lying sack of dog do........

If the lame stream media upheld their historical roll on reporting the facts instead of serving as a propaganda tool of the marxist, Obama would have resigned by now.

Call it President Obama’s Committee for the Re-Election of the President — a political slush fund at the Health and Human Services Department.

Only this isn’t some little fund from shadowy private sources; this is taxpayer money, redirected to help Obama win another term. A massive amount of it, too —$8.3 billion. Yes, that’s billion, with a B.

Here is how it works.

The most oppressive aspects of the ObamaCare law don’t kick in until after the 2012 election, when the president will no longer be answerable to voters. More “flexibility,” he recently explained to the Russians.

Postponing the pain: The administration is temporarily restoring funds to Medicare Advantage so seniors don’t lose coverage before the election.
But certain voters would surely notice one highly painful part of the law before then — namely, the way it guts the popular Medicare Advantage program.

That's fine, but it merely continues the hemming and hawing we're doing instead of putting a real, EFFECTIVE, single-payer system in place in this country.

Cut the "Defense" budget if you want some cuts. Why do Republicans never talk about that?

Obama wasn't running as a Republican, and had no challengers as far as I know. What stories could the media have presented which would have derailed the campaign of an INCUMBENT President, exactly?

You're so ignorant you're actually funny.:)

Another hysterically ignorant Jimbo cut n' paste which is so full of foolishness it's impossible to take seriously.

One example: what would "flexibility" in the matter of Medicare have to do with any negotiations we're conducting, or might conduct, with the Russians?

Too funny.

Neither you nor your equally worthless buddy "Curtis" have done anything at all to "call out" Pat. You just post nonsensical abuse and pretend it means something.

Others laugh at you. I am.:)
