"Some see this as a replay of 1993-94.
Young president comes in, proposes healthcare. It crashes and burns and then the Republicans
use that to win back the House in the subsequent election." -- Obama on 60 Minutes,
Barack, how can you not see what's in front of you?
You are stuck with the same backstabbers that got Clinton.
These same backstabbers refused to stand up to Bush, but they'll
block you all day.
Excerpt: I have very mixed feelings about the protests
of conservatives such as David Frum or Andrew Sullivan that the
conservative movement has been supposedly "hijacked"
by extremists and crazies. On the one hand, this is true.
But when was it different? Rush Limbaugh
didn't just magically appear in the last twelve months. He -- along with
people like James Dobson, Pat Robertson, Bill
Kristol and Jesse Helms -- have been leaders of that party for decades.
Republicans spent the 1990s wallowing in Ken
Starr's sex report, "Angry White Male" militias, black U.N. helicopters,
Vince Foster's murder, Clinton's Mena drug runway,
Monica's semen-stained dress, Hillary's lesbianism, "wag the dog"
theories, and all sorts of efforts to personally
humiliate Clinton and destroy the legitimacy of his presidency using the
paranoid, reality-detached, and scurrilous attacks.
And the crazed conspiracy-mongers in that movement became even more
prominent during the Bush years. Frum himself
-- now parading around as the Serious Adult conservative -- wrote, along
uber-extremist Richard Perle, one of the most
deranged and reality-detached books of the last two decades, and before
celebrated George W. Bush, his former boss, as
'The Right Man.'
Excerpt: A bnew study shows that 63 percent of physicians
support a health reform proposal that includes both a public option
and traditional private insurance. If the additional
10 percent of doctors who support an entirely public health system are
included, then approximately three out of
four physicians nationwide support inclusion of a public option. Only
support a private-only reform that would provide
subsidies for low-income individuals to purchase private insurance.
"There should be no confusion about where doctors
stand in the debate over expanding health insurance coverage: they want
said Risa Lavizzo-Mourey. 'This survey reveals
important information about the perspective of physicians on issues central
the health reform debate. Policy makers should
listen to their doctors.'"
Excerpt: Teabagger-birther-handjobs claim that ABC News
had reported crowd size as 1 million to 1.5 million people.
Problem is, ABC never said that:
At no time did ABC News, or its affiliates, report
a number anywhere near as large.
ABCNews.com reported an approximate figure of
60,000 to 70,000 protesters, attributed to the D.C., fire department.
In its reports, ABC News Radio described the
crowd as "tens of thousands."

"9/11 has been the pretext for the systematic
dismantling of our Constitution and Bill of Rights. Your administration is reading from
the same playbook that the Bush administration foisted on America through documented secrecy
and deception. Mr. President, I implore you based on the evidence you now possess, to use your
Executive Power. Prove to us all Sir, that you do, in fact, care. Create a truly comprehensive and open
Congressional investigation of 9/11 and its aftermath." -- Charlie Sheen, in a letter

You claim that Obama's opponents call him the

Excerpt: Wilson is the prototypical Neo-Confederate, Glenn
Beck, racist, psychotic Republican. He supports waving the
Confederate flag. He makes Jefferson Davis, the
President of the Confederacy, look like a moderate, and is known for
making slanderous statements about the “patriotism”
of others and upholding the racist legacy of Strom Thurmond, his mentor.
So Wilson was the perfect guy to distract the
media by committing the unprecedented act of disrupting a Presidential
by calling the President of the United States
a liar. In the Bush Administration, if a Democrat had done that he
been expelled from Congress. But Wilson
just issued a non-apology apology and then went on television the next
repeat the lie about the healthcare reform bill,
and the media let him get away with prevaricating about his accusation...
That was no spontaneous outburst. Joe Wilson was
likely told what to do and when to do it. This was part of a
summer of planned set-ups by corporate and GOP
front PR firms. Unfortunately, after 30 years of the GOP leading
the corporate media around by a leash, the Obama
White House has joined a long list of clueless Democratic leaders.
Of course it was planned.
The whore media had the speech in advance so Wilson
had a copy.
He knew exactly when to scream.
Bart, the man behind Beck's "investigation" is
He claims on bighollywood.com that he's not a
"right-wing nut job". He's worse--he's an angry Hillary supporter.
Like most Hillary supporters he hates that Obama
took the White House and like most Hillary supporters
he'll do anything he can to destroy the Obama
administration, even if it means ruining the career of a man
he once considered a friend and painting the
NEA with a broad brush of propaganda.
I'm seeing assumptions and claims - is there any
And who are you to speak for "most Hillary supporters?"
Why didn't he state on Beck's show that he donated
$500 to Hillary's campaign?
For someone who claims to want transparency and
separation of artists and government,
does he not see the hypocrisy in financially
supporting Obama's rival and then coming out
and painting Yosi Sergant as Joseph Goebbels?
Another important question to ask would be, did
Yosi become a "former"
employee of his before, or after Yosi joined
I don't know and I don't have time to investigate,
but $500 buys you nothing in politics and
can't we agree that Rupert Murdoch is
behind Beck's "investigation," whatever that means?
All in all, he is in a severe conflict of interest,
one that I think is important for people to examine.
I think the best thing for me to do is get these
questions on the internet and let people know
where Patrick's coming from, and what his political

