The audacity of this charge was more than I could stand, so I wrote a piece for the American Spectator highlighting some of Obama’s whoppers. Here’s an excerpt:
Obama’s whoppers about McCain’s positions on health care, Social Security, and the mortgage crisis do not by any means exhaust his repertoire of mendacity. He still tells the stretcher about McCain’s willingness to stay in Iraq “for 100 years,” he hasn’t stopped misrepresenting the “$5 million” joke, and he continues to distort McCain’s positions on Afghanistan and immigration. Most ironically, he lambastes the Republican nominee for “lying.” Now that’s true audacity.
To read the rest of the article, go to here.
It would appear that Obama’s whoppers have been so brazen that even the NYT felt obligated to point them out:
Obama has released at least five commercials that have been criticized as misleading or untruthful against Mr. McCain’s positions in the past two weeks.
That’s pretty tepid stuff, of course, but its about as hard-hitting as the Grey Lady is likely to get where “The One” is concerned.
