Levi Johnston Poses Nude

Unless a massive asteroid strikes the Earth, or all known volcanoes erupt in a fiery conflagration, or the entire stockpile of nuclear weapons explodes – Americans will not be spared yet another Obama publicity stunt speech on September 9.

Lord, please have mercy. Unleash the asteroids.

* * * * *

The invitation for Obama to oppress the nation in yet another prime time speech to a joint session of Congress came from Speaker Pelosi and Majority Leader Reid.

Our nation is closer than ever to achieving health insurance reform that will lower costs, retain choice, improve quality and expand coverage. We are committed to reaching this goal.

We would like to invite you to address a Joint Session of the Congress on Wednesday, September 9, 2009 on health insurance reform.

As can be seen from the invitation, health care reform is now officially gone, to be replaced with health insurance reform. Obama had already signaled the shift from care to insurance in earlier Olympian pronouncements but now it is clear that Pelosi and Reid have accepted the shift as well.

“Care” has been euthanized. And increasingly it appears the “public option” has been euthanized as well. None of this comes as a surprise to readers of Big Pink who know universal health care died in Denver in August 2008.

* * * * *

What will Obama bore the nation with?

The content of Obama’s presentation is still being debated in the West Wing. Aides have discussed whether to stick to broad principles, or to send specific legislative language to Capitol Hill. Some hybrid is likely, the officials said.

It would be better to just send the TelePrompter and leave Barack Obama on vacation after vacation. With a TelePrompter only address Americans will not be subjected to the additional pain of having to see Obama.

No such luck however as a TelePrompter only speech. Next week Barack Obama will stage yet another series of publicity stunts. It will be the same circus tent with the same circus show and the same Corrupt Chicago Circus Clown fooling the same circus rubes.

The evidence has mounted to the size of the Grand Tetons – Obama serves the same corrupt national interests he served in Chicago. Only fools will believe whatever it is that Obama says at next week’s publicity stunt.

We would watch next week if something of interest would happen. If Obama was at all merciful he would forgo his usual circus act and entertain America. He could juggle, make jokes about how ungrateful Michelle Obama is, or even show some more of Obama’s Wee Wee. It’s the least he could do, the very least.

Obama could talk about the latest gossip about Oprah to get ratings. But if Obama really wants to have a ratings grabber he would talk about Levi Johnston. Levi Johnston is the “sex on a stick” beefcake man/boy who managed the oh-so-difficult task of fathering a child. The man/boy lucked out in that the mother of his child is herself a child of former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. Now Levi Johnston is threatening to bare all in Playgirl magazine not realizing the readership is primarily gay men.



Many will mock the clownish man/boy from Alaska. But here at Big Pink we’ll give Levi his due. At least Levi will show America what he’s got.

Obama will continue to hide from America what he is not – an experienced leader of core Democratic principles who is willing to fight for Americans.

  1. I don’t think Obama can turn the health care debate in his favor. Once you lose enough of the public on an issue like this, it’s virtually impossible to regain the momentum. One of his problems is, health care wasn’t even a fundamental part of his campaign. He just adopted it to “me too” Hillary.

  2. It will be difficult to sway the people now, as many have concepts they accept as truths in their minds, they have fears, and they do not think the Legislative body reads the legislation, nor does OO. Therefore, how can you pass something so important, when nobody seems to know what it is.

    So on 9 September we will know what it is. Like others have said, a day late and a dollar short.

    God this job is hard. Grand Canyon, Martha’s Vineyard (so rudely interrupted by Ted), and now Camp David.

  4. Tonight googling to find my beloved Hillary Pin (which I could not), I ended up on a button site that had many many pages of buttons for the 2008 campaign. I will not give that site here, as I do not want to promote it. What upset me was the majority of those bottons portrayed Palin in a horrible sexual manner, time after time. Oh they had some crap on HRC also, but really not in that quantity, and some were things like horns. Palins were so sexual, I felt the need to post my protest here.

    WE MUST STOP THIS. I FELT LIKE I WAS WITNESSING HER RAPE. IT IS SO UNCALLED FOR.

  5. The U.N. has been infiltrated by “stupids”

    ———————-

    From the Simon Wiesenthal online newsletter:

    Karen Abu Zayd, the commissioner-general of UNRWA, sounded very much like a Hamas official when she said at a press conference, “I can refute allegations that the UN school curriculum includes anything about the Holocaust… we focus on human rights in curriculum…and the murder of six million Jews and five million other undesirables…is not a human rights issue.”

    And John Ging, UNRWA’s Gaza Director, mocked UN policy when he declared, “There is no intention to integrate materials and topics [on the Holocaust] that are inconsistent with the desire of Palestinian society.”

    Both UNRWA officials were responding to protests demanding that UNRWA drop the curriculum because, “the refugee camps committees categorically refuse to let our children be taught this lie created by the Jews and intensified by their media.”

  6. Reform heath insurance, not healthcare. Such arrogance and AUDACITY. So he brainwashes kids on the 8th and bamboozles their parents, grandparents the next evening. ENOUGH ALREADY! Keep the kids home on the 8th, and BOYCOTT ALL AIRWAVES ON THE 9th to have NO VIEWERSHIP. This “repackaged” message insults any citizen with half a brain. Nothing but a “Trojan Horse” labeled as co-ops. How stupid do they think we are (Last year THEY who elected him – PRETTY DAMN STUPID)

    As far as Levi Johnston – Palin & her family need to drag his drug-infested family and his “Burt Reynolds” self to a floggin’ in the town square. EXPOSE (not to be a pun) what TRASH Levi and his family are. Pray he does pose nude and every other thing that makes HIM the laughing stock. Whatever it takes to keep he and his family AWAY from the child. Also, his allowance of BIG Media to turn him into a caricature couldn’t happen soon enough. His “fed narratives” by Big Media meant to demean Palin has to be attacked and not allowed to stand in some sort of way. Unfortunately you can only ignore the slander so long then you have to put the little prick in his place. AND find out who’s bankrolling him. Blow that whistle Palin.

  7. NMF, have you looked on ebay and have you ran an ad in craiglist. THere’s lots of stuff on those sites.

    Admin, thankyou for that article because it told me it doesnt make a difference what your station in life is, you can wind up with a prick for a son in law. I have two so far. That video will make people want to vote for Sarah and they will empathisize with her. Obama and his minions have crucified every woman that got in his way. I hope the women of this country will unite against this bullshit.

    That little prick should and will get his in the end. He has a son, and that will hurt him later on in life.

  8. the countdown begins….

    Any bets how many times the name “teddy kennedy” will be mentioned in the speech!!!!!!1

  9. Admin,

    This speech of his, at the beginning of a new television season, makes no sense to me in that whichever networks are going to air it, must be willing to lose lots of money and ratings.

  10. This speech is suppose to groundbreaking, the only groundbreaking information I am interested in is that he is retiring from public office.

  11. Groundbreaking speech? I doubt it. The plan stinks in its present form and the only people lapping it up, will be the Congress critters.

    I wouldn’t be surprise if BO envoked TK’s name at least 20 times. Afterall, the bill is going to be named after him.

  12. Well if his teleprompter is giving another speech, it must be because bambi and his sicko buddies are running very very scared. This seems to be the only solution they have even if it is a worn out one.

  13. JanH

    It is what worked during the campaign, and they really don’t realize why it does not work now. In fact all of their strong arm tactics are not working (bussing in people, hitting the media in the home voting areas of those that dis-agree). Negotiating, reaching out to the opposition, understanding what direction the country must take, and taking your position in a firm matter, and giving out directions, what is that crap.

    Was that in the job description OO did not read?

  14. Where Ted Kennedy is concerned, the normal rule of de mortiums nil nisi bonum–say nothing ill of the dead applies, if and only if no one opens the door. It they want to invoke his name and impute god like qualities qualities to him which he never had in life, and ignore the debauchery which continued into his late 50s then I say it is fair game for rebuttal. There is a huge difference between the truth and propaganda.

  15. Does anyone here know what has happened to TexasDarlin blog? I can’t even access her old stuff, I guess theyve taken everything off?

    The problem is that Obama risks alienating either the right or left wing of his party by staking out a clear position on the public plan.

    And whomever he irks will walk up to the microphones in the Capitol Rotunda and blast away, drowning out the message of party comity he’ll try to project with the speech. He’s also likely to take heat if he tries to dodge.

    Pelosi, for one, is still committed to the public option and believes no bill can pass her chamber without it, according to several Democratic sources.

    “They have been messaging the public option as if Sybil has been in charge,” said Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) expressing widespread liberal disgust at the White House’s mixed messages on the plan.

    But comments from senior White House aides to POLITICO that the president does not plan to insist on a public option once again served as a reminder that the White House could be in for a rough September. [snip]

    “If the president says, ‘Here is what I need in the bill,’ and it doesn’t include the public option, there will be no other way to interpret it than it was a retreat,” added Weiner (D-N.Y.) said.

    “I speak for a lot of members who are allies of the president. We are prepared to take our lumps to get this important policy done. But I don’t like this sense of us charging up the hill, and not only is the president not leading us, but he is not on the hill with us.” [snip]

    Gerald Shea, a top lobbyist for the AFL-CIO, said in an interview Wednesday that the public option is one of three “absolute musts” in the bill because lowering health care costs is a “do-or-die” issue for union members. The AFL-CIO’s incoming president, Richard Trumka, told reporters this week that lawmakers could not count on the union’s support if they abandon the public option.

  17. Apparently the parents of these kids that will be forced to watch Obama are pist off and are causing a big stink. Especially those on the extreme right wing. They don’t want their children subjected to a socialist, marxist speech. They are throwing a fit here in Texas and have already given the parents the right opt out on the speech.

    Gee, this must really hurt Obama feelings. He wants so much to be a Kennedy, he is NO JFK.

  18. I think if obama uses Ted Kennedy ad nauseum in the next little while, it will be a huge sign of desperation. I think it will also turn a lot of people against him who are still on the fence.

  19. So who wins? The insurance companies who do not want a public option? Pelosi who gives lip service to a public option? The unions? The pharmaceutical companies? Hmmmm…………………BO has already made a deal with the devil and he cannot and won’t back off that promise. If he does, his funding may be gone from the corporate interests. So, his actions or lack of, will force a vote in Congress, and a crappy pork laden bill for the insurance and pharmaceutical companies will be passed. Remember, Baucus, et al, will not let BO fail, even if the bill is bad. IMHO.

    When the head of the California Nurses Association met with Baucus, she was told that single payer was off the table and the most important thing, was for a health insurance bill to pass, so that BO would have a success. She penned an article in June, in which, after giving BO some praise, said that he does not have the political courage to push for a single payer system. Turns out to be quite true, but we knew that all along, didn’t we?

  20. Hey, If obama’s “big speech” about health (something) reform, hey even he’s not sure what should be and what can be reformed, is going to be Sep 9th, isn’t that date 9/9/9?

