Why is it so hard for the press to say McCain/Palin are lying?

    Biden was referring to a series of attack ads from the McCain campaign as well as misstatements that the Republican presidential candidate and running mate Sarah Palin have continued to repeat after they were debunked.

    Here let me make it easy for you AP. Instead of using a 19 word euphemism you can use one word: lying. Was that so hard?

    I'm so sick of this partisan mud slinging and frankly Mr.Obama needs to get a grip since the biggest lie to date came from his mouth when he touted he was for change and now conducts a campaign that is par for the course garbage.

    Both tickets are flawed, Obama's is especially distasteful.

    I don't think Obama has gone nearly as far as McCain. McCain said Obama wanted to teach sex ed to kindergartners when it was actually a course to teach kids to protect themselves from sexual predators. McCain has been far more sleazy than Obama in this campaign. Its not even close.

    Ice, can we agree that this particular article does not represent the substantive discussion of issues that you and I are seeking?;)

    Maybe the press is afraid of O'Reilly because he said anyone who goes after Palin basically without reason is someone he will go after.

    All kidding aside, yeah she is full of it and stretching the truth, but hell, they all do so that just makes her normal

    They all do, but not nearly as much as McCain/Palin have been doing it after they have been disproven numerous times.

    They all do it. Obama has done it. Just look to factcheck.org and see it.

    Oddly enough I thought it was funny that factcheck.org made some statements, the McCain/Palin campaign used it WRONGLY, factcheck.org criticized them for it saying they were still wrong and yet their campaign went and sent out a letter to people saying the same thing after they have been proven wrong for using factcheck.org and manipulating them.

    Gotta love politics.

    I know Obama has done it, but McCain/Palin takes lying to a whole other level. As you have just pointed out.

    And Obama has said that Palin cut Special Ed funds as Govenor of Alaska even though her child is Downs Syndrome...

    She actually increased it...

    Saying one lies and the other side "doesn't do it as much" is shillish. "Sure... he's a crook... but he's MY crook"... :rolleyes:

    They both lie beyond measure...

    Can you help me find the source where Obama said that Palin cut special ed? The most I've heard is Biden saying why is she against stem cell which is similarly in that vein.

    Sure... let me look it up...

    I've heard it all over the place but if I don't get it back to you in an hour or so, I apologize. I'm in the area where Ike hit and I just got off of 26 hours yesterday. I wish my dogs understood this... ;)

    At least I am off for the next twelve and my own power is restored and I can see the game...

    What's more important than watching the Cowboy game... ;)

    To be honest I'm just hoping I can stay awake long enough to see the whole thing...

    Actually, for me, more than the fact that he attended the racist pastors church... more than that is... we are supposed to believe he wasnt there on the days that the pastor said the racist, hateful things.

    We are dumb according to Obama. That bothers me more than the fact that he attended the church.

    Sorry, my Austin friend, but the sex ed dismissal as a "sex predator prevention program" is a lie. Not saying you're the one coming up with it, but you're repeating what you've read. That was Obama talking points. The text of the bill has since surfaced - and viola! it's comprehensive sex ed for K-12. It was not a sex predator prevention program. Obama even admitted as much on TV, albeit when he was running against Allen Keyes.
