This latest theme of 'lying' is getting pretty dull.

One person's 'lie' is another person's 'political strategy'.

This isn't a new phenomenon by any stretch.

"Fact Check: Obama and Romney on Social Security




Email39Smaller FontTextLarger Text|Print

The Romney and Obama campaign traded allegations on Social Security today.

Here is a quick fact check.

Romney’s plan raises taxes on Social Security benefits. FICTION.

This allegation from Vice President Biden today is based on the Tax Policy Center’s analysis that attempts to fill in the blanks on Romney’s promise to 1) cut tax rates by 20 percent; 2) close undisclosed loopholes; and 3) balance the budget. Romney can be criticized for failing to provide specifics, but that does not make it accurate to invent specifics like this one. Nowhere has Romney suggested raising taxes on Social Security benefits. In fact, the Romney campaign has explicitly ruled out raising taxes on Social Security benefits.

Seniors face a 25 percent cut in benefits because of “Obama’s failure to lead on this issue.” FICTION.

This allegation from the Romney campaign today is based on this fact: The Social Security Administration projects that Social Security will deplete its trust fund in 2033. After that (and without any changes), Social Security will only have enough money to pay 75 percent of promised benefits. That means that without new tax increases or more deficit spending, seniors 20 years from now would see their benefits cut by 25 percent. That doesn’t affect today’s seniors, and it cannot be solely blamed on the President’s failure to lead. It’s true that President Obama has not offered a plan to address Social Security’s insolvency problem, and this week David Axelrod ducked a question about Social Security on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” saying “this is not the time” to discuss specific reforms to the program. But, after all, Mitt Romney has not offered a plan to fix Social Security either.

Joe Biden voted for higher social Security taxes. Fact.

This allegation from the Romney campaign is based on the Senate vote on Bill Clinton’s 1993 budget, which raised the amount of Social Security benefits subject to income tax for seniors making more than $34,000 a year. The revenue goes into the Medicare trust fund. Then-Senator Biden voted for the bill and so did Vice President Al Gore (breaking 50-50 tie)."

But the dealings with Iran are exactly the same as the dealings with afghanistan/packistan/ Iraq.

Nothing short of delusional.

They WILL use anything of this nature as a furthering point of their jihads.

You are also the one using any misinformation you can find to support your skewed view to prod and instigate an American intervention.
You and your "might is right" and "I know whats best" views, along with the other war mongers, are the real reasons Americans are hated around the world.

We are labelled as cowardly

This should worry me, coming from the queen of failed comprehension reading.
Couple that with her ability to change her words to fit hers ears when necessary and we've got a world class republican.

My apologies to republicans for that dig.

"Where's the press release on why Romney went to France, rather than Viet Nam?"...

A liar, a coward, in a cult, anti-american...

what the fuk else do people need to know about that loser before they realize the he's a lying sack???...



On another note...

I wish there was a way to find out how many people are against Obama because of his skin color...

Because I fuking swear, it feels like it really is a factor for MANY of the voters out there...

If it's not that, then why in GUDs name can't they see how fuked up Romney/Ryan are???...

Im sure there are those of the LIGHT color that voted against him due to his dark color, as well as tens of thousands of first time DARK colored voters whom did so only due to color.

Ron, on the Rubin piece:

She makes the case that Obama is incompetent, because he did not know about Al-Queda becoming more powerful in Libya, as shown by an attack resulting.

Hmmmm.

What does that say about Repugs, who did not know about the attack that occurred in the US on 9/11?

Which country is more difficult to know about?

In fact, do we know that the Libyan attack was by AQ within the country, or outsiders who only took action on that soil?

Huh, Ron? You claim you know what happened, so what happened?

You keep talking about the Saudis who attacked us on 9/11. This was deliberately done by OBL to create a rift between the US and SA. You appear to be into furthering the agenda of Al-Queda. Why?

The shoe bomber, Richard Reid, was BRITISH. So you advocate that England attacked the US, and we should retaliate?

Ken, first the shoe bomber was a MUSLIM by conversion.

Second, the 911 tragedy of 2001 is YET another example of our dealings in the ME and results thereafter. And of course i do not agree with the reaction by that administartion.

Next, I include the Saudis and ALL OTHERS when i say the dealings have been nothing but piss poor for decades while they hold the world hostage for oil.

I wouldnt put an ounce of TRUST of money into ANY ME country religion or anything else UNTIL weve fixed OURSLEVES. And perhaps not even then. ITS NONE OF OUR BUSINESS what country chooses what line or side of communism UNLESS it dirtectly affects the ability to protect OUR lands interests and people. And when/if that happens we react in the way that would settle the issue the SWIFTEST. That was an ugly conclusion during the final days of WW11 when we fought a similiar mind set.




as per what happened in Libya -- it was 100% predictable in the fact that obama helped place the MUSLIM brotherhood in the libyan govt. ONCE AGAIN relying on MUSLIMS to do the "right thing"..?????
The morning after the embassy attack i stated who had done it and you all doubted that as well. Now it is common knowledge. I simply figured that out with a calculator,, 1+1+1=3..
