Why is the POTUS so thin-skinned? Look at all that was done to Bush, Clinton, and Hillary. They all took it like men - even Hillary! lol. CNN even did a fact check on the recent SNL skit about Obama's campaign retoric. I just don't get it...
What happened to free speech?? I don't believe everything on FOX, or on CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, or MSNBC - nor do I agree 100% with all the views expressed on ANY of them, but I sure respect their right to free speech.
I watch a little of them all to get a well rounded view. I used to watch Olbermann until he was so nasty to Hillary in the primary. I still watch Maddow, however.
No one is forcing viewers to watch FOX or any other network...yet! lol
Hi, Tex. Like I said, I like to watch a little of all the network news and views. I don't think Rachel is vile. I think she's very intelligent and funny! She supports BO, but when he messes up, she often calls him on it. I'm center-right...a moderate conservative or a conservative moderate.
Why? It guarantees the People freedom and liberty from oppression, specifically the type of oppression this administration and its liberal progressive cronies want to impose.
It guarantees power flows from the people to the government not the government to the people. This is type of oppression these people are attempting by calling the Constitution a living Document that is to be changed per how they perceive. They believe they are smarter than you and know what is best for you, so they will decide.
It's so revered because it can't be changed on a whim, but can be amended when the need arises and there is enough consensus across the nation and within the government. With the exception of a very nasty five year period when our country worked out that states did not have a right to allow slavery, it's kept our country from falling into chaos for well over 200 years.
I do love my great Constitution document. I can kiss it any time. But I would make amendment: Any communist in government should be shipped to Cuba maybe North Korea. An Italian government use to sent communists to Soviet Union and got cured.
So wait. Someone says the right wing nuts should start their own country because they're saying a bunch of stuff he doesn't agree with and then posts a bunch of lies about the COTUS and I should moderate MYSELF? Hmmm
Which portion is a crisis and to how many? Are there problems? Yes. Is there a structure and legislation already in place to address those problems? Yes Is there also legislation in place crating those problems the answer again is yes.
Massive retructuring of the system needed? No. Single payer Government controlled healthcare is not a top priority, nor is it wanted
Says you... We need this debate. I'm not saying universal health care will fix the issue, maybe we just need some regulation. I didn't ask what will fix it, I only asked if you agreed there was a problem - which you do.
Goverment run because The Insurance Industry at the time could not take it on, suposidly had not enough money in their system, when it was proposed back then???? and Congressmen and Senators were and still are for sale for Lobbyists to shop at will!
So, Are we really broke? You have no acess to real figures, it could be lies? Is this a money grab by the Goverment, a move away from covering American Citizens, a synister move to raid the coffers. Leave the president of Citizen privelages given. The real figures and real information is hidden deliberately from us?
The Health Care Industry and the Insurance Indstry need the regulations, to stop the money climb, they set the costs out of sight. The Goverment did not dictate the costs, those Industries did.
Who determins the cost of a surgery? The hospitals send the Bill, not the Goverment??????
Yes, we need this debate and we need regulation and Hospital and Insurance reform, not a lowering of Medical standards for treatments under a lie of cost control!
I have the Insurance, I have the job that pays, if you want to re-distribute anything, then re-distribute my work ethic, leave my personal money and life alone. You did not make my life, I did!
Go make your own, you are free to! I am tired of this social bull-shit! We are free to work and make a life, go do it for yourself first, then bitch!
and please forgive my rudeness here,
I just am really weary of this mess. Obama and his Welfare give away needs to go, and go now.
We can and should provide for the poor, and we are wrong not to, but leave other things alone. Lets make that work first.
Help the people who need it. We have the capability to do that, without all of this other.
I would and will contribute to that effort, it is right to, and others should also. But not like what is proposed now.
This is lies and manipulation of people without real information needed to defend their right to privelages given, that they have earned. It is pure un-mitigated crap!
The procedure, by law, is that once a person is nominated he is then vetted by the Speaker of the House (Pelosi), the presidnet of the Senate (Cheney) and the Senate majority leader (Reid). The Supreme Court has nothing to do wtih that process, unless it is brought to their attention through a lawsuit. They only swear him in.
Whats wrong THE ROCK OBAMA? I never thought this could be happening in a democratic country like the US....curtailing press freedom, theres no way you can win against the media, NO WAY...it is not even winning or losing against the media, it is just doing what is right in a civilized world.
Obama and other stupid media democrats need to focus on the war with Afghanistan rather than fight Fox News. I think that since Fox News is displaying these completely accurate and true facts about Obama's lies and incoming failures (i.e. ObamaCare), Obama and his dumb democrat partners are picking a fight with Fox News for that reason. But when President George W. Bush was in office, the media, MSNBC, MSN, NBC, ABC, and tons of other networks were ripping him apart for aboslutely no reason and President Bush and his Republican partners professionally looked over the stupid comedies of these junky liberals and focused on the importance of the job of President of the United States. Obama and his administration need to focus on the War with Afghanistan, which has significant importance in the life of our country, rather than pick a stupid fight with a media channel. When Republicans were attacked (many times I might add), they professionally overlooked these stupid interfaces and focused on the important issues. Learn from them obama
