Conservative Talk: What did they say?
Tony Blankley | Frustrating, Stubborn Facts
The late, splendid Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan once famously asserted, “Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but not their own facts.” The senator was wrong. (Of course, for those of us who still believe that objectivity is objective, a fact is still a fact, though the heavens may fall.)
The key word here is “entitled.” In today’s entitlement-crazy Washington, not only do folks believe that about half the country is entitled to other people’s money and health insurance policies, they feel they are entitled to their own facts to support their claim to their own entitlement to other people’s money and health insurance policies.

Joseph Farah | Roe v. Obama, Pelosi, Reid et al.
Have you ever noticed the way certain people selectively apply what they claim as “constitutional rights”? This question occurred to me as I thought about the actions of the Congress and president last week. But before I get to that, a little background is in order.
Back in 1973, a Supreme Court at the height of its activist history wrestled with a constitutional justification for allowing the indiscriminate slaughter of unborn babies in the infamous Roe v Wade case.
“We, therefore, conclude that the right of personal privacy includes the abortion decision,” Justice Harry Blackmun wrote in the majority decision.
Search the Constitution as you might for the word privacy or any synonym and you will come up empty. But seven justices were determined to overturn duly enacted abortion laws throughout the United States, so they located this right in the due process clause. Ironically, it is the due process clause that forbids the taking of life, liberty or property without an impartial hearing. Yet, this decision ensured tens of millions of lives would be snuffed out with no due process. But the court found support for this “privacy” argument in the “penumbra” of the Bill of Rights.

Terence Jeffrey | Obama’s Defining Lie
History will remember how often and adamantly President Barack Obama insisted that the socialized medicine law he signed last week would reduce the federal deficit. It will be his defining lie.
“This legislation will also lower costs for families and for businesses and for the federal government, reducing our deficit by over $1 trillion in the next two decades,” Obama said when he signed the bill on March 23. “It is paid for; it is fiscally responsible.”
Two days later, he repeated the claim at the University of Iowa. “Costs will come down for families and businesses and the federal government, reducing our deficit by more than $1 trillion over the next two decades,” he said.
Americans wisely do not believe him. A Gallup poll released on Tuesday asked people whether the federal budget deficit would “get better, not change or get worse” as a result of Obamacare. Sixty-one percent said it would get worse, and 14 percent said it would not change.
An honest look at the Congressional Budget Office analysis of the total health care package backs the commonsense conclusion of the average American. Read the entire article HERE.
