(fact check 2). I think you meant Syria, but a number of the fact checks varied somewhat from the content of the press conference, so I wasn't sure.

Gas production is up but in part because of Bush. No Gas production is up in spite of Obama. Obama has Israels back - and exactly how long did it take him to finally have to give in on any one of those decisions. He backed Israel with the Flotilla incident? No he didn't. How long did he stay silent?! His comments about Ms. Fluck and his daughters were just fluff and meant nothing. What fact check were you pointing out there. The fact that he is great at passing around the bs? I am surprised he did not break out in song. And the money we are sending to Israel? How exactly is that being calculated, how are we are giving them the largest amount in history? The same way Obama is calculating consumer spending being up by including student debt in that figure? Or his claim that auto sales are up when they are up between manufacturer and dealer, not dealer and consumer? I thought this was going to be an article about the real facts, but I see it is the usual, media stroking Obama piece that unfortunately, is mostly what is put out there. Too bad. You would think with all of the negatives we must try and live with these days, high gas prices, high food prices, regulations up the kazoo that the media would be more sympathetic to the issues, and less sympathetic to stroking their king since all of those negatives come out of their pockets as well.

This is more an opinion page. # 7. I heard the Pres. say good luck so how is that a fact to check? Didn't you get the joke on knowing "what was in Rush's heart"? The Republicans used that line when asking if the Pres. was a christian. #2 McCain wanted to bomb Iran in 2008 remember his song? He is quick on the trigger. And Fact check #1 compared to Romney's taxes I paid a higher % as a retiree on a pension than he did. And I know I paid more than GE. Where are the facts you were checking.

Remember Romney (probably to his dismay) released a tax return on the same day the president spoke about making changes to the tax policy? This is just one of many examples. It is called American politics. Rafe — please recall that the Tepublican candidates, Mitt Romney in particular, also have a knack for attempting to upstage President Obama.

He already called Sandra Fluke, so what else does he have to say? Why would he have a comment to Romney tonight? Dumb questions and not a very enlightening article.
