I have a new poll question up:
Despite pro-life protests, do you think mandated abortion coverage will be included in any nationalized healthcare plan Congress passes?
Here are the results of my previous poll. Fox News mopped up, with Bill O'Reilly taking 1st place, Brett Baier 2nd, and Shepard Smith 4th. Katie Couric... not one vote?...
Here were your votes. Click to enlarge to find your own brightly colored flag...
As always, make comments to either this or last week's poll here, not on the Vizu website.
I just want to say a bit eff you to Weasly Waxman. That a-hole voted FOR protections only so he could then vote against them.Posted by: Lauren at August 1, 2009 1:22 PM
To clarify, the jerk voted for a resolution that would have done away with the abortion mandate just so that he could then call for a "reconsideration" and bully some flubby "yes" votes to turn. He got what he needed by buying off one of the dems.Posted by: Lauren at August 1, 2009 1:26 PM
Wow, none of my picks made the 'top 10'.
Bob Schieffer is an 'old school journalist'. He reported on JFK's assasination. I have no idea what his political ideology is because he understands what objectivity is and he knows what bias and advocacy are and he does not confuse them.
But I am a little biased because Bob is a 'Billy Bob' native Texan. I have to keep faith with a kinsman.
Brit Hume seems to lean conservative in his commentary, but when he is doing the work of a journalist he seems to maintain the objectivity of a journalist like Schieffer.
Seth Myers is a fake news guy and even though most of his political humor is directed at conservatives, he is not shy about poking liberals when they expose their hypocrisy.
But I didn't vote for the 'smart' one for president either. Being in the minority is not an indication that you are wrong.

Do you think pbho is more Catholic than the Pope?
I was talking to a fellow who is the president of the owners association at some condos on Turtle Creek in Dallas.
He was lamenting the fact that many of the residents who are in their golden years have lost half of their wealth in the recent downturn in the economy and now some of them are anxious about whether they will have enough money to keep them living in the life style to which they have become accustomed.
In a moment of 'candor' I may regret, I reminded the fellow that the definition of successful estate planning is for the end of your resources to be conincidental with the end of your life.
pbho's health care plan will ensure that happens one way or another. Either you die and your money runs out or your money runs out and you die. But whatever the case the government will take as much of your money as it can in the process.
Better get those living wills in order and make your end of life decisions now.
Obamacare is coming and your 'end' may be sooner than you think!

I voted 'yes'. I can be a bit of a pessimist sometimes, though.Posted by: Edward at August 1, 2009 6:13 PM
where is forced abortion coverage in the bill? ANYONE? CAN SOMEONE PLEASE CITE THE BILL???Posted by: Student at August 2, 2009 9:48 AM
Student, if you have a copy of the bill, read the sections on the health insurance exchange.Posted by: Fed Up at August 2, 2009 12:19 PM
Just thought about the "change you can believe in" President, making sure he pays back the "Dead Babies R Us" crowd, with his first offiical act reversing the Mexico City Policy, never seeing an abortion bill he did not like while in the Illinois state legislature, making sure to vote against BAIPA not once, not twice but three times, (to insure that if a woman wants a dead baby she will get one even if the baby survives a botched abortion). Now ask me whether I think the new healthcare plan will include forced abortion coverage? YES, or as Sarah Palin would say "You betcha". If there is anyway he can get it to his desk he will sign it and be sure to give a pen to PP, NARAL, Emily's List among others from the "Dead Babies R Us" crowd. God help this nation and our President.Posted by: Prolifer L at August 3, 2009 1:13 PM
