Argument From False Authority – Or as it is known at my house, the Michelle Obama Is A Lying Bitch argument

Here we go:

First Lady Michelle Obama Thursday suggested Republicans are engaged in rampant lying as they debate the issues with President Obama.

“People have to stay focused on what’s going on, because it’s easy to get confused in all the back and forth that goes on, and there’s a whole lot of not-truth telling going on, if you know what I mean,” Michelle said during a radio appearance on the The Tom Joyner Show.

Mrs. Obama also charged that voter suppression during the 2012 election was widespread.

Michelle said Republicans sought to win the election by spending “unprecedented amounts of money,” running negative advertising, and committing voter suppression.

“Voter suppression was in full force in so many states all over this country,” Mrs. Obama said.

She says: “Republicans sought to win the election by spending “unprecedented amounts of money,” running negative advertising, and committing voter suppression.”

Republicans were outspent Democrats handily according to HuffPo:

Last Thursday, the final round of 2012 campaign finance reports were filed to the FEC, giving observers a complete picture as to what each side spent and prioritized during the process. The Huffington Post examined data going back to Jan. 1, 2011, looking at the figures from the Obama and Romney campaigns, each candidate’s respective Victory Fund, the Republican National Committee and the Democratic National Committee and their respective independent expenditure and coordinated expenditure arms.

The breakdown of top expenditures is below:

Payroll:
Republicans: $33.3 million
Democrats: $63.2 million

Television/Radio ads:
Republicans: $215 million
Democrats: $412 million

Television/ Radio ads, including “Media Production” and “Placement” services:
Republicans: $270 million
Democrats: $420 million

Online ads:
Republicans: $100.6 million
Democrats: $118.1 million

Telemarketing:
Republicans: $74.5 million
Democrats: $35.2 million

Fundraising Consulting/Services:
Republicans: $31 million
Democrats: $6.5 million

Polling:
Republicans: $19.3 million
Democrats: $32.1 million

Total Operating Expenditures
Republicans: $885.6 million
Democrats: $919.3 million

So let’s do talk about who “bought” the election – and this doesn’t include the cost of all those “official” trips on Air Force One that mysteriously landed where there was an Obama campaign event scheduled.

I do not apologize for calling this two bit mooching race hustler a “bitch”. If she has no more respect for the truth than this, the term “lying bitch” is pretty accurate.
