Half Truths and Total Lies They Tell

1) Sarah Palin stopped the “Bridge to No Where”

2) Barak Obama sponsored a bill to promote sex education for kindergartners in Illinois.

3) Barak Obama will raise taxes

4) Barak Obama called Sarah Palin a “pig”

5) Sarah Palin sold the Governor’s jet on E-bay for profit.

Now the facts:

1) Sarah Palin was for the “Bridge to No Where” until CONGRESS pulled the plug on it and it became so unpopular in Alaska that it was prudent to put the final nail in its coffin.

(This from “their” own “Heritage Foundation”—a conservative think tank-- notice the absence of Sarah Palin’s name. )

And from St. Petersburg Times:

2) Barak Obama introduced legislation in the Illinois Legislature to protect Kindergartner’s from sexual predators. The legislation allowed local school boards to teach "age-appropriate" sex education, not comprehensive lessons to kindergartners, and it gave schools the ability to warn young children about inappropriate touching and sexual predators.

3) Both candidates seem to ignore the spiraling national debt but both will cut taxes for those making under $200,000, but Obama’s plan provides more tax relief for the lower, more middle class brackets, while raising taxes to Clinton levels for the far upper reaches of the income bracket. The Washington Post provides a good “snapshot” of tax proposals here:

4) See my last post….

5) The truth is that Palin couldn't find a buyer last year when she tried to peddle to plane on eBay - and lost the state money when she did sell it.

So now, when are we going to call these half-truths and lies what they are and start talking about the gloomy economy, the war on terrorism (which never was the war in Iraq), energy policy, health care and public education?

And what are "they" hiding with all of this distraction?
