The Dangerous Demagoguery Of Ms Pelosi

From the Democrat Congressional Campaign Committee’s website, the Stakeholder:

Speaker Nancy Pelosi sent the following message to DCCC supporters:

Dear Friend,

President Bush must have forgotten the compassionate part of “compassionate conservative” yet again when he vetoed legislation that would have provided health care for 10 million American children.

This was perhaps George Bush’s most heartless act ever — knowing that he could help deliver health care to millions of American children — then, wiping out that hope with a stroke of his veto pen.

We may not be able to change the President’s mind. But, if we work together — make it our mission between now and October 18th — we can find the 15 Republican votes we need to make the President’s cold-hearted veto pen powerless.

The DCCC is already on the airwaves pressuring Republicans to join us in an override. Now, I need your help.

Send a message to the DCCC 15 targets demanding they vote to override the Presidents veto.

George Bush could have done the right thing. Instead, he used his pen to say:

“I forbid 10 million American children from getting the health care coverage they deserve.”

A few weeks ago, I met with a family that understands firsthand the importance of the State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP). Three years ago, several members of the Frost family of Maryland were involved in a horrible automobile accident that left their two children with traumatic brain injuries. Thankfully, these children received the very best care because of SCHIP.

George W. Bush, with his cruel veto pen, pulled the rug out from families such as the Frosts. But with your help, we will make SCHIP the law with or without the President’s support.

Send a message to the DCCC 15 targets demanding they vote to override the President’s veto.

In the next week, we need to find 15 Republicans to switch their votes to pass this vital piece of legislation. If they do not, they will face an unrelenting campaign by the DCCC to make sure their constituents know they do not support healthcare for children.

Send a message to the DCCC 15 targets demanding they vote to override the President’s veto.

It won’t be easy, but with your help, we can give 10 million children the health care coverage they deserve.

Thank you,

Nancy Pelosi

Mind you, this letter is from the highest ranking Democrat in the land.

As stakeholders in our country, we should be appalled at such blatant and shameless and relentless mendacity.

Forget the bogus issue of free health insurance for the kids of middle class families for a moment.

This is the way tyrants are born.

This is how Fidel Castro, Hugo Chavez and indeed every demagogue in history has seized power — by riding the back of the ignorant masses. By appealing to the ignorance and greed.

This is how republics always die.

God help the United States.
