Why Am I Not Encouraged?

I can’t remember the last time one of Harry’s guarantees didn’t turn out to be complete bullshit – he’s like the anti-Namath.  Worse yet, he even backed off on his own guarantee to echo Obama’s weasel words on the public option:

[O]n Thursday Reid reportedly told a conference call of Nevadans that: “We are going to have a public option before this bill goes to the president’s desk.”

“I believe the public option is so vitally important to create a level playing field and prevent the insurance companies from taking advantage of us,” Reid added.

UPDATE: Reid’s office clarifies his remarks in a statement sent over from an aide to the Senator.

“Sen. Reid believes that health insurance reform must include a mechanism to keep insurers honest, create competition and keep costs down,” the statement reads. “He feels that the public option is the best way to do that. While we don’t know exactly what that option will look like, Sen. Reid, working with President Obama, will ensure that whatever is included in the final bill does just that.”

What could possibly go wrong?
