Video: Pop-up Democrats

Now for some lighthearted fun to cleanse the palate before we get stuck on a 50+ comment story concerning the Obama/Goldman/SEC debacle coming soon to a blog post near you.

This video comes courtesy of the NRCC and hits the nail on the head in effectiveness, facts and sheer entertainment value.

    JD before asking me for more links, provide link that proves we financed Iraq’s State health prograram. If you can’t admit your mistate. Gone on long enough.

    The AT&T $1 billion health charge is for ONE QUARTER. Not full year.

    Look to OR, MA, Canada, England, Australia, Cuba, etc for reasons why 4 year wait for full implementation of health care. How little the liberal speaks of the wait. Also obama doesn’t want to be a one term President. As if he has much chance now, though hope is POSSIBLE.

    I have heard faint sounds concerning Obama/Goldman/SEC debacle. A former member of staff now lobbyist. Breaking Barack Hussein Obama campaign promise ? Unpleasantries a possibility. Still the sounds are not completely audible.

    Maybe the near $ million to Barack Hussein Obama to his campaign means nothing. Just as Union campaign help meant nothing in relationship to bailing out the car companies. Such a sweet deal to union members.

    Right ?

    Bill Clinton was lucky to have lots of Democrat Congress members when he went thru his ordeal. All he lost was his law degree for LYING. Hum, next year less Democrats ? The draft dodger was always lucky. Getting Jimmy Carter to pardon him enabled Bill to meet Monica. Making his special history.

    The timing of Goldman/SEC, the lobbyist, 3/5 of Goldman campaign money going to Democrat, to upcoming proposed legislation is PERFECT, meshed together the TIMING is impeccable for a President who has low polls and his agenda in worse shape. RECESSION CAUSED BY GREEDY WALL STREET. Too bad not true for Democrat’s sake. At least not whole story.

    The campaign against Sarah and tea party has failed and both grow stronger.

    Election near.

    All coincidence ?

    Like Nate said:

    “50+ comment story concerning the Obama/Goldman/SEC debacle coming soon to a blog post near you.”


    “Critics Talk Up Obama’s Goldman Sachs Connections”

    “Follow the Men “His administration is infested with them,” writes conservative Michelle Malkin. Some of her examples:”

    “Goldman Sachs partner Gary Gensler is Obama’s Commodity Futures Trading Commission head … Goldman Sachs kept White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel on a $3,000 monthly retainer while he worked as Clinton’s chief fundraiser… Former Goldman Sachs lobbyist Mark Patterson serves under Geithner as his top deputy and overseer of TARP bailout … White House National Economic Council head Larry Summers reaped nearly $2.8 million in speaking fees from many of the major financial institutions and government-bailout recipients he now polices, including JP Morgan Chase, Citigroup, Lehman Brothers, and Goldman Sachs … [Larry] Summers’s [former] boss, then–secretary of the Treasury Robert Rubin, was former co-chairman of … Goldman Sachs.”

    “Or Follow Goldman’s New Lawyer Gawker’s Adrian Chen is one of many to raise an eyebrow at former White House counsel Greg Craig’s defection. In the headline, he jokes, “Goldman Sachs Hoping Old White House Counsel Still Has Obama’s Cell Number.”

    Biden said win in Iraq may be crowning jewel for obama. Too bad win was Bush.

    This could be what obama goes down in history for…

    Much, much more to come…

    Congress blocked hugh amount of money to Acorn after the undercover tapes came out. Courts then ordered money be given to Acorn. Just heard on Van Susteren money is now blocked again… Y E S..

    Means less finagled government money used to elect Democrats.

    DAI seeks a Deputy Chief of Party (DCOP) for an upcoming 4-year USAID-funded primary health care project in Iraq. The purpose of the project is to support the Iraqi Ministry of Health (MoH) achieve its goal of providing better quality health care services. This project will be implemented in partnership with the MoH, have national scope, and will target a minimum of 360 primary care centers. Project activities will be implemented at the central, provincial and clinical levels. The project will support an integrated approach for health systems strengthening and MoH human resources capacity-building with an emphasis on service delivery at primary health clinics.

    Bush administration already funded single payer health care for Iraq….

    Universal care is right for Iraq, Thompson says

    WASHINGTON — Fresh from a two-day weekend visit to Iraq, the Bush administration’s top health-care official defended the $950 million that will be spent to help Iraq establish universal health care.

    Congressional Democrats have criticized the administration for helping Iraq to establish universal health care without doing the same for U.S. citizens.

    Health and Human Services Secretary Tommy Thompson said yesterday there are major differences between the two countries that defy simple comparisons.

    “Even if you don’t have health insurance,” said Thompson, who toured medical facilities in the Iraqi cities of Baghdad and Tikrit on Saturday and Sunday, “you are still taken care of in America. That certainly could be defined as universal coverage. Every American’s health care is far superior to what the health care is in Iraq.”

    Sen. Edward Kennedy of Massachusetts, ranking Democrat on the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, responded yesterday, saying the U.S. system doesn’t sufficiently meet the needs of 44 million uninsured Americans.


    “You’d better sit down, folks.

    Article 31 of the Iraqi Constitution, drafted by your right-wing Bushies in 2005 and ratified by the Iraqi people, includes state-guaranteed (single payer) healthcare for life for every Iraqi citizen.

    Article 31 reads:

    “First: Every citizen has the right to health care. The State shall maintain public health and provide the means of prevention and treatment by building different types of hospitals and health institutions.