    Isn’t that like 666, the sign of the Devil?

    &&&&

    Again, this is what we said all along. As a candidate, Obama’s slithery eel act could be sold by the compliant media whores with their own vested interests (Gwen Ifill: “I’ll make a ton of money if Mr. Historic is elected, and not enough to buy a sandwich if he loses”).

    But once Obama was sworn in, and his position had legal standing, suddenly the slithery eel act didn’t work. All the players came to play, demanding that the president do this or that. No more hypotheticals.

    At that point, the jig was up. The con no longer works. Yet they persist in retrying methods that worked as a candidate.

    The definition of insanity….

    Of course, no one will watch this. Any network head that lets the Dictator hog the airways again and costs the shareholders precious dollars is going to have a lot of ‘splaining to do…and those heads’ heads will roll.

  22. WISDOM FROM WATERMELON HEAD:

    Rove’s final paragraph in his most recent WSJ:

    Presidents always encounter rough patches. What is unusual is how soon Mr. Obama has hit his. He has used up almost all his goodwill in less than nine months, with the hardest work still ahead. At the year’s start, Democrats were cocky. At summer’s end, concern is giving way to despair. A perfect political storm is amassing, and heading straight for Democrats.

    Here’s the link for the whole deal:

    online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052970204731804574388730954342564.html

  23. Rove’s point about Obama rapid tanking reveals the risk that a political party takes when glossing over realities, and electing an incompetent and/or corrupt inexperienced person.

    They gave the keys to the car to a 10 year who can barely look over the dashboard, and whose “driving experience” was sitting in the car when being driven around by their parents.

    Now they’re wondering aloud, “How could he be so ineffective”, “He’s not doing anything”.

    Ha. Ha.

  24. Well he bailed the bankers and the republicans were quiet, car companies a little noise, cap and trade a little more, now hc they are screaming and spreading some of the old lies. THis is what I have trouble with is some of the lies about tort reform, its freaking 1 percent. We have a cap of 250,000 and the freaking Dr.’s are still bitching.
    THe republicans want to blame the people who are mamed, never do they blame the insurance companies for charging an exorbenant rate for malpractice. We all know that insurance companies are a nasty ass group, so why are we not questioning how much they charge for malpractice?

  25. We really need to get those shirts made up that say “Don’t blame me I voted for Hillary” with a big 0 with a slash thru and wake me when its over at the bottom. The republicans are gaining ground with our revolution. We can’t let them steal the Bluedogs thunder. We were the ones that started the first tea parties.

  26. Here’s some more polling news:

    **************

    These are some of the results of The Harris Poll® of 2,498 U.S. adults surveyed
    online between August 10 and 18, 2009 by Harris Interactive®.

    Administration Leaders` Ratings

    The rating of individual leaders in government varies greatly:

    * Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is the only member of the administration to
    have a positive job rating. Just over half of Americans (51%) give her positive
    marks, while 31% give her negative ratings and 18% are not familiar enough with
    her to have an opinion;
    * Vice President Joe Biden is rated more negatively (38%) than positively (33%)
    while 29% are not familiar enough to have an opinion;
    * Just over one-quarter of Americans (28%) give Defense Secretary Robert Gates
    positive ratings while 17% give him negative ones, but a majority (55%) are not
    familiar with him;
    * One in five Americans (20%) rate Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke
    positively, one-quarter (24%) rate his job performance negatively and 56% are
    not familiar enough with him to have an opinion; and,
    * Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner is rated positively by 17% of Americans,
    negatively by 26% and 57% are not familiar with him.

    *******

    Looks relatively good for our girl, but she’s down from 71% a few months ago.

  27. Good morning all: Hillary is doing just fine in the role of SoS and is safely above the fray that has engulfed our country and has spread worldwide.BO i s a bad case of BO to all of our friends around the globe.She has become the untouchable in world politics and rhere is no one else in politics today that is as qualified to lead this country out of the mess that BO has created.When I see the camera shots of his nose held high,his jaw jutting out,I cannot help but think of Benito Mussolini, “Il Duce “.He tried to become Italy’s Adolph Hitler and ended up hung high on a village pole with his mistress at his feet.Caring citizens spoke out but were ignored as trouble makers and subversives.In the end justice prevailed and the country survived.Let MSM continue to ignore and degrade Hillary and her numbers get better and more needed than any one today in this overwhelming and coplex political climate.Time is running out for BO. And the air will soon clear of this great AMerican Mistake.

    BY ABM91 Hillary is our President in waiting.

  28. Good Morning ABM91

    The only way his speech can be ground breaking is if he comes out strongly for a public Opiton, which he will not. They are spreading hyp so that the main channels will cover it. If he comes out for PO he loses the support of the Insurance Co, and gains the support of his base and Independence. If he goes against it, he keeps the Insurance companies and loses the people. In the primary he was not elected by the people, he was elected by tricking the system, and using the money he got from people like the Insurance Companies.

    The people will feel shxt on. The question is what will they do about it.

    She is suffering from what the rest of the Dims have done or failed to do. Since she is not really involved in it, I think she is OK. Anyway, I would not be surprised if they are polling more segments of people they know don’t like her. I don’t trust anyone anymore.

  30. There was speculation above as to how many times Bambi will invoke the name of Letcherous Ted Kennedy in this upcoming canned speech we are all on pins and needles waiting for. Maybe that name works magic for members of congress, maybe it helps him claim to be a member of the family, but it will not bamboozle most of us now. Nor will the hype of corporate media. If he does not clarify his position on the public option, one way or the other he is toast. If he does clarify it then the world will know the answer to the question:

    Question: sir, now that we have finally come to the moment of truth, who do you intend to cheat: the insurance companies you made backroom deals with, or the progressives you made campaign promises to, because you see my friend the two positions are mutually exclusive hence you can no longer have it both ways?

  31. Matthews pathetic effort to rehabilitate Bill in the eyes of the left by pronouncing hem a god is symtomatic of Matthews bipolar condition. Months back he was busy trashing Bill and Hillary. Bill likes the limelight and is willing to do it, but he is hardly the right messenger for the hard left who are the same people who organized against Hillary because they did not like his Presidency. His opinion carries significant weight in many circle but not there, and for Matthews of all people to say to that audience of all people that even though what he said before was not credible but what his is saying now is not only credible because it is the word of god because he is god is symptomatic of a derranged mind. If you look at his expression on the video, Matthews looks like someone who his slightly out of his mind, or as someone said a skull looking for a brain.

  32. White House Withdraws Call for Students to ‘Help’ Obama

    Obama’s plan to inspire the nation’s schoolchildren with a video address next week erupted into controversy.

    Thursday, September 03, 2009

    The Obama administration is rethinking its course recommendations for students ahead of President Obama’s address to the the nation’s schoolchildren next week, rewriting its suggestions to teachers for student assignments on how to “help the president,”

    The Washington Times reported Thursday that presidential aides acknowledged they helped the U.S. Education Department write the suggested assignments, which stirred criticism by many who say Obama is trying to indoctrinate the education system.

    White House aides said the language was supposed to be a inspirational, pro-education message to America’s youths, but its unintended consequences were evident.

    Among the activities initially suggested for pre-K to 6th grade students was to “write letters to themselves about what they can do to help the president.”

    Another assignment for students after hearing the speech was to discuss what “the president wants us to do.”

    foxnews.com/politics/2009/09/03/white-house-withdraws-students-help-obama/

  33. As healthcare reform prepares to either die down or get severely watered down, the WSJ has a useful history of the recent push to change the healthcare system.

    The key point is that Democrats have known for A Long Time that the public would not be receptive to the current proposals, even if they weren’t happy with the existing system.

    A group called the Herndon Alliance — a coalition of liberal health-care groups, unions and patient-advocacy groups created in late 2005 — was only a few months into its work planning a health-insurance overhaul by the time it asked focus groups what they thought of the idea of a government-run plan to compete with private ones.

    The public-option was an article of faith for many in the alliance, but the focus groups’ reactions were sobering. Skepticism ran high. The chief worry: Giving access to inexpensive government insurance to America’s 46 million uninsured would boost costs, or reduce care, for those who were already insured.

    When pollsters told the advocacy groups the public option probably wouldn’t fly, they were told to paper over the problem with a better “message,” according to a participant in the project.

    But obviously they never got a better message, and as we’ve noted several times, The White House made the mistake of letting reform opponents define the debate.

    Still, to get blindsided with so much advanced warning — arguably 15-years worth, given the Hillarycare debacle — reeks of amateur hour. The one justification is if they thought Obama’s political skills were so amazing, that everything else would fall into place, but obviously this was a grave miscalculation
    ———————————

    There you have it!!!!!! Grave miscalculation indeed!!!!

    WH withdraws call for students to ‘help’ Obama

    By Matthew Mosk

    President Obama’s plan to inspire the nation’s schoolchildren with a video address next week erupted into controversy Wednesday, forcing the White House to pull out its eraser and rewrite a government recommendation that teachers nationwide assign students a paper on how to “help the president.”

    Presidential aides acknowledged the White House helped the U.S. Education Department craft the proposal, which immediately was met by fierce criticism from Republicans and conservative organizations who accused Mr. Obama of trying to politicize the education system. White House aides said the language was an honest misunderstanding in what was supposed to be a inspirational, pro-education message to America’s youths.

    Among the activities the government initially suggested for prekindergarten to sixth-grade students: that they ” write letters to themselves about what they can do to help the president.”
    Another task recommended for students immediately after listening to the speech: to engage in a discussion about what “the president wants us to do.”

    The novel curriculum plan brought sharp criticism from conservatives, including some who complained that classrooms were being used to spread political propaganda.

    In response, the White House last night confirmed they were revising the lesson plan that was distributed last week by the U.S. Department of Education. “We’re clarifying that language,” White House spokesman Tommy Vietor said.

    By Wednesday evening, the sentence asking children to think about how they can “help the president” had been replaced. The rewritten line said students should “write letters to themselves about how they can achieve their short-term and long-term education goals. These would be collected and redistributed at an appropriate later date by the teacher to make students accountable to their goals.”

    Mr. Vietor said the reaction to the lesson plan may not have been so strong had the curriculum been circulated after people heard the speech, which he said does not mention any political issues and does not stray from a clear message encouraging children to excel and stay in school.
    The speech is “about the value of education and the importance of staying in school as part of his effort to dramatically cut the dropout rate. It’s not a policy speech,” Mr. Vietor said.

    But the revisions did not appear in time to head off the rapid-fire reaction that spread all day on conservative-oriented talk radio and Web sites. Critics of the president argued that some of the messages included in the ” menu of classroom activities” strayed dangerously close to politicizing the classroom.

    “While I support educating our children to respect both the office of the American president and the value of community service, I do not support using our children as tools to spread liberal propaganda,” said Jim Greer, chairman of the Florida Republican Party.

    The conservative radio host Dana Loesch even urged parents to keep their children home on Tuesday, the day Mr. Obama’s speech is schedule to air.

