"There are none so blind as those who will not see."

Fortunately, albeit a bit belatedly, many are finally seeing what they've wrought...

C'mon, Hawkeye, you're just a neo-con! Barack Obama can't be held responsible for the unfolding disaster before our eyes since he only has good intentions and besides, IT'S ALL BUSH'S FAULT!

Anyway, when it comes to the economic health of this country and healthcare it's not results that count but rather intentions. Sheesh! If you were really a progressive you'd understand these things, like the new healthcare initiative will probably cost less than $2.47 in new taxes (it's economically neutral and I have that on good authority)) because of all the savings we'll experience by gutting Medicare and letting government efficiency work its magic over the next ten years.

It won't cost $2 Trillion dollars over the next 10 years but only $2.47 ... honest injun ... cross my heart and hope to die if I'm wrong.

Just trust Obama and the Democrats, they only have our best interests at heart. That's the American thing to do. [Obamabot mode/off]


P.S. You really ought to post a disclaimer like, any resemblance of Obama statements and attitudes to past warnings by men smarter than him is merely coincidental. okay?

Barack Barry Hussein Soetoro Obama Beelzebub or more simply Malcolm X junior, (check out side by side pictures of Malcolm and Barry at similar ages and then get back with me).
