Constant repetition can cause something to be regarded as fact, so Sandy deBeers says, “The economic policies of 2000-08 caused the recession.”
It was the Democratic policies of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and the push to use the Community Reinvestment Act to give loans to people who couldn’t pay them back that caused the housing bubble, along with the Fed keeping loan rates too low for too long.
Kevin Kuehl says Paul Ryan “lies” that “(Barack) Obama did not keep his promise to keep the GM plant in Janesville open.”
What Ryan actually said was “in Janesville, we were about to lose a major factory . . . right there candidate Obama said, ‘I believe that if the government is there to support you, this plant will be here another 100 years.’ That’s what he said in 2008. As it turned out, that plant didn’t last another year.”
Kuehl says “the plant closed in 2008.”
Not true. The plant still produced trucks as late as April 2009, after Obama took office.
Ryan didn’t lie.
Who headlined the Democrat’s convention?
That great truthteller, President “I did not have sexual relations with that woman” Clinton.
Once again, he stuck out his finger and looked into the camera and said, “No president could have repaired the damage in four years.”
Only a president who unleashed the E.P.A. against business, reduced drilling on federal land by 39 percent, vetoed the Keystone Pipeline, wasted $800 billion on stimulus boondoggles like Solyndra, tried to kill the coal industry, pushed the hoax of Obamacare and refused to work across the aisle to solve problems could have retarded the recovery the way this president has.
Now, after Obama’s policies and weakness are causing erruptions in the Middle East, all the media wants to discuss is why doesn’t Mitt Romney keep his mouth shut.
Obama, by his own standards, should “be a one-term proposition.”
He is a failure as president. Let him go.
