    Months ago I warned the cognitive dissonance between what the public put their approval ratings and their assessments on issues, it's taking hold now:

    Obama's at 61%, if you believe the numbers.

    And is there any doubt why? I think it should be clear who's obstructing progress on all issues like Healthcare and the economy. Any time we try to fix something, the lobbyists come running in to pay off the politicians to obstruct.

    And to those who say there is no difference between the two parties, you are admitting that the corporations do control the process. That means they own us. That means your vote doesn't count for shit. But clearly you don't care about the right to vote. If you did, the 2000 and 2004 elections would have upset you.

    And so when you say Dems are no better, you are proving my point that corporations have gotten too powerful and involved in our politics. So checkmate either way.

    I don't give a fuck about the Democrats. I just know the GOP is corrupt. The Dems aren't as corrupt because at least with them there is a chance.

    Will they/we win on healthcare? Probably not. But remember, if the GOP were in charge, their position would be that healthcare is just fine and let the free markets decide. And give the healthcare giants more tax breaks.. Yea.

    Boehner's approval rating is at 15%. But the corporate media wants you to believe that Obama's popularity is bad at 61%? Only because it was at 80%. People are just frustrated that he can't get anything done. But he won't lose in 2012. Who's gonna beat him?

    People are starting to question single payer/public option because of all the lies that are circulating. Their being feared by the lies. Its 10 or 15 sellout Democrats and a really good anti reform campaign that is blocking any results. We saw it all before in the 90's when they did this to Hillary.

    Where is the liberal media on this? So this proves the media isn't really liberal. If it were, it would be pushing for a public plan. It would be calling out the blue dogs. So this proves the media is corporate controlled.

    And why are people like John Kerry flip flopping on this? Why is Max Baucus against single payer? Don't say that they have "come to their senses" or that they are "centrist" democrat with common sense. It only makes you look stupid or like a liar, because you know they are getting $ from the healthcare industry to squash any reforms.

    So you are an advocate of corporations calling all the shots. Don't ever say you want campaign or lobby reform. You'd be lying. You hate government so much you want the for profits to run/own the country. Really smart. :cuckoo:

    And the people are stupid. They are uninformed. Hell, you are informed as hell and you are still wrong. Imagine how easy it is for the under informed to be wrong. So imagine the masses who don't even pay close attention. They'll swallow any lie you tell them if enough of the media is on your side.

    Holy shit Fox was soooo negative on the Dems last night. I couldn't watch.

These politicians don't care about anything but votes... If their people wanted it they would vote for it... They are worried about their own ass come election time....It's not really that hard to figure for most of us...sheesh

    And you claim to know whats going on? :lol:

    People aren't flipping. They're being scared/lied to. Very effective. And the politicians that are flipping, well, follow the money buddy. And don't claim dems are corrupt too and then deny the ones taking $ from the healthcare lobbyists are not guilty, just because now you like the outcome. And don't cry about campaign finance or lobby reform, because you love how this system is corrupted. It works for you and the private companies. You're a dummy. I know that much. You think this benefits you? Stupid American voters. The rich ones aren't dumb, but you are not rich.

    Yes. You can't even grasp what I'm telling you. I'll try anyways. The Dems are no better when it comes to taking money from lobbyists, right?

    And the Dems blocking healthcare reform are the ones that are taking money from the lobbyists.

    But you won't admit that the GOP are taking money from lobbyists and working for them instead of us? :eusa_liar:

    And now you want to say the blue dog dems are the honest ones? :eusa_liar:

    And I didn't flip flop on my desire to reform healthcare, the sheeple of this country did. And so much for it being a liberal media if it was able to do that. Its amazing how many ways you are either wrong or lying.

    We elected these mother fuckers to reform healthcare. I don't give a fuck about your fake ass public opinion polls.

    I'm not alone. And have you ever thought that maybe you are wrong?

    Answer me those questions I asked earlier.

    1. Which Dems are "just as bad" as Republicans?

    I say its the blue dogs who are taking money from the healthcare lobbyists.

    Or is it the socialist Democrats? But don't you guys suggest that Obama is a sellout too? But then he can't be a socialist.

    I say the ones you call socialists are the ones who truly work for the American people. The blue dogs are the ones that are just as bad as the GOP, and they are the ones that are taking money from the lobbyists.

    So you see which side of the argument you are on.
