From Althouse: Ann Althouse And Dayo Olopade Discuss Health Insurance

Full post here. (Click on the 2nd video for more.)

Has the moral case been made by the left for a universal plan that would overcome the opposition?  Does such moral reasoning transcend the economic arguments,political talking points, and ideology of those who seek a universal plan…uniting Americans around the problems we have?

So far, I don’t think so.

I’m still willing to grant Obama leeway in overcoming partisanship,  which I think is a worthy moral goal, though it’s a goal with its roots in the day to day, messy realities of politics (pork, personal attacks etc.).  As the discussion above highlights, if it means granting this much leeway to leftism as Olopade represents that it does, then it’s not enough for me.

  1. “Hi:

    Two things

    1) I’d like your permission to (re)print your article on Fareed Zakaria for our website

    2) I was hoping we could use your ‘scribing’ talent for our website.

    The Best Shows Youre Not Watching (dot) com [all one word]

    ‘The Clone Wars’ is one of our featured shows. We’re hoping to round up a few people who can occasionally contribute perspective (via an article/blog) on the shows – maybe a recent episode, future direction, plot shortcomings etc.

    What’s in it for you?
    Primarily a larger audience back channeled to your blog. We don’t pay but the site has a lot of promise and we’re pretty excited about getting it off the ground. Let me know what you think.

    Thanks
