THE “TRAIL OF TALL TALES”

Posted by PrestoPundit on 05/23/2008

— Fox News makes a weak effort to document some of the “misstatements, prevarications and falsehoods” of Barack Obama, and comes up with a list of eight clear and documented cases of Obama bullshit.  Here are two of the most telling Obama lies:


Non-truth
: During campaign speeches, Obama frequently makes the
contention that “I’m the only candidate who doesn’t take money from
corporate PACs and lobbyists.”

Truth: Obama has raised nearly $14 million from lawyers and
lobbyists. In October, Obama raised about $125,000 at a fundraising
event in the Washington offices of Greenberg Traurig, the law firm that
once employed convicted lobbyist Jack Abramoff.

Non-truth: He wrote [in his autobiography, “Dreams From My Father”] that when he was 9 years old, living in
Indonesia, he flipped through Life magazine and read an article about a
black man who had scarred and ruined his skin applying chemicals that
promised to make his skin white. “I imagine other black children, then
and now, undergoing similar moments of revelation,” he wrote.

Truth: No article or pictures exist of any such story, according to Life historians.
