O, yes, good old Libby.  She is once again showing her concern for her fellow man. (think about it)
I swear I’m worried about McQ. I’ve always thought of him as a sort of rational voice for his side of the fence but talk about grasping at straws . His attempt to paint the left’s response to Bush having trotted out the 9 year old prodigy to sell his failed Social Security plan as equivalent to the vitriolic horde that descended on the Frost family is far removed from what I would have expected of him.
I mean, does he honestly believe there’s equivalence between young Frost making a what, five minute statement, about how a program already in place has helped him and this?
Noah will travel to a handful of states ahead of visits by the president and will go on radio programs, answer trivia questions and say a few words about Social Security. Though he is obviously not an expert (and not really a lobbyist, either), officials say the effort is a lighthearted way to underline Mr. Bush’s message.
“What I want to tell people about Social Security is to not be afraid of the new plan,” Noah said. “It may be a change, but it’s a good change.”
This is a kid Bush turned into a traveling freak show in order to sell a radical change in the largest and oldest safety net in our society. And I’m sure that the named parties can defend their own posts but to take a few words out context of a couple of parody posts, cite a couple of other low traffic bloggers and one other post critical of the president and the two other bloggers who pointed to it and claim this is the equivalent of what happened to the Frost family doesn’t suggest a frim grip on critical thinking.
If anybody digs up the posts where we posted the family’s contact information, their workplaces, their financial history and photos of their home and vehicles, along with Noah’s school records let me know.
Well, Libby, I have to tell you that I have some bad news for you. The reason that nobody did that, in that case, was not some misguided morality or other. The Democrats have never shown a propensity for doing that, rather being driven by a morality which states that anything that keeps them in power is moral. Let’s face it, given what we’ve seen in the last eight years, if there was any chance whatsoever of the Democrats gaining anything out of that exposure of that family, they would have done so. The fact of the matter is that the reason they did not so expose that family, was because they wouldn’t have gained anything from it, and the situation was precisely as the White House projected it as being.
Unlike what the Democrats did with the Frost family.
I will say this is again… let there be no mistake.
If in fact the Frosts are emblematic of the type of family the Democrats think are deserving of healthcare paid for with MY money, we as a nation have bigger problems than we’re going to be able to solve by throwing your money and mine at it. We have a problem centering on honesty and responsibility.
We also have a problem with a political party willing to toss aside those concepts. Think about it; Democrats willing to toss aside honesty and responsibility. Does the concept shock you? Me, neither.
Any questions, Libby?
PS: Oh, by the way… do you actually read who writes things, over there?
That’s not McQ… it’s Henke you’re on about. While Henke and I have had stout disagreements in the past… this ain’t one of ’em.
