52.) University Of Chicago Hospital Pay Is Fair - LIAR, your wifes pay raise was nearly 150% her already bloated rate and the hospital is a Non-Profit Hospital, which made $100,000,000 in the last 3 years. They overcharge blacks VS whites for services, and overcharge everyone in general by 538%!
53.)I Barely Know Rezko - Only 5 Billed Hours - LIAR, you have known him for 17 years, and decided to do a real estate deal with him during a time when he was proven to be under investigation. Despite this, you divided your property and had them take off $300K before the mortgage problems started. Then Rezkos wife buys the lot beside it that you cant afford, saving you $625,000.
54.) My Donations Have Been Checked Thoroughly - LIAR, you only gave back Hsu ($72K) and Rezko (first $66K, then when caught lying $86K, then when caught lying again $150K and now caught lying YET AGAIN OBAMA, its $250k) their money when publically called on their involvement in your campaigns.
55.) My Church Is Like Any Other Christian Church - LIAR, your church is so extreme, the pastor who married you, Rev. Wright, just got done blaming the US for 9/11 and named Louis Farrahkan their person of the year.
56.) I Disagree With My Church All The Time - LIAR, you still have yet to repudiate Wright, who married you and your wife, and you still donate large sums of money to assist the church in furthering its message - hatred and revenge. You donated in 2006 alone, $22,500 to the church that you so terribly disagree with. That is nearly $500 PER WEEK - that sure is disagreement, Senator Obama.
57.) I Have Clean Connections Despite Rezko - LIAR, you are not only connected to Exelon and Rezko, you are also connected to Hillary PAC supporter Mr. Hsu, AND an Iraqi Billionaire of ill repute, Nadhmi Auchi, who ripped off people in the Food For Oil, Iraqi deal. Seems Mr. Auchi may have helped Obama buy his million dollar property long before Obama had millions of dollars. Wonder what favors Mr. Auchi expects, when Obama leaves Iraq free to be taken over by special interests such as him.
58.) I never heard sermons like Rev. Wrights, that have been in videos all day, You Tube - LIAR! 3 days later during your Mea Culpa BS speech you said Did I hear controversial statements while I sat in that church? Yes I did.
59.) The Passport Invasion is a conspiracy to find dirt on me! - LIAR. Your own Campaign Foreign Policy Advisor is the CEO of the company that looked into your records. PS - You had them look into yours to hide the fact you looked into Clintons and McCains more than a year before!
60.) Rev. Meeks has nothing to do with my campaigning - LIAR. Rev. Meeks appeared in ads for your Senate Campaign, donated to you, and helped raise money, then AND NOW. PS - He also seems to despise America.
61.) My wife didnt mean America is ignorant, she was just using a phrase - LIAR. Again, MicHELLes comments perfectly sync with Wrights, Meeks, and Farrakhans, both in language, anger, and direction.
62.) I am very Anti-Terror - LIAR. [03/30/2008] One of your good pals is long time radical and terrorist William Ayers, with whom you have been seen in the last 12 months and who has helped the now jailed khalidi, Professor at Columbia who invited Ahmadinejad to the University, to raise money for Palestinian terrorism attacks against Israel. PS - Your church published a pro Hamas Manifesto - guess you werent there on THAT Sunday either? How lucky for you.
63.) I have the best plan to cure the Mortgage Crisis - LIAR. [03/30/2008] You and your campaign buddy Penny SubPrime Bank Collapse Prizker have had your little fingers full of subprime cash - Obama has taken $1,180,103 from the top issuers of subprime loans: Obama received $266,907 from Lehman, $5395 from GMAC, $150,850 from Credit Suisse First Boston, $11,250 from Countrywide, $9052 from Washington Mutual, $161,850 from Citigroup, $4600 from CBASS, $170,050 from Morgan Stanley, $1150 from Centex, and last but certainly NOT LEAST - Obama received $351,900 from Goldman Sachs. I am sure that cash all came from folks who knew the subprime loan they had was a dream, eh?
