Obama's Precipice !

"From the discussions we had, it's clear that we are on the precipice of an achievement that's eluded Congresses and presidents for generations -- an achievement that will touch the lives of nearly every American'' - that would be the passage of a health-care overhaul offering health insurance to tens of millions of uninsured Americans.

~Obama yesterday

ok! lets see what "precipice" means?

MIRIAM-WEBSTER DICTIONARY: "1: a very steep or overhanging place; 2: a hazardous situation; broadly : brink"

" Given the tax hikes, debt increases, and drastic cuts to Medicare in the Democrats' bill, it's an apt metaphor, since to most people, "precipice" means the edge of a dangerous cliff. Miriam-Webster's definition: 1 : a very steep or overhanging place; 2 : a hazardous situation; broadly : brink. ''

-- House Republican Leader John Boehner's office.

Mr. President, it's time to stop reading off your teleprompters ! You are not making sense anymore!
