Dodging the Real Issues

Why all of the dodging of the real issues? seems to me that focusing on alleged racist teabagers is irrelevant. Yes some are racist. So what? How is that relevant to the public option? Focusing on how fat or how few the tea baggers were is also just a dodge to avoid the real issues. Same thing with how wealthy Dick Armey is....who cares? and how is that relevant to the HC debate?

Take away all of this smoke and mirrors and what do you have that supports a public option? Tons of emotion. And emotion that seems to lack any focus.

If they would focus on a) Should the Fed's be doing this? i.e. what in the Constitution supports the Public Option? b) Will it work? and c) Can we afford it? ... if they would focus on these issues, then maybe they'd have a chance. But instead they chose to dodge the core issues.

I wonder why?
