It’s Tuesday and potential Healthcaremegeddon is only a couple of days away.
- Obama is pushing back on the “private sector is doing fine” gaffe. Finally. The statement was ill-advised but not wrong and it’s time the Obama campaign decided not to shy away from true statements.

- Get ready for a laugh. Hugh Hewitt serves up a big ball of illogical claptrap. Apparently, progressives who held to the belief that the plain language of the commerce clause, as upheld by the Supreme Court for over 100 years, are living in an ill-informed echo chamber. Conservatives are better informed for ignoring “law” and “history” and “their own most Right wing judges.” Hewitt fails to articulate any reason why the mandate violates the commerce clause — he just says it is. I guess he’s waiting for the conservative Supreme Court Justices to concoct the arguments he needs out of whole cloth.