64) I played greater role in crafting liberal stands on gun control, the death penalty and abortion - LIAR - [03/31/2008] It was found that Obama the day after sitting for the interview filed an amended version of the questionnaire, which appears to contain Obamas own handwritten notes added to one answer. Read Obama had greater role on liberal survey
65) I did NOT play the race card: - LIAR - [03/31/2008] Obama was the first to play the race card. According to Phialdelphia Inquirer, Quietly, the storm over the hateful views expressed by Sen. Barack Obamas pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, has blown away the most insidious myth of the Democratic primary campaign. Obama and his surrogates have charged that Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton has deliberately and cleverly played the race card in order to label Obama the black candidate. Read more here
66) I did not take money from oil companies: - LIAR - [03/31/2008]
THE FACTS: True enough, Obama does not take money from oil companies. No candidate does. It is illegal for corporations to give money to politicians. Corporations, however, do have political action committees that collect voluntary donations from employees and then donate them to candidates. Obama doesnt take money from PACs. He also doesnt take money from lobbyists.
But he does accept money from executives and other employees of oil companies and two of his fundraisers are oil company executives. As of Feb. 29, Obamas presidential campaign had received nearly $214,000 from oil and gas industry employees and their families, according to an analysis by the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics. Clinton had received nearly $307,000 from industry workers and their families and Republican Sen. John McCain, the likely GOP presidential nominee, received nearly $394,000, according to the centers totals.
Two of Obamas fundraisers are Robert Cavnar, the chairman and chief executive of Houston-based Mission Resources Corp., and George Kaiser, the president and CEO of Tulsa-based Kaiser-Francis Oil Co. Source: Associated press via Yahoo News
67) I dont think my church is actually particularly controversial, Obama said at a community meeting in Nelsonville, Ohio, earlier this month. - LIAR - But yesterday, he told a different story. Did I ever hear him make remarks that could be considered controversial while I sat in church? Yes, he said in his speech yesterday in Philadelphia.
68) Look at my education record in Illinois - LIAR - In reality, Obama never really championed the local councils. He supported them behind the scenes and only eventually came out publicly on their behalf. When he did weigh in, he came down on the wrong side of the debateagainst protecting principals from unwarranted dismissals and in favor of keeping councils independent, no matter what. In the end, the resolution of the conflict between the two sides didnt alleviate anyones concerns. Instead, it prolonged a turf battle that seems to have dragged down academic progress in the years since. Read more here http://www.slate.com/id/2188010?wpisrc=newsletter
Great starter list. Can’t wait to email ad nauseum to all my lib friends.
good grief man, how long did it take you to come up with that list? You have a lot of time on your hands. I was already going to vote for McCain, but now you have completely cemented me in the McCain column.
Don’t be so mean to Obambi, he can’t help it......
Hillary took a village in Kosovo.
LOL, I didn’t make the list, I copied it from the aforementioned blog.
Thanks for the documentation.
nice, easy to read format. ideally should be footnoted, though.
Dude, cite your sources, and you have a winner.
Also, collect identical lists for Hitlery, and McCain, and we can start a write in movement.
Obama Claims Special Birth
Not to be outdone by Democratic presidential rival Senator Hillary Clintons bogus claims to have been named after the man who climbed Everest six years after her birth and narrowly escaped death in Bosnia, Senator Barack Obama claimed that a 1965 civil rights march in Selma Alabama encouraged his parents to give birth to him in 1961.
According to Obama, the 1965 civil rights march inspired my father to abandon his wife in Kenya and come to America in 1960even dodging sniper fire when his plane landed at the Honolulu airportjust so he could marry a white woman and father the interracial child who would later become president and put an end to global racial injustice.
Senator Obama was born in Hawaii in August of 1961.
Dang! This is good. I’m forwarding to some non-freepers, one friend who leans too far to the left. She has a son who teaches at the University of Virginia, and who worships at obama’s feet. Make me sick. Perhaps she’ll pass this list on to her son. One can only hope.
