Doesn't THAT count for anything?
I still remember when Hillary made Chocolate Chip Cookies on national television to get her husband Bubba elected. It apparently worked.
This time around, becoming a grandmother just before her campaign turns to full swing will surely excite the Jerry Springer crowd to vote for her.
"banged up"??? What the hell is this moran talking about?

That and picking up dogshit. You think Obama's the best President ever. And maybe he could have been, if it wasn't for George W. Bush. Poor Barry, he was born at the wrong time, in the wrong country, with the wrong philosophy.

<quoted text>Well let's see about your source.
Your author.....
"I am senior fellow for environment policy at the Heartland Institute and managing editor of Environment & Climate News. I write about energy and environment issues, frequently focusing on global warming. I have presented environmental analysis on CNN, CNN Headline News, CBS Evening News, MSNBC, Fox News Channel, and several national radio programs. My environmental analysis has been published in virtually every major newspaper in the United States. I studied atmospheric science and majored in government at Dartmouth College. I obtained my Juris Doctorate from Syracuse University.
The author is a Forbes contributor. The opinions expressed are those of the writer."
Oh, and the Heartland Institute has a link to plethora of Tea Party options to choose from.
Good luck on promoting your version of acceptable 'facts.'
How about Science Daily? I was going to post the link from NASA, but it was a long pdf file.

Clinton Library Releases Memo Explaining How Republicans Manipulate the Media With Lies

The memo was written before Fox News was born, and years before the Internet became the dominant force that it is today.

Not surprisingly, the basics of how the infestation works still hold up today. The conservative think tanks are still out there ginning up their conspiracy theories and ideological justifications. There are still conservative newspapers that happily reprint this stuff. International conservative tabloids still try to spread stories, and members of congress like Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) still try to give the conspiracies legitimacy through show hearings.

The difference, today, is that the Internet has replaced newspapers, and talk radio along with Fox News has replaced newsletters. Part of the purpose of Fox News is to take the right’s conspiracies and push them into the mainstream press. Advances in technology have made the process of smearing a Democratic president much faster, but the dynamic is basically the same.

The goal is to manipulate the media into treating bogus conspiracies like legitimate news stories. One of the most recent examples of this effort is the IRS scandal. Republicans took advantage of the laziness of the mainstream press to spread the conspiracy theory that was centered around President Obama using the IRS to target conservatives. The truth is that there is no evidence that Obama had anything to do what was going on at the IRS and that the agency itself targeted both liberals and conservatives.

This nearly 20 year old memo from the Clinton White House explains why Darrell Issa keeps holding so many hearings on the ACA, IRS, and Benghazi. Issa is trying to lift those conspiracies to the realm of legitimate news, and infect the rest of the country with bogus conspiracy theories, by giving them the congressional hearing treatment.

The game is the same as when Bill Clinton was president, and this memo provides some great insight into how Republicans take conspiracy theories and get the media to turn them into legitimate news.

On Friday, the Liar & Thief claimed Obamacare is a "success"/

He was counting kids on parents policies in his lie.

He was asked how many paid and would not answer...

1 - Obama touted 8 million UCA policies

2 - 6 million people had their policies cancelled due to the Democrats scam.

The IRS scandal is just a witch hunt!

Benghazi never happened.

Obama: We will get to the bottom of this!

Never happened.

Obama just before the liar was reelected: Al Qaeda has been decimated! Mission Accomplished!

Truth:

Is there any accountability in American politics for being completely wrong? Is there any cost to those who say things that turn out not to be true and then, when their fabrications or false predictions are exposed, calmly move on to concocting new claims as if they had never made the old ones?
The fact that the Affordable Care Act (ACA) hit its original goal this week of signing up more than 7 million people through its insurance exchanges ought to be a moment of truth — literally as well as figuratively. It ought to give everyone, particularly members of the news media, pause over how reckless the opponents of change have been in making instant judgments and outlandish charges.

When the health-care Web site went haywire last fall, conservatives were absolutely certain this technological failure meant that the entire reform effort was doomed. If you doubt this, try a Google search keyed to that period relating the word “doomed” to the health-care law.
It should be said that the general public was much wiser. A CNN poll in November that Post blogger Greg Sargent highlighted at the time found a majority (54 percent to 45 percent) saying that the problems facing the law “will eventually be solved.” Political moderates took this view by 55 percent to 43&#8201;percent, independents by 50 percent to 48 percent. Only Republicans — by a whopping 72 percent to 27 percent — and conservatives (by 66 percent to 33&#8201;percent) thought the law could never be fixed.
Their representatives in Washington, moderate conservatives as well as the tea party’s loyalists, followed the base’s lead. In mid-November, for example, Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio) told Fox News flatly that the law is “destined to fail,”“fundamentally flawed” and “not ready for prime time.” House Speaker John Boehner predicted dire outcomes before the Web site fiasco. He repeatedly insisted, as he did in July, that “even the Obama administration knows the ‘train wreck’ will only get worse.”
