In posting that everyone saying Stupak is innocuous is lying I went too far.

It is a very complex issue... too complex to broad-brush like that.

I question the sincerity of some, but many more have doubtless been taking a stand based on plain-reading, which is deceptive in this case. The amendment was written with the intention that it appear to be uncontroversial.

(A poison-pill is seldom labeled "poison pill")

In any event, since President Obama has offered his view on the matter I hope it will lead to more commonality of view-point.

Most of us want a bill. Most of us take choice very seriously. And most of us believe what we say when we say it.

My sincere apologies to the broad-brushed innocent

:hi:

1. Forgiven
It was not obvious at first that Stupak went so far beyond Hyde and not everyone is a slave to the 24/7 news cycle. Many who voted for Stupak probably did so thinking it was just a clarification of Hyde in this bill.

2. I'll give this a rec just for integrity...
'cause you just showed me some. I wasn't one that you're apologizing to, but it takes a big person to do this sort of thing, and it should be encouraged.

4. Yeah, but it takes a bigger person to not do it in the first place!
Poor impulse control.

Old conflicts bleed over into new issues.

I woke up in a state James Carville once called "pig-biting mad."

5. But it takes an even bigger person
to vindictively harp on the point. ;)

We're all 99% in agreement here. I don't want to fight with my DU brothers and sisters any more.

Apology accepted and I'll also apologize to you for being so brash in response to some of your OP's. :hug:

7. Cool. I wish this could extend to the Kucinich rants of late, on both sides.
Jeebus.

Your reply should be an OP.
