Actually I can see the nexus between heathcare and the stimulus.

Those "shovel ready jobs" are going to be at the GRAVE YARD.

Clare Macaskill on the Health Care Reform bill- “We are up to our elbows in sausage-making right now.”

The one thing she said that is absolutely true!

You know, EVERY president inherits whatever problems are on the nation's plate. It's not like any president gets to start from scratch.

This constant blaming of the Bush administration is not only tiresome, it reflects a view that is decidedly juvenile and totally unrealistic.

Clare MacCaskill says she will vote against the health care bill if it “slow down the health care cost increases” - not reduce the costs, slow down the increases.

Meanwhile over on FNC Newt is making a rare brilliant appearance, coming up with just the best of analysis as only he can do.

But of course one would be naive if you don't hold your breath every time he opens his mouth wondering WTH he will say next!

Sunday Morning Talk Shows - That amazing time of the week when people go on television to speak authoritatively and at length regarding subjects about which they know absolutely nothing.

Precisely why I never watch these gasbags...with rare exception; they are just lying through their teeth.

Newt is Fox cable ranting about the EPA and the CO2 thing.

One wonders how he squares this with his push for action with Pelosi.

He is also quoting Krauthammer's column about how this is a cult.

I wish I didn't have to doubt Newt's sincerity, but he does so many flaky things that I just don't trust him.

Inhoff up, states the President doesn't have the power to make commitments on behalf of US without consent of Congress.

Markey immediately disagrees.

Wallace asks Markey: In light of the recent Oil for Food Scandal, how can we commit Billions of taxpayer dollars and be confident that the money is going to where it is supposed to?

Imhoff, this agreement is trying to make developing countries do something they don't want to do...China is opening the equivalent of three coal buring power plants a week.

Yeah, that Nobel speech did him a lot of good, didn't it?

Just think, Obamamas starts soon, with the Oprah interview in which he brags that he gives good presents and whines about how Michelle doesn't give him nice ones. That should make a big hit with women.

I bet we hit -20 within a week, especially if that "all expenses paid trip for firendly journalists and guests to Hawaii" makes the American newscasts or at least talk radio.

He actually climbed from -14 to -10 on Afghanistan. The Nobel Prize speech in Oslo, on the other hand, pushed him over the cliff.

Yeah really.

Looks like the DBM may have to refine the caucus calls as Stephy goes to mornings and speculation is that he will be replaced on his Sunday show.

They will need a new DBM defender for the Barky ADM.

Gregory lets Romney speak briefly and then dismisses his comments as partisan.

They have got to stop pulling that “this would have been much worse but for porkulus” card.

China will switch to Nuclear as soon as they can for sure.
Pollution is an issue over there but won’t be solved until they reach critical mass.

Fox - ClimateGate - Markey explains away the eamils as just part of the climate “discussion”.

Inhofe - This is flawed science. IPCC is using cooked science.

Wallace asking the guests about "climate gate" Markey: Holds up Climate change study book..quotes from it. Refers to "deniers" Dangerous Global Warming. The danger is if we do nothing...

Imhoff, warmest decade in history based on flawed science. Tells how real scientists came to him four years ago complaining that they were denied access to the raw data. The information available on his website.

According to Greenspan, people out of work for 24 weeks or more forget how to do what they did. They lose their skills.

?????

They let this man run the Fed.

I mean, he married Andrea Mitchell, for goodness sake! How does THAT square with good judgement!
