The stupid is just raging today.

First off, Reich is not an adviser to Obama. Has never served either officially unofficially as an adviser. He's a professor at Cal berkeley. He was the labor secretary under Pres. Clinton in his first term. He writes op-ed pieces. He is known for his sarcasm. He was obviously be facetious.

Stop grasping for straws. Your stupid is starting to overwhelm you...

...This was a speech given in 2007, more than a full year before President Obama was elected and before a bill was even written up for vetting....

I've noticed you have trouble telling the difference between serious and sarcastic.

You are so desperate for anything that reinforces how you think, you aren't using your brain! The fact that you think FOX is real... I know why you're freaked out, I've watched that channel for maybe two minutes and felt my blood pressure go up. They are all about scaring the crap out of you!

Ah, yes, 2007, when Obama was saying these things on tape, he was addressing the SEIU, so he felt quite at home.

Over time it may be that we end up transitioning to such a system. For now, I just want to make sure every American is covered...I don't want to wait for that perfect system..

Pleasanton Mom - I posted this on your other thread, and I still mean it:

I have to thank you for pushing me off the fence. I have been following your postings for months now, silently absorbing your thoughts and concerns. And I do greatly appreciate your passion for the public process, but it was your lack of coherent response in several postings on similar threads in the last few days that helped me decide.

I called McNerney's office this afternoon, spoke to a very nice staffer and voiced my opinion that he should support the HCR bill.

I am saddened that your thoughts and responses on these forums have declined into nothing short of paranoia. You could not answer specific questions about specific provisions in the bill, responding only that Glenn Beck said we are in danger of the government taking over "everything" and that the Democrats in power are some sort of evil cabal. Nonsense.

Please take a day off, collect your thoughts, and start posting again in the sane, rational tone you carried 4 months ago, before the radical right took over your keyboard.

We need to get Obama and and democrats out of office and soon. Obama is making Hitler look like an amateur. He needs to go and soon but I suspect it will happen.

Rat Turd claimed, "Obama is making Hitler look like an amateur."

Um. I don't know where you get your information, but I'm pretty sure that Obama didn't set up death camps, and that Hitler didn't try to protect his citizens from out-of-control insurance rates and a lack of health coverage.

Again, another radical right-wing nutjob shows us why the Republican party is going extinct...

Don't miss out on the discussion!
