    The Republicans.. since they will have the seat and can gloat. That she is a wack job and will cause massive problems for them later on and cause the US harm, does not matter to the Republicans.. they won after all.. and winning is all that matters for the Republicans. The Republicans dont care about Americans, only about themselves after all.

    Ah yes, let the oversimplication and petty justifications begin.

    Actually, no, people from all sides have been collectively watching with a "WTF" look on their face since Obama and his ilk got into action. People are screaming "where are you getting all this money?" and "what in the hell have we elected?"

    November will be the classic do-over from Americans, who are over the "historical" idea of electing a black guy no matter what he actually believes in.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Actually WINNING is ALL that matters for Democrats because if it were different than someone like Boxer would never have arrived in the Senate to begin with considering her 1992 First race against Bruce Herschenson- or Frank Lautenbergs narrow 1982 Win over Millicent Fenwick.

    If you're talking about Angle, I would ask how did she get the nomination. If you're talking about Ried, I repeat the questions:

    I would agree it is a problem with both parties. What escapes me is why we play that game with them?

    The poor, which was refering to Reid, was about performance. I think you know that, but either way, you're still not answering the questions. I wonder why?

    Wait, wait, wait here...."The Democrat Fib"? what was that according to you? would that be....

    WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama told voters repeatedly during the health care debate that the overhaul legislation would bring down fast-rising health care costs and save them money.

    snip

    THE FACTS:Health spending already accounts for about 17 percent of the economy and is projected to grow to nearly 20 percent in 2019.

    news.yahoo.com/s/ap/us_obama_fact_check
    Or was the "Fib" that:

    No one will be compelled to buy coverage.

    THE FACTS: Obama is behaving as if he said never a hostile word about the mandate. Earlier this month, in a letter to Sens. Max Baucus, D-Mont., and Ted Kennedy, D-Mass., he blithely declared that he was all for "making every American responsible for having health insurance coverage, and making employers share in the cost."

    But just like Hillary, he is refusing to say precisely what he will do to those who want to forgo insurance. There is a name for such a health care approach: It is called TonySopranoCare.

    Obama's Top Five Health Care Lies - Forbes.com
    And on, and on....

    Hell, compared to death panels and socialism, those are prue minor league.....However, the death panel socialism stuff never will be true.
    Well, not so fast Joe....

    If President Obama wanted to keep a lid on that particular controversy, he just selected about the worst possible nominee for director of the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services, the office that oversees government health care programs. Obama’s pick, Dr. Donald Berwick, is an outspoken admirer of the British National Health Service and its rationing arm, the National Institute for Clinical Effectiveness (NICE).

    “I am romantic about the National Health Service. I love it,” Berwick said during a 2008 speech to British physicians, going on to call it “generous, hopeful, confident, joyous, and just.” He compared the wonders of British health care to a U.S. system that he described as trapped in “the darkness of private enterprise.”

    Berwick was referring to a British health care system where 750,000 patients are awaiting admission to NHS hospitals. The government’s official target for diagnostic testing was a wait of no more than 18 weeks by 2008. The reality doesn’t come close. The latest estimates suggest that for most specialties, only 30 to 50 percent of patients are treated within 18 weeks. For trauma and orthopedics patients, the figure is only 20 percent.

    ‘Death panels’ were an overblown claim – until now | The Daily Caller - Breaking News, Opinion, Research, and Entertainment
    Left-leaning New York Times economic columnist Paul Krugman says the so-called "death panels" established by President Obama's trillion-dollar nationalized health-care plan will end up saving "a lot of money" for the government.

    The comments from Krugman, who also writes on the New York Times blogs, came during a discussion of "Obamacare" on the ABC News Sunday program "This Week."

    N.Y. Times columnist: Death panels will save 'a lot of money'
    And on, and on that debate goes.

    Lie of the year stuff.
    the only "Lie of the year stuff" that is going on here is through demo's desperate to salvage their own credibility in this election cycle. They are lying Joe. And you are buying it hook, line, and sinker....consider:
