I just LOVED Rep James Clyburn's speech, didn't you?

I especially loved the part where he said:

“When too many of our senior citizens who were living their golden years in the darkness of economic security, Democratic President Franklin Roosevelt and a Democratic congress created Social Security, lighting a candle, while the Republicans cursed the darkness,...When too many of our elderly found their lives darkened by unaffordable and inaccessible health care, Lyndon Johnson and a Democratic Congress lit the candles of Medicare and Medicaid, while Republicans stood on the sidelines and cursed the darkness,...”  

WOW! What an indictment of the Republicans' record!

Only it isn't true.

It’s wrong to say that “Republicans stood on the sidelines” when the bills were being considered. On the final vote on Social Security, Republicans overwhelmingly supported the bill.

So, Clyburn's a liar. No surprise there.

But then there was Joe Biden's "fiery" speech.

It it Biden claimed that Romney once said “it’s not worth moving heaven and earth” to catch the infamous terrorist.

What Romney actually said was that the country’s focus should not be on one person, but it should be a “broader strategy to defeat the Islamic jihad movement.”

Biden. during his speech, also contended that “the experts” claim that Romney has a corporate tax plan that would create hundreds of thousands — 800,000 jobs, to be exact — overseas.

"Experts" did not claim that.

Well, one did conditionally, saying that it could happen but it is more likely that the lower ratewould attract foreign investment and lead to importing jobs

Oops! Joe Biden is a liar, too!

OK. We expect that from Biden. After all he's...he's...well, he's Joe Biden.

But the president's eloquent speech was there to give us the truth about the Republicans and Romney.

He pointed out claim that his tax plan would merely restore rates to what they were under President Bill Clinton’s administration

This, though, doesn't take into account the tax increases that the wealthy will face as a result of Obama care; these additional taxes kick in next year.

Obama has signed some new taxes to help finance the Affordable Care Act, increasing the burden on those upper-income taxpayers. Starting Jan. 1 next year, they will pay an additional 0.9 percent of wages for Medicare payroll taxes.  And they will also be subject to a 3.8 percent tax on investment income from such things as stocks, bonds and sale of real estate. Those are taxes that didn’t exist when Clinton was president.

President BO (the child president), also repeated the same claim that  Clinton was called out for on Wednesday — that the current president has a plan that will cut deficits by $4 trillion. During his speech, Obama said, “Independent analysis shows that my plan would cut our deficits by $4 trillion. Last summer, I worked with Republicans in Congress to cut $1 trillion in spending.”

Only problem is, at the end of the 10-year budget window, Obama would have the national debt at a 76.5 percent of gross domestic product. That actually would be an increase over the 74.2 percent of GDP in this year.

They were prolific with their lies, inuendo and horrific attacks.

And you thought the whole convention was about women's "reproductive rights" and cheer leading.

Oh yeah, I love it all right, I love the fact that Bubba Clinton out staged Obama, and I love the way all those fools made jackass's out of themselves.

As expected: Anti-Obama hate film full of crap. FACT CHECK!

Anyone who doesn’t have a hateful bone in their body knows this for a fact. 2016: Obama’s America by Dinesh D’Souza is nothng but Grade-S Neo-Cancervative propaganda racist BS! The real nature of this hate-fest of lies is to scare Americans into becoming racists and vote the Black man out of office. Even though we were too late, the hate-speech movie has done well in theaters, but we can still post the truth:.

It is also dead wrong. That is because it misses the fundamental political fact of the last dozen years: the Obama administration is the operational successor of the Bush administration. In Iraq, in Afghanistan, in Guantanamo, on Wall Street, Barack Obama is George W. Bush in blackface. Obama is the star of a 21-century minstrel show.

This fact has been deliberately ignored for almost four years by both the neoconservative Right and the grin-and-bear-it Left. Neither side will admit what I regard as the fundamental fact of this documentary. It is a long whitewash of the policies of George W. Bush.

so, they’re just mad that a blackman is in the white house and you can’t wait to get him out?

QM you are so wrong. We would support Allen West,Condaleeza Rice or Herman Cain so your tired old BS is just that ...tired old BS.
I guess you never heard about the Movie- Death of A President and the Broadway Play- American Idiot??

What were those? Objective?

Joe said...

TQM: So. Do you have one single thought other than your own personal racism?

You say the same thing every time you comment.

Any original ideas or refutations?

Have you ever been taught about paragraph construction?

If you were taught it, why didn't you learn it?
