Why did the media let Obama get away with the lie that, " if you like your insurance you will get to keep it."?

There are lies the media have allowed Obama to get away with that are too numerous to list here.

How biased can you be? "...does this bother you?" (Don't YOU find that a question that pre-conditions a certain response, Mr. Roy?)

"How would you (Gov. Perry) assure universal coverage in your state?" (What if He/We deem that provision of Health Insurance is not the job of the government? News Flash-cradle to grave care is NOT the responsiblity of the government. It seldom works well anywhere, but instead yields rationing with the chief driver of the delivery of care being government bureaucracy.

Asking Ron Paul about constitutionality? Come on! The idea of provision of any entitlements is simply not in the costitution. Period. The Constitution, by its very nature allows for interpretation by the courts. The travesty here is that like many left-wing arguments, the rational is not constitutional at all, but based upon an ever expanding philosophical viewpoint that yields to ever greater expansion of government and its powers. The dirty corollary here is that it yields increased government intrusion into civil liberties, an unrealistic expectation that individual felt needs be provided for in some way by the government. The taxpayer (naturally, the top 10 % of American earners who provide 70% of all tax revenue) has the "outside" role of footing the bill under this obtuse plan for redistribution of wealth.

Your questions offend me as they are ridiculously biased.

The media is trying to redirect attention and questions away from the one thing that matters and Obama's weakest area. The economy.

Asking these ridiculous questions does nothing to inform prospective voters or advance the debate over sound fiscal policy.

The WashPost and the media by in large want Obama re-elected and as has been demonstrated, have no compunction about telling lies to make it a reality.

The GOP/TeaParty are not afraid that national health care will fail, they are afraid it will be a success.

If we ever get total national health care in America, it will be decades before another republican will be elected to a national office. Even Michele Bachmann admitted that.

It will succeed in destroying the greatest Heath care system in the world.
It will succeed in forcing everyone into government controlled medicine, where some bureaucrat will decide if the financial cost of your medical treatment is financially worth the cost and if not it's end of life counselling for you.

Next thing you know the state will require you to have mandatory car insurance. Oops that's already a law.

Amen to that - and no lie is too egregious for Republicans to tell to try to mislead people.
