AAOS: Obama Is Full Of Crap
"Where we do disagree, let's disagree over things that are real, not these wild misrepresentations that bear no resemblance to anything that's actually been proposed."
So sayeth the president, as quoted in The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons' answer to Obama's attack on their honor.
Can't wait for the next time Opey slanders an entire demographic.
The good news? He does it almost every day.

Placing the above statement in its broader context allows one to savor some of that sweet, sweet Obamalicious self-contradiction:
We are bound to disagree, but let’s disagree over issues that are real, and not wild misrepresentations that bear no resemblance to anything that anyone has actually proposed. This is a complicated and critical issue, and it deserves a serious debate.
I hear more and more stories like these every single day, and it is why we are acting so urgently to pass health-insurance reform this year.
This is a familiar Obama tactic. Give lip service through high sounding rhetoric about “serious debate”, but in reality be focused on “urgently pass[ing] health insurance this year” and avoiding debate. It is supposed to fool you into thinking he’s committed to debate while in reality he’s trying to push this legislation through as quickly as possible.
I have a gift, Harry.
