JUST ONE MINUTE, LADIES OF THE VIEW! EAT YOUR WORDS!

Here are the 4 empty cans of the view 

making noise again, and yes, I am including Elizabeth, who I feel is so used on this program.  They are erroneously speaking about Sarah Palin’s advice to Republicans and Conservatives in response to the unconstitutional and illegal Health Care Bill that was passed by the Democrats last week.  Sarah posted this map on her Facebook page:

Each of the cross-hairs represents a Democrat from a conservative district who voted in favor of health reform.  Sarah advised fellow Conservatives and Republicans not to ‘RETREAT’, but to ‘RELOAD’! Now, everyone knows that she was using the same description her father used to illustrate her resignation as the governor of Alaska, when he was asked by a member of the lame stream media why Sarah was leaving her office.  Her father said, “Sarah is not retreating –she is just reloading!”

The CROSS-HAIRS simply mean, we (the Republicans) have  those Democratic candidates in our sight and we will put forth our candidates to challenge everyone of them this coming November and take back the Congress!  Just listen to these EMPTY CANS RATTLE!!

NOW, OPEN YOUR MOUTHS WIDE, LADIES, BECAUSE HERE IT COMES!!

from Verum Serum:

This map appears on this page of the Democratic Leadership Committee website (dated 2004 during the Bush years). I guess we could argue over whether the DLC counts as “senior party officials” but they’re certainly as much a part of the party as Palin who, after all, currently holds no elected office.

Granted these are bulls-eyes instead of gun-sights, and the targets are states not individual congressmen. But we’re really splitting hairs at this point. This map and the language it uses (Behind enemy lines!) are, if anything, more militant than what Palin used in her Facebook posting.

But wait, there’s more!

LADIES OF THE VIEW, so what do you think about this map?

Each one of those red targets represents a “Targeted Republican” like this one:

There’s even a helpful legend that makes it clear that’s precisely what the little red targets represent:

You’ll never guess where this map was found. That’s right, it’s on the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) website. They launched the site and the map on February 23rd of this last year, making it just over a month year old. And yet the EMPTY CANS OF THE VIEW are denouncing Republicans for “pouring more and more gasoline on the flames.”

Right back at you, LADIES!!

RONALD REAGAN SPEAKS OUT AGAINST SOCIALISM AND LIBERALISM

Mr. Reagan’s speech from 1961 is more timely than ever in this Age of Obama.  Just listen and decide if that isn’t exactly what’s going on today – only 48 years later.

Amazing!

Proof that there is a real push for socialized healthcare by the Progressives of this day-

This MoveOn.org mailout was intercepted and posted on the Randy Right blog:

Dear MoveOn member,

How could they?

Senate Democrats have just announced a tentative health care deal that doesn’t appear to include a real public health insurance option.1

Instead of pulling out all the stops, they’ve bargained away the heart of health care reform—allowing conservative senators like Joe Lieberman and Ben Nelson to hold the process hostage and protect Big Insurance.

And sure enough, the insurance companies are reportedly thrilled with these terms. “We WIN,” one industry insider said during the negotiations. “No government insurance competitor.”2

If the health care bill doesn’t include a public option, it’ll be a huge giveaway to the insurance companies. But the deal isn’t final yet, so we need to send an immediate message to Congress and President Obama that any health care bill without a real public health insurance option is simply unacceptable.

So we’ve set a goal of making 6 calls to Senator Kay Hagan’s office from people in Pittsboro. Can you call and tell her that reform must include a public option, and urge her not to give in to conservatives and Big Insurance?

Here’s where to call:

Senator Kay Hagan
Phone: 202-224-6342

Details are still emerging about this new deal. According to The Washington Post, “the government plan preferred by liberals would be replaced with a program that would create several national insurance policies administered by private companies.”3

But half-measures simply won’t cut it: we desperately need a real public option in order to hold private insurance companies accountable. That’s far more important than appeasing Joe Lieberman and his friends in the insurance industry.

And this fight isn’t over yet, no matter how many times the media tries to declare the death of the public option. It’d only take one or two senators to unravel this deal, and progressive senators Russ Feingold and Bernie Sanders both indicated last night that their support can’t be taken for granted.4

So to win, we’ve got to send a powerful message to congressional Democrats and President Obama that we won’t accept this deal. Instead of giving up on the public option, they ought to show real leadership and ratchet up the pressure on Lieberman and any Democratic senators who are threatening to filibuster.

Here’s where to call:

Senator Kay Hagan
Phone: 202-224-6342

Thanks for all you do.

P.S. You probably know about right-wing hit man Glenn Beck’s outrageous attacks on President Obama and other progressive leaders. His latest target is organizer and strategist Bob Creamer, a friend of MoveOn and a strong ally in the progressive movement. Creamer has a great new book out, “Listen to Your Mother: Stand Up Straight: How Progressives Can Win.” And the best way to get back at Beck is to order a copy:

OBAMA’S PROMISE OF TRANSPARENCY IS NOTHING BUT HOT AIR

Obama said this during the 2008 presidential campaign

Right now, there’s a closed room in the Capitol. That room includes Harry Reid, Chris Dodd, Max Baucus, Kathleen Sebelius, Rahm Emanuel and a handful of other lawmakers. That’s it. That group will decide what the final Senate bill will look like.

How more despicable can they be??    I still cannot believe they have gotten this far with this farce!!
