Hardy- har-har.

Have we had a presidential administration so proud of its lies....or so enabled by the media in its lies?

//Almost three years later, there is little evidence of any more contrition on that failure, or others in Obamacare for that matter. Earlier this week , Charlie Rose interviewed three former Obama speechwriters on a variety of topics. After discussing their work on lighter-topic speeches, Rose asked whether they felt they had an impact on Obama’s more serious addresses. Jon Lovett replied that he felt most proud of his impact on “the most serious speeches – health care, economic speeches.”

That prompted his colleague, Jon Favreau, to interject. “Lovett wrote the line about ‘if you like your insurance, you can keep it,” he said, as the panel erupted in laughter. “How dare you!” Lovett shot back in mock indignation. “And you know what?” he asked as the laughter continued. “It’s still true … no.”

Are incompetence and deceit humorous? Perhaps in the Obama administration, the answer might be yes. For the rest of us, especially those who find themselves stuck between a federal tax mandate and an insurance market that has narrowed as significantly as its costs have skyrocketed, no is the correct answer.//

YES. I just love this. Lets get all of the truth out now and stop this ridiculous nonsense of the past 8+ years..
I am tired of all the lies, spins and coercion, not to mention thought control and all the rest.

I love listening to Republicans and Democrats. merz's comments could have easily been written by either about the other. Its really becoming hard to tell the difference between these two species.

Who is merz?

"These two species," of which you, no doubt, are far above? The post wasn't written about "Republicans and Democrats." The post is pointedly written about the unrepentant deceit and chronic incompetence of the Democrats, specifically the Obama Administration.

You not only lack the stones to post a definitive name, Anonymous, but you lack the stones to post a definitive opinion or take a definitive stance.

You most certainly quack like the Democrat species.

Incompetence and deceit may appear funny from the perspective of the incompetent and the deceitful, and Obama's Administration, clearly, have no other view. How thoroughly reprehensible, the lot of them.

mrez said...

Incredible, Lauran. I agree.

It's entertaining to see Republicans unable to see themselves in the way Democrats behave. Its like going to high school football game in Texas for the all the thought that goes in to either side.

From the article:

"Are incompetence and deceit humorous?"

Apparently, I have one commenter who thinks so.

Anonymous said...

Actually, you have a commenter who thinks "incompetence and deceit" are not limited to liberals and democrats. But I know political adherents need their boogymen.

Lauran said...

Virtually all commenters know that “incompetence and deceit” are not limited to liberals and democrats--but, again, this post referred specifically to the incompetence and deceit of the Obama Administration.

Still stones deficient?

Anonymous, do you have anything to say about the actual topic, rather than pointing at squirrels to direct attention away from the subject?

Who links to me?
