In a fit of liberal exaggeration, Barack Obama increased the number of tornado victims in Kansas by 9,988. There were twelve victims, but 10,000 sounded so much more impressive to Obama. Had George Bush made this error the level of press sarcasm would have gone off the charts, but media darling Barack got a pass for being "caught up in the fervor of a campaign speech."
Liberals love victims, even if they are imagined. Their fantasies play better when fueled by the aroma of death and despair. Obama's speech about the National Guard in Kansas and the war in Iraq would be so much more moving if there were thousands of dead bodies waiting to be recovered. The Democrats will stand on corpses to make themselves look taller and obviously Obama is not ashamed to make the climb.
