Colts look to make smooth O-coordinator transition

There are 29 comments on the TwinCities.com story from Mar 23, 2010, titled Colts look to make smooth O-coordinator transition. In it, TwinCities.com reports that:

The only thing worse than winning ugly is losing uglier. The Democrats' ungainly march toward a victory on health care reform Sunday night provoked a graceless response from angry House Republicans, who shouted insults across the chamber, encouraged outbursts from the galleries, brandished "Kill the bill" placards from the Speaker's Balcony and, ...

Your news headline reveals the PP editorial slant: "Was GOP response ugly politics or reaction to Dems' arrogance?" There was NO Democratic arrogance. Barack Obama won the 2008 election fairly and squarely (unlike the 2000 election of Bush!). He had the mandate to move on a BROAD healthcare reform bill. For 14 months, the GOP implied that it wanted its ideas incorporated into the healthcare debate. The GOP was included in discussions marking up the bill in both Senate and House committees. More than 130 substantive GOP changes were adopted. The more I tried to find points of agreement with Republicans, the more I realized that I was hearing only half-truths, distortions, or just plain lies about the effects of the Democrat's healthcare plan.
Along the way, the GOP responded to the offer of bi-partisanship with "just say no" and variations of the "We want Barack Obama to fail" theme. The parliamentary tactic of reconciliation is now being used as a last resort to move this landmark law forward. This law will benefit all Americans. In the past, when the Republicans used reconciliation during their majorities in Congress, it was used for tax cuts mainly benefiting the rich. In the coming days, I only hope the necessary changes to the new law are passed in the Senate to make it an even better bill. I am so glad that this law has been passed!

I would disagree with you that the conservative movement is a radical one, although, I understand that to be a convenient position for someone of your ideology. In truth, the conservative movemen is largely mainstream middle Americans that believe in limited taxes and limited size/scope of government. Traditional partisan leaders and constiuencies are threatened by the notion that another movement could attrack enough support to usurp their power. As a result, they do their best to discredit the movement and brand them as radicals such as you have. They'll magnify the actions of 10 people as if they reflect the credibility of the millions of others supporting the cause or they'll come out suggesting that limited size/scope of government translates to no national security, roads, police/fire, etc... Basically nonsensical stuff that only those who are desparate to cling to their partsanship will believe.
Understanding your position, we are of different mindsets so I won't bother debating what a "good" solution to the Health Care crisis would be. I'll simply say that conservatives believe in a market based approach as is the traditional role of governmet to regulate. Despite the retorts to this position, it is not ideological more it is practicle in the context of a free market system based on capitalism which is and always has been the US economic model. It is not possible to portray that to those steeped in socialistic ideology as they fundamentally disagree with regulated free market capitalism even though they cannot point to robust and hollistic success of any socialistic economic model.
I have a feeling my thoughts aren't to far from yours on this subject.

What you describe as conservative beliefs, are actually the core beliefs of the republican party.
I said the conservatives are becoming radical, because, in my opinion, the ultra conservative wing of the republican party is becoming more radical.

I firmly believe in the republican values, and continue to consider myself a republican. I have voted republican in every election since 1988.

But, the so called "neo-cons" are driving a wedge in the republican party, and moving away from the core beliefs.

And that will hurt us.

MANDATE? How then did you explain the recent elections in New Jersey, Virginia and, above all, in Ted Kennedy-Land?
How then will you explain to yourself what shall happen on the night of November 2 when the pent-up revulsion of the American people will surpass your current joy?

I think it is right that the Dem's are going to see a difference in their seats this fall because of this bill. I think that a large number of "Say no to everything" Republicans will be sent home because the American public is fed up with their of the money, for the money, and by the money philosophy. They would not vote to outlaw murder if such a law was introduced by anyone but one of their own. Wake up! The American people are.

Nice hatchet-job reporting, morons...
He looked and sounded like exactly what he was, trailer park trash Republican that wanted some publicity at all costs. The guy is a piece of crap and all your excuses just make you sound like him.

Does it matter? He waited until an anti-abortion supporter went up to speak, do not tell me that the two are unrelated. Rep. Randy Neugebauer did it to be mean, so even if that is not what he was saying, that IS what he intended it to mean.
