ERIC BOLLING, GUEST HOST: The health care debate is raging across the country, facing massive GOP opposition. Now, you hear people talk a lot about reconciliation and the nuclear option when it comes to getting a bill passed. But beware of politicians speaking jargon, some of the words become more confusing. What does it really mean?
Joining me now is our guest, Ann Coulter, syndicated columnist and author of the best-selling book, "Guilty."
Ann, thanks for coming on the program. You know, we've been watching this thing and it goes from I don't know a single-payer system to the government plan, the option, then to the co-ops, and now, it comes to hey, you know, this thing may be forced through with what we're calling a "nuclear option."
What does this really mean?
ANN COULTER, SYNDICATED COLUMNIST: If it's forced through under reconciliation, what it means is a massive Republican victory in next year's congressional elections, repealing whatever they put through. I mean, I don't know if the Democrats are going to do that. They could. That's why Americans should pay attention to elections and be careful about putting a lot of Democrats in office, if they don't want socialism, because that's what the Democrats are trying to push through here.

Yeah, you know you’re about to get screwed when your side starts using the term “nuclear option”. Seems like they talk about it, you get your hopes up, and then you find yourself covered in radioactive rhetoric while your side’s leaders are safe in their bunkers congratulating themselves on the “great deals” they made with the opposition.
Golly, a bit of conceptual agility ...
I’m so thankful that Juan McCain and Lindsey Graham and others joined the Gang of 14 to prevent the Republicans from using a nuclear option to end Dim filibusters, and to allow a vote on dozens of Bush judicial appointees. They prevented that so Dims wouldn’t use nuclear tactics against Republicans in the future, and other attempts to skirt Senate rules such as clay pigeons during the 2007 amnesty debate.
Old Juan and Lindsey sure saved us from nuclear options, and preserved the comity and traditions of the Senate. What foresight and leadership!
Olde Juan and Lindy Gramnesty are like negotiating Beheadings with two little 83 Year Old Virgin Lady Sunday School Teachers! Thr Terrorists are laughing themselves simple rolling on the floors trying to figure out what to demand next as they have already gotten everything on their Dream Lists handed to them on Silver Platters without Giving Up One Hostage! Just like OBAMA HUSSEIN negotiating with His fellow Terrorist MUSLIMS!
Power corrupts and you’ve seen what it has done to these clowns... They actually think that they are useful and or popular...geez...
You forgot to obey the rule!
That's a good picture of Ann!
