    Are you really trying to make an "our attack ads are more truthful than your attack ads" argument?

    Neither of those ads has any actual "truth" to them.

    No actual truth to them?

    Are you saying that unemployment, the debt, and gas prices are actually lower since Obama took office?

    Well, no. I apologize if the subtleties of my wording escaped you, but I was commenting on the differences between "truth" and "factual", and discussing the fact that while TV ads almost never "lie", they never tell "the truth".

    If it makes you feel better to believe that somehow, Crossroads GPS's ads are "more truthful", by all means, go ahead. I'm not really interested in partisan nonsense like that.

    Of course you aren't, you are only interested in partisanship you like.

    I think I made it clear that I think that both sides are equally full of shit when it comes to campaign ads.
