Career politician Mitch McConnell can’t defend his big government, big spending record so he depends on making up lies and slinging mud.
Many fact checkers have said that McConnell’s ads are misleading or flat-out false:
PolitiFact called McConnell’s attack ad on this issue FALSE and said that the “facts paint a very different picture.”
FactCheck.org printed a scathing analysis of McConnell’s false ad.
The Washington Post gave McConnell’s first ad three Pinocchios, which means it has “significant factual error and/or obvious contradictions,” and called it “especially misleading.”
Fox News CT said, “However, we checked the facts and McConnell’s ad doesn’t really add up.”
The Washington Post wrote, “This ad especially reminds us of the Obama campaign’s attacks on Mitt Romney’s business record at Bain Capital, in which a sliver of truth often was taken out of context.”
Lexington Herald-Leader says, “McConnell…never lets facts stand in the way of a good attack. Meanwhile, voters are left to wonder whyMcConnell has had 30 years in the Senate as the No. 1 Republican, but isn’t highlighting his accomplishments.”
