Tom Smith

Fifty percent oppose.  Frank Rich says opposition based on racism.  (Note the tea bags graphic accompanying Rich's screed.)

You know what was missing from Frank Rich's screed? One single example of, you know, racism. Which I thought was the whole point of the article.

Of course we're RAAAACIST! We don't care if anybody else has Obamacare, so long as WE DON'T have it.

Someone should note the irony of Frank Rich, white male, showing scorn and contempt for white males.

Obviously, they're all racists!

Racist against blacks or whites, since Obama is both?

I thought Condeleeza Rice was one of the smartest members of President Bush's cabinet. NY Slimes quickly forget Congress's Dems interrogating Condoleeza Rice like some southern sherrifs grilling an uppity ni- -- seriously, it was that Blatant and That Disgusting!!! And, all over national T.V. Where was the outrcry??? A fundraiser in NYC for John Kerry with the Local NYC Libtard actors, used the most foul language, leveled very racial slurs at Secretary of State Colin Powell. As soon as President Bush was inaugerated, the Slimes/WaPo started in with the most baseless criticisms of Powell -- get this -- he didn't TRAVEL. Although, war broke out, but what kind of excsue is that?? THAT-- from THEM is not racist. The rest of us not wanting to be forced to join Hitler's youth is.

I think he reason that the Dems are plying up the 'violent racist teabagger' canard is to use that excuse to not hold town hall meetings.

Rich writes:

"How curious that a mob fond of likening President Obama to Hitler knows so little about history that it doesn’t recognize its own small-scale mimicry of Kristallnacht..."

Huh? Rich's inverted contortion of Kristallnacht has the Nazi's complaining about the Jews smashing in the windows of Nazi Party Headquarters."

Talk about knowing little of history.

But I do agree with Rich about one thing: It sure never was about health care.

It was about forever addicting the American voter to the heroin that is government run health care.

Finally, Rich and his fellows are playing with fire. Do they really want racial, ethnic, and religious motivations to be fundamental to every policy disagreement? That is a road the end of which none of us want to see.

Frank Rich always reminds me of the character Boone in Animal House. Snotty little Jewish guy who hopes that by ingratiating himself with the "Negro" jazz musicians, he may gain some urban hip cool.

But the musicians have no use for the little fellow at all.

"Otis! My Main Man!!" Otis stares back with utter contempt and lack of recognition.
