It was very good for what conservatives demand. It’s not 100 percent, but I’ll give him a vast amount of credit for getting a message out that conservatives can relate to.

“I will repeal and replace obamacare”. But....what DOES that mean? I do have concern about that.

The present health care system, while mostly delivering excellent care, is grossly inefficient and unnecessarily costly. Reform is needed but OCare is not the answer. IMHO the biggest problem is uncoupling it from employment such that it's *Your* coverage and you won't get in a big mess if laid off or forced into early retirement before Medicare kicks in.

Akin is moving up in the polls. If only the Republican National Party would support him. I have been blogging for him all day. St Charles Central Republican Committee endorsed him and many are moving back to Akin.

It’s not a question of what I want. I don’t care what he says because he already has my vote. (I’d vote for the neighbors’ Golden Retriever, at this point.) The question is, is this speech calibrated to rouse the troops and sway those who are sitting on the fence? Red meat would not do it. He has to persuade people that he’s not a store mannikin, he’s not fake, he’s not a robot. This is the speech that was necessary to show the human side.

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED

It has been stated over and over. You will be able to shop and buy your own insurance across statelines and be able take it wherever you go. It has been out there for months. It is the free market approach to healthcare reform, it is not a govt program.

Grand slam.

But we have a LOT of work to do over the next two months-ish.

Senate. House. Presidency. We need it all.

Or we can kiss it all goodbye.

Sigh. I’ll have to look into that tomorrow. ( I’m afraid you’re probably right )

Right now, I’d rather relish in the rest of the 90% that was awesome as I drift off to sleep. It really was refreshing to hear positive things said about America, all the while pointing out Obama’s ineptitude.

We’ve had enough depression with this president we have. Its time to get our energy up and get to work and cynism is useless then.

I think it was just Clint acting, or performing just as he intended to perform. I think you are right - a little touch of Jimmy Stewart's shaky voice.
