    Bulls***. Why would a woman seek an abortion from a doctor who doesn't believe in them? It would be like forcing your orthodontist to remove your appendix.

    Re: Doctor tells Obama supporters: Go elsewhere for health care

    Because being an Obama supporter isn't something that is medically relevant that needs to be disclosed.
    So the sole difference is that you can more easily hide being an Obama supporter than your sexual preference to the doctor? So they have to conceal their political beliefs so this doctor can express his? Not a very logically consistent position.

    OK, but as I said before, the hysterics over his tongue in cheek display of political speech are priceless.
    Almost as funny as you trying so desperately trying to pretend its somehow different than doing the same thing to gays. Obviously its only funny if you aren't the target.

    Oh really? Well you might be surprised, because we (especially the president) have been extremely tolerant of the nonsense from the right, waiting for them to come to their senses. If you insist on making this unpleasantness permanent, you will quickly discover that we haven't even begun to push yet.

    Push what? More Progressive destruction? I can only hope... it will make the end result of a new dark age for Obama-like policies which is the end goal. Please... push as hard as you can and soon. I invite it and cannot wait for it to actually happen.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    You need to reread my post. I said nothing remotely close to saying his medical license had anything to do with his politics. I have said that his expression of his politics have everything to do with his ethics and professionalism. I have said this would be true whether he was a conservative or liberal. I have said that his ethics and unprofessionalism would preclude my using him as my caregiver.

    I work in technology. Occasionally, I indulge myself by talking about politics with coworkers. It only sometimes gets contentious, but I always regret it, because I think it is unprofessional. So, through that lense, I observe this doctor. I can't help but be disgusted.

    This disgust 'clouds my view' as to whether I feel I could trust him. I conclude that I could not.

    It's absolutely consistent. Being an Obama supporter is not medically relevant. I mean, unless we're talking about a mental health practitioner and then, maybe it is relevant.

    And let me remind you: I think a doctor has the right to say the same thing about gays.

    This was just a sad, pathetic attempt by you to try to make the discussion about me, anyway. You thought that if you could play "gotcha games" with the gay issue, you could score some points or something. You failed.

    Almost as funny as you trying so desperately trying to pretend its somehow different than doing the same thing to gays.
    It's not pretend. It's the way it is.

    Obviously its only funny if you aren't the target.
    WTF is that supposed to mean? If you could read, you would go back and see that I said he has the same right to do that to gays as he does to Obamaphiles. It's not the same issue, but he has the same right.

    And this is ALL irrelevant since he isn't turning anyone away from treatment in the first place.

    Show me one day since that bill passed where a majority of Americans were for it.

    Re: Olive branch: I know, I know. I watch FOXNews too. I know the official rightwing position on that. But, I also know what I saw and heard with my own eyes and ears. I am not one to have some ideological fantasy piss on my head and tell me it's raining. The olive branch was extended and refused. That's the FACTS I witnessed. No spin, propaganda, or whacko intrepretation trying to convince me that what is real, isn't real, is gonna fly. I am a hard-wired realist.
    That didn't answer my question. Why didn't Obama include even one major idea the Republicans brought him if this was supposed to be bipartisan? Explain yourself.

    OK, you're turn.
    Iraq war? In hindsight of course not but the intelligence they had at the time and what they could prove were two very different things. There is no evidence at all that proves Bush knew the intelligence was bad. None, zip, zero no matter how many "Bush lied people died" signs you've read.


    And no I wouldn't call Bush a good president. Fair but not good. but I doubt very much the reasons I have for that statement coincide with your own.

    As far as your polls question, I'm not sure what you mean. If you are asking did he deserve his poll numbers for the most part I would say yes.

    No need. I responded to it in full, with relevance, the first time.

    Funniest line ever.
