Mr. Levin also reminded listeners all of the name calling and “vitriol”, as Mr. Obama called it, we on the right have been called since the beginning of the campaign. Here’s a partial list: bitter, angry, white American, gun clinger, Nazi, racist, terrorist, un-American, etc.
Our freedoms are being destroyed and our country, at least the one I learned about in history and grew up appreciating and respecting, is being dismantled by a radical thug who has surrounded himself with other radical thugs, all determined to change America into something I have no interest in being a part of. For that reason I will fight. I don’t care that Joe Wilson yelled out and called Mr. Obama a liar. Mr. Obama did and continues to tell untruths in that, early last month, the U.S. House Ways and Means Committee defeated an amendment which would have excluded illegal aliens from Mr. Obama’s health care bill. The Democrat-dominated committee voted 23-18 to defeat the measure introduced by Rep. Dean Heller (R-NV), which would have required the use of the existing Income and Eligibility Verification System and the Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements System before care is dispensed.
In other words, there would be no way to verify the citizenship of those seeking care under Obama’s government plan.
CNN reported last month the Congressional Research Service, the nonpartisan policy research arm of Congress, found that without a citizenship verification system illegal aliens would receive subsidies. Mark Krikorian, executive director of the Washington-based Center for Immigration Studies, told CNN the report “undermines the claims of the president and others that illegal immigrants would not be covered under the House version of the bill.”
“Democrats can keep claiming all they want that illegal immigrants will not be covered in this bill. But their actions speak louder than their words. Democrats have rejected opportunities to close the gaping loopholes in this health care bill that will allow illegal immigrants to participate,” House Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Lamar Smith said after the CRS report was released. “If President Obama is committed to ensuring that illegal immigrants do not benefit from the bill – as he says he is – why not include the same verification mechanisms in this bill as already exist for other federal benefits programs?”
In addition, undocumented immigrants who live in the United States for a certain period of time during the year would be classified as residents and would meet the substantial presence test required under HR 3200 to have health insurance, according to the report.
Ms. Pelosi said Rep. Wilson’s outburst during Mr. Obama’s speech shows the “bankruptcy” of Republicans’ ideas on health care, the Washington Post reports.
In fact, it shows how the Democrats in league with the corporate media are attempting to ram Mr. Obama’s totalitarian health care plan down the throat of the American people and stifle opposition.
There is no doubt that the time and place weren’t the best but the left is now using this as a distraction. It’s what they do best. They now have ammunition they can use to draw your attention away from what is really taking place.
Today Thomas Sowell described Obama’s speech before the joint Houses, “a masterpiece of rhetoric and a shameless fraud.” In other words, he’s a liar.
I believe it was also Sowell who said that it is not in the nature of conservatives to be “protesters” and “demonstrators”. Evidently more and more of us conservatives have had enough and it’s time to fight back.
In discussing the stupid heckling incident by Republican representative Joe Wilson of President Obama, Glenn Greenwald discusses what is really crazy - the Media's insistence that questioning the President, ANY President, is crazy:
Eugene Robinson today absurdly calls the GOP's disrespectful behavior at Obama's speech "un-American." Right-wing contempt for Obama is often petty, deeply emotional and ugly -- just like right-wing leaders themselves. But the demand that the President be venerated and treated as royalty is far more "un-American" than disruptive transgressions of etiquette. Wilson's heckling was juvenile and dumb, but that's all it was. If only a fraction of the media dismay devoted to his two-second breach of "decorum" had been directed to, say, rampant presidential lawbreaking, or the implementation of a torture regime, or the slaughter of hundreds of thousands of people in our various wars, we would be much better off.
Glenn goes on to discuss how Politico still thinks it is crazy to question the Bush Administration's statements in the runup to the Iraq Debacle. The reality is, as I have written for years now, the Media is absolutely incompetent on every level. It is not just partisan and biased; it simply fails at its basic mission of holding the government accountable. By now, this is a dog bites man story.
Many have said, even some on the left, that Mr. Obama was angry during his speech. Some have mislabeled that as his passion for what he’s trying to do. Don’t buy it. He’s angry like a brat. He’s not getting his way and there are people daring enough to stand up to him. He’s a liar. Fight back. We aren’t talking small potatoes. We are talking the destruction of our country.
