    So all the right wing talk shows keep playing the clip of the disgusting fat bitch talking about "Got my Obama phone". Of course, its the perfect image. A black, poor, female boasting about her "Obamaphone" she got for free.

    Well, it was given to her under the federal program LifeLine. Each phone has 250 free minutes per month. This story is being covered locally on The Post and Courier | Charleston SC, News, Sports, Entertainment, where the Obamaphones were handed out yesterday in the ghetto side of town out of a minivan only for the poor.

    And the right wingers have gone ballistic of course. Obama phones, on their tax dime. Not only was Benghazi bad enough (YES BENGHAZI BENGHAZI NEVER GIVE IT UP!!), but now he is giving out Obamaphones to all the poor.

    The only problem with that talking point? Project LifeLine was founded by the Feds in 1985, as a subsidy for landlines, under President Reagan. It was expanded in 2005, under George W Bush, to cell phones, aka, "Obamaphones".

    OOOOPS!!! Facts suck dont they!

    No, they didnt. They called it LifeLine. Started by Regan. Expanded by Bush. Blamed on Obama.

    Right wing lies at their best.

    But, if there are dumbasses calling it the Obama Phone Program, and convincing dumb ass lazy people that the "Obamaphone" program is an Obama program, they are dumbasses too.

    But the program is LifeLine. Started by Reagan. Expanded by Bush.

    Dont remember people showing clips of poor people getting free phones under Bush and bitching about it.

    Well.. news to me that Reagan or Bush or W Bush were proclaimed by the right as perfect.. each made some poor decisions, poor compromises, etc... Does not take away from the fact that there should be no entitlement of a free phone
