Reacting to a newly released ABC News/Washington
Post poll which found 50 percent opposed to the just-passed health
bill versus 46 percent in favor of it, on ABC's This Week, Mississippi's
Republican Governor, Haley Barbour, quipped:
I am surprised that the numbers in the Washington Post poll weren't better. I mean, since this thing passed last weekend, we've been seeing the longest wet kiss in political history given to the Obama administration by the liberal media elite and every day it goes by, it's sloppier.
That prompted a chuckle from host Jake Tapper, before the other
guest, Pennsylvania's Democratic Governor, Ed Rendell, countered: "I don't
know what Haley watches. I don't know what channels Haley watches, but
that's a lousy way to kiss, boy because it's getting pounded in the
media, a lot of the media is pounding the bill."
Barbour's better in touch with reality.
