The Lies About Obama

Brent Budowsky, who was an aide to Sen. Lloyd Bentsen and to Rep. Bill Alexander when he was chief deputy whip of the House, sets the record straight on some of the lies and downright flasehoods that the McCain campaign has been smearing Barack Obama with for the past few weeks.

Budowsky takes exception with the news media for not checking their facts before blindly passing along McCain’s concentrated attacks of smears, lies and innuendo as facts.

He does state that “There are ample grounds to fairly challenge and criticize Barack Obama, and all other candidates, on news and opinion pages. Obama should be challenged about whether his experience is sufficient for the presidency. Obama’s policies can and should be challenged, dissected, debated, rebutted and criticized.”

    Obama’s campaign said it never planned to bring reporters or cameras along, and pointed out that he did not invite the media earlier in the trip when he visited wounded soldiers in Iraq.

    Obama told reporters that the Landstuhl visit was called off because of “concern that maybe our visit was going to be perceived as political, and the last thing that I want to do is have injured soldiers and the staff at these wonderful institutions having to sort through whether this is political or not and get caught in the crossfire between the campaigns.”
