Obama-Lama-Demagogues



Obama is desperate to cling to power, and he's resorting to bald-faced lies to do it.







From Time Magazine:
That new Priorities USA ad which effectively blames Mitt Romney for a woman’s cancer death is a strange beast. It is at once the most dishonest and substantive ad of the summer.
Narrowly judged, the ad is scurrilous. It implies that a Romney-led takeover of GST Steel company in Missouri by Bain Capital left a GST worker, Joe Soptic, and his wife, Ilyana, without health insurance; that she delayed seeing a doctor for cost reasons; and that she received a fatally late diagnosis as a result. But a CNN fact-check severely undermines this narrative. (Dishonest but Important)
Despite the ad’s bald-faced lies that the liberal author acknowledges, he still likes it…
But at least a story like the Soptics’ illuminates the kind of policy choices that lie at the heart of this election–certainly more so than advertisements about Romney’s foreign assets, or a distorted quote from the president.
Ahhh... There it is.  We stung their messiah with the truth.  Those damned conservatives replayed Obama’s words, in context, showing him mocking business owner for having the temerity to think that they were “so smart,” and to dare to say they “work hard.” Obama’s gargoyles in the press hate us for pointing out that his “You didn’t build that” comment is false even if he were talking about roads and bridges, because business owners are revenue generators, much more so than that crowd he was preaching to, whose resentful hooting egged Obama on to Chavez-esque heights during that infamous tirade.

Fear and Smear is All Obama has Left

So here is where we’re at this campaign season. Obama has no accomplishments to run on, so it’s fear and smear 24/7, with him being introduced in Denver by a 30 year old woman who had the unabashed gall to go on national TV and demand the rest of us pay for her to get her freak on. Meanwhile, a Democrat party attack machine runs ads here in Colorado saying Romney is dangerous for women.

Another Bald-Face Obama Lie: The Bogus Romney Tax Increase

Heard the one about Romney’s plan to raise taxes on the middle class? As a WSJ editorial proclaims, it’s a Romneyhood Fairy Tale:
So this is hardly news, except that the media are treating this joint Brookings Institution and Urban Institute analysis as if it's nonpartisan gospel. In fact, it's a highly ideological tract based on false assumptions, incomplete data and dishonest analysis. In other words, it is custom made for the Obama campaign. (WSJ)
Using this report against Romney is bogus because the report critiques what the authors imagine his plan to be, not his plan.

Here are the authors' own words from the report:
We do not score Governor Romney’s plan directly, as certain components of his plan are not specified in sufficient detail, nor do we make assumptions regarding what those components might be. (Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center)
So there we have it folks. Mitt Romney did not kill that man’s wife, and he has no plan to raise taxes on the middle class. But why let a few facts get in the way of Obama’s Second Coronation?

This works for me.
The Hill [Washington, DC], by Pete Kasperowicz

Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa), an outspoken critic of just about everything President Obama supports, is considering introducing a bill that would repeal everything Obama has signed into law. King put forward this suggestion to an Iowa audience on Tuesday, when he also reiterated his threat to sue the Obama administration for its June decision not to deport younger illegal immigrants. Under that policy change, illegal immigrants who are in school or have served in the military would get a two-year deferral from deportation..

It may be in vain, but I say, bring it on!

Ducky's here said...

His "you didn't build that" is false and you proved it?

Huh? Blowing it out your butt again, Silverfiddle.

When the actually quote was presented in it's context it is obvious that Obama referred to the elements of a functioning economy and society that are necessary for growth but are not profit centers and therefore are not built by private industry.

Nothing false there.

Chavez-esque heights? Stop being a damned fool.

Silverfiddle said...

Taken the way you say it Ducky, Obama's ravings about infrastructure are, as another commentator pointed out, anodyne observations, controversial to no one. Of course we need infrastructure.

Go on, tell us about all those anti-infrastructure tea party rallies.

