Perhaps Obama should just sing “Trouble in River City” from the Music Man.

He is selling us a “Think Healthcare” system to scam us.

(or perhaps we should call him the “flim flam man”)

I can’t wait to hear the “spontaneous” “hard-ball” questions the “randomly selected” audience of “citizens” will ask of our Dear Leader.

It should be very informative. Maybe I’ll watch.

You want ABC to give the opposition air time? Couldn’t that help sway the American people against “The Ones” programs? That will never do, silly rabbit.

Just like his ‘townhall’ in Green Bay - if you research who the questioners are, you will find they are partisan Dems or people who have something to gain by these health care policies going through.

And one can bet that Gibson won’t be in a chair higher than Obama’s, leaning forward with his glasses down on his nose, asking trick questions that Obama could never answer.

Barry's Socialist Medicine:
The efficiency and long lines like the Dept of Motor Vehicles
The spending acumen of the Pentagon ($500 hammers)
The compassion of the Internal Revenue Service
The favoritism of Washington Lobbyists
The promises of the Dept of Interior to Native Americans
The computer security of personal data like Los Alamos
The transparency of the Obama Administration
The science accuracy of Glow-Bull Warming

Yup, sounds great!

I don't even watch the bullsh#t State-Run Media propoganda at all.....I haven't since way back two years ago, when the promotion of The Messiah was launched and it's been downhill ever since.

I have not watched MSM for the past 12 years or more, actually.

So *very* well put. I hate these totalitarian dog anf pony shows. The media has ended even the pretense of objectivity and is there only to get Obama’s message out. Obama must be removed from office if our constitution is to survive.

In 1954, Willie Mays, in an emphatic stroke of Byzantine whimsy, made his over-the-shoulder catch off of Vic Wertz. What was it not unlike?

Doris was concerned with the rash she was experiencing in her oxter. Where was this irritating rash located?

Define the word "Ximelolagnia."

I just heard him pronounce that unless the cost of medical treatment is curtailed (as he sees fit) "we will be forced into unprecedented tax increases, huge deficits, and reduction in state services..."...

Didn't he do all of that LAST month?

In his AMA speech he said that health care costs were part of the reason for the loss of profitablity in the American auto industry.

Union care packages to former workers were what tanked the US auto industry.

And I can bet double or nothing that a week or two after this "interview", it will be revealed by us, Breitbart, NewsBusters, etc. that several of the audience asking these "tough" questions are a bunch of ringers from some Dem frontgroup. You watch...

I hope they have Nancy Snyderman on, who is willing to tell it like it is without the emotion and who is willing to say that all is not necessarily lost in our current health care system. I’d love to see her on Mark Levin’s show.

And I’d also like Obama to address when his mother became ill with ovarian cancer. The early stories stated that his mother was living in Jakarta, Indonesia when she became ill with ovarian cancer - a particularly deadly form of cancer if not treated early. If these stories are correct, how can he blame the United States medical system for her care when by the time she arrived back in the states, she was likely in the latter stages of a terminal illness and arrived unemployed? I’m wondering why she wouldn’t have qualified for Medicaid, although I don’t know what state she was in or what the qualifications may have been.

I hope they’re intereviewing Daschle and why older people should be taking their lumps and dying rather than seeking treatment. I hope they’re going to follow up on the remarks Obama made to the New York Times about discussions on the Hill for a government representative to talk to your family about compassionate euthanasia.

On second thought, I can hope all I want but I think most of America knows by now what hope really meant.
