Listening to soundbites from Dubya’s speech in Medford, where he sticks to his script…

“Government run healthcare” means… what? Poor-quality health care, restrictions, rationing, less choice, more controls.

This doesn’t say much for Medicare, Medicaid and VA, does it? I wonder what this says about Bush’s prescription drug program for seniors? If I were in one of these programs, should I feel comforted?

I was struck by the pattern in Bush’s speech:

Bush — soundbite
audience — wild applause
Bush — smirk

Lather, rinse, repeat…

Does Dubya realize that there’s nobody there but those who have been willing to sign a pledge of faithfulness?
