There is no coincidence in Barry's world
A girl from Malden asked President Obama a question at Tuesday’s town hall meeting in New Hampshire about the signs outside “saying mean things” about his health care proposal.
Eleven-year-old Julia Hall asked: “How do kids know what is true, and why do people want a new system that can — that help more of us?”
The question opened the door for the president to respond to what he called an “underlying fear” among the public “that people somehow won’t get the care they need.”
The girl later told the Globe that picking the president’s brain was “incredible.”
“It was like a once in a lifetime experience,” she said.
Julia’s mother was an early Obama supporter in Massachusetts during the presidential election, so she had previously met First Lady Michelle Obama, the Obama daughters Sasha and Malia, and Vice President Joe Biden.
“This was my first time meeting Barack Obama, and he’s a very nice man,” Julia said. “I’m glad I voted for him.”
She said Obama won a mock presidential election at the Cheverus School in 2008. And on Tuesday, he approached her after the town meeting.
“He said ‘great question,’” Julia said. “I shook his hand and got his picture.”
Kathleen Manning Hall, Julia’s mother, was shocked when her daughter said she wanted to ask a question. They wrote it down beforehand, and Julia didn’t miss a beat when Obama called on her.
“It was surreal,” said Manning Hall, a coordinator of Massachusetts Women for Obama during the election.
How connected is mom? Jim Hoft at Gateway Pundit has the goods on mom. Of course, you're probably saying "But Thomas, you encourage people to get involved so why are you going after the little girl and her mom?" I'm not going after them. I'm making the point that there is no such thing as coincidence in Barry's world, and Jim Hoft has more on this via HotAirPundit. You know those supporters at his rally yesterday? All the ones applauding and shouting "Yes We Can" at the end of the rally?
They were bussed in, folks.
Remember the comment by Barry yesterday? "I don't want people thinking I just have a bunch of plants in here." Well, guess what? There were plants there. A ton of them. Local affiliate WMUR even caught them in their video report of the rally.
That rally was a sham; a veritable dog and pony show. Michelle refers to it as Obama Kabuki Theater and she's right. Everything about this president is phony. And we have those in Congress accusing the opponents of the health plan of basically being "right-wing rented mobs." Funny, it looks as though the only mobs being "rented" out there are the ones being hired by the president and his cronies, or members of the SEIU.
The opposition to this isn't an organized effort. The Republican party couldn't organize a lemonade stand. This is a grass-roots movement because we're not getting the truth out of Congress. They don't want the truth to get out because if it did we'd see opposition rise in numbers Congress hasn't seen since 2006.
Folks, I had a feeling the Democrats would pull a stunt like this. Call it a gut instinct. I learned a long time ago to never go against my gut because it is my operational antenna. When the recess started we both knew the Democrats would try something to make the public believe there was overwhelming support for this crap sandwich. Problem is the sandwich isn't what the doctor ordered, and no amount of rent-a-mobs bussed into these town halls are going to change anyone's mind.
