Get Thee Away From Me, Damned Truth !

You've got to hand it to the Republican Party...they have a way with words. Leaving them out, that is. Talking in circuitous routes. Reaching for an alternative reality much better suited for their aims. Knowing that their FOX watchers will latch on to it as sainted truth...and spread it like wildfire amongst fellow True Believers.

"The Romney campaign on Tuesday released a TV ad claiming President Barack Obama "gutted" the 1996 welfare reform law....."

"Under Obama’s plan, you wouldn’t have to work and wouldn’t have to train for a job," the ad said. "They just send you your welfare check" spoke the mighty Newt Gingrich, former erstwhile GOP presidential candidate.

Pressed by Anderson Cooper during an interview, Gingrich hemmed and hawed, saying, "I believe absolutely the Obama administration is filled with people who do not support the work requirement." He suggested he would have run "a much tougher ad" before finally admitting there is "no proof" for the basic premise of the spot.

The "truth" is finally presented as an afterthought, if at all.
Gee, I only wish there was someway "intelligent" people could check up those old facty-things. Somewhere, maybe on the interwebby machine.......


Good. The Obama camp is putting it out there!


Somehow, this just seems appropriate with the poop the GOP has been trying to sell us these days:

Fertilizer Company Goes Public with Romney Support

The Scotts Miracle-Gro Company, "familiar as the producer of a ubiquitous plant fertilizer, is now a political player, donating $200,000 in June to the Restore Our Future super PAC supporting Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney," the Washington Post reports.

"That makes Miracle-Gro among the first public companies with well-known consumer brands to publicly enter the new world of campaign funding. That world has been reshaped by the 2010 Supreme Court decision Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, which allowed direct corporate spending on election campaigns."
