Henry the 5th this is not. "Teabag, anti-government people?" "Extremists?" A little more contempt please, Mr. President, for you are addressing more than half of the nation here. And pray tell, how exactly does this rhetoric fit into the "Post-Partisan" lexicon?
As obnoxious and shrill as the Iraq war protesters became, we do not recall President George W. Bush ever deriding them in this fashion. What does that say about the man? And what does the above say about our current Commander in Chief as well as those soulless ghouls who carry out his bidding?
The Heritage Foundation explains that November 7's gang rape wrought a $2.6 trillion bill which raises taxes by $700 billion on a nation which already faces record deficits and 10.2% unemployment, and massively expands a Medicaid program that currently provides substandard reimbursement rates, is bankrupting states, and is bankrupt itself. Now that's something to celebrate, presuming the destruction of the Great Republic is your aim.
Throughout all this one is forced to ask continually, "why?" The 47 million uninsured? Please even The Obama Himself dared not employ that fiction in his last address to the nation regarding health care. Because major organizations such as the American Medical Association, AARP, and major pharmaceutical companies endorse it? As Mr. Dick Morris and friends point out, this support was bought and paid for (extorted?) with tax-payer money long ago, and each of these players are beginning to realize they have been had; (witness The Health Insurance Industry) a realization the Bishops and the Catholic Health Association will soon come to when the Stupak amendment is exposed as pure vapor.
It is little wonder that the chorus declaring the American Democratic Party an organized crime syndicate disguised as a political party is growing. The only question now is how much looting of American treasure - fiscal and moral, present and future - will they accomplish in the meantime?
