Obama Runs on Truth

Michael Scherer: "The Obama campaign is claiming the banner of truth, as a cudgel against their opponent.... For the record, the Obama campaign has not always hewed to the truth. One of its summer television spots, which focused on Mitt Romney's abortion record, is centered on an outright falsehood.... But in recent weeks, the Romney campaign has outdone the Obama deceptions by shaping its central message around two distortions: The notion that Obama cut Medicare to deprive current seniors benefits, and the idea that Obama wants to do away with the work requirement for welfare.... In Charlotte, look for the Obama team to ride this message to political benefit."
