Ted Cruz: Just tell us the truth, Mr. President
washingtonexaminer.com ^ | 5/14/2013 | Ted Cruz

Posted on 05/15/2013 6:29:00 AM PDT by RoosterRedux

It's never comforting to have one's longstanding fears confirmed. Yet, that's exactly what's happened over the last week as Americans have been presented with a stunning array of facts that diminish faith in our government.

Whether it's on foreign policy, taxes, or the health-care system our lives depend on, members of the Obama Administration are making it harder to trust them to perform the most very basic functions of public service.

*snip*

Next, the Department of the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration has found that conservative and Tea Party groups, after complaining for years of being unfairly targeted by the IRS, were indeed, singled out for extra scrutiny - harkening back to the dark tactics employed by the Nixon Administration and its "enemies list."

Likewise, it appears that Jewish and pro-Israel groups were also targeted. Senior officials at IRS have known since 2011 that the agency had inappropriately flagged these groups, yet, IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman testified - falsely - to Congress in March 2012, "There's absolutely no targeting."

*snip*

Finally, there's Obamacare--legislation that was passed for the stated purpose of making healthcare more affordable. News stories are published almost daily showing how it's destroying jobs and driving up the cost of care.

The Associated Press reported this week that now the law could make life-saving cancer drugs prohibitively expensive, possibly increasing prices to $2,000 a month.

LOL! Like he has any clue what the truth is. Our little king hussein is such a habitual liar that he wouldn’t know the truth if it smacked him upside the head. Lucky for us though that he always gets the facts before making a statement. Right eh?

Agreed!

Obama, along with being a clinical narcissist, is an habitual liar. He actually surrounds himself with so many untruths that he has entire teams of people to keep track of it all. This is the mark of a sociopath, and I believe Obama's cracking behind the scenes.

He'll never tell the truth. It means admitting that he's not everything he's pumped himself up to be.

Good luck with that.You're talking about a guy that would rather climb a tree & lie, than stand on the ground and tell the truth.

The truth is that all of these scandals (plus the ones we don't know about yet) are aimed at overthrowing the Constitution. And now you know why Øbama and the commies want to take our guns.

Hahaha, there is absolutely no way Odumbo can tell the truth because there are far too many lies interconnected and to cover.

“Cincinnati also has authority over Key Presidential Battleground States of Ohio, Virginia, Florida, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, New Hampshire and Michigan that contained the 68 competitive electoral votes....”

Interesting how the Cincinnati IRS office just happened to be the IRS office implicated in the scandal.

Democrat Obama used the IRS to cheat in the election. the 2012 election is invalid.

t’s never comforting to have one’s longstanding fears confirmed.


I relate to that.

As a 45 year resident of Seattle, I purchased a small farm in central KY two weeks before the 2008 elections, partly for prepper purposes. I didn’t care who won. I thought we may go down.

Well, in August of 2011 I quit my Seattle job, found similar work in KY and moved here. I often find myself lulled into an attitude of “The future will be similar to the past” even though I am ten times the prepper I was when I first bought the property. I believe events have justified it.

So here I am, hoping I am wrong and everything will just be hunky dory, but it is actually ramping up more every month. And it seems to be exponentially unfolding.

Reminds me of those old early 70’s seatbelt commercials, “Sure, he was right. Dead right.”

I have children and grandchildren. I hate being vindicated in this thing. But I am buying more ammo, solar power, etc...

Sorry, Senator. That's not going to happen.

You're going to have to tell it for him.

Truth is an outdated and stupid concept. Truth is too abrasive and ridged. Truth has to be replaced something metaphorical ,vague and sophisticated. Truth means commitment. Today’s communication requires flexibility. In short, truth does not “get it” in today’s politics. Wise up people.

“He’ll never tell the truth.”

The loyalty of all these people lies with their objective, not with any oath to uphold a constitution or to “tell
the truth”.

Lies, untruths, intentional misinformation are not wrong, but always right when the objective is furthered.

They smirk as they lie and say that everyone else is lying.

Mr. Goebbles surely would be smiling by now. (Not to mention Mr. Alinsky.)

IMHO