    Not everyone was outraged by the president’s decision to send a videotaped message to America’s schoolchildren something President George H.W. Bush did 18 years ago, though without the accompanying homework. “I can’t think of anything less partisan than this,” said Mo Elleithee, a Democratic strategist. “It’s admirable that President Obama would challenge our schoolchildren to do their best, and it’s the kind of message that most level-headed Americans can easily get behind.” Mr. Elleithee called the moral outrage ” beyond silly” and said it was ” the kind of hyper-partisanship that people so soundly rejected last November.”

    Longtime political analyst Norman Ornstein said he viewed the strong reaction to Mr. Obama’s speech as a sign of the coarsening of American politics. “The fact that a standard issue speech by a president, with a good, common sense, even conservative message about education, school, hard work and perseverance, is being hit hard by the right tells us how dysfunctional our politics are, how shrill the discourse is getting from the president’s foes, and how some people are blinded from common sense by their visceral hatred for Obama and his side of the aisle,” Mr. Orenstein said.

    The idea of adding a lesson plan to the package of materials being sent to schoolteachers was hatched during meetings between the White House and officials from the Department of Education. The lessons themselves were developed by educators, White House officials said. But some of the assignments, they later conceded, may appear to be inartfully worded without also knowing the context of the speech.

    “Does the speech make you want to do anything?” is one suggested question for the discussion. ” Are we able to do what the president is asking of us?”

    The packet of activities was sent out electronically with an Aug. 26 electronic letter from U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan. Mr. Duncan encourages school administrators to air the presidential broadcast, which was timed to coincide with the start of school for most of the country.

    “The president will challenge students to work hard, set educational goals, and take responsibility for their learning,” Mr. Duncan says in his letter. Of the activities, Mr. Duncan added: “These are ideas developed by and for teachers to help engage students and stimulate discussion on the importance of education in their lives.”

    Boehner, Pelosi skip town halls

    By Kara Rowland

    House Minority Leader John A. Boehner, the face of Republican opposition to Democrats’ health care reform plans, has yet to face voters in a traditional town-hall meeting this summer, instead spending his time bolstering his party’s chances in the 2010 midterm elections.

    Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has also skipped the face-to-face interaction with constituents at town halls, instead spending her public time in August visiting clinics and holding roundtables tailored to “stakeholders” in the health care debate.

    In avoiding the town halls, the two top leaders of the House have both missed out on the kinds of questions that have been asked — or in some cases shouted — at their colleagues during hundreds of events nationwide, as voters grapple with Democrats’ proposed 1,000-plus-page rewrite of the nation’s health care system.

    Boehner spokesman Don Seymour defended the Ohio Republican’s summer schedule as an investment in good government. “As leader, Boehner is leading the fight both in Congress and on the campaign trail against [Democrats’ health care reform plans], helping to raise the resources Republicans need to win next year and offer real reforms that curb government spending, create new jobs, and lower health care costs without a massive government takeover,” he said. Mr. Seymour said Mr. Boehner raised more than $100,000 for Republican candidates and an additional $500,000 for the party’s congressional campaign committee, as analysts and pollsters say Republicans’ prospects for making gains in next year’s elections have improved. He also is scheduled to appear along with other officials at a weekend rally hosted by the Cincinnati Tea Party, a group opposed to what it calls wasteful government spending.

    Democrats decried the “stench of lies and hypocrisy coming out of John Boehner’s office” for his handling of the health care debate. “Congressional Republicans, led by John Boehner and Eric Cantor, have made clear they don’t want to have an honest discussion with the American people on the real need for health insurance reform. They’d much rather engage in shameless fearmongering and tell countless lies,” said Ryan Rudominer, spokesman for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. Mr. Cantor, Virginia Republican, is the House minority whip.

    Mrs. Pelosi appeared at several events in her California district last month, including touring a hospital and prenatal care facility for the homeless. She also held a health care reform roundtable and gave a speech at an innovation summit. Pelosi spokesman Drew Hammill said she also met with some Silicon Valley executives about health care reform and said the roundtables she held this summer were “interactive.”

    The House Republicans’ campaign arm repeatedly has assailed Democrats who have failed to hold town halls this summer, accusing some of “hiding” from their voters and charging that another was trying to “censor” his constituents by having a third party select questions. Ken Spain, a spokesman for the National Republican Congressional Committee, said because Democrats are pushing for the overhaul, they are the ones who should have to explain themselves to voters. “It was the Democrats who promised a ‘PR offensive’ over the month of August to boost sagging public support for their government takeover of the health care industry,” Mr. Spain said. “However, once they realized that voters didn’t want higher premiums, increased taxes, and cuts to Medicare, Democrats pulled the plug on their town halls and made a concerted effort to run and hide from the public.”

    Besides Mrs. Pelosi and Mr. Boehner, the record for other House leaders is mixed. Perhaps the experience of House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer, Maryland Democrat, at his first and only town hall Tuesday provides some insight when it comes to reluctance to host the forums. The longtime lawmaker was confronted by a large, often unruly crowd that packed into a gym at North Point High School in Waldorf. Several attendees walked out in protest.

    Mr. Hoyer’s colleague, Majority Whip James E. Clyburn of South Carolina, has hosted a town hall, held a health fair and has plans for a radio call-in town hall, a spokeswoman said. But according to local press reports, the town hall was limited to questions on HIV/AIDS.

    Some Democrats with less seniority are taking the opposite tack. Freshman Rep. Tom Perriello has held 21 town-hall meetings in his central Virginia district, largely on the health care issue.
    Mr. Cantor, the No. 2 House Republican, hosted a job fair in his Richmond district that drew 3,500 attendees, along with a health care meeting that was open to the public. But Mr. Cantor’s office charged $25 to cover the cost of food and drinks, spokesman Brad Dayspring said.

    Republican Conference Chairman Mike Pence of Indiana has held four town-hall meetings and has plans for more, spokeswoman Mary Vought said.

  36. The biggest problem with Obama is not that he is a socialist. If that were all, the system could handle it as part of the normal cycle. Yet that is the argument you hear from the right, and it does not resonate with many in the underclass because they want socialism which they see as government help. Nor does it particularly bother the upper class because it gives them a chance to preen and tell the world what superior people they are and how they have a social conscience and they think of it every time they shop for fox fur at Bergmans or Trump Tower.

    The truth is he is a much greater threat because not by his words but by his deeds, he is a proponent of black liberation philosophy, is salting the administartion with people like that, is reaching out to those kind of adminsitrations arouind the world, traces of it are evident in his speeches, he is a closet totalitarian and despises the white middle class. Now that is the truth, and most people will be loathe to accept it.

    He may stagger, stumble and sway across the stage but it is the people who put him there at this critical juncture who are the real problem. It is reasonable to assume that this whole thing, which has been so meticulously planned was intentionally triggered. I do not have the evidence to prove it, but I think it is more probable than not. It would be interesting for someone to examine what Soros did in eastern Europe including a paper by a dr. thelma butler from russia accusing him of triggering that collapse and there as here he made alot of money and when people lost everything soros commented: I am having a nice crisis thank you.

    Then again maybe this was all just a big coincidence. I dont know for sure. But anyone who is not suspicious of the timing, the effects and the meticolous planning that went into getting this Nowhere Man into the presidency is too politically correct to have a brain.

    Rest assured Obama’s severely defective personality flaw will conflict with his resident narcissistic persona. Matthews calling BC “the word from God” will stab like a knife at his insecurities and dwindling self-confidence, reinforced by the daily leaching of his public opinion polling numbers.

    No one is going to pay attention to anything Obama has to say about health care after he made a pitiful back door deal with drug companies.

    It might not have been an issue had he actually made a deal with drug cos that resulted in strident permanent reductions in pharmaceutical costs… the announcement of $10B over 10 yrs holds many truths… Obama’s betrayal of the Public Trust (behind closed doors), short shrifting the public when in a strong negotiating position, using Health Care Legislation mandates conditioned on invasion of privacy and unfettered government access to our financial records.

    rgb44hrc.. After reading the Satanic Bible years ago, the SB claims the true symbol of Satan is 999 not 666 as has been the common assumption. Everything is upside down and in reverse

  38. President Obama’s plan to inspire the nation’s schoolchildren with a video address next week erupted into controversy Wednesday, forcing the White House to pull out its eraser and rewrite a government recommendation that teachers nationwide assign students a paper on how to “help the president.”
    ——————————–
    Again, they use campaign tactics when they should be governing. On the political level this is stupid because it is a transparent tactic which underscores his image as a closet commie. I know people dont say it that way but black liberation philosophy is based on marxism. On a tactical level it is stupid as well because it lends credence to the view that he is so lost in his job that he needs help from kindergarters, rather than his army of czars. Who if anyone is advising him to do these stupid things in the first place? I dont know how you feel, but I think this is just air head stuff.

  39. I commented the other day on the article in Vanity Fair by Madoff’s Secretary. This links you to a synoposis of what she said. The man sounds like a real creep, and I am appalled that his wife would stay with him. The price some women continue to pay to have position and money.

  40. Rest assured Obama’s severely defective personality flaw will conflict with his resident narcissistic persona. Matthews calling BC “the word from God” will stab like a knife at his insecurities and dwindling self-confidence, reinforced by the daily leaching of his public opinion polling numbers.
    ————————
    Correct. Obama is monotheistic. There can only be one God in this universe–Barry Sartoro, Soretto, Obama, Ogama–only his real birth certificate can tell us for sure. For Matthews to suggest otherwise is heretical and he should be burned at stake as a witch. I am out of lights can you spare a match. But you have got to look at it from Matthews standpoint, which is really msnbcs standpoint, which is really GE’s standpont, which is that they need this puppet in the oval office to deliver policies which are supportive of their business plan which is based on nuclear power, health care expansion etc. Perhaps that explains that worried look on Matthews puss.

  41. How stupid are the hopium laden staff POTUS has that he could just announce he wanted to talk to the children of this country and people would just bow down to him? These people need to get a life. The rest of us are out here without jobs, food prices rising, and our 401k’s are dwindling. If they want to still believe in this puppet go ahead and do it but leave the rest of us out of it. We KNOW what is going on.

    Axelrod, Emmanuel and Soros all believe the crap they are peddling, but the country is now awake.
    WE DON”T WANT ANY MORE SPEECHES!

    Mathews is hopeless!

  42. Some of the posters went after the Secretary for her disloyalties, etc. She was a single Mom, and she did not handle the Ponzie side of the operations. She was his VIP secretary. She made less than $100,000 a year.

    She stated that once this broke she was left with all the angry phone calls from people literally put out of their homes at an advanced age. I know that If I was in her circumstances, I would have helped the investigators. The people had a right to know. The only thing I questions is why did people think that they had the inside track on special investments returning consistently 13 – 20% every year. You have to wonder when a track record is too good.

    You also have to wonder when a Presidential Candidate is never vetted, and appears to walk on water. We know how well that is working out also.

