Anyone Watching Larry King Live?
The guest are talking about President Obama and Sarah Palin. The just hit on the fact that Newt Gingrich said President Obama "is the most radical president in the history of the United States". In response to that statement the Republican strategist tried to claim that "President Obama lead us into a war". This Republcan strategist is just completely crazy. After saying that she claimed that the Democratic Party "just went through a civil war on healthcare". First, we and everybody on the show knew that Obama did not lead us into a war. The Republican strategist was forced to somewhat take back her statement. After the other guests cried foul she ajusted an claimed Obama was continuing the war. Second, I know the Democratic Party had differences in dealing with the Healthcare bill, but it is a major stretch to claim the Democratic Party went through a civil war over the issue.

In terms of Obama being a radical, he is not a radical. I do not with all of Obama's ideas, but this is a president who has seemed to ask the Republican Party for permission to do everything he has thought about doing. There have been a number of presidents that have been far more radical then President Obama.

1. GOP tactics never change.



Repeat a lie often enough and loud enough and eventually it becomes accepted as the truth.

It has worked well for them in the past.

4. The right wing bitch
denied that the public option polled at a popularity rate of around 70%. Of course if she watched only Faux Noise she would never have heard this. Pathetic. Obviously the reason the HCR bill is not popular is because it did not go far enough.

Again, the American people did not vote for Democrats in 2006 and 2008 imagining they were electing conservatives. But the M$M will never mention this. It is as if these elections did not take place.

5. The Polling
There has been at least one poll that reported that most of the people angry at the HCR bill were upset that the bill did not go farther.
