In earlier interviews, Rubio said that the United States is safer having gone to war and that it wasn’t a mistake -- but in those interviews he wasn’t directly asked the question about whether he would have favored the invasion, had we known in 2003 that we had faulty intelligence. Rubio was asked May 13 if he would have been in favor of the Iraq War if it was known at the time that there were no weapons of mass destruction. Rubio said, "Not only would I not have been in favor of it. President Bush would not have been in favor of it." As for what he would have favored if it had been known that there were no weapons, Rubio said on May 17 that it was unlikely that Congress would have given approval for Bush to move forward. All these statements seem a little different, and add up to a partial change of position. We rate Rubio’s statements on Iraq as a Half Flip.

The three new GOP presidential candidates made their pilgrimage to the Sunday news shows. ow.ly/MLVNz
A trio of Republican presidential hopefuls officially entered the 2016 race last week, which meant a requisite trip to the Sunday news shows. There, all were asked to defend past controversies. On Fox News Sunday, Ben Carson explained his past comparison of the U.S. government to Nazi Germany.

CNN's Chris Cuomo: "Hate speech is excluded from protection" under the First Amendment. Cuomo tried to clarify his point after the fact, giving an explanation similar to the examples we hashed out here. But on his specific claim, the jurisprudence works against him.

+Leo McDevitt That is actually a quote by Voltaire, "Je n'approve pas un seul mot se que vous dit, mais je defendre a la morte votre doit de le dire."- I disapprove of every word of what you say, but I defend to the death your right to say it.

Bill Clinton spoke in 2012 of not accepting foreign donations. But his statement wasn't as sweeping as some claimed, PunditFact found. ow.ly/MvImd

+Bryan May​ did you hear Joe Scarborough apologise on Morning Joe today? I am sure you will agree that there is no evidence and if Peter ( author of clinton cash ) admitted he does not have a smoking gun / evidence. Dialoque and a healthy debate has to be based on facts .

Microsoft co-founder and philanthropist Bill Gates discussed the state of the American economy Sunday, arguing that business leaders don’t need lower tax rates in the way Republicans have claimed. The “highest economic growth decade was the 1960s. Income tax rates were 90 percent,” Gates said. That rates Mostly True. http://ow.ly/N3Ku3

Hillary Clinton said, "Not a single Republican candidate, announced or potential, is clearly and consistently supporting a path to citizenship. Not one." That's not accurate; this is one. Mostly False http://tbtim.es/hw2
During a visit to a school in Nevada, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton positioned herself as an uncompromising advocate for immigration -- and in the process, she took a shot at the Republican presidential field for not joining her.

Clinton Cash author: "Amendments (Hillary Clinton) supported and voted for in 2006, she no longer supported in 2008," showing she changed positions on an India nuclear deal. In reality, Clinton supported the deal since 2006. False. http://bit.ly/1zBccMD

+Robert Murphy your right about the media is liberally bias and everyone knows it. If they dont then must horribly naive on political economic realities that put people in office. most all media weather it be actors or news etc. are completely to the left and the stories that are written are and shown to masses of sheep who clintonton getting a blow job in the oval office was "cool" but thats an insignificant matter compared to all the things they didnt say about "the clintons" obama every time a liberal state the facts its usual substance is reduced calling names or poking fun at how "in cool " they are. the biggest problem I have though is that anyone can that their preference in parties is less dispicable than the other.. really if thats what you think then bury your head in the sand and wait for your freak in prom
