"You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time."
Clearly this is not a favorite saying of Barrack Obama or the Democratic Party these days....
Or as my not so favorite elf says.
Yup, not that you would know it from the sycophants of the modern liberal media, but the entire Obama Administration has been built on lies and half-truths...and now...SIX years later, their curtain of deceit is finally falling away.
Sadly, it's too late, as the Golfer-in-Chief still has two years to try and rule by executive edict and race-baiting, but at least maybe....just maybe, Americans will be more skeptical of the media election by acclamation of Hillary "kill all Bill's bimbos and let God sort them out" Clinton.
Of course, none of this comes as a surprise to anyone who has been paying attention and who doesn't consider John Stewart, Stephen Colbert or ABCBSMSNBCNN a viable news source.
For those of us paying attention, we always knew that the entire Democratic establishment lied, lied, and lied some more to pass Obamacare, and they still had to use dubious parliamentary maneuvering to pass it in the dead of night.
Now of course, the truth really does come out in the form of TV interviews of a prime Obamacare architect saying..to paraphrase Nancy "Where's my Botox" Pelosi--"We had to lie about the bill to pass the bill to see what we lied about putting in it."
Of course, the usual lefty crowd have no problem with these lies...
"This bill was written in a tortured way to make sure CBO did not score the mandate as taxes," he said during a panel discussion at the University of Pennsylvania in October, 2013. "Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage. And basically, call it the 'stupidity of the American voter' or whatever, but basically that was really, really critical to getting the thing to pass.....In terms of risk-rated subsidies, if you had a law which explicitly said that healthy people pay in and sick people get money, it would not have passed," he said. "You can't do it politically, you just literally cannot do it. It's not only transparent financing but also transparent spending."
It's true that the average Joe didn't know anything about this, but not because the average Joe is stupid. It's because most people simply don't pay attention to this stuff even slightly. The fraction of the electorate that cares about the minutiae of policymaking could be stored in a pickle jar. That's just life.So America, since we're too stupid and don't pay attention enough to be brilliant policy wonks like liberals...well we got a fast one pulled on us, huh?
Not that we are paying attention, because most of us just found out our health insurance is not less expensive, has higher deductibles, and less access to doctors and hospitals---Let's pick our favorite Obamacare lie, shall we?
1) Obamacare won't pay for abortions or force anyone to pay for abortions
2) If you like your doctor or health insurance plan, you can keep it
3) It will reduce your premium by $2500
4) It will cost LESS THAN $1T over 10 years.
5) All of the above
I pick 5....yup they were all lies.
How about another excellent Obama lie---Benghazi was all about a video...OSAMA IS DEAD AND GM IS ALIVE!
Yea, that was one of my favorites too...just a stupid enough bumper sticker phrase that even "Lunch bucket" Joe Biden could remember it.
Now of course, the ugly truth comes out...ISIS was forming, Syria was falling apart and Iraq was descending into chaos...OH, yea and Libya, that awesome "lead from behind" unconstitutional war that Obama started, as opposed to that warmongering George W Bush, yea Libya's coming apart at the seams too.
So now we read that "Commando" Barry Obama is going to send troops back to Anbar Province Iraq...you know that awful, awful, bad place that no patriotic left-leaning American wanted anything to do with to.......fight ISIS and those pesky Islamic "extremists" (oh, liberals wonder, why do they hate us so?) The same ISIS murdering thugs that had the temerity to interfere with Obama's tee time by beheading an American journalist....at least as long as it took Barry "Par Five" Obama to change from his business suit to his golf pants.
ANNNDDD, just because Barry and his socialist, collectivist minions want to take over and censor the Internet...yup...cuz dissent cannot be tolerated in the Worker's Paradise...can't have anyone not worshipping the Anointed Affirmative Action One...we have an announcement by Barry "I'm from the government and I'm here to help" Obama to...wait for it...regulate the Internet as a "common carrier" service.
Now, not that I have anything against Net Neutrality as a concept...I am just skeptical of three-lettered government agencies...IRS, EPA, NSA, FEC, FCC trying to decide what is or isn't in the public good.
Yup the nexus of the FCC declaring the Internet a "common carrier" combined with the DEMOCRATIC member of the FEC wanting to regulate political speech on blogs (oops, think they mean me?) is just a little unsettling, given this Administration's record of persecution of dissent and desire to impose North Korean-level political correctness on average Americans like yours truly.
So. let's stop kidding ourselves. Liberals lie because they think the rest of us are stupid...and racist...and xenophobic, and misogynist...and well, because they are just smarter and better than us so we need to just sit down, shut up, and let them tell us what to do, what to think, what to say and who to hate....
NOPE, don't think so...the wool fell from this Grouchy Historian's eyes a long time ago. I don't trust any Democrat these days;
Joke---How can you tell when a Democrat is lying....THEIR LIPS ARE MOVING
Oldie but goodie...about the only fun thing about watching liberals lie is when they lie to cover up the lies they told in the first place...which can lead to some pretty interesting mangling of the English language...remember the old joke about the man caught in bed with another woman by his wife---"WHO are are going to believe...me or your eyes?"
Well, I for one, have my eyes wide open and can only hope that enough decent Americans will put fear into the rest of the Democratic Party that Obama is about to Thelma and Louise them right over the cliff and stop his executive order dictatorship...nahhhhhhhhhhhhh, who am I kidding....
