    The same could be said of Obama's comment regarding people keeping their coverage. In context, it's a lie by omission at worst.

    If he had been honest, he never would have been voted in as President to begin with. Obama's history of lies, misdirection and spin goes back to the beginnings of his political career.

    The "they all do it" point really has nothing to do with anything in a thread that is specific to one particular person.

    It is when someone tries to make it seem like only ONE side does it.

    How would I know? They appear to be too busy insulting me to try to convince me.
    The stupid you refer to are the low information voters that are crucial to the democrats getting elected. They don't care about smart ideas, they just hear what will be given to them, and have no problem believing that simple statement, but it's usually a lie and it's usually a democrat saying it. That's enough to get their vote.
    But, you seem to be saying that it's the republican's fault that Obama lied because they didn't foresee it? Hard to believe that.

They would not exist, but for the low information voter.
    There is one other part to that story that the liberals never want to talk about. That is that there were two sides to that compromise: One, Bush agrees to tax increases. Two, Democrats agree to spending cuts. Well, the tax increases happened (and later the Democrats hammered Bush on that), but the spending cuts didn't.

    Democrats have turned lying into an art form that the Republicans will never manage to master.

    It doesn't matter if someone tries to make it seem like only one side does it...or that you perceive it that way. This thread has a specific topic...and it's not about the other side.

    Maybe for you and me it would be hard, but it's a grand tradition in American politics.

    Is the GOP led by professional politicians or not?

    But...but...but...Bush did it!

    Except in this case, Obama kied and defrauded the American people. That's a crime.

    So only the Dem are capable of manipulating the electorate? Does the GOP want to win, or do they want to complain about losing?

    Recent history is lopsided.
