Posted on 08/29/2012 11:40:16 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
Glenn Kessler is The Washington Post's laughably biased fact checker, and when you think of Kessler, remember this -- remember the "fact" checker who called Romney a liar for saying a president who didnt go to Israel didn't go to Israel.
This guy is utterly shameless, and this morning he's having a full-blown tantrum.
Back in July, Kessler did everything in his power to protect Obama from his unbelievably revealing "you didn't build that" moment. At the time, Kessler awarded Romney three of his childish Pinocchios for the unpardonable sin of, you know, holding the president accountable for his words. Here's my take on why Kessler was wrong then and why he wasn't fact checking but disguising his misguided left-wing opinion as fact.
This morning, however, Kessler returns to this tired old debate, and now you can practically hear him stamp his feet while whining with impotent rage:
Somebody listen to me!
Oh, yes -- this morning Kessler hauled out the big guns; this morning Kessler awarded the RNC convention's use of "you didnt build that" with --Bum-Bum-Bummm -- FOUR Pinocchios!
Well, gasp and egads.
What the feckless Kessler needs to come to terms with is that the era of his or any biased, Obama-shilling fact checker having any impact on anything is long over.
When you start disguising your left-wing opinions as fact and calling people liars for stating a president who didn't go to Israel didn't go to Israel -- no one's going to take you seriously anymore.
And this morning's crybabying isn't doing Kessler's credibility a whole helluva lot of good either.
Rage, little fact-checker, rage.

Everybody’s entitled to their own opinion, but nobody is entitled to their own facts............
They know this comment showing Obama’s true colors is killing him and are doing the darndest to spin it away. Sorry, we heard it, we understood it and the context only reinforces the socialist meaning of the the statement.
It must be hurting them badly:
Juan Williams: Dirty politics GOP style (Grab a bucket!)
That quote will outrank "Read my Lips" for election impact.
I love it when the camera pan at the convention shows the we built it sign.
I was wondering why all the commies at MSNBC were talking about “pinnochios”.
Juan Williams is getting WAY too partial for my taste now that his buddy Barry is running for election again. I try to hit the mute button every time I see Juan’s mouth move when he’s on Fox News Ch. I USED to like him fine, but it is very noticeable when he can’t hack what someone says re Obama. Juan’s face changes, his eyes flash fire and he looks like he’s going to loose it!!!! Maybe he needs a vacation for a while....
Obama’s quote is actually even worse when you look at it in full context. The paragraph before, where he overtly mocks people who think they succeeded because they were intelligent or worked hard, is unambiguous, and even more damning, then the “you didn’t build that” comment.
that guy looks incredibly metrosexual
>> this morning Kessler awarded the RNC convention’s use of “you didnt build that” with —Bum-Bum-Bummm — FOUR Pinocchios!
Well, I’m awarding Kessler one big long fat honkin’ pinocchio!
The (R)s aren’t using “you didn’t build that” at all. I never saw those words anywhere on the floor!
They’re merely claiming “we built it”. And so they did! Prove ‘em wrong, Kessler.
I have an idea. Why don’t we just ignore these idiots.
I have no idea who Kessler is and why his opinion matters.
