Obama’s Record Not in Question

Obama distanced himself from his record on guns by claiming that his staff had answered questions where he called for banning handguns and semi-automatic firearms.  It turns out he was lying:

Late last year, in response to a Politico story about Obama’s answers to the original questionnaire, his aides said he “never saw or approved” the questionnaire.

They asserted the responses were filled out by a campaign aide who “unintentionally mischaracterize[d] his position.”

But a Politico examination determined that Obama was actually interviewed about the issues on the questionnaire by the liberal Chicago nonprofit group that issued it. And it found that Obama — the day after sitting for the interview — filed an amended version of the questionnaire, which appears to contain Obama’s own handwritten notes added to one answer.

I’m sorry, did I say he lied?  Pretty clearly he just misspoke.  Yeah.  That’s the ticket.

    He didn’t lie or misspoke. He just misremembered [sic]. Sort of like Hillary misremembered about coming under sniper fire (something there’s a good chance of my pants remembering if it were me).

    It depends on what is the meaning of “is”.
