In Praise of Truth-Tellers

by Pejman Yousefzadeh on July 4, 2012

So, the Obama campaign went and whined to FactCheck.org for making the exceedingly obvious point that Team Obama is lying about Mitt Romney and his record. FactCheck.org decided to point out in response that the complaints are “all wet.” Their words, not mine. Be sure to read the whole thing, which is an utter demolition of Team Obama’s claims; this is the kind of thing that should make any decent Obama supporter–which the punditry world’s stock of Obamaphile hacks are most certainly not–utterly ashamed of their candidate.

In a way, I am glad that the Obama campaign has decided to show its true colors. It certainly makes it easy to vote against the president’s re-election–and for Mitt Romney–with a clean conscience. And on this July 4th, it makes it easy to resolve that no campaign engaging in the manifestly unpatriotic act of lying to the American public ought to be rewarded with victory in November.
