH meetings I have seen on TV.
