Breaking New Ground in Chutzpah Politics:
Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan intend to end Medicare, replacing it with a private voucher scheme. So, naturally, the first campaign commercial from the Republican ticket since the weekend’s announcement is an attack ad going after President Obama on … Medicare
In this painfully ridiculous spot, the voiceover tells voters Obama “cut $716 billion dollars from Medicare … to pay for Obamacare.” The ad goes on to say, “So now the money you paid for your guaranteed healthcare is going to a massive new government program that’s not for you.”
What’s remarkable is just how spectacularly dishonest Romney is. It’s like he heard about an award that goes to the lyingest liar who ever lied in the history of liars, and Romney’s so eager to win the award that he’s becoming a parody of himself.
