Liberal Ignorance Strikes Again

7 Aug

Ok, I just couldn’t help myself here. Here is an article I just read and my response (we’ll see if it gets approved)…

Mitt’s Campaign Is Just One Lie After Another

With the economy as bad as it is, you’d think Mitt could build a campaign around the truth.  But noooooooooooooooo!

It’s just one lie after another.  The “You didn’t build it” crap, the “Obama doesn’t want our brave servicemen and women to vote in Ohio” garbage, and now Mitt’s ad about welfare.

In response to states’ requests for more flexibility on welfare requirements, including from some GOP governors, the Obama administration said yes, which the GOP should view as a victory for states’ rights, one of their pet causes.

But Mitt is twisting this devolution of power to the states as Obama just letting more lazy people collect welfare checks, which is not what this is about at all.  And what better issue than welfare to get that racist subtext across?  He’s black, of course he wants to make it easier for people to collect welfare.

BTW, when Mitt was governor of Massachusetts, he requested waivers under the Clinton welfare reform law. If Mitt is so cavalier about lying to us now, anybody think he’ll be honest once he’s sitting in the Oval Office?

Your comment is awaiting moderation.

First of all let me compliment you and say that I absolutely love this article. It encapsulates the heart of liberal ignorance in such a compelling manner. To address a few of your points:

1. Obama did say of people with their own business “…you didn’t build that.”

2. As I am sure you are up on your Constitutional law, the 10th Amendment reserves certain “police powers” like *health, safety, and education to the states, as the individual states are in a better position to make these determinations for their citizenry. This is why Mr. Romney’s actions as governor of Mass are not contradictory, but well in line with traditional principles of state sovereignty.

3. The only people taking issue or even making mention of President Obama’s race are liberals. How ironic that Conservatives see and refer to our President in terms of his policy and practice, but the very first descriptor liberals use to reference him with regards to any issue is his being Black. Isn’t our president a little more than just a Black guy?? Give the man some credit. And this from his own party, how insulting. Really.

Anyway, I don’t mean to insult, and I do respect your enthusiasm, but your article just seemed a bit misinformed.

Best,
J.D.
