Video: Lifelike talking-points robot doesn’t like being reminded that Ryan’s Medicare plan won’t affect seniors

posted at 8:52 pm on August 13, 2012 by Allahpundit

Guy Benson did a nice job of writing this up but really, there’s no comment necessary. The clips speak for themselves. Job one for Democrats: Lie your ass off in the interest of convincing seniors that Romney and Ryan are prepared to reduce Medicare benefits for everyone, regardless of age, instead of exempting people aged 55 and over as Ryan has promised. When that doesn’t work — and thanks to a surprisingly dogged Wolf Blitzer, it doesn’t — shift to plan B by arguing that Romney and Ryan are prepared to reduce Medicare for the grandmas of the future, which could totally be avoided if we just keep reelecting Democrats and have the magical unicorn in Obama’s backyard fart out a few new trillion-dollar bills to keep the program solvent. No mention of the unicorn here by Debbie, alas, but be patient. I think they might be ready to roll him out at the convention.

Mark my words. By October, Wasserman-Schultz will be doing these segments standing next to old ladies who are eating Fancy Feast out of the can. “Is this what you want, America?”

“Mark my words. By October, Wasserman-Schultz will be doing these segments while standing next to old ladies eating Fancy Feast out of the can. “Is this what you want, America?””

The very first thing I saw on Facebook after the VP announcement was a graphic of a bunch of cat food cans with Ryan’s face on them.

Poor Debbie Doom. No one is buying her schtick anymore. Of course she’s lying through her teeth. It comes naturally.

She finally admitted the Super-PAC ‘cancer’ hit piece was by an organization in support of the Democrats.

Too bad the “reporter” didn’t dig further and ask, “Then why did you lie yesterday when you said you didn’t know who they supported?”

Baier even asked her how stupid she sounded. Amazing moment. Her colleagues were speechless with the ignorance of the comment.

Surprisingly, Powers then said that Obama has offered nothing and that Medicare will be broke in 2024.

Paul –

I just got this disturbing report: Yesterday’s Romney-Ryan rally in North Carolina pulled in an overflow crowd of 15,000 people.

There’s no spinning that number. It’s a LOT of people, and the Republican base in energized.

And that’s not all. Since the VP announcement, Romney’s campaign has brought in over 70,000 donations from his Tea Party base.

We’ve got to step up our game and mobilize our supporters — starting right now.

Donate $3 or right now to help us rally our base around President Obama’s agenda >>

Listen to what one Republican supporter said about Paul Ryan: “I love him…He’s going to excite the Tea Party and get them on board…”

We can’t let the Republicans claim the momentum. Donate $3 or whatever you can:

I got 5 likes and two positive comments while one of my liberal friends posted:

It’s not political, it is offensive. Perhaps you were correct not to post political posts.

Yeah, after eight years of Bush is the village idiot and Cheney is darth vader and evil, calling the present administration dumb/dumber is surely offensive.
