More Romney lies

        Mitt Romney’s claim of credit for the auto industry turnaround Posted by Glenn Kessler What should we do when a politician keeps repeating a Pinocchio-laden claim — or even makes its worse?

Bogus claims that just won’t die

        Bogus claims that just keep getting repeated — and a further explanation of the Pinocchio scale By Glenn Kessler “You have 219 new regulations coming out, costing over $100 million each.”  — Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), Oct. 27, 2011 As much as we try to expose wrongheaded rhetoric in today’s political debates, some of these “facts” keep popping up. It sometimes really feels like whack-a-mole.

The wealthy’s rewards

The wealthy’s rewards

          The study that shows why Occupy Wall Street struck a nerve   By Eugene Robinson Opinion writer The hard-right conservatives who dominate the Republican Party claim to despise the redistribution of wealth, but secretly they love it — as long as the process involves depriving the poor and middle class to benefit the rich, not the other way around.
