Obama has lied about taxes, abortion, his associations, etc. Unbelievable.
You're going to hold Obama to account for NOT agreeing with the smears against him and call those lies? You might want to entertain the possibility that...
His tax plan is on his site, read it. Those are his intentions. Congress will determine if that's what happens, of course.
No one gives a shit about the abortion issue. It was settled decades ago. If you REALLY want to stop the NEED for abortions, provide proper sex education in the schools and free and easy access to contraception. No unwanted pregnancies = fewer abortions.
I don't hold Obama to account because of people he has known in his past any more than I hold McCain to account for actually BEING one of the Keating 5. Both situations have been vetted and are IRRELEVANT to the current matters at hand.
I've met some pretty amazing people in my life. I've even worked with some of them for years. It does NOT mean I share their political ideals any more than I do even members of my family.
So, where are these LIES you speak of? And more importantly, how do they even compare, for an instant, to how McCain has flipped his ENTIRE position on THESE SAME ISSUES you are speaking of?
McCain fought against Bush on the tax cuts for YEARS. He only changed his mind for this campaign, because he had no choice if he was going to get the campaign money from the same people that supported Bush.
You're quite hypocritical in holding one candidate to a standard that is different that another.
And I NEVER said Frank, Pelosi, etc. didn't share blame for being lilly livered cowards in handling their end of this. In fact, if you scroll back a few pages, you'll see I named them EXPLICITLY in my list of people to blame.
