A columnist has hit the nail on the head. For all their claims and pretenses to the contrary, the White House and the Democrats in Congress know the opposition to their health care "reform" bill is not phony they know it's a grassroots movement, and not astroturf.
All the proof we need that Obama and Democrats recognize the authenticity of this grass-roots protest is their hysterical reaction to it. They wouldn't be hyperventilating about it if they believed it to be fake, but would use their super-majorities to ram through this bill.If they thought the opposition wasn't real, they would press ahead without a second thought. Their reactions demonstrate that they're lying. And that they're scared.
