Gotta love this:

Opponents of health insurance reform may find the truth a little inconvenient, but as our second president famously said, “facts are stubborn things.”

Scary chain emails and videos are starting to percolate on the internet, breathlessly claiming, for example, to “uncover” the truth about the President’s health insurance reform positions.


Since we can’t keep track of all of them here at the White House, we’re asking for your help. If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to flag at

Recall how the left went bats&%t crazy over the Bush administration big brother. Now Obama wants you to send them information about anyone sending emails that disagree with his socialism.

It’s all a-ok now tho eh?

Think this kind of thing would of went over well with the left a few years ago?

There is a lot of disinformation about the war in Iraq out there, spanning from casualties to oil conspiracies. These rumors often travel just below the surface via chain emails or through casual conversation. Since we can’t keep track of all of them here at the White House, we’re asking for your help. If you get an email or see something on the web about Iraq that seems fishy, send it to flag at

Nope….don’t think it would.

Hell, who was it who said this?

“I’m sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and disagree with this administration, somehow you’re not patriotic. We need to stand up and say we’re Americans, and we have the right to debate and disagree with any administration.”

Care to guess? Google it….

As far as the facts….they can in fact be stubborn things but we have Obama’s own words…not taken out of context, not spliced and diced. Quotes where he envisions the elimination of employer coverage and his desire for a single payer socialist system:

“I happen to be a proponent of a single payer universal health care program. I see no reason why the United States of America, the wealthiest country in the history of the world, spending 14 percent of its Gross National Product on health care cannot provide basic health insurance to everybody. And that’s what Jim is talking about when he says everybody in, nobody out. A single payer health care plan, a universal health care plan. And that’s what I’d like to see. But as all of you know, we may not get there immediately. Because first we have to take back the White House, we have to take back the Senate, and we have to take back the House.”

Nope…no way to misconstrue that.

And then we have yahoo’s like Dick Durbin saying that a lot of calls to the White House proves nothing except that their switchboard is small and complaining that the opposition to the health care bill is just the insurance companies busing people in:

All this Chicago style strong-arming isn’t scaring people tho.

Doesn’t mean Obama and company won’t continue in their Chicago ways, but it does mean we need to stay vigilant in calling the tactics for what they are.
