DNC Idiots

Published by at 10:47 am under All General Discussions,Obamacare

I am sitting here this morning doing what many Americans are doing, reading up on the Town Hall confrontations and the stupid claims by the liberals under siege in DC this is all a concocted, well, organized, well dressed PR game. I guess they would know best about stumped up PR stunts.

What I am finding is images and movies of normal people standing in long lines waiting to complain to their representatives. And in response we see liberal goon squads out yelling in faces. If there is anger, most if it is on the lunatic left fringe, which comes in with ‘muscle’ from the fading unions.

I will only link to one or two as interesting examples of the faux violence brewing in the country and how the Obama administration and DC liberals are horribly failing in the PR game. PR works with a compliant audience that is receptive. It does not work when the audience is up in arms and in protest. In fact, the attempt at spinning and lying usually destroys the credibility of those trying to push the PR.

It is happening this month as Obamacare runs into Main Street USA. Checkout the videos and images from the early part of the Russ Carnahan meeting and just look at the people in line, and realize they will also be lining up to vote in 2010.  

Also check out the photos of the angry mob lining up in Denver to confront Nancy Pelosi. These are average American voters. And not only do they get out and protest DC’s direction – they talk. They talk to their friends and families, who talk to their friends and families. They are eyewitnesses whose credibility outshines anything the news media thinks it can brain wash us with.

This is the year the DC PR machine runs into reality – and loses big.  The only bigger loser (in 2010) will be all those liberal snobs in Congress who picked a fight with the American voters. Dumb move.

    The problem that our representatives don’t seem to understand is that for the last many months we have been watching them on TV toting Obama’s plan as the only to save money, though it costs 1 trillion dollars, how it will benefit us all, though 70% of us are happy with the health care plans we have. I have written to all Colorado representatives and many others as well, and have not heard a word from them. So when one of them comes to my neighborhood, naturally I’m going to visit. If they start with the same words that they have used before, but I know them to be lies, then I think it is my one chance to be heard. I guess it is a bit loud, when 200 people show up thinking that it is also their one chance to be heard.

    If one of these representatives called a town hall meeting and said, I’m here to listen to each one of your concerns, I will be here 10 hours if necessary, and produce a microphone, there would be no need for shouting.

    I read this post and agree with it but then I think back on the position of the centrist via several threads here against the far left-wing and the far right-wing “Holier than thou” ideology.

    A problem that I have with the centrists and the far right-wings is that their ideology do not match the ideology of the American Founding, which I’m embracing more and more each day.

    I’m reading Montesquieu’s “The Spirit of Laws right now. Slow reading and takes a while to read it . After all, I understand that it took him twenty years to write this book. Highly recommended reading.

    Unbelievable. BTW, the SEIU was the union that got dragged into the Blagojevich scandal. They are also the union that did the most for Obama in Illinois.

    When the Thug in Chief tells them to get in peoples’ faces, when he says he wants his critics to shut up..these are the guys that come out and do his dirty work.

    Meanwhile Chris Matthews says that most of these people who show up at these rallies are racist. How does he know? Well they don’t support Obama..what other explanation can there be? Moron.

    It is interesting that people like Matthews have no problem criticizing Steele, or Rice or Clarence Thomas. They would be outraged if anyone called them racists.

    People just might get fed up with all this. They thought they were getting post racial and post partisan and instead they got riots.

    I’m not at all convinced that we will have another election. Given the suicide leaps these congresscritters are taking, I wonder if they know something we don’t know. It is unusual, to say the least, that the congresscritters are acting this way i.e. not taking calls from constituents, not having town hall meetings, or sneaking out of these meetings, not listening to people and voting against the wishes of the majority of the people. They don’t seem worried at all about their next election and it seems they are willing to fall on their swords for Obama in the short term. What is going on with this?

    Given the last election, with the false registrations, the dead voting, the illegals voting, Philadelphia, at least, dumping ballots in the ballot boxes, votes later found in the trunks of cars and democrats in charge of the elections in so many states, I have no hope for a fair election if we should have one. 2010 is more than a year away. If Obama has accomplished so much in changing us to a socialist county in 7 months, what will he have done by that time?

    You don’t agree with the President, you are a racists. Wow Nelly, there must be a lot of racists in this country……..many disagreed with our last President, white racism? That must be the reason!

    According to Rasmussen, Obama’s polling has improved over the past several days as he has encouraged strong responses to anyone who questions him. That will only encourage him to do more of the same.

    But is overall approval is not improving, only the “strongly disapprove to strongly approve” numbers. He is still shedding overall support but seems to be energizing the zealots.

  7. CatoRenasci says:

    The last time we had significant political violence in the United States was in the South during Radical Reconstruction which came to a head in the disputed election of 1876.

    The current situation – a Congress and President imposing radical measures on a population that strongly opposes them – is looking more and more like the radical Republican Congress and President (though in the case of Andrew Johnson, somewhat reluctantly) attempts to impose the more radical aspects of Reconstruction on the South in the aftermath of The War.

    Big difference this time: the Army does not occupy the country (watch out for Congress trying to repeal the Posse Comitatus Act) to enforce the will of the radicals.

    The real question is what will it take to stop this. Will the really radical measures be slowed or stymied until the can be reversed in 2010 and 2012, or, will the radicals manage to enact the legislation before elections can reverse it.

    Then what? Will there be resistance? Will the resistance be civil disobedience? Will it be armed? What will the military and police do in this unprecedented circumstance. The police are mostly unionized – there are contradictions between their generally conservative instincts and their union traditions and authoritarian inclinations. The military is more of an enigma: we have ZERO tradition of the military intervening in politics other than during Reconstruction. The tradition of civilian control is as strong as anything in the nation, but most of the officer corps and most of career enlisted are conservative, see the external threats the Democrats deny, and committed to the Constitution.

    I wouldn’t be surprised one way or the other if the “strongly approved” goes up or down. But my gut feeling is that the “strongly approved” won’t go up too much because there won’t be that many zealots leftovers to boost it up.

    After reading this article:

    What is the definition of Obama’s “moral equivalency” and how does his “moral equivalency” compare to “moral relativism”?

    Unlike most of you mortals, I am a speed reader… so… I read the entire Health Care Bill proposed by the Democrats and President Obama…
    It involves something about medicine and how doctors take care of you…

    I really don’t mind a public option as long as there is ALWAYS a private option that is separate from government interference.

    Here is how I believe it is going to play out in practice:

    People will get “supplemental” insurance to cover what the government doesn’t. The government will eventually force people into the “public” plan but conserve costs by withholding services. So we will be forced to pay in, and get nothing in return. We will then have to increasingly rely on the “supplemental” insurance for anything beyond “a pain pill”.

    In the meantime, the government creates thousands of Oxycontin addicts to ensure votes to maintain the program. “If you cancel the program, your pain pills will be cut off” sort of rhetoric.

    So at the end of the story we end up requiring two policies to get what we used to have with one.

  11. crosspatch says:

    Also, medical care is going to become pill-based. The government answer for everything is going to be a pill of one sort or another. That is why the pharma companies are so strongly behind this program. Take a quick poll of surgeons and see how they stand on the issue, I would be interested in the result.

    My doctor told me straight out a couple years ago that he despises the pharmaceutical companies.