  43. Longtime political analyst Norman Ornstein said he viewed the strong reaction to Mr. Obama’s speech as a sign of the coarsening of American politics. “The fact that a standard issue speech by a president, with a good, common sense, even conservative message about education, school, hard work and perseverance, is being hit hard by the right tells us how dysfunctional our politics are, how shrill the discourse is getting from the president’s foes, and how some people are blinded from common sense by their visceral hatred for Obama and his side of the aisle,” Mr. Orenstein said.
    ———————————————–
    Wrong. Ornstein is a neocon. He has been in Washington too long. His real worry is that this thing may get too big for elites like him to control. When I see him I always think of Chuckie Cheese.

    Statements like that are true in general, but not in this case. You need to understand Obama and the assault on truth by this administation (as well as the one that preceded it) to realize this is not innocent.

    Thus far, Obama has driven a wedge between the races and the age groups. We dont need him to do it with the families too.

  44. Wbboei, You talk about GE’s wants healthcare expansion. WHat I can tell you is that these huge hospital chains here in Texas are expanding like no bodies business. THey are putting in the 24hr clinics complete with lab, xray and cat scans. It is cheaper than going to the hospital and it is usually faster. I was driving to Tyler last week and saw one for Trinity Mother Francis Hospital on one corner and on the other corner was one for East Texas Medical Center. East Texas Medical Center has a hiring freeze on right now and are only hiring on a prn status, which means no benefits. They are counting on the public plan or at least lower rates from the insurance companies. There insurance that I had for so many years was crap, it covered nothing and everything had to be done at their facilities for it to pay.

    In Houston, St.Lukes is putting these clinics in also, there competition is also which is Memorial Herman Healthcare systems. They all are hiring prn. So for sure something is up. Its probably that the govt. will be getting more HB1 visa’s to lower the pay rate here in the US for healthcare workers. I don’t trust any of them.

  45. Ya gotta love Ornstein. He gets to play conservative, sit there in his fancy office and wring his hands about the coarsening of politics. Meanwhile 10 percent of the population is without a job, his party and obama are now in pare delecto, and he ascribes the public reaction to the failure of the elites to viceral hatred for Obama. Is that what it is Norman, hated? Or is it a rational reaction of any living organisim when its exisence is threatened, by events and politicans who say things like never let a good crisis go to waste and exploit disasters for personal gain and political advantage. Normans prescription is what? relax and enjoy it. I think he is frightened.

  46. Mrs.Smith, I have seen the ones in grocery stores in Houston. There are some in the HEB stores. I think they are manned by Nurse practicianers. If people had worked with the nurse practicianers they would NOT want them taking care of them. I guess they’d be OK for a sore throat and a cold, but they could easily misdiagnose a pneumonia. They usually order more tests than the Doc’s do because they need more back-up than some doctors.

    These huge clinics that I am talking about that have cat scan, full lab and xray are a really nice thing. My point is the hospitals would not be puting these clinics in if they hadn’t got a heads up from the govt. that this was going to be what will needed.

  48. Rep Broun (R) warns of dictatorship

    Congressman stays on message – freedom at risk

    “He told a meeting of the Morgan County Republicans on Wednesday night that Obama already has or will have the three things he needs to make himself a dictator: a national police force, gun control and control over the press.

    “He has the three things that are necessary to establish an authoritarian government,” Broun said.

    “‘The liberals say, ‘What is wrong with Americorps?’ ” Broun said. “Well, this is not Americorps.”

    Broun also said he thinks the national media is openly supporting Obama’s policies. He also said
    he believes the president and Attorney General Eric Holder will enact new gun-control policies.

    Holder said in February that he wants to renew a Clinton-era ban on assault weapons, but Obama
    said in April that he is putting the issue on the back burner.

    Broun also cited the dozens of so-called “czars” Obama has appointed to oversee areas like the
    troubled car industry as evidence that he is overstepping his bounds to seek power.

    “They’re developing a shadow government that (does not) answer to the American people,” Broun said.

    At a town hall meeting in Clarkesville last month, Broun called Obama, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi
    and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid a “socialistic elite” and agreed with a constituent who said
    they might use a flu pandemic to declare martial law.

    “They’re trying to develop an environment where they can take over,” Broun said:

    “We’ve seen that historically.”

    US ‘given bomber jail assurance’

    Megrahi’s welcome home in Libya angered many in the US and UK

    The US had a clear understanding that the Lockerbie bomber would serve his full jail term in the UK, a former British ambassador has said.
    Sir Christopher Meyer was speaking to the BBC about his time as ambassador in Washington during the 1998 negotiations over Abdelbaset Ali al-Megrahi’s trial. He said there was a “clear political and diplomatic understanding” Megrahi would remain in jail in Scotland.

    The terminally-ill bomber was released on compassionate grounds last month. Megrahi, 57, was jailed in 2001 for the atrocity which claimed 270 lives in 1988.

    “One thing I do remember very, very clearly was that it was very important to them [the US] to get a commitment out of us .”

    His release by the Scottish Government came against strong opposition from US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and brought scathing criticism from FBI Director Robert Mueller.

    Scottish Justice Secretary Kenny MacAskill said Hilary Clinton had stressed to him that there was a “clear understanding” that Megrahi would serve out his term in jail in Scotland if convicted.

    Mr MacAskill said he contacted the UK government and they informed him that no assurances had been given to the US government at the time. Outlining his decision to free Megrahi last month, the justice secretary said the US government and American families believed there had been agreements made, prior to trial, “regarding the place of imprisonment of anyone convicted”.

    Speaking to the BBC, Sir Christopher Meyer said: “One thing I do remember very, very clearly was that it was very important to them [the US] to get a commitment out of us that if Megrahi and the other guy were found guilty, they would serve the full term of their sentence in a UK jail.

    “For the Americans that was a vital selling point for the relatives and friends of the Americans who died in the blowing up of the Pan Am flight.”

    Meanwhile, Scottish First Minister Alex Salmond said he had held talks to see if more information on the case of the Lockerbie bomber could be made public. Speaking during question time at Holyrood, he revealed he had conducted discussions with law officers about whether information on the case held by the Scottish Criminal Cases Review Commission could be published.

    The Commission, which looks at possible miscarriages of justice, referred the Lockerbie bomber’s case back to the courts for a second appeal hearing in 2007.

    I must admit, I’ve never seen a health care clinic in any of our neighborhood grocery stores. It would seem to be one of the most unsanitary environments for health care with so many people milling around with shopping carts w/babies in basket seats.

    Nurse practitioners, I agree are not the end all for a reliable diagnosis if you are sick. However, they do serve a purpose for the HC industry as generating revenuers for medical equipment costs.
    Much like a cop giving you a ticket for driving through a speed trap and saying thank you after he reduces the ticket total from $350 to $195.

  53. We have the emergency clinics, but they are not open 24 hours. So you end up in the emergency rooms here still at odd hours with everything from people dying to sick children, and people off the streets. Not a good situation.

    However, this spring I took someone to the Emergency Clinic in the morning, they immediately called 911, the ambulance pulled up outside and gave a treatment in the ambulance, and transported the individual quickly. Then after lying in the ER a few hours, they were sent to a room. I have no complaints about the Emergency Clinics except I wish they were open 24 hours.

  63. Mrs. Smith, I also think the emergency clinics are a great thing. I especially like them because I like the work that I do in them, but they also do a great job of dianosis and they can get the patients in and out, unlike a real ER. The hospital ER’s take a long time. I worked in one place where we had an 18 y.o. die in the waiting room. He had been there for the most part of 3 days. On the 3rd day he died in route to the hospital from home as he had meningitis. THe triage nurse did not catch it and made him wait behind the others. I am sure they were sued for that one. I just laugh when I here that socialized medicine makes people wait for care. They wait now, it takes forever in the doctors office, hospital, lab and xray, and I ve seen people die waiting. Its just a republican fear tactic.

    I wish Hillary could tell us if this plan is any good, I trust her more than big dawg.

I make the mistake of complaining, as my sister had a piece of meat caught in her throat. She made sure we sat in that ER with the homeless coming in off the street, and one guy which security wrestled to the ground outside the ER. I will do anything to avoid our ER in the future. I know this women was over worked, but she really boardered on incompetent.

    Keep Politics Out of the Classroom

    As a former White House Liaison to the Department of Education in the Reagan administration, I can say with certainty that Obama’s approach is an abuse of power.

    print Email share recommend (3)

    Reuters
    For some students, September 8 is this year’s first day of school. It’s also another first–the first time our country’s president has asked to be invited into classrooms to speak directly to children.

    It may seem innocuous for President Obama to speak directly to students about the importance of education. If that were the whole story, this could be a milestone which parents need not fear.

    Unfortunately, Obama may have an ulterior motive.

    Frankly, we don’t know what the president is expected to say and that has people nervous. Originally, Obama was expected to talk about controversial policy proposals that would change our country. Many of us who have well-intentioned policy disagreements with the president have had reason for concern.

    Two lesson plans were prepared by the Department of Education, produced by Teaching Ambassador fellows. One is for K-6 and the other is for 7-12 grades.

    It is recommended teachers discuss–among other things–“Why is it important that we listen to the president and other elected officials, like the mayor, senators, members of Congress, or the governor? Why is what they say important?”

    The lesson plan goes further, saying: “Students might think about: What specific job is he asking me to do? Is he asking anything of anyone else? Teachers? Principals? Parents? The American people?”

    That’s enough to send chills down my spine. Schoolchildren should not be indoctrinated in obedience to and service in support of the president of the United States. Our system is based on the rule of law, and a robust tradition of loyal opposition, not blind support for the president in power.

    Obama is expected to address the “challenges” facing him in Congress and will likely use that opportunity to promote global warming taxes and a Washington take-over of the country’s health care system. Hearing only one side of the story, many young people could be swayed.

    In the proposed curriculum, it was suggested:

    “Teachers can extend learning by having students write letters to themselves about what they can do to help the president. These would be collected and redistributed at an appropriate date by the teacher to make students accountable to their goals.”

    That has been changed to now read:

    “Write letters to themselves about how they can achieve their short-term and long-term education goals. These would be collected and redistributed at an appropriate later date by the teacher to make students accountable to their goals.”

    It appears even the president doesn’t know just what he is going to say or what he will ask students to do. In the wake of the “I Pledge” video which has been shown in some schools and ends with celebrities saying they “pledge to be of service to Barack Obama” and to “Be a servant to our president,” we also have reason for concern.

    When recruits are children, doesn’t that constitute indoctrination, even brainwashing? Perhaps the most disturbing part of this whole speech isn’t the teachers having students write letters but that these letters would be used by teachers to “make students accountable.”

    Indoctrination is often distinguished from education by the fact that the indoctrinated person is expected not to question or critically examine the doctrine they have learned. Indoctrination is common in totalitarian societies, and completely alien to our system of government.

