There once was a girl from Nantucket http://moonbattery.com/?p=48800

#8. OBAMACARE IS MORE UNPOPULAR THAN EVER, POLL SHOWS

(Except among those who became insured at the expense of the taxpayers) As spun by Huffington Post http://www.huffingtonpost.com/20...

#11. CONSTITUTION WAS CHANGED OVER THE LAST 3 YEARS (OR OBAMA LIED)

"“With respect to the notion that I can just suspend deportations through executive order, that’s just not the case, because there are laws on the books that Congress has passed — and I know that everybody here at Bell is studying hard so you know that we’ve got three branches of government. Congress passes the law. The executive branch’s job is to enforce and implement those laws. And then the judiciary has to interpret the laws.”

“There are enough laws on the books by Congress that are very clear in terms of how we have to enforce our immigration system that for me to simply through executive order ignore those congressional mandates would not conform with my appropriate role as President.”

“I just have to continue to say this notion that somehow I can just change the laws unilaterally is just not true. We are doing everything we can administratively. But the fact of the matter is there are laws on the books that I have to enforce. And I think there’s been a great disservice done to the cause of getting the DREAM Act passed and getting comprehensive immigration passed by perpetrating the notion that somehow, by myself, I can go and do these things. It’s just not true.”

Better be careful with those accusations of lying - Megyn Kelly might call you out! Here she is interviewing the lying Dick Cheney:

“In your op-ed [in The Wall Street Journal], you write as follows: ‘Rarely has a U.S. president been so wrong about so much at the expense of so many,” Kelly told Cheney. “But time and time again, history has proven that you got it wrong as well, sir.”

If Dick is a duiker,
And Bush a dog,
Sarah's a dasyure,
Obama - a dageraad.
