Spin is nothing new in politics and sometimes it reaches the level of outright lying. When recently asked about campaign ads being "misleading" and "just not true," President Barack Obama admitted that "somebody could dispute how we are presenting things." No surprise there but what is surprising and exceedingly dangerous for Team Obama, is that they have started to believe their own presentations.

For the past twenty-four hours, the mainstream media and other supporters of President Barack Obama have been trying to figure out why their candidate lost Wednesday night's debate. Some blamed his professorial manner. Others blamed his body language. Al Gore even blamed the altitude in Denver. But the truth is Mr. Obama was not able to defend his record or make a case for extending his presidency because he, and those who support him, are just plain wrong. The president didn't let liberals down. The ideology they share with him did.

For months we've seen hundreds polls on the upcoming presidential race from every organization imaginable. There have been polls showing bounces and anti-bounces, polls showing a slight lead for one candidate and then the other and, most often, polls showing the race is a dead heat within the margin of error. But instead of the usual four percent most polls claim as the margin of error, a new poll (yes, I see the irony) shows the real difference between the poll results and the election results could be much more.
