“The time for bickering is over…” but The War is on!
Obama addressed an overflow crowd in Minneapolis’ Target Center today, once again outlining his Health Care plan, explaining how we will pay for it, and getting the voters primed for action… Here is about ten minutes of it from CNN… the whole speech is up over at C-Span as well.
Meanwhile, in Washington DC, thousands of reactionaries were trucked in by Fox News, Glenn Beck’s organizers, and the right-wingnuts who have been convinced by these jerks to work against their own best interests:
Watching these guys interviewed on television was a revelation. Somehow we have all of the Birthers and all of the anti-Acorn righties and Dick Armey’s FreedomWorks, which has been subsidized by the Insurance companies in one place today and they seem more interested in equating Obama with Hitler and The Joker and carrying rather tasteless signs that say “Bury Obamacare with Kennedy.”
The Right will undoubtedly get more outrageous and the Insurance Company/Fox News factions will pour as much as they can in… especially since Obama makes sense and has 70% to 80% of the voting population behind him.
More to come.
