Obama Not Even Creative in His Deceit

It’s not enough that President Obama is making false claim after false claim about Representative Paul Ryan’s budget; he is also doing so using the same stale, warmed-over lines of attack. The president isn’t even doing us the honor of being creative in deceit.

I’d simply add this: if Obama is going to plagiarize someone, at least he could choose presidents whose words are memorable and witty rather than pedestrian, strident and banal.

There are multiple reasons to defeat Obama; the fact that he’s too lazy to come up with original disinformation can be added to the list.
