President To Visit NC

The White House says President Barack Obama is coming to North Carolina to discuss his health care plans as he tries to gather public support to pass his proposals this year.

Obama spokesman Robert Gibbs said Friday that Obama will travel
Wednesday to Raleigh to discuss the issue. The White House didn't
provide any other details.

Obama has been trying to push through a massive overhaul of the
nation's health care system. But he's encountered skepticism from
members of Congress and the public who are concerned about the
costs.

The Democrat visited Camp Lejeune in February, when he talked
about his plans to withdraw troops from Iraq.

    Who thought Ron Paul was going to win? Everyone knew Obama was going to win because of his celebrity. Funny thing about that in America is when it wears off we love to see them fall flat on their face. His approval is already slipping and it will be below 40% by December. If healthcare passes it will be below 30%.

    Are Lavon and Barlow the same person? They are both so enamored of the teleprompter reader, I can't tell which is which.

    Just 3 and a half years left of this joke. Can't wait for next year. It already looks like Republicans are going to pick up Go. seat this year and 2010 is going to be a big one. 80 Democratic seats are now in play.

    He came, he talked a long time, and like always said nothing of substance. Some of the obuma koolaid drinkers got tinglely in their thighs, but all he has to do is blather to get them to do that.

    If obama screws up,will it be his white side at fault or black side.But we all know what that answer is.

    So bleeding heart liberals, what has he done in the past or present that you devote so much loyalty to him. Name one thing that has any implication to this great nation.
