My favorite out and out lie is that Obama will send checks to welfare recipients who dont work as part of his tax cut plan. Well NO liars! The only people who will receive a tax cut are working people. The McCain liars are splitting hairs by saying these people dont pay taxes, and giving morons on the internet the idea these people dont work. Well yes they do, they pay payroll taxes just not income taxes because they are so near the poverty line yet working full time. Oh but our fellow Americans earning over $250,000 (and many well more than that) who have to sacrifice like $300 bucks so a poor person can buy a few more tanks of gas and gallons of milk will lose out. Yes, more evidence of Obama the socialist.

What is your favorite lie, myth or hypocratic statements by the McCain campaign?

I have always heard Obama say 95% of "working" Americans.

My favorite lie is when McCain says Obama wants to spread the wealth when he also wants to spread the wealth, but only to the wealthier.

My favorite is more of a phrase than a line:

"My friends........."

They say lies like these because most people don't have a clue what is going on past Survivor or American Idol. Look at the choices we have for president this time. One with not enough experiance to be president, the other not the choice of the majority of people in there party.

When I hear people talking politics they go by what they hear on tv. Same old story over and over again. Very uninformed voters.

Default My favorite isn't a current campaign slogan

This one goes back a ways, but the GOP talking heads keep using it, although they use slightly different code words to refer to it these days:

Remember trickle down economics?

I think most of us are still waiting to see the "benefits" that were supposed to filter down to the middle class. Twenty years ago. But we're still told that taxing the wealthiest in our society "punishes success."

My favorite Obama lie was this Pennsylvania dutch farmer saying that he hunts and Obama has always supported the right of people to own guns and "that's the truth."
Now the same radio station is airing pro McCain ads saying Obama tried to ban private gun ownership. Elections are a gold mine for radio and TV stations and channels.
