WaPo: four Pinocchios are awarded for Mr. Obama’s latest fib. Yes, yes, Dear Leader recently claimed that Republicans in Congress had filibustered about 500 pieces of legislation that, by his reckoning, would have helped the middle class. The Post demonstrates rather convincingly that Obama’s number is inflated by at least a factor of 10.
That’s nothing new for the president, who has a penchant for making just about any assertion he goddamn pleases. We have this case, and then there’s the deception over the impact of sequestration, the repeated falsehoods used to sell Obamacare, the misleading statements about what happened at Benghazi, and the “smidgeonization” of the IRS targeting scandal. The list goes on and on, but the President’s keeps his nose in the air, and it’s safe to say he’s never met that blonde in the image above.
