Obama embraces the Big Lie

Senator McCain quoted verifiable facts and Barak H. Obama denied them, bold faced lying to the American people.

Ed Morrissey has details:

MCCAIN: Well, again, while you were on the board of the Woods Foundation, you and Mr. Ayers, together, you sent $230,000 to ACORN. So — and you launched your political campaign in Mr. Ayers’ living room.

OBAMA: That’s absolutely not true.

MCCAIN: And the facts are facts and records are records.

OBAMA: And that’s not the facts.

Unfortunately for Obama, those are the facts, both about Ayers and ACORN. Obama paid ACORN over $800,000 this summer for GOTV efforts, which Obama now denies, although he did finally admit that he represented ACORN as an attorney in a lending-practices case. Obama did launch his career at a party hosted by Ayers, which is such a matter of public record that I’m frankly surprised he bothered to deny it.

That is verifiable lie number one by Obama.

#2 was on the abortion issue.

Why is Barak Obama trying to hide his past? What is he afraid of the American people finding?

Update: Cold Fury has the facts on Obama's abortion votes that he lied to the American people about.
