Some followup to yesterday's Presidential visit to Portsmouth NH:
Kane has a pictorial essay, with optional music.
Skip at Granite Grok has some video here
he describes his Port City experiences here
(with also some spot-on comments about the differences between Us and
Them). Co-Grokster Doug has a video essaying the
astroturfing "paid hacks & union thugs" in attendance.
The Union Leader's Drew Cline was absolutely on fire yesterday
posts. But who's counting?
notes that our courageous President was not afraid to take a hardball
question from the 11-year-old daughter of a longtime Obama supporter
Charlie Arlinghaus suggests
a couple reasons why President Obama
chose to come to New Hampshire, rather than Maine or Massachusetts.
And those reasons are: (1) "Dirigo Choice" in Maine, and "Commonwealth
Care" in Massachusetts, both schemes to deliver "coverage" to the
Dirigo Choice and Commonwealth Care were both noble experiments that adopted one approach to try and expand care and control costs. However, they failed. If states really are laboratories of democracy, as we often say, we should look carefully at the results of these experiments. They failed. It would be a shame to recreate them on a national scale.
And, oh yeah: Obama
I'm sure he's being straight with us about the whole "death
panel" thing, though.
