Robert Gibbs: Paul Ryan Is Going to Kill My Father or Something

Posted by on Aug 13, 2012 at 1:02 pm

Man, this is only day three and Paul Ryan is already coming for the elderly. It’s pretty low to shield yourself behind your sick father, but this is a scumbag Obama adviser we’re talking about here. These people are absolute sociopaths.

Former White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said that Paul Ryan’s Medicare reform would hurt his father who survived lung cancer — an attack that unfortunately echoes the Obama super PACs suggestion that Mitt Romney caused a woman to die of cancer.

“You’re going to hand out vouchers to seniors . . . you’re going to hand one to my father who is 83, who is a lung cancer survivor and has far different medical needs than his former White House staffing son does at 41.” Gibbs told MSNBC’s Chuck Todd.

Todd corrected Gibbs — “Republicans would say, ‘your father’s not going to get that, because they wouldn’t do anything [to his Medicare]‘” — but the former White House aide chose to suggest that Ryan is lying about his intentions for Medicare.

“I wouldn’t trust Republicans on Medicare as far as I could throw them,” Gibbs said.

They know the facts and that is Ryan will reform Medicare, not steal $700 billion from it like his boss Obama.

    Spot on Jammie. Look at how the DNC chair spins it. (link above) Good article below the videos.
    Bad enough they are lying to Republican, Independent, libertarian, what have you voters..but they are lying to
    Grandma and their own supporters. So revolting.
    Trusting someone as far as you can throw them…do we trust these kinds of lying dirt-bags?

    I’ve seen crap like this before. When Ohio’s Governor closed one of 12 MR/DD institutions to make the system more efficient and focused, and save money to use for less costly, high quality home-care and family support, while beefing up the support for the most medically fragile residents, THE Union called up all the Moms and Dads and got them to come to a Rally on the Statehouse Lawn by telling them that All the Institutions that their ‘kids’ were living in were being closed…a blatant lie. The Union Stewards wore sandwich boards with this lie painted on it. When I asked a steward what it meant, he didn’t even know how to explain what MR/DD meant, much less explain how he got the crazy idea that the closing was only one of 12.
