Was it his Catholic bishop challenging Patrick on his abortion votes and views?
And Patrick whining about it that helped to contribute to this unopularity??????
Or perhaps its the “health care” issue in general.
Democrats are finding out “Health Care Reform” is the new third rail of politics.
It sunk Clinton and now it is sinking Obama.
When Bush tried SS reform it got him too. However, to his credit, he was smart enough to let go, as was Clinton. Whether or not these things need to be done is not the point. The point is they are political poison.
Obama seems to have no such smarts.
