Obama critics really are the dumbest creatures on the planet. They resort to racist lies and think EVERYONE is as dumb as they are.


They really are desperate. Even though this program started in 1984 UNDER RONALD REAGAN, they can not resist.That would not play well with the STUPID Conservatives WHO ARE SPREADING THIS LIE. They hope they might get to one undecided voter and this LIE is as low and racist as they can get. Shame on the IGNORANT HATEFUL FOOLS who go around spreading this Garbage!


Is the Obama Phone Obama's doing?

No. The universal service requirement dates back at least to the Communications Act of 1934. The Lifeline program specifically was started in 1984 under President Reagan and was expanded in 1996 under President Clinton to allow qualifying households to choose to apply the benefit to either a landline or a cell phone. So no, it's not an Obama handout.

Shockingly, despite the bipartisan origins of the service, the idea of an 'Obama Phone' for the undeserving has existed for a long time. A couple email forwards, debunked by Snopes.com, were circulating in October 2009 and described poor people shamelessly showing off their free phones

Is the story about the Jewish Republican Coalition giving iPads to their anti-Obama phone bank volunteers a fake story too? Or is Drudge projecting? I mean, the "Obama, Oy Vey!" poster was one detail that makes me think the story was phony. Now, if it said, "We're not voting for the meshuggeneh schvartze," that I would believe was real.
