This is the left’s approach to everything. Have no principles on anything. You don’t need knowledge or wisdom about history or economics or the world. Just get into power and improvise.

What a disastrous quote...to their argument. They want to re-write our entire health care system “ON THE FLY”? WTF. Screw you, Washington DC.

“We’re doing this all on the fly...”

Americans have known this from the beginning. The phrase can properly describe the entire ‘administration’. If America's enemies ever wanted an optimum time to force their advantage, now is the time...the idiot losers are in charge...I hope it does not come to that.

Mr. Baucus doesn’t speak in a manner that inspires confidence. Maybe the DNC could hire that Sham Wow guy. Or better yet, they could admit that ntohing they toss at the wall is sticking. America doesn’t want what is being suggested by the socialists.

Mr. Baucus IS a fly. All we need now is some ointment.

This is like strapping yourself in for a trans-Atlantic flight and hearing “This is your captain speaking: I haven’t actually flown an aircraft before but........”

It's a pretty frank admission. "We don't know what the hell we're doing, but it's important that we pass this, no matter how destructive, so that we can say we did something."

Just as my rep said concerning the TARP, "We had to do SOMETHING."

BAUCUS: “We’re doing this all on the fly, so it’s a little bit, makes me a little bit nervous.”

Yes, let's do a complete makeover of one-fifth of the U.S. economy "on the fly" and see to it that government cubicle-dwellers end up deciding who lives and who dies.

I think it's clear that the current generation of Washington, D.C., politicians definitely inhaled...and not just once or twice.
