Michael Moore Tell U-Boat Commander, Wolff Blitzer, Obama Should've Started with Single Payer

I mean you've got to give the guy credit. He really -- he did not come in wanting to fight. He came in saying, you know, we're all Americans here and we need to fix this and we need to put aside this partisan stuff.

The other side didn't want to put it aside. The other side wanted to fight him tooth and nail. And -- and as part of his nice guy thing, he -- he backs a half measure, a public option.

BLITZER: But that might not even...


BLITZER: That might not even make the final bill that he signs....
