Obama begins to lie

You will do what he says and not look at what he does!

Obama on the campaign trail has repeatedly called for a change in the way Washington does business.  It seems he is not the one to be able to deliver that change as he begins to lie about Senator McCain’s positions.

As Charles Krauthammer explains, McCain’s “100 years” comment has been grossly misquoted and interpreted.  McCain said troops could stay in Iraq for 100 years so long as they are not in harm’s way. 

Obama, who has complained that people have only heard 30 second sound bites of Rev. Wright’s speeches, has this to say of Senator McCain’s foreign policy:

— “He (McCain) says that he is willing to send our troops into another 100 years of war in Iraq” (Barack Obama, Feb. 19).

— “We are bogged down in a war that John McCain now suggests might go on for another 100 years” (Obama, Feb. 26). 

It would seem rather hypocritical of Obama on one hand to complain about a twisted sound bite, and then use a twisted sound bite to malign his opponent.  That seems to be, as they say, business as usual in Washington.

Does this mean Obama will vote for who he considers honorable, if it is not himself?

Senator McCain actually has generally operated in an honorable way” – Barack Obama, 3/20/08.

    Comparing two random quotes. Such is the joys of quote mining—aka “how to make anyone look like a double-crossing flip-flopper”.
