I read an interesting article that tried really hard to show both sides of the health care debates but fell short making both sides sound equally nuts! The article posted here seems to point out that individuals are getting really upset when it comes to the issue of national health care. Those opposed are loudly sharing their voice and for some reason are dismissed as crazy simply because they exercise their right to oppose the actions of their government. Those in support use typical political double speak to show those opposed to nationalized health care as "wrong" without really saying how they are "right" themselves.
For me, the quote from Barack Obama was the perfect example of political double speak. The article reads, "Obama answered his critics indirectly. At his town hall in Portsmouth, N.H., he urged Americans to ignore those who try to "scare and mislead the American people," telling a cordial audience, "For all the scare tactics out there, what is truly scary is if we do nothing."
In Obama's own words, he admonishes to ignore people who use scare tactics like "what is truly scary is if we do nothing."
So Obama is telling us to ignore Obama.... done!
