Skip to comments.Dems slam Bachmann on health care claims
Posted on 10/08/2009 8:25:58 AM PDT by ButThreeLeftsDo
For the second time in less than a month, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) has painted a bull's eye on a Minnesota Republican, targeting Rep. Michele Bachmann.
The Democrats' "Call 'Em Out" Internet campaign was launched last month, featuring Gov. Tim Pawlenty's criticisms of President Obama's plans to overhaul the nation's health care system.
The new posting, launched today, lambastes Bachmann's similar criticisms of the health care bills moving through Congress.
"Too many Americans live with the painful consequences of our broken health care system to let Bachmann's reckless lies go unchecked," the Democrats said in an e-mail. "So this week, we're calling her out."
The campaign takes its cue from Obama, who said last month that "we will call you out" on misrepresentations of his health care proposals.

Like Sarah, she’s got the right instincts.
“If you’re drawing flak.....you’re over the target.”
Can someone suggest a new cliche, I’m going to scream if I read this one again!
no offense :)
I agree. She must have hit a nerve!
“If it doesn’t fit — you must acquit.”
I try to give till it hurts Dims.
There for a minute I actually thought the Dems were after Rangel for his misdeeds — But that would be too much to ask, since the Dems can always hide behind their media parrots.
If you have a few extra dollars, she can probably make good use of them. If your Rep is a rotten one, adopt someone like Michelle and help her out.
She’s not my Rep. but I send her money, just the same.....
And who broke it? You guys! Unprincipled statist vote-whores like LBJ! Now you think you can stand there and bemoan the situation, as if the solution would be to do something YOU support??
I think, unlike taking down Sarah, this “call them out” policy could easily backfire on them. It will bring to light alot of issues the media has been ingnoring. It might actually work to her advantage.
Last week, Bachmann raised the specter of schoolhouse abortions if the House Democrats' health reform overhaul becomes law. She suggested that the provisions of the bill would allow young girls to get abortion referrals from what she referred to as "sex clinics."
Interesting that the article doesn't mention any attempt by the democRATs to actually refute the claim.
I got their email. My response was short and began with the word “bulls***” (without asterisks).
Acorn thinks they have power in MN, since they managed to steal the election for Franken.
That’s the wining strategy. My Rep is solid, so I look for needy ones to adopt. The reps can always give some of their cash to other needy reps.
Truth-to-power Bachmann is awesome!
My response to those who say Obamacare will not cost us? Do you REALLY think there is $400 billion from fraud to be cut in Medicare? Ask Senior citizens. Medicare already denies much in health care to Seniors. That’s a $400 billion lie that needs to be ‘called out’.
What are you talking about? Every time they talk down to Sarah, about five minutes later she has them slowing turning on a spit over the flames of public opinion dripping statist fat into the embers. Every time they say something snarky about her, it legitimizes her and puts her more squarely in the public eye.
And like someone said at one of the town halls, if there is that much waste and fraud and you know where it is, why isn’t it already gone instead of being used to trade for new statist intrusion?
“If the patient is screaming you hit the sore spot.”
Time to get the crowbar then.
They’re really proud of that ‘Call You Out’ website, aren’t they? ROFL!
Let them be proud of their lies...there are 50-1 websites on the internet calling out THEIR lies.
How about: if the construction worker’s hollering at you, you got the goods.
People are beginning to realise that Obama is a socialist, said Ms Bachmann. And that is not the way America is.
“Through a rock at a pack of dogs. The one that yelps is the one that got hit.”
They should just change the name of the party to Alinskycrats. Pick a target, personalize it, polarize it...
Throw up through a tough trough on the thoroughfare.
I meant how they polarized her, and took her down during the election. But, she is one tough cookie. She didn’t quit. I give her props. I am a little sad that she didn’t find her voice sooner. It would be a different America. Perhaps people just weren’t ready to listen then but , I agree, they are listening now.
Hey - be nicer to him - he’s a lot like you! ;)
Who cares what the Dims think. How about that?
Yeah, as well as many took to her during the campaign, she needed some experience at how the game is played at that level. Once she understood the ground rules, she seems to be kicking ass and taking names.
She should go on the floor of the House and demand an apology from the Democrats. She should call upon the President to demand civility from his party. It won't happen, but it might be some good theater.
Nicer? You try and live with him for 40 years... ;-)
I really like her. I feel that she is more like one of us, than one of “them”. I know they are afraid because given the chance, she would clean house. They are going to fight her to the death. I hope she is ready.
I like her too and I’m proud of her. I think from what I’ve seen, she could pull off a credible House race in ‘10. Can’t really tell if she’s ready to run for President / VP, but surely she will be by ‘12, as far as she’s come in only a year.
I mean, she twitters, and Obama mentions her by name in his speech. How’s that for impact?
I am kind of glad that she learned this lesson right out of the gate. She is young enough to bounce back, and luckily for her, Obama has alot more water under his bridge now than she has under hers. He has given her so much ammunition that she really can fight “the powers that be”this time! This time she will hold all the cards. She earned it.
It’s a common theme with the left -
the actual egregious policies or behavior are ignored,
but if you point them out, YOU’RE the bad guy.
Just as long as it doesn’t get quiet. “It’s always quietest right before the SAM goes up the tailpipe.”
Okay. If you’re not making waves you are not underway.
