A fact check shows that most of the references in President Obama’s acceptance speech were accurate. But there were a few caveats.
Obama took out of context a statement by Romney about the end of the Iraq war, and while Obama sidestepped discussion of his mother’s fight with insurance companies over her cancer coverage - an issue that tripped him up with fact checkers earlier this year - Biden resurrected the subject.
