    It goes on and on, guess they all needed another 15 minutes of face time in front of a crowd of 4k, guess that is their priorities.. rally behind Michelle and her insanity..

    In the salient and viable words of Real World, it really is Coke or Pepsi...

    Guess it is ok in your book to excuse the excess and the need for 15 mintues of face time of the congress and obfuscate with an Obama comment... it is so typical, no one from the extreme right ever deals with the issue at hand... hijack threads and posts from extreme blogs are the order of the day... lemmings unite.

    Excuse my bluntness, but Michelle Bachman is a (not very accomplished) liar.

    Untrue statements in RED -

    Excerpt from an interview with Hannity:

    Hannity: And joining me now with more on all of this are two of the organizers of today's rally, Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann and Iowa Representative Steven King.

    Congresswoman, it was less than a week ‚ÄĒ it was a week tomorrow that you announced on this very program that you wanted people to come. Twenty thousand plus people showed up. Were you as surprised as I was?

    REP. MICHELE BACHMANN, R-MINN.: Absolutely I was. We had no idea. When I was on your show last Friday evening, that was the initial shot that was heard around the world. And people heard that, Sean.

    Today people told me they heard that call out on your show on Friday night, and they immediately started contacting other people. And this was totally word of mouth. This was nothing that we organized, nothing that we planned. We didn't order one bus, one carload. Nothing. Complete word of mouth. And estimates are anywhere between 20 and 45,000 people had assembled.

    Thousands Protest Health Care on Capitol Hill - Hannity - FOXNews.com


    And the truth, also in RED -

    Several thousand protestors marched on the Capitol yesterday in opposition to the health care bill that House Democrats hope to vote on by the end of the week. Less than two months ago, tens of thousands of so-called Tea Party protesters marched on the capital to oppose ‚Äúout-of-control‚ÄĚ government spending and the Democratic health reform plan.


    Mr. Schofield said he came down with over 100 protesters from Rhode Island, on two buses that left from Warwick at midnight on Wednesday


    Telegram.com - A product of the Worcester Telegram & Gazette

    The crowd, per Russert, is so far about 3,000 to 3,500, according to Capitol Police estimates.

    *** UPDATE *** Three Capitol Hill police officers all guessed that the crowd numbered at about 4,000.


    What's* Politico's source for claiming*10,000 protesters*gathered in D.C. today? | Media Matters for America

    Freedom Works has launched a website called ‚ÄúDontKillGrandma.com‚ÄĚ listing recommended tactics for activists to engage in while protesting health reform. For the Thursday rally, FreedomWorks says activists should engage in a ‚Äúsimultaneous chant of ‚ÄėKill the Bill.‚Äô‚ÄĚ FreedomWorks is funded by corporate money and is led by Dick Armey, the former Republican Majority Leader and until recently lobbyist from DLA Piper.

    "]Americans for Prosperity (AFP) is busing people to the rally. AFP is led by astroturf lobbyist Tim Phillips and is bankrolled by gas and oil baron David Koch, America‚Äôs 9th richest person and the financier of dozens of conservative think-tanks, publications, and politicians. Like they did for the April tea parties, AFP has commissioned at least 10 buses from Maryland, New Jersey, and North Carolina to bring protesters ‚ÄĒ free of charge ‚ÄĒ to DC for the rally.

    Kinda makes ya wonder what else she's willing to lie about, doesn't it?

    So did the bill pass or not? If it passed clearly her vote wasn't needed.

    She is doing a great service to this country by rallying opposition to this disaster of a bill. It also appears she is having a real impact Pelosi has delayed the vote to next week as support among dems crumbles.

    Keep up the great work Michelle. Ignore the MSM sniping over the crowd estimate.

    She's pretty good at ignoring the truth, I don't think she'll have a problem with it.

    It's not just a "tea party", some of us consider ending the squeaker's health care spending spree very important.

    Michelle Bachman and doing a great service to her country, is an oxymoron...all she does is her Glenn Beck paranoia routine as an elected official.

    I know you do, Belichick...and I can and do actually respect that from people such as yourself who try pretty hard to remain level-headed, civil and honest. The problem is that people like "The TeaBaggers" and Michelle and Glen and even ole' Harry Boy here tend to make it harder and harder for the rational objections from people such as yourself to be heard and addressed.

    Your rational concerns are being overrun by the hysteria and the irrational fear being promoted by the above mentioned media hounds who really, when all is said and done, are far more concerned with their own popularity than they are with whatever health care Americans are going to end up with.

    Rational people in a position of power don't take to the streets - they sit down in congress or in The Senate or on their TV shows and they talk - and they offer real suggestions and real improvements and they voice real concerns - they don't run amuck and tell easily disproven lies while hysterically (and falsely) hyping "death panels" and comparing holocaust pictures to health care.

    There's little choice until the midterms. The Dems have massive majorities. We need to get people's attention however we can, if this health care then the cap & tax get passed before the midterms it's all over and it won't be just the rich that pay. Sorry for the hyperbole but if there's any time to take to the streets and take over the Capital, this is the time. We're about to spend $1T+ (over 10 years) and aren't even looking at tort reform because the lawyers are in the Dems' back pocket. LOWER the costs, don't just play a shell game with money.

    More bullsh*t. You posted this hours ago and The House in in session right now - still prepared to vote.

    Not saying it might not be postponed - but I am pointing out that at the time you posted this there was no such motion brought by Pelosi or anyone else. Nor is there such a motion now.

    Why would you say "Pelosi has delayed to vote to next week as support among dems crumbles" when it so obviously isn't true?

    I just don't get it.

    Isn't tort reform a states right issue???, it was tried in Texas... and the doctors pay less insurance, but it has not trickled down to the consumer yet..

    If there was an attempt at tort reform, the states right hysteria would ensue, huge medical judgements come from state courts..

    Most civil people agree with tort reform, but all it seems to do is put more money in the Doctors hands, not the consumer..

    If the bill passes those creeps in Congress will never get elected to anything again for as long as they live, they will be run out and humiliated come the 2012 elections as will their Dear Leader, Barack Hussein Obama.

    I don't care who should do it, it needs to be done. We need to lower costs and to try all the legitimate ways first before spending $1.2 trillion (at last count, it'll probably be higher). Do we want to lower healthcare costs or spend an additional trillion+ ???

    Advocate for tort reform in your state, this is not the business of congress... no one would disagree with it, all this argument does is cloud the issue...
