Some snippets from yesterday’s appearance in MO, as heard on radio and gleaned from newspapers and TV reports:
About 400 invited guests attended O’Bobblehead’s event; over 5 times as many citizens turned out for the Republican townhall the same day.
Four hundred astroturfed minions versus over 2225 concerned American citizens who came out on their own, in grassroots fashion, to oppose O’Bobble’s socialist schemes.
Then you have the fundraiser last night: A [generously counted] 200 paid 0bot/HCAN reform advocates were there to picket, versus 2500 O’Bobblecare Opponents/Tea Partiers who filled the streets of St. Louis.
Way to go, St. Louis! People came from all over the bi-state area (IL and MO).
Of course, the lamestream media made it sound as if the groups were equal in number. They had a very tight shot of the Tea Party protesters on one corner (but they stretched way down the street) and then they panned over to the tiny pro-O’Bobble contingent of paid minions on the opposite corner. They reported “hundreds” for each side, when in actuality, it looked like no more than 40 Obot minions versus over two THOUSAND O’Bobble opponents (aka patriots).
There was one photo of the protest in the St. Louis Post-Disgrace: A cropped photo of ONE Tea Party protester carrying “Don’t Tread on Me” flags. They made it a point to say that he declined to be identified. See more at: http://gatewaypundit.firstthings.com/2010/03/2300-turn-out-to-protest-obama-in-st-louis/
It will warm the cockles of your heart.
O’Bobble’s newest meme: We’re going to audit Medicare for fraud and save billions in “waste.” He signed an “executive order”. He’s going to set up “payment recapture audits” that will let government HIRE private contractors to audit for fraud and KEEP a share of the “improper payments” that they discover. So now ACORN is going into the Medicare audit business? Or will that be SEIU? Surely they will ALL belong to a union. So O’Bobble will save “$2 billion in taxpayer money over the next three years,” according to the Post-Dispatch. Money that he can put towards his new socialist O’Bobblecare scheme.
Now, putting aside the curiosity that he somehow already knows exactly how much money is currently “wasted” via fraudulent payments from Medicare/Medicaid over 3 years, one has to ask O’Bobble:
Since you’ve been POTUS for 14 months already, WHY DIDN’T YOU SIGN THAT EXECUTIVE ORDER ON January 20, 2009?
WHY HAVEN’T YOU HAD MINION-IN-CHIEF SENATOR CLAIRE MCCASKILL, A FORMER AUDITOR, ROOTING OUT THIS WASTE FOR THE PAST 14 MONTHS?
WHY HAVE YOU ALLOWED OUR MONEY TO CONTINUE TO BE WASTED FOR THE PAST 14 MONTHS, WHEN YOU KNEW IT WAS BEING WASTED?
BTW, coincidentally or not, Dems in the House want to change the earmark process for FOR PROFIT companies, but not not-for-profit entities.
Amazingly enough, Democrats like Rep. David Obey and even Sen. Dan Inouye oppose it as an executive branch power grab. Obey explained, “the fact is without the earmarking process, the White House and its anonymous bureaucrats would make every single spending decision in government.” [O’Bobble might respond, “Yah, so what’s wrong with that? I am a Marxist dictator, you know.]
“I don’t believe this policy of ceding authority to the Executive Branch on any spending decision is in the best interests of the Congress or the American people. In my view, it does not make sense to discriminate against for-profit organizations. I am not sure why we should treat for-profit earmarks any differently than non-profit earmarks,” Inouye said in a written statement, according to this story:
Gee, Senator Inouye, where ya been? We the People can think of plenty of reasons why O’Bobble wants to treat not-for-profits differently. Don’t ya know that Marxist/Communists hate free enterprise, capitalism, and private, for-profit companies?
Did ya ever hear of ACORN? Wake up and smell the TEA, Senator. Be a patriot. You’re on the right track. You ARE supposed to look out for “the best interests of the . . . American people,” after all. You got it. Stand up before it’s too late. Please.
The best quote of yesterday came from U.S. Rep. Todd Akin, representative from St. Charles, who said, O’Bobblecare is “a threat from within and a danger from Washington D.C.” Way to go, Rep. Akin. Calling it like it is. He GETS it, America.
This from the Post-Dispatch: “One noticeable absence was Democratic Senate hopeful and Missouri Secretary of State Robin Carnahan, who has attempted to distance herself from Obama.” I can’t believe the reporter reported that FACT!
Carnahan, the daughter of a former MO governor and a former U.S. senator, and sister of a current U.S. representative, hopes to cast herself as an “outsider.” GET REAL, ROBIN!
She’s distancing herself from O’Bobble, but she supported the stimulus and supports everything else he proposes. McCaskill isn’t up for re-election this year, so why a fundraiser with O’Bobble? The answer was provided in yesterday’s Post-Dispatch: McCaskill hopes for the proceeds of last night’s fundraiser with O’Bobble, which Robin wouldn’t attend, to go towards ROBIN’S senatorial campaign. She won’t associate with him or be seen with him, but she’ll take the money he raises for her. That’s what I call a Washington outsider.
Finally, here’s an instructive quote from That One, spoken to his minions at the $25,000-a-plate dinner:
“I don’t get worn down. I wear them down. Don’t give up on me now–We’re just getting started.”
That’s how he thinks of YOU, AMERICA. To him, you are just “THEM.”
He’s not working for you. He’s not one of you. He’s not your servant. He doesn’t answer to you. You are “them.” You are his enemy. You are those people in his way. The people he has to wear down, to bully, to dictate to, to run right over, if he has to, whatever it takes to get what he wants–the “fundamental transformation of America.”
He’s the BULLY IN CHIEF, who will keep at you and keep at you until you surrender.
NEVER surrender. NEVER give up. Semper Fi. We can’t let him get started and certainly we can’t let him finish with his fundamental transformation of America. We’re talking about nothing less than the future of our beloved Republic. Let’s SHOW HIM that WE the PEOPLE of these United States will NEVER give up.
WE’RE the ones who are just getting started. Keep protesting. Keep writing your so-called representatives. Work against the election of anyone who supports this Marxist takeover of our government. Work FOR the election of anyone, no matter his or her party, who will restore our country to fiscal responsibility and who respects the Constitution and the Republic envisioned by our Founders.
