You Only Lie When You’re Afraid

This Photoshop™ is the product of an idea floated by Mind Numbed Robot.  He emailed me requesting that I come up with a visual of the errand boy sent by grocery clerks as “Spendgali”—a spin-off of the fictional character, Svengali, in George du Maurier’s 1894 novel Trilby.
A Svengali is one who manipulates or controls another as by some mesmeric or sinister influence.
Over at Memeorandum there is a thread entitled, “Obama:  Public is ‘sold’ on tax increases in a debt-ceiling deal.”  I won’t call that a lie, but it just ain’t so.
The impudence of this president is staggering.  Not since the Carter Administration have we seen a Commander-in-Chief more out of touch with the people than this one.  Gallup says only 16 percent of Americans are satisfied with the direction that this regime is taking our great nation.
Proof that the Errand Boy is lying is found in the latest Rasmussen poll.  Most voters oppose including tax hikes in the deal. Just 34% think a tax hike should be included in any legislation to raise the debt ceiling. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 55% disagree and say it should not.

There is a huge partisan divide on the question. Fifty-eight percent (58%) of Democrats want a tax hike in the deal while 82% of Republicans do not. Among those not affiliated with either major political party, 35% favor a tax hike and 51% are opposed.

May we survive until January 20, 2013.

    Yes, let's all hope we survive until Jan. 20, 2013. There will be one helluva lame duck period from him, God knows what he'll do in that time, but that is definitely better than four more years.
