    One of my Favorites:

    OBAMA: Drawing on classified information, he claimed more success than his predecessor at killing terrorists: "And in the last year, hundreds of al-Qaida's fighters and affiliates, including many senior leaders, have been captured or killed - far more than in 2008."

    THE FACTS: It is an impossible claim to verify. Neither the Bush nor the Obama administration has published enemy body counts, particularly those targeted by armed drones in the Pakistan-Afghan border region. The pace of drone attacks has increased dramatically in the last 18 months, according to congressional officials briefed on the secret program.

    2+2=4...FACT. What the hell does your fact (or mine, for that matter) have to do with the fact checked?

    Idiot.

    Doesn't Support his Specific Claim...

    Also he's not Devulging the "Facts" behind Innoncent Civilians he's Killed either...

    Convenient, that is.

    Remember that Line when (43) was in Office?... You Libs LOVED to Talk about the Innocent Civilians!...

    :)

    peace..

    I liked when he claimed outright that climate change was 'irrefutable' and basically called anyone who didn't think so flat earhers.

    Why don't you show us these 'irrefutable facts' facts Barry, you had your chance in denmark and like everything else you do, you fucked that up.
