Fact Check Michele Bachmann with Politifact and Flex

During the GOP presidential debate last night, Michelle Bachmann said this:

After the debate that we had last week, Politifact came out and said that everything I said was true.

Did Politifact really give her a “True” rating across the board for a performance in the previous debate?

The best way to check if you are on the go, is to use Politifact’s mobile application which was built with Flex and runs on the iPhone, the iPad, the BlackBerry PlayBook, the Kindle Fire, the Barnes and Noble Nook, and other Android devices… using the exact same code. 100% code reusability.

100% Code Reusability
I’ll let you check Michelle Bachmann statements in Politifact’s Mobile app, but since I helped build it, I can tell you that the 100% Flex code reusability across devices statement is absolutely “True”!

The Politifact Mobile application is available in the following app stores:

Apple App Store
Android Market
Amazon App Store
BlackBerry App World
Barnes and Noble Nook Store

    Interesting to know. I use the Politifact app to show clients what Flex is capable of on mobile devices. I was wondering if anyone from Adobe was directly involved since I saw the app was using the Parsley framework and it was released right about the time of Flex 4.5. Nice job.

    I love this blog and especially the Appliness app, and its my hope that it won’t attempt to inject thinly disguised political opinion within the articles. That would be a shame.

    Conceptually I’m OK with REST, but I’m quite new to actually writing code for jax-rs so I’ve been working through various online tutorials over the last few days. As far as my own searches show this is perhaps the most comprehensive and reliable source out there. I have not quite got everything working yet because I’m using Hibernate in the mid-tier, but the wine app example here has given me a huge boost.

    Christophe, many thanks for saving me from a world of pain by posting this up.

    Simon
