News Flash: Democrats Lie (and Have Conniptions When They Get Caught)

Posted on | December 20, 2011 | 5 Comments

Four days after House Republicans voted to approve Rep. Paul Ryan’s budget plan, “the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee released a Web ad that said seniors will have to pay $12,500 more for health care ‘because Republicans voted to end Medicare,’ ” the non-partisan Web site PolitiFact says, declaring this the 2011 “Lie of the Year.”

You can go to Memeorandum and see the hysterical reaction this has gotten from liberals: Steve Benen of Washington Monthly, Paul Krugman and Matthew Yglesias are among those denouncing PolitiFact.

Why the vehemence?

Because without lies, Democrats could never get elected. And they’ve become accustomed to getting a pass from the media on their lies, so that anyone who calls them on their constant, routine and habitual lying must be destroyed as an existential threat to the Democratic Party.

UPDATE: Dana Loesch points out another liberal lie:

The deep racism at the heart of conservative food stamp critiques offers at least one clue as to why the Obama administration has been unable or unwilling to champion SNAP as a valuable recession antidote: as the nation’s first African-American president, Obama is vulnerable to racist innuendo, which his opponents are only too happy to exploit.

If you don’t vote Democrat, you’re a racist.

    Wouldn’t the Dems need some notion of truth to be capable of lying? Thought they had Progressed past that.

    If they had to tell the truth and only the truth, they would never be elected to office again.  Even they know their policies will not be successful.

    Smitty, by definition, what a Dem says is the truth. Only a moron could disagree. Or you might be insane. Or retarded. Or in great need of a head shrinker.

    Yeah, they’re Stalinist in that regard.
