WaPo guide to Thanksgiving dinner ObamaCare talk

Washington Post may as well let the Whitehouse write these things ...oh darn, they do already ...

Can you imagine The Washington Post publishing a guide to how to survive your relatives’ negative questions about the war in Iraq? On Monday, Sarah Kliff of the Post’s Wonkblog posted “A guide to surviving Obamacare debates at Thanksgiving.” That’s assuming you’re getting armed to defend Obamacare just like a good Postie.

“This Thanksgiving, it’s a pretty safe bet that debates over Obamacare will be just about as central as turkey,” Kliff wrote. “As Wonkblog readers hit the road and head home, we didn’t want to leave you totally unprepared.” Don’t let the Ted Cruz-heads ruin your meal:

For example, your parents shouldn’t think Obamacare is finished: “The thing is, the health-care law includes a number of safeguards meant to mitigate the impact of lousy enrollment and make it a bit easier for insurance companies to weather the first few years.”

Bringing in politics at any family gathering is never a good thing.

Its entertaining that things have gotten so bad, the DNC feels they need to get talking points directly into the hands of all drones... the implication being that anyone who doesnt have a carefully worded script to follow is going to look like a moron trying to defend it.

Im amazed that WaPo did such a shit job hiding the fact this came right out of Obamas "non political arm". In the tank till the bitter end.

The blame game is ratcheting up. As Ocare reality hits home it is those nasty repbs fault.

I for one never understood why most people don't want to talk politics. Let's all keep our mouth shut and never have discussions about these issues. Let's just let the tv do the talking and we can make our mind up quitly. Sounds like a great way to keep on the current path of destruction. I have been engaging more and more people recently, and I must say its nice to get real peoples opinions then making my mind up on issues based of what the media thinks on current issues.

Because most people have already made up their minds, and many people get very emotional and hostile when they start talking politics.

It's a big part of the strategy of the powers that be to get everyone so hyper-partisan that no one can discuss politics in polite company. Otherwise we might all get together and stop them from robbing us blind.

There's a reason for that - emotion-baiting propaganda. Both sides do it really well in the US, probably better than most countries. I've been to other places where people don't seem to have nearly the block about discussing politics that they do here.

This forum, as charged as it is most of the time, is still much better than refusing to talk politics unless you're around 100% like-minded individuals - like most people who consider themselves civilized in this country. I can't think of a better formula for perpetuating the status quo.
