You mean... Bill Lies!?!

Senator Barack Obama says former president Bill Clinton is "completely mischaracterizing" his words. In other words, he is a liar. Who is that news to?

Race and voter disenfranchisement were the buzz words in the Nevada caucuses, where Hillary Clinton prevailed over Obama. And now Obama is upset that Bill Clinton has told crowds that Obama, while invoking the name of Ronald Reagan is his speeches, has said that Obama has been saying only Republicans have had good ideas since the 1980's.

Says Obama:"If you have something that just directly contradicts the facts and it’s coming from a former president, I think that’s a problem, because people presume that a former president is going to have more credibility. And I think there are certain responsibilities that are carried with that."

Let's ferret this out. First, it is entirely true that only Republicans have had good ideas since the 1980's. Longer in fact. Second, it is not true that Obama has said that. Third, if Obama is worried about "President Clinton's credibility," I have to wonder if he believes in other fictitious things, like Leprechauns, Unicorns, and Democrats who are proud to be American.

That's right... Bill Clinton lies. He already has no credibility. So what's the difference? Well, Bill Clinton used to lie to his wife. Now he lies for her.
