No Brit - Here's What Hume Said
The president would have won some GOP votes for ObamaCare if only some Republican ideas had been integrated into the bill, Brit Hume said yesterday.
I actually in my life have never seen anything like this. I've never seen a bill with this much consequence rammed through by one party alone. And it raised questions about the legitimacy of the measure from the start and those questions persist today.
And that is why, even with the polls that you and Juan cited and there are others that show something quite different, the thing remains up in the air and I think Bill is right in thinking that it will be a burden to this presidency.
I hope the GOP wouldn't have been quite so pliable - and it's hard to imagine that the left would have held if there were more bones thrown to the right - but we'll never know if Hume is correct.
