- Rep. Jim McDermott (D-Wash.) compared those who oppose Obamacare to the South in the Civil War saying, “This is Gettysburg, this is the big battle and after this the Civil War was pretty much down hill for the South. That’s really what’s happening here for the forces against Obamacare.”

McDermott appeared on C-Span’s Washington Journal on Wednesday. The host asked if President Obama would compromise spending in other government departments in order to continue funding the implementation of Obamacare.

I saw that this morning. The hostess, Greta, aka Rosemary's Baby didn't bat an eyelash.

The rhetoric of rats v. us is not one of them against an opponent. They regard us a blood enemies. We must realize this if we are to save this republic.

“They (the rats) regard us a blood enemies.”

They do, indeed. And we must reciprocate in kind.

When our Marxist Occupied Government blackmails SCOTUS into Unconstitutional decisions there SHOULD be a Civil War, and not just a cold one like there is right now.

“The president has to stand up and fight at this point like he’s never fought before in his life,” McDermott continued.

Perhaps instead of fighting he should try leading by example. Why not end the executive branch's exemption from obamacare? Why not enroll himself, his family, his executive branch appointees and their families in the exchanges? His propagandists have yet to explain why Obamacare is good for us but not the executive branch.

McDermott is a living example of liberal hypocrisy and deceit. He is a self proclaimed socialist, but he owns a million dollar home on Seattle's Queen Anne Hill.

However, when the court ruled against him in his lawsuit over illegal wire tapping, he called in Bill Clinton and held a big donor fund raiser so he wouldn't have to cough up any of his own money to buy his sorry soul out of a jam.

McDermott is one senile, sick SOB with no clue of America history. ObamaCare is NOT like Gettysburg. It’s more like Pearl Harbor, 9-11-01 or the current invasion of America by the Mexican government.

He’s actually right. In our time we are also trying to prevent slavery to the federal government!

McDermott should be in jail for his open and unapologetic corruption as a member of the House Ethics Committee. BTT

Sounds like someone who would have felt at home in Germany in the 1930’s, IMO.

If the obamacare fight is in the war against statism, then I fear he’s right.

Uhm, this is about representative Jim McDermott, the dimwit from Washington state, not Jim DeMint.

This pustule of subcutaneous cystitis is why we must vote almost all incumbents out of office and only elect men and women of high morals and character.

I agree, Gettysburg has a very good parallel to Obamacare. A reckless headlong rush to certain doom, Pickett’s Charge.

Dear Rep. Jim McDermott (D-Wash.),

This is not even the First Battle of Bull Run, yet.
I figure we have a “John Brown at Harper’s Ferry”, and then, “Fort Sumter”, yet to begin.
