NBC fact check: Obama wrong on AZ immigration ‘model for the nation’ debate attack on Romney
Obama lies so frequently in attacking Romney, even NBC now feels compelled to point it out.
During Tuesday night’s debate, President Obama and Mitt Romney sparred over a lot, including immigration. At one point, Obama said of Romney, “He called the Arizona law a model for the nation.”
That isn’t true.
The issue has its roots in a GOP primary debate. In that debate, Romney said, “I think you see a model in Arizona,” but his campaign later clarified he wasn’t talking about SB 1070. During the debate, he was talking about E-verify, which was not passed in that law but in an earlier one in Arizona.
