During the Nevada caucus, Bill Clinton said that he and Chelsea witnessed voter intimidation tactics on behalf of the Obama campaign. Too bad the press can’t ask Chelsea about it.
Barack Obama appeared on GMA today and said that Clinton is lying about the incident and a whole lot else besides.
“You know the former president, who I think all of us have a lot of regard for, has taken his advocacy on behalf of his wife to a level that I think is pretty troubling,” Obama said. “He continues to make statements that are not supported by the facts — whether it’s about my record of opposition to the war in Iraq or our approach to organizing in Las Vegas.
“This has become a habit, and one of the things that we’re going to have to do is to directly confront Bill Clinton when he’s making statements that are not factually accurate,” Obama said.
But..but…Bill Clinton, lying? Well, knock me over with a straw. Obama is shrewdly taking on the relevant White Man in the race, and that’s not John Edwards.
Apologies for the sync on this clip, but you can still see Bill Clinton’s lips moving, therefore you can easily see that he’s lying.
Update: Sync fixed.
