Ann Coulter column

Liberal Lies About National Health Care: Bonus Joe Wilson Edition
After President Barack Obama gave a speech to a joint session of Congress last week passionately defending his national health care plan, the Democrats were agog at the brilliance of the speech. Nancy Pelosi was so thrilled, her expression almost changed.

But as Obama ticked off one demonstrably false claim after another -- eliciting 37 standing ovations from the Democrats in the audience -- America's greatest living statesman, Rep. Joe Wilson, R-S.C., yelled out, "You lie!" in response to Obama's claim that the bill will not cover illegal aliens.

There are a number of theories about why America's greatest living statesman shouted "You lie!" at that juncture, but mine is that Wilson said it because Obama told a big, fat stinking lie.

Go read the whole thing. Do it now.

Actually, having somebody is willing to stand up and say what they really feel, especially in Congress, I think is a good thing.

And of course it is not surprising that they wish to make a scandal out of it. I mean the guy apologized to the president and the president accepted the apology. You would think that would be the end of the story. I

Nope... let's form a committee and decide what we're going to do. Quick, call the tabloids.

No, I applaud him for his outburst. I also applaud the president for the way that he handled the outburst during his speech. It's those other "idiots" who have nothing better to do than to play soap opera.

And these are the people that are leading our country? Sick

And how often did you object when Bush/Cheney "ticked off one demonstrably false claim after another"? Last I heard, Cheney's still ticking, and last I heard, you've remained silent on the question -- which is basically a tacit acknowledgement of your spectacular hypocrisy. I guess not all "demonstrably false claims" are created equal, but you might ask yourself: How many people have died as a result of Obama's "demonstrably false claims"?

Holy shit ... something just hit me. Do you even know what hypocrisy is? Have you ever looked it up in the dictionary?

You might do that sometime.

Joe Wilson had to do this after Pres. B. Hussein Obama kept saying that LIARS were claiming that Illegals would be not covered.

Wilson got tired of being called a liar, hello?

Gee the Pres. issued a statement that week that he wants Verification in the Bill and Bacus added it, so Obama DID lie!

When is the last time a Republican in Congress from Oregon got over $1 million raised in 3 days? Never. Because they are cowards.

Go Joe Wilson.
Anon 9:05 AM We have been screaming for years about the lies from the Bush administration about the criminal alien situation. When Obama's mouth is moving, he is lying. Get over it, he's a liar of the first class. Joe Wilson has worked to get American citizenship verification put into the bill. The democrats kept blocking him. He knows what he is talking about. Instead of worrying about this, why don't we analyze the bill and find out where and why Obama is lying. Why would he want to provide expensive and free health care to criminal aliens.

Will you bitch at Obama for lying to us? You must be okay with the lying. You must be a democrat, they are the biggest liars. Now Obama wants to downsize our missile defense system. I wonder how long it will take for N. Korea to send a nuclear missile into the US. Thanks Obama. Obama lied and millions will die.

Cheney used to eat babies when he was Vice-President.

Now he is sadly reduced to eating 13-15 year old girls from El Salvador.

But he is getting help from ACORN.

Joe Wilson told the truth when he stood up to the Komrade the other night. Now the House libtards have censured him for telling the truth and refusing to apologize for that truth. But, then, truth is a concept absolutely foreign to Pinocchio Pelosi and her liberal toadies in the House.

Scottiebill said...

Also, truth is also a concept that is completely foreign to all the Anonymouses and others who who have no real life and are attempting to make it their lifelong dream to be Daniel denigrators.

How is it "denigrating" Daniel to simply ask him to clarify a glaring inconsistency in his political rhetoric? That is not denigrating him, that's calling for a little accountability, something conservatives claim to value. Look at his posts over the last few months, and it becomes very clear that he believes that Obama is some sort of pathological liar, and he's pissed about him spending his taxes. Fine. He's entitled to his opinion. But I don't recall him raising so much as an eyebrow when Bush/Cheney did the exact same thing, and given that Miglavs presents himself as a model of "pure," principled political conservatism, I'd like to hear him clarify his beliefs and his principles.

So ScottieBill, my message to you is: Fuck off.

psuedosuga said...

I have to credit you, Dan. Allowing the simple-minded as well as the well-grounded to publish here must, at times, make you ask if its worth it.
I don't think any of us blindly supported all the bush/cheney stuff. We applauded his security stance but hated his illegal alien "program".
These folks need to get real.

Bobkatt said...

Joe Wilson may have been reprimanded by our puppet Congress but in reality I think it is Congress that has been rebuked by their dismal approval rating. What is it 37%?

Anonymous said...

