At least repubs are consistent.
If the president is for it, most of them are against it.
It being anything and everything.

eesh, amazingly typical

BTW, why is the disputed portion of the bill being yanked? probably didn't see that on your "news" sites did ya? nice
You don't believe things written by Palin and Newt themselves and read by Limbaugh himself? Do you understand what a primary source is? Do you know how to open hyperlinks and read or listen to the information presented before commenting?

Well, you have certainly proven one thing: you are in no position to be grading anyone.

My vote for most ignorant post ever. And that's saying a lot.

Try this, I promise it's not a "blog" or even an "article": http://www.gov.state.ak.us/proclamations.php?id=1094

No, my sources were not limited to blogs and "somethingprogress.org." My sources are Rush Limbaugh's own radio advertisement for legalzoom.com, The Rush Limbaugh Show, ABC's show This Week, The Washington Post, Sarah Palin's public statements from her website, as well as her "Healthcare Decisions Day" proclamation from when she was Governor of Alaska and MSNBC.

Furthermore, Limbaugh's public statements and radio advertisement, Gingrich's televised statement and his Washington Post article, and Palin's written statements and Gubernatorial proclamation that I presented in my OP are indisputable facts, not my or anyone else's opinions, as evidenced by my linked sources.

Reading comprehension not your strongsuit? Get a clue.
can you actually see your original post? there are only four links and they are to a blog, view, msnbc article, and a somethingprogressive.org website. When people write papers, they list the references at the bottom and that is what I thought you did. Sorry I completely did not see all your other sources in that posting. I'm guessing that probably has something to do with them not even being there.. yeah, carry on

It's pretty obvious why right-wing 'leaders' such as Palin, Gingrich and Limbaugh have no qualms about blatantly lying to their base. As evidenced by a few of the posts so far in this thread, their base just falls in line when they speak, without utilization of a sinlge critical thinking skill, and without even considering for a moment that maybe they're being lied to.

Rush, Newt and Sarah know that whatever hate- and fear-mongering lies they'd like to spread will be eaten up by their angry base, and regardless of whether or not their leaders' lies and malicious rumors are irrefutably exposed, the ignorant masses don't care...they'll believe anything. Except for MSNBC, that is.

^ See this, kids? This is why we should all go to college.

(ps - I'll help you out. Ever heard of "primary" vs. "secondary" sources? Well, if you click on the links I provided, you'll find videos, transcripts, quotes, etc (ie irrefutable evidence), of Limbaugh, Gingrich and Palin saying/writing/doing the things I outlined in my OP (primary sources) embedded within the commentary (secondary sources). I find it interesting that you make snide comments regarding "when people write papers," when you've clearly never had to reference something in a professional paper you've written. Otherwise, you would be well aware of the facts I have presented to you in this post script.)
