Slew Of House Republicans Falsely Claim President Obama Called For Israel To Return To "1967 Borders"

Since his speech on the Middle East last Thursday, President Obama's opponents have falsely attacked him for calling on Israel to return to its "1967 borders." In reality, Obama repeated the ordinary belief that an eventual Israeli-Palestinian peace deal should result in two states with secure borders "based on the 1967 lines with mutually agreed swaps," which will allow Israel to retain large settlements in the West Bank. Addressing the annual conference of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, the president explained very clearly that his original statement meant that the final border negotiated between the parties "will be different than the one that existed on June 4, 1967." However, that hasn't stopped many House Republicans from perpetuating a smear against Obama for something he never actually said.

Fact Checking The Sunday Shows - May 1, 2011

Hours before President Obama announced U.S. Special Forces had killed Osama bin Laden, more pedestrian and partisan news ruled the Sunday morning airwaves. On Fox, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) falsely blamed $4 trillion of debt on President Obama and then incorrectly claimed that failing to raise the debt ceiling wouldn't be a big deal. On ABC, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) tried to defend his budget by claiming people don't like it because there is "misinformation" swirling around and not because it dismantles the social safety net. Elsewhere on Sunday, Gov. Bob McDonnell (R-VA) and Sen. John Barrasso (R-WY) each claimed that the U.S. needs a Balanced Budget Amendment to the Constitution, an idea rejected by experts on both sides of the aisle. And on NBC, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) dishonestly claimed that the Ryan Budget would increase funding to Medicare, while criticizing the Affordable Care Act for cutting Medicare, a claim which is also untrue.

Despite Republican Claims, President Obama Has Not Loaned Money To Brazil For Oil Production

Two years ago, the Wall Street Journal ran an op-ed complaining about President Obama's decision to "finance oil exploration off Brazil." Although the article noted that it was only a "preliminary commitment," conservatives expressed outrage over Obama's supposed decision to finance drilling in Brazil and not at home instead. The issue resurfaced when gas prices spiked in March, prompting a round of attacks against the president. In reality, however, President Obama has not financed drilling in Brazil. The loan given was issued to Brazil by The Export Import Bank, an independent, non-taxpayer funded organization, and requires that the money be used to purchase American products, stimulating America's economy and creating American jobs.
