Demonising ‘big oil’ and other energy producers, free market capitalists, and those who oppose his health plan as dishonest and partisan; condemning those who oppose amnesty for illegal aliens as “demagogues”; and labelling those who protest against him like the ‘tea party’ protestors as an angry mob, are among the President’s other perceived offenses.

He complains that the President has targeted and vilified the entire insurance industry for daring to oppose his plan, seeing them as those who would bend or break the truth in order to score political points and stop the country from progressing. He has accused them of “filling the airwaves with deceptive and dishonest ads … designed to mislead the American people.” President Obama is a Stalin and a Hitler rolled into one.

One angry blogger who describes him as a ‘low-down, snake-eyed liar’ accuses him of pounding the pavement for a comprehensive American health plan, whilst behind the scenes he is cutting deals with the pharmaceutical industry…
