Is President Obama A Pathological Liar?
Investor's Business Daily ^ | 06/20/2012

Posted on 06/21/2012 9:36:55 AM PDT by kingattax

The Obama Record: The most frightening aspect of this president may not be his radical ideology but his rank dishonesty in selling that ideology. Now he's been caught lying about family racism.

In "Dreams from My Father," his 1995 memoir, Obama used the story of his paternal grandfather's imprisonment and torture at the hands of British colonists in Kenya as an example of white cruelty.

He claimed Hussein Onyango Obama was unjustly detained for six months before being released a crippled, lice-ridden "old man." In fact, none of it is true, according to Washington Post editor and biographer David Maraniss,

Given what I personally have determined about Obama, a much better question is “has Obama EVER told the truth?”

I think he is. Along with being a dangerous narcissistic megalomaniac and possible sociopath.

But unlike some liars, I hinbk he knows when he is lying. But he has correctly estimated the intelligence of most of the idiots who support him and so has no concern about them making an issue of it.

No. Clinton is a pathological liar. Obama simply wants nothing of his past discovered that hasn’t been media spun.

Obama is a liar but he lies for a purpose. Clinton lied simply to lie because he knew nobody would ever call him on his lies.

It’s certainly taken a LONG time for some to start figuring this out. Now, he actually looks for opportunities to LIE—like the executive privilege crap he’s trying to pass off as his right as the king.

An added detail that I didn't know until recently regarding Zero's claim that his mother was denied health insurance during her battle with cancer.

Not only was she fully covered by her insurance company, but Zero was acting as her lawyer during that time, and so would have been intimately familiar with the details of his mother's case.

The man is not only a pathological liar, but a fantasist of Munchausian proportions.

Muslims see lies as a useful tool. They feel no shame in lying (at least to non-Muslims, and probably other Muslims as well).

Furthering the agenda is much more important than that
Bourgois concept of the “truth”.

Truth is only that which will further the agenda.

This is eHows’ definition of PATHOLOGICAL LIAR:

“Pathological liars are, in essence, people who lie more often than they tell the truth, usually for self-serving purposes. They’ve discovered that they can get what they want more easily by telling lies, and they do it so often that lying becomes a routine behavior. Unfortunately, many pathological liars suffer from other psychological illnesses, such as personality disorders. They cannot be trusted.”

I think we, who cared, knew before he was even elected.

Let’s see:

Kerry testified that American forces in Vietnam raped women, killed children, cut off ears and ‘ravaged the countryside’ like the ‘hordes of Genghis Khan’.

Clinton committed perjury and has created laundry lists of evasions and downright falsehoods.

And don’t get me started on Al Gore.

Will Obama improve on what has become a truly formidable Democrat record for pathological mendacity?

I believe Greg Dulli of the Afghan Whigs summed up the existence of Obama with the lyric...

“A lie? The truth? Which one will I use?”

Wasn’t talking about him, but it fits perfectly.

Any relative of Obungi deserves to be tortured.

But on a lighter note, I doubt that his real father Frank Marshall Davis, the bisexual child raper and Stalinist poet, has any close relatives in Africa.

Question: "Is .... Obama A Pathological Liar?"

Answer: Yes.

Comment: Except for those statements wherein he is unable to tell the difference between lies and the truth. With this buffoon such statements are more frequent than realized by many.

The meaning was lost in translation. What he meant was a different action and involved a pooch.

His pathological lying is just a one symptom.

He’s got more mental problems than you can shake a stick at.

After he’s run from his office we may see some very interesting stories about his delicate psyche. Underneath the facade is pretty much an evil tyrant.

When asked if he was a pathological liar, President Obama replied ‘No’ and then made the oceans stop rising.

Is Obama a pathological liar? Is he a bigger liar than Clinton? Is it possible to be a leader of the American left without being a liar? Is there a single Democrat in Washington, in the media, or anywhere who isn’t a liar, either by intention, or through ignorance?

Liar, yes.

Pathological, no.

Clinton was a pathalogical liar. He was good at it because he was able to convince himself his lies were true.

Obama is not pathological in the least. He is shrewd and calculating. His biographical lies were shrewdly chosen to create a persona that would cater to the socialist base that elected him.

No, he is not pathalogical in the least. All of his lies are calculated and by design. They serve his purpose.

In both his autobiographies, Obama paints a false portrait of a still-racist America and West, where he, his friends and relatives are victimized by that racism.

Oh how I wish I could be victimized as much as Obama.

Occidental College, Hahvahd, Illinois state senator, US Senator, President.

My, how whitey has kept you down, Barry.
