    These "facts" were just someone's spin.

    at least three lower courts an one appeals court HAVE declared the key point of Obamacare unconstitutional.

    Pawlenty, as the "fact" said, did not go directly after her

    saying someone was "defending themselves" is an interpretation, not a fact

    and the attack on Santorum? He MIGHT have been...? how is MIGHT have been a fact?

    but we don't expect honesty from the media, especially when covering politicians

    you've never heard of GM and Chrysler's plants in Canada or Mexico? And why did the Japanese tidal wave disaster cause Ford plants to shut down? Maybe because many of the parts (and the jobs associated with them) came from Japan?

    and I guess you missed the part where GM and Chrysler DID go BK, just as Romney said they should. But hey, you had another opportunity to misstate things to defame the biggest threat to your failing hero, and you couldn't pass it by.

    I don't think any of those candidates would recognize a fact if it reached up and bit him/her on the nose.

    In conclusion, my stance has not changed.
