The White House has a slideshow up of Obama's furrowed brow in various positions along the path to health care.

"Reps. Steve King (R-Iowa) and Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) plan bills seeking to repeal health reform as was finally passed by the House yesterday, and Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) plans a similar bill in the Senate."
Let the rehabilitation of Obama, Fearless Leader commence.
Ezra Klein makes the stimulus pitch for health care. "Hey, things woulda been worse if we'd done nothing!" That's always been so convincing when talking about $1 trillion programs.
"Shame on those who have said the election of Obama proves a public taste for this labyrinthine nightmare simply because he campaigned on reform. Everybody wants reform of our vastly imperfect health care system. But if Obama had run on a pledge to bring us this specific bill, even a lethargic John McCain would have beaten him."
Fox News actually does a story on conflicting claims and lays out evidence about alleged racial slurs and spitting incidents at this weekend's Tea Party. This will somehow prove it's not a real new organization, because the job of a real news organization is to call a crowd of thousands racist based on reports of several incidents, none of which were caught on tape despite the presence of several video cameras.
Good news: The president will speak about health care today.
Paul Ryan is getting the rest of the Hill in shape. Proactive for the Party of No, no? "I keep my body fat between 6 and 8 percent."
