Wow, some rationale and measured talk on health care reform without the usual hyperbole and platitudes heard in the national debate on the issue.
Republican Matt Doheny has taken a stab at explaining where he would like to see the nation go if and when ObamaCare was repealed. I think there is a market for calm voices because I for one am tiring of the FOX-MSNBC shouting match....And if someone like me is sick of it, you know its over the top.
Doheny has the blessing of being a smart guy who understands the core issues and rhetorically can cut to the bone if he has to (obviously he has an idealogical bent which some disagree with). Like most candidates, he runs the risk of having his message muddled by the filter of political professionals, which their bushel baskets of BS, cliches and talking points.
Unfortunately there are few arenas for candidates to talk directly to voters. I once urged the candidate to adopt those old Perot flip chart style commercials which were very effective until the candidate imploded for other reasons.
That idea was dismissed as the incoherent ramblings of someone around politics for too long.
