But that's not the theme of Derpy's rant. He presents nothing but the usual laundry list of Fox News talking points. For example, no mention is made whatsoever of Iraq or Afghanistan - probably because those expenditures can't be blamed on Democrats. And in the end it all comes down to "why would anyone vote for Obama?" This is a far cry from "both sides are equally unrealistic" or "both sides suck". Uh, no. Perhaps I should have said "only the extremely affluent aren't facing bankruptcy in the event that they get sick"? Well, that's nice. Guess what? In the real world, single-payer isn't going to happen. Thus we are faced with the choice between a so-called "lousy, ramshackle plan" and doing absolutely nothing at all about the problem. Access to health care is not "crap". In fact, in every other advanced country in the entire world, it's considered a right. America stands alone. Gotta love rugged individualism, right? Well, yes, and that's the point. Barack Obama is indeed not serious about the all-important task of kicking the **** out of the lower and middle classes. That's why teabaggers don't find him acceptable. He's looking out for the 99%, not the 1%. Yeah, just keep telling yourself that. You're not fooling anyone. Telling uninsured people with cancer to go **** themselves can hardly be called a position of moral superiority. Republicans are all about protecting the rich from higher taxes. Despite their rhetoric they care about nothing else. They've proven at every turn that they'd rather crash the economy than see their backers pay even slightly higher tax rates. But feel free to continue living under a delusion, or trying to delude others, or whatever it is you're doing.
