How many times can this guy lie? Well, I guess as long as he gets away with it, as many times as he wants would be the answer.

So now he flat out lies about what other people are saying as well. Big brass ones on this one.

Damn, this (insert your label here) has got to go!

Peace

Today Obama told reporters, “Virtually every Senate Republican voted against the tax cut last week.” Wrong. 20 Republicans voted for the tax cut extension last Thursday night.

Since he has no record run on, he has no choice but to do this as a campaign strategy. Ironically the Internet that got him elected last time will hopefully defeat him this time. It's too easy to compare facts with statements. He's betting his base of illiterate voters will accept his false statements and he is likely right.

The entire reason the Progressives spend so much time pandering to the illiterates is that they know they can be turned into groupies who accept everything they say without question. Without them they cannot get elected and the best way to control them is through fear and lies.

Nothing new about this. He's securing his base knows don't bother to be informed. They just look for the "D" after the name and vote for that name. I could however say the same about the similar base in the Republican Party. They are also groupies who look for the "R".

If people keep getting their news only from the MSM, I have to agree with you. They see one thing on CNN or Fox and don't see what others find out behind the scenes on the net.

The TV then becomes the only truth for many.

I gain zero sense of satisfaction having watched this whole debacle unfold with the Teleprompter King.

It's like he doesn't have an original idea in his. He just does as he's told what to read.

Now Newt is the frontrunner? yikes. Where are some LEADERS??

Let's let some Leadership going without this same divide and conquer 2 party crap. We better get to the middle pretty quick.

I know older repubs and dems getting fed up.

The majority of the republican senators still voted against it...
He said "virtually every republican senator," he didn't say "Every republican senator." That's a pretty weak "lie."
lol, Fox News accusing someone of lying. That's the pot calling the kettle black.

I have never in my life met one Republican who has been a "groupie," and voted for the "R." Of course, that was prior to the freaking neo-con takeover and Sean Hannity types...

You mean like how you got this from Fox News?


When Obama uses the word "Virtually every"...you can't really call that a "lie". Maybe an exageration...but not a "lie".

And your source is quoting the Fox News report.

Do you honestly not see this?

I'm talking about the Democratic base that does not watch or read any news. They vote only because it is a Democrat and most could not even tell you who their own Senator or Representative is. They don't even know the issues or anything about the person they vote for. They simply vote based on Party and that is what I mean by illiterates. I'd use the word ignorant which is likely more descriptive but people seem to not understand that word these days.

I see the Right as being no better with a group of illiterates who do the same and vote based on Party not having a clue what is going on. I'm equal opportunity on that issue.

With the Left however it is somewhat different as they have complete control of the schools and unions. Ironically even though they have that control, true Progressives are still a small minority even of the Democratic Party. They just happen to be in control of that Party at the moment.

I expect Obama will tell many whoppers as the election gets closer. They are for internal consumption by people who he knows will vote for him without questioning anything he says. He knows they won't bother to check him out on what he says. He relies on their ignorance of the topic. It makes no difference people who are informed will know he is lying and why would he even care about that. Cheating and Lying are second nature to him. He see's himself as so superior that he is doing us all a favor when he lies. You about have to be a genuine sociopath to even run for high office in the first place.

It's always been that way. Many simply vote for whoever their Parents vote for and don't consider it beyond that. They were born into a Republican family and that's how they vote. Most can't be bothered to interrupt their social lives by actually knowing anything about the people they vote for. That much is common to both Parties.

Part of waking up in my opinion is realizing both Parties are genuinely corrupt and in many cases in collusion with each other. Much of it is an act I believe.

We the People do have the power to fix this for now, but only if we lay partisanship aside and work together. They know that will never happen. They work hard at keeping us at each others throats.

Being an Independent in the truest sense, I see proof all the time. Depending on the discussion it's assumed I'm a Democrat or a Republican depending on the topic. If I criticize Bush I get yeah but what about Obama, if I criticize Obama, I get yeah but what about Bush. As long as it's that way and they keep people brainwashed into hating each other, nothing will get fixed. You can't have a meaningful conversation or debate with a person who is a partisan and can't see beyond that.
