To be fair, it has been the practice of politicians since the beginning of politics to set up straw men - false arguments or choices - and proceed to knock them down. Having said as much, there is no one better at it than Barack Obama.

This short compilation video from our friends at Washington Free Beacon captures some of his best efforts. Among them:

“Why are folks working so hard for people not to have health insurance?”


“What's wrong with helping young people get ahead?”


“Pursuing peace and freedom beyond our borders is not to say that every problem has a military solution.”

America is tired of unnecessary political division like this.
