This is must see show on PBS
It was made at the time the first attempt of including anti-abortion provisions in in the HCR was defeated in the Senate.
The Planned Parenthood stooge was brimming with confidence and enthusiasm at te number of women they bamboozled again (after having sold them out in 2008).
Howard Dean is justifying fielding pro-life candidates in 2006 – his famous 50 states strategy did this to us.
“Those candidates are so much better on all the other issues”
(n other words, who cares about women’s rights – we get our numbers)
No mention is made of Tim Kaine – the present anti-choice DNC chairman – and who appointed him.
Bart Stupak is announcing surprised women: “We (pro-life Democrats) have always been there. That, and his readiness to vote for a bill that kills Roe vs Wade.
Interestingly, he resents being called “anti-abortion” “I am pro-life”. Make sure you always use that, or better yet – “anti-choice”.
Watch it. Get angry.
And remember why all women had to jump on Palin and vote for Obama.
The BO spokesperson told Todd that they would use any means necessary to beat Hillary and if women were offended, they would come back to the party during the GE because their plan was to “play the Roe v. Wade card.”
How Planned Parenthood endorsed Obama over Hillary. How Howard Dean stole votes from Hillary and gave them to Obama.
Oh, and vote in the poll as well.
This has proven to be the last straw for B0bot and Dean fan #1 as well
I wish I had not watched NOW tonight on PBS. It increased my disappointment…

Tonight hearing Howard Dean on PBS saying that recruiting those to run who are against abortion is okay as long as they are with us on other issues….was a huge disappointment.
It’s good to know there’s a limit. Of course, most comments attack her for “ideological purity. But that one made my day:
Purity? Go suck on some purity.
Wanna end abortion, deballing would work. How does that sound? Something like forced motherhood?
Nothing says hope and change like promoting Bush holdovers
Obama Chooses Terrible Nominee to Head the DEA
For all the recent rhetoric about changing the focus of our drug policy and moving beyond the war mentality that’s gripped this issue for decades, the White House now plans to promote a Bush Administration holdover who couldn’t more perfectly embody the ugly history we’re all working so hard to put behind us.
Aparently, this is someone with an obsession against medical marijuana – to the point of putting cancer patients in jail.
Just fucking perfect.
I ran out of straws with this guy a long time ago. My damn back is broken.
Hope a Dope strikes again
I bet Rahm is extra happy. Doubleplus happy.
Of course, since he is i charge of nominations. Still, good little catchy new name.
15. it was one thing when he was failing to lead,
but now that obama has turned into ronald reagan, things are getting surreal.
19. Incredibly stupid. All his moves since MA have been in the wrong direction.
He’s not going to be a great president. More like Hoover than even Reagan.
One remembers the last rally
Didn’t I just read,
right here on DU, that “OBAMA SHAMES CENTRISTS” and rallies everyone to opposition?
His walk can’t find his talk.
Hate to say it, told you so right then and there
They are THIS close to “Jr.jr”
36. When DUers said Bush wouldn’t leave office on Jan. 20, 2009, they weren’t kidding.
C’mon! What the hell?
Ok, maybe that’s an overstatement, but look at them with intersecting trajectories : while Hatch seems to be evolving in the right direction,
“I believe there are very outstanding, patriotic gay people who serve in the military and they ought to be given credit for it. And they shouldn’t have to lie about being gay,” Hatch said.
Obama remains set in his ways
“We may disagree about gay marriage,” Mr. Obama said, “but surely we can agree that it is unconscionable to target gays and lesbians for who they are,
The context of this is significant too. Separation of church and state be damned, Obama attended a prayer breakfast with
Barack Obama has drawn stinging criticism for addressing an annual National Prayer Breakfast today organised by a Christian evangelical group whose members include the Ugandan politician behind legislation to execute gay people.
The organisation is headed by Doug Coe, who critics say has praised the organising abilities of Hitler and Osama bin Laden.
Among the Fellowship’s members is David Bahati, a Ugandan MP who introduced legislation that would impose the death penalty on gay men who have sex with a partner under the age of 18
Right on cue, Ann Kornblut writes in Wa Po about Obama’s spirituality: he gets religious messages on his blackberry every morning! And
One senior official described the president as “a prayerful guy.” Another said that Obama has consulted religious leaders less often for his own personal guidance than for help walking through major public decisions — such as during the Afghanistan review process, when he sought advice on the ethical implications of war.
(the “just wars” ideas were picked – not shockingly- from some theologian)
Apologists beam about how Obama lectured the Ugandans (a compndium from B0botland), but the lectured ones left the breakfast without learning their lesson
“The purpose is completely at variance with what the U.S. media have reported,” he said. “It is not a ‘Kill the Gays’ bill. Rather, it is designed to kill the disease that some homosexuals spread through their reckless and irresponsible conduct and lifestyle.”
“If our media were accurately reporting this story,” he said, “reporters would be questioning why the Obama Administration is interfering with Uganda’s right of self-determination and desire to be free of the sexual immorality that has already engulfed the U.S.”
Yeah, it was all worth it, this breakfast prayer!
And how do gays and lesbians feel about this “defense”?
The big news of the day is the markets coming down all over. Wall Street tells it – mentioning European debt crisis
but what have we in Murdoch’s other paper? I guess as long as it’s legally covered, our debt doesn’t exist?
Meanwhile in Massachusets Brown is sworn in and GOP has a 41-59 majority
and Murdoch’s paper takes a swipe at beating a dead horse
