How Long Will the 100 Year Lie Continue?

Today on Today, Meredith asked him if he was now willing to admit that he was distorting McCain's statement. He said no, just look at the video on Youtube. Okay, here's another shot at Barack's lies, sandwiched around today's lie on Today.
This is the good thing about long, tedious campaigns. They give you the time to pick away at the illusions that candidates create and learn a bit about what they're made of. Barack is showing ego weakness - all he had to do was say, "Ya, I was speaking extemporaneously a couple of times and slightly mischaracterized the McCain position. I regret that, because the truth is bad enough that no exaggeration is needed."
Please see the post below about Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick for insight into where these missteps can lead.