That's quite a bit higher than the percentage of people who tune in every day to watch that idiot fascist Glenn Beck. What is it he said it was a week ago ... 1 percent?

Anonymous said...

Ann Coulter is full of sour shit. To take just one of her bullshit "arguments" --

In 2004, 42.6 percent of all babies born at taxpayer expense in California were born to illegal aliens, according to a state report on Medi-Cal-funded deliveries.

That's a straw man argument. The legitimate question is: Of all babies born in California in 2004, what percent of those were taxpayer subsidized deliveries for illegal immigrants?

I suspect that number is in the single digits, and not nearly as sexy as Coulter's "42 percent."

Even if they are a racist lying idiot, hey Robin. Figures.

I just found a terrific list of what Ann Coulter calls "demonstrably false claims." Funny thing is, they're her "demonstrably false" claims. Check out the list here to get a better sense of Ms. Coulter's dedication to "facts" and truth:

Enjoy it, Miglavians!

Bill's Waste of Air said...

Ann is friggin hot and the libs hate that cause ALL lib women look like nancy pelosi or roseanne barr.

DAVE01 said...

Anon 2:55 PM, we are not concerned about non-tax funded births. If almost half of the babies paid for by our taxes were criminal aliens babies, we need to know that so we can get the total cost. You are trying to confuse the issue. You are trying to make the issue seem insignificant. I don't care how many babies were born and not paid for by the taxes. We need to take care of our own citizens, not some slime who snuck into my country and decided to drop a baby so they can steal resources meant for our poor. Nice try on trying to deflect the truth.

DAVE01 said...

Bill, Rush said we have the babe. You are correct. Can you imagine coning home to nancy or roseann every night. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh. I just ruined my own month.

Calling Coulter Out said...

As a liberal who is neither a fan of Pelosi or Barr, Ms. Coulter's perceived "hot"-ness has absolutely nothing to do with the substance of my previous post, the point of which was to reveal Coulter as a pathological liar. Did you even bother looking at that list, Bill? If you did, tell me that if Obama had been the author of any TWO of them that you wouldn't have had his ass for lunch on your radio show. The excellently-researched list, which you choose to ignore, presents Coulter's own words in the context of actual, demonstrable facts, revealing her as someone who apparently cannot distinguish between fact and her own fictions. Meanwhile, your total unwillingness to deal honestly and openly with that reveals you as a political coward, a fraud, so now I'm calling you out. Go look at the list. READ it. THINK about it. Then come back here and let's have what I suppose you would call a "friggin'" (are you actually an adult?) conversation about it. Come back here and tell me you want to stand in Coulter's corner, lies and all.

Truth be told, I think Coulter is about as attractive as the Scarecrow in the Wizard of Oz, but that really is totally beside the point, and now I'll sit back and see if you've got the brains, integrity and guts to address just that -- the point. Time to put up, or shut up, pal.

Jesus, I can't believe I'm even going to dignify such a spectacularly inane and juvenile comment with a response, but as long as you want to go there, I have to assume that you have never seen a photograph of Katrina Vanden Heuvel, editor of The Nation magazine, the nation's flagship liberal magazine, so how 'bout you pull your head out of your ass and have a good long look, Bill.

Scottiebill said...

Anon 12:44: Are you so damn dense that you don't even read your own disparaging remarks that are seen nearly every day on this blog? You anonymice denigrate Daniel every time you post anything about what he says.

What is really comical, but no one is laughing, is when you guys have no valid or credible or sane argument you resort to expletives that have absolutely no bearing on anything. As for your last sentence telling me to "fuck off", I have been told that same thing by much better people than you will ever be.

Anon 12:44 here:

The question I asked is a legitimate one, and remains unanswered by Miglavs.

I was also Anon 9:05, and the question to Miglavs was, and remains:

And how often did you object when Bush/Cheney "ticked off one demonstrably false claim after another"?

That issue is TOTALLY valid and credible, and remains unaddressed by Miglavs.

And now my question to you, which I doubt you have a serious answer for, is: Why is it "denigrating" someone to ask them to clarify their position?

If you don't care to answer, then my earlier message to you stands.

Calling Coulter Out said...

As I suspected, neither Miglavs nor Hot Air Bill had the brains, balls or decency to respond. Too bad Coulter herself can't see that her own brainless fans are unable/unwilling to mount even a half-hearted defense of her skinny fascist ass.

Scottiebill said...

Anon 1232: You aren't asking someone to clarify what he has said by blasting him and denigrating him for everything he posts. That, sir, is completely counterproductive to your cause and your case against Daniel. And my reply back to you still stands. I have heard your stupid expletive from men who you are not even fit to carry water to.
