Does Obama Lie Pathologically?
self | September 26, 2010 | Off Grid Blogger

Posted on 09/28/2010 3:34:26 PM PDT by grumpa

I have been reading David Limbaugh’s runaway best-selling book Crimes Against Liberty: An Indictment of President Barack Obama. In it, Limbaugh makes some astounding documented claims against an American president. One of them is a long list of the president’s lies. I decided to see of anybody is keeping track of these lies on the internet. Here is what I found:

Now, to be fair, Obama supporters are making an effort to discount as many of these lies as they can. They might say that some are taken out of context, or his opinion legitimately changed, etc. But even if a fraction of these are outright deliberate bald-faced lies--as they seem to be--we are looking at a man who is the most astounding liar to ever appear in American public life.

I looked up some definitions of a pathological or compulsive liar:

You be the judge. Is President Barack Hussein Obama one of these?

None of the constructs apply to this one. He lies because there is no truth in him.

Question: "Does Obama Lie Pathologically?"

Response: In order to lie one must understand A and then declare its opposite B as true.(Ommitting failure to declare what should be declared.) I doubt he can understand A. People constantly mistake glibness with intelligence, knowledge and understanding. "The Divine One" is merely glib.

The ability to lie profusely is a prerequisite of all politicians seeking the "progressive" agenda.

People don't want what they're selling. They have no choice.

The only thing that would ever surprise me about this clown is if he told the truth.

It is worse than lying. It it some type of double speak intentionally used to advance their agenda. It is why his words and action do not match. Pelosi and soros also do this. The names of bills and organizations are the opposite of what they do. Like Free Press

The lies to pass obamacare seem criminal

Obama's problem may not be so much of him lying as it is his need to always be right.

Much of what we see as lies is really Obama initially making a claim and taking action based on that claim, and then repeatedly stating that the claim was correct and the action was justified and the results are what was expected, regardless of the eventual outcome.

The more that people criticize Obama, the more he will dig in his heels and insist that he was right and we're not giving things enough time to play out.

I just finished Michelle Malkin’s “Culture of Corruption.” It is eye-opening. I recommend it to everyone. She is a fearless revealer of the truth. At some point, Obama is going to be deep sixed. Sooner than later. sd

It doesn’t, but it acts like a cat never the less.

NO, he didn’t lie.

Then again, he didn’t take the words seriously anyway.

His life is a lie. He started out as a cute little boy, the product of an unlikely coupling. No matter how he likes to paint it, his life was big-time dysfunctional...and so was his mother. Somehow along the way, he figured out that he just didn't fit the mold anywhere he lived. So, he rebelled and gravitated to those on the societal fringes.

Several acquaintances along the way guided his thinking and his arrogance. Starting with his very strange mother and odd grandparents, he was further mentored by Frank Marshall Davis, who planted a lot of anger within his brain. And so, he was on his way to seek out others who were angry along his pathway to the future. Among them, Bill Ayres...and who could be an angrier and more misguided man than he?

And then, he got to the point where he could organize the angry in his Chicago community (Marshall's old stomping grounds). After that, he stirred up enough of the angry to vote for him for the highest office of all.

Did he lie along the way in order to get what he wanted? Does he lie today? You betcha.

He is probably swimming with a whole group of corrupt people, including his up bringing. Lying for him may be the norm.

My fear is that the Dims have something up their sleeve which makes them think they can lie, cheat and steal with impunity. Eventually, the MSM will have to play it straight or go out of business. What is it that they think they know that we don’t know? Are all the elections rigged from here on? Are we going to be attacked and they will be the puppet government? What?

They are called politicians.

Okay, some of them are politicians.

They always spin things so as to make themselves look good.

Separating lies from the usual spin or a pathology from business as usual can be difficult.

Over time they probably do lose the ability to distinguish between their fabrications and reality: it's an occupational hazard.

But when you see a politician who's lost the ability to spin or lie, you see someone at the end of his or her career.

My gut tells me that they don’t have anything up their sleeve. They are so used to getting their way with the MSM that they don’t think beyond tomorrow. I think tomorrow is about to hit them in the pre-frontal cortex.

Yeah, the elections have been rigged. Think Crooked County, Ill. They bought the election for Kennedy over Nixon.

Today, thanks to the internet, they don’t have the luxury of the shadows.

SEIU is being outed, as are crooked county election commissions across the country. (SEIU-UAW_IBEW-CWA-AFL-CIO-ETC,ETC) We need to stand tall, kick butt and take names. The good guys are about to take control. Believe. sd

There are a few notable exceptions: Ronald Reagan in the past and Chris Christie in the present come immediately to mind. However, by and large they are, on the whole, self-serving and mendacious.

His lying is Pavlovian: a learned response.
He’s been rewarded his whole life for lying.

Clinton was the same way and perhaps a similarity of their mothers’ personalities is the root cause.

The eaffect of Political Correctness on Obama’s ‘educators’ makes his lying noticeably less smooth than Clinton’s.

He wasn’t ever challenged to be good- even at his lying.
