“A lie told often enough becomes the truth.” – Vladimir Lenin, Russian Communist Revolutionary

“If you repeat a lie often enough, it becomes the truth. “– Joseph Goebbels, Reich Minister of Propaganda, Nazi Germany  

“You’re going to hand out vouchers to seniors . . . you’re going to hand one to my father who is 83, who is a lung cancer survivor and has far different medical needs than his former White House staffing son does at 41.”  – Robert Gibbs, former Obama Press Secretary. That’s a lie. Under Ryan’s plan there were be no changes for anyone over 55 years of age which, the last time I checked, 83 is older than 55.

“If Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan became president and vice president of the United States, they would be able to end the Medicare guarantee, shred the health care safety net that Medicare has provided for more than 50 years, and turn Medicare into a voucher program — leaving seniors really out in the cold because as health care costs grow larger than the voucher provides, seniors wouldn’t have enough money to cover their health care costs.” - Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Chairwoman of the Democrat National Committee. That’s a lie. Again, there would be no changes to anyone over 55 and those under 55 would have a choice to stay in the current program of move to a voucher program.

There is one change however that is significant, Ryan’s plan works to make Medicare solvent beyond the next election cycle. Here it is in Ryan’s own words.

What could be clearer than no changes if you are over 55? We are not talking  about some nuanced phrase on page 2,321 of ObamaCare. Nothing changes if you are over 55, yet Gibbs and Wasserman Schultz can look straight into the camera and lie to the American people and repeat it as often as possible so that, as Lenin and Goebbels said, it will become the truth. I don’t know about you, but I think that is despicable. But it is the status quo from the Democrats. No budget, no plan, personal attacks, and bold face lies.

Like Paul Ryan, I am eager to have this debate. But rest assured we will not sit back and let the left repeat the lies unchallenged long enough so that it becomes the truth, no matter how much the mainstream media helps them. We can get the truth out there.

That’s my opinion; I’d like to know yours. Please comment below.

Paul Ryan: Tim Bishop Speaks Out

by Bill O'Connell on August 13, 2012

Share and Recommend:

Tim Bishop has been in Congress for ten years. Paul Ryan has been in Congress for fourteen years. In that time, Tim Bishop is best known for voting with Nancy Pelosi 97% of the time. Paul Ryan, on the other hand, was promoted to the Chairmanship of the Budget Committee over other members with more seniority, so who better than Tim Bishop to opine on the qualifications of Paul Ryan?

Tim Bishop toed the party line and voted against repealing what 60% of Americans say should be repealed, ObamaCare. He immediately started up the spin machine to convince his constituents that, no, it really isn’t bitter medicine. It tastes gooooood. [click to continue…]

Obama Helps Inflate the Next Bubble to get Reelected

by Bill O'Connell on April 27, 2012

Share and Recommend:

 

President Obama has been on the stump trying to cobble together a coalition that will help keep him in the White House. It matters little what damage his actions might do to America, he has bigger plans and needs more “flexibility” to get them done.

Tim Bishop Still Doesn’t Get It

by Bill O'Connell on April 17, 2012

I just got my latest e-mail update from Congressman Tim Bishop and one cannot help but just shake his head. He leads off by mentioning his bogus survey, and tells the reader how (surprise!) people are concerned about taxes. Of course that is when Tim Bishop loses his way again.

Congress passed yet another extension of the payroll tax cut and unemployment benefits. The Republicans did it to take the political issue off the table for the election. Tim Bishop and the Democrats passed it because they think it is good governing.

At CPAC Marco Rubio showed some of the traits that make him a leading candidate for Vice President no matter who the Republican nominee happens to be. He mixed humor and personal narrative.

The Deadly Embrace: Gingrich and Romney

by Bill O'Connell on January 28, 2012

Share and Recommend:

 

If you ask conservatives what their number one priority is in the 2012 election, most will agree it is to unseat Barack Obama. Yet unless Rick Santorum can expand his base beyond social conservatives, Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney may hand the election to Obama on a silver platter.

Morgan Freeman, Meet Frederick Douglass

In a recent interview on Piers Morgan Tonight, Academy Award winning actor Morgan Freeman, once again, laid down the charge that has no proof, that the Tea Party is racist. I like Morgan Freeman. I think he is a great actor. But with this display, I also think that he needs to get out of the Hollywood bubble that includes such deep thinkers as Michael Moore and Janeane Garofolo, and actually visit a Tea Party gathering, (they are very safe places to go to). Here is his thinking. The Tea Party is opposed to Barack Obama, therefore the Tea Party is racist. Game. Set. Match. Gee, that was easy. Does Morgan Freeman know who Herman Cain is? How does he explain that one?

Tim Bishop Attacks Tea Party for Not Spending Enough

President Obama Speaking at Solyndra

Congressman Tim Bishop has not been able to keep from spending, no matter what. The Postal Service has an $8.5 billion deficit, and Tim Bishop is out there fighting to keep an unneeded post office open. We are trillions of dollars in debt and he comes out blasting the Tea Party, because they want Congress to not waste anymore money on green boondoggles like Solyndra.
