I knew from the moment that Mitt Romney announced Paul Ryan as his running mate the left was going to paint Ryan as an extremist who wants to destroy Medicare and push grandma off the cliff. In a “these aren’t the droids you’re looking for” moment DNC Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz attempts to use a Jedi mind trick on CNN’s Wolf Blitzer in the below clip. Fortunately Mr. Blitzer was not weak minded in this instance and was able to resist her feeble attempts to pull the wool over his eyes. Take a look at the below clip.
How pathetic was that? I mean I actually started to feel bad for her. She reached a point where she was just shooting from the hip and making it up as she went. This is how the left reacts when they’re caught in a lie, deflect and lie some more about the lie. It’s like catching a small child with their hands in the cookie jar. When you ask the child what they are doing with their hands in the cookie jar the child digs a deeper hole by saying they’re making sure all the cookies are there. The left reacts the same way. They get caught in a lie then they dig a deeper hole by lying about the lie. Instead of addressing the real issue of the sustainability of Medicare, they live in the now and make empty promises to an ignorant electorate all too willing to lap it up because they’re not ready to deal with the truth. This is how the left wins elections; lies and misinformation. They conveniently leave out of the Medicare conversation how Obamacare has already gutted Medicare in the tune of $564 billion in the next 10 years. They won’t even acknowledge that $564 billion pesky little fact about Obamacare. Instead they target senior citizens with scare tactics by telling them that the Ryan plan to reform Medicare will push them off the cliff. It’s time for some grownup talk about Medicare and in the below clip that’s exactly what Paul Ryan does. Check it out.
Folks we have a responsibility as informed citizens to expose the misinformation the left is spreading about Mr. Ryan’s position on Medicare. Many groups predict that Medicare will go bankrupt by 2024. That’s only 12 short years away. We must tackle this issue sooner than later and Mr. Ryan gets this. He is trying to have an adult conversation about the topic and the left doesn’t want to hear it. Instead the have chosen to lie about his position and use the lie to plant the seeds of doubt in the electorate. That’s the conversation the left wants to have about Medicare. We deserve better. So what’s more radical; to save Medicare by reforming it or to continue down its unsustainable path that leads to bankruptcy and limited options for seniors? You know the answer.
Liberty forever, freedom for all!
