(Makestickers.com) Well, well, well. After all that Doing It For The Children hyperventilation, after all the finger-pointing and foot-stomping, after all the kiddie human shield-waving, after all the teeth-gnashing vows not to surrender on their massive S-CHIP entitlement expansion, the Democrat have, yes, surrendered. Surrendered. You will remember that Harry Reid and the desperate, Do-Nothing […]
(Makestickers.com) The Associated Press assigns BDS-infected reporter Jennifer Loven to cover the president’s second veto of the massive S-CHIP entitlement expansion tonight, and she piles on the bias thick–starting with the first paragraph: President Bush vetoed legislation Wednesday that would have expanded government-provided health insurance for children, his second slap-down of a bipartisan effort in […]
Well, this is fascinating. Two Boston Globe reporters hung out on Mitt Romney’s lawn last week and other Globe staffers have been scoping out the lawn over the last two months: Standing on stage at a Republican debate on the Gulf Coast of Florida last week, Mitt Romney repeatedly lashed out at rival Rudy Giuliani […]
Robert Rector at the Heritage Foundation reports that the S-CHIP bill still pending in Congress continues to provide loopholes to illegal aliens to obtain access to Medicaid and undermines welfare eligibility rules for legal immigrants. Bottom line: H.R. 3963 fails to adequately prevent abuse of taxpayer funds. It increases opportunities for illegal immigrants to obtain […]
Who cares about the children?
I’ve said it all along: The Democrats’ massive S-CHIP expansion is a Trojan Horse for Hillarycare. Now, we get it straight from the horse’s mouth. A Hill source sends an audio clip of former Iowa Dem. Governor Tom Vilsack at Drake University on Nov. 16 describing how S-CHIP will help achieve those universal entitlement ends: […]
Measure 50 goes down.
Dragging out the kiddie human shields again.
This is high-larious. The Hill reports on an internal Democrat strategy memo complaining that the Democrat Party is too hyper-rational and lacks emotional appeal. For real. They think “SUFFER THE LITTLE CHILLLLLDREN!” is too bland and accountant-like: Democrats are losing the battle for voters’ hearts because the party’s message lacks emotional appeal, according to a […]
Playing fire with S-CHIP; Update: Pete Stark takes the floor!; Update: A vote against S-CHIP is a vote against Jesus!; Update: S-CHIP passes under new veto threat
Question the timing.
Big Meanie Mark Steyn delivers a Sunday barbecue of the Democrats’ sunk S-CHIP and the real war on children: Last Thursday, Nancy Pelosi, as is the fashion, used the phrase “the children” like some twitchy verbal tic, a kind of Democrat Tourette’s syndrome: “This is a discussion about America’s children … We could establish ourselves […]
House showdown: The S-CHIP veto override vote; Update: Crazy Pete Stark accuses President Bush of blowing Iraqis and American troops up “for his amusement;” Update: 1:15pm Eastern Veto override fails;Update: MSM ignores Stark remarks
Update 3:20pm Eastern. See my new post on Pete StarkRavingMad. These people can’t contain themselves. And let’s stop the delusion that the Starks are the fringe. They are the center of the nutroots-i-fied Democrat Party. Shocker! Not a word in the NYTimes coverage of the override vote failure about Stark’s remarks. Nothing in the latest […]
S-CHIP Watch: Newsweek goes nutroots, Pelosi blames “hate radio,” Mikulski barks at Rush; Update: Bush addresses S-CHIP, Dems trot out…singer Paul Simon; Update: MoveOn cashes in its S-CHIP; Update: House Democrats warm up; Update: Republicans to introduce S-CHIP alternative
S-CHIP and the Democrats’ human shield campaign; Update: The Dems choose another shield; Update: Olbermann coaxes Frost family to display children’s accident photos; Update: New poll results show a majority of Americans are “meanies,” too; Update: The Wilkersons made a choice
Update 10:30am Eastern. “Meanie” Mark Hemingway reports on the Democrats’ new poster family, the Wilkersons: While USAction and a labyrinthine maze of leftist activist groups prepare to rally around images of Tampa Bay’s Most Photogenic Baby holding up a crayon sign that says “Don’t Veto Me,” Dara and Brian Wilkerson are real poster children — […]
Driving the point home.
Democrat poster-child abuse, the nutroots’ pushback, and the continued campaign to silence the Right
Update 1:40pm Eastern. Bruce Kesler discovers that, despite living in one of the highest cost areas of the U.S., San Diego, owning a modest house in a middle-class neighborhood, with substantial equity, he qualifies for S-CHIP. He says no thanks: What could we do with an extra $10,000 a year, if we didn’t have to […]
The most buzzworthy story on the right side of the blogosphere this weekend concerned young Graeme Frost, the 12-year-old child severely injured in a terrible car accident that also left his sister with permanent disabilities. Graeme Frost was propped up by Democrats desperate to avert the president’s veto of S-CHIP legislation, which would have massively […]
