Confused U.S. Has Lots
To Say About Health Care

by Dana Milbank - July 2nd, 2009 - Washington Post

Introducing President Obama at yesterday's online town hall discussion, senior adviser Valerie Jarrett encouraged viewers to go to the White House's official site on, telling them: "As health-care reform moves through Congress, it's very important to President Obama that we take the time to engage the American people."

Well, Mr. President, consider them engaged -- but perhaps not exactly in the way Jarrett intended.

On the Facebook page, to which visitors to were referred with instructions to "join the conversation," the president and his aides were treated to the full range of American public opinion, in the form of thousands of raw and unfiltered posts. Some of those who weighed in were profound, some were less so, and a few should probably have their Internet privileges taken away:
... every few minutes, somebody named Brian Taylor, his Facebook photo a picture of a young boy, posted the same message: "OBAMA I DONT WANT THE WORLD TO END IN 2012 CAN U STOP IT??????????????"

One thing at a time, Brian.

More and more I am bemused about how Obama continues to maintain his support when lie after lie is exposed. On both health care and cap-and-tax Obama will raise taxes on the middle class to support his "community organizer" commitment to the poor. This is clear. No one can doubt that unless they simply suspend their willingness to think the issue through.

Obama has repeatedly said things that are totally the opposite of earlier things he has said and yet he never pays a price for this duplicity. There has been a long time explanation for his ability.

"The secret of success is sincerity. Once you can fake that you've got it made." - Jean Giraudoux

No one in history has learned to fake sincerity better than the Magic Marxist Messiah. Nobody.
