Frank Rich does gets this part right:
As no less a conservative authority than The Wall Street Journal editorial page last week, the bill's prototype is the health care legislation Mitt Romney signed into law in Massachusetts. It contains what used to be consider Republican ideas.
"what USED to be considered" - Jeebus, Obama's health care bill is STILL a Republican idea that health insurance companies everywhere must be in great celebration over right now, (socialism, my ass because there has never been a more capitalist, corporate friendly idea, ever) and it's all back-up no less by the unforgiving IRS goons.
And now it appears that Obama is going to:
"open up new vast expanses of water along the Atlantic coastline, the eastern Gulf of Mexico and the north coast of Alaska to oil and natural gas drilling, much of it for the first time, ..."
Can ANWR be far behind? I'm sure that the ever stupid Al Gore is going to get right in line with this wonderful new liberal idea same as those netroots idiots are bound to love it as well. If nobody in the netroots has figured out by now that Obama is not a liberal or a Democrat of any kind - it's because they're every bit as stupid as the those tea party people and that's a fact. Obama never was a liberal - he is a stealth Republican who doesn't have a liberal bone in his body.
Does anyone remember that Obama wis supposed get Americans OUT of Iraq in three more months from now?
