Yes, the health care bill sucks. But spare me the "Obama is exactly like Bush" bullshit.

Yes, the Democratic Party is too beholden to corporate interests, and yes, Obama has done nothing to change that.

But would this happen under George W. Bush?
The deal [in Copenhagen] came after a dramatic moment in which Mr. Obama burst into a meeting of the Chinese, Indian and Brazilian leaders, according to senior administration officials. Chinese protocol officers noisily protested, and Mr. Obama said he did not want them negotiating in secret. The intrusion led to new talks that cemented key terms of the deal, American officials said.
Newsflash: Bush wouldn't have gone to Copenhagen.
