Obama wins liar of the year from Politifact

LINK

quote:

"If you like your health care plan, you can keep it," President Barack Obama said -- many times -- of his landmark new law.

But the promise was impossible to keep.

So this fall, as cancellation letters were going out to approximately 4 million Americans, the public realized Obama’s breezy assurances were wrong.


quote:

Obama and his team made matters worse, suggesting they had been misunderstood all along. The stunning political uproar led to this: a rare presidential apology.

For all of these reasons, PolitiFact has named "If you like your health care plan, you can keep it," the Lie of the Year for 2013. Readers in a separate online poll overwhelmingly agreed with the choice.

Obama must lie because his entire foundation is filled with nothing but air, held up by media-built stilts.

Of the YEAR?

That's it?

How about the biggest liar of the last 50 YEARS.


This morons entire life is just one big lie. If the uninformed voter knew who this clown really was, he couldn't be elected dog-catcher outside of New York City, Vermont, San Francisco or Los Angeles. And, if we had a real media, and not the DNC's propaganda machine, people would know.

Complete joke of an organization. As one said, politifact is a hemorrhoid on the arse of truth.

From HP...

quote:

PolitiFact is often criticized for its fact-checking methodology, and some noted that it had rated previous statements by Obama along similar lines as "half true."


What fact checking did they have to do in order to dub this "lie of the year"?

Woke up to reality and realized that they couldn't keep up the charade, I suppose.

which would be hilarious because they routinely go easy on Democratic statements. Like labeling obama promises as "stalled" even though they have been defeated by Congress. Or, originally saying that Obama's promise "you can keep you insurance" wasn't a lie but labeled it as "half-true" only because insurance companies could still cancel your policy.

I loathe politifact.
