Lies, Damned Lies, And Anything Mitch McConnell Says

"When they say this, what they REALLY mean is..........."

There are so many examples of predictable conservative rebuttles. The "what if" meme, the "gotcha" line that is supposed to help your preferred candidate when they flub an easy question - those are two easy ones that come to mind.

Then, there is this one from Kentucky's favorite screw-up, Mitch McConnell:

Oh, they are REALLY saying that "small businesses" are going to suffer? Really?

Wait a second. I think I see some facts over here that you missed.

Of course, they're not talking about small business. As CNN concluded in October, "fewer than 2% of small business owners would pay more under Obama's plan."

As it turns out, McConnell is merely parroting the same fraud now that John McCain tried to perpetrate then. Last fall, then Republican presidential candidate McCain attacked Obama, wrongly asserting, "The small businesses that we're talking about would receive an increase in their taxes right now." As it turned out, McCain's human shield and faux small business owner Joe "the Plumber" Wurzelbacher will receive a tax cut, and not an increase, under the just passed Obama stimulus package.
