Ouch!… Mary Matalin Calls Krugman a Liar to His Face (Video)

Conservative Mary Matalin stunned liberal activist Paul Krugman today on This Week with George Stephanopoulos.

Matalin pounded Krugman during the discussion on Romney’s debate win this past week,
“You’re hardly credible on calling somebody else a liar.”
This was great…


Let’s face it. Krugman just does not do well unless he’s in front of a computer and has thirty minutes to think out a response.

    oh, no she didn’t? YOU HAVE GOT TO LOVE IT WHEN: Krugman or the likes of him, is called out for lying, but when a WOMAN has to do it, proves to me what a wuss Krugman truly is.

    Same old talking points, it is like these liberals have read their script and memorized it in hopes others believe them. UH, look at ABC audience. No convincing there.


    Paul Krugman Gets Busted Lying to His Readers About Obamacare

    Krugman’s failure stems from the fact that he attempts to call the writer of the Newsweek piece “unethical” while Krugman himself misrepresents the CBO report he links to, deliberately misleading his own readers about the costs and increased deficit projections of Obamacare.

    Niall Ferguson quickly responds showing Krugman for the liar he is:

    In my piece I say: “The president pledged that health-care reform would not add a cent to the deficit. But the CBO and the Joint Committee on Taxation now estimate that the insurance-coverage provisions of the ACA will have a net cost of close to $1.2 trillion over the 2012–22 period.”

    Krugman counters in his Conscience of a Liberal blog by saying: “The ACA would reduce, not increase, the deficit—because the insurance subsidies were fully paid for.” But I very deliberately said “the insurance coverage provisions of the ACA,” not “the ACA.” There is a big difference.

    Krugman suggests that I haven’t read the CBO’s March 2010 report.

    ‘Global war curriculum’ seen in Iran’s schools

    [ BRUSSELS — The Iranian education system is preparing its students
    for a global war against the West in the name of Islam, according to
    an independent study of 115 textbooks and teachers guides released

    With Tehran accused of seeking to develop a nuclear weapons arsenal
    and the United States dispatching a second aircraft carrier to the Gulf,
    the report by the Center for Monitoring the Impact of Peace highlights
    the uphill task Washington faces trying to persuade Iranian youth to
    distance themselves from the hard-line Islamist regime.

    The study, which claims to be the first of its kind, catalogs how pupils
    as young as 9 are conditioned to take part in a global jihad against
    such “infidel oppressors” as Israel and the United States.

    “Hate indoctrination is a professed goal of Iranian textbooks,” said
    the report’s author, Arnon Groiss, a Princeton- and Harvard-educated
    journalist who also has written critical studies of the Israeli, Palestinian,
    Syrian, Saudi and Egyptian education systems.

    According to Mr. Groiss, Iranian pupils learn from an early age that
    the Islamic republic is in mortal combat with Western powers bent
    on its destruction.

    One 11th-grade textbook, quoting former spiritual leader Ayatollah
    Ruhollah Khomeini, refers to the United States and its allies as “the
    World Devourers” and says that if they “wish to stand against our
    religion, we will stand against their whole world and will not cease
    until the annihilation of all of them.”]

    Krugman smacked down by two intelligent ladies. He called for a break climbed down from his chair, went to change his depends and book himself on Letterman to boost his self esteem. Dave the dolt will nod his wobbly head at anything he says.

    #15 thinks the Nobel Prize is still the rubric of accomplishment. The fact that Obama received one should be an indication to everyone that the Oslo Committees have an agenda that is less than academic. Prize winners are now seen as having met ideological criteria of a decaying Western Europe.

    However, it’s still fun to pretend. That’s part of the reason we still enjoy opening a Cracker Jacks box.

    It’s Easier to Get Welfare Than to Work

    “First I went to the Manhattan Jobs Center and asked, “Can I get help finding a job?” They told me they don’t do that. ‘We sign people up for food stamps.’ I tried another jobs center. They told me to enroll for unemployment benefits.”

    So the “jobs” centers help people get handouts. Neither center suggested people try the 40 job openings in the neighborhood.

    My intern persisted:

    “I explained that I didn’t want handouts; I wanted a job. I was told to go to ‘WorkForce1,’ a New York City program. At WorkForce1, the receptionist told me that she couldn’t help me since I didn’t have a college degree. She directed me to another center in Harlem. In Harlem, I was told that before I could get help, I had to come back for an 8:30 a.m. ‘training session.'”

    Our government helps you apply for handouts immediately, but forces you through a maze if you want to work.

    “WorkForce1’s website says to arrive 30 minutes early, so I did,” Zoelle said. “A security guard told me the building was closed. At 9:15, Workforce1 directed 30 of us into a room where we were told that WorkForce1 directs candidates to jobs and provides a resource room with ‘free’ phone, fax and job listings and helps people apply for unemployment insurance and disability handouts. This seemed like the only part of the presentation when people took notes.

