    Or all the many press conferences Bush held.. no wait he did not hold that many and when he did he got soft ball questions most of the time..

    This is politics and it is all about image so yes Obama does this, just as Bush did, just as McCain did and just as Vitter did only a week ago. It is common practice..Is it "cool".. hell no, it spits in the face of the whole democratic process if you ask me.. just as sending jackboots to threaten and beat up people, and sending in agitators to scream insults at the speaker so no one can ask questions, or to spread lies and disinformation about things .. all undemocratic and pathetic.

    But where were you and your fellow "NO" party members when Bush did this.. where was your criticism? If I remember right the who gay prostitute reporter thing was at the time and later on dismissed as "so what" despite the highly questionable security issues involved on top of the whole planted questions crap. Or where were you when Bush stacked his town halls? Or where were you when this happened during the election

    Jonathan Martin's Blog - Politico.com

    The son of a Fox News anchor asking a rather loaded question to McCain? How is that different than this? And where were you and your "NO" party members when this happened?
    Oh yes, once more itís all about Bush, it will always be about Bush and cannot possibly be anything OTHER than Bush.

    obama supporters are gonna question the motives of his critics for bringing this up, this sweet little girl

    they so densely miss the point

    this isn't about obama's supporters or critics or even the cute little girl

    it's about NORMAL americans which isn't any of us, with all our POLITICAL motivations

    it's the fact that the ENTIRE EVENT looked like michael jackson's funeral...

    i'll be there
    i'll be there
    wherever there's health care
    i'll be there

    whee hee hee

    i'll be there
    i'll be there
    just call obama
    i'll be there

    you and i must make a pact
    we must bring our country back
    where there is suff'ring
    i'll be there

    i'll be there to protect you
    if your mom campaigned i will respect you
    you're the next question
    i'll be there

    (sway gently, y'all)

    i'll be there
    i'll be there
    change you believe in
    i'll be there

    LOL!

    Liberals are just bad at getting a consensus. If Obama would have started this all off with - "first thing we're going to do is stop paying for the health care of illegal immigrants." That would have gone over excellently with a whole lot of conservatives. They would have immediately started liking this health plan.

    How can you let granny go when you can't let illegals go? It's outrageous! It's "evil!"

    Then he could have said, "We're going to get all these people who can well afford health insurance but don't contribute to start contributing. There's no reason they should not contribute to the cost of our health care."

    And then said something about the necessity of a free market plan. Republicans wouldn't have immediately been so against all this.

    But nope, he has divided the country (as if we aren't divided enough!) seemingly on purpose. Obviously his plan would not be acceptable to conservatives and conservatives are a majority of our citizens, so says Mr. Gallop.

    Same with the global warming situation. Who decided it would be a good idea to have somebody that the conservatives hate introduce this concern? That all got nowhere fast!

    Good argument, I have to say.

    To some this factual commentary up in a simple word or two, he could have actually chosen a BI-PARTISAN method instead of the PARTISAN cram it down their throats method.

    wow!

    brilliantly put

    this president is the worst salesperson i've ever seen

    gene green, dem, houston, very astutely noted---had pelosi/obama pushed health care first and cap and trade second...

    the heller amendment (congressman dean heller, nevada) would have implemented e-verify to ensure that only citizens receive whatever expanded health care is being contemplated

    heller was killed in rangel's ways and means along party lines

    Newsmax.com - Obama Health Plan to Cover 12 Million Illegals

    perception is everything, and many americans BELIEVE that gramma, if not outright offed, is gonna get denied her new hip, while pedro and paloma get their teeth checked

    the point, as you superbly point out---really stupid politics

    obama is CHICAGO encapsuled

    strongarm tactics

    and one party rule

    he just doesn't get it

    america, that is, he doesn't dig america

    oh well

    thanks!

    What I am interested is to hear what Sam_W, Formerroadie, Windovervocalcords, and Goldendog have to say about this. I think that'd be VERY interesting to read and very, very telling about how intellectually honest they are about their own side.




    we all are interested. But I don't think they arrived yet., have they?

    I think most already know that controlling the theme, tone, and questioning at a politically motivated meeting is nothing new and has happened many times before at all levels etc.

    What differs is how it is handled, and when things are so hot against the candidate or proposed changes etc that they can not be handled in the manner they were wanted to be handled.

    Town hall meetings, Tea Parties, and countless others across the nation have been set up for a purpose, and normally or should I say often for the purpose of establishing or estimating public opinion, and supporting the agenda of one given person or party.

    There are also those that by every bit of evidence available seem to be more of a public out cry (like what we saw at many of the recent rallies) where members of the general public with no political ties show their true emotion while making their statements and point etc. If you looked closely many if not most of the regular speakers were at least genuine.

    I remember seeing how bad these "set up" meetings can become when Democrat Jon Corzine the then recently elected governor of NJ was holding meetings to discuss the newly proposed 800% increases in the many state toll roads (already some of the highest rates in the nation) which advertised a public questioning session to be included.

    It became obvious that the plan was to plant the questions as it was all by invite only, and the state had the state police acting like SS in removing and even arresting anyone who did not cooperate with the plan. They removed people with signs outside the locations, arrested people who would not give up their signs or leave the premises, and even arrested member(s) of the opposing political party who were seeking entry and to exercise their right to protest as well.

    So even if the current administration did not personally pick this questioner it is obvious that it did attempt to control the questions through other methods, and it would seem unusual (especially for this party judging its past) if they were not intending to create the entire theme of the meeting so that it ignored the public and only made them look good and increase their popularity and power.

    Personally I was questioning that with all the public concern and out cry over the whole health care issue just what was the purpose of having such a young person with limited experience and knowledge on the subject take up time with such a useless question.

    I guess if you had a purpose in seeing the point be made that people opposing the proposed plan oppose it strongly and are not afraid to be verbal about their feelings then I guess you may think the question had use or value, but unless you have been hiding under a rock for the last 8 months or so you already knew that, and did not need to hear it from kid.
