Wasteful Spending Spin vs Fact

Recently Obama for America Deputy Campaign Manager Stephanie Cutter posted a video to Attack Watch responding to the new Americans for Prosperity ad, “Wasteful Spending.” This video is a desperate campaign tactic trying to divert and deflect from the truth: President Obama wasted billions in taxpayer dollars on “green energy” boondoggles in foreign countries.

This attempted rebuttal is really just a series of half-truths and outright lies in which Ms. Cutter equivocates and obfuscates Obama’s record. This video was doomed to fail by relying heavily on Washington Post “fact checker” Glenn Kessler, who wrote a piece that criticizes the ad, calling it “over-the-top.” The problem is, the Post offers zero substantive refutation of the facts used in “Wasteful Spending,” and was fully exposed as a pro-Obama puff piece.
