Episode 50 – Obama Health Care Speech to Congress: Reality Check

cropped-politalk-banner-770x140.jpg

Glenn and Jeff react almost immediately to President Obama’s speech to Congress, putting the speech in context, reminding listeners what they should watch from the President and Congress over the next week, and explaining the politics and policy ramifications of the speech.  They offer praise for the broad objectives met through the speech, dive deep into a discussion on the proposed health care exchanges and the effect on small business. Jeff reacts strongly to Congressman Wilson’s outrageous outburst during the President’s discussion on immigrants and Glenn takes heed of President Obama’s closing words and offers his strong views on the need for more reasoned and rational debate of issues. Always entertaining and informative, it’s PoliTalk — your weekly political podcast.

  1. Hey, I missed your episode when you excoriated the Democrats for booing and hissing during Bush’s state of the union speech, or when Harry Reid called Bush a liar on the Senate floor. Reference please.

  2. Sam, the reason why you “missed” our episode that “excoriated the Democrats for booing and hissing during Bush’s state of the union speech [&] when Harry Reid called Bush a liar on the Senate floor” is that both incidents took place in 2004/5. Our first episode was in July of 2008. You would have figured that out if you actually listened to ANY of our shows. So please, if you are going to comment on a show we do, at least have the decency to listen to it.

    As for me, I don’t care for the incidents that you mentioned any more than that of Joe Wilson’s outburst. However, shouting “You Lie” to a President during a joint session of Congress when you have your facts wrong not only exceeds the other two examples in distastefulness, it also shows ignorance of the part of the shouter. My advice to both him and you is to get your facts straight before you decide to comment.

  3. I love your podcasts. Excellent commentary and give/take. PoliTalk is my new #1 Favorite source of political commentary.
