Conservative wingnuts are growing desperate in their efforts to pretend that the Romney campaign totally isn’t pulling a Titanic on them, and some have turned to their usual lying tricks. Enter this since-deleted tweet from inept attorney-turned-inept law professor Matt Barber:
There’s just one small problem: That record-breaking 75-thousand-strong crowd actually turned up at an Obama rally in Portland, Oregon back in 2008.
But hardly content with humiliating himself only once today, Barber then issued a “correction” of sorts and bravely tried to spin his flub into a shot at Obama:
So it seems this was actually an 08 Obama rally. Lesson? He's pulling pitiful numbers in 12 by comparison twitter.com/jmattbarber/st…— Matt Barber (@jmattbarber) September 27, 2012
So, Barber’s reaction to being caught in mid-lie is to put on his propeller hat and go, “B-b-but Obama’s still less popular than he was back then!” And that’s as the President routinely draws larger crowds than Romney. And not to mention how he continues to trump Romney in the polls by an increasingly whopping margin.
But hey, whatever helps Barber sleep at night, I suppose.
