One Step Forward Two Steps Back: Obama Flip-Flops on Public Plan

I think they need to do some serious message discipline at the White House. Now they are flip-flopping back to the public plan again:

He said in a meeting with reporters Tuesday morning that news stories suggesting that the administration was ready to abandon the public option as it battles to push health care reform through were overblown. The rash of reports began after Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius (seh-BEEL'-yuhs) appeared to signal the president was open to health care cooperatives as an alternative.

So was Sebelius talking off the cuff or was it a feeler balloon to see what the far left would do? My guess is that everything at the White House is in chaos and everyone needs to get some sleep.

Going back and forth on the public plan simply makes them look indecisive and cannot agree on anything. I hate to see their jumbled response if Israel strikes the nuclear plants in Iran or something really serious.
