Obama is a Big Fat Liar

Ira Stoll asks:
Where are the “fact-checkers” when you need them?

On CBS News’s “60 Minutes” Sunday night, President Obama said, “Taxes are lower on families than they've been probably in the last 50 years. So I haven't raised taxes.”
As of Monday morning, neither the Washington Post’s Pinocchio-awarding Fact-Checker, nor the Annenberg Public Policy Center’s, nor the Tampa Bay Times’ Pulitzer-Prize-winning had risen to this opportunity, so let us take a stab.
Stoll takes more than a stab. He sets Obama's well creased pants ablaze. Using the Obama administration's own numbers, Stoll looks at the facts nine different ways and concludes that Obama is a Big Fat Liar. It doesn't matter if you look at taxes paid, tax rates, payroll taxes, whatever -- Big Fat Liberal Liar.

Read the whole thing.

Update: Michael Cannon says Stoll was generous.
