Readers' forum: Red flag on health care

In a Nashua, N.H., town hall meeting, President Barack Obama said, with regard to his party's unwieldy health care bill, "We're essentially on the 5-yard line, so we've had to go into overtime, but we are now in the red zone. We've got to punch it through."

If you are on the 5-yard line during overtime — kick a field goal! Common sense trumps audacity.

The Obama administration is in the "red zone" alright: red ink, red tape, red guard and one big red flag.