    Second: Individuals and entities have the right to build hospitals, clinics,or private health care centers under the supervision of the State, and this shall be regulated by law.”

    We have (thus far) sacrificed more blood to wrest Iraq from tyranny than we lost on 9/11. In addition, according to the Congressional Research Service, as of May 15, 2009 (Report 7-5700/RL33110) we have spent and/or authorized $864 Billion in military operations on Operation Enduring Freedom, which includes Iraq and Afghanistan. The overwhelming majority of those funds have been for the war in Iraq. Additional secret funding has been authorized for intelligence and special operations.

    The total is more than (or, in the worst case, equal to) the funding required to guarantee minimally decent health care here.

    In other words, the most senior members of the Republican establishment – and some Democrats like Max Baucus (D-MT) – have gladly spent more taxpayer funds to ensure health care as a Constitutional right in Iraq than they are willing to spend to give you any level of guaranteed coverage.

    Yes aid was given to extablish health care for Iraq and Iraq now is paying for their care. Not from war money as JD said.

    And your point is ?

    “Iraq allocates 6.9% of budget to healthcare”
    Iraq: Sunday, January 03 – 2010 at 10:57

    I don’t need to sit down. You might want to study the practices of other Mid East Countries and what they do for their citizens. I have. Including Iraq health care under Dictator.

  • Why include health care under dictator?

  • “for an upcoming 4-year USAID-funded primary health care project in Iraq. ”

    Sounds to me that the United States is funding all of the primary care for the next 4 years. Shit I wish the United States would fund MY primary care for the next 4 years. I cant afford my own primary care. Well I guess I could, but A LOT would have to change in my life, I’d have to eat a lot cheaper and get ride of my cable and internet connection, lol

  • I’d probably have to get ride of my car too, but then I wouldn’t be able to get to work. Hrmm, I dunno, at $150 a visit at the incredible price of prescription medications like Nexium, it would likely just not be affordable.

  • Bill Hedges


    Your desire to be right and prove me wrong has clouded your brain. It helps to read my comments and your own link.

    I gave link to Iraq health budget above.

    Now read your own comment:

    “The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) is the United States federal government agency primarily responsible for administering civilian foreign aid.”
    Obviously you don’t ‘get it‘. Civilian foreign aid. More simply… FOREIGN AID.

    Maybe further clarification is needed:

    “The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) is the United States federal government agency primarily responsible for administering civilian foreign aid. President John F. Kennedy created USAID in 1961 by executive order to implement development assistance programs in the areas authorized by the Congress in the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961.[3] An independent federal agency, USAID receives overall foreign policy guidance from the United States Secretary of State and seeks to “extend a helping hand to those people overseas struggling to make a better life, recover from a disaster or striving to live in a free and democratic country…”[4]”

    Well Kendale there are people in the world who CAN’T EAT every meal or cut down their CABLE SERVICE and INTERNET to survive. Who walk because they don’t have car.


    LET’S GET RID OF Foreign Assistance Act of 1961. THAT John F Kennedy is taking away care for you.

    Funny, it doesn’t say it is Iraq’s health care ??? Says FOREIGN AID. Could be many things.

    I hope you ‘GET IT’ now. You say you make high grades in school. Am sure you ‘get it’ now.

  • Bill Hedges

    You do have obama’s health care. It passed.

    Maybe this will soften your heart and get you to appreciate helping others. Interesting Humanitarian help:

    “USAID should be able to issue contracts to Haitian businesses for key services — even those that lost the normally required three years of audited statements in the earthquake.”

  • JD

    Hey Bill. How’s it going. Still trying to defend US money going toward Iraq’s healthcare, eh? Don’t worry… just get some rest. You have lived your life this long with your head in the sand why stop now? Just keep pumping the money into Iraq until we have “victory”.

    no need to repy. I already know you are blind.

  • Bill Hedges


    You thought debt of Clinton and obama as opposed to both Bush’s and Reagan was half as much. You ignored that or incapably of knowing you were comparing 9 years to 20 years.

    I suppose some one with your mentality would think I was wrong.

    We gave more foreign aid to Kenya than Iraq so using your logic we must be paying their health care as well.

  • Bill,

    I don’t need my heart softened to be proud of humanitarian organizations. I am not the one with a beef about fortunate people helping less fortunate people. I am not republican nor conservative. You asked JD for links, and I gave them to you.

    I posted links about the US running primary health care in Iraq. I did not saying anything about any other country. If USAID is giving money to other countries, I have no problem with that. The subject was US and Iraq. I have not looked up any other countries as that was not the topic at hand.

    Didn’t you say that JD likes to turn the subject at hand towards other things when he was wrong. What would you say that you are doing about talking about other countries receiving aid from USAID? Like JD said, no need to respond, I’m sure it will try to drag out some other issue to make others look bad and you look like a God, I wont waste my time responding to it.

    Point was made. Peace.

  • running = funding

  • Bill Hedges

    Point was Iraq health care is in horrible disrepair as is whole Country. Their oil output is far from good. They are paying a good percentage of their income for health care for their people. And been upped this year. Our charity makes it more pliable for the people.

    The amount of foreign aid is much less this year than last for Iraq. Should continue that trend. The list of 20 simple show USAID is not Iraq’s health care for that Country. Not Bush’s program.

    I explained what USAID WAS ALL ABOUT. That is pertinent.

    You said:

    “for an upcoming 4-year USAID-funded primary health care project in Iraq. ”

    Actually the article is NOT ABOUT IRAQ.
