One of the continuing lies from the Republicans and Teabaggers is that President Obama bailed out the banks. Uh, TARP was passed on October 3, 2008 and signed by President Bush. According to my memory, President Obama wasn’t even elected until November 4, 2008. The Republicans and their lap-dog media just continues to imply that President Obama is responsible for the bailout. I’d bet 95% of the teabaggers believe that wholeheartedly. No surprise there though, they ARE more educated and wealthier, right?
Do you suppose these folks know that it was George W. Bush who passed the TARP bill? I don’t think so. The Republicans have become very good at spreading lies and misinformation and it’s hard for us liberals to keep up with shooting them down. There is so much of it out there, it’s no wonder that the American people are so confused over what is real and what is a product of Frank Luntz’s crafty word games. I know I’m trying to do my part in shining a light on this bullshit.
