All False statements involving Barack Obama

"There is no disagreement that we need action by our government, a recovery plan that will help to jump-start the economy."

"Senator McCain would pay for part of his (health care) plan by making drastic cuts in Medicare — $882-billion worth."

"The centerpiece of Senator McCain's education policy is to increase the voucher program in D.C. by 2,000 slots."

Under John McCain's health care plan, people get a $5,000 tax credit to buy a $12,000 health care policy, and "that's a loss for you."

John McCain accused Barack Obama "of letting infants die."

"Oil companies ...currently have 68-million acres that they're not using."

McCain "has opposed stem cell research."

"But if my opponent had his way, the millions of Floridians who rely on it would've had their Social Security tied up in the stock market this week."

"The fact is that although we have had a president who is opposed to abortion over the last eight years, abortions have not gone down.''

Oil companies "haven't touched" 68 million acres where they already have rights to drill.

Fully inflating tires is "a step that every expert says would absolutely reduce our oil consumption by 3 to 4 percent."

John McCain refuses to support a new bipartisan energy bill "because it would take away tax breaks from oil companies like Exxon Mobil."

The U.S. government spends less on energy innovation "than the pet food industry invests in its own products."

"Our National Guard, as we saw in the Midwest flooding, can't function as effectively as it could. I was talking to National Guard representatives. Fifteen of their 17 helicopters in this region were overseas during the flooding."

"I think we came down here (to Florida) one time ... but we weren't actively fundraising here."

"I have never said that I don't wear flag pins or refuse to wear flag pins."

"He's promising four more years of an administration that will push for the privatization of Social Security..."

"We are bogged down in a war that John McCain now suggests might go on for another 100 years."
