Right wing republicans are making ridiculous allegations against the President's health care reform, like "it's going to kill my grandma!". And I thought how similar that is to the attention seeking methods of the Westboro Baptist Church.



You Know the Wesrboro Baptist Church says "you will eat your babies" and Republicans say "Obama will kill your grandmother". One is a lunatic fringe group, and the other is a mainstream political party?

So with these republican deathers, it seems like they are little more then attention seeking distractions that need to be ignored like the Westboro Baptist Church. Or perhaps even given a time out...

Don't be an idiot.

I am a Republican and I DESPISE, let me repeat DESPISE the Westboro people.

There are very few people living in this country as vile, disgusting, depraved, sick, and ignorant as the Westboro group.

Is that clear enough for you?

You don't see democrats making ridiculous statements like that. Republicans you do, and in the mainstream. I think he should try running as a Republican. He seems to already agree with your fundamental points....



see the antichrist sign to the left?

As a liberal Democrat I think its a bit unfair to lump right wing Republicans into the Westboro category. Some of them on the fringe (the Birther movement,) perhaps, but just because they speak the loudest doesn't mean they speak for all Republicans or conservatives. With that being said I do find it a bit sad the the fringe elements seem to be taking over the discourse of the Republican Party and your every day Republican or conservative, who may have disagreements but favor an honest debate are being tossed to the side.

I love it! Another liberal must face what is attracted to their party. Recently some lefty posted a video of some toothless hillibilly types and tried to pass them off as Republicans when in fact they love and voted for Hillery.

The freaks always gravitate to the democrats.
