From WTF Obama WTF ( What's The Facts?)
Obama WTF defines "DOCUMENTED LIE " as :
1) a statement by one or more reliable news agencies or credible authorities citing supporting verifiable facts which rebut a reported statement by Obama.
2) observable video/transcript contradictions
3) the omission of an important fact the exclusion of which defies common sense unless the intent is to deceive
This therefore EXCLUDES unintentional gaffes eg the Auschwitz Memorial Day blip; the 57 States etc which can be found at New Gaffe City
This therefore also excludes Flip Flops unless
a) Obama is seen to be holding multiple positions depending on the audience, eg The Jerusalem flip flop...where his position was altered with 18 hours, talking to different audiences.Credit to each of the following news outlets who are some of the most cited in the List of Documented Lies:
or b) Obama lies about holding a different position e.g denying he favored gun control
