Thanks for the link, narciso. Another excellent piece by her. I wonder what the Connecticut ladies will think.

Exactly right, Cecil, about the conflation in your post at 8:26.

So its so unfair to call them "Death Panels" its really end of life counseling sessions.

My response?

The Nazis called them showers, too.

Careful, gmax. The other day I began to explore a comparison between Obama and Hitler, and my sanity was called into question.

Seems Andy McCarthy has sanity issues also.

The point was to show that if Pelosi wanted to engage in Nazi comparisons, the health-care policies of Nazi Germany had far more in common with the health-care policies of the Democrats than with those of the conservative opposition, which wants health care kept private and reforms to be market-based.

O Bloody Hell

> This is the dumbest thing I've ever seen and if Congress goes along with this legislation written in the sand, they all deserve to hang from jibbets around the Capitol.

...And how is this different from what they already deserve, praytell?

Aside from hysterically jumping to conclusions based on a couple of remarks, and badly-spelled, poorly referenced weblogs, does anyone have any actual evidence of anything? I would bet that not a single one of you has even read so much as a sentence of the proposal.
I've read that Republicans tend to be more gut-driven and gullible than Democrats. I can see now that it is absolutely true.

As for "the proposal"--my understanding is there are 5. What kind of dingbat insists we immediately sign on to a >1000 pp. document no one has seen?

1. It started way back more than a year ago: breaks campaign promise that he would accept public financing for his presidential campaign

2. Obama signs earmark-laden spending bill, yet promised to be a different kind of politician in Washington

3. Obama blocks lists of visitors to White House

4. let's not forget the promise: "no more secrecy" and "when there's a bill that ends up on my desk as president, you the public will have 5 days to look online to find out what's in it before I sign it." But does he keep promise?...NOPE!

5. Obama closes door on openess

6. told voters on the campaign trail that he would not raise any taxes on middle class voters making less than 250k/year (but the reality is setting in on that one)

7. Obama promised to work on the "complete repeal" of DOMA (defense of marriage act); yet there's nothing about it on the White House website on civil rights issues

8. advocated pay-as-you-go system, but now on drunken spending spree with Dems and Speaker of the House.

9. White House secret deal with BIG PHARMA and here.

10. Obama falsely claims AARP endorsement

I'm sure I have forgotten some of the *broken* promises, so feel free to add more.
