I just love being right! Strange how the all of the Obamatrons have virtually disappeared from this site. There used to be a day, about 6 weeks ago, that you couldn't criticize "The One" without a virtual torrent of defenders coming to his aid - deriding those of us with intelligence as "racists, bigots and haters."

"He is still opposed to it," Romer said during an appearance on NBC's "Meet the Press." "He certainly was very critical and very skeptical of it [during the campaign]. It is certainly not in our [budget] proposal. We have proposed other ways to deal with health care and to fund it. So it is not something he supports."
