enormous sums of wealth were transfered to the military industrial complex under previous administration, a 9-11 set-up, w/2 wars financed simultaneously, economy was slowly but surely and predictably ravaged, and now they want to blame 8 years of this on a man who has served only a few hundred days as the new president.
Economy will slowly start to improve as soon as we get out of these two wars which are a waste of human lives, to say nothing of the wasted money.
5. Especially when they claim he is like Hitler because of health care reform
I am trying for the life of me to figure out how a public option to help people receive health care is in any way comparable to the genocide of millions of people but I just can't do it. How much do you want to bet that over half the people shouting down these town halls will be first in line for the public option once they figure out how much money it will save them?
7. Even if the savings were put in front of them and they paid less as a result...
...they would still believe that they were paying much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much more and that Obama was 'screwing them over' and taking money from "...MY PAYCHECK!". Even if they do take advantage of its benefits!
If their Republican overlords want them to believe something, then they will. If Limbaugh or whatever other idiots they live by told them that raping cats was the only way for them to "...TAKE BACK MY COUNTRY!" then they would do so with not a moment's contemplation.
11. yeah, well I also remember those images of Hitler and * in Europe
so, it wasn't just Americans thinking that some of *'s ACTIONS reminded them of Hitler. The Patriot Act, censorship, "catapulting the propaganda", invading a country based upon lies (look at Hitler's trumped up reasons for invading Czechoslovakia and Poland), calling out people to watch what you say (faux patriotism), loyalty oaths, torture, war profiteering and on and on it goes. If the teabaggers were doing this under *'s administration they'd be herded in a protest zone and banned from those contrived, folksy townhall meetings. Oh wait, they're *'s base, never mind!!!!
