Factchecking the Republican National Convention

Besides building the entire convention around a misquote of President Obama, making believe he doesn’t think entrepreneurs contribute to their own successes, here are other falsities:

  • A misleading statistic about women’s job losses that has grown so stale it is now wholly false.
  • More bogus claims about “raiding” Medicare and the doctor-patient relationship under Obama’s Affordable Care Act.
  • A completely false claim that more than half of the younger generation is unemployed. (Actually, 86 percent who want work have it.)
  • More false claims that Obama blocked the Keystone XL Pipeline. Construction has already begun on the southern leg of the project, and the company says it expects approval for the Canada-to-U.S. leg early next year.
