Left hits new low of exploitation

  1. I must agree with Beck. If they were so concerned why didn't they pony up the money while the woman was alive? The left loves to use people like this. They did a great job with Cindy Sheehan.

    WASHINGTON — Conservative talk show hosts and columnists have ridiculed an 11-year-old Washington state boy's account of his mother's death as a "sob story" exploited by the White House and congressional Democrats like a "kiddie shield" to defend their health care legislation.
    Limbaugh, Beck and Malkin are skeptical about the story, saying there were other forms of medical help available after Owens' mother, Tifanny, lost her health insurance. They lambasted Democrats for using the story.

    "Now this is unseemly, exploitative, an 11-year-old boy being forced to tell his story all over just to benefit the Democrat Party and Barack Obama ," Limbaugh said on March 12 , according to a transcript his show. "And, I would say this to Marcelas Owens : 'Well, your mom would still have died, because Obamacare doesn't kick in until 2014.'"

    Beck, according to a transcript of his March 15 show, pointed out that Owens' recent trip to Washington was paid for by Healthcare of America, a group that has been lobbying for a health care overhaul.

    "That's the George Soros-funded Obama-approved group fighting for health care," Beck said. "Since all of the groups are so concerned and involved now, may I ask where were you when Marcelas' mother was vomiting blood?"

    Beck, who's from Mount Vernon, Wash. , said there were plenty of programs in Washington state that could have helped Tifanny Owens .

    Malkin dismissed Marcelas Owens as "one of Obama's youngest lobbyists" who has been "goaded by a left-wing activist grandmother," promoted by Murray and has become a regular on the "pro-Obamacare circuit."
     
  2. you think having the right wing attack dogs beat up on an 11 year old kid who lost his mother because she did not have insurance makes the right look good. obviously you aint too bright.

    its almost as bad as this:

  3. I think the radical left should not be exploiting children to push their agenda. When they do, a spade will be called a spade.
     
  4. your crowd should keep in mind that even on the right there are thinking people who are repulsed by that type of behavior. you want more headlines like this.




    Talk radio attacks an 11-year old



    WASHINGTON — Conservative talk show hosts and columnists have ridiculed an 11-year-old Washington state boy's account of his mother's death as a "sob story" exploited by the White House and congressional Democrats like a "kiddie shield" to defend their health care legislation.

    Marcelas Owens, whose mother got sick, lost her job, lost her health insurance and died, said Thursday he's taking the attacks from Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck and Michelle Malkin in stride.

  5. Captain, that is such a disingenuous argument, I don't know where to begin. And so I won't. You know better.
     
  6. I am repulsed by the exploitation of survivors, period. Further, anyone that is so f'n appalled about the alledged lack of health care can go stand in front of any emergency room with their check book open. Save the world on your dime, not mine. I'll decide who gets my favors, thank you very much.
     
  7. A cautionary and sobering tale. A wake-up call for those still sleeping.

    Were you not in favor of health care reform? What happened? As for your check book comment, that's equally disingenuous. Are you also going to decide who "gets your favors" regarding police and firefighting services?
     
  8. agreed, and our resident commie canadian can just write a blank check.
     
  9. Further, anyone that wants their kids f'n educated about can go pound sand. i dont have kids so educate the nations kids on your dime, not mine. I'll decide who gets my favors, thank you very much.


    I am repulsed by the exploitation of terrorists, period. Further, anyone that wants to spend trillions to fight a few towel heads can go stand in front of the pentagon with their check book open. Save the world on your dime, not mine. I'll decide who gets my favors, thank you very much.

    see how it works when we all get to choose what we will pay for. i have a lot of things i hate paying taxes for too.

    Your point is fine, but he's not saying he includes all those other expenditures on his "no way" list... At least, he's not yet saying it.
