Who is Going to Fact-Check Team Obama? Their Statements on Iran Arenít True.
The PJ Tatler ^ | March 31, 2012 | Richard Grenell

The simple fact is that team Obama has passed ONE UN resolution on Iran. They got only 12 votes of support in that ONE resolution (12/15 votes for a failure rate of 20% on Iran votes at the Security Council). The Bush team got FIVE resolutions on Iran (THREE with Sanctions). In those FIVE resolutions, team Bush lost just 2 total votes (73/75 votes for a failure rate of 2.6% on Iran votes at the Security Council). Additionally, team Obama hasn’t produced a UN resolution on Iran since June 9, 2010 (almost 2 years ago).

One only needs to look at the growing list of countries that have said they will ignore our request to stop buying Iranian oil to understand that Obama’s diplomatic requests are being ignored. I see India, Russia, China, South Africa and many European countries publicly saying they will buy Iranian oil and ignore the U.S. requests. While team Obama thinks the world is united, the world is enjoying the comfort of a weaker U.S. government that no longer pressures them to take action.

It is disheartening but the world is less united since Obama has been in office.

Yet Team Obama says: “Iran is weaker and more isolated today precisely because of actions that President Obama has taken. Through sustained diplomacy, the president forged unprecedented international consensus to pressure Iran — far greater consensus and pressure than the previous Republican administration achieved through its go-it-alone, my-way-or-the highway approach. President Obama secured the toughest unilateral and multilateral sanctions on Iran to date, and they’re having a devastating impact on its economy. The Iranian nuclear program has been slowed, and Iran’s leaders have signaled their willingness to resume talks, in which the United States will seek to ensure Iran lives up to its international obligations. At the same time, the president has firmly and consistently said that all options are on the table, including military action, to prevent the Iranian regime from obtaining a nuclear weapon.”

their statements on eligibility weren’t true either... and the media, and many here, don’t bother to fact check any of it

at this point, the country needs to hit rock bottom so it can recognize and purge its illness

"Who is Going to Fact-Check Team Obama?"

Certainly no one in the 95% of the media that communicates with most of the country.

Who is Going to Fact-Check Team Obama? Their Statements on Iran [Just About Everything] Aren’t True.

Misrepresentation, Half-Truths, Lies by Ommission, inventions repeated enough times to become "fact,"

The Obama Regine and their flying monkeys are masters of distortions or opinion as "fact."
