Dishonest CNN factcheck

As I wrote here, Joe Biden was being less than honest when he said Obama would never meet with Iranian president Ahmadinejad without preconditions in the first year of his presidency. In a “factcheck”, CNN shows that they’re in the bag for Obama by parsing “leader” and “president”. Newsflash. President Ahmadinejad is an Iranian leader and the country’s highest elected official. Whether he is the leader of Iran is irrelevant. The Obama campaign is dishonestly to trying to slide away from Obama’s remarks in July 2007 by parsing words in Clintonian fashion, and CNN is the latest enabler.
