More spin

Everyone is going to put his own spin on the health summit.
Liberals saw one thing, conservatives another.
What I saw was a meeting dominated by Democrats, who used up most of the time and expressed no real interest in considering Republican ideas.
Democrats did their best to paint Republicans as intransigent. They were aided by the airhead Shepard Smith on Fox News, who raged at Sen. John Thune about the Republicans not being willing to compromise.
Here's the problem. Liberals want to go in one direction and conservatives want to go in the other. Compromise as envisioned by liberals and Smith means conservatives should go halfway in the direction liberals want to go.
That is not compromise. That is surrender. And conservatives should not surrender because they are right.
Polls show the American people agree on that point.
