67% ‘Angry’ Over Sunday Vote

MSNBC Poll: The House has passed an historic health care overhaul. Are you excited or angry?

What you see there is a screenshot of the MSNBC poll, in case … well, in case it’s not there for much longer.  As of my contribution to the “angry” column in the wee hours of this morning there were 732,569 votes, of which nearly a half-million votes were also in that “angry” column.  These folks live in a bubble, and absent a link on Drudge or anything like that, such a turnout must be a shock to their system.

My favorite comment on the whole thing came from an acquaintance of mine, who summed things up nicely:

Let me get this straight……we’ve passed a health care plan written by a committee whose chairman says he doesn’t understand it, passed by a Congress that hasn’t read it but exempts themselves from it, to be signed by a president that also hasn’t read it and who smokes, with funding administered by a treasury chief who didn’t pay his taxes, all to be overseen by a surgeon general who is obese, and financed by a country that’s broke.

What the hell could possibly go wrong????

Yep.  That about sums it up for me. Meanwhile the talking points for the left portend that the apparent public opposition isn’t really public opposition at all, but is rather a GOP fabrication and the manifestation of an angered minority.  Oh, I don’t think so.

And, in the words of Mike Pence, a minority in Congress plus the American people equals a majority.  Those Democrats are in for an awakening in November.  Now, we just have to find a way to stop this renewed congressional majority from passing comprehensive immigration reform–read: amnesty for illegals–and cap-and-trade.

    And Jeff, what is even more depressing, is that if the 23% that aren’t angry actually knew what was in the bill, most of them would be angry as well!

  2. William A. Rose says:

    Doubtful, Carlyle.

    It’s very difficult to get angry when high.

    Can you make sure that Whats_Up is redirected to this poll.

    I created a little ditty sung to the tune of See You in September by the Tempos;

    I’m not alone in this important fight
    Voting out the rats will be our delight
    Bye Bye – so long – Farewell
    Bye Bye – so long
    See you in November
    See you on November 2
    Here we are
    Voting you a permanent vacation
    In hopes of saving our great nation
    Enjoy your time left but remember
    See you in November
    Bye Bye – so long – Farewell!!!!!!

    Boston Blackie,

    What’s Up might not agree with you and me very often, but he/she is not stupid. He or she will find the poll, and deduce what he or she wants from it. I know you guys like to poke fun of What’s Up, but I happen to enjoy his/her input. I hope you guys understand that and try to treat him/her with respect — after all, he/she is not disrespectful at all, unlike some other lefties who happen to pop up here from time to time.

    That being said… What’s up — neener neener neeeeeeener! Look at the poll! Neener neener neeeeener! (Just kidding)


  7. Boston Blackie says:

    I agree, Jeff, regarding Whats_up, I always enjoy other people’s comments whether I agree or not. She/He had earlier questioned Linda’s comment about 70% of Americans disagreeing with ObamamCare.

  8. Lilly says:

    Jeff- Your link to the poll has 1 too many htt:// in it. I love your friends comment and it should be posted all over the net!

  9. Lilly says:

    Sorry, correction http// needs to be removed.

  10. Jeff Schreiber says:

    Thanks, Lilly. I fixed it.
