Olbermann on town hall scum heckling disabled woman

This is kind of where I hit the wall with this whole healthcare reform/town hall teabagger insanity:  a few days ago, when I watched a video that showed teabagger assholes at a town hall meeting, shouting down a disabled woman in a wheelchair.  Like Olbermann says, “Have they no decency?”

The answer is clear:

HOW the HELL does the GOP still have this kind of power??  No mandate, no majority, no house, no senate, no white house, and yet they can still completely fuck up everything the Democrats try to do?  It’s insane.

Like CTZen said in the comments, it’s time to stop kissing ass and start kicking it, Mr. President.

    Animals behave better than that.

    No kidding. Can you believe that fat fuck yelling at her “Ask the question!!!”, what a prick.

    “… yet they can still completely fuck up everything the Democrats try to do”

    There’s the key right there everything the Democrats try to do the real key is that the Dems aren’t trying to do the good things that people want. The power base of the Democratic party couldn’t give a polished shit about the single payer healthcare system or 45 million uninsured. They don’t care a lick more than the Republicans about that, or torture or Gitmo or war crimes. The Dems are no better and no worse, at the end of the day the concentration of power in American politics remains constant and the can be localized with three famous words: follow the money.

    Imagining otherwise is folly. And Obama appears more than willing to walk away from all of the important changes that he allowed progressives to believe in heading toward November. There’ll be no single payer option, let alone a single payer reformation of the system. Any initiatives that see investigation or prosecution of the CIA goons and the crooked fucks that ran them out of the Bush white house will be led by forces other than the Obama executive. The difference here is that the Repubs are true believers. Come hell or high water they will do what ever it takes to have their way. They’ll fight long and hard and they don’t give a shit about hurting people. The Dems don’t believe in anything and they won’t go to the mattresses to fight either. The left, the progressive caucuses have been used, ridden hard and put away wet.

    The Repiglicans have no qualms about screwing things into the ground out of spite and vitriol, they know that there’s no spine in the Democratic back. For all of the seats in both houses, there’s no consensus, no single agenda and no common cause. Pelosi is a useless co-opted piece of crap and Harry Reid is a right wing Republicna hack in all but name. When the Dems installed Rahm as chief of staff, the writing was on the wall. This white house has no independent will that doesn’t generate down the street in the old beltway haunts. One term, mark my words.

    If he even gets to serve the entire term, and that thought would be the culmination of all what’s wrong.

    Regarding Obama’s speech for education, wouldn’t it be great if he said “Kids, don’t grow up to be as stupid as your parents.”

    There is a lot of disinformation out there, and O did say he wanted HC reform if he only got one mandate to do it with. Reality has hit him now, he hired the wrong people to advise him. The Dems who vote against his end run HC package will be revealed, the disrespect to their President is mind-boggling. Those Dems are no better than the Repugs.

    I must say psa is essentially right on. The Dems do not possess a spine and day by day it is getting more apparent.

  6. 6 JJ Sunday, September 6, 2009 at 9:29 pm

    psa – Well, they’re off to a rough start, that’s for sure.

    I think it could be as CTZen said in another thread, the problem is that half the Dems are just as owned by corporate interests as the GOP, so any ‘change’ is bound to be superficial and incremental. Also, in spite of the right wing propaganda, Obama isn’t a lefty at all really, he’s a moderate centrist at best. By Canadian standards, he’d probably fit right in with the Harper Conservatives, at least the red tories.

    That’s why I’m not that surprised that now that the shit is really hitting the fan, he seems to be caving. As soon as he started with the “common ground” stuff with the fetus fetishists… it may be an honourable goal, looks good on paper, but isn’t workable in reality. You can’t compromise with people who want everything, and won’t budge from that position. The American right doesn’t flinch — they don’t go along to get along like the Democrats always seem to do. That’s how they always get their way, they’re garden variety schoolyard bullies and the Dems are the nerds they shake down for their lunch money.

    If they can’t get healthcare passed, I suspect the next 4 years will be one long lame-duck term. But, it’s only been 8 months, and kind of a weird 8 months at that, so we’ll see.

    Toe –

    If he even gets to serve the entire term

    😯 Because of…?

    I’m not so shocked at Obama’s weakness, or to be gentler, “malleability”, as I am at the Dems that he seems to have no control over. One thing about the Rethugs is that they always stick together and vote along party lines, as a bloc, with the exception of maybe one or two moderates. This is what makes them strong. The Dems are fractured — much like the Canadian left. The Democratic party is like a combination of the Liberals and the NDP all in one party.

    For awhile things weren’t going too badly, and the GOP was becoming silly and irrelevant, which is what they really are — then everything went sideways with the healthcare debate. Obama should have kicked ass over that thing and got it passed before Kennedy died (which I think he was hoping to do), but allowed his own party to saboutage it. And of course the GOP vultures and their army of imbeciles just piled on.

    Best thing Obama could do is go on TV this week & say “We’re fucking doing this healthcare thing, if you don’t like it that’s too goddamn bad. The train’s leaving the station, get on board or get stuffed.”

    Ryan – Can’t say I disagree.

  9. 9 Dr. Prole Monday, September 7, 2009 at 6:41 am

    Some of the Dems do have spine – the House progressives. They are saying If there’s no robust public option, we will Kill Bill.

  10. 10 JJ Monday, September 7, 2009 at 8:46 am

    Dr.Prole – I heard rumblings about that last week; it’s an honourable idea, and I hope they stick to their principles. This “Go along to get along” bullshit has to end.

    The GOP is vicious and stupid (and their brainless base is even worse). If they don’t want to sit down and help craft a good healthcare reform bill, if all they have to offer is screaming about “death panels”, they should just be ignored, period.

    BTW, there’s a huge thread at HuffPo with Canadians talking about universal healthcare. As an American who’s experienced both systems, you might want to add your .02. I did. (Some wingnut blog linked to me yesterday, so they’ll undoubtedly show up and expectorate all over the thread too.)

    “The left, the progressive caucuses have been used, ridden hard and put away wet.”

    Prole, we’re in agreement there. It was the left that energized and brought the internet fund raising power to the Obama campaign I really hope the progressive caucuses stick to their guns. It isn’t just the Repiglickins that can drive and/or derail an agenda.

  12. 12 Dr. Prole Monday, September 7, 2009 at 9:34 am

    PSA, I think they will stick to their guns. Progressives raised over $400,000 in a matter of days for reps who strongly and in no uncertain terms support a public option as part of reform. Way more than the insurance co’s contribute to them. They’ll follow the money and hopefully their moral compass. Better no reform for the time being than the BS insurance industry taxpayer funded windfall that assholes like Baucus are proposing.

    I’m starting to wonder… yes, obviously the “netroots” activity was a huge part of Obama’s successful campaign, but not all of it, and maybe some of those people are owed.

    Also, I hate to blame the media, but Christ. Fox has been ridiculous. The other networks can be fairly partisan at times, but nothing like Fox. I guess this stuff goes back & forth, though.

    We will eventually have to kill marxist scum and use them
    as fertilizer. Thats the best option.

    The USA has previously been destroyed by excessive govt
    and massive spending. The USA is now in debt to the tune of
    over 50 trillion dollars. Marxists vermin truly have no
    brains and no value systems. Dont forget this movement is led by
    greedy evil jews like Soros, the Intelligentsia and the kulak classes in all the gerrymandered ghetto voting districts. So abort marxists late term its the fair thing to do for the good ole USA

    Please volunteer for mother earth and kill yourselves you will ensure a healthy robuts plant life! Thanks!
