Michelle Obama watched the Olympics while sitting on her daddy's lap
Claim: "Some of my best memories are sitting on my dad's lap," Michelle Obama told the International Olympic Committee, "cheering on Olga and Nadia, Carl Lewis, and others for their brilliance and perfection."

Fact: Mrs. Obama was 20 years old when Lewis first competed in the Olympics in 1984

Hillary Clinton named after Sir Edmund Hillary
Claim: The first lady said her mother had read about the famous climber and knew his name had two L's. So when I was born, she called me Hillary and always told me, 'It's because of Sir Edmund Hillary,' Hillary Clinton reported."

Fact: Edmund Hillary was a relatively unknown beekeeper in New Zealand in 1947 when Hillary Clinton was born. He didn't become the first man to scale Mt Everest until 1953.
-----------------------------------------------------
Bill Clinton and the Arkansas church burnings
Claim: During a weekly Oval Office radio address on June 8th, 1996, Clinton told his audience that 'I have vivid and painful memories of black churches being burned in my own state when I was a child.

Fact: The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reported the following day that there was no evidence available of a black church ever being burned down in Arkansas."

It's no fair holding democrats to the same standards as republicans.  Besides, a gaffe is a gaffe.  A person messing up which cartoon they watched when they were 4 is absolutely the same as a person being off by 15 years when talking about the olympics or making up attacks to generate sympathy.

Indeed.  Lying or exaggerating to connect to a union or minority vote is totally the same as lying about what year you watched a cartoon.

I think that Christie was trying to deceive the influential scooby doo swing voter.

If Obama had said something similar, the GOP would be calling for a series of hearings, each longer and more pointless than the last.

At least they'd stop talking about Benghazi.

Scooby-Do, and all Hannah Barbara cartoons, sucked then and suck now. I was 7 when it premiered and already I could tell that much. I was already well hooked on Looney Tunes, and could tell the difference between classically animated shorts made for adults to watch at the movies, and that dreck.

But if you can't BS a 4-year-old to build up his self esteem, who can you BS?  HE gets a pass, and Politifact gets a pass for just goofing on a "scandal." Lighten up, y'all.

This clearly is the nail in Christie's oversize 2016 coffin. No Republican would vote for him now!

gadian: My dad is a huuuge Scooby Doo nut.  I've always promised myself that if I ever "make it big" or you know, get a real job that pays more than I need, I'd buy a Mystery Machine looking van, have it completely done up and give it to him for his birthday one year.  Of course he looks more like Old Man Jenkins than Shaggy these days, but I'm sure he'd still go for a ride for a few Scooby Snacks.
