Today on Beck’s show, MN Congresswoman Michele Bachmann was on to encourage everyone to make a house call to their congressional representatives tomorrow in D.C. at noon. Obviously phone calls and emails are being ignored by our EMPLOYEES (read = representatives), so it’s time to go to OUR house and tell them how we feel.
We don’t want PelosiCare; we don’t want ReidCare; we don’t want ObamaCare – we want the government to LEAVE US ALONE! Our relationship with our doctors is ours and ours alone – BUTT OUT!
Tonight on Hardball, national braintrust Chris Matthews’ ‘Politics Fix’ featured Joan Walsh of Salon.com, and Ken Vogel of the Politico. Topic of discussion was Barney Frank’s recent surreal townhall meeting on healthcare, where he berated damn near everyone who dared question him. What does Joan Walsh think? Barney is a hero to the liberal movement!
Well, bravo Joan.
Walsh continues and calls this behavior “thuggishness,” and questions why “we are treating these people like they deserve an equal place at the table.” Excuse me? ‘Deserve a seat at the table’? What about the 1st Amendment don’t you understand, Joan?
Then she says they’re falsely trying to portray themselves as regular folks, but they are really being organized by “right-wingers” like William Kostrick who, she says, is a birther and is a member of “We the People.” (*GASP!*) We the People? For SHAME, William!
Katy Abram is next up for Joan’s lunatic bat, saying she’s being portrayed as some kind of ordinary housewife, but she’s really a “leader” of the “9/12 Movement, which is Glenn Beck‘s right-wing insane movement!” (*DOUBLE GASP!*) She even congratulates Lawrence O’Donnell for doing a “good job” on her a couple of nights ago.
Zack Lane, student of University of Colorado, Boulder, stood up to ask the president a question at a recent townhall in Colorado. I’ll let you be the judge. Lane says he doesn’t want philosophical arguments or generalities; he just wants a straight answer to his question:
How in the world can a private corporation, providing insurance, competing with a government entity who has no profit to worry about, no worry about property taxes, local regulations, etc. compete with that?
Obama’s answer? I’ll leave that up to you. Can you please tell me what it was? All I heard were philosophical arguments and generalities like Zack asked for. What was Obama’s direct answer to his question?
Today, Texas Republican Congressman went on MSNBC’s Hardball, and talked with fill-in Lawrence O’Donnell about recent townhall protester, Katy Abram, to whom O’Donnell served a crap sandwich yesterday. Culberson said that Katy was his new hero, and O’Donnell proceeded to ask him the same lame questions about the wonderfully efficient programs like Social Security and Medicare.
Well, I could go on, but you’ve all seen O’Donnell in action. The only thing I can really add at this point is O’Donnell obviously likes to hear himself talk, but also that Culberson sweeeeetly pointed out to O’Donnell that he was demonstrating the very reasons why MSNBC’s ratings are in the tank – THREE TIMES he got this jab in. LOL…
I love me some John Culberson – and O’Donnell needs to leave Katy out of it – she doesn’t need the hassle. And Lawrence? If you can’t let someone answer a question, the STFU!