It was his mocking comments. Imagine that, a president mocking business owners for thinking they are so smart and so hard working. His shrill tone was mocking and his comments were dripping with contempt.

Get down off your tippy-toes, Ducky. Your Obama underoos are showing.

Rational Nation USA said...

This nation is indeed in sorry shape when we find ourselves arguing over the obvious.

American political dialog and ethics
have found a new low this election cycle. I fear it will only get worse.

The left is coming unhinged and as Ema might say the smell of desperation is palatable.

Shaw Kenawe said...

Wow! You've topped yourself with this piece of bloated acerbity.

What? No mention of Mr. Romney's claim that President Obama wants to take voting rights away from military folks in Ohio?

or this:


"Under Obama’s plan (for welfare), you wouldn’t have to work and wouldn’t have to train for a job. They just send you your welfare check."

Mitt Romney on Monday, August 6th, 2012 in a campaign ad

PolitiFact: The ad’s claim is not accurate, and it inflames old resentments about able-bodied adults sitting around collecting public assistance. Pants on Fire!

Romney: "President Barack Obama is 'ending Medicare as we know it.' "

Politifact: "Pants on Fire"


Romney: In the 2012 State of the Union address, President Obama "didn't even mention the deficit or debt."

Politifact: "Pants on Fire"

And this one that is still being posted on conservative blogs:

Romney: "President Obama "'went around the world and apologized for America.'

PolitiFact: "Pants on Fire"


I really have no sympathy for your indignation around campaign ads, not after 4 years of the GOP allowing the birthers--See Trump, Donald--to keep that stupid lie going.

A little taste of its own medicine, and the GOPers seethe with swollen rage and resentment.

Another, and supporting view on the disingenuous Obama - Lama campaign train.

Rational Nation USA said...

You seem to conveniently forget Shaw that many on the so called right did not support the Trump meme, or any of the rest of the birthers who got themselves worked up to a frenzied state over nothing.

The INTERESTING FACTOR is that the frenzied left is now frantically trying to find ways to wash (whitewash)its own blatant tendency for hyperbole and general BS.

Actually, the whole damned season is becoming hysterically comical.

Silverfiddle said...

Shaw displayed perfectly Obama's "Hey, look over there!" strategy.

I also like how she displays the typical progressive mind-set that justifies their lying because the other side does it too.

FreeThinke said...

I believe this is worthy of repetition. Please get used to it, because I may use it frequently in the coming weeks. It applies not only to Ms. Shaw, but to everyone who indulges in purely partisan political gamesmanship.

Disingenuous use of facts and figures may win the battle, but is likely to lose the war. In the long run using selected facts as weapons only serves to defeat integrity, and that could never produce long range good results.

Ms. Shaw,

You are much too intelligent and well read to imagine that the past blunders and ineptitude of members of an opposition party provide an excuse -- or worse a justification -- of the inadequacies and grievous errors of a member of your own.

I defy you to find a single example that would support the notion that the asininity of "A" automatically provides "B" with virtue or credibility

It's a stupid argument, and you are not a stupid person. I know you can do better.

Instead of trying to deflect attention towards the foolishness or possible wickedness of past administrations, why don't you come up with solid evidence that shows your man to have been a better choice?

I doubt if you can, frankly, but this exchange of insults and scurrilous "opinionation" we routinely indulge in is not only unworthy, it's a huge waste of time.

Affectionately,

~ FreeThinke


Ms. Shaw responded not unkindly that that in effect Mr. Obama was winning the nationwide popularity contest, and claimed that validates his presidency.

IS that -- or should it be-- the criterion we use in determining the quality and value of anyone's work?

"The great are rarely popular, the popular are rarely great."

Who said that?

~ FT

Shaw Kenawe said...

"The great are rarely popular, the popular are rarely great."

No, FT, I don't know who said that.

Let's see, Jimmy Carter was not popular; Ronald Reagan was popular.


