No Sense Of Satire Or Their Own Position

Once again, Fox"Nation" relies on a truncated clip from a larger discussion, coupled with a healthy dose of misleading reporting to suggest that Paul Krugman is calling for a government oversight panel to decide who lives and who dies.

However, even within the clip that they chose to highlight, it's clear that Krugman is openly mocking the idea.

I find it rather interesting that while conservatives continually call for the Medicare program to either be overhauled or completely dismantled aren't seen as a "death panel" in and of themselves.

Tea Bagger astroturfer Dick Armey says the program is tyranny.

Prominent Fox"News" personalities, most notably Hannity and Beck, have nothing but disdain and contempt for what Medicare is. And these are the same men that pushed the "death panel" meme nightly prior to passage of healthcare reform.

Even Tea Bagger favorite Sean "I'm A Lumberjack And I'm OK" Duffy called for Medicare to be dismantled.

I just don't see the logic in being against reforming Medicare and then shouting "death panels" when you want to do away with the program all together. Do these people not realize that many elderly Americans rely on Medicare?

This is what happens when you try to play both ends of the spectrum, you end up looking like you don't know what you're doing.
