Let Obama’s “Healthcare Reform” Whitewashing Begin!

(UPDATE 8/18:  New posts up soon…follow us on Twitter to find out when!)

From the official White House Twitter:

Get a healthy dose of reality about #healthcare insurance reform: http://bit.ly/thBOH #hcr #hir-rc

Look at that…they even made a funny pun! And yet still managed to come off as arrogant as possible. Dare I say…mission accomplished?  (If you want an actual reality check, take a look at Sweetness & Light’s brilliant dissection of the bill)

Notice that this is coming out on the day after Pelosi & Hoyer’s USA Today op-Ed saying “[d]rowning out opposing views is simply un-American.”  Isn’t the President attempting to do just that?

Notice this also is coming out soon after Sarah Palin’s fiery editorial which succintly described the massive shortcomings of this plan.  (NOTE:

And, notice the stunningly simple fact that the Democrats have a majority in both houses, yet can’t quite seem to obtain the votes for this bill.  Support for it is falling by the day.

Doesn’t this all just smack of desperation?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

UPDATE:

The desperation thickens, with Obama himself holding a smoothly manufactured completely spontaneous townhall today.

Michelle Malkin has the analysis, including the kicker:

Oh, crikey. Obama calls on a 13-year-old girl to lament the “mean signs” about health care reform. “How do kids know what’s true.”

Of course.  Those “signs with swastikas on them,” remember?

Someone gets an A-plus for using Democratic talking points out of the classroom!

PLANT UPDATE: Via Michelle Malkin: So apparently this “completely random” little girl was a plant.  Her mother and her mother’s law firm are huge Obama supporters, have donated money, met the family, etc.

Of course, this girl joins a long list lineup of plants at “spontaneous” townhall meetings, which Michelle has explained in: The Illustrated Guide to ObamaCare Human Props

Move along folks, nothing to see here…

UPDATE 8/12: Another day, another plant?  (via HotAir Headlines, Patterico)

Who is “Dr.” Roxana Mayer?

UPDATE II 8/12: Roxana Mayer: Not a doctor, but an Obama delegate.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Other Updates…

UPDATE II:

Hillary Clinton may not be channeling her husband, but is Obama channeling Biden?

[on how his healthcare plan will not hurt the private healthcare industry]  If you think about it, UPS and FedEx are doing just fine.  No, they are!  It’s the Post Office that’s always having problems.

Is he seriously saying the line for operations will be like the line for stamps?

Imagine those $50 end-it-all pills at only 44 cents.

UPDATE III: Thanks for the link, Frugal Cafe Blog Zone!

UPDATE IV: Via Hot Air’s Quote of the Day–Camille Paglia nails it.

A must-read.  So many quotables, so here’s a little taste:

Blaming obstructionist Republicans is nonsensical because Democrats control all three branches of government. It isn’t conservative rumors or lies that are stopping healthcare legislation; it’s the justifiable alarm of an electorate that has been cut out of the loop and is watching its representatives construct a tangled labyrinth for others but not for themselves. No, the airheads of Congress will keep their own plush healthcare plan — it’s the rest of us guinea pigs who will be thrown to the wolves.

UPDATE V: I’ve received some feedback about exactly how all this qualifies as desperation.

Let’s approach this mathematically.

Delaying the bill + refusing to read it + verbally degrading constituents + stonewalling + hobbling together a “reality check” website when all else fails = desperation.

If the bill was so important and so necessary, then why couldn’t it have been broken down into bite-size pieces to reassure the public and highlight the good aspects of the plan? Why is obfuscation and smoke-and-mirrors the modus operandi here?

UPDATE VI (8/12):  Sarah Palin’s follow-up on “death panels” comment…worth a full read!

UPDATE VII (8/13): “End of life” consultations have been DROPPED from the bill…I think we should thank Sarah for bringing attention to this in the most high-profile way!

UPDATE VIII (8/13): Sarah Palin’s response to the dropping of “end of life” provisions from the bill and what else needs to be dropped…another excellent read!

UPDATE IX (8/13): A great big THANK YOU to the Michelle Malkin & Hot Air readers who have visited the site! You folks made yesterday one of the biggest days in Bulletproof Diction history, and this post has become the MOST popular post on the site.

PLEASE tell your friends (and enemies) about Bulletproof Diction…the more that we spread the truth about this bill…the more that we exercise our First Amendment rights…the more that we remind our government that they serve We the People…the greater ability we have to ensure the American Dream of Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness for posterity!

  3. It is almost insulting how the politicians in Washington view us “unclean masses” when it comes to what they’re trying to do. Tort reform? No? How can you possibly address costs of health care without addressing the problem of tort reform? Don’t lawyer costs result in increased costs for everything from a single pill to the most advanced life support systems? Don’t doctors order unneeded tests so they won’t be sued? Let’s make a deal with the politicians in Washington… we’ll stop letting you know how pissed off we are at town meetings when you actually have a tort reform bill. We’ll actually believe your bullshit when you start to address what is really important and cost effective.

    • Exactly. It’s an insult to the intelligence and welfare of the American people that they’re trying to ram through a bill that nobody has read nor fully comprehends. If they actually cared about us, there would be multiple, smaller bills addressing individual facets of the system.

      It doesn’t bring much traffic to this site, since I doubt many sane people read yours.

      And one more thing…I noticed that your list of links seemed strikingly similar to Michelle Malkin’s trackbacks list, including keeping them in the same order.

  6. I’m a 57 yr. old unemployed oilfield worker who pays his own taxes, buys my own insurance, have never drawn any unemployment wages. Sitting here wondering why I, need some one like the government, to tell me when & where I should do this & that, If this is the case,than everyone should have to be made to comply, congressman, senators & even the president. I’ve grown up admiring how things are done in America. But I believe if this country keeps going in the direction it,s headed, than look out. Another Revolution. Who knows, some thing has to change, we are going way too fast, without looking that far ahead

    • Thank you for being a responsible, independent American. If our government actually understood and respected the virtues of the citizens whom they serve, then I doubt this healthcare bill would even be considered.

  7. The fact that the NH townhall meeting with Obama was filled with so many supporters may be easy to explain, even by a non-geek like me. Keep this recent article in mind when you follow my logic below: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/08/10/AR2009081002743_pf.html – U.S. Web-Tracking Plan Stirs Privacy Fears

    Something to think about:
    Remember that the White House has hired technically savvy people to handle their web presence, not to mention the campaign that put Obama into the White House. Google employees and others have joined the Administration.
    The White House has frequently asked the public to submit questions and comments on various issues. People who do so typically fill in government web forms.
    This process allows the WH to collect email and IP addresses for perhaps several million people. I’ll bet it also allows them to sort those comments according to the views expressed — opponents vs.supporters.
    A presorted database would be a goldmine for controlling who gets access to Obama events.
    All the WH would have to do to keep opponents out of a townhall is to program their computer to crosscheck all applicants for townhall tickets or other venues. If the IP or email address shows up on the opponents list, the computer ignores the request. If it shows up on the supporter database, it gets placed into the lottery.
