OMG Obama Is The BIGGEST LIAR OF ALL TIME!!!

The AP really need to get over themselves…

Once again, Republican shills at the Associated Press, on the day after our president gave what is universally recognized as one of the greatest and most important addresses of the past 100 years, launch a nit-picking fusillade of hair splitting, distortions, and outright lies.

Get this for the AP’s idea of just how bone-headed Obama’s speech really was:

OBAMA: “And I believe the nation that invented the automobile cannot walk away from it.”

THE FACTS: Depends what your definition of automobiles, is. According to the Library of Congress, the inventor of the first true automobile was probably Germany’s Karl Benz, who created the first auto powered by an internal combustion gasoline engine, in 1885 or 1886. In the U.S., Charles Duryea tested what library researchers called the first successful gas-powered car in 1893. Nobody disputes that Henry Ford created the first assembly line that made cars affordable.

Well, gee, if Obama can’t tell the truth about who invented the automobile, what else will he lie about?  I don’t know how I can ever trust him now.

Seriously, that has got to be one of the lamest, most desperate gotchas ever.  I’d laugh at that one even if they were calling President Bush or (shudder) President McCain on it.

If you read the rest of the diary, it sounds like the car thing might actually be the highlight of the story…

    I heard that same “fact check” on NPR, CNN, and MSNBC.

    That sound you hear is the furious scraping of the bottom of the “gotcha” barrel.

    I only read through maybe a quarter of the comments at the DKos diary, but it doesn’t look like they discussed anything other than the car question. The AP article made a somewhat specious point about the mortgage relief “plan”, and a couple of valid ones on other issues. Why they led with the car one, I don’t know. Sounds like a really bad editorial decision, but they may have thought that since it was the most obviously wrong one, it should lead.

    Obama was wrong about something that wasn’t terribly important, or he wasn’t clear enough. He should perhaps have been more careful, but at this point if that’s the worst thing he does or says in office it would be the best Administration in my lifetime.

    don’t even need gotchas for obama. his lies pour out smoothly and effortlessly. anyone with a brain who followed his campaign, knows that his rhetoric is just a device he uses to accomplish his ends. whether his words are lies or not doesnt factor in as long as he acheives his goals. read saul alinsky.
