Skip to comments.Scarborough: Obama a ‘deliberate,’ ‘flagrant’ liar (video included)
Posted on 10/30/2013 2:53:20 AM PDT by onyx
On Tuesdays broadcast of Hugh Hewitts radio show, MSNBC Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough hammered President Barack Obama for what he called lies during the sales job for his 2010 health care law.
Scarborough was asked by Hewitt if he had any idea how many people would ultimately lose their health care coverage because of that law. Scarborough replied by saying many more Americans would be impacted by that law than what then-President George W. Bush had said in his 2003 state of the union speech regarding Iraq trying to procure yellow cake uranium from Niger.
Im trying to figure it out right now, Scarborough said. Somebody thought 10 million, 11 million. This morning we were talking about it and you know, you had administration officials coming on saying it wasnt a big deal, but its a huge deal. I mean the president especially and I talked a lot this morning about it I asked Mike Barnicle this morning, How many people actually sift through the words of a state of the union address and allows the president of the United States to say something Lisa Myers found out last night, several members of his administration knew about and the president knew about?
I mean for the president to deliberately mislead millions and millions of Americans in a state of the union address certainly seems to me to have as much impact or more impact on the day-in, day-out lives of millions and millions of Americans than the 16 words George Bush is crucified for saying in the 2003 state of the union address.
Hewitt pointed how some left-leaning pundits have openly admitted Obama lied, to which Scarborough said they didnt have much of a choice.
What else can you do? Scarborough replied. You know, I asked everyone this morning a lot of White House reporters this morning, whats the White Houses spin? I asked Chuck Todd, whats the White Houses spin? He said they dont have one. It is such a deliberate it was such a flagrant lie when youre telling people they can keep their insurance policies if they want to. Now I had a lot of people, a lot of conservatives last night, tweeting, interrupting my Red Sox game, tweeting saying why didnt you guys report about this a couple of years ago?
Well, I think we all knew this was the case, that the president and the administration was misleading the American people, Scarborough continued. What was new with Lisa Myers revelation was last night was it had three or four people that were actually working with the president who said the president knew at the time and let them know at the time that what he was saying was not the truth.
Hewitt went on to ask if he thought Obama knew at the time he wasnt telling the truth about Obamacare.
Of course, Scarborough replied. How could he not?
Careful, Joey. You’d better remember who pays your salary.
It was pretty obvious he was a deliberate, flagrant liar before he was elected as Impostor-In-Chief.
And the “news media” covered for him.
Well of course, *Morning Joe* has to keep up his conservative credibility, ROTFLMAO!
They are the masters of the big lies for 100+ years now.
Joe will walk it back in 3..2..1
I thought you were going back to bed.
Obvious to thinking people. Not to the 43% they didn't care ZERO was going to make US pay not them.
And yet they’re all still tiptoeing around the word “lied”.
Back ain’t hurting anymore, but now ain’t sleepy, I can’ts win.
I hear you.
That's a pretty long count for old Joe :)
Is he shooting for a FNC contract? When is his PMSNBC contract up?
Maybe he thinks he can co-host with Megyn Kelly.
Mooslimes engage in taqiyya.
Comrade obamatollah does both.
Yeah What’s up with her? Has the FNC slid further to the left?
I missed that one.
And oh yeah, Obama can keep his Scarborough.
“It was pretty obvious he was a deliberate, flagrant liar before he was elected as Impostor-In-Chief.”
Latest WH spin is that “only” those 5% who are on individual polices will be affected. That’s not true either. Major corporations are starting to send out change notices to their policies. And, in a year, when the corporate exemptions, unions, other friends of Obama’s exemptions expire it will get really interesting. Sadly, even if the GOP should get really lucky and win the WH and take back the senate the damage done will not be able to be undone. And, that’s what the Dem’s are counting on. Their solution to this mess will be national single payer coverage for all - except themselves of course. And so, there you have it...
That’s right!I think he’s paid about $92,000 per-week by”Pravda”(otherwise known as)”PMSNBC”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The traditional prayer of the peasant- “If only the King knew of these outrages, he would right these wrongs.”
Why did Hewitt have this faux conservative on his show? Joe will say anything for a buck.
I’ll say. We really need a Conservative news network (or twenty).
We should be grateful this ideological whore left Congress when he did, he was en route to the Senate where he could’ve done some real damage.
President Purple Lips is NOTHING BUT A LIAR!!!
Scarborough said this on the Hugh Hewitt radio show, not on MSNBC.
