President Obama is so much smarter and a better communicator than members of Congress in either party. The contrast, side by side, is almost ridiculous. Update: Good example of what I'm talking about: Lamar Alexander contradicts Obama, says that the Congressional Budget Office found that premiums would rise under the Senate's plan. Obama points out, correctly, that Alexander is just wrong. But most the time, this is like watching Lebron James play basketball with a bunch of kids who got cut from the 7th grade basketball team.
LeBron James said Trevor Ariza said LeBron James told him Someone close to Trevor Ariza said LeBron James told Ariza he would be staying in Cleveland beyond next summer, when he can become a free agent. That anonymous third-hand story, however, has now been refuted by an anonymous second-hand story, with sources close to James saying that he has made no such commitment. Get used to it, NBA fans. --Christopher Orr
