Obama’s voters care nothing about this...or anything else Odumbo has lied about. They just want more free stuff.

The MSM won’t care either. They just want to glory in their leader’s presence.

The ONLY people who care about this stuff already voted against Odumbo...and the old white guys are going to die off anyway.

Sperling has become an embarrassment. Expect he will soon “retire to spend more time with family”.

He’s going to regret that he ever sent that e-mail to Woodward.

We really must love being lied to. No matter what the subject, the official answer is rarely true.

And, they don't lie just to us alone, but to the entire world, repeatedly, as they did blaming that unseen video for Benghazi.

They couldn't do it alone.

Whatever it is, it's always dutifully not covered and thus covered up by the one stream media.

What would a war look like that doesn't use bullets?

We can only hope that she experiences a malfunction in her broom and suffers from a crash!

Idea for an Obama drinking game: every time he's lies, send Joe Wilson $100.

OK, maybe it's a stop drinking game.

I found Sperling’s analogy of giving a robber your watch to be one of the more idiotic explanations of Obama’s role in the sequester that I’ve heard so far.

Has anyone seen Gene Sperling lately? If he was working for the Clintons, he would have been suicided already. I figure that the Obamas have a similar escape clause for their people that stray from the reservation

Sperling will regret that he said Obama misled in the debate.

Thanks Nachum.

Gene Sperling — the joker who threatened Bob Woodward, did as he was told, but Woodward wasn’t intimidated and exposed him, so, Zero told Sperling to not quite set the record straight, thus taking the fall for Zero’s lie.

And the Partisan Media Shills will let this slide — if they cover it at all, it’ll be to mention that “the administration” admits that it “played a role” in the “Republican sequestration plan”.

And I haven’t even subscribed to the Demwit Talking Points listserv.

There is no lie so big or outrageous that the media won’t sell to the public, and it will be believed by many. The truth is dead, and the MSM edits tapes, doctors pictures and sells fantasies with impunity. Obama never lies, has kept every promise and is absolutely infallible, and any whisper to the contrary will be met with hate and threats of violence. We eat better than the North Koreans, but all other differences between theirs and our government are disappearing.

Sadly there are a lot of people who make a living and pay taxes and get nothing for free. Their take home pay is decreasing. Their insurance premiums are increasing. Yet they still think this guy can do no wrong. I don’t understand it.

Something needs to change???

If you lie to the government, you are fined and possibly spend time in jail?

When government officials lie to you, it is business as usual.

Something needs to change.....

They are so prejudiced against the rich they think anyone who claims to be "for the little guy" is on their side.

Explains how Al Capone got his power too.

Are these guys afraid suck-ups in the press won’t be able to intimidate Woodward? Is that what’s happening? The little creeps are afraid they’ll have to start telling the truth? Because ONE reporter isn’t a sell out to the liberal Establishment?

More important than the fact that he proposed it, there is video everywhere of him threatening to veto any replublican action attempting to eliminate it. Nobody seems interested in that video though.

“What difference does it make”.

“What difference does it make” is admission of a policy to say or do anything that is expedient at the moment, with no intention to follow through or be truthful.

As Romney demonstrated in the debate, it is hard in such a public forum to challenge and rebut the outrageous lie without appearing petty and whiney, and yet nobody cares later when the lier is finally caught in the the lie.
