Right now the President is preparing to give his most recent speech on the great health care debate of 2009. I have seen some of his remarks that have been released by the White House and for my money, he sounds angry and fed up. You know how sometimes you read an email and you wonder if the person who wrote it was angry or kidding? That’s how I felt while I was reading his speech. There’s nothing new in it factually, just the tone of a man who has finally lost his patience with the country.
I wanted to put it on record before the speech that this was going to be the final nail in the coffin of the health care debate. Now that I’ve had a chance to see some of his comments, I’m more convinced than ever that this will be seen as the final stand for Obama on this matter. They may still pass it, but it will be in spite of the will of the people.
For the record though, the success or failure of this speech will depend totally on how he delivers it. If he delivers it the way it reads, his entire Presidency may in fact be over. Or. . . I could be wrong!
