Skip to comments.Ted Cruz v. PolitiFact: Whose pants are on fire?
Posted on 03/30/2013 6:00:59 AM PDT by marktwain
Yesterday, Texas on the Potomac posted coverage of PolitiFacts assessment of freshman Texas Sen. Ted Cruz. The Pulitzer Prize-winning news source rated Cruz as being untruthful in his statements 50 percent of the time.
Readers reached out, questioning the truthfulness of the fact-checkers themselves. Ted Cruzs office contacted us with similar concerns.
PF is a liberal editorial outfit not a neutral fact checker. You must see that when you read items like yesterdays Cruz/Obamacare item, which is ridiculous to the point of hilarity. Not a single substantial fact of Cruzs is rebutted in fact, his analysis was confirmed but PF reached its preferred conclusion regardless not just doubtful or half true but pants on fire, Cruz spokesman Sean Rushton said.

> Liberals lie, and they are very good about lying to themselves.
I have experience with pathological liars. They actually believe their own lies, even when you can plainly see that they are lying. I actually showed one what he did, and he still promoted his own lie, saying, “How do I know you didn’t do that?”
PolitiFact flak chuckers’ spin raises the question:
How much flak will a flak chucker chuck to shield its own lies?
I would question any "news source" that is Pulitzer prize winning.
Just read both articles at The Chron, along with the remarks.
I feel like I visited the DU.
I need a shower.
Ugh. Me too. It's amazing that these kind of people will lie even when the truth would serve them better.
--It's all a liberal blur
A recent experience - in a discussion with a liberal, he made a statement - that a woman couldn’t be elected President in this country. I don’t know what his ultimate point was but I disagreed. After several back and forths, I noted that he’d said a woman couldn’t be elected President in this country.
He said, “I never said that.”
I said, “Yes, you did.”
He said, “No I didn’t.”
I said, You did.”
Just then several bystanders jumped in and said to him, “Yes, you did. You did say that.”
His response: “Okay I said it.” (Pause) “But I deny it.”
If you can explain that one to me, please do. He couldn’t.
even if this was true, which i doubt, it still makes cruz 50% better than the POSOTUS.
