Almost nothing Obama ever says is actually true.

However, that will not make much difference to the low information voters, and they will believe it and vote the way he wants them to.

As Machiavelli astutely noted more than 500 years ago "...he who seeks to deceive will always find someone who will allow himself to be deceived.”

"This isn't a game," Obama told a crowd of 1,600 gathered in a high school gymnasium. "There are very real consequences when you operate ideologically,...

No kidding, Mr. President. We're living with the devastating consequences of your ideology. Thank you very much

The Skeptical Chymist

The Republicans had an opportunity to choose a traditional Republican candidate for the Va governorship, but they chose a right-wing ideologue, Mr. Cuccinelli. They could have had this election in the bag, but went for the more extreme candidate again. It is Sharron Angle, Todd Akin, Christine O'Donnell, and Richard Mourdock all over again. I'm always cheered when they nominate a true nutcase and are decisively defeated. I just wish it happened more often.

I feel that it is gross misuse of taxpayer funds for the president to fly all over the country to be stumping for his buddies. I think that the campaigns that seek the president to come speak at their rallies should be reimbursing the taxpayers.

Boy! The Democrats must think a win in Virginia is really critical if it is important enough to send Bill Clinton, the POTUS, the VP, Hillary, and Michelle O. That it is even a close race is fairly telling, however.

DN Subscriber,

You said "However, that will not make much difference to the low information voters, and they will believe it and vote the way he wants them to". I assume you must be talking about Rush Limbaugh and all those who listen to him, because those are the only low information voters I know.

Well Pinocchio the Tea Party is here to stay and we have been a thorn in your phony side and we are happy to have served you. The great divider Brack O bama.

play by the rules

Obama has been grosly misused the Presidency since being in office.

Cedar Hills, UT

As a Tea Party member I see Barack Obama as a clear and present danger to America and our constitution and as such is an enemy to main stream conservative America. There is no compromise with an outright Communist as Obama ...none. The man must be defeated along with his fellow atheist followers.

Cedar Hills, UT

Let's clear away all the smoke and mirrors from Barack and state the facts. The man lied to Americans for 5 years about Obamacare and as a liar you can project that same dishonest agenda to the rest of this hideous law. If the CEO of a corporation drives the stock into the dirt - ships embarrassingly bad software - his credibility going forward is destroyed and the normal course is for the board to fire the man....not give him even more power and responsibility. Barack was caught in repeated lies about keeping your insurance and doctor and he lacks the honor to fess up to the lies and instead tries to blame others....true to form. He is a man with no honor ...none and so his speeches even to "his hand picked crowds" ring hollow and empty anymore. Can ANYONE truly say they trust this man???

You know you are over the target by the amount of flak you get.
Thank you, Mr. President, for helping conservatives identify the target.
Note that he isn't afraid of the Independents or the Libertarians or Karl Rove.
He's telling us that the only hope of derailing his Progressive agenda is the Tea Party. We ought to pay close attention to that message.

Our country is made up of consumers, and producers.

Consumers now out number the producers, and will dictate who our leaders will be.

Obama is a master of rallying this .

Hyrum, UT

@ Fred44:

I assure you that the low information voters DN Subscriber was alluding to are the substantial number of voters who voted for Obama who could not even tell reporters who Obama's VP was or name even one of his accomplishments (though there really aren't many of those to mention). Voters who vote for anyone based primarily on race are truly low information type people.

You're obviously chaffed that conservative talk show hosts are trying to enlighten those above mentioned voters. They've been warning the public for years about the train-wreck Obamacare would be. And now their warnings are coming to light. The truth about things as they really are always eventually does come to light... even if it sometimes does take some time.

Trying to defend Obama and Obamacare right now is really trying to swim upstream against a very strong current. Don't forget to take your lifejacket.

Hey --

Obama tears into Tea-Party
Romney tears into Tea-Party.

something they both can agree on!

Salt Lake City, Utah


I see so if you vote for the candidate you and DN Subscriber and Rush and Sean oppose then you are a low information voter. You call what they are doing enlightenment? Wow that is a bit scary. I have heard Hannity's man on the street bit, that his listeners love. I am sure he puts on every single person they talk to right? I am sure he doesn't just select those who further his agenda.

By the way I am not trying to defend Obama, not real impressed with his work to this point either. Hannity and Limbaugh warn us against anything the democrats do, remember even a blind squirrel will stumble on a nut from time to time.

Obamas message to Virginia: It's time to join our Authoritarian Collective Borg. Say what we want you to say, believe what we want you to believe and don't question anything. We are 100% right, be a lackey and not an innovator because innovation is bad if it isn't us who does it. If we tell you the sky is Green, you are to accept it without question. so on and so fourth blah blah blah.

"Obama tears into Tea-Party
Romney tears into Tea-Party.

something they both can agree on!"

You don't pay attention. Both agreed on NDAA, Both agreed on the patriot act, Both agreed on Gun Conrtrol,at least Romney did while he was Governor. To say they finally agree on something is just flat out ignorant. All you had to do was watch the debates of the campaign speeches. Romney was the dead horse they ran against Obama because they agreed on everything they just used different terms for all the same basic policies.

Our country has become like siblings fighting over what mommy, and daddy can do, and give them. We're a nation on our knees.

What a contrast to the principles this country was founded on.

“you must be talking about Rush Limbaugh and all those who listen to him, because those are the only low information voters I know”

So essentially anyone who disagrees with you is not informed. The true condescending attitude of the confirmed “better than thou” liberal.

Sorry, Fred, that your circle of acquaintances includes NO BO supporters and NO ONE who watches MSNBC (not surprising since their ratings are so low), NBC, ABC, CBS; or read the NYT, Boston Globe, or Atlanta Journal Constitution.

Not trying to defend BO? OK, you are just being the typical liberal and tearing down the other side because there is no defense for your own.

LDS? lib,
BO is showing when he says he wants to negotiate with the other side that he is just lying – again. He is just planning to shut down the government again in January and along with the compliant media, blame the GOP.

Andoria, UT

The funny thing is we have all of these liberals and their absolute devotion to Obama, and they never question him. He is either a big liar and is more decietful than any previous president or else he is not running the executive branch.

Just look at the MSNBC video of Obama stating that he didn't know of many BIG problem until the new reported on them.

Do you really want a President who either is cut off from vital information or lies about what he knows and when he knew it?
