This article can be found here but it is extremely short so I decided to just steal the whole damned thing. I wish he'd just stay right away from my home state. We have enough problems without him being here.
PORTSMOUTH, N.H. (AP) -- President Barack Obama is looking forward to making his case for health care reform Tuesday at Portsmouth High School in New Hampshire.
Melody Barnes, the president's domestic policy adviser, says Obama will explain to Seacoast residents what's at stake, and why it's important to move forward now. (because he won't have both houses of Congress for much longer)
Barnes said even those who have insurance understand the problem because health care premiums have doubled in 15 years, causing deductibles and co-payments to go up. (what in Hell has NOT doubled in 15 years?)
Those who haven't already registered have missed the boat. The deadline for registering online for up to two tickets was 3 p.m. Saturday. It's unclear how many people will be invited to the town hall-style forum; Stone Gymnasium has a capacity of about 2,500 people.
The Average American WILL NOT be attending this circus. I'd rather sit on the throne with a good book. Besides, there is not likely to be any conservatives there and even if there are, they will not likely get the chance to speak. I tried to get in on one of these circle jerks the other day---to no avail. I wrote about it in a comment at Z's and decided to steal it back and add it to this post. Here it is:
"Senator Shaheen from New Hampshire had a teletown meeting too. They called the day before and I said yes I would like to be part of it. It was scheduled for 6:10 until 7:10 and they would call when the time came. I slammed down my dinner and left the bar early to be there sitting next to the phone and waited until 6:30 when they finally called. I pushed the buttons as directed for those that wanted to speak. Every person that spoke was asked "Please repeat your question." They were ALL prescreened before they were allowed to speak, which by the way I never got the chance to do. What a pussy way to interact with your constituents! To add insult to injury, the bitch had to leave the phone to staff members several times so she could go vote so half the questions weren't even addressed by her. It was SICKENING!! As you can guess, there were NO tough questions."
What a complete waste of my time. I sat and listened to that liberal bullshit for what seemed to be all frigging night. That's why I won't waste my time driving 2 hours to go see that moron the leftard loonies think is the messiah. He and his 1000+ pages of horseshit can go pound sand! And he can take that fugly pizza-faced Piglosi with him.