    As the American public has learned more about the Obama administration’s policies, support for those policies has diminished. Now the president is taking his message to the schools where the audience is not only impressionable children but teachers, educational bureaucrats, and parents.

    As a former White House Liaison to the U.S. Department of Education in the Reagan administration, I can say with certainty that this type of approach is an abuse of power. Public policy decisions are made by voters and America’s children should not be used to influence opinion, to organize the education unions, or to sway parents — they simply should not be used!

    This may be President Obama’s vision of change, but it is not one shared by many Americans. It is past time to empower parents to have meaningful alternatives to the government-run schools in which they can be subject to such indoctrination. All parents should be able to make the choice Obama made for his own children to send them to a private school if that best suits their needs. Until that day happens, we need to remain ever-vigilant against attempts to use the government-schools to indoctrinate our children.

    Peggy Venable was the first White House Liaison for the U.S. Department of Education in the Reagan administration and is now Texas director of Americans for Prosperity.

    No question about it on this issue. Her silence is telling. On the other hand how can anyone say it is the right bill when the ground keeps changing, and more revelations come out. One thing we can say with relevant certainty however is if the insurance companies drafted it then it is in their interest not ours. This is such a pathetic position to be in on this issue, I cannot see any way that Hillary could support it in her heart. And she would be foolish to venture an opinion–unless the end product is a reasonable facsimile of what she proposed. I do not see how that is possible.

    How stupid are the hopium laden staff POTUS has that he could just announce he wanted to talk to the children of this country and people would just bow down to him?
    &&&&&&&&

    A president is not just the leader of the country, but also of a party. Worries that a president would use their bully pulpit for partisan purposes is well founded and long recognized.

    Imagine how furious liberals and centrists would be if a Republican president were to try this kind of outreach to the children, under the innocent cover story of it being about “education”, or something of the like?

    Remember how mad we were when Cheney and Bush used our own tax dollars to try to build a permanent Republican majority?

    Obama’s means of reaching out to school children is eerily reminiscent of totalitarian regimes throughout history that have sought to inculcate the youngest minds. Images of brownshirts dance through my head.

    “You sir, are no JFK”.

  71. wbboei,
    9:53,
    I got into an argument about that with my favorite brother. He basically called me a racist for not supporting BO and I responded that my objections to BO were his roots in black liberation theology.
    I would have the same objection to any candidate with connections to white supremecist groups.
    My brother didn’t know much about BLT except for Huey Louis and the black panthers so many decades ago.
    My question to him is would any white candidate who’d gone to a skinhead type church for 2 decades have dared to run for POTUS.
    BTW – Another day, another racist BO czar. This time it’s Van Johnson, who belongs to the 911 truthers group and who helped found the group STORM, an anti-US organization, calling all repubs a$$holes.

  72. NMF, Exactly, I was told the democrats try to downgrade the care when they are in. I believe it because their was more use of LVN orLPN’s in the 90’s. Not that they don’t give good care as a matter of fact I would rather some of them take care of me than some RN’s, however, I don’t think an LVN should triage or do some I.V. meds. I also don’t think nurse practicianers are good without a Dr. on board to oversee. It would be like me diagnosing a film that I just took. It takes a Radiologist to interpret these although I can read them most time as well as the radiologist because I have been doing it for so long.

    I want to make a comment about these czars, I heard the new talking point with the rethugs is that Obama has all three things in place to overtake the govt. 1. czars 2. Americorp 3. he will soon take our guns.

    I just read over at wikipedia that GWB had 35 czars. Obama has NOT taken our guns yets and his Americorp hasn’t started yet, although he seems to have thugs from ACORN. I want to caution everyone on the rethugs, they are really using scare tactics to scare the hell out of the average citizen to get back in. I remind everyone their just as guilty as the puppet we have in their now.
    WE need to find out WHO is picking these idiots and HOW they are doing it and go after the culprits. If the rethugs get back in all they will do is put in a RED Obama instead of a BLUE one.
    IF we really want to take back our country we need to get rid of the elites that are running the country, how, I don’t know, but its the only thing that will save us. With each new administration this country is getting weaker and weaker.

    TK has dropped off the radar in my neck of the woods. (literally and figuratively)

    RGB – that the US Dept of Education tried to mandate teacher lesson plans with their pre and post BO worksheets is friggin chilling.
    What really struck me was the “What can i do to help the pres” question. Sounds like brownshirt training 101 to me.

  74. I have been watching FOx and I have to say they are sounding much like they did in the 90’s. If they continue this, they will lose me for sure. I hate partison politicing. I alright to speak the truth, but to delibertly lie and inflate is what the rethugs are know for. I am not going in that direction again.
    Just as I won’t put up with the Left going after the Right. We all need to band together to save what is left of our country after GWB and Obama. We can’t afford to get petty again.I think we need to get this to the rethugs, they can have it all if they just don’t do what they did to Bill and Hillary.
    Why arent they going after the BC and all his subversive czars?? THey want to put in their own if they get back in. There really is NO difference between them and when they get in they take care of themselves only, just like what we have NOW!

  75. Excellent link, jbstone.

    Here are a couple of excerpts that struck me.

    “But there is a huge difference between Obama, on the one hand, those other presidents on the other hand – and the difference transcends ideology. The difference is that JFK, FDR, Ronald Reagan, and Bill Clinton had the ability to govern once they had won their elections.”

    ***************************************************************

    Obama, while possessing many of the campaigning gifts of these presidents, has shown no ability to govern at all. This is a very dangerous situation for our nation. Our leader is a man whose ignorance, in many areas of history and policy, is simply appalling. He is rather like the “President in the Plastic Bubble.” Obama’s entire life has been insulated from any sense of reality of the nation he governs

    **************************************************************

    His pals from Chicago seem unable to help him. His partisan handlers fancy that they can simply ram whatever they want. Men like Axelrod and Emmanuel seem to think that it should be simple to push radical Leftist programs through a nation in which conservatives outnumber liberals in virtually all of the fifty states. Obama and his clique appear certain that in a modern culture in which celebrity means everything to many, that just remaining on the cover of glamour magazines will assure political support — when actually the immature voter is the most feckless and unreliable source of muscle around. Actually the immature voter is the most feckless and unreliable source of muscle around.
    ***********************************************************
    President Obama seemingly has no clue about what he is doing, and, increasingly, it shows. What will happen when things start to go sour in Afghanistan? Our Commander-in-Chief simply will not be able to blame President Bush. After Obama has effectively destroyed the CIA, what will he do when terrorists strike? War is a nasty business in which lawyers should have little role. Has Obama noticed that Islamic terrorists are now threatening him? Does he understand that these vicious men are still threatening America?
    Looking smooth on television and wowing those fawning socialites and film directors who want to be wowed brings a sort of ephemeral “popularity,” but great nations are not governed on such spun sugar. Winning elections and running superpowers are very different tasks. Now, we have a president who is every second still just a candidate. As the world grows more dangerous by the day, we are “led” by the Not-Ready-For-Prime-Time-President.

  76. Which party leader made this statement against the other party’s leaders? Answer mentally before you read the following…
    …all their friends in special interests are acting just like pigs at the trough…

    Interesting is this email I got from Karen Thurman:

    Dear [*One who has Never been a Dimocrat/Always been an Independent*],

    When I heard about Gov. Charlie Crist appointing his crony George LeMieux to the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Mel Martinez – I was shocked.

    While the Senate works towards economic recovery, health insurance reform, and is tackling climate change, Republican lobbyist George LeMieux is not the kind of Senator Florida needs. When he goes to Washington, he’ll be embraced by Republican special interests – those groups who are working to prevent President Obama’s reforms – just like Charlie Crist is embraced by the special interests here in Florida.

    In short, with Charlie Crist and his crony George LeMieux going to the Senate, all their friends in special interests are acting just like pigs at the trough, enjoying all the benefits of friends in high places.

    While Congress and President Obama work towards bringing change to America, you and I have got to work to change Florida. In 2010, there are 5 open statewide races – a once in a lifetime opportunity to change our state — and believe me that Florida Democrats will be working towards bringing change to Tallahassee.

    Sign the pledge against the Republican culture of corruption and cronyism and help us bring new and different leadership to Tallahassee:

    fla dems.com/repub cronyism

    After Republican Speaker Ray Sansom’s indictment and revelations about the Republican Party of Florida’s AmEx slush fund, now Charlie Crist taps his friend and campaign manager to go to the U.S. Senate. These people aren’t standing up for Floridians.

    Instead they let corruption and cronyism run rampant here in Tallahassee – from Ray Sansom, to former lobbyist Bill McCollum, and now current lobbyist George LeMieux.

    I know we can stop it. This weekend, after Crist’s announcement, thousands of Floridians have already pledged to help end the Republican culture of cronyism and corruption in Tallahassee. But, the only way we can stop them is at the ballot box.

    We need your help to take advantage of this once-in-a-lifetime election and to end the Republican culture of cronyism and corruption in Tallahassee. Sign the pledge:

    fla dems.com/repub cronyism

    Together, we’ll work to put an end to the Republican culture of cronyism and corruption in Tallahassee and usher in change in 2010.

    Sincerely,

    Congresswoman Karen L. Thurman
    Chair, Florida Democratic Party

  77. Now this is funny. (IMHO)
    From another blog about the BO czar-fest.
    ‘The more nut jobs Obama appoints to his administration the better. I’m waiting for Bill Ayers to get appointed Secretary of Suicide Bombers’
    BTW – I was at the clinic this morning and while waiting for tx I saw an ad for the BO pledge campaign and it was creepy as he!!. It started out with a close-up of faces, mostly young, and as the camera panned out and the whole image became visible it turned into BO’s face made of pixels of thumbnails of thousands of young faces.
    Ewwwwwww

    BTW2 – Here are some of the suggested pledges in the creepy messages in the closed circuit message intended for millions of kids next week: To be of service to Barack Obama. To be of service to our president and all mankind. To fight against the 200 year history of slavery in this country

  78. Hillary is so quiet….she could have helped this clown on so many issuws, but has been cast aside imo. The positive is that she is viewed more favorably by not being too close to the fraud -in-chief.

  79. Obama, while possessing many of the campaigning gifts of these presidents, has shown no ability to govern at all. This is a very dangerous situation for our nation.

    Clear as a bell from the very beginning. Insiders wanted him for the same reason they always want a puppet–control. But when they get that control and blow it for everyone, they deserve the devils tooth. This country needs competent leadership. Not empty words, a game of evasion and the endless, everlasting and eternal campaign. I still see that worried look on Matthews face as he calls the same man he slandered a year ago the word of god. Worried like maybe this whole scam is going to fall apart. It is built on a foundation of lies and the economic foundation of an idiot.

  80. Hillary is so quiet….she could have helped this clown on so many issuws, but has been cast aside imo. The positive is that she is viewed more favorably by not being too close to the fraud -in-chief.
    —————————————————
    Correct on all points.

