  •  Perfect. Let them link to it too. (0+ / 0-)

    As a matter of fact, it might be smart to email the link to all the rightwingers we are associated with in the real world to make sure this gets legs.

      The most effective lie is the half-truth twisted into a lie.

      To wit:

      ***************

      "LIBERAL WEBSITE ADMITS THAT THE OBAMAS MAY HAVE CHEATED THE PERSON WHO BOUGHT THEIR CAR!"

      "Did Michelle Obama pay someone to turn back the odometer of a 2009 $125,000 Bentley Continental Flying Spur so that it she could convince an unwitting buyer that it had been driven for only 15,000 rather than for 215,000 miles?"

      That's a direct quote from the liberal website Daily Kos and so far, the Obamas have not refuted the allegation...."

      *************

      And three days later, people from North Carolina to Arizona are talking about what cheats the Obamas are.

      That's the way it works.  No one actually claimed that Obamacare specifically contained "Death panels for Grandma!"  Grassley just "wondered" if it did.....and that was enough to convince a lot of people that those panels were in that act. I even had a woman in my part of Texas tell me that she'd "read" the act and those specific "clauses" were indeed in there.  That's how propaganda works.  

      Don't give these crooks any ammo. Change your headline.  

      Freedom has two enemies: Those who want to control everyone around them...and those who feel no need to control themselves.

        If you're that worried that people are going to pick up a story that is so easily refuted and goes against the affection that a large part of the country has to Obama, you're already defeated, because there are 1000 other ways to lie other than to make up a half-truth based on this story.  Hell, they could post their own scurrilous comment about Obama and post that that appeared in Daily Kos too.

        This brings attention to Ann Romney's actions by contrast.  Relax.  It would be a very stupid lie for them to employ.
