Some followup to yesterday's Presidential visit to Portsmouth NH:

  • Amy Kane has a pictorial essay, with optional music.

  • Skip at Granite Grok has some video here and here; he describes his Port City experiences here (with also some spot-on comments about the differences between Us and Them). Co-Grokster Doug has a video essaying the astroturfing "paid hacks & union thugs" in attendance.

  • The Union Leader's Drew Cline was absolutely on fire yesterday with one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, and (whoa nellie) eleven posts. But who's counting?

  • Michelle Malkin notes that our courageous President was not afraid to take a hardball question from the 11-year-old daughter of a longtime Obama supporter from Massachusetts.

  • Charlie Arlinghaus suggests a couple reasons why President Obama chose to come to New Hampshire, rather than Maine or Massachusetts. And those reasons are: (1) "Dirigo Choice" in Maine, and "Commonwealth Care" in Massachusetts, both schemes to deliver "coverage" to the uncovered.
    Dirigo Choice and Commonwealth Care were both noble experiments that adopted one approach to try and expand care and control costs. However, they failed. If states really are laboratories of democracy, as we often say, we should look carefully at the results of these experiments. They failed. It would be a shame to recreate them on a national scale.

  • And, oh yeah: Obama lied, and lied, and lied, and lied, and lied, and lied.

  • I'm sure he's being straight with us about the whole "death panel" thing, though.
