Obama Repeats Jamie Rubin's Lie On McCain

link to Gateway Pundit

Jamie Rubin wrote a dishonest report in the Washington Post yesterday claiming that Senator John McCain holds the same position as Barack Obama on appeasing terror-sponsoring regimes and terror organizations such as Hamas.

But, later yesterday it was discovered that although Jamie Rubin was the one to interview McCain two years ago-- He had cherry-picked clips from the interview with McCain in his article.
Here is what John McCain actually said:

"I think the United States should take a step back, see what they do when they form their government, see what their policies are, and see the ways that we can engage with them, and if there aren’t any, there may be a hiatus."

Of course, this is very different from what Rubin reported and from Barack Obama's pledge on his website to meet with terror regimes without preconditions.

But, that did not stop Jamie Rubin and Barack Obama from repeating the lie on McCain today.



Here is what Obama said today:

Barack Obama: The irony is yesterday just as John McCain was making these attacks a story broke that he was actually guilty of the exact same thing that he's accusing me of.

That, of course, is not true.
It looks like Obama is just another cheap politician trying to bring John McCain down to his level.
If he was not so ashamed of his positions he probably wouldn't have to resort to this dishonest tactic.
Sad.

More- It would be nice if conservatives(?) like Gov. Huckabee would do some research on a subject before going on the air and giving dishonest hacks like Rubin a complete pass.
