Obama: A Liar, Pure And Simple

Remember hearing this from Camp Obama, which was dutifully parroted by MSM today from Bangor to San Diego:

Congressman Blunt just confirmed what’s been clear since John McCain rode into Washington at the eleventh hour -– Sen. McCain’s political theatrics succeeded only in stopping a bipartisan deal. During the most serious economic crisis of our time, we don’t need erratic posturing, we need steady leadership to protect American taxpayers and put our economy back on track.

Well, it turns out this is an out and out lie. Here is what Roy Blunt actually said:

I do think that John McCain was very helpful in what he did. I saw him this morning, we’ve been talking with his staff. Clearly, yesterday, his position on that discussion yesterday was one that stopped a deal from finalizing that no House Republican in my view would have been for, which means it wouldn’t have probably passed the House. Now, Democrats are in the majority. They can pass anything they want to without a single Republican vote, but they don’t seem to be willing to do that. I’m pleased we can have negotiations now that get us back towards things that we think can protect the taxpayers better, create more options, and frankly be better understood in the country than the plan—the path we were on a couple of days ago.

Lying comes as easy to this group as attempting to stifle free speech.

Can you feel the hope?

    More to the point, John Boehner said directly that (I could dig for a link but I am lazy) the Speaker et al simply came out and said “Oh, we’ve come to a bi-partisan agreement, all is wonderful” like, 24 hours after talks began, when NOT ONE Republican had signed onto anything at all. Why had she said that?

    Obvious. You say that, it gets reported, the GOP comes along and says, “What the hell are you talking about?” McCain comes in (even better now), and what do you say then? “Oh, we HAD an agreement, but now we don’t, and you hear those big bad Republicans wailing about it over there. You can guess who ‘screwed up the deal’ (that never existed), but let us tell you who any way…..”

    Standard and rather transparent manuevering. And the press’ll eat it up every time.

    We Sysiphus, swimming against an eternal and unremitting tide.

    Boehner also said something like “If they (the Dems) thought they were going to get this by ME they’d better think again”. The only way this was bi-partisan was between Congressional Dems and the White House. Congressional Republicans apparently never saw the thing until the meeting that included McCain and the Obamessiah and it was doomed for that fact alone. Pres. Bush should have known better – he provided the Dems with an excuse to blame it all on McCain.

    It doesn’t matter. The MSM wants Obama elected. 4 years from now, the media landscape will look quite different as some of the big MSM companies will have gone under. Just my $0.02.
