  •  Well, they both lied (0+ / 0-)

    Obama about how government is like a family and how we need to cut the deficit now. But whatever, politicians lie. It's what they do, like birds chirping and dogs barking. The real question is to what extent, in what way, and to what end.

    More accurately, Obama bullshitted, by stretching and distorting the truth, while Boehner out and out lied and almost literally pulled shit out of his ass.

    But to what end? Saving the economy? Destroying Obama? Shifting the debate further rightward and enabling RW memes? Cutting spending during a recession? Scoring cheap points with a clueless center? Big lies, small lies, they're all lies, and they're all destroying us, be it all at once or by a thousand paper cuts.
