At this point, it doesn't matter whether the numbers were fudged or not. It's just another thing Obama is forced to take precious time to deny. Nice job, Republican shiat-flingers.

Since when as a little thing like the truth stopped a mouth breathing derp consumer from jumping on whatever imaginary scandal concerning the scary black man?
 
2013-11-19 07:11:55 PM  
Oh, and the named source who said he fudged the numbers wasn't working there in 2012

Truth is way down on the list of concerns. Their criteria seems to be:

1. Grabs your attention?
2. Does it make the President look bad?

If yes to both, "RUN THE STORY!"

Whether or not it actually happened is #10 or 11 on the list, and is now really the job of cleanup crews like Politifact, etc.

I shudder to think how low they'll go in 2016. Particularly if the Democratic candidate wins. Gender and skin color don't matter; when the Tea Party Derp Machine is faced with at least four more years of a Democratic President, they'll go even more ballistic.

I think Twitter said Issa was already issuing subpoenas to the surprise of nobody.

I saw this derp floating around the comment boards today. I was wondering what it was about, once I saw that it was an article from the New York Post using "knowledgable sources", I know what bullshiat I was dealing with.

Why do they need to make up another scandal when they have a perfectly good one already (Obamacare)?

These same "knowledgable sources" also told me my dick is 2 feet long.

Prove me wrong libtards!!!

I had not heard anything about this.   But Hufpo sure is trying to get out in front of this one.     Odd.

If it is just one conservative blog that thinks there is something to this story,   then why try so hard to control the narrative.

I don't know.   We'll have to look for some more info in the weeks to come.

Clearly this is an effort to downplay a scandal, despite the fact that the unsubstantiated claims of an employee who was fired in 2010 are already irrefutable proof of faking of data in 2012.
 
2013-11-19 08:47:21 PM  
And here's the photo of Obama brazenly bragging to God-fearin' conservatives how he planned to ruin America for his Marxist friends. You can't make this stuff up, people!

John Boehner is currently under my desk, in an oompa-loompa costume and wig fellating me, while plotting to increase food stamp benefits.

We're living in a post-truth society, where an anonymous accusation in a two-bit tabloid rag carries the same weight as a carefully researched story, as long as it reflects some wingnut's world view.  

In other "news", I'm still waiting to see Michelle's "Whitey" tape.

Calling the NY Post a two-bit tabloid rag is an insult to two-bit tabloid rags.

I listen to right wing radio in the car. It was all over the twit I listen to in the morning (Laura Ingram?) and the Tea Party duo in the afternoon on the way home were talking about it quite a bit.

I missed limbaugh today but I would bet $100 he talked about it too.

Any claim made by the Obama administration is dubious. To say they "debunk" anything by stating "it's untrue" is laughable.

Although, I will say, Obama is a miracle worker. He did something with unemployment that no other president has ever ever done.

You'd think that if they were faking it, they wouldn't have made the UNEMPLOYMENT RATE GO UP in the report for October, released days before the election.
