Obama-hating liar Dana Loesch lies during her "fact-checking" of the President

Disgraceful CNN "Contributor" and habitual anti-Obama liar Dana Loesch wrote in breitbart.com's Big Government to tell falsehoods about President Barack Obama's acceptance speech at the DNC 2012 in Charlotte.

Big Government:

At the heart of Obama's speech was the attempt to reprogram the American dream from one found in the freedom of individual liberty and owning one's own output, to "sharing" -- and by "sharing" he means the government will own your output. 
The socialistic phrases were present: 
"They knew they were part of something larger ...
... everyone shared in the pride of that success ...
It will require common effort, shared responsibility,
"I cut taxes for those who need it. Middle class families, small businesses." 
He did? Let's examine. 
The White House report released this week — ahead of the vote in the Senate Wednesday to extend tax cuts for household income below $250,000 — does mention two years of payroll tax cuts that Obama pushed through in 2011 and 2012, but only when talking about how much money the president has saved American families ...
In Obamacare alone there exist 20 new taxes, including taxes on medical device manufacturers and other small businesses. 

Obama said of the auto industry: 
I've worked with business leaders who are bringing jobs back to America – not because our workers make less pay, but because we make better products. Because we work harder and smarter than anyone else.
Except Obama ran Chrysler plants to Mexico and 61% is now owned by Italian company Fiat. GM is heading towards bankruptcy again and it's widely believe that the auto bailout was an utter failure.

Obama talks as though he's the savior of the middle class when his plans to bankrupt the coal industry would only make plentiful, inexpensive energy more expensive for those who can least afford it. 

Obama omitted his failure on free, parental choice in education: 
And now you have a choice – we can gut education, or we can decide that in the United States of America, no child should have her dreams deferred because of a crowded classroom or a crumbling school.
And yet it was Barack Obama who as a senator fought against school choice and he continued to do so as President
Obama shifted his message from "the war on terror is over" to "it's blunted" in his speech.
We've blunted the Taliban's momentum in Afghanistan, and in 2014, our longest war will be over. A new tower rises above the New York skyline, al Qaeda is on the path to defeat ...
Just the other day the Taliban claimed two more soldiers in an attack in Afghanistan. Six more just days before thatAugust was the deadliest month of war for our troops in Afghanistan. Conservatives don't itch for war anymore than the next guy, but the current process of going in without clear objectives and playing checkers with our soldiers' resources is the opposite of getting in if you have to and getting the hell out when you need to do so.
Around the world, we've strengthened old alliances ...
You don't accomplish this by approving of language excluding the capital of your ally and then, when the backlash hits, having Democrats on national television loudly booing the addition of it to your party's platform. 
You don't accomplish this by promising "flexibility" to Russia, or calling Nazi death camps "Polish death camps." (Other gaffes.)
 Obama mentioned Medicare, but just not how he gutted it:
And I will never turn Medicare into a voucher.
Kind of hard to give a voucher for something that, on your watch, won't exist for seniors. His own deputy campaign manager admitted he gutted it. 
President Obama did gut Medicare with his health care law. It was part of the fuzzy math employed to make Obamacare look less expensive than the real price tag. Sacrificing seniors for headlines.
Yadda, yadda, yadda. All lies by Loesch, especially the lies that she misleadingly claimed that "Obama's playing checkers with our soldiers' resources" and her attacks on Obamacare. She also distorted Obama's statement on Medicare.

The facts about President Obama that Loesch either neglected to tell to her readers or spin it against him:

OBAMA: "We will reform and strengthen Medicare for the long haul, but we'll do it by reducing the cost of health care, not by asking seniors to pay thousands of dollars more."
THE FACTS: Some of the proposals the Obama administration has floated in budget negotiations with Congress would ask Medicare beneficiaries to pay more. Among them: revamping co-payments and deductibles in ways that could raise costs for retirees and increasing premiums for certain beneficiaries.
Obama even indicated a willingness to consider raising the eligibility age, currently 65, to 67. As word of some of the proposals leaked out, the president faced a backlash from fellow Democrats. He has since said he would not accept Medicare cuts as a part of a deficit reduction deal, unless it also includes higher taxes on the wealthy. Still, some level of increased costs for middle-class and upper-income Medicare recipients is likely to be part of any future deficit reduction deal.
OBAMA: "You can choose a future where we reduce our deficit without wrecking our middle class. Independent analysis shows that my plan would cut our deficits by $4 trillion."
THE FACTS: Three years ago, Obama pledged to cut in half the deficit "we inherited" by the end
of his first term, a mark he's set to miss by a wide margin. The deficit when he took office was $1.2 trillion, and the $800 billion stimulus bill Obama signed soon afterward increased the shortfall to over $1.4 trillion. The White House predicts this year's federal budget deficit will end up at $1.2 trillion, marking the fourth consecutive year of trillion dollar-plus red ink.
Obama's new $4 trillion target over 10 years resets the goalposts with some fancy budget footwork. For one thing, it includes $1 trillion in cuts already signed into law. And it assumes that Congress will pass the administration's plan to raise the capital gains tax, boost taxes on households earning over $250,000 a year and impose a minimum 30 percent tax on incomes above $1 million. It also assumes a reduction in the amount of interest the government must pay on its debt.
OBAMA: "Millions of students are paying less for college today because we finally took on a system that wasted billions of taxpayer dollars on banks and lenders."
THE FACTS: "Technically it is true," said Bryan Cook, director of the Center for Policy Analysis at the American Council on Education. "How much of a savings is not clear."
OBAMA: "In 2014, our longest war will be over."
THE FACTS: Although most U.S. troops will leave Afghanistan by the end of 2014, thousands are likely to stay and continue a U.S. presence for years. There is no telling what fighting they might be drawn into, despite the decision to end the U.S. combat role.
Military leaders and administration officials have not yet said how many will stay, asserting that such decisions are far from being made. But analysts say the U.S. envisions a post-2014 force of as many as 20,000 American troops to continue training the Afghan forces, hunt terrorists and keep watch on Iran and other nations in the region.
