Power Line report: early comments looked good for Republicans

A report on Power Line (see link below) gave some quotes from CNN’s Gergen, Borger and Blitzer (shown here in part).

CNN’s David Gergen:

The folks in the White House must be kicking themselves right now.

They thought that coming out of Baltimore when the President went in and was mesmerizing and commanding in front of House Republicans that he could do that again here today. That would change public opinion about their health care bill and they can go on to victory. Just the opposite has happened.

CNN's Gloria Borger:

The Republicans have been very effective today. They really did come to play. They were very smart ... and I think did a very good job.

CNN's Wolf Blitzer:

It looks like the Republicans certainly showed up ready to play.

The Hill's A.B. Stoddard:

I think we need to start out by acknowledging Republicans brought their 'A Team.'

I thought today the Democrats were pretty much on their knees.

Comments from the Katzenjammer Kids on MSNBC will be different. The bottom rated cable channel shows of Chris Matthews, Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow will probably say that the Democrats came in second and the Republicans came in next to last.

The Republicans really do have a good case. They kept presenting good fresh ideas from knowledgeable people including Congressmen who are medical doctors.

The Democrats had to rely on Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden who, as Power Line says, were “not fresh, attractive, or especially bright.”
