The Health Care Summit and the GOP's " Synchronized Stalling"


The Dems said "We're very close to an agreement".

But the Republican attendees kept saying "Start over" and "a clean sheet of paper".

And MSNBC's Chris Matthews called the GOP'ers use of choreographed talking points "synchronized stalling" and "Kill (the) Bill".



To be frank, I believe little was accomplished in yesterday's health care reform summit, other than President Obama proving once again that he is the smartest guy in the room....and the display of mutual testiness between the president and former presidential opponent John McCain did prove to be an eyeopener.

But both sides seem to be entrenched in their positions, and what we had was basically a daylong photo-op for the competing sides in the healthcare debate.

What was amusing...and more than a little stupid on the part of the Republicans...was the use of the rehearsed talking points, ad nauseum. Their objections came off as artificial as John Boehner's sprayed on suntan.

Enjoy the video....a classic in editing from MSNBC.
