Public Discourse: The candidate who told his supporters "to argue with them and get in their face" now finds the shoe on the other foot. So they're taking names and encouraging you to turn in your neighbors.
Considering that upward of 80% of those hooligans like their doctors, like their insurance and like their care, anger over your government-run health care was not that hard to assemble.
It was not that long ago that Barack Obama told a crowd of 1,500 supporters in Elko, Nev., to challenge those who disagree with them and him: "I want you to go out and talk to your friends and talk to your neighbors. I want you to talk to them whether they are independents or Republicans. I want you to argue with them."
President Obama spoke then as the community organizer he was a true disciple of Saul Alinsky who worked with and for Acorn in the days when they were storming banks and government meetings to force them to ditch creditworthiness as a criteria and forcing them to issue loans to those who couldn't afford them.
The president is familiar with the Alinsky way, the Chicago way, of organizing a group to act. Obama spent years prodding underprivileged Chicagoans to channel their political anger by orchestrating activist mob scenes designed to coerce businesses and public officials. A 2007 profile in the left-leaning New Republic was titled "The Agitator." He's still at it.

“was not that hard to assemble”
No assemble necessary !!
So, when the DhimmiRats do it, it’s an acceptable variation of political discourse. But, when the conservatives do it, it’s contrived mob antics?
0bama needs a good dose of his own medicine. Keep the heat on them! Get in their faces. Demand accountability. Demand answers to your questions. And, don’t take their condescending garbage. Let them know where you stand and where you expect them to stand with you.
It’s time to take back the country.
Democrats - the pussy party.
Go vote them down and the Resistance up.
Not for those with a weak stomach for libs.
That's about as succinct summary as I have seen of late. The Tea Parties were the opening salvo in our fight back. In the Townhall Meetings, we the American people stepped it up and let these political thugs, cowards and bullies know that we don't like their disgraceful treatment towards the OWNERS of this government.
Yesterday, the DNC upped the stakes by attacking ordinary Americans expressing their frustration and outrage at these Townhall Meetings as Republibots expressing manufactured pretend anger at these Townhall Meetings.
Until Congress is officially back in session after the August recess, we need to keep the pressure on at the Townhall Meetings and make sure these people know that this isn't an Acorn organized angry mob, this is ordinary Americans expressing their anger at a Congress that is irresponsible, spending money we don't have - mortgaging our children's and grandchildren's futures in the process - and bankrupting this country with payoffs to Obama's most ardent supporters; we are anything but a Republican organized angry mob!! Just ask the non-Republicans who show up at these meetings.
Since the Democrats in Congress don't really care that we don't want DeathCare, they will pass it, anyway. IMO, this will lead to open civil disobediance which will likely be quickly followed by open warfare. Civil War II won't end until Zero, his handlers and enablers, Pelousy, Reed, the "czars", the Congress and the newly confirmed associate justice to the SCOTUS are all behind bars awaiting their show trial before starting their minimum 10 year sentence in prison for treason, malfeasance, violating their oath of office, high crimes and misdemeanors, conspiracy to subvert the Constitution and anything else we can think of. This is the only way that I can see for this madness to end.
This is why we must take the House and the Senate back in 2010
I don’t think we give a second thought about what the Rats think. They certainly don’t worry about what we think.
We have work to do. We need to take back America.
Those are great.
That thread is a perfect example of why they win. They organize, they are relentless. We aren’t. Notice how many thumbs up and thumbs downs? They called on their bloggers to organize. They are out in force, just like during the campaign. Until we are better than them or as good and as devoted, we deserve to lose. Sorry, but I’m aggravated.
Actually, it's probably because we digg the articles, but don't leave too many comments, if any. They come in later when the find it.
