Obama on Letterman tonight in Australia
always a day late.He explains his health policy so sensibly. It's just a mystery why anyone wouldn't want it .

Which means the anti-campaign is a maliciously organized.Best thing he says : even leaders in countries with Centre Right governments are puzzled at the opposition.

I'm convinced the overwhelming majority of Americans want this change.

1. There are 80 million Americans who either can't read or can't comprehend what they read.
Therein lies the problem. Australians are smarter.

4. No reading required, here.
Problem is that people don't even listen when it's right there on the teevee.

5. When you have preconceived anger, you tend to not listen.

2. You wouldn't believe the culture of ignorance here.
Sad but true. So many don't think for themselves. They just believe whatever talk radio and the teevee tells them.

:(

3. I am convinced as well.
I have had conversations with my conservative neighbors here in the "center of the nation". Our conversations regarding the health care debate never last long, most often about three sentences. Always they end with the same concensus, "Something has to change." The opposition is highly visible, but not as numerous as our newscasts would have us believe.