He DARE NOT say it on the Leftist Network.
Like Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden doing the “Y’all” minstrel act before black audiences, it’s all for show...
So how come you didn’t notice like ... oh ...six years ago?
These are the same lies.
Joe's an old Congress type so he's used to being economical with the truth i.e. tailoring his message to the audience.
To claim the WH has no spin is to claim Obama doesn't watch ESPN in the Oval Office.
Unless Joe slept through the past 48 hours, Valerie Jarrett is throwing caution to the wind and allowing her ideas to be attributed directly to her (they were always her ideas but credited to her ventriloquist dummy). Her latest, desperate gambit is to blame the insurance companies i.e. the 'private' businesses that were press-ganged into working for Uncle Sam.
This is akin to passing a 15 mph speed limit then ticketing motorists for driving too slowly.
On the bright side, we're getting closer to near-universal use of lie/liar/lied. Liberal media outlets are being dragged kicking and screaming, of course...the LA Times is going with 'promises' for now.
Obama has a classic narcissistic personality disorder. He is a congenital, serial liar. Here are the characteristics traits of Obamas propensity to lie.
When dealing with a narcissist, you face one major problem, and this is the narcissists attitude towards lying.
While the majority of people will have learned that not only that lying brings about devastation and destruction, it ultimately leads to total isolation and loneliness. This is, it hinders any sincere communication and hence the narcissist will find her/himself increasingly on the outside and excluded.
However, as much as the narcissist notices this isolation and reacts with increasing panic, it does not bring about a modification of the narcissists coping strategy.
The attitude of the narcissist towards lying is very childish and simple: If the narcissist lies and gets away with it, he interprets this as being clever and superior to others. In this sense, while common sense clearly sees lying as a social ill, the narcissist views lying as an excellent tool to obtain what he wants and as a means to demonstrate how stupid others are.
A person now, who wishes to engage in real communication and shows openness will be viewed by the narcissist as an utter fool who deserves to be exploited. Willingness to communicate and to show openness will be seen be the narcissist as weakness and stupidity.
When dealing with a narcissist, extreme care must be taken and events need to be recorded. It also is important to communicate with others who have to deal with the narcissist in order to counter-act splitting. This is, the narcissist uses lies in order to set up people against each other. In general, this is quite simple: The narcissist tells a person A that person B doesnt like person A and the same the other way round. This then prevents A from talking to B and hence both parties can be manipulated through the narcissists lies.
While a normal person will be embarrassed when found out lying, not so the narcissist. The narcissist will see this as a threat to their sense of superiority and will straight away think of ways of how to overcome this threat and this is by forming new lies.
To say it in one sentence: For the narcissist lying is fun and a tool, and anybody who doesnt lie is a fool in the eyes of the narcissist. Trying to communicate with a narcissist is therefore pointless. This is the problem congressional leaders have had in negotiating with Obama. They say he isnt honest in his dealings with them and reneges on his word as soon as a deal is imminent. He cant be trusted because of his narcissistic personality disorder.
There is plenty of A/V footage of the most-recorded president in history making his 'promises.'
It apparently has been buried in the same vault as the 9/11 coverage.
What was new with Lisa Myers revelation was last night was it had three or four people that were actually working with the president who said the president knew at the time and let them know at the time that what he was saying was not the truth.
Yeah well wanting communism and getting it are two different things.
Being so correct regarding a liberal and his ideas should make US feel somewhat better. When, exactly, does that euphoria begin?
Yes—and he has to listen to MIKA EVERDAY. That’s got to be nauseating even for someone with no principles. :)
Quiet Joe, Mika is getting a text from the White Hut... “tell Joe to shut-up... signed ValJar..”
Obama will give a speech and Joe will be back in O’s corner.
Assuming he ain’t schtuping her. He’s getting a divorce from the lady he married right about the time that dead employee (female) turned up in his office.
OK That’s funny:)
Hadn’t thought of that — but yeah, possible.
Best cartoon ever, tells the real truth about his ultimate lie.
Exactly! He doesn’t have the balls to say it on MSNBC. Guys like him have no core.
Even Steny Hoyer pulled his lips off Obama’s butt long enough to say he lied.
And worse yet, it is made to look like it is the "evil giant corporations" that are doing this to their employees. Not once does it come up that it is because of the requirements of ACA. Employees who are Obama supporters don't make the connection that they are paying more because of their president. The right has a golden opportunity, but they will squander it and sh!theads like McCain, McConnell, Boenher et. al. will not tow the party line on this issue.
