Since then, some conservatives have drawn attention to the distortion, and Obama’s been a bit more careful with his language. Today, for instance, he said: “We can’t afford to stay in Iraq, like John McCain said, for another hundred years.” It’s technically true that McCain said that, but Obama’s clear goal in phrasing it that way was to imply, falsely, that McCain wants the war to continue for that long. In other words, he’s gone from lying about what McCain said to being deeply misleading about it. Progress, of a kind. Still, some outlets continue to portray the issue as a he-said, she-said spat.Gee, B. Hussein Obama is just another lying LibDem. Imagine that. So much for all that talk of "change" and "an end to old style politics and in with a new kind of politics blahblah". Sure sounds like the same old to me. Wake up, idiots.
Low class by Obama, in my honest opinion.
Here's another Obama distortion:In a new ad, Obama says, "I don’t take money from oil companies."Technically, that's true, since a law that has been on the books for more than a century prohibits corporations from giving money directly to any federal candidate. But that doesn’t distinguish Obama from his rivals in the race.We find the statement misleading:Obama has accepted more than $213,000 from individuals who work for companies in the oil and gas industry and their spouses. Two of Obama's bundlers are top executives at oil companies and are listed on his Web site as raising between $50,000 and $100,000 for the presidential hopeful. Note: This is a summary only.
