A slight narrowing of Obama's phony lead over Romney and Johnson, but it's still pretty dominating:
|Query String||Hit Count||Change Since
|"Barack Obama" phony||6,250,000||-90,000|
|"Mitt Romney" phony||1,720,000||+130,000|
|"Gary Johnson" phony||473,000||+26,000|
And now, the news behind the phoniness:
Two Obama fans took the President's advocacy of "redistribution"
a little too seriously and decided to do some freelance redistribution
on their own.
Bail was set at $100,000 and $75,000 today for two men charged with depositing two checks stolen from President Barack Obama's campaign headquarters into bank accounts they fraudulently opened.
The checks were made out to legitimate businesses, but the suspects deposited them in phony accounts they had set up under the names of those companies, authorities said.
Obama could have told them: That sort of expropriation is only legal if you're a government official.
A small kerfuffle
erupted on the left in response to Mitt Romney's
interview with Univision.
Mitt Romney dyed his face brown for his Univision interview.
… accompanied by pictures that (under different lighting conditions) show Romney looking paler.
But crack investigators at ABC News/Univision found there was nothing to it, via an interview with the makeup artist Lazz Rodriguez:"When he walked in, I remember thinking, 'Wow this is tanner than I thought he was,' but I think he's just been outside a lot lately for his campaign," Rodriguez noted. "It was definitely a real tan."
I see a new campaign slogan: "Mitt Romney: less phony than he sometimes appears to be."
Steyn noted the phoniness of the Obama Administration's
desperate spinning of the horrors in Libya. Please Read The Whole
Thing™, but here's a small excerpt:
… after a week and a half of peddling an utterly false narrative of what happened in Libya, the United States government is apparently beginning to discern that there are limits to what even Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and Susan Rice can say with a straight face. The official line -- that the slaughter of American officials was some sort of improvised movie review that got a little out of hand -- is now in the process of modification to something bearing a less patently absurd relationship to what actually happened. That should not make any more forgivable the grotesque damage that the administration has done to the bedrock principle of civilized society: freedom of speech.
Any chance some Obama fans might notice that the Administration that once promised to be "reality based" is dealing increasingly in fantasy and lies? Probably not.
