President Obama meet yesterday with the the Republican leaders and some of their members. What was striking to me at least was the ease that Obama had (In most cases) in refuting and dismantling the Republican objections to his policys. At one point one of the Republicans stated that their solution to the health care policy would have cost one half as much and provide twice the benefits that the Democrats presented. I have heard this many times from the Republicans but think about it Why would the president not go that route if it was true? Simply it is not based on fact.
Now at one point he dodged a question about discretionary spending that I think needs to be addressed but generally I thought he exposed what the Republicans are and that is a party who has no interest in working with him and are out-rightly deceitful with their claims.