SF, you've used the "They Do It Too!" argument in the past. Just giving you a taste of the same medicine.

Also you've come to my blog and exclaimed something to the effect, "Oh my! It's politics and people are lying!"

Mr. Romney has made the company he started and headed, Bain Capital, the central message of his campaign: He knows how to run things.

Even if the charges in the ad are unsupportable, and you and others think what Bain did is unobjectionable, the ad tells a story about what has happened to the middle class in this country.

Liberals by and large believe government can step in and help people like Mrs. Soptik when market outcomes fail them.

Romney's own campaign said that universal health care is the answer to the dire circumstances the Soptiks suffered. At the same time, Romney is promising to overturn the very program that his OWN compaign said could have saved Mrs. Soptik.

That's the larger point.

Shaw Kenawe said...

And there's this little nugget of Romney double-think:

"And — crowning absurdity — in Israel last week, Romney praised the Israeli healthcare system, noting that it costs just 8% of Israel's GDP while ours costs 18% of a much larger GDP. He said we should try to learn from it. Excellent point.

How does Israel do it? Single-payer — essentially a government-run program."


Does he or doesn't he?

[Like universal health care]

Romney appears to be very, very confused.

Always On Watch said...

It's the complete devolution of politics.

Sickening.

Ominous for the future of our nation.

Yes, demagoguery.

Obama is making Richard Nixon look like a piker. Sheesh.

Silverfiddle said...

@ Shaw: Even if the charges in the ad are unsupportable, and you and others think what Bain did is unobjectionable, the ad tells a story about what has happened to the middle class in this country.

There we go. When progressives are found out to be liars, they grudgingly admit the painful truth, but then reach for the salve of the meta-truth.

Shaw Kenawe said...

Yes, because there is.

Guess who said this:

"Tell the truth, even if it's a lie."

Always On Watch said...

As one whose husband recently got Medicare, ObamaCare does indeed deal a blow to benefits.

1) Many doctors will not now accept Medicare patients because of the reduced payments that ObamaCare ushered in.

2) Gap policies (Advantage) will terminate on December 31, 2012, thus leaving seniors with no maximum-out-of-pocket limits. Hello, medical bankruptcy if there is a catastrophic medical event.

Mr. AOW and I are living this nightmare.

Always On Watch said...

BTW, we are not ancient folks. I am 60 years old, and Mr. AOW is 62. He qualified for Medicare because he is totally disabled.

Silverfiddle said...

I have no idea who said it Shaw. Sounds like something Nietzsche would say in the grip of one of his brain fevers.

I take your non-defense of Obama's two lies I feature here as tacit admission that they are indeed lies.

conservativesonfire said...

Obama and Team Obama are throwing out crap at random and hoping aome of ot will stick. Very Alinsky I think.

Jack Whyte said...

Neither side of the political spectrum is squeaky clean, but I find it despicable that people like Shaw should even argue, “Oh yeah? Oh, yeah?” It is disturbing to find so many un-intelligent people who are not outraged by such behavior, no matter who does it.

Jersey McJones said...

Silver, YOU are the one lying here. Prioities USA ran that AD, NOT Obama. Don't like it? Well, sunshine, YOU are to blame for for ads like that too! If it wasn't for "conservative" voters like YOU, there would have been a different decision in Citizens United, and you may well have never sen that ad aired in the first place!

Good job, senseless Republican voters.

This is SF's comment on a post a wrote titled "The Two Faces of Mitt:"



"Silverfiddle said...

*Gasp!* A politician that changes his positions! How Shocking!

And right here in River City!

Politics runs off of hypocrisy and BS.

August 1, 2012 11:53 AM"


JW: “Oh yeah? Oh, yeah?” It is disturbing to find so many un-intelligent people who are not outraged by such behavior, no matter who does it."

Mr. Whyte was all over the Romney team when PolitiFact, Factcheck.org, and the WaPo call it out for its lying misrepresentation over President Obama's "You didn't build that" speech?

