Reminder: Elite Media Doesn’t Fact-Check Obama’s Statements in Debates

Posted by iusbvision on October 2, 2008

Just a little reminder of how the elite media doesn’t call out Obama on his lies/reversals in the debates.

Without preconditions?

Obama’s “forceful” Condemnation of the Invasion of Georgia?

Here is the reversal on missile defense

Obama says that no soldier dies in vain

…but that is not what he said in his 2002 anti-war speechhttp://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Barack_Obama%27s_Iraq_Speech

The consequences of war are dire, the sacrifices immeasurable. We may have occasion in our lifetime to once again rise up in defense of our freedom, and pay the wages of war. But we ought not — we will not — travel down that hellish path blindly. Nor should we allow those who would march off and pay the ultimate sacrifice, who would prove the full measure of devotion with their blood, to make such an awful sacrifice in vain.

Obama also said that 3000 lives in Iraq were wasted. http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/story?id=2872135&page=1 

Obama has twice apologized since implying that U.S. troops had died in vain, telling a rally crowd in Ames, Iowa, on Sunday, “We ended up launching a war that should have never been authorized, and should never been waged, and on which we have now spent $400 billion, and have seen over 3,000 lives of the bravest young Americans wasted.”

 

Obama said that he supports nuclear energy and denied it when McCain said that he was against the storing of nuclear waste and stated that “You cant get there from here”
Well here it is:

On nuclear power, Sen. Obama says he’s open to expanding nuclear energy, which now provides 20% of the nation’s electricity, as part of an effort to increase power sources that emit little or no carbon dioxide. But he also has said there is no future for expanded nuclear energy until the U.S. comes up with a safe, long-term solution for disposing of nuclear waste. He opposes the Bush administration’s plan for storing waste at Yucca Mountain in Nevada.