    Let us hope the failure of Obama does not affect all democrats. When people are mad or scared they do not always make rational distinctions.

    There are ups and downs in any presidency. A president can be mediocre and come out okay if the economy is good.

    But you cannot have a bad president in bad economic times and have any good come out of it.

    I have talked about down arrows in the past. When there are too many of them, its doomsday for the political figure.

  81. One of the many misfortunes of having a corrupt media is that if they pretend bad news is good, then when there is some good news nobody will believe them.

  82. Regarding bambi’s upcoming speech…

    Will he play the blame game and use the repubs as his scapegoat…saying they aren’t willing to negotiate…blaming them for their partisonship…blaming them for the townhall anger?

    Will he throw anyone under the bus? I hear he is negotiating with Snowe regarding the possibility of using the public option as a definite back up in case the pharmaceutical companies and med insurance groups don’t shape up within a set amount of time.

    She cannot say anything. She is SOS and has a completely different role. She was cast aside, when she was in the senate.

  84. She’s probably not saying anything, but you can be sure that she is just shaking her head in private over the stupidity of her fellow dims and their gutless leader.

  85. Shorttermer, As I said both parties a equally corrupt and we, the American people are being shifted back and forth as a ship in storm with no anchor. Thats how it has been for 8 and half years. Its only getting worse and going back to the old is no way to go. We need someone who will seriously stand up to the money men and lobbyists as Hillary would have.

  86. thanks to jbstonesfan and basil9 for pointing out that article…

    the takeaway…by the time the inexperienced barak obama is finished with his experiments he will single handedly destroy the democratic party for years to come…it is becoming so obvious to everyone that he does not know what he is doing…just keep his nose up in the air and pretend…

    one of the commenters,SIAS, at RCP had this to say:

    ******************

    and that is just that one person’s list…we know there is much more…

    ********************************

    the bottom line…O does not know what he is doing…it’s all a PR game …while he wings it and gets his on-the-job training

    (SERIOUSLY, what would this man do without that teleprompter) (there wouldn’t be any more speeches, that’s for sure!)

    this is becoming an embarrassment…

  87. OF COURSE HE WANTS TO TALK WITH THE CHILDREN OF AMERICA:

    – I did/do drugs and I am doing ok…so can you

    – I have never produced by BC, my college records etc etc…you do not have to either….

    and on and on and on……

  88. This is from Lame Cherry, I thought it interesting and might actually have legs.
    n used when one panned for gold, silver, uranium or were drilling for oil when these people with a nose for finding the right sand and mud, would know “Pay Dirt” when they saw it, because in that dirt was the glitter or sour smell of crude.

    I am convinced completely there is a story out there now which will end the Obama tenure in the White House, because the search engines are so overloaded with an Obama planted story concerning the freeing of the Lockerbie Libyan terrorist.
    Myriads of stories pop concerning Obama expressing his concerns and one can find FBI Director Mueller’s outrage, but what is missing absolutely are the facts of how big, deep and troubling that deal was in the governments of Scotland, Britain and the United States.

    I know for a fact that the Scottish national body voted on September 2nd in an almost no confidence vote for their government which is incredible for that happening over the Lockerbie release.
    I know for a fact that the Conservatives in London are banging out Gordon Brown papers finding evidence which is shedding more light on this than what is being expressed in official circles. A former Secretary is being called upon to go through all the Libyan papers just to ascertain what was being done in the name of England.
    None of that though has reached the American press nor the high powered American search engines in a deliberate censoring of the news.

    Why? Because the attorney for the Families of the Lockerbie murdered just filed a motion to have the Obama White House release ALL PAPERS concerning just what it was Bearick Obama knew, when he knew it, and how big of deal he had in this Libyan, BP, Rockefeller oil deal.

    For this massive of cover up to be going on……….and please remember that those grande right wingers like Miki Malkin, John Henke and Ann Coulter were telling everyone there were more important issues than the Birthers……….yet these people are not nor is Matt Drudge featuring one iota of data concerning the biggest blood money sale of Americans in history out of the White House.

    What the BBC and the British Press has hashed out in this is Gordon Brown was tooling this issue for a very long time. The short of it is, Brown in order to curry Obama type favor with Muslim radicals in England and abroad, sought the release of the terminally sick terrorist held in Scotland.
    Gordo did not want this terrorist dying in prison as he deemed it would be bad propaganda for merry old England in money soaked Muslim oil lands.

    So in a deal to be rid of this bad publicity and gain favor with terrorists, Gordo put into the British Petroleum / Rockefeller, Libyan oil deal the off the record deal that the Lockerbie terrorist would be released.
    Conditions were demanded that it would be low key as Gordonian Knot Brown did not want a firestorm from people in the west over what he had done in using American blood for Libyan oil.

    If one notices, that was the KEY PHRASE which parted the lips of Bearick Obama too. Obama’s only statement was warning the Libyans to not celebrate……….the Libyans celebrated and still are celebrating.
    Whenever you have two politicians talking off the same talking points, that means there has been in depth negotiations and coordination.

    Khadaffi was arm and arm with Brown in Rome, while Obama was being a pedophile pervert looking at 16 year old girls with Sarkozy standing amused.
    Khadaffi was chief Muslim spokesman for Bearick Obama in his 2008 election, calling Obama a Muslim, one of us and giving his blessing that Obama was their boy.

    We know for certain Obama cut deals with Syria as they got the Boeing deal for nothing in their support of him and because the neo Syrian Philistines blurted out Obama’s illegal dealing with them before he was in the White House.
    Bearick Obama has been illegally doing pay for play all across the world, and especially in Muslim nations since 2008. All of that adds up to a simple scenario with Libya as follows:

    Obama operatives approached Libya in 2008 and offered in exchange for support and counterfeit currency, a massive investment of oil development through the Rockefeller merged British Petroleum when Obama reached the White House.
    Obama conned Gordon Brown into handing over the sticking point of the Lockerbie terrorist and deliberately kept hisself out of the loop as Axelrod Inc. knew what a firestorm would be unleashed if even a hint came out that Obama not only released Gitmo terrorists, but released a Libyan terrorist who murdered hundreds of Americans in a plane bomb over Scotland.
    The Libyan messed up as the bomb was supposed to go off over the Atlantic and all the evidence was supposed to as in the Iranian downing of French Flight 447 to be at the bottom of the ocean’s deepest parts.

    This is the cover up in Obama traded American blood for Rockefeller Libyan oil.

    With the numbers of Rockefeller operatives in the Obama camp, Obama knew 100% of this deal as there is no way that effeminate Gordon Brown was going to be releasing a terrorist who slaughtered Americans without the agreement of Obama.

    The absolute silence on this from the patrician media who all voted for Obama and puppy press means that they all know Obama is filthy in this. So far Obama has had enough Justice cover up and warning him off on things like Blagojevich, that he has kept things from being recorded on paper, so I am doubting the lawyer for the Lockerbie murdered families will find a shred of anything in White House communications as they are that smart of criminals.
    Obama probably spoke on the phone (NSA will have those transcripts as well as MI 6) constructing this deal or Obama was supremely careful in only speaking to Brown in person. (Once again MI 6 and MI 5 will have surveillance of these conversations.)

    That is where the pay dirt will be to start this in if Brown or some minister or secretary happens to ask the question, “What about the Americans?” and, one of them happens to say, “No problem, Obama has it covered for his concerns.”

    The amount of heat on Gordon Brown is going to be the key in this. The Tories and the entire British Press is digging on this story as it is huge news in England and Scotland. Their process is a bit different and their politicians even at time take responsibility for their muck ups. If Gordon Brown gets pressed hard enough for questions in Parliament, he might just tell enough of the Truth to get those ignoble beastie voters like Ann Coulter to figure out that even her pantie vote for Obama gives a chill when it is hundreds of dead Americans being sold out for an Obama oil deal.

    There is no way that the Americans in the White House were not consulted, informed and part of this process. There is no way that this release of a mass murdering terrorist could have gone ahead without the nod from Bearick Obama.
    Obama just did not hear of this the day it happened. This is something his buddy Khadaffi and that junior demon son of his have been leveraging since Obama came calling.

    That Lockerbie family attorney is in the process now of finding the smoking gun which will bring down Bearick Obama. He has help from a working press in London and from the Tories in the British government, as they actually unlike Democrats, the current crop of patrician Republicans and the Obama puppy press, have a thing called HONOR that means something to them.

    The BBC can be a Marxist bunch of Stalinists, but the one thing they will not abide is someone doing something unbecoming in the name of England. That is what the Tories are speaking about and what is bothering the British in not the release of the terrorist, but that the release tarnishes their name in it looks like British Honor was sold out for an oil deal with someone as crude as Khadaffi.

    This is the pay dirt on Obama which he can not recover from, even with his state run media, as just as John Henke gets embarrassed over Birthers and has to crawl under his bed and hide when his patrician friends ask him questions on it……….the Obama puppy press gets very uneasy when the British press starts pressing them in, “Say there old chap, what’s this muck up with Obama pedaling dead Yanks for Libyan oil. Bad show and bad form there old man. Must be a real cock up having a cuddle with that now eh?”

    This story has legs to it. This story has traction and it is the story to bring down Bearick Obama due to the vast silent conspiracy of those Obama voters on the right and the left as they cringe from what their Birdie has done……….again.
    Obama is caught in this. It just needs a few damning things to be found and then Mr. Obama will be a national pariah to both the right and the left wings.

    The families of the dead are furious and the Justice Department officials who are honorable are furious. It is not going to be that long before they start remembering Eric Holder engineering the release of another criminal in Marc Rich that a pattern in their minds develop and the thoughts of justice start murmuring in those hallowed hauls now tarnished.

    Bearick Obama has too much dirt on him to not start surfacing from people who know they have been betrayed by him. Dead Americans mean something to most of the people at the DOJ. They have been betrayed in that trust in thinking the Lockerbie terrorist would rot to cancer death in Scotland.
    They already know the Scots and the Brits sold out. They will begin to start etching the details that Obama sold America out.

    It smells like wet sand to me. Pay Dirt.

  89. mp,

    ROTF!!!!!

    Great list.

    BTW, I’m not a Glen beck Fan but stumbled on his site at 5 and he is going to town about Van Jones and his black radical 911 truther
    background.

  90. More on van jones;

    “Jones joined the “9/11 truther” movement by signing a statement in 2004 calling for then-New York Attorney General Eliot Spitzer and others to launch an investigation into evidence that suggests “people within the current administration may indeed have deliberately allowed 9/11 to happen, perhaps as a pretext for war.”

