Obama’s 90 percent lie

Jay Carney, living in the delusional Obamerica, continues to spread the liberal lie:

The fact is, and I’ve noted it and the President noted it, and it is I think essential to recall that this is an issue that 90 percent of the American people support. It is an issue that 90 percent of Democrats voted for and one that 90 percent of Republicans voted against. So 90 percent of Republicans voted with 10 percent of the American people.

Really? From whence does that 90 percent number derive? Have you seen the data? I haven’t. In fact, nobody has. As AmmoLand correctly observes:

Nine out of ten Americans wouldn’t agree if it was partly sunny or partly cloudy on any given day.

As I’ve written before, Gallup found that only 4 percent of Americans even think that guns/gun control is one of the nation’s top problems.

Don Roberts goes through the ways that the progressives manipulate use to spread lies: asking leading questions, carefully selecting the responders, using a small sample sizes, and hiring a disreputable polling company that majors in manipulation. All this adds up to a recipe for tyranny by tailored propaganda.

As Mark Twain wrote in his autobiography:

Figures often beguile me, particularly when I have the arranging of them myself; in which case the remark attributed to Disraeli would often apply with justice and force: “There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies and statistics.

Saul Alinsky is undoubtedly proud of Obama and his other students.
