"Conservative talk show hosts and columnists have ridiculed an 11-year-old Washington state boy's account of his mother's death as a 'sob story' exploited by the White House and congressional Democrats like a 'kiddie shield' to defend their health care legislation.I almost chuckled (as if there is something funny in this story) at the talk show idiots saying that the family should have found a government program to help her. I am reminded that Eric Cantor said something similar last fall--telling someone they should find a government program to help them even as he does what he can to undermine government programs.
Marcelas Owens, whose mother got sick, lost her job, lost her health insurance and died, said Thursday he's taking the attacks from Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck and Michelle Malkin in stride."
I keep waiting for grownup Republicans to distance themselves from the idiot conservatives. But they don't. Saw today that Virginia's legislature passed a resolution praising Pat Robertson on his 80th birthday. Praising him for his compassion. Now Beck, Malkin and Limbaugh do what they always do--scorched earth tactics and the grownups sit on their hands. The ends of defeating Obama are too dear to recognize the awful means.
