    Mari, the GAO did our research for us. They say Obama's numbers are wrong. Try getting informed yourself before preaching to the rest of us.

    My gag reflex was triggered by the first one. Four is just coma inducing.

    As an African American what I'm more frustrated about is that CNN is surrounding the President's press conference with its Black in America series. Mr. Obama is the president of all of the U.S. and this insistance on doing this series and always connecting something going on with Mr. Obama to it is constant reinforcement that he's a black president. I hate this because you still have bigoted people who only see him as a black president and people who are praying for his distruction, hoping to give him a Waterloo moment. So, I have no problem with our president staying in touch with the people and engaging us in dialogue. What I'm frustrated about is the reinforcement and constant reminder by CNN and others that he's a black president in an environment where that's all some people can see.

    Too much!! Everytime Obama doesn't get his way he runs to the TV to try and smooth talk the voters. Maybe that used to work, but it has become over kill!! Kind of like his chicken little routine, the sky is falling, the sky is falling if we don't pass this right NOW!! Remember the pork filled stimulus?? Yeah, that worked!

    Honestly I do not care what the pundits nor what professional bloggers think!

    President Obama needs to take his case for healthcare to the American people. We need facts, we need truth, not more rhetoric or politics!

    What Americans do not know will hurt us! For instance, Americans need to KNOW that we ARE PAYING for ALL of the uninsured NOW!

    Do your own research, don't be spoon fed by the media or political parties!
