Lie of the Year

Posted on December 13, 2013 11:00 am

So Obama’s “If you like your plan, you can keep it.” has been named the Lie of the Year by PolitiFact. Shouldn’t have been lie of the year of 2010 when it was the lie used to get Obamacare passed? There is no way Obama would have been able to get all the Democrats behind him if he told the truth and said, “Millions of you who like your health care are going to lose it because we’ve decided to put more demands on insurance to make it more expensive.”

The actual Lie of the Year 2010 was calling Obamacare “A government takeover of health care.” And I guess that maybe wasn’t accurate, because when a tornado destroys a house, you don’t usually say, “That tornado sure took over that house.” Great job calling out that lie, you guys. Super helpful.

Actually, in 2009, PolitiFact rated the “If you like your plan, you can keep it” line as half-true. So back when it would have been helpful, they didn’t call Obama out on this massive lie. But now when it’s far too late, suddenly they’re on him. That’s how useful these “fact checkers” are. What do these guys even get a paycheck for? The media has been nothing but in the way as we’ve tried to fight Obama’s incompetence, and now look where we are.

    that’s an understatement…I think you’re looking at “lie of the decade”, easily.

  3. Basil says:

    Huh. In 2008, they called it true. [link]

    Took them a year to decide it was half-true, then another four years to realize it was 100% lie. Some people work hard at being stupid, and harder at staying stupid.

    South Carolina and now Georgia are preparing to nullify the ACA.

    I’m hoping that spreads.

    Must have been the white half, black African Americans people never lie.

    Lie of the year! Is that anything like winning Pimp of the Year?

    The fact that anyone in print (or on web if you will) was actually willing to call the lie a lie is amazing to me no matter when the actual lie was said. The storm trooper should be there to get the companies files shortly.

    Whatever happened to:
    “The use of chemical weapons will cross a red line for us”….?
    or
    “I’m from Hawaii, I practically grew up on the big island of Nairobi”…?
    or
    “To support and defend the Constitution…blah, blah, blah….”

    Macbeau….
