If You Want People To Stop Calling You A Liar

You need to stop telling lies.

Sen. John McCain’s top campaign aides convened a conference call today to
complain of being called “liars.” They pressed the media to scrutinize specific
elements of
Sen. Barack Obama’s record.

But the call was so rife with simple, often inexplicable misstatements of fact
that it may have had the opposite effect: to deepen the perception, dangerous to
McCain, that he and his aides have little regard for factual

My brother says that if enough people tell you that you look sick you should probably lie down. I think McCampaign needs a timeout.

Your own VP says that Obama attack ads towards McCain are over the line.

But then you would not be worried about that would you?

Over the line is not the same as making stuff up, Fred.

Please buzz in on a new question.

Making stuff up...

Obama saying McCain has done nothing to stop the current economic mess.

McCain offered reform legislation 3 years ago to reform Freddy & Fannie. Democrats blocked it. What did Obama do, took the second most money from them only being outdone by Chairman Dodd...

Chew on that.

You mean Senator McCain who has surrounded himself with the author of the repeal of the protections in place since the 30's and a Fannie Mae lobbyist as well as being one of the Keating Five holdouts from the S&L Bailout? Is that the reformer you're trying to sell America now?

Do you have some kind of proof, even to your minuscule standards, of an Obama quid pro quo? Or are you just swinging stuff up against the wall to see which sticks this week?

Again, Fred. Steve Schmidt got caught lying while he was whining about being called a liar. The man can't help himself.

Stay on topic.

Have a banana, Fred. It's good for your health.

Sorry for going off-topic, Grumps. I'm just concerned about Fred.
