More From The - Lie Of The Day Archives
Lie: I'm not a big fan of the Obamas.
--Meghan McCain, who will take every opportunity she has to praise the president and put down conservatives.
Lie: And more preposterous, which is that the president's policies have made the recession worse.
--David Axelrod defending policies that have provided us with a non-existent recovery.
Lie: Quite frankly, the collection of Republicans that are running for president really are pretty unremarkable. They all embrace extremism.
--DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz. This "extremism" is what the American people sided with in 2010, and the only thing unremarkable about the 2012 election is Obama's list of accomplishment.
Lie: I have an obligation as President to do what I can without them.
--President Obama. No, you have an obligation to defend the Constitution, not to do whatever you want.
Lie: That was one of the most ungracious moments in politics.
--Former Bush Press Secretary Ari Fleischer on Newt's speech in Iowa last night. It wasn't ungracious, it was Newt letting his supporters know he is in this fight for the long haul.
Lie: If there is anyone who has set an example about making sure that we reduce the influence of lobbyists and of corporate and outside special interests on campaigns it is President Obama.
--DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, apparently forgetting about Obama taking more money from Wall Street than any politician in history.
Lie: You know: detached or Spock-like or very analytical. I think that's a misconception about me
--President Obama talking about a misconception people may have of him. Right, because taking a two week, $4 million vacation to Hawaii doesn't show any detachment from the American people
Lie: You have to wonder whether some folks over there [In the GOP] think somehow screwing up the economy, throwing a wrench in the works is a good political strategy for them.
--Obama senior adviser David Axelrod who cannot believe that there are people who disagree with him and the president on the issues.
Lie: Taxes are not being paid at the top.
--Robert Reich ignoring the fact that the top 10% of earners pay 71% of the taxes.
