Obama: Listen to me — don't listen to me!
Posted by Jon Sanders at 3:59 PMThe media waited breathlessly for the Big Man to stop cowering behind his flunkies out characterizing little old ladies and elderly war veterans as Nazis, thugs, mobsters, even Klansmen1 and this is what he gave them?
Braced for a fight he never got, President Barack Obama went on the offensive in support of his health care plan Tuesday, urging a town hall audience not to listen to those who seek to "scare and mislead the American people."
"For all the scare tactics out there, what is truly scary is if we do nothing," Obama told a friendly crowd of about 1,800 in a high school auditorium and a nationwide audience watching on cable television.
Holy quick-change, Barackman! Don't listen to those who scare and mislead you. Now, let me really scare and mislead you.
1. Now what will they have left in their little arsenal of Bad Names to Call Folks to smear people who dare dissent from their policies? Hmm ... well, I don't know .. um ... Satan?
