Democratic Polling Firm PPP: Romney 49, Obama 47 | Main | Chris Matthews: Right Hates Obama More Than Al Qaeda, Due To "Racial Hatred"

Obama's Denial of an Apology Tour Undermined By Obama's Apology Tour

"Everything he just said isn't true."

Except for everything he said.

Romney's also cut an ad from the debate, in which he lobs the charge. So obviously he thinks he got the worst of this.

Gabe does a fact check of Obama. Obama was... not bursting with accuracy.

Among the things you probably know about (Romney was correct on his bankruptcy argument about GM and the Status of Forces Agreement), he also misled on two other big things:

On the looming defense sequestration cuts, Obama claimed The sequester is not something that Ive proposed. It is something that Congress has proposed. But according to no less than investigative juggernaut Bob Woodward, sequestration was the brainchild of White House chief of staff Jack Lew and White House Legislative Affairs Director Rob Nabors, who talked Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid into supporting it. By blaming Congress, Obama is eliding his own role in the failed negotiations that resulted in the U.S. credit rating being downgraded.

...

On Iran, Obama claimed to have implemented crippling sanctions that have "isolated" the country. In fact, Obama had nothing to do with implementing the sanctions regime. Congress wrote and passed the sanctions over Obama's objections and while Obama tried to water them down. After the sanctions passed Congress, Obama then provided 20 "waivers" so Iran's trading partners -- including China and India -- could continue buying oil from the rogue government.

More: Romney cut three ads from last night's debate.
