My favorite part of his trip to Iraq is when he told the troops that he fought for them by insisting that they will receive a 10% pay raise this year. The first raise in over TEN YEARS!!!!
Of course, what he did NOT tell them was (a) last year he proposed a 2.1% raise, but Congress decided to give them a 2.4% raise; (b) that active duty members of the military have received raised every year for the past 35 years (since 1983, in fact); and (c) the raise they are receiving is NOT 10% but is actually 2.6%.
The Washington Post has documented 7546 lies (exaggerations/misstatements/distortions of the truth/falsehoods) in the last 700 days. The man is indefatigable! What a guy! No wonder so many people admire him.
