I really never thought I would hear something like this from Rahm:
“The Republican leadership,” Mr. Emanuel said, “has made a strategic decision that defeating President Obama’s health care proposal is more important for their political goals than solving the health insurance problems that Americans face every day.”
That’s the strongest position yet taken by the White House on the health care debate, and it gets extra points coming from the President’s right hand man.
Sadly it took them awhile to realize that and that could cost them some public support. But there could be a silver lining here. What the Democrats need now is strong message control. Let Republicans around the country know that they were willing to work with Republicans, but the Republicans didn’t want it. Instead the Republicans in Senate were set on being the party of “no”. Just ask John Kyl.
