Barack Obama is a Liar
Says Dobbs/Limbaugh Caused Doubling of Hate Crimes Against Hispanics

Lou Dobbs Tonight -- CNN -- May 23  

    Pilgrim: Senator Barack Obama last night told a Florida crowd that Lou contributed to a rise in hate crimes in this country. This is not the first time Senator Obama has attacked Lou and this broadcast and it's not the first time the senator has been wrong on the facts. Bill Tucker reports.
    Obama: We're not going to solve the problem if we're just shouting about it like Lou Dobbs and folks on television.
    Tucker: On the campaign trail in the middle of the primaries.
    Obama: And so when I hear Rush Limbaugh or you know Lou Dobbs or some of these people talking about how we need to send them all back. We're not going to send them all back. First of all, this is a country of immigrants.
    Tucker: And as the primary season comes to a close at a fundraiser closed to cameras in Florida Thursday night the senator again took aim at Lou, saying quote, "There's a reason why hate crimes against Hispanic people doubled last year. If you have people like Lou Dobbs and Rush Limbaugh ginning things up, it's not surprising that would happen." The senator's campaign staff could not tell us where he got his stats. But they're wrong, according to the FBI, hate crimes against Hispanics rose at a much slower rate than other groups and they certainly didn't double in 2006.
