The Lie of the Great American Hero

This week, Presidential candidate Michele Bachmann stuck at least one of what seems to be an inexhaustible supply of feet in her mouth.

Why Won’t Republicans Discuss Raising Taxes?

Why Won’t Republicans Discuss Raising Taxes?

Why won’t Republicans discuss raising tax revenues in their budget talks? There is an obvious, but overlooked answer. It’s not that the Republicans stand for lower taxes and smaller government, as they once did. But rather their reason is much more childish, simplistic, and sinister.

If you were watching the Republican Presidential Candidates debate last week, you probably heard Michelle Bachmann state repeatedly that she personally has raised 23 foster children. This is more than just stretching the truth, it is an outright lie. Some of the foster children she took in were only in her care for a week.
