New Term For an Obama Fib: He 'Over-suggested'
Newsbusters ^ | 9/22/11 | Tom Blumer

Bruce Siceloff at the Raleigh News & Observer had the task of writing up the results of his newspaper's follow-up investigation into the safety of bridges in the Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina area after Barack Obama's visit there last week. In a speech there, the President asserted that "In North Carolina alone, there are 153 structurally deficient bridges that need to be repaired. Four of them are near here, on or around the Beltline. Why would we wait to act until another bridge falls?"

I know this will come as a total shock to readers -- not -- but the president wasn't being truthful. Behold what Siceloff and his paper found, and how he felt compelled to come up with a new word to describe Obama's untruthful characterizations (HT to Rush Limbaugh, who brought this up on the air today):

And at the same time - employing the deft spin that political speakers use when they spice up a little information to make a big impression - the president may have over-suggested the risk to public safety.

Mark Levin played a clip of an Obama flub in Cincinnati.

Obama was running his class warfare line and trying to say Buffett shouldn't be paying a lower rate than the secretary but he flipped it. He actually said she shouldn't pay the lower rate.

I hope other shows pick up the audio.

I live in Raleigh. I even worked as a sports stringer for them when I was in my mid and early teens covering high school sports. I will not allow that rag to even touch my driveway ever again.

I wonder. How about "0's oversuggestions on the need for new taxes were unexpected."

Don’t blame you. Who want slimy red stains all over their nice clean concrete.

There was a prophet in the 20th century. It was Orwell. Every single thing he suggested has come true. Either he was prescient or he was aware of the socialist/communist game plan, which is playing out before our eyes.
