In another newsworthy tidbit, Grijalva says Obama signaled that discussions about the public option would continue even after his big speech before a joint session of Congress next week. That may be an indication that Obama won’t be mentioning the public option in his speech, but doesn’t want liberals to despair at that prospect.I don't know who is thinking that Obama wants 'liberals' to keep from despairing just because he's throwing over the public option. Is it Grijalva or the writer (Greg Sargent)? If it's Sargent then he's just making things up. If it's Grijalva describing how Obama is attempting to con them, then I hope Grijalva and the rest of his group actually have some guts. Something that Obama does not have. Obama's idea of a negotiation and leadership seems to be to make sure nothing changes.
It's so frustrating to see Obama give everything in the store (not to mention the building) away. Does he think they will respect him in the morning? If so, he's a fool. They will continue to pick him apart. The weaker he acts the more fun they will have.
