Fact Checking Obama

It continues to amaze me how people care about what Obama says, when it's so often unrelated to what he does (or is simply provably false). Some detailed fact checking of last night's speech is over here at redstate, but the single most galling claim in my opinion is that Obama claims the debt he's facing is inherited. Check out the "inheritance" yourself:

What disappoints me most about this is that none of the major media fact checked this. They wouldn't have let Bush get away with the tiniest fudging of the facts.

I want to see that level of scrutiny (minus the outright malice) applied to every politician, whether they have a D or an R in front of their name. I never want to see the media display fawning submission to any politician.
