Among the canards promulgated by Barack Obama’s increasingly desperate presidential campaign is that John McCain has gone through a sudden and shocking metamorphosis. The ”once-principled” Republican (i.e. one willing to supinely accept defeat) has somehow become a pathological liar.
This nonsense is, of course, being robotically repeated by all of the usual Obamatons. Yet, with the laudable exception of Andrew Sullivan, none of these people seem to notice any of Obama’s stretchers. Nonetheless, they are there for those who have eyes to see.
Among the most brazen of Obama’s whoppers is the one he keeps telling about McCain’s health care plan. He is aggressively peddling the false claim that McCain wants to tax everyone’s health benefits. Not even CBS News could let that pass. In the following segment, they provide the facts:
As the report points out, McCain’s plan would actually result on a tax
So, the bottom line is that Barack Obama is deliberately and repeatedly lying about McCain’s health care plan. Unfortunately, only a few observers are pointing out the truth, and a lot of people who normally don’t fall for this kind of BS have swallowed this particular canard.
But, hey, I’m sure all those righteous souls who seem sooooooo outraged by McCain’s dastardly lies will sound the alarm on Obama’s prevarications as well, right?
