If it were just once, it would be easy to claim that the clip was taken "out of context." As you will note from the changing audio quality, He said these things over and over again.

QUESTION: Was he telling the truth or not?

Ane each time he said one of these things, his nose grew longer.

GEC: He now bumps his nose into the opposite wall when he pushes his chair under the Oval Room desk.

If you are implying that what he said in any of these instances was untrue, perhaps you would be kind enough to prove it.

I doubt few other than the most ridiculous true believers are really buying into the whole argument that it's "apples and oranges" to compare plans on the exchange now vs. not on the exchange then, when you cite "the cheapest plans on" as the "apples" they should be comparing instead.
Now, it seems a majority of people are still under the impression that "Obamacare" is now a brand of insurance that's provided by the government, so making comparisons to the cheapest plans available might actually fly with that crowd, after all, if they don't know that "Obamacare" isn't the company you make your premium check out to, how would they know that the exchanges were never meant to play host to the kinds of insurance plans that have a nasty habit of running people broke with out of pocket additional expenses in the first place?

Latest from California: Premiums will go up in price from 46% to 146%.

XO: There is none so blind as he who will not see.

Ducky: "...under the impression that "Obamacare" is now a brand of insurance..."

See, you just made that up. You have no idea what the majority of people think as to its being a "brand."

LR: The left either does not see those things, ignores those things or can't understand the connection between those things and what's happening.

Just when it appears right-wing absurdity written and said about President Obama has leveled off it adjusts and reaches new heights. I am referring to an article titled “Was President Obama high on coke while Benghazi burned? by Dean Chambers, a writer whose bio reads that he was inspired by the “courageous independent journalism of Andrew Breitbart”. Gee, after reading this, who would have guessed.

It’s certainly no shocker that when it comes to this President, there is no proof offerred to substantiate any of this speculation – specifically that the President was high on coke on the night of the Benghazi attack. Chambers bases this nonsense on some unfounded speculation of Kevin DuJan, a self-described “gay conservative political analyst” writing for a publication called HillBuzz. DuJan states that his claim, is made based on knowledge and experience of drug addicts, and it explains the President being missing for most of the evening during the attack on Benghazi.

You really can’t make this stuff up. However, this type of hateful garbage is indicative of a bigger picture. Since the election of President Barack Obama, followed by the emergence of the ultra-conservative Tea Party, the so-called conservative movement has quickly evolved into an extremist ideology – a fact-free zone where emotions have replaced reason. Emotions like fear, anger, hate, and greed – none of which have any logical basis. Every single day there are millions of right-wingers hating, distorting, maligning an Obama law or policy or tying the President to every scandal under the sun. At this very moment, there is an ignorant right winger ranting about his taxes going to assist the so-called “lazy” poor, or screaming about paying for healthcare coverage that includes birth control for so-called “sluts”, or promoting anti-immigrant paranoia against so called “criminals” who are here illegally – all this while STILL, till this day, there are those insisting that the President’s birth certificate is a forgery.

This President has been a target of hate-filled narratives for the last five years. Some of the prize winners include an anti-white conspiracy being perpetrated by America’s first black President, or Obama sympathizes with Muslim terrorists, or Obama is a communist who wants to institute death panels and touch off class warfare. Here’s a real dandy since it is Memorial Day after all – Obama hates our men and women in the military. Does any thinking person really believe that?

So just how extreme and out of touch with reality is today’s conservative movement? They have a fanatical focus with the U.S Constitution that they claim is “under attack” by President Obama. They are so paranoid that it’s under attack that they have become delusional. They are convinced that President Obama and the Democrats are tyrants, Socialists, Communists, and Marxists – in no particular order – who want to take your guns, property, and liberties away. However, they cede the country hasn’t reached that point yet. They believe that America is still under a “soft tyranny” and there is still time to save the country – that is if only we can get rid of that Muslim Socialist in the White House. As for the Constitution, right wingers please take note: Yes, the Constitution guarantees citizens the right to equal opportunities to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness – but not to a rigged system where the rich have been getting richer on the backs of the poor and middle-class since the days of Ronald Reagan.

Joe said...

TQM: So tell me. Did you answer the questions about whether President BO (the amateur president) said those things or not?

I might have missed it in your rambling, meaningless diatribe.

Please clear it up for me.
