Republican Flier Says Sandy Was Probably Caused by the Deficit, Somehow

Posted by on Wed, Oct 31, 2012 at 7:59 AM

BuzzFeed links to a PDF of an anti-Obama flier that started showing up in Virginia yesterday. Using storm imagery to illustrate a political issue not even a day after Sandy made landfall? Stay classy, super PACs.

Unfounded Republican smears against Obama always remind me of Monty Python. "She turned me into a newt! ............. I got better.":

Oh please Paul. It's a tasteless shitty flyer, but pretty clearly says that debt is just like a hurricane, not that it caused it.

Your bush league political blogging continues to annoy the shit out of me.

Obama promised to lower the debt and control spending.

That's the debt the republicans racked up with two wars, tax cuts, and extra medicare goodies for old people.

Republicans were more than happy to put these on the national credit card when Bush was in office. Then when a democrat got in, they decided they didn't want to pay it AND blamed the democrats for running out without paying the bill.

AND... Spending in Obama's term has remained pretty stagnant. All you have to do is look at the facts. Republicans, of course, just ignore the facts and lie to everyone that under Obama spending has increased. Not even trying to hedge it a little... they're just flat out lying.

And how do republican voters respond to this? They change the subject.

This is precisely what we should expect out of Super PACs, on either side of the aisle. They don't even have to disclose who they are, what makes anyone think they'll remotely stick to the truth?
