Below are a few lines from Obama's books; In his words:

From Dreams of My Father: "I ceased to advertise my mother's race at the age of 12 or 13, when I began to suspect that by doing so I was ingratiating myself to whites."

From Dreams of My Father : "I found a solace in nursing a pervasive sense of grievance and animosity against my mother's race."

From Dreams of My Father: "It remained necessary to prove which side you were on, to show your loyalty to the black masses, to strike out and name names."

From Dreams of My Father: "I never emulate white men and brown men whose fates didn't speak to my own. It was into my father's image, the black man, son of Africa , that I'd packed all the attributes I sought in myself , the attributes of Martin and Malcolm, DuBois and Mandela."

And FINALLY the Most Damming one of ALL of them!!!

From Audacity of Hope: "I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction."

"Congressional Democrats will soon put forward their legislative proposals for reforming health care. Should they succeed, tens of millions of Americans will potentially be joining a new public insurance program and the federal government will increasingly be involved in treatment decisions.

Not long ago, I would have applauded this type of government expansion. Born and raised in Canada, I once believed that government health care is compassionate and equitable. It is neither.

My views changed in medical school. Yes, everyone in Canada is covered by a "single payer" -- the government. But Canadians wait for practically any procedure or diagnostic test or specialist consultation in the public system.
[Canada's ObamaCare Precedent] Martin Kozlowski

The problems were brought home when a relative had difficulty walking. He was in chronic pain. His doctor suggested a referral to a neurologist; an MRI would need to be done, then possibly a referral to another specialist. The wait would have stretched to roughly a year. If surgery was needed, the wait would be months more. Not wanting to stay confined to his house, he had the surgery done in the U.S., at the Mayo Clinic, and paid for it himself.

Such stories are common. For example, Sylvia de Vries, an Ontario woman, had a 40-pound fluid-filled tumor removed from her abdomen by an American surgeon in 2006. Her Michigan doctor estimated that she was within weeks of dying, but she was still on a wait list for a Canadian specialist.

Indeed, Canada's provincial governments themselves rely on American medicine. Between 2006 and 2008, Ontario sent more than 160 patients to New York and Michigan for emergency neurosurgery -- described by the Globe and Mail newspaper as "broken necks, burst aneurysms and other types of bleeding in or around the brain."

Only half of ER patients are treated in a timely manner by national and international standards, according to a government study. The physician shortage is so severe that some towns hold lotteries, with the winners gaining access to the local doc.

Overall, according to a study published in Lancet Oncology last year, five-year cancer survival rates are higher in the U.S. than those in Canada. Based on data from the Joint Canada/U.S. Survey of Health (done by Statistics Canada and the U.S. National Center for Health Statistics), Americans have greater access to preventive screening tests and have higher treatment rates for chronic illnesses. No wonder: To limit the growth in health spending, governments restrict the supply of health care by rationing it through waiting. The same survey data show, as June and Paul O'Neill note in a paper published in 2007 in the Forum for Health Economics & Policy, that the poor under socialized medicine seem to be less healthy relative to the nonpoor than their American counterparts.

Ironically, as the U.S. is on the verge of rushing toward government health care, Canada is reforming its system in the opposite direction. In 2005, Canada's supreme court struck down key laws in Quebec that established a government monopoly of health services. Claude Castonguay, who headed the Quebec government commission that recommended the creation of its public health-care system in the 1960s, also has second thoughts. Last year, after completing another review, he declared the system in "crisis" and suggested a massive expansion of private services -- even advocating that public hospitals rent facilities to physicians in off-hours.

And the medical establishment? Dr. Brian Day, an orthopedic surgeon, grew increasingly frustrated by government cutbacks that reduced his access to an operating room and increased the number of patients on his hospital waiting list. He built a private hospital in Vancouver in the 1990s. Last year, he completed a term as the president of the Canadian Medical Association and was succeeded by a Quebec radiologist who owns several private clinics.

In Canada, private-sector health care is growing. Dr. Day estimates that 50,000 people are seen at private clinics every year in British Columbia. According to the New York Times, a private clinic opens at a rate of about one a week across the country. Public-private partnerships, once a taboo topic, are embraced by provincial governments.

In the United Kingdom, where socialized medicine was established after World War II through the National Health Service, the present Labour government has introduced a choice in surgeries by allowing patients to choose among facilities, often including private ones. Even in Sweden, the government has turned over services to the private sector.

Americans need to ask a basic question: Why are they rushing into a system of government-dominated health care when the very countries that have experienced it for so long are backing away?"

Dr. Gratzer, a physician, is a senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute.

Whatever the Republicans say or do, with regard to the Sotomayor nomination is of no real consequence. The Republicans shot themselves in the foot with their blind support for George W. Bush, and now they are out of power, can't do anything to stop the Obama train wreck, whether it's this nomination, excessive spending, jeopardizing our national security or health care.

Republicans need to re-group, get out of the business of mixing church with state, get out of women's wombs and start talking to the American people. There's a lot of money in the ranks of the Republicans and a lot to tell. Don't waste money like this administration is doing. Use money wisely. Buy media outlets and start telling the people the truth about this Obama big government takeover of our corporations,our health care, our financial institutions, etc. Obama is making horrendous mistakes but the people aren't allowed to know about them because the media has been compromised. What poses for a media (except for FOX, Lou Dobbs and talk radio)is nothing more than a bunch of silly people swooning over their cult leader, Obama.

As for asking Sotomayor questions: yes, pin her down on never doing again what she did with the New Haven firemen case. It was pure a racial quota decision, no more, no less. It's un-American and needs to stop.

Right now, Obama is showing that he is a Muslim sympathizer. He's throwing Israel under that bus with all the others he threw there including his white grandmother. He is doing us more harm than Sotomayor would do as one of nine. Let's see the Republicans telling the whole story about Obama. That's what an opposition party totally out of power needs to do. Buy TV and radio stations. Start talking. We need to hear the truth for a change.

E-mail from a Friend:

Two striking, Obama-friendly articles in today’s edition: (i) inviting Iranian reps to 4th of July celebrations at US embassies around the world, and (ii) taking stronger stand than previous presidents stand against Israel. I don’t know what the numbers were for the last election, but I suspect that Obama took well over 50 percent of the Jewish vote, and I am sure he will do the same next time around. I see stupid people everywhere, they are all around me, but they don’t know they are stupid.

My Response:

My cardiologist friend is convinced that somewhere along the line the younger Jews did not inherit the smart gene. With the kind of cheerleading Obama gets from the media, most Americans are unable to understand the damage he's doing and how dangerous he is to our economy and our national security. I hate to think of what's happening to our country, but as I've said 30 years of academic brainwashing has now come to fruition.

His Response:

Agreed. Our only hope is that when all of these young people end up unemployed, they will think differently. Re Israel, there is no room for error, as any attack on Israel would wipe it out and make any retribution pointless from the perspective of protecting Israel.

My Response:

The only person in this country who could get away with causing Israel's destruction is Obama. It wouldn't be viewed as his fault no matter what he does. And he really couldn't care less. His sympathies and most of his funding comes from Muslims.

His Response:

You know, I think you are right: The guy could not care less and most likely could get away with it. Truly amazing. I fear that we are becoming anesthetized to the craziness/radicalness of the Obama administration because there has been and will be so much of it – it’s almost becoming “normal.”
