Compare & Contrast

Senator Jim Webb (D-Va), on January 11, 2011, as reported in the Virginian-Pilot:
The Obama administration "did a really terrible job handling health care reform," he said, because the president relied on Congress to draft a plan.

"You can't turn something that complicated loose on the United States Congress," he said, adding that the resulting debate led to great public confusion.
Senator Jim Webb (D-Va), on December 24, 2009, voting on H.R. 3590, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act:
Sounds like Webb was for Obamacare before he was against it. As Jennifer Rubin observes:
So is he saying he didn't know how bad the bill was, or is he saying he cast a bad vote? Neither answer is a winner.

Wait, I thought the US Congress were our betters and the cognitive elite. Are you saying - gasp - that they aren't smart enough to overhaul our health care system?
