    Hopefully people will keep this in mind while listening to Obama's speech tomorrow. They've had 8 months to measure his words against his actions and if they get fooled by his rhetoric now they probably actually NEED someone to look after them and tell them where to squat and lean.

    Listening to a Liar
    by Thomas Sowell
    "One plain fact should outweigh all the words of Barack Obama and all the impressive trappings of the setting in which he says them: He tried to rush Congress into passing a massive government takeover of the nation's medical care before the August recess-- for a program that would not take effect until 2013!
    Whatever President Obama is, he is not stupid. If the urgency to pass the medical care legislation was to deal with a problem immediately, then why postpone the date when the legislation goes into effect for years-- more specifically, until the year after the next Presidential election? "

    You certainly are not narrow minded. You are closed minded.

    You are what is making the conservative movement decline.

    The intelligent, open minded conservatives are taking a back seat to Joe the plumber, Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh and pea brains like you.

    I certainly hope you did not allow your children listen to Obama's speech today.

    You are a simple minded idiot.

    Please, this speech will correct those idiots at townhall meetings that can't have civil discourse. The AMA has even said this bill is the farthest from a government takeover. I want a public option, America needs a public option to keep those greedy insurance companies in check.

    OK everyone......republicans want you to cover your ears so you don't get "indoctrinated"

    They are afraid the lies they have been telling will be debunked. Such as

    Death Panels
    Govt Takeover of healthcare
    Govt Funded abortions
    Coverage of illegals
    Endless waits for coverage
    Denial of coverage to the elderly

    They are terrified their lies will once again be exposed.

    Sorry, but pot and kettle syndrome is strong in the Obama era. Why is it Obama is trying to silence them instead of actually debunking them if they are such lies?

    What the republicans fear about tonights speech is that all the fearmongering and misinformation they have been selling the American people will be shown to be lies.

    We the People will once again see the republicans for the deceptive lackeys they have become

    The New healthcare will kill my grandma!

    Healthcare will pay for ABORTIONS!

    Illegal mexicans will be covered but not grandma!

    Death panels will deny coverage to old people

    You will have to wait MONTHS for service

    You will not be able to pick your doctor!

    The GOVERNMENT will take over all healthcare!

    All are lies circulated by the rightwing. Like their lie last week about Obama indoctrinating kids, they will be exposed on these lies also
