While PolitiFact may not be tied to any one political party, it is hardly neutral.
If it was truly neutral, Obama would've been the winner for 7 years, running,
2007: "“I don’t want to pit Red America against Blue America. I want to be the president
of the United States of America.” In 2009 shortly
after inauguration, he rejected the positions and desires of the 49% of Americans who did not vote for him by telling Jon Kyl, simply "I won," (and
thus didn't have to recognize republican requests in his stimulus program).
2008: "I pledge to pursue an agreement with the Republican nominee to preserve a publicly financed general election." He later "opted-out, and
MoveOn.org was born to finance his run.
2009: "“We’ve got shovel-ready projects all across the country that governors and mayors are pleading to fund."
He later acknowledged that this was never the case.
2010: "we're going to do all these negotiations on C-SPAN so the American people will be able to watch these negotiations."
Instead, Obama encouraged negotiators to meet privately and away from press and the cameras. C-Span was never even considered.
2011: "Teachers matter. So instead of bashing them, or defending the status quo, let's offer schools a deal. Give them the resources to keep good
teachers on the job, and reward the best ones. And in return, grant schools flexibility: to teach with creativity and passion; to stop teaching to
the test; and to replace teachers who just aren't helping kids learn."
Obama's Dept. of Education then imposed a "core curriculum" on all schools, with mandated protocols. It rejected stricter teacher standards, and
lesser union influence in education.
2012: " Al Qaida’s top lieutenants have been defeated. The Taliban’s momentum has been broken. "
Of course, Al Qaeda now effectively controls large parts of Yemen, Libya, Iraq and Syria. He has secretly negotiated with Taliban for years and
established an official outpost for negotiations in Qatar.
And now he "officially" gets the 2013 award.
There are dozens more outright lies that have gone unnoticed in the MSM or deliberately quashed.
We should give credit where credit is due.
