Obama's Death Panels

(Be sure to read other posts on H.R. 3200 health care "reform" by clicking here.)

A perspective on attacks on "death panels" comments, from Lew Rockwell, from's LRC Blog:

"On Morning Joe today, all the Republicans employed by the Obama regime via MSNBC were united with the Dems in chastizing Sarah Palin for her coment that Obamacare would lead to death panels promoting euthanasia and infanticide of the “unfit.” How could the mobs possibly think this? After all, Obama supports federal funding for killing the unborn, and his plan will massively expand this program. He sends his predator drones to kill those unfit for life, according to his calculus, in Afghanistan. He supports a war in Iraq that has taken a million lives. He has ethnically cleansed millions in Pakistan. He is the product of an ideological movement that is pro-euthanasia. Of course, Obamacare will eventuate in killing people. As to Sarah, her smart and courageous comment simply builds her support."

I'm not sure about his last sentence. I am not for or against her, but I think she's better off keeping quiet for a while. There are a lot of people who are against the bill or sections of the bill, who are not ardent Republican or neoconservative supporters, but she is conveniently used by the supporters of the bill to paint the opposition as "right-wing".
