Obama's AARP Speech Broke My BS Detector
The American Spectator ^ | 9/24/12 | David Catron

President Obama spoke via satellite to the AARP "Life@50+" convention last Friday morning and I was foolish enough to turn on my patented BS Detector during the event. Unlike the "fact checkers" employed by the MSM, its special BUNK software was written such that it could recognize White House talking points and separate such input from actual facts. It turns out, however, to have had a fatal design flaw. Although I had successfully tested it on several pathological liars, and even a couple of lawyers, it simply didn't have the capacity to process the volume of BS contained in a typical Obama speech. The machine was a smoking hulk by the time the President finished answering the final question from the AARP audience.

I probably should have turned it off after observing its reaction to Obama's first claim about Obamacare's positive effect on Medicare: "We've added years to the life of the program by getting rid of taxpayer subsidies to insurance companies that weren't making people healthier …" This preposterous assertion, an attempt to put a positive spin on Obamacare's $200 billion in cuts to the popular Medicare Advantage (MA) program, caused the device to whistle, buzz, and hop around like R2D2 on steroids. And when the President made the additional claim that, "over the next 10 years, we expect the average Medicare beneficiary to save nearly $5,000 as a result of this law," the machine began to make an odd whimpering noise.

The problem is in your BS bandwidth. You need a Obama-Capacity (an OCx, sometimes referred to as “dark fibber”) line to carry that much bovine excrement. And you will definitely require a firmeware upgrade on your meter to use the newer, more efficient detection algorithms. Old equipment is hopelessly out-classed by the volume of oombalah coming out of this White House.

Yeah, a $7 TRILLION gut of Medicare over 20 years, means no health care or nursing homes for seniors. And if you are female no Mamograms after 74...nice of him isn’t it?

But taking my rights away to have testing because of age is unconscionable.
