Blue Commonwealth has an interesting take on two columns about health care. Unfortunately, Roger Cohen has been staring at the mirror too long to make sense.
The public option, not dead, would amount to recognition of shared interest in each other’s health and of the need to use America’s energies and resources better. It would involve 300 million people linking arms.
Or we can turn away from each other and, like Narcissus, perish in the contemplation of our own reflections.
I don't know how calling health care reform opponents "Narcissus" makes them change their minds. And the tea party movement considers itself many people linking arms to save what's good in the country.
How many thousands linked arms together in Washington last weekend for the CPAC conference. Or the 9/12 marches. Or local tea party gatherings.
If President Obama says "my way or the highway" with health care reform, he'd better to prepared to be standing on the side of the road with salt spray splattering him and his sign back to Chicago.
