Who Watches the Watchers, Etc.

Or as they say in Latin, "Que cuspidor cuspidor-spittie"...or something like that.

Our pal David Kopel notes that the fact checkers got the NRA's spin on Obama wrong:
FACTCHECK FLUBS OBAMA GUN FACT CHECK: is an excellent project of the Annenberg Public Policy Center of the University of Pennsylvania. It a non-partisan organization which provides factual evaluations of the claims of and about political figures. I have cited it in my own writing, and will continue to do so. However, that FactCheck has a well-deserved reputation for accuracy and good judgment does not mean that its work is infallible, as the VC has pointed out previously. The Encyclopedia Britannica also has a well-deserved reputation for accuracy and impartiality, but the Britannica sometimes contains errors or overstatements.

FactCheck’s September 22, 2008, report on the National Rifle Association’s advertising critical claims that the NRA “distorts Obama's position on gun control beyond recognition.” FactCheck itself, though, has overstated its claims, and made several errors.

Obama is very careful about what words he uses. "Designed" vs "Intended" as Kopel states. Obama is a lawyer (aka dog excrement) and he is aware of the delicate relationship of words and their interpretation by the courts. He also is a Marxist. He has been a radical communist since a teenager. He carefully denies all his radical terrorist links and beliefs. His attitude is that he can manipulate and twist reality to his ends. He has that wise ass grin on his face like he is going to get over on you. I fear he will with an enormous number of fellow citizens.

When he and McCain appeared together at the WTC on 9/11 I noted how he handled placing the flowers he was given. McCain lowered them slowly and took a moment to pause in prayer. Obama had the wise ass grin and tossed them into the pile of bouquets then walked away. Michelle was no where to be seen that day.

The more I see and hear this man, the more I see a Manchurian canididate. Beware. There is something up with this man that is pure evil.
