Boehner McCain health summit.jpg

Obama offered his customary across-the-aisle gestures after marching up to the Blair House without a winter coat. Boehner was ready with his familiar prop, the foot-high stack of health care legislation documents, supposedly demonstrating the Dem plan is “too complicated.” The over-caffeinated McCain had his Irish up.
With the sound off, the overly-hyped health care talking point summit only demonstrated that the Repubs, realizing the Prez has been scoring points off their hostility and oppositionality, learned to mostly confine the snickering to the breaks.
