Why Obama Lies
American Thinker ^ | April 19, 2012 | Ed Lasky

Posted on 04/19/2012 12:59:23 AM PDT by Flotsam_Jetsome

However, there may be a more fundamental reason we are so consistently lied to by Barack Obama and his allies: they just do not respect most Americans and have very little regard for our intelligence.

Where, one may ask, is the proof of this claim? Barack Obama and his closest advisers have in fact told us they don't think too highly of most Americans.

The tip off should have been Barack Obama's "gaffe" (Michael Kinsley's definition of a gaffe made by a politician is when he tells us how he truly thinks by accident) back in 2008 when he derisively described people who live in small-towns as bitter people who "cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them." Ah, yes, ignorant yokels sharing kinship if not genes with the Clampetts.

But his scorn is not reserved just for people who live in rural areas. He has also said that "I'm not interested in the suburbs. Suburbs bore me," so it may be a fair assumption that he does not have much respect for suburban dwellers either (though if the zip code is ritzy enough he may drop by for a fundraiser or two or two dozen).

*break* (edited for space)

He has said we have become "lazy" and grown "soft" over the years. He has mocked Republicans as being too dumb to understand a jobs bill he was trying to pass, so Democrats were going to have to break up the Jobs Bill into bite-sized pieces that were easier to understand.

A leader who has no respect for the people "below" him becomes emboldened to make all sorts of claims, confident that the dullards will not fathom they have been had.

Rush has explained this numerous times. Democrats cannot tell the truth about their agenda to turn America into a Euro-style socialist welfare state because (most) Americans understand that that agenda leads to the same kind of misery and mediocrity and economic calamity we see all across old Europe.

The Democrats HAVE TO lie.
It truly is that simple.

Anyone seen Kinsley of late? I haven’t. He’s obviously yesterday’s liberal pundit and no one in the media cares about him anymore. Good.

Because he’s a god unto himself. These people are a cult, they believe in a catechism that is inviolate and not to be questioned. Anyone who believes in it is automatically superior and not subject to scrutiny in their circular and hermetically sealed logic. They can lie to us with impunity because we are insects to them.

Why do you think they hate religion so much? Because it’s too much competition.

He’s a pathological narcissist. His lying is a habitual pattern.

Some pictures are worth millions of words. That is one of them.

Thanks.

People who don’t know what they’re doing can be divided into two camps: those who know they’re ignorant, admit it and ask for help...and those who know they’re ignorant, lie and become defensive and derisive when confronted.

You don’t have to guess to know which camp this asshat is in.

Islam teaches that it is acceptable and expected to lie to and deceive one’s enemies. ‘Taqqia’, I think is one term.

Why does Obama lie so much?

Why does any politician lie so much?

Because it wins elections.

One of the highly developed talents of President Barack Obama is the ability to say things that are demonstrably false, and make them sound not only plausible but inspiring.

-— “One of the highly developed talents of President Barack Obama is the ability to say things that are demonstrably false, and make them sound not only plausible but inspiring.” ——

That is his so-called gift. He’s a smooth liar. Sometimes I wonder if he’s perfectly possessed. I mean, the guy publicly supported infanticide, and still became president.

I’m patiently waiting for reports of Obama’s family members having engaged in occult practices, sometime in the distant past.

Thomas Sowell is a national treasure. If you haven't picked up his book "The Thomas Sowell Reader" yet, I highly recommend it.

I'd pay a large sum of money to see "Obama" attempt to debate Mr. Sowell on pretty much anything. Whomever would host such an event would do well to buy stock in popcorn futures beforehand.

It’s a lot like René Descartes when he said, “I think, therefore I am.” Obama’s version would be. “I’m a liberal, therefore I lie.”
