NBC's David Gregory Says Obama Has "Lost Control of the Health Care Debate" - Video 8/15/09
Freedom's Lighthouse ^ | August 15, 2009 | BrianinMO

Posted on 08/15/2009 6:49:54 PM PDT by Federalist Patriot

Here is video of NBC Moderator of Meet the Press David Gregory saying tonight that President Obama "has lost control of the Health Care Debate."

Gregory was providing analysis after President Obama's Town Hall Meeting today in Grand Junction, Colorado. Gregory said that the very public debate being played out across the nation in Town Hall Meetings is not where Obama wanted the debate to be.

But that is exactly where it should be - with lawmakers hearing from the American people. Obama and the Democrats never intended for this to happen. That's why they planned to ram Health Care through before the August recess, but were not able to do so because the public is so uneasy about what they are trying to do. . . . . (Watch Video)

“Town Hall Meetings is not where Obama wanted the debate to be.”

Right, he would have rather rammed this thing down our throats with no debate or discussion. I just hope the majority of the public is on to the dimoKKKRATS so that no more of this cr@p legislation will go through. I hope his agenda fails.

Has he admitted his wife’s role in the financial fiasco yet?

The American people are not stupid. And Obama is lost without his teleprompter.

"Down our throats" was actually his second choice.

I just don't get it. Do these stupid “journalists” think that because they are part of the “fourth estate” they will get the same health care as the members of congress? Are they that naive? I guess they don't know that they will have to get in line like the rest of us.

It amazes me that he says there is nothing written that says “death panel” anywhere...well of course there isn’t, schmuck! Does he think the American people are stupid? What else do you call a group of people, who come together to make choices??? Yes, a “panel”. In this case, this particular panel is going to make life & death decisions over the American people...so Sarah nailed it - a “death panel”! Zero’s problem is that he thought no one would read it, & just keep buying into his bull!

Shucks! Its just been one rude awakening after another for the imposter & his wife!

Obama has lost control of his presidency. He is a serial liar, a fraud, on his best day he is a sham. He is a socialist. He is corrupt. Everything about him is phoney! He has NO presentable past. WHY?

AND, He shows definite signs of mental instability.

I think he has lost control of his presidency as well, and I believe he will be considered a "Lame Duck" for the duration of his term.

They don't realize they have awakened a sleeping giant with the American people who have sat back and took what they dished out for YEARS, never more. We have a movement and we are coming.

While we are at it, bundle the Cap & Trade Bill, Drill Now and all the things WE want into this TeaParty Movement. Let's Git er' done. This is not just about Health Care any longer, what do we have to lose. Go for Broke as that is the alternative to not doing anything, BROKE all of us.

What debate?

You mean the beat downs handed out to blacks with an opposing view point or any other citizen questioning provisions that decimate liberty.

Obama (aka Rahm Emanuel, aka poor stuttering professor quirrell) never wanted a debate.

Keep pouring it on! It isn’t enough to stop one socialist bill or even all of them. We must reverse the socialist trend for as long as it has been occurring over decades if we want to accomplish the goal of taking back our country!

The only way they got cap and tax past the house was to ram it through at lightening speed. With Non-Amnesty Amnesty they tried to rush that through too, without letting it see light of day. These clowns are criminals, we need to get legislation to have a better review by the public before any legislation is passed.

Such is the nature of debate in a free country - it isn’t under the control of a central authority.

This is not a concept that anyone at MSNBC is likely to recognize, let alone respect.

What part of “... a government OF the People, BY the People, and FOR the People...” does the Executive branch, the state run media, and Democrat Congressinal leaders not understand?

As time goes on it becomes more and more clear to me that BOZerO is educated way beyond his ability to understand.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Regarding: Health, Education, and Welfare

Return Health and welfare back to the county level where it belongs. And...Get government completely out of education on every level.
