sounds familiar....

While Lying About Obamacare Mitt Romney Calls President Obama a Dishonest Liar

Mitt Romney resurfaced on Fox News Sunday to call President Obama a dishonest and deceptive liar. The absurdity was compounded by Romney completely lying about the ACA while he attacked the president.

.....Romney went on to lie about the ACA. He broke out the standard Republican talking points that premiums are going through the roof, people can’t keep their doctors, and they can’t keep their policies. Romney called the ACA a government takeover of healthcare, and claimed with that Obamacare is delaying the economic recovery.

Mitt Romney was lying about the ACA’s impact on the economy. Economists on the left and right agree that the ACA is creating jobs. For example, in California the ACA has created over 100,000 jobs and added $4.4 billion to the state’s economy. An October study by the RAND Corporation found that consumer out of pocket expenses are dropping under the ACA.

It is also a lie that millions are losing their policies. A report by Democrats on the House Energy and Commerce Committee found that of the 4.7 million Americans who received cancelation notices, only 10,000 were going to lose their healthcare. That means that 99.8% of those who received cancelation notices will be able to re up with their existing plans, or they will qualify for subsidized coverage.

The math proves Romney wrong. 1.1 million people have signed up for the ACA, while only 10,000 are losing their coverage.

Mitt Romney had the nerve to accuse President Obama of dishonesty, while he told an endless stream of lies about the ACA on Fox News Sunday. Romney is a man with no conscious, who will lie about anything and everything, all the while accusing his opponent of the same dishonesty that comes as easily to him as breathing.

Romney is coming close to venturing into Sarah Palin bitterness territory. It is clear that he feels that he would have won the 2012 election if only he could have lied about people losing their healthcare. Mitt Romney is showing just how unfit he is to be president, and everytime he speaks America should be grateful that they dodged the bullet of a Romney presidency.

Vatican denies pope is open to recognition of gay civil unions

The pope told the leaders of religious orders that a great challenge for the Church would be to reach out to children living in difficult or unorthodox domestic situations.

"The situation in which we live now provides us with new challenges which sometimes are difficult for us to understand," the pope said, according to the transcript of the conversation.

Vatican spokesman Father Federico Lombardi told Vatican Radio that media interpretations were "paradoxical" and a "manipulation" of the pope's words, particularly as some media quoted him as speaking specifically of homosexual unions, which he did not.

Lombardi said the pope was merely "alluding to the suffering of children" and not taking a stand on the political debate in Italy.

The Vatican has stressed the pope's words did not change Church teachings that homosexual tendencies are not sinful but homosexual acts are.

not surprised.

The Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association (CSPOA, for short) is a US wingnut group that believes that sheriffs are "the highest executive authority in a county and therefore constitutionally empowered to be able to keep federal agents out of the county". It promotes this viewpoint as a method of saving the country from tuh overbearing fedrul gubnmint. Their membership consists of a staggering fourteen sheriffs, one county commissioner, and one chief of police, drawn from thirteen states (mostly southern and western). The organization draws much of its philosophy from the similar sovereign citizen and Posse Comitatus movements.

So when the Catholic Church says homosexuality is a sin but the Pope says who is he judge (up to God) then it resonates as being great for gays.

So when Robertson says homosexuality is a sin but it is up to God to judge then it is horrible and GLAAD wets itself over it.

If you play nice, let's discuss this.

This Pope appears more tolerant and focused on poverty than any previous one.

But, he is Pope of the Roman Catholic Church, the original Christian Church, and by far the oldest, founded by the apostle Peter. As such he represents a long history of not allowing homosexuality to be considered. Period.

The Roman Catholic Church can match Pat Robertson on intolerance for gays any day of the week.

I'm more impressed by him obvious love for the poor, following the example of his Papal namesake St. Francis of Assisi.

He will never say anything condoning gay anything, in any way. All he said was to not focus so much on those social issues, while largely ignoring income inequality, poverty, hunger, homelessness, etc.
