Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Former head of UK’s socialized medicine agency dies from irony, or socialized medicine ineffeciency…both, actually

Sometimes, the stories just write themselves.  From the UK:

A former NHS director died after waiting for nine months for an operation – at her own hospital.

Margaret Hutchon, a former mayor, had been waiting since last June for a follow-up stomach operation at Broomfield Hospital in Chelmsford, Essex.
But her appointments to go under the knife were cancelled four times and she barely regained consciousness after finally having surgery.

Well, better late than never! Actually…no, “late” and “never” are pretty much the same here, no?

Hey, I’ve got an awesome idea!  How’s about we let our federal government take over our health care system here?  I mean, stuff like this from the UK could never happen here…could it?

Former CIA agent calls out CNN anchor for her Obama love…on the air!

I’m loving this!  Video clip at Newsbusters (which, if you do nothing else, forward to the last part of the clip to see what he says and how she, in a huff, abruptly wraps up the interview).  Partial transcript:

CHRISTINE ROMANS, CNN ANCHOR: I think it’s very clear, Michael Scheuer, that you are no fan of this policy and this administration. I think calling Ambassador Rice crazed is certainly a significant charge.

SCHEUER: Well, I don’t know. I’ve just listened to her. You know, that’s only my impression.

And I have to say, this is not a Democratic problem, this is a Republican problem, too. Both parties love to intervene in other people’s business where there are no U.S. interests at stake and where we spend enormous amounts of money that when we’re nearly bankrupt. That doesn’t seem to be a wise practice of American statesmanship.

ROMANS: And that’s another story, to call the United States bankrupt. The United States is running huge deficits, yes, but the economy and this mission in Libya are two separate issues.

SCHEUER: They’re not separate issues, ma’am. You’re just carrying the water for Mr. Obama.

ROMANS: I’m certainly not carrying anyone’s water. And I will assure you of that. (Oh. Well, I guess her assurance settles THAT issue, doesn’t it? – CL)

Michael Scheuer, thank you so much for your time. You know, we had a very long exhaustive interview. You had plenty of time to give your point on that.

Heh.

I’m sure both of CNN’s viewers felt sorry for Romans.  But nope…no liberal media bias!

Indiana fleebagger Democrat: Me skipping town is akin to a soldier being deployed to Afghanistan

Downright friggin’ shameful.

Just so I’m understanding this here: a cowardly politician who flees the state to keep from doing his taxpayer-funded job is just like a brave soldier being shipped off to a war zone where he/she may not return home alive.  Got it.  Thanks for the clarification, you douchebag.
