It's a lie — except when Obama says it

Barack Obama said in his first State of the Union address, "we have excluded lobbyists from policymaking jobs." This was false. Obama had hired at least 40 lobbyists for policymaking jobs by the time he said this, including a Goldman Sachs lobbyist as chief of staff at Treasury, and a Swiss banker lobbyist at the IRS. Yet when the New York Times wrote up his speech, they referred to that discussion of lobbyists without mentioning the brazen lie. When the Washington Post more recently "counted" Obama's lies, they didn't count that lie, because Obama had excluded some lobbyists.

Obama simply was not held to the same standard as other political figures. Sometimes the very same claim could get a "True" rating from fact checkers when Obama said it, and a "False" claim when someone else said it. I'm not exaggerating here.

Consider the light-bulb law. Obama on the campaign trail promised to outlaw traditional incandescents. During the 2008 campaign, though, George W. Bush signed a law that effectively banned traditional incandescents by setting efficiency standards the old-fashioned bulbs couldn't meet.
