    Can't we all just accept the fact that *everyone* on the internet is most likely a Hitler-loving Nazi?

    I see your point, although I like seeing the White House fight back.

    Exactly WHAT BS did they claim?? The ONLY mistake I've heard in the past month was a slip on a city name.

    There has been NO credible rebuttal from the White House on ANY of GB's statements..Did Ed tell you that or do you just make it up like BO?

    Because the WH calls it a lie, does that make it so in your eyes? Because the WH calls it the truth is it the truth in your eyes? I submit that if you think Fox lies that you, your self don't know the truth OR care to see it.

    The premise of the thread tells all WH calls out.. but what exactly are the lies? NONE! Just Clower and Piven tactics without substance or truth..

    LOL.
    Like CBS/NY Times and their use of forged documents.
    CNN being propagandists for Saddam Hussein.
    The lack of interest in Edwards.
    The coverage of Obama during the last election?
    Yes, Fox... the lone wolf is a problem.

    It is because the press fails to do its job (propagandizing rather than reporting), and schools indoctrinate socialist blather that we have a mental midget in the White House, and ignorance abounds.

    Only an ignorant electorate could vote in such a hollow individual.
    You should tune into FOX... just as a mental exercise... you might actually learn something... after all, most of us have an unadulterated profusion of Liberal crap to stomach daily... you should at least try small doses of the opposition.
    Rush, Hannity, Levin, Fox, WA Times, WSJ. There are a few sources ... try a wee bit sometime.

    All I see is how conservatives didnt get behind the president to bring jobs to our ailing economy. The world would have thrown money into our economy. Jobs would have been created immediately for US. They just dont KNOW to care it is not that they dont. They just have no clue.

    ... well, in real history, the attacks played out in a way supposedly nobody could mitigate or prevent, Osama bin Laden got away, we went to Iraq for no reason, and Afghanistan went sour. We have basically been flushing our nation's time, resources, reputation, and lives down the drain for 8 years.

    I really don't think it could have gotten any worse.

    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    That would leave him no time to get to the real business at hand.

    I look at it like this. You have your people who prefer their propaganda with a whacko twist. There is a market there. Truth, lies, it doesn't matter to these folks. They can also be found in the checkout line reading National Enquirer. There is one born every minute. Why not capitolize on the ignorant?

    Learned people know better. They recognize FOX for what it is. Fools never learn. Why even bother trying? Let them suck up their Limbaugh, FOX and whatever whacko is the flavor of the day. So what? Let 'em all buy pet rocks and snake oil too. LOL!

    I find it better to just sit back and find the humor in their ignorance. If the White House wants to validate their cookoo-ism by responding to the likes of Beck, it just belittles them.

    Feed the fools whatever they want to eat. Laugh all the way to the bank. It's the American way. God bless America.

    You can just sum that up as it is inevitable FOX is going to lie. In which case, the White House's response is equally inevitable and no more deserving of the attention or criticism of sane people.

    Seeing as I have not read any responses on this thread, I hope I'm not repeating what someone else already said.

    Now, the first thing I will say is, that article led people to believe that Glenn Beck had made a bunch of false statements in that segment in his show, which was false. With the exception of the Vancouver statement, every single "false" statement the White House claimed was made, was made by long time DEMOCRAT Pat Caddell.

    As for the Vancouver statement, I believe he was referring to Toronto's Olympic bid of a few years ago.

    Here is an excerpt from a 2004 article from CSM, which talks about the effect to cities which host the Olympics:

    "Experts say that Greece is hardly unusual in having a post-Olympic hole in its pocket. "With the exception of Los Angeles, [in 1984], I can't think of any Olympics that were really a financial success," says Evan Osborne, a sports economist at Ohio's Wright State University.

    Australian taxpayers are still paying off an Olympic debt from the 2004 Sydney Games that could cost them $32 million a year for a decade. Barcelona is still paying back a $1.4 billion Olympic deficit. And even the Salt Lake City Winter Olympics in 2002 left Utah with a $155 million deficit."

    Then there's this from an article last year published by the CBC:

    "Montreal's Olympic Stadium needs a new nickname — the Big Owe no longer applies because Quebecers have finally paid off their $1.5-billion debt from the 1976 Summer Games."

    That whole article is typical of the liberal left. They make a big deal out of things that turn out to be nothing, because being honest always seems to take a back seat to sliming others for political gain...

    It's just another day at the office for the democrats and the liberal left.
