Obama Ridicules GOP Fear Mongering Of Obamacare

"One congressman said that Obamacare is the most dangerous piece of legislation ever passed," Obama said in Largo, Md. "Ever, in the history of America, this is the most dangerous piece of legislation. Providing -- creating a marketplace so people can buy group insurance plan, the most dangerous ever."

"You had a state representative somewhere say that it's as destructive to personal and individual liberty as the Fugitive Slave Act," he added. "Think about that. Affordable health care is worse than a law that lets slave owners get their runaway slaves back. I mean, these are quotes. I'm not making this stuff up."

"And here's one more that I've heard. I like this one. We have to, and I'm quoting here, we have to repeal this failure before it literally kills women, kills children, kills senior citizens," an incredulous Obama said. "Now, I have to say, that one was from six months ago. I just want to point out we still have women, we still have children, we still have senior citizens. All this would be funny if it wasn't so crazy."

You're incorrect, it was Clinton who was informed about Al qaeda hijacking planes and did nothing about it. That's how al qaeda received flying lessons during his term.

Florida will be just fine with DaBammyCare__there is all sorts of interest among folks who've never been exposed to the benefits of health insurance.

Florida Blue Cross and Aetna are spending enormous sums on TV advertising__Blue Cross is even advertising on the radio.

Jiminy Cricket, Homer! Please tell me you AT LEAST know about the backlogs in the Department of Veterans' Affairs and veterans having to wait forever to receive benefits!
And tell me you AT LEAST know that Medicare and Social Security aren't going to be sustainable!
How on God's green earth can you possibly even think the government can manage over 300 million people's medical care?
Unless you really don't know anything about anything.
Sure there's backlogs, I blame the Republicans. Both are sustainable don't believe the rightwing hype, they are just trying to get rid of both programs. As for the last part easy peasy

Chelsea Clinton did it all by her self...

and Dick Cheney is rich and white and Liberals hate him for it...

"Chelsea Clinton and hubby Marc Mezvinksy paid $9,250,000 for a four-bedroom apartment in the celebrity-studded Whitman condominium building on Madison Square Park, city records filed this month show.

That is $1.2 million less than the $10.5 million asking price, and $750,000 below what the building's other two occupants paid for their 5,000-square-foot units. All three apartments are nearly identical, except that the Clinton-Mezvinsky pad is on a higher floor."

My God Grampy. You are quite the liar.
Obama sought out a Community Organizing job after graduation from Columbia.
He was employed by a private church organization - and did't set up any non profit of his own.
Helping people get jobs, get better trained with community help.
And you b*tch about it. You people are truly dumber than sh*t.
My younger brother graduated from Columbia and took a real full time job right after graduation. But, he wasn't a drug addict like Barry.

Why did Obama move to Chicago after graduating from Columbia? He had no family or ties with that area. Now where are the headquarters for the Nation of Islam? Louis Farrakhan's Mosque Maryam is located in Chicago. Farrakhan set him up to infiltrate the Catholic Church. When Uncle Louis called Barack in for a bomb vest fitting Obama ran off to Harvard to seek job training....

I "did't" (your spelling) say Obama set up a non-profit. I stated that job training non-profits were a favorite scam of liberals. They don't work. As an example look at the poor results of the $400 million of Stimulus money Obama frittered away on 'Green Jobs' training.

Nothing wrong with "Helping people get jobs, get better trained with community help." But, that's not the liberal community organizer's goal. They are all for creating and maintaining perpetual reliance of the poor on big government in exchange political support
of the liberal Democrat Party!

Clinton was long gone, he was out of office in January, Bush would have been already brought up to speed by January, mor elikely even before then, when Clinton left office. It's common knowledge Bush ignore the report presented to him by the CIA.