Excuse me while I go find Mr. Whyte's and Mr. Silverfiddle's comments on how disturbing it is "to find so many un-intelligent people who are not outraged by such behavior."

Your indignation over this kerfluffle is duly noted.

Rational Nation USA said...

My dear Shaw, you are highlighting my point nicely thanks you.

It is no longer about doing the right thing, or about finding truth, or even about maintaining a consistent and rational philosophy. Oh no, it has become all about winning at all cost.

Thus whomever said "tell the truth, even if it's a lie", must have been a politician, government official, or party hack of some sort.

Shaw Kenawe said...

"There's a world of between truth and facts."

Bull. Truths and facts are the same thing.

Go look up the definition of "truth." "Fact" is included in the definition.

The speed of light is a truth and a fact.


But incorrect data can produce false truths and false facts.

"False truths and facts" can produce incorrect data.

It was accepted as truth in Aristotle's day that an object moves through space because the air pushes it from behind. And the Greeks accepted that as "truth."

Aristotle also declared that women had fewer teeth than men, without bothing to count the teeth in his wife's mouth. That was accepted as truth/fact as well.

Silverfiddle said...

There is a difference between changing a position and lying, Shaw.

Words mean things. Same goes for hypocrisy and BS. There is rhetorical shading and there is outright lying.

Jersey: OK, I will admit that Obama was not the author of that ad, but it is still a lying ad, and it puts wind in Obama's sales, who does nothing to repudiate the scurrilous charge.

-FJ said...

lol! Now THAT was funny, Shaw.

Nietzsche, WtP

493 (1885) - Truth is the kind of error without which a certain species of life could not live. The value for life is ultimately decisive.

534 (1887-1888) - The criterion of truth resides in the enhancement of the feeling of power.

Shaw Kenawe said...

"I take your non-defense of Obama's two lies I feature here as tacit admission that they are indeed lies."

I'll see your " two Obama lies" and raise you three Romneys: "Apology Tour;" "Disenfranchising Ohio Veterans;" and "Obama's Ending Medicare As We Know It."

Just this week, a few days ago, in fact/truth, Romney's campaign let out a whopper: That President Obama was taking voting rights away from Ohio veterans. A complete and utter lie.

I was so impressed by the outrage you expressed in the blogpost you wrote about Romney's "outright lying."

Rational Nation USA said...

@ Shaw who said... "Bull. Truths and facts are the same thing."

Talk to any defense attorney. Facts van be spun to appear to be the truth.

Truth stands on it's own.

Sam Huntington said...

So far, I see no evidence that Shaw is committed, as a citizen, to doing the right thing. She would rather argue ad nausea about who is the greatest liar.

This is why our country is no longer capable of producing quality servants of the people. Political hacks have us squabbling over who is the biggest liar rather than getting rid of all liars.

We are a sorry people ...

Jersey McJones said...

It's a subjective stretch, Silver, but that's nothing compared to the lies the right wing groups regularly air accusing Obama of every bad thing short of eating babies.

Really, in my lifetime, I have never seen a president more lied about than Obama. So, I feel nothing for Romney here.

Meanwhile, Obama's spokesperson made an ass of herself. Her comment about it was that if the woman had been in MA, she would have had Romneycare. By the way, she was the same spokesperson for McCain. And where was Romney hitting back. I am getting tired of carrying Romney's water. Grow a pair.

Silverfiddle said...

@ Jersey: So, I feel nothing for Romney here.

Typical liberal response. This has nothing to do about "feelings" or "feeling for Romney," and everything to do with respecting the truth.

The Obama-Muslim-Kenyan whatever trope has been handily batted down by pretty much everyone but some fringies.

So Obama did mention the debt, OK. But he has fundamentally changed Medicare by taking half a trillion from it, but that is a subjective charge anyway, turning on one's definition of fundamental change. Even the voting law is somewhat murky, and I am withholding judgment.

