Sen. Stupak, a democrat in name only, trying to use the health care vote to shut down any avenue for a woman’s right to control her own body is the lower of the low. (Michael Moore’s LOTD ‘He doesn’t have a brain or a uterus). It was the republican trump card all along, vilely trying to make this a vote about abortion to further confuse and divide on this issue, shows how desperate they are.
Yesterday some of those ‘real Americans’ as Sarah Palin likes to repeatedly say, hurled racial epithets at civil-rights lion Rep. John Lewis, who was in Selma in the 50s, and on the mall in with Dr. King in 1963. They also didn’t hold back with antigay slurs against Barney Frank.
President Obama gave another magnifiscent speech of his dream for all Americans to have a way for affordable health care. He let everybody have their say. He let all of the poisons against him hatch out, with the lies, vitriol and political venom from his opponents and he invoked Lincoln “I am not bound to win, but I am bound to be true.” urging fellow dems to do the right thing.
This fight for health care could only be stopped by more deceit from the other side who offers no plan except to keep the insurance, pharmacuetical and corporate med mafia intact.
The President has already won this with honesty and real leadership. “This bill is right down the middle.” Even facing unprecedented hate, Mr. Obama doesn’t shrink from trying to be everybody’s president. The political climate is so poisoned there are those who don’t even appreciate that once in a lifetime chance.
