    The health scam the mobsters are running on us is in such dire risk of being derailed by angry grandmothers scaring the pants of the Democrat Congressmen that the Democrat leadership has been forced to resort to the extremity of labeling their opposition as Organized Kooks funded by anti-American fat-cat capitalist anti-reform haters".

    I would think an organized protest would be less random and more articulate than what I'm seeing on TV. Looks to me like a bunch of average irate citizens unaccustomed to public speaking demanding their useless turd Democrat and Republican Congressthings stop jerking them around and start doing what their public wants them to do.

    The real problem is that the Democrats in Washington, and the Democrat red Kool-Aid drinkers on the Internet, have come to believe their own lies so much that they've been blindsided by the fact that there's still honest people in America who don't like Kool-Aid.

    Here is the statement directly from the White House:

    "There is a lot of disinformation about health insurance reform out there, spanning from control of personal finances to end of life care. These rumors often travel just below the surface via chain emails or through casual conversation. Since we can’t keep track of all of them here at the White House, we’re asking for your help. If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to flag@whitehouse.gov."

    CORRECTION: It is now Tim Kaine.
    You would be wrong; the head of the Democrat Party is indeed the Democrat President which is Obama. Kaine is merely head of the Democrat National Committee.

    Carry on.

    Of course it's partisan. They aren't going to spend the time and money to try and rebuttal people that agree with them. That would just be a waste of time and resources.

    That this collection of political campaigns against WhiteHouse policies are anything other then to collect talking points to address towards the American people is simply hyperbole.

    What research for the Democratic Party is being performed? I see research for White House policies being performed by those policies being Democrat or Republican is not a factor.

    I do? Please show me where I accept this. Also, what does this have to do with the topic?

    Re: Cornyn accuses White House of compiling 'enemies list'

    To everybody:

    In order to debate, it is helpful to have the facts. The article from the Dallas morning news in the OP is about John Cornyn saying that an enemies list is being compiled, but the actual article on the White House blog is what you should be looking at.

    Here is the original article at the White House blog.

    I suggest that everybody, on BOTH sides of the issue, read it, and watch the 2 videos that are embedded there. After that, feel free to post what you believe it to be, and use any part of the link to back up what you are saying.

    Alex, I highlighted the relevant comments here; please tell me why ANYONE in Government needs to "keep track of all of them?"

    Here is the pertinent point; this effort smacks of desperation and paranoia and anyone with a brain should be concerned when it is their Government exhibiting this sickness.

    I am concerned when our government oversteps its authority, but this is not it.

    (Well, actually it was Flavor-aid, but I'm only posting that because some wag will)

    Don't worry, with four copies of the same e-mail submitted by 50,000,000 million devoted Manic Messiah-bots, no one will do ANYTHING with the header information identifying all those evil anti-Messianic Internet users daring to oppose the Messiah's message of hope and change for all 57 states. No, they won't do anything with that list. Really, if you can't trust a Democrat, your life isn't worth living.

    Especially if you're 75 and looking at the government deciding to ration "end of life" care. Nothing to worry about, nosirreebobcattails.
