This is nonsense.

Because I want to assume the best, and not the worst, I’m going to assume that the police officer, who would not allow people to converse and who apparently did not want the vid-taker to discuss Obamacare with anyone, was simply trying to make sure nothing got out of control.
What I don’t understand is why conversation between peaceable people should require a police presence? Clearly these ladies were no threat to anyone and were not looking for trouble. I assume the ACORN people were also no threat to anyone and not looking for trouble. We can assume that all were there in good faith, can we not?
Interesting to see one woman tell the vid-taker that if the police officer says something to her she has to listen to him. Lots of stink about that over in Cambridge a few weeks ago, with Obama saying the police acted “stupidly” and many reasonably questioning at what point an officer has a reason to enforce his will.
Things are getting interesting, and it’s only the first week in August. Our Summer temperatures may be cooler, but I have a feeling the month is going to be exceedingly hot.
You know who could put a stop to the bad feelings arising in this country? President Obama, who is supposed to be the leadership. Just as Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton backed off when they realized America was not into having their Healthcare taken over by the government, Obama could say, “you know, I’m moving kind of fast here, maybe we’ll shelve this for a while and concentrate more on putting people back to work, which is urgent.”
Such a move would be an instant assist to the nation Obama is supposed to be passionate about protecting, preserving and above-all SERVING. It would also mean instant restoration of his fast-fading credibility. Think he’ll do it? Nah.
Let’s see, I think I’ll put this into the categories of “Health Care,” “Erosion of Rights” and “Free Speech.” I’ll leave out the “Fascism in America.” For now, anyway.
