Obama: Whatever you can do, we’ve done better.
Pelosi: People are sad.
Reid: People are sad and Republicans suck.
Alexander: Here are the CBO facts.
Obama to Alexander: You lie.
Coburn, MD: We should cut costs.
Baucus: Mumble, mumble. Incoherent gibberish.
Obama: I won.
It is my sense that the Democrats want to get across the message that “we mostly agree” so that when the Republicans and Blue Dogs howl at this nonsense, they’ll argue bad faith.
I don’t think that message is working. The Republicans are talking facts, not emotions.
