    In 2003, Illinois state Sen. Barack Obama received a big round of applause for telling a gathering of the AFL-CIO, “I happen to be a proponent of single-payer, universal health care plan.”

    This week, speaking at a town hall gathering in Portsmouth, N.H., President Obama said, “I have not said that I was a single-payer supporter because, frankly, we historically have had a employer-based system in this country with private insurers, and for us to transition to a system like that I believe would be too disruptive.

    In SIX YEARS people might change their approach either because they've either changed their mind or because they don't think their previous idea is politically doable. Do you imagine anyone changed their mind about the war in Viet Nam between 1964 and 1970?

    Or he is planing to incrementalize toward a single payer system. But the real point is his claim that he never supported it.

    And I thought to myself.. well if my wife looked like MO.. I would probably claim I was single too~!!!

    I guess he took a page from the Republican handbook, "he was for it before he was against it". Need I name examples of that play from the right?

    Actually I was quoting Sarah Palin but Kerry is no better. As much as I didn't want Bush there was no way I was voting for Kerry.

    I don't know about you LB but my eyes, corrected, are 20/20 and I can say with certainty that Governor Sarah Palin is no HE. I know that some on the far left are blinded by Obama's supposed masculinity but that is unseemly of a Christian.

    At least Kerry wasn't an out and out traitor like Bush was. Bush started America on a path of decline just like the Roman Empire.

    Could you elaborate ? I'd be glad to tell you how much of a failure Kennedy was, if you'd articulate your problems with Reagan.

    You are always commenting on how you lost your job during the Clinton years. Well, a great number of workers lost their job during the Reagan years, I know I almost starved to death during his reign. It was only when a more liberal republican, George Bush Sr. and Democrat Bill Clinton was elected that the oil industry started to recover.
