Since Chuck Todd has declared that anything that gets blurted out of a Republican’s mouth must be reported, verbatim, by him, and then his job is to report when Obama “messages” against it, here are two lies that are truths until Obama says they aren’t:
- Bill Clinton disarmed guards at military bases, which made the Navy Yard a gun-free zone. (This lie references a Washington Times editorial about an Army regulation that keeps soldiers from bringing their personal guns on base. That regulation was put into place in 1992 by the George HW Bush administration. Not to mention that the one of the questions rolling around about the shooter is whether he killed a guard and took that guard’s pistol.)
- Warren Buffett opposes Obamacare. (This is based on a quote during the Obamacare debate where Buffet was advocating for changes to the bill, “reported” by the Daily Caller, unsurprisingly. Buffet has issued a statement saying he supports Obamacare today.)
Obama’s going to be very busy man, at least in Chuck Todd’s fantasyland.
