    Rick Perry 'Taken Aback' By Tea Party Audience Cheering, "Let Patient Die"

    Texas Governor Rick Perry says he was "taken aback" by an incident that occurred at Monday night's Republican presidential debate after U.S. Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) was asked if a man who is sick should be left to die because he is uninsured,according to NBC News.
    In addressing the situation that unfolded Perryreportedly said, "We're the party of life." HuffPost's Sam Stein reports on the incident:
    What do you tell a guy who is sick, goes into a coma and doesn't have health insurance? Who pays for his coverage? "Are you saying society should just let him die?" Wolf Blitzer asked."Yeah!" several members of the crowd yelled out.

    Apparently Perry didn't get the memo. Many of the right wing republicans and Tea Party folks proclaim themselves the "Party of Life". They spend much of their time trying to change abortion laws and clamoring they are the protectors of sacred lives. But of course once babies are born, they no longer give a damn.

    Compassionate conservatism on display here. At its finest.

    At least Perry didn't say that. Good for him.

    The sentiment from some in the crowd is downright scary. I would be willing to bet that they would see things differently if the affected person was them or a relative. Sad.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    The saying 'Only the strong survive' is not to be taken lightly in a far right political/economic setup, because being the 'weak' can literally mean almost certain death via starvation, no access to medical care, ect.

    And he was not taken aback when they cheered his high number of executions?

    Why is Paul being blamed for the crowds reaction? Wolf Blitzer presented a dishonest question and a false dichotomy. As Paul explained, the choice is not between a big government program and letting people die without care. There are other options to caring for those who truly cannot afford care or the irresponsible that fail to prepare for the worst (it won't be ideal for the latter and should not be).

    buncha bs.......the bigger problem here is that TEA PARTIERS shouted "let him die"...and TEA PARTIERS cheered executions. makes me wonder why anyone would be a part of that movement. has michelle bachmann produced the name of the woman who ALLEGEDLY said her daughter "got" mental retardation after the gardisil vaccine? gotta love those tea partiers, though, they are probably trying to outlaw that vaccine as i write.

    paul is the most honest person running for the nomination. unfortunately, he's also bat**** crazy.

    So let me get this straight....Perry comes out against the reaction of the crowd in that particular situation and instead of saying, "yeah, he's right..that was bad on them" you turn it into some sort of diatribe against almost half of the country?

    Well, hell...

    So let us get this straight....a bunch of teabaggers say they think we should just let them die, so it's wrong to point out that the teabaggers think we should just let them die?

    Is that why you dishonestly made up that BS about a "diatribe" against "almost half the country"?