It seems to be a contest to see who can tell the most lies. Obama better watch out. No one beats a Clinton in that game.
One other thing—I just watched the remake of “The Manchurian Candidate” with Denzel Washington and Liev Schreiber. There’s this one line that states: Cong Raymond Shaw, who was a political unknown, rose in a few short years to be candidate for Vice President. There’s similarity between the meteoric rise of Raymond Shaw and Barack Obama.
9.) I Was Fluent In Indonesian - LIAR, not one teacher says you could speak the language.
The Language is Bahasa or Bahasa Indonesian...
here’s a different kind of lie : “I don’t take money from oil companies.”*
*( everybody else does)
He’s a LIAR. He’s a Demoncrat. Problem?
Mr. Obama recalled the opening lines of the Arabic call to
prayer, reciting them with a first-rate accent. In a remark that
seemed delightfully uncalculated [...], Mr. Obama described the
call to prayer as "one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at
Send treats to the troops...
Great because you did it!
has Obama publicly renounced,
Allah, the prophet Mohammed, and the Koran?
“Obama claims special birth”
Much more so than we might believe.
1. Reports emanating from Africa indicate his mother was in Kenya with his ARAB Kenyan (NOT Black Kenyan) father - this is clearly shown in Kenyan Govt. Registry documents which list the father as an Arab Kenyan - at a very late term of her pregnancy and was not allowed on a flight to return to HAWAII. She gave birth to him in Kenya, immediately got on a plane and then registered him as being born in Hawaii.
2. He is NOT an African American at all but an Arab American and cannot claim African minority status, which by US Federal regulations require a person to have 1/8 (one eighth) of the minority blood (12%).
From his mother he has 50% white blood, from his father he has 43.25% Arab BLOOD and from his MATERNAL GRANDMOTHER he manages to hold onto 6.75% African or Black heritage blood.
He has had to duck and weave all his life and use whatever lies he could use to even “pass for Black” and the benefits that this minority status provided. So even this, while understandable - IS A documented LIE.
I would also suggest changing LIAR into "Not True" or "NOT TRUE".
That simple change would make the list look less polemic and more acceptable to those on the left considering Obama.
It has great potential as something to stick under the windshield wiper of every car with an Obama sticker on it.
Ping me when you get to 95. :)
Bump for tomorrow read.
AMazing list of lies - PING.
Can that be verified?
It would disqualify him from being President.
I have been trying to get some tangible documentation such as a ticket issued by the airline for an infant. They issue them for infanfs at about 10% of the fare but it’s a long time ago and the birth appears NOT to have been registered in Kenya. Probably a home birth within the family.
Needs deeper pockets than mine to do the research and travel. Mine barely get me through the month.
Good work. I would lessen the stridency some, remove the “Liar!” part and substitute the words “claim” and “truth” for the two part entries. The list of lies is long, but not readily researchable. References would scare the cr*p out of academia. The length of the list hammers the message home with ample force. The “liar” ad hominem is overkill and makes it harder for this potentially very effective piece to play to the middle and maybe into some liberal minds.
( length of list by September: PLENTY )
( Length of list by October: MORE THAN PLENTY! )
Who’s list is longer? OB’s or Hillary’s? If one of these ran for Vice-President the title would surely fit. (Vice)
but..but, he’s been “vetted”, right? /s
but..but, he’s been “vetted”, right? /s
Bombarang speed BUMP!
Thanks for this!
Any pictures of the father?
I'd propose a co-op project here on FR with 10 people taking 6-7 items in the list to do a full set of footnotes, but I think he will be out of the race after Indiana and it would be a wasted effort.
I think this guy is a manufactured product of his wife and some folks she hangs around with. I think she found him and decided he could be trained and marketed. His record is of office-holder, not someone with a cause to promote or represent.
His (recent) life story reads like the perfect military officer that got his ticket punched in all the right places without ever having done what was implied by the service time. And, he got injected into those positions each time by a curious alignment of the stars and circumstances.
You think the Clintons don't have this to drop about April 17th for discussion all weekend before the PA primary?
