For a man whose posts reek of exaggeration and spin like a top you sure seem offended when its used to answer. Republicans have never looked worse than when they wear the garb of Bannon and Breitbart style hate filled ultra conservatism. It suits you though.

That was my fear when Obama said there was 57 states, and 10,000 Americans were killed in a Kansas tornado, and that breathalyzers are used as an emergency treatment for asthma.

Your fear?  Come on man.  The problem is not the immediate mistake or gaffe.  Heck Bush had those all the time.  And while yes people joked about them, no one seriously thought he was going to try to stand by the statement.  Trump and his ilk actually try to defend the statements and convince people that they are right.  They intentionally create and provide "alternate facts", etc.  That's the difference.

The Obama comparison is ridiculous.  All of them are simply gaffes in the moment, which he owned up and clarified.  The breathalyzer one was fixed even before he finished the sentence, he just couldn't find the right word. 

(On the "57 states" quote)
"Talking with reporters at a later campaign stop, Senator Obama expressed concern that he’d recently misstated both the number of potential victims of a recent cyclone in Burma and the number of states he’d visited, saying: “I hope I said 100 thousand people the first time instead of 100 million. I understand I said there were 57 states today. It’s a sign that my numeracy is getting a little, uh …”

(From Fox, regarding KS tornado)
As the Illinois senator concluded his remarks a few minutes later, he appeared to realize his gaffe.
"There are going to be times when I get tired," he said. "There are going to be times when I get weary. There are going to be times when I make mistakes."


(Breathalyzer)
“Everybody knows that it makes no sense that you send a kid to the emergency room for a treatable illness like asthma. They end up taking up a hospital bed. It costs when, if you, they just gave, you gave, treatment early, and they got some treatment, and uhhh a breathalyzer, or uhh, an inhalator, not a breathalyzer...”

I love it when the counselor comes on here with his ODS.

Now, I wonder where all the outrage from the right will be regarding this?

The entire coal industry employs fewer people than Arby’s

Pay is slightly better...

But the working conditions... Arby's is pretty rough though, so...

Hoss, its too late for him or anyone weened on the Fox network. But I really do fear for the younger set being polluted by the mindset of the hoaxers and their network of disbelief. I am starting to see and hear outrageous "science" statements from homeschooled, fundamentalist school graduates. Science doesn't care about their politics or their "prophecy" view of the world. Add to that the anti-intellectualism being foisted on us for the same reasons and pretty soon we really will be an Idiocracy.

See...exactly what I have been talking about when the RWRE won't go past the sound bite...they just keep on getting it wrong every single time.

That. Or the days of their job killing overrugulation are over and gravy train stopped.


I keep asking... no one of the RWRE ever answers... What over-regulation??  As in an example beyond the sound-bite Faux Fox News lies, distortions, and fabrications....

Looking for examples...  For years, still haven't heard one single valid objectionable example.
