Virginia M. emails, stating that we should have noted another HUGE lie told during the State-of-the-Union address last evening. (We point out this was more of a deflection than an outright lie, although one could argue it’s a difference without a distinction.)
His statement was that “…Congress passed a law…” which is true enough, but is also an attempt to imply the idea of a sequestration was Congress’s, when it was Obama’s.
(The linked Washington Post article reveals it originated out of the White House, even as the Post et al makes a pathetic effort to paint Republicans as just as much to blame.)
We thank Virginia for her vigilance, while gently reminding her that’s why we used the word ‘deceptions’ in our previous blog post.
