Saxby Chambliss, whose name I haven’t heard once in the health care debate this year, has some advice for Obama:
Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-GA) said today that, because of angry town hallers and the like, President Obama should show “humility” when he speaks to Congress Wednesday night.
“What you’re seeing is folks on my side anxious to see what the president has to say tomorrow night,” Chambliss said. “I think he’s gonna have to express some humility based on what we’ve seen around the country this August and that’s not his inclination.”
Or what? You’ll all vote no? Dick Armey and Freedomworks will pay for a wingnut bus across the country? Sarah Palin’s ghostwriter will scribble something barely legible on Facebook? You’ll hold your breath? What exactly are you all going to do? You’ve already cranked up the crazy to max.
You know, there is a really rowdy debate about the future of health care going on, but it is all happening internally inside the Democratic party with occasional input from Olympia Snowe. All the Republicans are doing are throwing spitballs and making lame threats, although in fairness, Chuck Grassley does show up on TV every now and then to debate the position he had 24 hours earlier.
At any rate, I guess we should just be happy Saxby didn’t channel fellow Georgian Lynn Westmoreland and tell Obama he better not be uppity.
