McCain's Exaggerations

The New York Times chronicles a few of McCain's distortions of Obama's positions.

And, for the most part, the NYT is right: McCain HAS been oversimplifying many of Obama's positions of late. Even though the substance of McCain's descriptions is often valid, his attempt to encapsulate Obama's views into sound-bite-size chunks exposes McCain to accusations of lying.

Now, if the NYT would only exercise the same diligence in scrutinizing Obama's descriptions of McCain's positions, they might regain just a little of their lost credibility.
