"Lets Get This Done"

So says Barrack Obama. He is now sending out an olive branch to Republicans saying that he is (now, finally) willing to compromise on health care reform. This is, no doubt, one more obfuscation in a long list of obfuscations since this whole discussion began. Obama has a one track mind and it never gets off health care. He also has an interesting definition of bi-partisanship: my way or the highway. No doubt, this is what he intends with his current move to "get this done."

It won't work. The polls show that the public is overwhelmingly against the Obama Health Care plan, with or without some mild compromise. There is no incentive for Republicans to jump aboard a sinking ship.
