Weiner repeats silly claim that he coined the term ‘Obamacare’ (also he tweets like a teenage girl)

Serial TwitterPerv and New York mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner is back on the Twitters and in rare form. Today he’s repeating his earlier claim that he coined the term “Obamacare,” and since he also says that the program is going to make Americans’ lives better, it’s two lies for the price of one!

The New York Times article he tweeted, which claimed that New Yorkers’ premiums would fall by as much as 50%, was taken down hard by Avik Roy at National Review Online.

As for the claim about coining “Obamacare,” Weiner was far from the first person ever to use the term, and he had to walk back that claim last month. Of course, the term was coined by opponents of the proposal, and Weiner was merely among the first leftists to adopt it as his own.  So, somewhere in the back of Weiner-mind, to “coin” a term means something other than to “invent” it.

Granted, given what we know about what else comes out of his brain, we probably shouldn’t be surprised that he wants to rewrite the English language.

Also, can we just point out that a man who wants to lead America’s largest city just used “Ya know” and “Hehe” in a tweet? Seriously?

A lot of the Twitter reaction is about what you would expect.

In conclusion, can we note that, if this man is elected, we will have to do posts like this for the rest of his term. Spare us, New York voters! Please!

    Did he invent the internet too?

    • CatHerder

      No, he just perverted it.

    • ObamaFail

      Now you know as well as the rest of the world that it was Al Gore who invented the internet.

      • DrSamHerman

        Not to mention his extensive knowledge of masseuses.

    If he wins, I’ll publicly invite Iran & NK to test their nukes in mid-town. #NYIsDead2Me

      Just be sure to give the NYPost advance warning.

      New Yorkers deserve what they get if they re-elected this pathological LIAR again! How can they even consider it?

  • The Penguin

    Wow! Could at least make it “somewhat believable”, but the more outrageous the crap they throw, the more these lefty’s buy into it.
    So the delay in implementation was so the Dem’s running for office (which was obvious to anyone “without” their head up their ass) can lie about Obamacare and say it will be cheaper than current insurance premiums, and lest we forget, the abortion that is the immigration bill, get elected, or re-elected, and the left sheep can’t see this from a mile away. They will be hit too and don’t even realize it. And of course, once the “real” costs hit It’ll be too late. Good strategy. This country is scayrewed people. No wonder the rest of the world is f*cking laughing at us. We let this happen. I’m gonna go repeatedly throw-up now.

    With Weiner, Spitzer and Bloomburg . . . I’m really surprised that city can remain afloat.

    • Jeremy

      Spitzer will always be Client #9,Bloomberg a nanny POS and Weiner is a Weiner.

  • logicrules

    Isn’t that like bragging that you designed the Yugo?

      After drawing up the plans for the Hindenburg.

    I actually believe the term ‘Douche-Canoe’ was coined specifically FOR Anthony Weiner.

    • Michael Burch

      how could any woman stayed married to this pervert..

  • TocksNedlog

    Better that he tweet ‘like a teenage girl’ than he tweet TO a teenage girl . . . again.

  • waterytart

    We all know what he thinks with, but if my memory serves me correctly, the Dems HATED that term to the point of saying that iT was–(all together now)-RACIST.

    • operanerd1986

      I remember that! They found the term horribly offensive and tried to stop people from using it. The Democrats embraced the label only after it became clear that people would always call the bill Obamacare anyway.

    • tops116

      Good memory. My, how the times change.


    I’m pretty sure the term “creepy-ass cracker” was coined FOR Anthony Weiner. Seriously, why must these pervs resurface?

  • Magnifico

    He invented the internet, too……so that he could send pictures of his Weiner.

  • I M Free

    That’s a ‘Complete Package Weiner’

  • tops116

    I’ll give him this much: Weiner might be the only Democrat on the electoral chopping block willing to embrace Obamacare. Not exactly seeing much of that lately, right, Senators Baucus, Levin and Rockefeller?

    Though why do I get the feeling if Obamacare drags down his electoral chances, Weiner will claim his account was hacked… again?

  • Spasmolytic

    For all the liberals who support Weiner, would you want him anywhere near your teenage daughter?

    • Michael Burch


    • ltgreen

      Hahahahaha! What makes it even worse is that he’s HIGHLY unattractive. Silly, I know.

  • Michael Burch

    Is weiner…. gores love child…they are both crazy,and perverted

  • stillinthe60s

    Guess Wiener is trying to Pinocchio a body part but doesn’t realize it would be his nose.
