    I do not see myself as one who over-exaggerates...or blows things out of proportion to make a point.
    But I struggle to see how the below is anything but outright dishonesty. It is unbecoming of the office of the President or anyone else for that matter.
    Pelosi and Reid did the exact same thing last year, and now the Obama administration is doing the same.

    It is absolutely no different than if you said you are going to earn "$12,000 more this year than last year"...however your paycheck is the same - you just decided your not going to count your house payment.

    This administration continually shows us that they believe the American People are too naive to see things as they are. They tend to use the gift of gab to allow the public to hear and believe one thing when, in fact, another thing is being said. And then IF they are called on it, they pooint out how they said something else and they can not be responsible for it being perceived wrong.

    Many times Gibbs has said in the press conferences....."I have the transcript of what was said, and the President never said that".

    Sadly, the news media doesnt read between the lines and report on the "mixed messages"...but when Fox does...as they did in this case...people say they are showing obvious bias.

    Now watch....I bet some people say "sure...fox news...bunch of liars"

    It is pathetic.
    I don't know how to see it in any other way as it is an outright - blatant - in your face...lie.
    You can't simply not count $100's billions of expenses in a budget and say your are balanced. That is simply fraud.
    If a company did this to boost stock prices..they would go to jail.

    Iam....

    think back to the healthcare bill...

    They claimed it was deficit neutral....but they took the doctor fix out of it and applied it to the budget.

    It is their way of saying to the public "you are not smart enough to see what we are doing"

    You can always tell when a thread has information that is dead accurate...the other side, whichever it is, is all crickets.

    I like the statement that Jack Lew sought to "Forgive the public for their confusion." What a moron, it is him that should ask for our forgiveness that he like the admin. lies.

    People say that fox is biased because they refuse to see the truth. Fox is allot more truthful than the administration and the mainstream media like NBC or CNN.

    Hey even liars do not lie all of the time.
    But all politicians do lie some of the time and so do political pundits.

    A lot more truthful? That means they do lie then?

    One is either truthful or not, more truthful means they do lie.
