The highlight of yesterday's Sunday political talk shows was Rep. Paul Ryan's (R-WI) deceptive performance on Fox. Ryan misled on a range of topics, from the causes of the S&P downgrade of U.S. debt, to the drivers of that debt, to President Obama's policy positions, to the reasons businesses aren't expanding today, with plenty of stops in between. By comparison, Sen. John McCain's (R-AZ) dishonesty about Afghanistan and Social Security, Sen. Lindsey Graham's (R-SC) bogus economic statistics, and Sen. Jeff Sessions' (R-AL) deceit on deficits under President Bush and Democrats' willingness to cut spending were barely even blips on the radar.

Liz Cheney's New Ad Distorts Military Leaders' Testimony To Accuse President Obama Of Not Supporting The Troops
In a new ad attacking President Obama's timeline for withdrawing troops from Afghanistan, Liz Cheney's "Keep America Safe" PAC edits testimony from General David Petraeus and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Admiral Mike Mullen, to claim that "President Obama ignore[d] his generals' advice." In fact, both Petraeus and Mullen repeatedly indicated support for the president's drawdown schedule in their testimony, and both men described the long, deliberative and inclusive process behind the decision in terms that make the "ignore his generals" charge downright silly. The president's job as Commander in Chief is to exercise his own judgment based on the advice he receives, not to simply sign off on the recommendations of his military advisers.

Iowa Republican Steve King channeled Dick Cheney on Tuesday night, claiming that after the Democrats retook Congress in 2006 they held 44 different votes to "unfund, underfund or undermine" American soldiers. In the Cheney/King universe, any opposition to the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq gets more Americans killed.

Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) isn't the most likely candidate to rush to President Obama's defense, but he's bucking his party on the war in Afghanistan.

During a September 15, 2009 interview on Fox News, Sen. Lindsey Graham proclaimed, "I will not vote for money for Afghanistan or more troops unless we have benchmarks." Yet during similar debates surrounding the war in Iraq, Sen. Graham was a leading voice in opposition to this type of view.

On June 9, 2009, Senator Joe Lieberman threatened to filibuster the Supplemental Appropriations Bill funding the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan unless it contained an amendment allowing photos of detainee abuse to be exempt from the Freedom of Information Act. He was singing a different tune in 2007.
