What Happens When You Can't Believe A Thing The President Says?
Forbes ^ | 6 Sep 2013 | Merrill Matthews

Posted on 09/08/2013 8:04:53 AM PDT by Rummyfan

I have come to the point that I cannot believe a thing President Obama says. That’s not quite the same as saying I don’t believe anything he says. When he speaks he may be telling the truth, he may not be, or he may be parsing his words to mislead. But it’s impossible to know which is which?

...

With respect to Syria, the president tells us there will be no U.S. boots on the ground. Um, would that be like:

•If you like your health coverage you can keep it. Most people won’t be able to.

•Health insurance premiums for a family would be $2,500 lower by the end of his first term in office. They were actually about $3,000 higher.

•The Obama administration was not responsible for proposing the budget sequester idea. Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward challenged this claim and forced the administration to backtrack.

•Money from the nearly $800 billion stimulus package would be spent on “shovel-ready projects” and unemployment would drop to 5.3 percent by the end of his first term. The president later conceded the projects weren’t as shovel ready as he had hoped and unemployment was 7.9 percent.

It means you’ve woken up to the modern world. I haven’t believed a word any president has said, even the ones I liked. They’re politicians, they can’t be trusted. The difference between the good ones and bad ones is results, both ends lie most of the time there’s a microphone in the room.

Well, as long as he has his tele prompter, I think we’re okay, he’ll follow the script.

Merrill, what took you so long to wake up or recover from what ever blocked your mental abilities.

Many of us never believed anything this psychopathic liar has ever sa in his lifetimes since we became aware of him in 2008.

I haven't listened to word he has spoken in about three years. He lies with every word uttered.

What happens you ask....just what is happening now. The US has lost any credibility it had left. Bush and Obama have destroyed it, possibly for decades to come .

IMO, zero is exclusively poll driven. His statements/decisions are not based on morals, American citizen concerns or the good of the country. He claims at times to be left of center; but he is hard left and the rest of the voters be damned.

Not always. It is those times he goes off script, tries to ad lib, attempts to make a joke (recall Kerry's joke about those serving in Iraq?) that Obama ends up saying something that the Team have to whitewash for weeks afterward.

For all his brilliance at reading the teleprompter, it -- the brilliance -- fades rapidly when he goes off script.

I seem to recall a Supreme Court justice yelling that during a State of the Union, and that justice got severely thrashed and trashed by the Media and the politicians.

I seem to recall another time, another SOTU, a Congressperson yelling the same, and he got severely thrashed and thrashed by the Media and the politicians.

We were warned, twice.

What happens? You realize any time obama’s lips are moving, he’s lying. Seriously, any and every time he strings together more than a few sentences (marked by a two or three um, ah, duh, pauses minimum) there will be a lie or two in there. I think he is incapable of being honest. He just has to lie.

I believe what he said to John Lott at U of Chicago when he told him he didn’t think individuals should be able to own guns.

Not to put too fine a point on it, but, in fact, the pResident later smirkingly admitted that there never were any shovel ready jobs!

One, of course Obama is liar, ALL Liberals are fifthly pathological habitual liars.

Two, Obama's lies are on the press. Obama has been lying since day 1, and since day 1 the press has been dutifully reporting his lies as truth. So why shouldn't Obama continue to lie? He knew he will never get called on it. It's only now that he pissed off other World leaders and went way too far with "I didn't say Red line" that the world Press is turning on him.

After the latest outrage, Barry claiming “I didn’t draw that red-line ... you did!” well, we know his supporters don’t have any respect for anyone or anything else, but if they can’t admit the mendacity there: they don’t have any respect for themselves.
And yes— I’m prepared to hear them say, “He didn’t say that!” even though his statement escaped the memory hole and is there for anyone with a molecule of self-respect to see and acknowledge.

His big agenda has a name which must not be spoken. And until it is, his smaller statement must be taken as lies. Domestically, is he a Socialist, or not? Globally, is he an Islamist, or not? Until he speaks to those questions he’s not to be trusted.
