Obamacare/TEA Party Round-Up 09-13

Because there is so much analysis on yesterday's HUGE Tea Party in DC which evolved from the big-government over-reach typified by Obamacare, I will be combining the two today.

Roger L. Simon apologizes - America Goes to Washington: I was wrong about the Tea Party Movement. I do not believe it was 2 million folks, I think something in the low-to-mid six figures is more accurate. That said, these people all HAVE JOBS.

Shhh! Quiet down. Thomas Sowell is speaking - Obama's Rhetoric vs. Common Sense
To tell us, with a straight face, that he can insure millions more people without adding to the already skyrocketing deficit, is world-class chutzpa and an insult to anyone's intelligence. To do so after an analysis by the Congressional Budget Office has already showed this to be impossible reveals the depths of moral bankruptcy behind the glittering words.

Quick Impressions of the D.C. 9/12 Protest. From Matt Welch over at Hit & Run.

May God curse the New York Times. Go to their main webpage and see how deep they buried yesterday's astonishing march. ARRGH! Their story is here.

The Washington Post buried it on their website here too. Bastards. Sure, you can click on a picture of their front page with a shot of the protesters and a headline that includes the phrase "Lash Out" but I'm not seen to many obvious links to coverage.

I felt better after reading this piece here. The Tea Party Movement: How We Got Here.

Dems seek to play down role of public option idea

Via Althouse, here's a solid round up of the chatter on yesterday's TEA Party over at memeorandum.

Thousands rally with or against Obama. As president leads a health care rally in Minneapolis, protesters in Washington denounce his policies.

Is There Hope for Health Reform? I hope not. I'd rather see the insurance regulations and tort reform, than an overhaul of our entire healthcare industry.

Public Option Fades From Debate Over Health Care. It's not fading from my mind.

Obama as Tony Soprano, or, flipping America the bird

Obama, Congress easing debate on public option. Basically, they think if they don't talk about it, we'll forget about it. NOT LIKELY. And here.

Snowe Urges Obama to Drop Public Plan to Pass Health Overhaul. What part of fix, not overhaul do you people not understand?

Election trouble brewing for House Dems in 2010. Ya think?
