    Your fear is duly noted!

    Seriously, I have to keep asking, why do we not see these fear screeds about Mitt Romney from our resident liberals?

    Perhaps because Mitt could actually pull some moderate Dem votes and win. Perry cannot.

    after Obama purposefully tries to pass an insane jobs bill the left is going to accuse fiscally responsible conservatives of obstruction to progress ...the left wing liars are then going to try to dump all their failures on the republicans!! A black man blaming republican whiteys for his mistakes......GO FIGURE!!:doubt:

    I am wondering where all these fact checkers were when Obama was not vetted by the press in 2008 or currently?

    Wonder no more. Politifact was awarded a Pulitzer prize for their fact-checking in the 2008 campaign. That included two "pants on fire ratings" for Obama, for his ad tying McCain to Rush Limbaugh and for his claim that "100%" of McCain's ads had been negative.

    Note also that the original posters link only finds the Perry claims rated "false" (the second-worst rating). All of Perry's claims investigated by Politifact are available at

    PolitiFact | Rick Perry's file

    It's a bit unfair to compare multiple personalities head to head on Politifact, since the statements they evaluate aren't a representative sample of the personality's public statements, but let's do it anyway. If we do, we see that Romney and Obama both skew heavily towards "true", while Perry skews towards "false". Examining the individual analyses by Politifact, it's hard to escape the conclusion that Perry has been less truthful than Obama and Romney. Of course, other candidates such as Bachmann fare even worse.
