Bad move.

Elizabeth O’Bagy, the Syria analyst who was fired after it emerged that she had misrepresented her academic credentials, has found new employment with Sen. John McCain, Foreign Policy’s The Cable reported.

O’Bagy was an analyst for the Washington-based Institute for the Study of War where she advocated for U.S. intervention in Syria. Her work was cited by McCain (R-Ariz.), a leading voice in favor of action in Syria.

But earlier this month, the institute announced that it had “learned and confirmed that, contrary to her representations, Ms. Elizabeth O’Bagy does not in fact have a Ph.D. degree from Georgetown University” and terminated her employment.

“Elizabeth is a talented researcher, and I have been very impressed by her knowledge and analysis in multiple briefings over the last year,” McCain told The Cable in a statement.“I look forward to her joining my office.”

There were only two points made. I refuted them both - "government takeover of healthcare" is an outright lie. Plopping "socialist" on top of the lie is just sweetening a manure pile with candy sprinkles.
If it needs to be further explained why it's an outright lie, and why the term "socialist" is falsely employed, then it only proves why the tactic is so effective at reaching it's target audience.
Please, keep these two examples in mind every time you hear about "low information voters".
This is a great example as to why we shouldn't wonder why the national debate is so absolutely FUBAR.
<edited for space>

We can micro-debate all day long over the words "government takeover" which can imply a hostile coup ---> OR a "government takeover" which in this case meant barely passing a law giving a majority portion of control of healthcare to the federal government; a law which the majority of Americans didn't want and still don't want by using everything within the power of the executive branch and the willingness of the judical branch to help rewrite the law which then made it "legal" to cram it down the throats of a resistant population.

And of course you can say "well, they voted him in" and I can say "true but they're low information, so in reality they didn't know what they were voting for" and so on. But let's not do that. Let's focus on Obama's socialist tendencies which are heartily supported by a good percentage of his upper circles,(unbeknownst to the average Joe Blow average low information democrat voter) because it's not something they probably know a lot about.

Here, chew on this.
"LEAN FORWARD" and "FORWARD" is wording we often see tied to Obama if you read the small print. It's a sub-heading for MSNBC as a matter of fact, flashed to it's TV viewing audience dozens of times a day. Do you think for one minute the average Joe Blow low info democrat knows where that phrase originated?
The word >FORWARD< has a very special meaning in socialist political terminology. It has been used mutiple times as a name for socialist, communist and other left-wing newspapers and publications. The slogan "Forward!" reflected the conviction of European Marxists which would move forward past capitalism and into socialism and although it isn't a secret, it's not common knowledge.
Here. Have another one to add to your wad of cud.
"Redistribution." An Obama term, yes?
It is a direct rewrite of this:
"From each according to his ability, to each according to his need."
You know who said that? Here's a hint. A guy named Groucho had the same last name.
MARX.

Now, you can sputter and spew and and stomp your feet all you want but not everyone out here is ignorant to what Obama's "vision" of America is and if you are one of those who was overly enamoured with the man before you knew what you were getting, then that's your problem. Don't make it mine. You're emotionally invested in the guy, you're angry he's failing and making mistake after mistake and you're taking it out on anyone who's saying, "I told you so."

Post Script:
Btw, his approval ratings are tanking because a sleepy America is finally waking up and you know what they're seeing? A bumbling president who is so FUBAR (to use your term,) he'll negotiate with Assad, he'll negotiate with Putin, he'll negotiate with Iran yet out of the other side of his mouth comes:

"I WON'T NEGOTIATE WITH REPUBLICANS."

Translation from Back-clawing Gibberish to English: "OK, so the government isn't really taking over healthcare like I said, but my cadre doesn't really care about boring facts. So let's don't focus on my words and instead twist some red-flag terms to my ends, denigrate you a little bit, and finish with a thinly-veiled frustration piece about the sour grapes. That's my modus operandi and it works for me."

An Obama term, eh? I'll bet the low information voters who lap up your spew aren't aware of this from perennial Presidential candidate John McCain c.200 (pre Rove-slapdown that turned a conservative maverick into a party-line shill) defending the "redistribution of wealth" concept:

http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2008/10/...

So, you're full of it. Again. Redistribution of wealth is an economic concept that underlies all taxation policy from the beginning of this nation, NOT the re-branded version used so crassly by right-wing shrieks since 2008.

Top 16 Lies About The ACA (Obamacare) promulgated by the opposition as rathed by PolitiFact:

1. Florida Gov. Rick Scott: The health care law rations care, like systems in Canada and Great Britain. False.

2. Sarah Palin: The health care law has "death panels." Pants on Fire.

3. Chain email: Muslims are exempt from the health care law. Pants on Fire.

4. Michele Bachmann: The IRS is going to be "in charge" of "a huge national database" on health care that will include Americans’ "personal, intimate, most close-to-the-vest-secrets. " Pants on Fire.

5. Chain email: Congress is exempt from Obamacare. False.

6. Marco Rubio: Under Obamacare, people who "have a doctor they’ve been seeing for the last 15 or 20 years, they won’t be able to keep going to that doctor." Mostly False.

7. U.S. Rep. C.W. Bill Young: The health care law is a "government takeover" of health care. Pants on Fire.

8. Chain email: "All non-US citizens, illegal or not, will be provided with free health care services." Pants on Fire.

9. Pres. Obama: Because of Obamacare, health care premiums have "gone up slower than any time in the last 50 years." False.

