This health-care summit was a bad idea for the Democrats for this reason: They have long benefited from a perception — a perception greatly abetted by the media: The Republicans don’t care about health care, they don’t know about health care, they are the Party of No. All the ideas and caring are on the Democratic side.
It is not so, and it has never been so. And now everybody knows it.
Additionally, after the inept performace by Pelosi, Reid and Gang; and after the bloviating and condescending performance by The One, people may now begin to have an inkling of where the Democrats intend to take health care in this country.
