And now for the most comical, absurd and idiotic comment from the Town Hall meeting for the 8th District of the Commonwealth of Virginia. Does anyone really wonder why Obama and the Democrats have lost the PR battle for Obamacare? Watch the following video. The American people do not want talking points of the plan … THEY WANT NOTHING TO DO WITH IT WHAT SO EVER!
Whose brilliant idea was it to bring lighting rod and flame thrower Howard Dean to a town hall meeting? Please do not use the excuse that Dean is a doctor. He is as divisive as it gets and if Congressman Morant could not foresee this, he is a fool.
Democrat Congressman Jim Morant says the following …
“There are 100’s of people in this gymnasium who can’t hear him (Howard Dean) because of a handful of people. Now, these folks are not from the 8th district, they really don’t belong here and I am going to ask them to leave”.
Actually Congressman Morant, this is democracy in action. Sorry if it does not fit your definition of the people need to hear your talking points and bow down to your point of view.
BTW Congressman Morant, you say people in the audiance are not from the 8th disctrict and need to leave … neither is Howard Dean, SO MAYBE HE NEEDS TO LEAEVE AS WELL!
A rare note from Dugga, the Scared Monkeys tech guy…
I’m not a big debater. I prefer to push the buttons and twiddle the knobs to shine the spotlight on those who are more well-spoken than me. But on occasion, I find issues so concerning, and ignorance so profound that I am forced to speak up. Today is one of those days.
My mom showed up wearing a Hillary Clinton button last week. As an elderly couple on a fixed income, I was forced to ask her if she had the first clue as to what it would mean for her and dad if a Democrat took office. Here’s what I told her.
In President Bush’s first term, he proposed, and congress passed, a series of temporary tax cuts. Most of these will expire in 2011. As you would expect from partisan politics, the Democrats have no plans to renew these cuts. John McCain has spoken out boldly in support of making these cuts permanent – as they should be.
Take a look at what’s going to happen the moment a Democrat takes office. Not their actions, but their inactions will allow the following to occur:
- Child Credit: This credit will shrink from $700 to $500 per child on January 1, 2011.
- The Income Tax: Rates will increase between 3 and 4.5 percentage points in each bracket on January 1, 2011.
- The 10 Percent Bracket: The bracket will be eliminated on January 1, 2011, raising the income tax burden of many workers by 5 percentage points. For low-income Americans, this is perhaps the most important of all the tax relief points that will expire!
- The 15 Percent Bracket for Joint Filers: On January 1, 2011, the upper limit of this bracket will shrink from 200 to 167 percent of the upper limit of the 15 percent bracket for single filers, creating a marriage penalty.
- Standard Deduction for Joint Filers: On January 1, 2011, this will shrink from 200 to 167 percent of the standard deduction for single filers, creating a marriage penalty.
- The Estate Tax: The top rate for this tax will increase to 60 percent on January 1, 2011, and the value of an estate exempt from taxation will shrink to $1 million, which is less than it is today.
Many Americans desperate for “change” because of differing opinions on how the Iraq war has been handled might take a second look at the Democrats when their pocketbook is involved. Why is nobody remembering that in its first 100 days, the new Democrat Senate passed the largest tax increase in American history — more than $700 billion in higher taxes!
Yes, gas is expensive and the economy sucks right now. And on the heels of April 15th, a lot of us are still sore from being reamed for a large chunk of our income. Next time someone starts saying we need “change”, ask them how much they’re willing to pay for it.

So DNC Chairman Howard Dean wants to play Monty Hall and Let’s Make a Deal with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama if there is no official nominee by the time the Democratic Party meets in Denver in August, 2008. Howard, will there be any screaming involved in the deal making?
Dean said Democrats would look to “get the candidates together to make some kind of an arrangement” before the party meets in Denver this August to officially select its nominee.
Deal? So does this mean that Hillary Clinton will be Barack Obama’s Vice President? Why not, why does it always have to be stated that Barack is supposed to be Hillary’s VP on the Dream Team Democratic ticket. What’s the matter with a Obama-Clinton ticket? Obama seems to be on a role and has the momentum. Inquiring minds want to know.
Yesterday, Vice President Cheney basically called Howard Dean a horse’s a$$. Wait a minute I can’t use dollar signs after the amount of money that Dean has raised as compared to counterpart, Republican National Committee Chairman Ken Mehlman. Howard Dean has made his Chairmanship all about himself instead of about the Democratic party. Dean wants to use the excuse that Republicans are trying to distract from the real issues. Howard, YOU ARE THE DISTRACTION! In a verbal tapestry of political drive by insults, VP Cheney let Dean have it.
Howard Dean is “over the top,” Vice President Dick Cheney says, calling the Democrats’ chairman “not the kind of individual you want to have representing your political party.”
“I’ve never been able to understand his appeal. Maybe his mother loved him, but I’ve never met anybody who does. He’s never won anything, as best I can tell,” Cheney said in an interview to be aired Monday on Fox News Channel’s “Hannity & Colmes.”
I guess we know for Dick Cheney stands on the Green Mountain state of VT. No maple syrup for you Mr. Vice President.
“So far, I think he’s probably helped us more than he has them,” Cheney said in the interview taped Friday. “That’s not the kind of individual you want to have representing your political party.
The vice president added: “I really think Howard Dean’s over the top. And more important … I think many of his fellow Democrats feel the same way.”
As much as the Democrats want to look the other way, Dean is a liability to the party. And why shouldn’t he be? Dean is really a Carl Rove mole.
