GOP and Romney invent their own reality

The Romney campaign repeats its lies no matter how many times they're disproven

A half-dozen fact-checking organizations and websites have refuted Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan's claims that President Obama removed the work requirement from the welfare law and will cut Medicare benefits by $716 billion.

The New York Times even reported that Mr. Romney has been "falsely charging" President Obama with removing the work requirement. USA Today calls the Romney campaign's claim that Mr. Obama has "funneled" money out of Medicare to pay for the federal health care law a "false line of attack" that's directly contradicted by Medicare's chief actuary. "Medicare's money isn't being taken away," the paper concludes.

Romney - Ryan are enlarging the tag "Lying-neo-conservatives " to aply to all national candidates as in "LYING REPUBLICANS."

When you build a campaign on a foundation of lies, it is only as strong as the stupidest American who will swallow the lies, with the minndlessnes of a FOXLIES watcher; or the bitter gaul of a racist.

Mr. Bill invents stories. They seem like children's stories for his democratic constituency. No wonder Obama is slipping in the polls. Democrats are insulted by childish propaganda pushed on them by the likes of the amateur propagandist like Mr. Bill. I know because my lifelong democrat friend told me so. He's sick of being spoken to like a child. That's why Chris Christie won NJ. He spoke to the democrats like the grown ups that he respects them as. Not
Mr. Bill and Obama. They think all democrats are like stupid children and treat them as such. Look at how Biden talks to democrats, ya'll. It's embarrassing for them after awhile. They know they are being lied to and won't take it anymore. Just look at NJ. It was thought impossible for a republican to win there, but Chris Christie told everyone how things are. And he won. He treated us with the respect that grown ups deserve. Not so with Obama, Michelle and Mr. Bill. They still treat democrats like little stupid children.

Duh !

Which was the Dem lie ?

Gov. O'Malley...no we aren't doing better.

Gov. O'Mallley Yes we are doing better.( 24 hours later)

I've got no problem with Neo-Conservative especially from a Neo-Marxist.

No, no, goofball.

Lying neo-conservatives are failed-Marxists, and not neo-Marxists. Learn your own history.

This is all apart of the Presidential Reality Show. Wake up people, start to see it for what it truly is. A scripted reality show.

I said in a previous post that the Rominee could have basically sealed this thing already with his RNC speech. But he did not mention one thing on the following:

1. Extension of the Patriot Act
2. Sections 1021-1023 of the NDAA
3. Fast & Furious
4. The DOJ dropping all charges against Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan for fraud and manipulation
5. The illegal unconstitutional wars in Yemen, Pakistan, Libya, Syria (funding and arming), and several countries in Africa.

But no, instead of mentioning any of those and really going after Obama, he talked about his family, religion, and more importantly himself.

He mentioned Obamacare (which is Romneycare from Mass). But the whole time on the campaign trail for the R's he said he wanted to repeal it. Notice in his speech he said that he wanted to repeal and replace?

Welcome in the new boss, same as the old boss.

Hmmm- Medicare.... Sure, Obama is not taking the money out of services, just cutting the already low payments Docs get- even lower. It stands to reason that more docs re going to refuse to take Medicare, thus impacting- you guessed it- services.

The Romney/Ryan plan makes NO changes to Medicare until 2023, when a new generation is eligible for the entitlement. It simply gives an option to beneficiaries to a) purchase a standard Medicare plan ( most people forget that there is a cost associated with the benefit even now- just ask those AARP suckers); or b) purchase a private insurance OPTION.

So just to recap. Obama plan has the potential to cut services ( see explanation above) NOW; Romney/Ryan plan cuts NO benefits now and gives CHOICES to Seniors in the future.

Now about those 4.5 million new jobs you hear about- according to CNN, that number is a little misleading. At the peak of the recession I Jan 2010, the US had lost 8.8 million jobs. Where the numbers get tricky is where the non- farm payroll levels were in Jan 2009- 111 million. In Jan 2010 that number had dropped to around 106 million. As of last month the umber was at 111.6 million. So yes, 4.5 million jobs have indeed been created, but that is only a net gain for the Obama administration of around 300,000 jobs. http://www.cnn.com/2012/09/05/politics/fact-c...

A very poor showing

Someone needs to check these "Fact Checkers" they are not doing a very good job.

Obama, on TV no less, admitted the $716B transfer from Medicare to Obamacare. I've seen the clip, I've heard the words come out of his mouth! It's true, no matter how compliant MSM is with the lies of Obama and his minions, IT'S ON VIDEO FOLKS!

As to the work requirement for welfare, Obama DID give states leeway to redefine what constituted "Work" to give them more ability to sign up more people for welfare. That's easy to find on line, just check out the website.

The auto plant that Obama said he would keep open or retool to make "green" cars was not formally closed in 2008 it was IDLED, according to it's own website, and wasn't officially closed until the summer of 2009. It still could be retooled like Obama said he would do, if Obama wanted to.

Now, Lets talk about Debbie Wasserman-Schultz and her BIG LIES, first she attributes a false comment to the Israel Ambassador, then she goes on National TV and lies about what she said, denying she ever misquoted him. Is she BRAIN DEAD? She's on video saying the original falsehood and on video again repeating the lie. Is she even capable of telling the truth? Obama took credit for the great economy of Ohio, due entirely to the fact that Ohio is run now by a REPUBLICAN governor.
