They should sent that to all the ReTHUG morons against universal health care.

28. Thank you, malaise, I did see that. And you are right, it is a great response.

What I don't understand is how ANYONE could think it is a good thing to deny basic health care TO ANYONE.

above all else. It blows my mind particularly since they wrap themselves around their Jebus loving patriotic BS.

That's the sad truth. At least in the US there will be resistance given the clearly stated separation of powers in the Constitution.

5. Andy was a lifelong Democrat as well as a great guy

Andy was also one of the best actors of his time. What a life he had, so many great roles and so many helping hands lent to others many of whom went on to greatness on their own.

33. President Obama's tribute

President Barack Obama: "Michelle and I were saddened to hear about the passing of Andy Griffith this morning. A performer of extraordinary talent, Andy was beloved by generations of fans and revered by entertainers who followed in his footsteps. He brought us characters from Sheriff Andy Taylor to Ben Matlock, and in the process, warmed the hearts of Americans everywhere. Our thoughts and prayers are with Andy's family."

Ron Howard: "His pursuit of excellence and the joy he took in creating served generations & shaped my life," the film director, who played Opie Taylor on "The Andy Griffith Show," said on his Twitter page. "I'm forever grateful RIP Andy."

North Carolina Gov. Beverly Perdue: "North Carolina has lost its favorite son. Throughout his career, he represented everything that was good about North Carolina: a small town boy and UNC graduate who took a light-hearted approach to some of the attributes he grew up with and turned them into a spectacularly successful career. And regardless of where that career took him, he always came back to North Carolina and spent his final years here."

25. You can tell he is frail there but still....

 

his history as a "wholesome" character is palpable. Glad he made this. I also think the Dems would be smart to include this in their thanks to him and in their campaign to push back on the hate from the right.

34. And I haven't heard it mentioned on MSNBC.

Has anyone played the ad?

This is such sad news to me I've tried to block it out all day. So I haven't been listening very closely.
