Not racism on my part; this is what the Republican Party does. "Obama is president, we need a black man!" "Hillary running for president, we need a woman!" then they parade out their tokens, which, to the more educated, recognize that this is a ruse.

And I agree with you, Atman.

Selective memory or omission? 15 years ago...Democrats, in control, said no to Hillary Care.
Let me say it one more time and you don't have to agree, but Medicare, riddled with mistakes and many, many, many false assumptions, was debated for 1 1/2 years. Now, in the span of less than 6 months, much of which was spent trying to cobble together health care reform in a final package readied for vote, we have to vote? A deadline certain is drawn, erased, moved, drawn again. Medicare cost 65 MILLION in its first year. It now costs over 400 BILLION, yet we were told it would cost 13 BILLION by 2000. What a fine track record on another medically related Government run program. Shall we proceed in a hasty manner and repeat many of the same mistakes? Make many of the same false assumptions? We are told half, perhaps more, of the as yet determined price tag for health care reform, will come from savings squeezed from Medicare. With The Federal Government's track record on recognized savings, would you bank the farm on it? And if that proves to be a false assumption, what recourse is left? Taxes and not just on the rich. Already Speaker Pelosi recognizes a revenue shortfall when she raised the surtax bar from about 380K to 1 MILLION. On that, taxes on all, I would bank the farm. The program we are discussing we before long, dwarf all others. When we add Social Security and Medicare today, we're at over 40% of our budget. Now add a bigger and what will be a fast growing program. What little of our budget will remain for defense, interior, commerce and all other considerations? Damn little. We are fiscally bleeding to death. Oh sure, President Bush and Republicans spent too much Treasury. Today, we're eclipsing the maddening pace they set. But for many on the other side, that's ok. We simply have to spend the money. Oh, really? Debt is debt. Already China is making noise about our fiscal ways. And what went with little note or fanfare just last Tuesday, Treasury sales were, and this is being kind, were flat. Our debt is attracting fewer takers. But lets forge ahead, have a quick vote, not wonder what is written, what T is not crossed or I dotted. Just do it. Just spend, baby, spend.
Rush? Yes, that is exactly what we are doing. Rushing to see a take over of 1/6th of our economy. That's a sobering undertaking that should not be rushed. And damn it, read the dam final bill for all to hear, Elected and Electors alike. That's not too much to ask on such a monumental undertaking. Perhaps as did the ever odious Rep. Waxman, we could further mock WE THE PEOPLE by employing a speed reader? It's a joke to some, Rep. Waxman, Rep. Conyers. It's not a joke when close to or over a TRILLION  BUCKS is the opening ante. Keep in mind, whatever final figure we hear, is good for just the first ten years. And that assumes no false assumptions.

This shouldn't be a Republican v Democrat battle, which is how the votes are mostly lined up right now.

Because it is a human v Health Care Industry battle. Why should any human be spouting the Industry view? Because they have figured out how to manipulate the fears and insecurities to make some of us into zombies. For the life of me, I cannot imagine how you can be against evidence of efficient proven health care delivery. Cheaper better. Every other industrial nation and many non-industrial nations have a far better system. What's the problem understanding that?

I'm sorry, I'm getting confused with these two threads.

I know a couple of them, and I am always astounded at what they appear to think, til I read it on one of those wingnut sites.

Like now, with health care, I hear the drumbeat of 'Obama is rushing the legislation through without due deliberation. Wow, all of a sudden, that line is everywhere. Somewhere they got a zombie lab where they try this bullshitake out til they get some kind of spike in affect. Ok, that's the line start the morse code beat: rushing the legislation. 15 years after it should have passed, btw.

I would disagree on the racist view. As much as I detest racism, deeply detest with every fiber of my being, I hold a considerable disdain for the charge of racism without proof. We, a loosely used 'we', tend to hurl charges without regard to fact. I would also take exception to Mr. Dobbs hating brown people. He's a real tiger on border security. On that, I join him. The statement that Mr. Dobbs hates brown people was born on The Left. Of course, no proof was forthcoming. Just make a personal charge.
Maybe some are now beginning to appreciate, even understand, how unsettling many found it when all manner of comments without the foundation of fact, let alone provided proof, were plastered against Mr. Bush and ALL Republicans. Now that President Obama's ox is being gored, it's just not fun anymore.
The folks, birthers and others, caterwauling about Mr. Obama's citizenship, have problems. Let them be. They'll be yesterday's news before long. Some will persist. We can lump them with the 9/11 conspiracy kooks.

