President Obama, June 6, 2009: “If you like the plan you have, you can keep it. If you like the doctor you have, you can keep your doctor, too. The only change you’ll see are falling costs as our reforms take hold.”
“Police Find No Evidence of Rape at University of Virginia Fraternity” – Headline, New York Times March 24, 2015.

“We cannot simply pretend that these comments were never made.” – White House chief of staff Denis McDonough about Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s pre-election statement rejecting a two-state solution in the Middle east.
Why not, Mr. McDonough?
Pretend is what Democrats do best. Obama and the Democrats pretended that we could keep our doctors. They pretend still that it wasn’t a lie.
Democrats pretended that the UV rape was symptomatic of a national raging hate for women.
Democrats pretended that Michael Brown had his hands up and that any story to the contrary was a vicious lie told by killer cops run amok.
Democrats pretend that marriage is a rose, is a rose, and that the word means whatever they say it does at any given moment.
Democrats pretend that the sky is falling anytime rain descends, sun shines, wind blows, temperature rises, temperature falls, or storm cloud gathers.
Democrats pretend that Republicans want to enslave all blacks, kill and rape all women, liquidate all immigrants, pollute as much of the world as possible, and eat the last piece of birthday cake.
So we know Democrats are pretenders, children still living in a dark fantasy land, the spoiled offspring of negligent parents, and the grifters who run confidence games with a gullible American electorate. They are liars, as the quotes that initiate this essay attest.
And we indulge them. We allow it. We enable it. Heck, we play into it. If I write that Michelle Obama has little business exporting American style education and you reply that Mooch is a skank and a ho, you are not furthering the conversation. You are ending the conversation exactly at the point your brain shut down. It may have been in Junior High, it may have been at age 21, whatever, the conversation is DOA at the precise moment your mind closed and your brain stopped functioning. You are a Democrat in Patriot clothing because you will lie, you will cheat, you will hurt, you will hate, to further your political point of view. You will deal in flippant nonsense and ugly words to simply be heard when you offer no reason to be heard. You are a mirror image of your President.
And, like any good Democratic soldier, you do not see with any depth. Have you thought about why Obama should not negotiate nuclear arms to Iran? If you think it is because the Iran Theocracy is full of crazy Muslim jihadists who want to blow half the world up you have only half thought it through. There are countries in close proximity to Iran; Saudi Arabia and Jordan for example, that will need to arm up in response to an Ayatollah packing nuclear capabilities. Any negotiation on the matter is a wholesale proliferation of death.
Democrats and Obama claim it is nothing of the sort. But we already know they are liars. Most Democrats haven’t thought it through; their lie is stupid but not necessarily evil.
I believe Obama has thought it through. Democrats didn’t hustle us with the smartest guy in the room; they inflicted upon the world a co-conspirator and active participant in hate and death.
The charter of Hamas states that “Israel will exist, and will continue to exist, until Islam abolishes it.” The charter of Hamas also promises, “…jihad in the face of the oppressors, in order to deliver the land and the believers from their filth, impurity, and evil.”
It is Hamas that will not accept a two-state solution, Mr. President. How can you and Mr. McDonough simply pretend that these comments were never made? “…filth and impurity…” is a reference to the Jewish people. These are words of true hate. That hate is reflected in the war-torn streets of the Middle East, the synagogues of Europe, on our college campuses, and in our own President’s eyes.
I am ashamed of Obama’s behavior toward Netanyahu and Israel. Ashamed we elected him. For six years I believed that America would endure this awful administration, its lies and pretense, eventually casting off the shackles of stupid imposed upon us by this pretentious neophyte quack and his paddling press corps. But now I think sadly of the potential evil we have unleashed upon the entire world.
For a long time he was just our problem.
We can’t pretend that is so anymore.
