Newt Gingrich has piled on to Sarah Palin’s crazy talk about Obamacare death squads. Listen:

“You are asking us to trust the government,” Gingrich declared on ABC’s “This Week.” “You are asking us to decide to believe the government should be trusted.”

It reminds me of PJ O’Rourke’s classic quip: “Republicans are the party who tell us that government can’t do anything right. Every now and then, they run the government to prove their point.”

  1. You crack me up with crazy talk. Palin and Gingrich (not a big fan of) can logically deduce the end results of Obamacare. You logically deduce that paying out money you don’t have, to buy cars that you then destroy, is a successful government program that will bring people who spent money they didn’t have on cars they didn’t need out of financial ruin. I call that “crazy talk”.

  2. Equating Obamacare with the Canadian system might be a logical deduction. Equating with the social engineering of the Third Reich is “crazy talk.”

  3. Here is my new Facebook friend, Sarah Palins, note in Facebook:

    As more Americans delve into the disturbing details of the nationalized health care plan that the current administration is rushing through Congress, our collective jaw is dropping, and we’re saying not just no, but hell no!

    The Democrats promise that a government health care system will reduce the cost of health care, but as the economist Thomas Sowell has pointed out, government health care will not reduce the cost; it will simply refuse to pay the cost. And who will suffer the most when they ration care? The sick, the elderly, and the disabled, of course. The America I know and love is not one in which my parents or my baby with Down Syndrome will have to stand in front of Obama’s “death panel” so his bureaucrats can decide, based on a subjective judgment of their “level of productivity in society,” whether they are worthy of health care. Such a system is downright evil.

    Health care by definition involves life and death decisions. Human rights and human dignity must be at the center of any health care discussion.

    Rep. Michele Bachmann highlighted the Orwellian thinking of the president’s health care advisor, Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the brother of the White House chief of staff, in a floor speech to the House of Representatives. I commend her for being a voice for the most precious members of our society, our children and our seniors.

    We must step up and engage in this most crucial debate. Nationalizing our health care system is a point of no return for government interference in the lives of its citizens. If we go down this path, there will be no turning back. Ronald Reagan once wrote, “Government programs, once launched, never disappear. Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we’ll ever see on this earth.” Let’s stop and think and make our voices heard before it’s too late.

    I especially enjoyed the paragraph describing the social engineering of the Third Reich and equating that with Obama. Obama wants us to look at the context. You might give that a try sometime yourself.

  4. Absolutely! Palin is a Libertarian’s wet dream. Smaller budgets, bigger wardrobes and she quits halfway through. (Clearly, she was a ghost writer. The content is just as loony, but the sentences are at least complete thoughts)
