No lies edgewise
Well, maybe that is a bit hyperbolic. But these guys use truth only as a club and switch from truth to lie in the same sentence with complete fluency.
My current favorite hate commercial is the one from American Crossroads about how, "Obama promised us that his stimulus plan would bring unemployment down to 6.3%."
True? Partially: Obama did say 6.3% in a speech in 2009, before he assumed office. But that 6.3% was dependent on his stimulus plan, which the Republicans fought tooth and toenail to keep from being passed...and finally did block most of it.
So let's get this straight: The Republicans would not let him do his stimulus plan, but he's responsible for it not working!? No, he's not responsible...and saying he is has to be one of the biggest lies I've ever heard. (It's the big black one above).
