If this health care bill is so great - why can't it pass on its own merits?
Tonight Obama is inviting a select few who voted NO on his health care bill to the White House for a little private "party". This is a hand picked group of 10.
- Is this a little pep talk? Perhaps the long green mile to the firing squad? It could not possibly be some back door horse trading could it?
One of the lawmakers is Jim Matheson from Utah. Obama just announced that he is appointing Jim Matheson's brother, Scott Matheson to a prestigious federal judgeship in Utah.
- While Scott has passable credentials, some have offered he is not the most qualified for the position.
Well, that might take care of Jim and buy his vote. It was just announced that Jim Matheson will not be at the White House tonight. Let's see if his absence indicates he has been paid in full.
- What other little special deals are going to be brokered by Obama to force this down our throats ?
Seems the White House is looking more and more like the Mustang Ranch.
