Quo Vadis, Mr. President

On Wednesday night, President Obama addressed the Congress about health insurance reform. One thing I’m wondering is how many Americans didn’t listen?

More particularly, how many Americans are opinionated on the “against” side and listen to talk radio or any other conservative media and didn’t listen?

I listened to most of President G. W. Bush’s addresses. I very often disagreed with him, but I received the unfiltered message he was delivering.

How many Americans will continue to fight against change yet listen only to one side of the debate? (To call it a debate is questionable.) And how many will continue to fight against invisible ghosts? They’re being riled up against something that doesn’t exist and they’re in such a ferver they don’t hear rational people trying to explain the debate to them.

I hope it succeeds in getting things moving.
