Obama claims he was outspent in '08. Does he ever tell the truth?—

At a campaign event in Pittsburgh yesterday, President Obama suggested he was outspent by opponent John McCain in 2008. Seriously. He said that.
Via The Right Sphere:
I don’t know if he thinks everyone is dumb or if he’s just trying to get votes by making people to feel sorry for him, but he’s lying. He was not outspent in 2008. Not even close.
“Idiot or liar”? Why choose? Embrace “and.”
“Outspent” seems to be a recurring theme in the Obama campaign.

And that campaign stop in Pittsburgh wasn’t the only time this week Obama played fast and loose with the 2008 numbers. He also tried the “outspent” line in Ohio.
Obama, in Sandusky, begins to say that in 08 "we were outspent," tries to shift gears to "potentially," then shifts to "We weren't favored"—

Apparently he decided it was a good idea to go all in after that. Sorry, Pinocchio in Chief. You got caught out there:
Paging the lapdog media. Lapdog media to the reception area.
Where is the Fact Checking media on Obama's lies on how he was outspent in previous campaigns? Are they not aware of the FEC archives?—

Your move, lapdogs.
