The Washington Post doesn’t call it lying. They use the more nuanced claim by Duncan not backed by evidence
In other words, he lied.
The descriptions of the post-sequester landscape that have been coming out of the Obama Administration have been alarming, specific–and, in at least some cases, hyped.
“There are literally teachers now who are getting pink slips, who are getting notices that they can’t come back this fall,” Education Secretary Arne Duncan said Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”
When he was pressed in a White House briefing Wednesday to come up with an example, Duncan named a single county in West Virginia and acknowledged, “whether it’s all sequester-related, I don’t know.”
And, as it turns out, it isn’t.
Officials in Kanawha County, West Virginia say that the “transfer notices” sent to at least 104 educators had more to do with a separate matter that involves a change in the way West Virginia allocates federal dollars designated for poor children.
There was also no need for Obama to release criminal illegal aliens, but he did anyway. He wants mayhem so he can blame Republicans. He’ll be happy for people to be murdered by criminal illegals so he can point the finger of blame. That’s how he rolls. He wants his own sequester to tank the economy so he can blame Republicans. We hope people have figured this out by now.
