When I want to know about truth, Townhall.con is the first name I think of.

Excuse if I'm not inclined to take the woman who ran the most failed and corrupt GSA in history seriously, especially on this topic.

He doesn't even try to obscure the truth. He tells it to you then someone calls you racist for quoting him.

To be fair, Obama's gonna have to up his truth-obscuring game if he hopes to compete with a pro like Romney:

As opposed to Mitt Romney, who'll just flat-out lie.

The real truth is that Obama was born in Kenya, there are death panels secretly meeting right now and the earth is 6000 years old.

You know what obscures the Truth?

Ask any successful leader and he or she will tell you that transparency, integrity and accountability are the three pillars of a highly successful, fully-functioning organization.

So Romney isn't successful?

Then, if it's to a lesser extent, it's not the same, is it? It is, in fact, different, right? Why not just admit that one source that happens to be run by liberals is more reliable in delivering facts rather than continue this fallacy that exists only to allow the most blatant of liars wiggle room to spurt out bullshiat with no consequence?

She accuses Obama of obscuring the truth, then runs with this:

Obama has not been transparent about the struggles of the small business community which is being crushed by his anti-business policies. Some might argue that the president is simply clueless when in June he proclaimed the "private sector is doing just fine." But how to explain the president's claim: "You didn't build that?"

As a small business owner for 15 years, who often worked 14 hour days, 6 days a week, I don't remember seeing Obama, or any of his ilk, working next to me at 2 a.m. on a Sunday morning, while I was working to grow my business.
Obama's transparent scorn, condescension and ignorance are transparent evidence of his hostile attitude towards the American business community.


Context is only needed if you want to be transparent.

Be fair, last time she saw any of Obama's ilk at 2 am, he was hanging from a tree.

WTF?!?!

Enough with this TownHall/DailyKOS link flamebait shiat.

Surely we can do better than greenlight this crap over and over again? I will not give a click to these paid provacatuer sites. This isn't stupd news, these aren't even news sites. This isn't an opportunity to mock and discuss the absurdities of today's news machine, this is just an excuse for idiots on one website to start ranting about other idiots ranting on another website.

Yaaaawn.

And, with this tirade against Townhall and Daily Kos ('cos they're both the same, right?) on Fark, you've become part of that which you'd have us believe that you hate.

Ahahahahaha, FTA:

"...the Obama Administration's failure to grow the economy, their failure to create jobs, their failure to curb out-of-control government spending, and their failure to maintain American prestige on the international level.

I'm pretty sure that it was under Obama that Bin Laden got shot wasn't it? That seemed a pretty prestigious act when I caught wind of it.

But yeah, things will get better if only Romney could be President. After all, he's been doing an excellent job abroad, recently... *sigh*

The unemployment rate is eleventy billion percent!!111!!!. Obama is obscuring the truth! We at Townhall.com figured it out all by ourselves.

So now they DO care about what other countries think about America?

Are they mentally capable at picking a point and sticking with it?
 
2012-08-13 12:52:02 PM  
Goodness... the author of that "article" sure has a burr up her butt, eh?

"He promised jobs and didn't make it happen" ... despite an insane amount of intentional sabotage on every one of his efforts to do so by Republicans.

As far as Presidents go.... he's been a pretty honest one.

Now show me the part where Republicans did something honest, good, and intended to help all Americans. I must have missed that part... all of us must have missed that part.

Not at all. I'm more than happy to discuss and post on Fark about a variety of topics.

I'm just announcing that I won't play this particular game, and exhorting Fark (both management and members) to do better. Sites like TownHall, Daily KOS, American Thinker, etc. ARE all the same. They are just paid provacatuer websites designed to produce incendiary, distorted and intentionally partisan screeds.

They aren't news sites, they are just troll-bait blogs. We have enough of that already. Fark does not need to be serving up regurgitated red meat.

I wish the author of TFA would have spent less time whining about an misinterpretation of an out of context quote, and more time outlining what specific policies of Obamas she considers to be "Anti-business" and detrimental to the success of her small business.

Seems like a majorly wasted opportunity to me, and perhaps more indicative of the real reason why her business isn't as successful as she wishes it were.

Fark isn't a news site. In fact, it's supposed to show us the dumb shiat that masquerades as news so that we can make fun of it. That's it's exact purpose. Where people got the idea that Fark should be responsible and only put up reasonable shiat is beyond me.
