    Obama FAIL #1235

    You don't go to a debate about promoting a Government run program and bash another Government run program.

    maybe someone should tell him just who actually runs the post office ( hint....it has something to do with a mirror ).

    ..............................................

    Does he expect UPS & FEDx to run the healthcare too ?

    Since his comment, I have heard "UPS" on TV more than ever before as the news people keep repeating what the prez. said.

    If you watched B.O.'s town hall, do you remember the little girl (11) who asked B.O. a question ?? That had to be a cuteness factor plant !!

    Her mom was a big contributer to the election of B.O. and the child was at the Easter egg roll at the whitehouse.....no, no connection there.

    The fact that there wasn't a little booing tells me that the entire audience was Hussein Friendly!!

    If I had been there I'd have at least coughed 'bull****' in my hand!! :sick:

    Take off your Bama Bashing sun glasses for a moment, and listen to his analogy.....responding to the paranoia and the miss-information that the right wing is feeding their sheep, is that the Gov't option reform plan will bankrupt the private insurance companies and succomb to single payer, because it's unfair. When Pres Obama, is simply using the model that the USPS (who compete's with UPS and FedEx) has not bankrupted their competition...So what do you have to be afraid of competing with the gov't ??? Where's that Capitalist competative spirit ?

    They were all bused in.
    And they had pre-printed signs, unlike the other side, who had handmade signs. So that brings up that question of who is organizing these events ?
    Also just what was their carbon footprint used ?
    .................
    another staged event, plain and simple just like all his other campaign events.

    If you would take off your Bono(rose colored) glasses for a second. When you see the polls and the American public objecting to a plan you support, the game plan is to label people as racist, un-American, miss-informed and using "scare tactics".

    Interesting that you would use the sheep reference here. We saw a town hall meeting yesterday where obama friendly sheep were bused in for the audience. Meanwhile the real crowd that should have been in that town hall was left outside.

    Politicians are getting an earful in meetings where they actually allow the average citizen to attend.

    The Libcons tried to dismiss the opposing view as being an organized effort to disrupt. Instead they are now hearing so much opposition across the country that they can no longer ignore the concerns many voters have.

    :sad-little:Where is the Capitalist competetive spirit ?????
    Obama's example ---ups fx vs post office
    1. UPS AND FED X ARE PROFITABLE
    2. USPS IS SEVEN BILLION IN DEBT ---another gov success story !!!!!
    3. Most importantly --UNFAIR GOV COMPETTION
    The Post office has a government MONOPOLY on first class mail. Every time the the post office raises the stamps by one penny --it is an additional one billion in revenue. Instead of improving the first class mail MONOPOLY ----they are talking about reducing service --closing post offices ----BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY ARE SUBSIDIZING PACKAGE RATES FROM MONOPOLY STAMP MONEY. One price to ship county to county or across the country. Anyone with half a business brain would realize the post office could not offer that ----except by UNFAIR GOV COMPETTION .
    Health care will be the same deal ---WAKE UP !!!!

    It is the perfect storm example of why the gov should stay out of health care.

    No, just Ditto Heads.....What polls are you buying into. People voted in change. They pulled the plug on the party of "NO", or "Stay the Course". Americans want affordable healthcare. Spewing and regurgitating miss-information, yelling, kicking and screaming at Townhall meetings, swaztika signs, nazi references from your party mouthpieces, teabaggers and wacko birthers. First these people have to deal with the realization that Obama WAS born in the US before they can tackle something important as healthcare. Simply put, chess pieces for the Ins /Rx corperations

    As much as you like to pretend, but the average citizen doesn't act like mis-informed, disruptive teabaggers ,repeating falsehoods drilled into their heads. Not only do the majority of average citizens support healthcare reform, but so does the Healthcare industry Doctors, nurses and staff....Good luck spinning that tidbit....

    You've have just made Obama's point, UPS and FedEx are still surviving/thriving (even in this super reccession) in terms of all the right wing flack about the gov't option plan eliminating the private healthcare Industry. Excluding the mail monopoly, when the USPS aggressivly made a push in their small package efforts, UPS and Fedex were crying foul. Well guess what, both private Companies have rolled up their sleeves, competed, and are still strong and it doesn't look like we'll be wearing Postal uniforms any time soon, now does it ?
    Now if you want to compare letters and parcels to the healthcare of human beings, knock yourself out.


    In terms of services, the USPS is darned good. You get your your mail everyday, don't you ? What else do you expect, Sarah Palin in a postal uniform and a safari hat to deliver it to ya.....

    So when is bho going to apologize the usps workers for insulting them?

    Is he going to invite them all over for a beer ?

    Who is the next group that he will piss-off?

    I think that means we get invited too. I should ask for a Heiniken or Corona perhaps as a symbolic gesture of our move to socialism or our new health care for illegal immigrants policy?
