There’s been so much in the news to blog about of late, and owing to my blogcation, I really don’t know quite where to start. How about Obama’s “non-quest” for socialist healthcare. I cannot sugarcoat this; Obama is plainly lying about his end goal for healthcare. Of course, the White House issued a statement yesterday, claiming that his comments are being isolated and taken out of context, but I really can’t see how this is taken out of context:
Or, especially, this:
As Hot Air’s Allahpundit said:
Turns out the same guy who became a tax-cuttin’, traditional-marriage-supportin’ centrist just in time for last year’s election was also a fan of socialized medicine back in the day, before he needed independents to win the office he was after. Who knew?
And blue-dogs are in the hot seat as they return to their districts for various townhalls on healthcare for the August recess. They are being asked excellent and informed questions by an angry and fed-up public, which they either cannot or do not answer forthrightly. Keep it coming, I say.
Here are some questions you can ask, if you so desire.
Of course, liberals are claiming “mob rule,” of which Michelle Malkin responds: THIS is what mob rule looks like. A timely reminder for them, I say.
And I’m sure you may have seen this Obama/Joker poster floating around the internet lately:
There are the usual hysterical cries of racism (?), but as Drudge gently pointed out, Vanity Fair did the exact same thing to Bush a year ago. Oh, the hypocrisy! (I must say, though, that the artist’s rendering of Obama to the joker is of a much higher order artistically than the Bush one. IMO.)
And, perhaps most astonishingly, the White House is actually asking for snitches: Anyone who might be making “fishy statements” about Obamacare, either via email or in “casual conversation”, should be reported to firstname.lastname@example.org at once. This falls into the category of “You just can’t make this stuff up.” I actually heard of this first through an incoming link to my own dear old blog (you can see it at the top of the comments section on the right). Perhaps I’m now officially on a watch list. Seeing as I haven’t done anything wrong, I believe I’ll simply raise my middle finger in a brazen virtual salute to proponents of such thuggery.
Call me crazy, but isn’t it a little disturbing for the White House to be calling for informants? What is this? Statist East Germany?
Here is a PDF/screenshot of the White House page. As to the “facts?” Read the damn bill, morons! The questions people are asking come complete with citations from the very bill these representatives have apparently not read. Unbelievable.
