It's to hurt our president and it's to change the Congress
Imagine the effrontery?
People who want to change the political landscape need to be .."looked into"
If you seek political change and redress, you are a stooge. But let's not leave it there.Chris Matthews, on Tuesday's Hardball, invited on California Senator Barbara Boxer to dismiss the increasing number of townhall protestors opposed to Obama's liberal agenda as the "angry, and "noisy," "well-dressed middle-class people in pinks and limes...Brooks Brothers Brigade." After playing brief clips from the townhall protests Matthews devoted the first half of his show to knocking down their legitimacy, something Boxer actually instructed Matthews to do, as she urged the MSNBC host: "You, you in the media have to take a look at what's going on here. This is all planned. It's to hurt our president and it's to change the Congress." To which Matthews suggested the grassroots revolt should be ignored, as he depicted the protesters as stooges of the health care industry.
FROM THE WHITE HOUSE...HERE:
Just imagine what Barack Obama would have said about George Bush asking citizens to flag information to the white house which HE might regard as defamatory and 'incorrect'. And he would have been rightThere is a lot of disinformation about health insurance reform out there, spanning from control of personal finances to end of life care. These rumors often travel just below the surface via chain emails or through casual conversation. Since we can't keep track of all of them here at the White House, we're asking for your help. If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
And not to be outdone, Nancy Pelosi is on camera claiming these stoogist, Brooks brothers, protesters are carrying swastikas?
As for information about health care and government just being 'one more competitor' which will not drive out competitors .. WHY IS WALMART SUCCESSFUL?
FLAG THIS you disingenuous, power seeking, arrogant, elitist, MORONS.
Barack Obama said in 2003 what he did and the FULL CONTEXT demonstrates he is engaged today in precisely what he favored in his own words, said in his own time, HONESTLY. Sorry you don't like the truth now, Linda Douglass. Maybe he has changed his mind, but has anyone heard that? Certainly not Barney Frank, or Maxine Waters.
My best wishes for this president have turned from prayerful hope to mild disappointment, to disillusionment, to frank alarm.
The only area he seems to be competent in is cornering opponents politically.