I believe that this is 21st Century racism. They can't believe that a black man could be elected as president, and this is they way they present it.

New Poll: Less Than Half Of Republicans Believe Obama Was Born In U.S.

Less than half of Republicans believe that Barack Obama was born in the United States of America, a new public opinion poll finds.

Only 42 percent of Republican respondents in a Research 2000 survey, conducted for the liberal website Daily Kos, said they thought Obama was a natural born citizen; 28 percent said they did not believe Obama was born in the United States; 30 percent said they were not sure.

The responses, which were gathered after several prominent conservative media personalities fed suspicion that Obama was unconstitutionally holding office, show the extent to which the conspiracy has taken hold in the GOP.

That only a plurality of Republicans were willing to acknowledge the president was born in America is nothing short of astounding, considering the preponderance of evidence that confirms his Hawaiian birth.

The conspiracy has a regional flavor. Overall, even including Democrats and independents, only 47 percent of respondents in the South said they believed Obama was born in America, with 23 percent saying he was not and 30 percent saying they were unsure. In the Northeast and Midwest, the percentage of respondents who believe Obama was born in the U.S. was over 90 percent.

Ninety-three percent of Democrats say the president was born in the United States, as do 83 percent of independents.

An email to the survey's authors, asking for the number of individuals surveyed in the Research 2000 poll, was not immediately returned.

Joe The Plumber: I Would Never Let "Queers" Near My Children

Joe the Plumber, aka Samuel Wurzelbacher, sat down for an lengthy interview with Christianity Today to discuss his views on the future of the Republican party. Wurzelbacher took the opportunity to speak out against gay marriage, which he says is wrong. The unlikely conservative spokesman went so far as to say he doesn't allow openly gay people "anywhere near" his children.

The word "queer," Wurzelbacher noted, "means strange and unusual."

Christianity Today: In the last month, same-sex marriage has become legal in Iowa and Vermont. What do you think about same-sex marriage at a state level?


Wurzelbacher: At a state level, it's up to them. I don't want it to be a federal thing. I personally still think it's wrong. People don't understand the dictionary—it's called queer. Queer means strange and unusual. It's not like a slur, like you would call a white person a honky or something like that. You know, God is pretty explicit in what we're supposed to do—what man and woman are for. Now, at the same time, we're supposed to love everybody and accept people, and preach against the sins. I've had some friends that are actually homosexual. And, I mean, they know where I stand, and they know that I wouldn't have them anywhere near my children. But at the same time, they're people, and they're going to do their thing.

In the vein of George W. Bush and Michael Steele, Joe the Plumber also indicated that he wouldn't run for public office until the Lord had given him a cue. "God hasn't said, 'Joe, I want you to run.' I feel more important to just encourage people to get involved, one way or another. If I can inspire some leaders, that would be great." Joe added: "I don't know if I want to be a leader."

And my how you flatter yourself freely with this imagined adoration.  Methinks your wounded pride and attempt to color Ali as an ad hominem attacker are both pure BS.

I'm afraid it speaks volumes about your true character, especially if you try to hold yourself up against Ali. 

 
Thank you, Peter.

Dood,  I'll be mocking you as the unrepentant liar that you are, until you man up and remedy that.

Until then, please continue to enjoy your status as the first and only proven liar I've encountered here on RP.

Let me guess, you got your "proof" from the same guy who emailed that tip about the staged troop meeting, right?

Dood, I thought you were ignoring me?

I'm sorry, you're right, Beak, it is unfair of me to question the lack of verification in HotAir's "Obama's troop encounter was staged" story.  Their straw grasping is clearly beyond reproach.
I don't know what got into me.

So what you're saying is that it's OK for HotAir to engage in unsubstantiated rumormongering, because eventually someone there will actually do some checking to back up their story?  Will they publish a retraction if they find out that the suggestion contained in the anonymous email was untrue?  Does the Pope live in the woods?

Ah.  I see this slur claims you as a fan too.  Sad to see the use of such veiled insults, but not unexpected.

Newsflash Ali — there is no filing system, real or imagined.  Just my good memory — and that I know how to use Google to ferret out stuff posted on RP.  But hey, like other past slurs against my character here, I'm sure this one will raise its head again and again, no matter how many times I explain it to y'all.  I'm afraid it says a great deal more about the person who utters the slur than it does me.

 
Too bad you aren't using that brilliant brain for something more constructive.
