Fact-Checking The Chosen One

Here's a handy rundown of things that Obama said during a his press conference that are either bullshit or so twist the truth that it is tantamount to the same:
* 1 in 50 kids are homeless in America? Mickey Kaus calls bullshit on that.

* Reagan would have supported Obama's charitable deductions rollback, which won't affect at all what people give to charities? Reason writers Matt Welch and Jacob Sullum are on the case.

* Obama's cutting the budget deficit in half claim? Lots of people are calling him on that one.

* We cannot grow the economy without his budget's massive new spending? The Cato Institute's Chris Edwards is on that one.

* Obama's response on when he learned about the AIG bonuses and why he didn't talk about them earlier? Dissembling, at best.

There's more I'm sure, but I've gotta get to work.
