Americans for Mendacity

Here's an ad from Americans for Prosperity:


Here's a story about the ad from Chris Cillizza
. Cillizza notes, "Our Factchecker deemed this ad false, [since it relies] on since-debunked claims about the stimulus."

Here's the Obama administration's response to the ad:


And here's Politifact's file on AFP which, by the way, completely supports the President's response. Five statements by AFP: two mostly false, one false, and two pants on fire. That's not a good record.

If you're a Tea Partier, demand that Americans for Prosperity (and the Koch brothers?) stop bullshitting and have respect for the facts.

Your political views are supported by actual facts, right?
