SCoaMF Lying While Accusing His Opponents of Lying

Because, what else can he do at this point? It’s not like the truth is going to help him and it’s not as if he has any accomplishments to run on.

Mr. Obama this week, for the first time, entered the fray. Campaigning on Tuesday on college campuses in Iowa and Colorado, he told thousands of supporters not to believe the opposition’s attacks because, “how do I put this nicely? They will just fib.” On Wednesday in Charlottesville, Va., he ramped up his complaint, winning applause from the estimated 6,500 people.

“Sometimes they just make things up. But they’ve got a bunch of folks who can write $10 million checks, and they’ll just keep on running them,” he said. “I mean, somebody was challenging one of their ads — they made it up — about work and welfare. And every outlet said this is just not true. And they were asked about it and they said — one of their campaign people said, ‘We won’t have the fact-checkers dictate our campaign. We will not let the truth get in the way.’”

Here’s what “one of their campaign people” actually did say:

What Mr. Newhouse actually said was, “These fact-checkers come to those ads with their own sets of thoughts and beliefs. We’re not going to let our campaign be dictated by fact-checkers.”

Erm, oops.

But at least we know now exactly where Deej got his exact talking points from when he used the exact same line as Jugears in an earlier thread.

Quoth he:

One of the most ironic statements made by the Romney campaign came out yesterday: “We’re not going to let our campaign be dictated by fact checkers” Translation: “yeah, we are lying, but some people will believe us”.

Sounds awful familiar all of a sudden, doesn’t it?

Oh, and for those still wondering why we don’t give a flying fuck what PolitiFucked.org says about “facts”, go ye and read.

Thatisall.

John Nolte at Big Journalism has done an excellent job of compiling the bias of the so-called ‘Fact Check’ orgs. Like Politifact rating it a lie when Mitt Romney said a President who had never been to Israel…..had never been to Israel.

That actually happened.

But hey, HERE is a fucking topic you should expand upon: Can anyone here articulate what exactly a Mittens Presidency is going to do? I don’t mean generalizations, I want DETAILS. C’mon, my gullible friends, , tell me what Mitten’s “PLANS” actually are. Start here. Click on the issues tab and just follow along. C’mon Tech Wizard, this should have… Read more »

Emperor Misha I says: A fair point. My first problem with PolitiFucked was that, if they are truly unbiased and are to be believed, Republicans lie 9 times more than Democrats. That alone ought to make eyebrows lift. Thank you sir, I appreciate that you answered my question and did not interpret it as a “gotcha” question because that was… Read more »

The biggest problem I can see with politics these days is that people are too polarized to either the left or the right that we often miss the opportunities where the left and the right can compromise. The real problem is the inherent nature of politics in that it is very much personalized. Like the old adage goes, Politics and… Read more »

@ Southern lib

Do you consider yourself to be a “average” voter? My perception is that most average voters don’t even know a third party exists.

I’m voting for Romeny for one primary reason, he’s not a MARXIST, and Romney represents the only VIABLE oppotunity to get the Marxist in the White House out.

I’m not a fan of Obama but I have yet to see much from Mittens that will convince me that he is going to be different or better. Look at their pasts and compare and contrast. I’m no Romney fanboy and I’ve said and written some pretty nasty things about him. As I learn more about him I think I… Read more »

Hey hey, back up that truck a bit. I most definitely DO have clothes, it’s just that I don’t always wear them!