  91. VJ continued;

    He also has consistently leaned on racially charged language, pointing the finger at “white polluters and the white environmentalists” for “steering poison” to minority communities, as he makes the case for lifting up low-income and minority communities with better environmental policy.
    *******************************************************
    But his life took a turn after he was swept up in arrests during a rally following the Rodney King verdict.
    Jones has claimed he was monitoring police activity at the time, but that he met people in jail who changed his thinking.
    “I met all these young radical people of color — I mean really radical, communists and anarchists. And it was like, ‘This is what I need to be a part of,'” he said in a 2005 interview with the East Bay Express. Jones told the newspaper he stayed in San Francisco, and for the next 10 years worked with a lot of the people he met in jail. Months after the King verdict came down, Jones said, “I was a communist.”
    At the time he became involved with a group called Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement (STORM), which described itself as committed to Marxist and Leninist ideas. He also started putting pressure on police in San Francisco, monitoring and drawing attention to allegations of police brutality. He was quoted accusing the police department of “killing black people.”
    He became a vocal critic of the federal government during the Bush administration. He and groups he was associated with assailed “U.S. imperialism” after the Sept. 11 attacks and called the assumption that an Arab group was responsible a “rush to judgment.” He later co-signed the petition calling for an investigation into government involvement in the attacks.

  92. Gauntlet thrown;

    The Plum LineGreg Sargent’s blog
    House Liberals Write Directly To Obama: No Public Option, No Support

    In a letter delivered to the White House moments ago, the two leaders of the bloc of House progressives bluntly told President Obama that they will not support any health care plan without a public option in it — and demanded a meeting to inform him face to face.

    The not-yet-released letter — the first joint statement from progressives since news emerged that Obama might not address the public option in next week’s speech — is their sharpest challenge yet to the president, given the extraordinary sensitivity of this political moment. The letter urges him to mention the public option in his speech.

    “Any bill that does not provide, at a minimum, a public option built on the Medicare provider system and with reimbursement based on Mediare rates — not negotiated rates — is unacceptable,” reads the letter, which was sent over by a source. It was signed by Reps. Lynn Woolsey and Raul Grijalva, the two leaders of the Congressional Progressive Caucus.

    “A health reform bill without a robust public option will not achieve the health reform this country so desperately needs,” the letter continues. “We cannot vote for anything less.”

    “We look forward to meeting with you regarding a robust public option in any final health reform bill and request that that meeting take place as soon as possible,” the letter says.

  93. Is the Obama Kool-Aide wearing off?

    It’s not even 2012, and Sarah Palin, the “lightweight” Caribou Barbie stupid dumb right-wing inexperienced unqualified unaccomplished religious wacko birther enabling nut that came from Wasilla, has already defeated President Obama.

    She has trounced Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid.

    She has trumped MoveOn, ACORN, and Obama’s mass army of volunteers at Organizing for America.

    She has out-demagogued the three stooges of MSNBC Keith Olbermann, Chris Matthews, and Rachel Maddow.

    Oh, and she did it with Facebook notes.

    Read that again: she did it with Facebook notes.

    The notion that Obamacare would include panels making end-of-life decisions for Americans had floated unnoticed in the ether for months, before Palin’s Facebook note dated August 7, 2009 – ominously warning of “Obama’s death panel” stocked with “evil” government “bureaucrats” who would deny care to the “sick, elderly, and disabled.”

    Now, let’s keep in mind that Mrs. Palin is (should be?) little more than a celebrity curio at this point.

    She holds no elected office.

    She is not a party official, nor the head of any chartered political organization. She is not a Fortune 500 businesswoman, not a powerful member of the prognosticating pundit class, not a cited academic authority.

    She is a private citizen. But, oh, what a private citizen!

    Health Care
    Two Liberal Groups Target Obama Over His Position on Public Option

    By Dan Eggen

    Two major liberal groups launched petition drives Thursday demanding that President Obama endorse a public-insurance option as part of his drive for health-care reform.

    The efforts by MoveOn.org and the Progressive Change Campaign Committee illustrate the widening fissures within the left over how to overhaul the nation’s health-care system. Obama will address the issue in a prime-time speech to Congress next Wednesday.

    Many Democrats and liberal groups have been alarmed by what they describe as signs of possible retreat by the White House on especially important issues, and they argue that jettisoning a public plan would amount to a betrayal of those who supported Obama’s historic candidacy last year.

    “We worked so hard for real change,” the PCCC petition reads. “President Obama, please demand a strong public health insurance option in your speech to Congress. Letting the insurance companies win would not be change we can believe in.”

    PCCC spokesman Adam Green said the petition was sent to 150,000 supporters, who will also be encouraged to use Facebook and Twitter to broaden the effort and provide a direct connection to the White House.

    The MoveOn petition says the group is “counting on your to fight for bold change on health care — including a strong public health insurance option.”

    MoveOn.org, one of the nation’s largest liberal advocacy groups, has about 5 million members.

    The petitions are the latest sign of disaffection on the left with Obama, who has also faced criticism from progressive groups over White House policies on gays in the military and national security. Obama also faces concerted opposition on health care from Republicans and conservative groups, who have objected strongly to the public-insurance proposal and who have sponsored noisy protests during community meetings in the past month with congressional Democrats.

    In announcing Obama’s plans to speak directly to Congress, some administration officials have signaled that the president may soften his support for a public option or at least leave the door open to other proposals. Such hints have angered many on the left, who have come to view a public-insurance plan as the cornerstone of major reform.

    MoveOn wrote in its message to members that Obama “is under immense pressure from conservatives in both parties — and some advisers — to drop” the public option.

    This is not the first time that a Democrat has come under fire from the two groups, which also sponsored a recent ad campaign castigating Sen. Ben Nelson (D-Neb.). Green said the PCCC petition targeting the president will be joined by an ad campaign in coming days featuring ardent Obama supporters to “summon up the high energy and spirit of the 2008 campaign.”

    “We’re directing that energy toward pressuring the White House to do the right thing and publicly demand the public option,” Green said.”

    This guy points out that if Palin can take down Barry O’Bumbler with a facebook page,……barry is in some deep trouble.

    “I wish I, a private citizen, could write some Facebook notes and get the kind of health care bill I wanted.

    It is, as Hillbuzz.com put it, “truly, truly remarkable.”

    If Palin can manage to throw Obama off message with Facebook, I shudder to think what Palin can accomplish with the entire right-of-center electoral apparatus behind her at the top of a national ticket.

    When the Democratic Congress finally passes its Palinized, Obamagutted health care non-reform bill with nothing in it resembling cost control, competition, or anything remotely progressive, the epitaph should read:

    “Here lies health care reform: killed by Facebook, buried by Obama.”

    By Facebook. By Sarah Palin’s Facebook notes.

    You don’t have to agree with Palin’s policies to be wowed by this — or to get a kick out of seeing the misogynist, working class-hating East Coast manchild geeks get their butts handed to them by this PTA mom. This is populism at its most stunning.

    Whack job? Depends on your politics.

    But lightweight? Ha! Whatever you say, Begala.

    See you in 2012, private citizen Palin. Do your thang, babe. Lightweight your way right to the Oval Office.

    Godspeed.

  97. Cook Political Report: ‘A dangerous slide’ for Democrats

    On the heels of predicting that House Democrats could lose 20 or more seats in next year’s midterm elections, the Cook Political Report is continuing to ring the alarm bells for the majority party.

    “No question, August proved cathartic for voters and chaotic for congressional Democrats. But way before the town hall meetings during recess, there were ample signs for Democrats to fear for their careers in 2010,” wrote Cook Political Report House analyst David Wasserman.

    “Even if Obama and Democrats are just as popular next November as they were last November, they might stand to lose five to ten seats in the House based on the altered composition of the midterm electorate alone. The latest public opinion diagnostics, however, point to a dangerous slide. As voters’ views of Obama and Democrats’ handling of health care has dimmed, their inclination to elect Democrats to Congress has waned.”

    Wasserman noted that 2010 could shape up to be the election of “angry white seniors” who are the least supportive of President Obama’s domestic agenda and are poised to turn out in large numbers to the polls to express their displeasure next year.

    For any Democrat representing a swing district filled with seniors – think Reps. John Adler (D-N.J.), Jason Altmire (D-Pa.) or Kathy Dahlkemper (D-Pa.), to name a few – the downturn could be especially worrisome.

    But as Wasserman noted in an interview with POLITICO this week, red-district Democrats who are able to effectively distance themselves from the administration are the ones most likely to survive a down year.

    “It goes to show that voting behavior in Congress matters at the end of the day.” Wasserman said. “Right now, we’re looking at a wave cycle, but the question is will it be a small wave or a major wave. And it matters how these freshman and sophomore members vote to determine how big a wave it will be.”

    (BO is going to destroy the Democratic party…too much…too fast…too inexperienced)

  98. I just saw Pelosi on the nightly news, looks like she may have gotten a couple of new botox injections or a full on face lift. She seems to took forward to the brawl that is to take place next week over healthcare. Poor thing she’s just too dense to realize the party is OVER!!! Taken down by Hillaryites!!

  99. confloyd…I thought the exact same thing…it looks like a face lift…her face is smaller, tighter and her jaw line is stronger…definitely had work done…

  100. s, or maybe she thought she would get a lift to go with the new lift she got from the taxpayers of this country. ( jet)

  101. I know Byron York is a Republican, and some of this is complicated and above my paygrade, does anyone here have any informed opinions on this???

    Health care reform means more power for the IRS

    By: Byron York
    Chief Political Correspondent
    September 2, 2009

    There’s been a lot of discussion about the new and powerful federal agencies that would be created by the passage of a national health care bill. The Health Choices Administration, the Health Benefits Advisory Committee, the Health Insurance Exchange — there are dozens in all.

    But if the plan envisioned by President Barack Obama and Congressional Democrats is enacted, the primary federal bureaucracy responsible for implementing and enforcing national health care will be an old and familiar one: the Internal Revenue Service. Under the Democrats’ health care proposals, the already powerful — and already feared — IRS would wield even more power and extend its reach even farther into the lives of ordinary Americans, and the presidentially-appointed head of the new health care bureaucracy would have access to confidential IRS information about millions of individual taxpayers.

    In short, health care reform, as currently envisioned by Democratic leaders, would be built on the foundation of an expanded and more intrusive IRS.

    Under the various proposals now on the table, the IRS would become the main agency for determining who has an “acceptable” health insurance plan; for finding and punishing those who don’t have such a plan; for subsidizing individual health insurance costs through the issuance of a tax credits; and for enforcing the rules on those who attempt to opt out, abuse, or game the system. A substantial portion of H.R. 3200, the House health care bill, is devoted to amending the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 in order to give the IRS the authority to perform these new duties.

    The Democrats’ plan would require all Americans to have “acceptable” insurance coverage (the legislation includes long and complex definitions of “acceptable”) and would designate the IRS as the agency charged with enforcing that requirement. On your yearly 1040 tax return, you would be required to attest that you have “acceptable” coverage. Of course, you might be lying, or simply confused about whether or not you are covered, so the IRS would need a way to check your claim for accuracy. Under current plans, insurers would be required to submit to the IRS something like the 1099 form in which taxpayers report outside income. The IRS would then check the information it receives from the insurers against what you have submitted on your tax form.

