Why shouldn’t elected Democrats from President Obama down to dogcatcher assume they can lie with impunity and get away with it?
Since they have gotten away with it for most of the past 30 years. Most every word spoken against President Reagan was a lie. He was an “amiable dunce” before he killed inflation, the last great recession before the current one and the Soviet Union. Then there was Democrat God Bill Clinton, whose face appears in some dictionaries as the absolute physical embodiment of the word “prevaricate”. Of course, the biggest Democratic Party-sponsored Big Lie before Obama’s current Super-Big version, was the name of the era that began 72 hours after Shock & Awe when Iraq did not immediately blossom into Connecticut-East, i.e. Bush-lied. That President Clinton had relied upon the same intell to launch Desert Fox and that congressional Democrats has trusted to join with President Bush to invade Iraq is of no consequence since the MSM-branch of the Dem Party decides what lies matter with a wink.
Which brings us to Barack Hussein Obama’s seminal “you can keep your policy and your doctor, period” promise as the sine qua non without which Obamacare would have gone the way of HillaryCare and never had the chance to be the next Edsel or New Coke. When this Super Big Lie was made manifest last month, we immediately insisted that ALL Democrats, not just The One, had knowingly lied (yes, that is a redundant tautology). And miracle of miracles, a Democrat senator from the Empire State admitted it in public:
During an appearance on ABC’s This Week Sunday, New York Democratic Senator Kirsten Gillibrand admitted in passing that it was known President Obama was lying as he repeatedly stated people could keep health insurance plans they liked under Obamacare.
“He should’ve just been specific. No we all knew,” Gillibrand said. “The whole point of the plan is to cover things people need, like preventive care, birth control, pregnancy.
They all knew.
So since that admission, has the liberal Democrat media formerly known as the Fourth Estate decided to resume their First Amendment role of speaking truth to power? Especially since Obama Administration “explanations” have “answers” have also been lies? As if…(think Benghazi…)
That Democrats lie is a natural law nearly as scientifically established as a “known fact” as Newton’s law of gravity. But all the apples in the state of Washington could land on Wolf Blitzer and Brian Williams head, and they would still spin the “news” with “nothing-to-see-here” police-tape around Obama’s serial bearings of false witness.
Hopefully the good feeling from the lies will be outweighed by the miserable results of Democrats’ policies when next voters go to the polls to grade them.