Excerpt: While it is possible to do a radio program that
is truly entertaining, honest, intelligent, funny, and informative,
doing that requires some amount of ethics and
talent and diligent application, and that does not describe the low-brow,
rightwing, hate fueled, dishonest, and power
hungry slobs who bleed pure poison all across our public spectrum.
Employing the most ugly and persistently untruthful
political slurs about crucial public policy questions along with
ugly and false personal character assassination
in furtherance of a bigoted and feudal political agenda that could
never exist on the merits absent their relentless
tsunami of calculated lying, would not in any rational environment
be considered even remotely as "entertainment".
As but one illustration, on this idiotic and malicious
low-brow, rightwing radio the President of the United States is
a Marxist who HATES! this country along with
his wife. What I ask any decent citizen can be the purpose of repeating
such a statement multiple times a day on an individual's
radio program? And what can be the purpose of sponsors who
purchase advertising on such a "show".
And what can be the purpose of an station licensee who right now features
Malzberg in addition to Savage, Dobbs, and Beck
all on one station; WOR-AM in New York.

Excerpt: We've been witnessing a torrent of twisted logic,
lately, in the jousting over Obama's health care plans.
The Obama mantra seems to be that in order to
get more health care we have to cut it.
This is scaring the pants off old people on Medicare
and those in other government programs like Social Security,
Medicaid for the poor, Veterans' programs and
Champus, also called Tricare, providing health care to military families.
If Obama really wanted to cut health costs in
order to afford universal health insurance, he would be
screaming for the single-payer option that has
been forced off the table by the clout of the insurance industry.
When he was a candidate for president, seeking
your vote, Obama was all for the single-payer plan.
When elected, you saw a federal twist in action
when he was joining in, rather than fighting off, the cabal.
Now he is a well indoctrinated member of the
Why, why, why did Obama waste this entire summer?
He allowed them to define his position and now
he's in serious trouble.
This is a race and he gave the racist bastards a 60-day head start.
After wasting the summer, he gave a decent speech that went nowhere.
Gore refused to listen to my suggestions and Kerry refused to listen
to my suggestions.
Obama, so far, has refused to listen to my suggestions.
Bart - So Glenn Beck's hate rally produced about
60000 fuckheads to march on Washington.
Sounds like a lot? Well, on Saturday, Sept. 5,
Alabama and Va Tech sold out Atlantaa's Georgia Dome
to the tune of 71, 500 fans. So this outpouring
of Beck's special brand of douchebaggery produced
less interest on a national scale than a college
football game played in Georgia..

Excerpt: The day before he gave his latest brilliant speech,
Barack Obama repeated a well-worn mantra to a television interviewer:
"My job is not to be distracted by the 24-hour
news cycle." The time has come for him to expand that job description.
He has a duty to push back against the 24-hour
news cycle when it threatens to derail his agenda, the nation’s business,
This was a silly summer, as wasteful in its way
as the summer of 2001, when Washington dithered over the now-forgotten
Gary Condit scandal while Al Qaeda plotted.
The president deserves his share of the blame.
Surely he means to say Obama deserves the blame
for bungling health care reform, not 9-11.
(You'd think a professional writer for the Whore
Times could make his points more clearly.)
So now what?
The teabagging handjobs control the debate and
Obama's speech changed nothing.
Does Obama get that if he loses this fight (If it's not already
it's very unlikely that he'll win another major battle in his term?
For Obama and Democrats, health care reform is the Super Bowl.

Excerpt: As we've said on BuzzFlash many a time, much
of the right wing juggernaut of four decades was driven by
a backlash to the Civil Rights movement (and
the ensuing women's rights and gay rights movements).
There is no greater and unjust privilege in the
world than claiming power and authority merely because one is
born a certain skin color. For whites who
have seen their incomes decline and jobs lost because of global
corporations shifting jobs to below-poverty wage
nations, the Siren song of right wing hate radio -- financed by
the very corporations fleecing the economically
stretched white person of limited education and means -- is alluring.
If the corporations can scapegoat blacks and immigrants
as the cause of the plight of whites on the economic brink,
then they are off the hook, as they are.
Their tactic of inciting racism to a boiling point through their ubiquitous
outlets and talk shows and obsessive news coverage
of the diverting spectacle they keep creating has been successful.
