    Be careful what you wish for, Democrats. You're not running against McCain/Palin this time. You're up against two people who actually know something about the economy. Buckle up.

    ObamaCare was designed to take away $500 billion dollars from Medicare to make it revenue neutral. Now they're going to have to explain that.

    I don't think that the Democrats are actually in a panic. They are too stupid to realize that they've been caught in their own web of lies.

    The desperation that everyone sees with regard to the completely unhinged personal attack and character assassination is just the normal way of doing business for Democrats.

    They truly just do not see how vile they are acting, or how hateful they sound.

    Was there a contest to see how many falsities could be crammed into a single sentence?

    I'm genuinely impressed.

    I want Obama to explain it during the debates! Or better yet, let Ryan bring it up to Biden. That would be a hoot!

    My grandson, who was shown a spinning top, was impressed too. But then, he wasn't looking to promote the lies of the left.

    Obama will run away from this topic so fast, he'll turn his hat around just like that Richard Pryor skit.

    And the partisan hacks asking the questions will quickly move onto some attack on the Republicans to give him time to recover.

    Its already baked into the script.

    Provide evidence that the claims are false, and get on the phone to Obama staff you could get a cushy job if you can do it.

    Ah, you must be in the "surely I'm too old for Romney-Ryan ending Medicare to affect me" demographic.

    My, aren't you in for a surprise!

    No, I'm in the camp where the person who wrote the law, understands it best, and can detail the exact consequence of that law.

    Unlike the left who have to lie and fear monger to make their argument.

    You see, the Ryan budget does two things, and those things have been explained in great depth. There have been prominent democrats who have shown character by standing up for Paul Ryan's character, and while they disagree with the approach, they do not lie that the Ryan budget does anything other than what Ryan says it will.

    They just don't want to give up the power.

    So, I'll ask one more time.

    Why do you feel so compelled to lie about this medicare issue when the facts, laid upon the table, show that Obama has cut 700+ billion dollars to the medicare system as an accounting gimmick, and has jeopardize medicare not only for the current seniors, but for those who may be depending upon it in the future?

    What do you fear so much that it motivates you to destroy your integrity so?

    ETA: You will only get one shot at this answer. I've already written you off as someone worthless and untrustworthy. Depending on how you answer will determine My next course of action.
