Everyone should read the comments to reinforce that we canít take Obamaís reelection for granted. Donít look back and donít slow down until November 7.

14. Wrong. Rmoney would have told her insurance is offered by corporations.

 

Corporations are people, my friend. Corporations could be your friend next time, too.

Christie would have said, " Look numnuts, you don't know what you're talking about."

10. He would tell her that her sister she should

"shop around and get the best care that she can afford"

and when Stephanie reminds him that her sister had died, he would say: "Next question"

21. Or he would have asked her why she didn't just cash in some of the stock options

set up in a trust fund by her parents like he and Ann had to do when they were "struggling"? No trust fund, well then she should have just borrowed the money from her parents. I mean, doesn't everyone's parents have an extra 100 Grand sitting around collecting dust?

22. Parental loans

Romney would have reminded her that she could have taken out a loan from her parents to take care of it. No problem!

11. Reagan was the type to show her sympathy for the cameras

 

and then sign a bill that would cut off funding for a program helping her sister's children.

He really only read the script.

8. I have to admit to welling up when I read this.

 

Then I read all the hatred in the comments section from those who will be content to die alone and had an equal and opposite reaction.
I lost my best friend 3 years ago to lung cancer.
He made it through the first round only to succumb after being sent home to die.
I feel that the insurance company paid out all that they were going to and capped off his treatment after the first quarter million dollars failed to work.
I wish this on no one,something had to be done to bring the for profit death panels under control.
GObama!

Then I stopped. Screw 'em. Let them wallow in the filth of their hatred. Win or lose, I will remember these photos, and what they stand for.

16. he does seem like a good egg...

hell, i'd invite him to hang out with me and bbq... but i think the secret service might want to have a chat with me first... or worse, i'd have to feed them too

as much as i'd wish he'd do more with certain issues, i still think he's the best guy for the job.

In the middle of that huge crowd, the two of them might well as be in an empty room.

27. Medicare for all!

Lost my best friend needlessly a year ago August. Completely treatable high blood pressure, but didn't want to go to Dr. because she still owed money and they made her feel bad. I would have given her anything, but she was too proud. She waited till her Medicare kicked in, then had a massive stroke. Medicare paid for her last week in intensive care while machines kept her alive. When you're my age you know more and more people like my friend... just hoping to hang on until medicare, and while they're waiting, simple knee surgery becomes a knee replacement, diabetes becomes kidney disease, and high blood pressure kills.

32. I'm reminded of, "Desperately Disillusioned." It breaks my heart.

"Desperately Disillusioned": http://www.democraticunderground.com/1002184082

"Morally bankrupt and contemptible": http://www.democraticunderground.com/100236215



It's impossible to take seriously such criticisms. Whenever I look at the Obama Diary or other photo sites with Obama and his supporters (or "defenders" I see thousands of people who support this President, who it really means a lot to. People who really need him in their lives, not privileged people who can spout nonsense hateful stuff about Obama and his supporters.

It matters.

34. That's our President!

I can't stop crying when I see these pics and read Ms. Miller's story.

No Republican would do this. That's why Obama is everybody's President and Rmoney is nobody's President.


I love you all, DU!
