    Clinton Speech and Factcheck.org

    Clinton threw out so many numbers that even Factcheck.org admittet

    Former President Bill Clinton’s stem-winding nomination speech was a fact-checker’s nightmare: lots of effort required to run down his many statistics and factual claims, producing little for us to write about.
    The findings were that he exaggerated on a couple of issues and used numbers which requires a recheck in couple years but essentially was accurate.

    Republicans will find plenty of Clinton’s scorching opinions objectionable. But with few exceptions, we found his stats checked out.

    In my opinion he totally killed the RNC and all the speakers there. Just based on the speech and all the facts he brought forth should re-elect Obama by default. He was funny, yet stern, and totally killed claims made by Ryan and Romney. And if you look at all the stats and how little Factcheck.org has to write about it was a home run.

    For those who actually haven't watched the speech and talking out of their a** now here is the link to the entire speech:

    additional fact check by the ThinkProgress.

    http://thinkprogress.org/election/20...sky/?mobile=nc

    Now the AP fact check is noted as the only one who is attempting to actually discredit Clinton's speech. To discredit the speech AP had to dig out even the Lewinsky scandal which really has no bearing on today or the economy or anything.
    In all fairness here is that link: http://www.nydailynews.com/news/poli...icle-1.1153053

    If anybody has to dig out Lewinsky some 15 years later in order to block an Obama re-election has not much to go on.

    Can you tell me where Clinton's economic plan and Obama's are even similiar? Bill Clinton is not running for re-election by the way.

    Better yet, can this guy even reasonably describe either Clinton's or Obama's economic plans? Or will it sound like his insane ramblings in the religion forum...?

    If I could take your pain and frame it, and hang it on my wall,
    maybe you would never have to hurt again...
