Skip to comments.Is Barack Obama a Compulsive Liar?
Posted on 10/01/2012 9:16:21 AM PDT by tobyhill
Barack Obama has lied about the terrorist attack on the American Consulate in Libya for over 15 days, even going so far as to overtly imply that this attack was prompted by an obscure internet movie trailer in his speech at the United Nations two weeks after it was confirmed the White House knew it was an Al Qaeda sponsored attack.
Additionally, during the current campaign the lies and obfuscations about Mitt Romney and the Republicans have been so fast and furious that it is nearly impossible to keep up with them.
The administration's reaction to what went on in Libya is not a surprise, as reliance on prevarications and the attendant dishonesty is part and parcel of Obama's normal behavior. There rarely has been a speech or an off the cuff comment since he entered the national stage that does not contain some deliberate or insinuated falsehood. This tendency is exemplified in his recent interview with Univision wherein Obama lied about why he never introduced immigration reform and when the ill-fated Fast and Furious program was raised, he began blaming the Republicans and George Bush respectively.
There is now a near universal mistrust of Obama among world leaders as well as many members of Congress who candidly admit they cannot deal with Barack Obama, as he has proven himself to be untrustworthy and unbelievable -- particularly as he refuses to accept any responsibility for the outcome of his actions and policies. The diminished status of the United States around the globe and the greatly eroded standard of living for the vast majority of Americans are testament to these character flaws.

Birds of a feather...........
can anyone say “con artist”
The Lame Stream Media and their enablers, the Lame Stream Electorate.
Compulsive, impulsive, replusive.... yes yes yes
The real question is “has he ever told the truth publically?”
Well, there was that "my Muslim faith" moment with Stephanopoulos . . .
And the Obamadork/felon/cretin/idiot is not even good at that.
For good quality lying, one just go to Bubba Clinton.
Let’s face it, virtually everything about the Obamadork is fake...except his very obvious failures.
It’s pretty conclusive that the MSM went from being biased (5 yrs ago) to part of the Democrat campaign structure (journ0list) when Baraq started running for POTUS.
Their investigative reporting was focused on the status of Joe the plumber’s trade license and the DNA of Palin’s Down Syndrome child.
Yes, but little 4 foot Georgie corrected him and he “recanted.”
The media has no concept of how to be journalistss; It sucks that this monstrous machine has so much power and I resent being held hostage by them. Wish I was brilliant enough to figure out a way to hold them accountable.
I know a few of them; one I’ve known for around 15 years, and has pulled it on me more than once.
Obama must be profitable for these liars in the Media. They could care less what he had done and will do to the country.
I have meetings with people like this. When they are losing a debate, they completely make things up which we cannot dispute since we have no idea whether it’s true or not until later. Problem is that by then it’s usually too late, the meeting is over and their message and “truth” are out there. Very difficult to undo. The other problem is that if Romney tries to pull this himself, legions of media “fact-checkers” will be bombarding the airwaves pointing out his fallacies all the way to 11/6. Romney has to be able to effectively deal with this tactic to win any debate with 0.
About the Romney-Obama debate Wednesday night, Rush just said that we should keep track of each Obama lie. The stack of paper would be nearly the size of the ObamaTAX bill.

Don't watch their shows, news or otherwise. Don't buy their magazines, newspapers or books. Don't support their advertisers, and support organizations. Don't buy products from lib supporting companies. Don't give them money in any way shape or form................
“Compulsive lying, also called Mythomania, is a rather common symptom of mental illness. This disorder presents an acute challenge by its very nature because health care professionals cannot always tell if the patient is telling the truth with regard to symptoms. Compulsive or pathological liars are often so convincing that they consistently beat polygraph tests and convince themselves that their lies are the truth.”
Sounds about right!
Most Democrats are liars because they’re socialists not Democrats. JFK would be sickened by today’s ‘Democrat’ party.
I think most famous politicians are compulsive liars and narcissists. Telling the truth won’t get you elected. People aren’t interested in facts or the truth. They’re interested in what makes them ‘feel good’ and lying usually fills that void.
Are his lips moving? Then yes.
I don’t concur. I agree that our political system today reflects our national thinking, which IMHO has become degenerately corrupt, to the point of being criminal.
I do recognize there exists a skill in identifying the body politic, representing that body with language, which isn’t provocative, but may be quite controversial, and leading the nation through faith in Christ on a path in His Plan. That skill, if finely honed, would be best described as an art of politic.
Just as there are many peoples, there also may be many varieties in politics, but still one Plan by God.
It really begins with the people in our political system. When we as a nation fail to walk through faith in Christ, we don’t advance any cause, other than our degeneration.
I also have recognized in Obama, when I discern a falsehood being made in one part of his argument, and observe his behavior, ...he continues even deeper into his contrivance, with a somewhat skilled art in delivery, as some actors might behave in their thinking.
I don’t know if it is compulsive, but I recognize he manifests less conscientiousness of having ever misled anybody, than promoting ludicrous extreme corruption void of justice. IMHO, he is likely more criminally insane than simply a clever liar.
All good thoughts, Cvengr.
No, he’s a muslim sock puppet for a commie billionaire bent on destroying the west......If he told the truth he’d be toast. That’s not compulsive lying, that’s survival lying.
