We Knew This was Coming

This will be quick as it is late and we just finished canning 52 pints of salsa. But the Watchman had to publish this observation: We knew this was coming. What am I talking about, you ask? Representative Rangle's claim that all the resistance to Obamacare is about racism. Check out the Fox News story, Rangle: "Prejudice a Factor"

When liberals, and especially Black liberals, can't win a debate on the grounds of fact and logic, they pull out the race card. Indeed, this was Obama's standard ploy when he would get into trouble during the election. And like the kid caught with his hand in the cookie jar, he'd look around all wide-eyed innocent like and say, "Who me?? No it was Bill who threw out the card."

The marxist-socialists have been totally floored by the reaction to Obamacare. Never in their wildest dreams after such a stunning election would they imagined citizens rising up in such loud opposition to the proposal for government run health care. They were so dreamily led along by the President's own euphoric rhetoric they totally miss-read their fellow Americans.

So they tried to win the argument by illogical, obfuscation, and misrepresentation of facts within the legislation (which they hadn't even read!!). When that didn't work they switched emphasis, it's about health insurance reform not health care. When that didn't work, they tried the do it for Teddy "The Gipper" Kennedy approach. When folks found that obscene to use the dead in such an overt political power grab, they now have fallen back on the tried and true guilt trip: We're all a bunch of white supremest after all. We now will let this monstrosity of a bill go into law because we all feel guilty of some kind of subconscious repressed prejuice that continues to burn in our white souls.

Well here is one person who isn't fooled by that old song. If you will take a few moments to read my blogs on the subject, as well as references to other articles on opposition to Obamacare, you will not find one mention of our President's race. I and those who oppose Obamacare do so, not because the color of his skin, but rather because the conduct of his character does not marry up with our values, of liberty and freedom from government intrusion into one of the most intimate aspects of human life, an individual's personal health.

Message to Congressman Rangle: Charlie, this is 2009 and we're in the post-racial period, so can that tired old tripe. We're looking for the real deal, and buddy, you ain't it.
