Obama's Social Security Whopper and other lies

Obama lies to scare seniors about Social Security
In our "Scaring Seniors" article posted Sept. 19 we took apart a claim in an Obama-Biden ad that McCain somehow supported a 50 percent cut in Social Security benefits, which is simply false. Then, on Saturday Sept. 20, Sen. Barack Obama personally fed senior citizens another whopper, this one a highly distorted claim about the private Social Security accounts that McCain supports.
(all credit on the above to Newsweek and

Here's more from
Obama has thrown so many false accusations against John McCain that just keeping track of them has become difficult. And these aren't innocent errors. They are deliberate distortions of the sort Obama has always said he reviles.

This is not the Barack Obama so many voters in New Hampshire and elsewhere thought they knew. But it is the real Barack Obama. For despite his rhetoric, he is in fact campaigning so dishonestly that even The Washington Post and The New York Times have called him on it.

How can Obama and company blame Bush for this one?

Oh yeah, that's straight from the Dimocrat playbook: foul something up royally while serving your own political interests, then when it blows up on you, BLAME BUSH.

In the last week, I have heard Obama, Hillary, and all the usually suspects singing this chorus.

Senator Hillary Clinton said it's important to learn from what went wrong so the country can assess what needs to be done. She also said the Bush administration failed to admit a crisis had been brewing.
"What we have seen over the course of the last eight years is an administration that refused to recognize the threats lurking in our economy, no matter what lurked just beneath the surface, or what problems were facing middle class families," said Clinton.

However, the man they blame was warning about this exactly 5 years ago, when proposing reformed oversight for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac in September of 2003!! He was met with fierce opposition from Democrats, including Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA), and Rep. Melvin Watt (D-NC):

''These two entities -- Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac -- are not facing any kind of financial crisis,'' said Representative Barney Frank of Massachusetts, the ranking Democrat on the Financial Services Committee. ''The more people exaggerate these problems, the more pressure there is on these companies, the less we will see in terms of affordable housing.''

''I don't see much other than a shell game going on here, moving something from one agency to another and in the process weakening the bargaining power of poorer families and their ability to get affordable housing,'' Mr. Watt said.

Hmmmm. My brother always says to follow the money. The Bush Administration saw this coming and tried to take action 5 years ago. Democrats on the take blocked him.

Democrat meltdown

I am just dying to post about some of the antics this week, but don't have time. Have some good material that's just dying to get out about the Palin email hacking and the Dims' blaming of the financial crisis on Bush/McCain.

Maybe tomorrow morning. Gig 'em Aggies. BTHO Miami

This is MY blog

starting today, I will be blogging my own thoughts and opining about what I care about. I have been on some other blogs with friends where they get tired of my political rants and insistence on blogging about relevant current events.

With MY blog, it's MY content, MY opinion, and MY say on everything. If you don't like it, go somewhere else.

I am a real conservative, and a patriotic American. My political heroes are Ronald Reagan and Newt Gingrich. I love George W. Bush, and think history will judge him as a GREAT president. No, I don't agree with everything he has done. He has not always been adherent to conservative principles. Overall, the defining issue of his Presidency is the war on Islamo-fascism, and spreading freedom and democracy (the "Bush Doctrine"), and on that issue, Bush-43 has been a great leader.
