The very first one is based on a lawsuit, not the facts.

And a lawsuit that was thrown out of court.

Somebody has some explaining to do..........

Bundy Family Claims to Have Uncovered ‘Disturbing New Evidence’ in Aftermath of Tense Ranch Battle With Feds

"Though the federal government prematurely shut down its operation to confiscate Bundy’s “trespass cattle” earlier this month, Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) recently said the situation is “not over” and revealed a federal task force is begin assembled."

GAO’s review of written responses and documentation from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) found that, since enactment of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), the Secretary of HHS (the Secretary) contacted the Chief Executive Officers of five organizations to solicit support for one outside entity, Enroll America, involved in activities related to PPACA.

"The oft-repeated “if you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan” also received Politifact’s “Lie of the Year.”

The 2010 lie of the year was the claim that the Democratic health care law is a "government takeover of health care"

The 2009 lie of the year was "Death Panels".

The difference is that Obama admitted the error and stopped repeating it.

>>I cannot stand to hear Obama glout about the 8 million people who have signed up for the affordable health care his administration is peddling.<<

First of all, the word is "gloat". Secondly, I'm not surprised that you "cannot stand" it. I'm sure you "cannot stand" any success that Obama has.

 
>>What other choice do we have except to pay a fine if one does not sign up? Where is free enterprise to choose a company or not?<<

Where? Well, it's right here in America!!! You can choose to get health insurance OR not. You can get your health insurance through the exchanges or go out and buy your own private insurance - OR not. It's up to you!

 
>>The burning question is of those 8 million people how many have paid the premiums so far?<<

No, it's not a "burning question". It's a ridiculous question designed to imply that many people simply signed up but decided not to pay, and it's parroted by those who don't want the ACA to be a success. The numbers are out there, as are the reasons, most of which have absolutely nothing to do with people deciding not to get health insurance.

The real question, the ONLY question, is "How many people, or what percent, will have health insurance at the end of this year than did at the end of last year?" And you can ask that question every year.

Sharyl Attkisson Says She ‘Became a Target’ of the Left Over Her Reporting — and Guess How CBS News Treated Bush Compared to Obama

"Sharyl Attkisson, the investigative reporter who resigned from CBS News and said the network clamped down on stories critical of the Obama administration, on Sunday said Media Matters targeted her and may have been paid to do so."

"“They never mind the stories that seem to…go against the grain of the Republican Party.”

Attkisson also gave parting advice to readers and viewers of the news in search of the truth.

“There are very sophisticated efforts to manipulate the images and the information that you see every day, in ways that you won’t recognize,” she said. “And I think we can all be a little more savvy about that.”

CBS News declined to comment, CNN reported."

You really have no exception with how this result is displayed?;

"Only 15% said they think he never lies. The other 85% believe he lies some of the time or most of the time so that number has to cut into his base."

C'mon, man!

If you believed he lied just once, you think he lies 'some of the time' - which is a far cry from most of the time. 15% of the group surveyed appear to be naïve, however... Or staunch Liberals.

shockers? Apparently weasles can't read:

"The oft-repeated “if you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan” also received Politifact’s “Lie of the Year.”

"In another Obama falsehood, the president said when the sequester cuts kicked in that “the Capitol Hill janitors just got a pay cut.”

.

How many "pinocchio awards" was it that obama has earned? And - who awards them?OK, in fairness, all presidents have lied, however, Fox News or not, there happen to be more liberal rags than not, and the majority of those rags have awarded more to obama than any other source. So who again hands out the "Pinocchios"?

It's seriously defense like: "the survey was done by Fox" (so therefore he wasn't telling a lie because it was Fox?) gimme-a-break-already.

So with that defense (it was Fox's survey), did Nixon really lie then? Hellya he did.

Reminds me of- travon is an angel lies told by so many. Sure he was, that's why his Facebook was full of how to make "purple slang" and all of his drug and money talk and pictures of his drugs and money, and his gang-type rap statements. You have to know - all "angels" talk like that and show how to make a drug drink out of Arizona iced tea, skittles and cough syrups of various kinds (Rx and over the counter).

-

The shocker is that in the "face of lies" by obama, some would attempt to claim that - because a survey was done by fox news, it wasn't a lie? Now I'll give you, that if Fox was the "only news agency" handing out "PINOCCHIO AWARDS" I'd have to agree, but come-on man.

0bama gives a speech. (Not news)
Crowd very cold to 0bama.
0bama faces cold audience in Pennsylvania

"The 15 community college students who were picked to stand immediately behind the president, and in view of the TV cameras, mostly stood stone-faced through his speech.

At the end, when the president walked back from the podium to smile and wave at the roughly 60 people in the bleachers 20 feet behind him, he faced a unfriendly wall of faces."

Who picked this place to give a speech, anyway? (Watch the news for some low-level white house lackey getting canned soon)

Or maybe they just have "junk food" occasionally, instead of as a steady diet.

"Maybe if kids weren’t caged up in schools for eight hours a day trying to fit round pegs into the square holes of the school curriculum, and could actually run around outside and play more often, there would be fewer obese kids."

Maybe the author should have gone to school. They have playgrounds and something called recess. Elementary and middle schools typically have a 6-hour day these days. If they're there longer than that, it's usually because they don't have anywhere else to go. High schools are typically 7 hours, unless students are involved in optional early or late programs. Last I heard, high schools and middle schools typically had mandatory PE classes, too.

He has no worldly experience and just cannot figure out what to do about the Ukraine and Putin. His Cabinet is the weakest in generations and he has no one there to offer ideas or solutions like presidents before him. These secretaries must ask what to you want us to do Mr. President instead of offering him suggestions because they are qualified to do so. Putin does not care about sanctions and sending Biden to the Ukraine is actually an insult because he is an inefficient VP and knows little about the region or its problems. Obama suffers from the same affliction not knowing anything about the region or its problems.

- enjoyed the pics of the obamas eating (do as i say, not as i do) junk food. here are the articles comments at the end of the pics:

This isn’t to say that junk food is good for anyone, but as clearly can be seen, the Obamas eat their fair share of it and are not “obese.” It must be that they do what keeps individuals in shape: exercise regularly.

Maybe if kids weren’t caged up in schools for eight hours a day trying to fit round pegs into the square holes of the school curriculum, and could actually run around outside and play more often, there would be fewer obese kids.

The reason we have all these “do as I say, not as I do” examples from the Obamas is not that they are particularly bad human beings, but because there should not be a centralized government filled with fallible people commanding others how to live their lives.

So, basically, conservatives care more about the income schools get by selling junk food to kids than they do about the kids' health?

Of course, junk food junkies tend to be less choosy consumers, spending more, getting less for it, and saving less.

The USDA has banned all food it deems unsuitable for kids and bases its power to demand such things on the fact that schools receive federal money for education. With federal money come federal strings. <<<

What does 77% mean? Does it mean that they went out and found jobs where the pay for the guy was 30% higher for the guy at the desk next to the gal? No! It is a statistical summary of comparable education and comparable jobs, according to somebody who might be good at stat but not real clued into responsibility levels. How many women take 'flexible jobs' so they have time and ability to care for children? Will this impact pay, you bet.
So, back to 77%, seems the Administration wants to create more victims, people who feel wronged by the system rather than work hard and get the recognition that comes from that work. Do I like what the current president is doing to the country? No!
