Democrat poster-child abuse, the nutroots’ pushback, and the continued campaign to silence the Right

Context, people, context: This is the inevitable M.O. every time bloggers and commentators on the right have challenged the Absolute Moral Authority of the Democrat poster child du jour. It happened with Cindy Sheehan. And the military recruiter-bashing thugs at Santa Cruz. And MoveOn.org. And the phony soldier saga. Crush Rush is just the tip of the iceberg. Just ask the mom-and-pop Cafe Press owners who got those cease-and-desist letters from MoveOn.org’s lawyers for daring to defend Gen. David Petraeus.

"Instead of sitting on the sidelines, Republicans need to force the Left out of its ideological infancy and stop this disastrous entitlement juggernaut."

Michelle again mentions FReeper ICWHATUDO's research in this post.

Prayers for her and her family after all the threats she is receiving for her viewpoints!

Actually, that link is to a previous story Michelle wrote about SCHIP. Here’s the long link to the one I’m quoting here:

I’ve read that too.

I wonder what the truth is.

Sounds like a little too much smoke and fury to tell...

The Democrat ‘Untouchables’ remain untouchable by the MSM and the Republican Party. It is the way of the world.

Poor kid, being used by his parents for this disgusting trash. They should take the kids from the parents!

As usual, Michelle is right on target.

Any idea why she hasn’t been on O’Reilly the past few weeks?

The bottom line with the Frost family is that they chose not to have health insurance. They obviously are not disadvantaged in any significant way.

"insurance bloggers quickly found available plans for a family of six with premiums as low as $452/month"

Where can I find some of these insurance bloggers?!?!? That's less than our family plan at work, and our employee health insurance at work SUCKS!! Getting away from them would be a liberation of sorts, to be less expensive would be an added bonus.

If you owned $462,000 in commercial properties and had tenant income from each, would you expect to have the government pay for your health insurance?

I am opposed to the SCHIP program however, I am afraid that Bush will compromise or the RINO’s in the House will vote to override the current Veto.

Mr. Frost, also 26, is known as Halsey. He owns Frostworks, a woodworking and furniture-design studio in Baltimore. His mother, Randy Frost, is a quilt artist. His father is the deputy director of design and construction for the City University of New York in Manhattan. The bridegroom’s late grandfather Frederick G. Frost Jr. was an architect responsible for several public buildings in New York, including Martin Luther King High School in Manhattan..

Scholarship? Yeah, it wouldn't surprise me that these parasites will take whatever handouts they can get. It's tough when you have no family to help you out. /sarc

They were in a car accident, right?

So why doesn’t the auto insurance pay for the medical expenses? Or did they forego auto insurance, too, like they did health insurance?

Anyone see a pattern? Clinton, Gore and Kerry all used phony human props to cite their position on health care insurance.


During John Kerry's nomination acceptance speech during the 2004 DNC, he trotted out his health insurance "poster child", Mary Ann Knowles. Kerry stated that she had to "keep working day after day right through her chemotherapy, no matter how sick she felt, because she was terrified of losing her family's health insurance". In reality, she had excellent coverage with 26 weeks of paid disability leave, but she chose to work through most of her treatment because her husband was unemployed.

Video of Kerry's Speech

Links to story on FR


Al Gore tried this same tactic in 2000 with Winifred Skinner.

Al Gore said, "It brings tears to your eyes. Here's this adorable, elderly woman out in Iowa who's so sick and so poor, that in order to pay for medicines she needs to stay alive, she has to scavenge in a local dump yard for cast-off tin cans."

"She gets a small pension," he said. "But in order to pay for her prescription drug benefits she has to go out seven days a week, several hours a day, picking up cans."

It turns out, as the statement was rectified, Mrs. Skinner goes out zero days a week, for zero hours a day, and that she was only speaking "in the name of" people she assumes must do this.


In 1994, Hillary Clinton used Kathy Bush when citing her case as an example of the high cost of medical care.



Later, investigators found the mother guilty of intentionally making her daughter sick and forcing her to undergo more than 40 needless surgeries, in what prosecutors called a case of Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy.

“Forty-two-year old Kathy Bush had been charged with aggravated child abuse and fraud for bilking thousands of dollars from the State of Florida for medical expenses incurred by her daughter, Jennifer. The mother faces up to 45 years in prison.”

I am not all that sure that the grandparents wealth should be an issue.

Why was this family, from Nancy Pelosi’s hometown, chosen?

I just asked that question in another thread. Does anyone have an answer?

The only reason it is an issue is because their son wants what’s in my wallet.

I’m curious as to whether the grandparents, as part of their estate planning, have taken advantage of annual gifting and if so, to what extent.

It could certainly boost their son’s cash flow considerably and tax-wise not be considered annual income to the family, right?

Normally, I’d say it’s none of my damn business what any of them do with their money but in this case I think it’s a fair question considering they claim to need mine too.

I suspect that the collision was their fault (whichever parent was driving) and that they only had the minimum amount of MedPay. Either that or the legal case resulting from the collision is still in litigation.

We were rear-ended about 20 years ago, and our MedPay at the time was only $5,000. It barely covered our medical expenses, though none of us had a hospital stay. MedPay pays those expenses right away, and then when you finally settle with the other guy who was at fault, all those expenses go into your pocket.

Since then, we’ve carried $100,000 MedPay, just in case.

Wow. I just bought one of those Cafe Press t-shirts, and didn't even realize Moveon had sicked their lawyers on that shirt-selling site.

Proving once again that the leftist loonies are the TRUE torch-carrying dolts of censorship.

I’ve seen talk that they paid for the two tuitions to the private school ($40,000+ a year). Some people think that the family’s priorities might be a bit ‘mixed up’, if you see what I mean.

Exactly. Let them whine and go on bended knee to their family, not the taxpayer. No one should be immune from criticism. Our government is a bureaucratic nightmare, why further prop up this tyrannical force.
