Remember how many of you condemned Joe Wilson for calling the President a liar? How anyone who criticizes Obama MUST BE RACIST? Well turns out Joe Wilson has been right all along. Let's see if you are even half as quick to apologize as you were to condemn. Being the gutless, spineless and complete principle lacking liberals that you are, I think we all know how yet again you will come up short.
OH HOW EASY IT IS TO FORGET THE LIES OF OUR OWN. Just what would you say if these lies belonged to George Bush? Oh it hurts so bad knowing you are nothing more than a sorry hypocrite.

Negotiate health care reform in public sessions televised on C-SPAN
To achieve health care reform, "I'm going to have all the negotiations around a big table. We'll have doctors and nurses and hospital administrators. Insurance companies, drug companies -- they'll get a seat at the table, they just won't be able to buy every chair. But what we will do is, we'll have the negotiations televised on C-SPAN, so that people can see who is making arguments on behalf of their constituents, and who are making arguments on behalf of the drug companies or the insurance companies. And so, that approach, I think is what is going to allow people to stay involved in this process.">>More