But these two lies are black and white, and as even liberal outlets admit, are scurrilous smears.

"Typical liberal response. This has nothing to do about "feelings" or "feeling for Romney," and everything to do with respecting the truth.

So you admit Romney doesn't respect the truth. You didn't refute the fact/truth that he/his campaign lied about taking voting rights away from Ohio vets.

And you didn't refute the fact/truth that the "You Didn't Make That" scurrilous misrepresentation by Romney was underhanded and FALSE, as 3 fact-finding groups called it.

I would suggest that conservatives/libertarians AND liberals are selective in outrage over campaign distortions and lies.

skudrunner said...

Team Obama is just throwing out trial balloons to see what sticks and what doesn't. He has Obiden and Slimy Reid make statements that even they know are lies. If there is pushback they have weasel carney say the didn't know about it and did not approve of the ad. Slimy was on his own with his statement (right). The abomination team didn't know a thing about the Pusa ad yet they had recorded the interview.

If you look at the history of the incompetent incumbent, he is just repeating his past performance from his IL legislature run. Attack and lie but never stand on your record.

Silverfiddle said...

Shaw: We are not huffy liberals here. We are not "outraged."

I point out two lies by Obamaites, and you twist yourself into pretzels because you are a true believer, clinging to your Obama-ideology as closely as any christian clings to her Bible.

I am still investigating the Ohio voting charge. It's smell bad, but I'm holding fire until I understand it.

On the "You didn't build that," I stand by every word I have already written. He said what he said, toady redactors in the press be damned.

And even granting that he was referring to infrastructure, the demagogic speech was still worthy of a Chavez or other tinhat populist from history.

These subjective judgments stand in stark contrast to the two flat-out lies I feature here.

FreeThinke said...

The operant word, Ms. Shaw in the "great" proverb is "rarely."

Even so, I give you high marks for quick wit in making a snappy comeback, even if the intended implication of your quip is patently absurd.

Mr. Carter became unpopular because he was an irritatingly self-righteous, singularly inept leader whose administration saw interest rates as high as 18% and a virtual stasis in the the stock market.

When Mr. Carter left office, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was in the neighborhood of 700 -- that's seven-HUNDRED points. After Mr. Reagan established himself in office, the averages rose precipitously.

Despite the Crash of 1987 and the ravages inflicted by 911, The Terror of 2008, the destruction in and persistent depression of the housing market and commercial real estate, a true unemployment rate of 15-18% and a flatline economy since the current occupant of the white house took office, the DJIA remains at or near thirteen-THOUSAND today.

Despite having lost about 20% of my net worth -- excluding the 55% drop in the value of my house -- I am still able to function well, live decently, and to pay several individuals generously for their much-needed, much-appreciated services.

The strength and resilience of the market, despite all the vile machinations of the unholy alliance between Big Government and Big Business, is almost miraculous.

When I think of what could happen if the market were unhampered an unfettered by Marxian manipulation, I could cry for the sheer stupidity of our voters at having delivered us into the hands of the Big Time Oligarchical Interventionists.

Freedom is preferable to Safety every single time. Why? Because "safety" is an illusion. there ain't no such animal.

"They that can give up essential liberties for a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."

His Obama is 'anti business' ad features an edited video of an Obama speech but it turns out Romney said the same thing himself and his ad which shows a pissed off small business owner turned out to be a fraud as he took millions in low interest government loans.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A_qgp86nogE

His ad which shows an edited clip of Obama saying 'If we keep talking about the economy, we'll lose the election' was in fact from a speech where Obama said quoted McCain saying "John McCain said; If we keep talking about the economy, we'll lose the election'

Rational Nation USA said...

Rand was correct. JmJ is wrong.

Teresa said...

I find it interesting that Obama said his policies have worked. Worked?

That's a startling admission of where he is trying to lead this country. A number of people say he is having this country follow the footsteps of Venezuela. What a scary friggin thought....