    “One lady told me that she comes to WorkForce1 because it helps her collect unemployment. One asked another, ‘What do you want to do?’ The second laughed, ‘I want to collect!’ One told me, ‘I’ve been coming here 17 months; this place is a waste of time.’

    And they still don’t get it. If Romney was lying – I’m not saying he was – then it makes it really easy to take him down. It’s great to debate liars, you defeat them easily with facts and presentation. How come the smartest guy ever didn’t do it? And how does he plan to handle world leaders who disagree with him? Oh, we already know that.

    Devastating Ad: The Real Jobs Report


    The ad is titled “Dinner Table” and features a recently unemployed father trying to eat dinner with his worried wife and two kids. The only sounds that can be heard are the tinkling of utensils as the family unnervingly pokes at their food. It is a scene that has been played in real life in millions of homes across America during the Great Recession and the so-called recovery.

    After 23 seconds, the ad, which was created, written, and directed by Jon Kahn, then fades to a black-and-white question on the screen: “12.1 million Americans unemployed. Isn’t it time to try something different?”

    Oh come on, you guys have to be kidding!

    Ms. Matalin claims that the Ryan Medicare plan is a ‘premium support’ plan, and Krugman responds that it’s a ‘voucher’ plan, which is exactly correct. She calls him a liar for being correct. No facts, just an insult.

    Then the other Harpie (mercifully I forget her name) claims that this is the slowest recovery from a recession ever, and Krugman cooly responds that no, for a financial recession ( which is what we’re in), it’s in line with other recessions, and in fact a little ahead. Then SHE calls him a liar for being correct. No facts, just another insult.

    So being a liar means stating what’s true. I think I read a novel by George Orwell that claimed the same thing. Only he was being ironic.

    Fact Check: Dems Lie about Ryan’s Medicare Plan

    [Democrats have either decided that lying to the American public is perfectly OK, or they haven’t done their homework. I’m not sure which is worse. Since the announcement that Wisconsin Representative Paul Ryan was Mitt Romney’s VP choice, Democrats from campaign manager Jim Messina to former Governor Howard Dean have flooded the airwaves decrying Ryan’s proposals to reform Medicare. That’s perfectly acceptable–Ryan’s plan is fair game–except when the Dems lie about it, or, at best, ignorantly get the story wrong. Is that what we have come to?]

    No End to ‘End Medicare’ Claim

    [Here’s a quick rundown of the latest Ryan plan:

    For seniors who are now in Medicare, nothing changes.
    They can stay with the traditional program as it is.

    Beginning in 2023, 65-year-olds would have their choice of
    insurance plans — private and traditional — on a new Medicare
    exchange. A premium-support payment, like a subsidy, would
    be sent to the plan of their choice.

    If the chosen plan costs more than the premium
    -support, the senior would pay the difference.

    The Medicare eligibility age would be slowly raised to 67 by 2034.

    All plans on the Medicare exchange would offer a base level of benefits,
    and they would be regulated by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid

    The premium-support payments would be tied to the second-cheapest
    plan, which can’t grow more than gross domestic product plus 0.5
    percentage points. If the cost does grow faster, Congress would be
    required to step in and take some action to keep costs down.]

    Thank You MM.. 🙂

    bit more..

    Why the Democrats’ ‘Mediscare’ Attack Won’t
    Work Against Paul Ryan And Mitt Romney

    [The Romney and Wyden-Ryan plans preserve traditional Medicare

    The Obama campaign, upon learning of the Paul Ryan pick, went straight
    for the jugular. Ryan’s plan “would end Medicare as we know it by turning
    it into a voucher system, shifting thousands of dollars in health care costs
    to seniors,” said Obama spokesman Jim Messina this morning. But that’s
    not true.

    As we’ve documented extensively at The Apothecary, the Wyden-Ryan
    Medicare plan—so named because it was coauthored by progressive Sen.
    Ron Wyden (D., Ore.)—only applies to Americans younger than 55 years
    of age, and gives those younger individuals the option of remaining in the
    traditional Medicare program, or choosing a comparable private-sector
    insurance plan.

    The policy-wonk term for this approach is “competitive bidding,” an idea that
    originated with Democrats. The Wyden-Ryan plan is nearly identical to one
    that was introduced a few weeks earlier by Mitt Romney.

    The bottom line: if Romney and Ryan leave you the option to remain in the
    1965-vintage, fee-for-service, traditional Medicare program, and you claim
    that Medicare has “ended as we know it,” what you’ve really ended is the
    English language as we know it.

    try searching for yourself, it’s all out there..

    oh btw, didn’t you notice how red faced
    Krugman got telling his “un-truths”.. 😛
