Dissimulating, Grubering. Are the Left Just Pathological Liars or Do They Believe Their Constituency So Stupid it Does Not Matter?

“(T)he Progressive media is in full spin to mitigate the anger Americans are expressing about President Obama’s decision to offer legal status to millions of people who broke the law...”  But it is not just the media.  I have heard every leader of the Democratic party look right into the camera and lie, including Obama.  The following are excerpts from important articles in The Federalist and in the Wall Street Journal: No Not the Same 

They have settled on an old favorite tactic: “justify Democratic misbehavior by claiming (falsely, as you will see) that a Republican did it first.”

 “But, as usual for Progressive commentators, they elide the crucial facts that distinguish those actions from Obama’s. The sign that you’re being swindled isn’t so much what the con artist tells you, but what he does not tell you. What the Progressive commentariat is not telling you is that the Reagan and Bush immigration orders looked nothing like Obama’s creation of a new, open-ended form of immigration relief”.

“The Reagan and Bush precedents cited by the Obama lawyers are different in kind and degree. They involved far fewer people and they were intended to fulfill the policy set by Congress—not, as Mr. Obama intends, to defy Congress.” (My emphasis) I, Barack

“They were trying to implement a complicated amnesty that Congress had already passed. Congress’ action was a form of immigration relief that obviously fit within our constitutional system.”

“Thus, Obama is clearly contravening both ordinary practice and the wishes of Congress—as expressed in statute—by declaring an amnesty himself. This is nothing like Reagan’s or Bush’s attempts to implement Congress’ amnesty. The progressive media’s claims otherwise are blatant lies, relying on their readers’ ignorance (again my emphasis) of events in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Such attempts should be rejected wherever they are found.”

Voter Fraud in NC? How about in Watauga?

Democrats like to argue that there is NO voter fraud....and they base this on a theory that "only a few" have been convicted of voter fraud in NC's recent history. This is like arguing that there are no drunk drivers on the road since "only a few" have been convicted recently.

Word Verification for Comments

We understand that posters are being asked to verify that they are "not robots" by the use of word verification for posting of comments.

I have checked, double checked, and checked again....OUR SETTINGS are set to NOT require word verification. We understand that Blogger software will sometimes put a word verification requirement on "anonymous" posts that they find suspicious, but this would not explain why such a requirement is being placed on our 'regular' posters.

We are sorry for the inconvenience but it is not because of our settings.
