From The Politico:
Senior White House adviser David Axelrod and deputy chief of staff Jim Messina told senators to focus on the insured and how they would benefit from “consumer protections” in the overhaul, such as ending the practice of denying insurance based on preexisting conditions and ensuring the continuity of coverage between jobs.
They showed video clips of the confrontational town halls that have dominated the media coverage, and told senators to do more prep work than usual for their public meetings by making sure their own supporters turn out, senators and aides said.
And they screened TV ads and reviewed the various campaigns by critics of the Democratic plan.
“If you get hit, we will punch back twice as hard,” Messina said, according to an official who attended the meeting.
From The Untouchables:
They pull a knife, you pull a gun. He sends one of yours to the hospital, you send one of his to the morgue. That’s the Chicago way!
And now the word is out that the unions will be supplying
thugs members to the town halls. This is what happened yesterday in Tampa, when members of the Service Employees International Union showed up. What a shock: violence erupts. Michelle Malkin has more on SEIU.
I’m beginning to think Michelle Bachmann was correct:

It’s nice to see at least one congressperson with the gonads to just state the truth. Why does it seem like the only politicians that have the gonads to state it the way it really is are the WOMEN? I’d vote for a Palin/Bachmann ticket in a heartbeat in 2012. Do they still have stand up urinals in the men’s room in congressional buildings? Aren’t we men supposed to be wired to be the hunters and protectors? What the hell happened? It seems like the only ones telling us the truth… political careers and personal situations be damned are the women and all I’ve seen is you’ve let the media rip them apart for speaking the truth and loving our country almost unconditionally. I guess it will be up to the women to save our country. I’ll be behind them every step of the way… I guess that’s what men do now; step to the rear when there’s a fight.
Great article, glad to see the general public is now seeing through the Alinsky ways of this administration. And what you see is not what you get, I will take my Chicago pizza stuffed please!!!