    If it all matches up, you’re fine. If it doesn’t, you will hear from the IRS. And if you don’t have “acceptable” coverage, you will be subject to substantial fines — fines that will be administered by the IRS.

    Under some versions of health reform now circulating on Capitol Hill, the IRS would also be intimately involved in how you pay for insurance. Everyone would be required to buy coverage. The millions of Americans who can’t afford it would receive a subsidy to pay for it. Under the version of the plan currently under negotiation in the Senate Finance Committee, that subsidy would come through the IRS in the form of a refundable tax credit. Under the House plan, the subsidy would come directly from the Health Choices Administration.

    In either scenario, the IRS would be the key to making the system work. Before you could receive any subsidy, whether through the IRS or not, the Health Choices Administration would have to determine whether you are eligible for it. To do so, the bills under consideration would give the Health Choices Commissioner the authority to demand sensitive, confidential information from the IRS about individual taxpayers. The IRS would have to provide it.

    Under current law, it is a felony for a government official to release taxpayer information in all but the most limited of circumstances. One such exception is for law enforcement; the IRS is allowed to give taxpayer information to prosecutors in criminal cases. The information can also, in some instances, be released to the Social Security Administration and the Veterans’ Administration for the determination of benefits. The health care bills would change the Internal Revenue Code to permit the IRS to give similar information to the vast, new health care bureaucracy.

    That means the personal tax information of millions of Americans would enter the system whether they want it to or not. “There’s a mandate to buy insurance,” says one Republican House aide. “You have to buy it. You have millions of people who can’t buy it without a subsidy, so they will have no choice but to accept the subsidy in order to buy insurance, and then the Health Choices Commissioner will have access to their tax records.”

    “How many hands would this information go through?” asks a GOP source in the Senate. “What are the quality controls? This increases the risk of misusing this information.”

    Some versions of the bill even permit the release of confidential taxpayer information for decidedly less pressing reasons. In H.R. 3200, the IRS would be required to provide taxpayer information to the Social Security Administration for the purpose of helping Social Security officials find qualifying seniors who can then be encouraged to enroll in the prescription drug program. “There is no precedent for using taxpayer information for the purpose of identifying people to go out and advertise to them,” says the House expert.

    So far, there has been little substantive public debate about the integral role of the IRS in nearly every aspect of the various national health care proposals. But people who are closely involved with the process are deeply concerned about what they view as a massive, and in some senses unprecedented, expansion of the Internal Revenue Service.

    First, they wonder whether the IRS can handle the new demands. “There is a sense at the IRS that their purpose is to collect revenue and not to implement all sorts of other programs,” says a second Senate GOP aide. “Also, the IRS isn’t necessarily great at doing what it does already. How is it going to determine whether 300 million people have health insurance?”

    Second, they are concerned about anticipated abuse of the system. “You’re going to have lots of fraud,” says the House source. “People claiming lots of affordability credits or refundable tax credits. The IRS is not going to have the resources and expertise to police this stuff.”

    Finally, there is a third concern, more fundamental than questions of whether the IRS can handle the job: Should the IRS be involved in health care enforcement in the first place? As seen in the town halls across the country in August, many Americans are concerned about the coercive nature of the proposed national health care system. Handing the IRS the power to monitor every American’s place in the system worries them even more.

    Backers of the Democratic bills are betting that the handouts involved — giving people money to buy health insurance — will outweigh concerns about privacy and coercive government. Perhaps. But before Congress makes any decision on national health care, voters should know just what it will involve.

    *****************
    cash for clunkers and just the wait for reimbursement sure does not inspire this…

    please feel free to educate…

  102. S, Hillary wanted a mandate and the OO did not. I don’t know where it stands but you have to have a mandate otherwise it will just make the premiums go up even more. The same people will still get their healthcare at the er, rather than paying a doctor. The IRS will take your fine out of your income tax and that is the way it should be. People that can’t afford it will be subsidized by the govt. Some people just don’t want to pay for healthcare. Those are probably the ones that don’t want a Canadian style fix.

  103. confloyd, have you looked at the 133% Poverty Level that ObamaCare is going to use for income basis for subsidy. It’s absurd. I have been quoted 895.00 per month for coverage with a huge deductible, no prescription coverage, etc. This bit about not being turned down or preexisting conditions is hooey too IMHO. The company will just raise everybody’s premiums.

    Around $2,000 is the 133% poverty level. That means that my husband and I can only get that amount of money in order to qualify for the subsidy. What the government does not add up is that with all they give to welfare, medicaid, housing, food stamps and wic, free electric bills .. most of these people get way more $ a month than I do but I still have to foot out the above costs on my own.

    This plan won’t work for me .. it’ll take money out of my pocket that I don’t have.

  104. confloyd and dot48…as I mentioned, especially with O’s current 5 competing bills all being juggled in the air…this all gets very confusing and complicated…but for people like me that are trying to keep up and understand what is going on…it sounds like we are getting screwed…

    for example, i posted twice that article chris hedges wrote entitled ‘this is not reform, this is robbery’
    and according to him, he says:

    The bills now in Congress will, at best, impose on the country the failed model in Massachusetts. That model will demand that Americans buy health insurance from private insurers. There will be some subsidies for the very poor but not for anyone above a modest income. Insurers will be allowed to continue to jack up premiums, including for the elderly. The bankruptcies due to medical bills and swelling premiums will mount along with rising deductibles and co-payments. Health care will be beyond the reach of many families. In Massachusetts one in six people who have mandated insurance still say they cannot afford care, and 30,000 people were evicted from the state program this month because of budget cuts. Expect the same debacle nationwide.

    “For someone my age who is making $40,000 a year you are required to lay out $5,000 for an insurance premium for coverage that covers nothing until you have spent $2,000 out of pocket,” Himmelstein said. “You are $7,000 out of pocket before you have any coverage at all. For most people that means you are already bankrupt before you have insurance. If anything, that has made them worse off. Instead of having that $5,000 to cover some of their medical expenses they have laid it out in premiums.”

    **************************************

    so, we, the insured, have to come up with $7000 before our insurance kicks in…I don’t know, this sounds like we just make the insurance companies richer…especially for people who don’t spend that much in a year on health visits…or for people who believe in alternative medicine…

    just saying…this sounds like we are getting screwed…

    and then the other big question I have, is that as of today, there are 6.2 MILLION KNOWN people out of work…that is not counting the ones that have already fallen off the labor stats…so what happens to all of them?

    does the federal govt subsidize all those millions plus the poor and low income??? because the people not working are really no income

    there are alot of unanswered questions…that is why I think Byron York’s article will hit alot of nerves and generate even more questions…

    plus the IRS to regulate health for over 3 MILLION people…just asking here…

  105. Joe Klein is fanning hysteria while attacking the anti-Obama “garbage”:

    http://swampland.blogs.time.com/2009/09/03/it-gets-worse/

    Michelle Cottle reports that there are Republican-sanctioned efforts afoot to have parents not send their children to school on September 8 because the President is scheduled to address the nation’s school-children that day and they are afraid that he will fill their little heads with socialist propaganda. That is somewhere well beyond disgraceful.

    Could I just say that the intensity of this getting pretty scary…and dangerous? We are heading toward a cliff and the usual brakes of civil discourse are not working. Indeed, the Republicans have the pedal to the metal–rushing us toward a tragedy far greater than the California health care forum finger-biting Karen describes below. I’m usually not one to panic or be overly worried about the state of our country–even when we do awful things like invade Iraq and torture people, we usually right our course before long–but I have a sinking feeling about where we’re headed now. I hope I’m wrong.

  106. S and Dot 48, we need the public option to get the asshole insurance companies to go down on their rates. If he and his dimocrats enact this kind of bill when at this moment in history we could have the public option, there will be civil war. I am telling you people can’t afford 7,000. a year. I think the reason they gave my daughter who is doing her very same job for the very same company “no benefit status” is that she is morbidly obese”. So they are going to get coming and going.
    I will try and post these two video’s I found over at cannonfire. You will be surprised!

  107. admin, I have seen that, quiet a few Presidents have talk to school children, after I have seen how many POTUS’s have done it. I think Obama should be able too also. Otherwise, we are all going to be called racist. I think this country is sitting on a powder key getting ready to blow. It would be nice if we had a real leader and a teleprompter Potus.

  108. thank you for your response confloyd…because i am sitting here thinking how in the world does say, a father making $40,000 a year who has an a stay at home wife and kids…and has to pay a mortgage, income taxes, maybe state income taxes, property taxes, home insurance (in florida the wind alone is over $2500 a year) and now O’s health reform mandate for his family…

    ok, add that all up and then in addition add food for the year, gas, utilities, clothes for the kids, school functions and supplies and needs, car payments and maint, etc…all on $40 grand?

    what the hell is left? how does a family save a penny? how do they save to send the kids to college? How do they save for an emergency (hurricane, earthquake – I have gone thru both)

    …and then on top of everything else…the poor dad or mom of a family has to be worried about losing their jobs in today’s climate…or lose their home?

    then what?

    the President is doing everything backwards…he is not doing anything to ensure the security of Americans…he is making things so much worse…I said it before and it bears saying again…no wonder people are screaming in the streets…and now, they are even biting people’s fingers off…O is turning americans into cannibals…

    and sorry, Joe Biden, maybe some pals in DC think the stimulus is working…tell that to the middle class…these people are so out of touch with reality…

    …ok…deep breath…

  109. Still, to get blindsided with so much advanced warning — arguably 15-years worth, given the Hillarycare debacle

    ===============

    Maybe they thought that after 15 years of evidence that Hillary was RIGHT, the public would be ready for her kind of plan.

  110. I hear he is negotiating with Snowe regarding the possibility of using the public option as a definite back up in case the pharmaceutical companies and med insurance groups don’t shape up within a set amount of time.

    ===============

    Sounds like the ‘trigger’ proposal that moveon.org is writing Rahm Emmanuel about. Which could easily make the public option a sealed placebo that will NEVER get used.

  111. To clarify. Moveon.org is writing Emmanuel to OPPOSE the ‘trigger’ thing.


    Moveon.org wants public option, opposes ‘trigger’
    Sep. 2nd, 2009 | 01:09 am
    In an E-mail sent on July 7, MoveOn.org asked its members to lobby the White House on the issue of healthcare reform. Citing an interview given to the Wall Street Journal, MoveOn.org has aimed a pro-public option barrage at White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel who, the group says, has been floating a trigger option that “would undermine the public option, and put off real reform for years.” “The ‘trigger’ is a trap to kill health care reform. It would delay the public health insurance option for years, even though we’re facing a health care crisis now. Without a strong public health insurance option to compete with private insurance companies, health care costs will continue to skyrocket and millions will remain uninsured. And a decision to delay is really a decision to deny: even if the trigger conditions are met years from now, big insurance companies will start the fight all over again to stop the public option from going into effect,” MoveOn.org explains.
