    Appearing on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Washington Post Fact Checker columnist Glenn Kessler said the lie with the “biggest bang” belonged to President Barack Obama.

    “Glenn, there’s a lot of lies this year, Pinocchio lies,” host Joe Scarborough pointed out. “What’s the top lie of the year?” (RELATED: Washington Post Fact Checker: Obama Flip-Flopped On Executive Amnesty)

    “Well, I don’t do a ‘top lie,’” Kessler said at first.

    Scarborough rephrased the question: ”What lie had the biggest bang?”

    “Well, I look at the issues that, you know, resonate with people, or big issues,” Kessler responded. “So one of the major things was Barack Obama saying that he was not specifically referring to ISIS when he referred to a JV team.”

    I nominate, "If you like your health care plan you can keep it" although that crosses several years.

    "The Republicans have filibustered over 500 bills in the last 5 years that would have helped the middle class", has got to be way up on the list. [Note: Not sure if it was 5 years or longer, but still, 500 bills filibustered? Edited to add: This one made the WaPo list. http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/fact-checker/wp/2014/12/15/the-biggest-pinocchios-of-2014/ And it was 500 bills filibustered since 2007.]
