I use an offshoot of this when arguing with a moon hoaxer.  If the US faked landing on the Moon, why wouldn't the Soviets just do the same thing?

Of course, the moon hoaxer won't consider this notion.  He will dismiss the idea of the Soviets faking a moon landing out of hand while still believing that the Americans did fake it.

This is how your favorite True Tea Party Patriot is going to take Carney's argument.

FTFA:  "I think it's unfortunate that again, people who are not very enthusiastic about having the law work, haven't done any outreach to their constituents, haven't given accurate information are now suggesting that the enormous interest in enrolling for health care is not existing,"

Pretty much nailed it. There are enough rough edges to the law without having to lie about it.

Issue is too complicated for those they want to negatively sway.  "IT EVIL!" is really all they've got.

I don't think I have ever gotten a straight answer to why Republicans feel the need to so blatantly lie about TaftCare and what it does.

A little thing called American Exceptionalism is why we were able to create a fake moon landing when the ruskies failed every time they tried.

Nice try Jay, but we all know that Obummer's time machine has allowed him to glimpse into the future as well as tinker with the past, so he knew exactly when, where and how to lie to the American public for maximum impact.

For that matter, if it was fake, why wouldn't the Soviets, who had the monitoring technology to verify what we were doing or not doing, raise a stink? Of course, the moon moron would probably say that the US and Soviets were really secretly collaborating to provide the evidence of conflict in order to convince a public to live in fear, allowing them to funnel all sorts of money to political cronies in the defense industr.... waaaait a minute....
