100+ days, 100+ lies ...
Burger King is no longer "Home of the Whopper." That title now goes to the Obama White House.
Since B. Hussein took office, he lied about how much control "his" government would exert over U.S. auto companies; he lied about raising taxes and increasing government spending and his support for congressional earmarks; and now he and his are lying about the vaunted Obama Stimulus enough to ensure a special place and hell for 'em all. To wit:
ABC News' Jake Tapper is perhaps the only network journalist who's not in the tank for Obama. Indeed, he's the only mainstream news guy who's willing to shovel through the Obama Administration's horseshit and ask tough questions. Like this:

As part of this upgrade, the building installed solar panels, green roof, rainwater collection system, energy-efficient lighting, as well as water-conserving toilets, showerheads and faucets."

[White House Spokesman Robert] GIBBS: I think the mistake — mistake in that one, as you blogged about earlier, took a series of different projects in a cut- and-paste into one.
TAPPER: OK. So it wasn’t as clear and — it wasn’t as accurate as it could have been?
GIBBS: I — I think that’s accurate to say, yes.
At least Barry's official mouthpiece had the good sense to admit that his boss'd been caught fibbing. I'm not gonna hold my breath waiting for CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC et al. to report such. Mainly 'cause I don't want to suffocate to death.
