Snarking and shaming: Conservatives slam fact-choking PolitiFact for lying about Janesville plant

President Obama’s PolitiFlacks are at it again.

The president’s unofficial fluffers at PolitiFact produced an obscenely dishonest “fact check” of Paul Ryan’s GOP convention speech, giving a rating of “False” to his statement about the Janesville, Wis., plant that closed after Obama took office.

Ryan said Obama broke his promise to keep a Wisconsin GM plant from closing. But we don’t see evidence he explicitly made such a promise — and more importantly, the Janesville plant shut down before he took office.

We rate Ryan’s statement False.

What date would PolitiFact have us believe President Obama was inaugurated?

As for Ryan “falsely” claiming that Obama broke a promise to keep the plant from closing, we rate PolitiFact “Pants on Fire.”

More from President Obama, via Hot Air:

As president, I will lead an effort to retool plants like the GM facility in Janesville so we can build the fuel-efficient cars of tomorrow and create good-paying jobs in Wisconsin and all across America.

PolitiFact and other hacktastic Obama lapdogs have completely descended into self-parodies.

If only. But sadly, that is not the way of the lapdog.

Fact checkers, check thyselves. Or face the snarking and shaming of the conservative Twitterverse.

If they’re not familiar with this “Google,” here’s a site that might help with that.

We rate that one “subjectively accurate.”

The painful truth is setting the fact checkers ablaze today, including newly minted “fact” checker Ezra Klein who relied on PolitiFact to bolster his lies.

And oh, how sweet it is!
