If TPM is correct here than this is the first genuine off the shelf unmodified criticism I can make of Obama, right now, he should be leading instead of taking a hands off aproach and letting the dems run around like chickens with their heads cut off. If there's one thing that's been empirically proven, its that time is the enemy of HCR.
The sooner the house bounces the senate HCR bill, the better. Obama should calmly but delibritly schedule a caucus meeting give one of his world class speeches, and then they should vote on the damn thing and get it out. The other things we want can be done by reconciliation.