10. Marco Rubio: Under Obamacare, "75 percent of small businesses now say they are going to be forced to either fire workers or cut their hours." Pants on Fire.

11. Chain email: "At age 76 when you most need it, you are not eligible for cancer treatment" under the health law. Pants on Fire.

12. Chain email: The health care law includes "a 3.8% sales tax" on "all real estate transactions." Pants on Fire.

13. Rush Limbaugh: "Obamacare is ... the largest tax increase in the history of the world." Pants on Fire.

14. Chain email: A "hidden" provision in the health care law taxes sporting goods as medical devices. Pants on Fire.

15. Betsy McCaughey, former lt. gov. NY: Obamacare will question your sex life. Pants on Fire.

16. Various rw blogs: An Obamacare provision will allow "forced home inspections" by government agents. Pants on Fire.

If you have to lie to support your position, you admit you don't have a truthful position.

Speaking of Marx, you keep on re-educating the masses, Lyndi. It's your Constitutional right to lie even when the truth would help. Don't for one minute stop to consider this may be another of many reasons the Grand Old Undecideds have turned away en masse.

<quoted text>Ok, this sounds interesting on paper, but could you elaborate on why the uninsured and the state of health care in general are on two different planes? We're having these problems because we are so structured as a society. JMO.
Gonna have to cut this short...
The uninsured are often in that position unrelated to cost. If we restructure, re-think, rework that structure and shave 15% off of the cost, that will mean nothing to the uninsured alien living under the radar, the alcohol or drug addled homeless, the mentally ill, the invincible 25 year old, the dirt poor, the unemployed, the type 1 diabetic, the 19 year old that just "timed out" of the fostercare system, and many more. None of these people, for various reasons, are going to run out and get insured because we just "saved" them a buck. And for that, we'll fine them.
Idiotic.
Cost is much easier to deal with. But the last thing that should be done is always this governments first and only thought. Throw money at the problem. If that doesn't work, throw more.
Double idiotic.

I'm for a tiered flat tax, or a national sales tax with exemptions for life's basic necessities. Food, water, clothing, medical care, electrical power. And donuts. Everybody should pay to play. We can cut the doctors who try to make the system a little more accessible to the average Joe some slack without putting them on welfare.

How much easier would it be if you could have skipped the insurance, skipped the network, and dealt with a family physician that can offer cheap rates due to his lack of administrative, legal and muti-leveled government compliance costs? You know, you could have seen a PA at a CVS minute clinic for $49. No waiting.
My dentist is a native Japanese fellow. A really interesting guy, I like talking with him. He was telling me how he felt the Japanese dentists were better trained than their US counterparts, and that their equiptment was the finest on the planet. But, he adds, their social medicine system has some real drawbacks. He said that when he opened his first practice in an asian community of Los Angeles, a lot of his work consisted of repairing or totally redoing work that had been performed in Japan. He said the dentists were massively overburdened, allowed only 5 miutes or so per patient. So they do what they can do in the time allotted, and send them on their way. He said, from a physicians point of view, nothing beats our system. But he also strongly felt that the uninsured must be taken care of.
Our western Medical industry is corrupted , provide no cures nor preventive medicine and keeps many patient dependent on doctors for long term treatment and patients drug dependent on Pharmas for long term, are really for-profit Industry AS oPPOSE TO Eastern medical treatment one time cure with alternative medicine LIKE HERBS... for certain diseases, for certain diseases but keep many our American patients in the dark about alternative cure s for certian diseases that can be cured with Eastern medicine immediate cures. It's our Westerners believe in overly greed - US medical industry , Insurance and Doctors ...are in collobaration that is for- profit industries . Of course there are difference between Eastern and Western way of treatment and practices...

Of course we know by now that we have to take Lyndi's words with a pillar of salt. If she says the sky is blue you'd do well to get a second opinion. In this case, the President said he would not negotiate with >extremist< Republicans. Big difference.

Ever since the election of 2008, when McConnell stated the primary focus of his party was to defeat Obama, ahead of all else, they have shown that they will allow, and even induce, the country to go through any sort of misery to achieve that end. The current leadership have demonstrated again and again that they are thoroughly immune to the struggles of their constituents. They have completely abdicated the role of governance toward the craven and venal goal of making government appear more dysfunctional than it already is, and to prolong the hardship and uncertainty which lingers like a full diaper on the economy since the meltdown of 2008. In so doing they have completely lost their bearings.

Nothing could put more of an exclamation point on that than the fact that they think the full faith and credit of the United States of America is nothing more than a political >bargaining chip<! That, friends, is a dangerous, and extremist, view. In desperation, they've convinced themselves it's fair game to exploit that fear, merely to advance their agenda against the ACA. If Putin came forward and said he had manufactured a virus that would shut down the US banking system, but he'd give it up if America made certain "concessions", I really don't think we'd encourage the President to negotiate with him. We wouldn't see it as a negotiating chip, but as an act of war.

Yet that is exactly what the lunatic fringe of the Republican Party is threatening. What do you call an entity that exploits fear of calamity to achieve their selfish ends? No, Mr President, you're right. We don't negotiate with terrorists.
