<A HREF="http://www.factcheck.org/elections-2008/factchecking_obama.html" TARGET="_blank">http://www.factcheck.org/elect....html</A><p>Sample:<br><i>Obama also pulled some sleight of hand when he stated that "the average American family" saw its income "go down $2,000" under George Bush. That's not correct. Census figures show average family income went down $348.<p>As it turns out, when Obama said "average family income," he didn't mean "average," and he didn't mean "family," either. An Obama aide says he was really referring to median income – which is the midpoint – and not to the average. And Obama was talking only about "working families," not retired couples. <p>For all families, median family income actually inched up under Bush by $272.<br></i><p>It's a good read, and I think I may have finally found a site I can believe. And no, not just because they posted this analysis of Obama's lies, but because they seem to be pretty fair and uninterested in stroking egos or pandering to either side.<p>I wonder what they will say about McCain's speech. I will be watching...

Re: Just some facts on Obamas DNC speech (JoeLvo)

Yep, inconvenient - I know.<p>I at least thought there would be some radicals on here who would skip past the 9 cases of Obama lying, and go straight to the 2 cases of McCain lying, but I guess I was wrong. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0">

Having said that, I wish the mentioned whether the income is measured in nominal or real dollars.<p>JK
