Nat should be proud

So it's mildly encouraging an Obama appointee has enough wherewithal to enforce the law. A fairly obvious case, but of course that means nothing or might be a contra-indicator.

What's so interesting is that anyone could think the challenged statement is a "lie," as many press reports described it, making absurd characterizations such as "Ohio law banning campaign lies is struck down" and "A federal judge in Cincinnati has struck down as unconstitutional an Ohio election law that banned candidates or independent organizations from lying in political campaigns"

The lie(tm) was a statement "claiming the Democrat's support for President Barack Obama's health care overhaul equated with support for abortion, even though he opposed abortion."

That's like saying the it's a lie to claim Obamacare will raise costs or lower them, or improve or worsen health care. That our press could report such a thing as a clear conclusion is ludicrous. And as for a politician's beliefs, please. The only true statement John Kerry ever made was that he was for it before he was against it (and needless to say he was pilloried for his inadvertent honesty).
