    Thumbs up Media calls John McCain a total liar on his latest false ad

    From the Fact Check Desk: Did Obama Say Iran is a 'Tiny' Country that 'Doesn't Pose a Serious Threat'?
    August 27, 2008 11:13 AM

    We in the media have given a lot of airtime to the TV ads of Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., this week, starring as they do Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-NY.

    There's been evidence emerging that McCain's campaign isn't really running these ads anywhere, according to the Campaign Media Analysis Group.

    “These were basically video press releases,” CMAG’s Evan Tracey tells the Wall Street Journal.

    OK, so that's kind of dishonest of the McCain campaign.

    Today's new McCain ad -- "Tiny," which you can watch HERE -- crosses a new line into dishonesty, however, beyond whether or not it's actually airing anywhere.

    The script reads; "Iran. Radical Islamic government. Known sponsors of terrorism. Developing nuclear capabilities to 'generate power' but threatening to eliminate Israel.

    "Obama says Iran is a 'tiny' country, 'doesn't pose a serious threat,'" the ad continues. "Terrorism, destroying Israel, those aren't 'serious threats'? Obama -- dangerously unprepared to be president."

    This is a dishonest representation of Obama's words.

    On May 18, on Pendelton, Oregon, Obama said that "strong countries and strong Presidents talk to their adversaries. That's what Kennedy did with Khrushchev. That's what Reagan did with Gorbachev. That's what Nixon did with Mao. I mean think about it. Iran, Cuba, Venezuela -- these countries are tiny compared to the Soviet Union. They don't pose a serious threat to us the way the Soviet Union posed a threat to us. And yet we were willing to talk to the Soviet Union at the time when they were saying, 'We're going to wipe you off the planet.'

    "And ultimately that direct engagement led to a series of measures that helped prevent nuclear war, and over time allowed the kind of opening that brought down the Berlin Wall," Obama continued. "Now, that has to be the kind of approach that we take. You know, Iran, they spend one-one hundredth of what we spend on the military. If Iran ever tried to pose a serio us threat to us, they wouldn't stand a chance. And we should use that position of strength that we have to be bold enough to go ahead and listen. That doesn't mean we agree with them on everything. We might not compromise on any issues, but at least we should find out other areas of potential common interest, and we can reduce some of the tensions that has caused us so many problems around the world."

    Watch HERE.

    That is not even close to Obama saying Iran is a "tiny" country that "doesn't pose a serious threat."

    Not even close.

    The stupids will lap it up though. More outright lying from the Republicans, but hey.. because it's expected it mostly gets a free pass.

    Of course they'll lap it up. It'll be more 'proof' that Obama's not ready to lead, just like they tried to use his slip up on the campaign trail about the 52 states. But then they'll pretend that McCain didn't outright say that Putin was the president of Germany.

    His slip up was that there were 57 states. Just for the record.

    Thanks. But, at least, it wasn't about being under gunfire.

    Let me get this straight: He got free airtime for his campaign commercials, nobody caught on 'til now. He has lied over and over again, still nobody cares... So, a rich republican guy who cheats on his crippled wife, steals, 9 car motorcade to get a drink of coffee, wasn't aware of how many houses he own, confuses Sunni and Shite, but gets away with it because he is a P.O.W...

    I don''t know if she really fucked the board though. Maybe just put the tip in. -Mrs. Dark

    I'm not taking the bait, but nice try, though.
