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

    I have multiple friends on Facebook who are doctors, and I was dying to see what they think of the sign, so I posted the article on my Facebook page. I am relieved to say they are just as disgusted as I am. (They are not afraid to take a crack at me because I am an Obama supporter.) I'm glad my friends are professionals.

    Ah, it's good to have the petty, childish, insignificant tantrums of the old aps back. I love it!

    Yep. I wouldn't want that idiot touching my privates. So I'm glad he outed himself (so to speak).

    I had the feeling that most professionals would feel this way, but I don't have anyone in the medical field to ask who is a conservative, which is who I would be most interested in hearing from. I am glad to see that you seem to be able to provide it.

    Do we know of any MDs of the conservative persuasion who participate here on the forum?

    I was very careful to say "major" ideas because you are right there have been some smaller ideas. But tort reform that has actually worked in Texas or allowing insurance companies to compete over state lines were both refused.

    I found the one day conference Obama had with republicans disingenuous and a political stunt IMO.

    As far as what Bush did or did not know, we'll have to agree to disagree on that one. For I am one who believes now, as I did back then, that his manipulation of the media and the cherry-picking of his facts was a carefully orchestrated maneuver to lead our nation to war with Iraq. However, I do conceed, that there were many gullible politicians, on both sides of the aisle, who fell for his bull**** and went along with his plan. The oval office lying in such a serious matter seemed beyond comprehension to some folks. But, like you said, hindsite being 20/20, I would hope we all know better now.
    Agreed

    My point was simply, people agree with polls when it agrees with them. I Googled RCP (since that is an "average" polling site,) trying to find a day to day chart with the approval/disapproval ratings to no avail. And I have simply run out of time. If you can find any, I would be interested in knowing.
    But here is some propaganda I was able to find Googling. I cannot attest to their validity, however.

    By Slim Margin, Americans Support Healthcare Bill's Passage
    I found this and it looks like you were right, there are some polls that have a majority liking this bill. Not many but some nonetheless.

    RealClearPolitics - Election Other - Obama and Democrats' Health Care Plan

    However, all that being said, I will be the first to admit, across the board, that most every poll I have seen always tips in the disapproval side. The days I remember it being reported on the approval side can be counted on one hand. Which brings me back to my original point and conclusion. When the polls favor someones ideological beliefs, the poll stands valid. When it doesn't, the poll is written off as invalid. I have seen both sides do this. Surely you can agree.
    Absolutely. Its part of politics

    Thank you for your civil and honest debate. I have to scoot now as I have a date with a lake, canoe and an ultra-light Shimano. If you want to pick it up later, count me in. In the meantime, have yourself a fine Texas weekend and keep your powder dry.
    You do the same. Its been fun. And I have to admit, I dig your sig

    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

    Yes yes yes, because aps friends page on facebook represents a scientific poll.

    I don't think I was shooting for a scientific poll. I was more wanting to hear their opinions and rationale.

    I doubt aps believes it is a scientific poll. But, the thing you have to ask yourself when given any information is: 'Am I better off with this information than without it?' and then qualify your answer as necessary. I am sure aps has her own method of evaluating the worth of the information she receives.
