I listened to the SOTU speech myself last evening. Guess what? Talk is cheap! That's all we've been hearing. Talk, talk, talk and more talk! From President Obama to Speaker Pelosi to Harry Reid to Dick Durbin to Steny Hoyer. Only talk! Nothing more. C-SPAN has a Health Care Hub page that has not changed its headline in two weeks. News reports tell us that the Senate version of health care reform, as watered down as it might be, is sitting at Speaker Pelosi's doorstep. Yet, what do we hear from Nancy Pelosi? Nothing! After 12 months of heated debate and rhetoric, Congress is now moving on health care reform like molasses in January. Meanwhile, our members keep getting abused by the private insurance companies. The working men and women of America keep getting screwed and you keep telling us, don't worry, health care reform is coming. If you ask me, it's all BS! If you ask me, the GOP didn't kill health care reform. Obama and Pelosi and Reid did! The one thing you must admire about the GOP in Congress, when they get a majority, they never let Democrats speak. The GOP knows how to win. The GOP knows how to stifle the opposition and not let them up for air. The GOP does everything in their power and uses all of the tools they have to pass their agenda. The are efficient and effective and they are determined to win at all costs. Democrats, on the other had, are wimps. They don't know how to lock arms and march together. They are spineless and they lack courage to fight for themselves. Right now they are all worried about their jobs. They should be! In November 2010, even if we get health care reform, many Democrats will lose their seat in Congress. Many are going home. I've had enough! I worked hard to get Obama elected and to give him a majority in both houses of Congress and he wasted his opportunity to health his signature legislation passed, health care reform. He wimped out! He's a one term President and he didn't even go down swinging. He's spineless!

I share your frustration, Tony. Talk is cheap. But it has only been a year, and it is possible that Dems could finally spring into action if we turn up the pressure. Here's one article that gave me some hope:

"The principal feature of American libtardism is sanctimoniousness. By loudly denouncing all bad things–war and hunger and date rape–liberals testify to their own terrific goodness. More important, they promote themselves to membership in a self-selecting elite of those who care deeply about such things... It's a kind of natural aristocracy, and the wonderful thing about this aristocracy is that you don't have to be brave, smart, strong, or even lucky to join it, you just have to be libtard."

- P. J. O'Rourke:
