I don’t mind that Obama is off-message. His inability to simply and clearly communicate the idea behind his health care reform plan tells me it’s rotten and I don’t need it. But yet, he is going to pull out his roving gang of thugs and cram it down my Democratic throat anyway. If that isn’t bad enough, I am being spammed in my inbox by forwards of David Axelrod’s brand of the truth (which was debunked by a guy at the Huffington Post, no less). He was kinder and gentler to David than I am. I don’t like that guy. And I don’t like his boss neither. (deliberately ungrammatical). I’m sick of being pushed into money grabs that hurt our country. CALL OFF THE THUGS, PREZ.
