Updated on May 14, Q: The 16 claims in a widely distributed graphic are mostly false or distorted. THIS should be on billboards all over our nation! It mainly recycles years-old falsehoods and insinuations, most of which we covered long agoin connection with an earlier viral email.

Worth noting is that nobody in the U. Obama, like other young men turning age 18 since then, was required to register on a standby basis, in case Congress ever resumes an active military draft.

Claim 15, foreign student aid. But they were quite wrong. There was no such travel ban. It claims to have about 2, members. The graphic also attributes three quotes to Obama, all of which are commonly offered on conservative websites.
All the quotes are accurate. The union has endorsed him again for reelection. Thank you, and God bless you. However, the cap-and-trade legislation he endorsed provided allowances intended to protect consumers from higher bills.
