“Would you feel the same way if you were making $40,000? Or if that was your income? Because that’s the reality for a lot of folks” —Obama Takes Dr. Barrasso To Medical School (VIDEO) | TPMDC
“I think maybe it’s time we all show a little gratitude to John McCain. I know it’s popular to bemoan the Arizona Senator’s churlish behavior and obvious bitterness, particularly in the last year, but I think what he did today at the “Health Care Summit” shows just how much he loves this country. John McCain knows that, in a time of rising unemployment, economic uncertainty, and a political system which seems badly broken, the American people are nervous to the point of questioning their own judgment. So I think it’s fairly admirable that McCain went in front of the television cameras today and did his very best to reassure the majority of his fellow citizens that when they went to the polls back in November 2008 they made exactly the right choice. Thank you, John McCain.” —John McCain Helps Heal Some Wounds | The Awl (via peterwknox) (via apsies)
