    The White House has figured out a way to squash those evil, un-American, uninformed people that are against socialist health care at the town hall meetings. By questioning "plants" that they've invited to the meetings.

    It doesn't stop there either. I know you won't agree with these folks and their purposes but just consider the fact that these people are suppose to be the kind of people who support in many general principle ways of what President Obama and his adminstration is suppose to really be about.

    This is from Democracy Now so it's liberal/progressives making these claim, not some rightwinger/Townhall/birther type.

    Also turns out there is concern that the Obama adminstration at the request of the military may destroy what little is left of the Posse Commitatus Act.

    I understand you may not agree with many of these folks but also understand that your unalienable right to speak out and address greivances with gov't are equally threatened when these folks are suppressed by over reaching gov't. BTW, many progressives more and more are speaking out that the Townhall protesters are doing the right thing even though they disagree on which grounds you protest. Some progressive commentators have even urged progressives to join the protest ranks in opposing Obamacare.

    I'm not surprised. It was blatantly obvious when Obama rode through a hell raising crowd in NH to attend a very friendly townahall meeting inside.

    MC4YOU2 Wherever I see Trump, it smells like he's Putin.

    Without plants the whole human race would cease to exist. I have a few in my own house. Bet George is still trimmin' his with a chainsaw down there in Crawford.
    If you want your opinion voiced at one why not attend in person?

    Plants? Like G.W. Bush using Jeff Gannon as a reporter? Probably easiest gig that male prostitute ever had. Honestly, do Republicans really not see their own hypocrisy these days?

    I don't deny the hypocrisy. I'll grant you the pont that republicans also stage their own townhall meetings.

    In my opinion Obamas reeked of too many hypocrisys. He staged a quiet event and had to drive through a raucus protest outside to get to his staged event. While holding his staged event he made several comments that appeared to mock some of the loud townhalls being held else where that were not staged. He went overboard with his. It was like Hitler hiding in his bunker denying the russians were getting ready to enter berlin.

    Obama tried to get america to change their tone in these meetings with his staged event. If he can get those that oppose his plan to whisper their objections then he can pretend there are no objections. As long as those opposed continue to raise hell he can not deny their existence.

    His staged event in NH was a slap in the face of voters everywhere. His staged event reeked of the arrogance he continues to show. He thinks he can somehow drag and prod us all in the same direction as if we are cattle. He loves to set quick deadlines to get things done in order to get things pushed through before the opposition has time to mobolize. the honeymoon is over and he now finds he will have to do a much better job of selling his vision. In the meantime he has a lot of voters who are :censored2: because his plan is not inclusive of everyones input.

    Forgive me, but I will be patient with Obama. As patient as I had to be for the last eight years. I suggest you do the same. And next time the Republicans are in power, I will enjoy seeing them resist being what they've always been--no tax big spending corporate whores.

    A "no tax big spending corporate whore" republican is much better for this country than a over taxing, and an even bigger spending, socialist dictator.

    President Palin? Jindal? Gingrich? Cantor? Sanford? Steele? Limbaugh? 7 more years it is then.

    Not so.
    According to some sources there is a plan to do away with the 22nd amendment; because bho is such a young guy and he could be president for many more years.
    Can you say president for life ?

    The White House has the full congress to pass legislation, yet they failed in its first significant attempt to do so. Members of both Houses are feeling the heat from back home and are amazingly trying to stay clear of Obama and Pelosi to a certain degree. Just a couple of months ago, everyone of these politicians were lathering all over Obama, Pelosi and the rest of the so called "leaders of change".

    There has been attempts at doing so going back to the days of Bill Clinton, and beyond. I doubt that will happen during BHO's single term as President.
