Of course presidents lie (All presidents "lie", so it's OK for Obama to lie)
CNN ^ | Nov 24, 2013 | John Blake

Posted on 11/24/2013 9:35:41 AM PST by Innovative

Obama's statement will be judged by the same standard: Did it help the country, or did he say it just to save his bacon?

Obama apologized for saying people could keep their insurance if they like it. But some Americans who buy policies on the private market recently received cancellation notices because their plans don't meet Obamacare requirements for more comprehensive care.

Americans may forgive Obama if Obamacare improves their lives, says Christopher J. Galdieri, who teaches a course on the U.S. presidency at Saint Anslem College in New Hampshire.

Why we need a president who lies...

"We want a decent, just, caring, and compassionate president, yet we admire a cunning, guileful and, on occasions that warrant it, even a ruthless, manipulative president."

This article is the biggest load of lies ever written or close to it... Anything and any lie is OK to try to justify Obama's lies.

Mr Blake must have attended a very recent Journalist Education Seminar at the White House.

It’s well past simple “lies” and deep into “fraud”. Bernie Madoff was sentenced to 150 years in prison for much less.

It's just like what they did with Clinton: "Everyone is unfaithful in marriage, so Bill's OK."

But it's just not true.

The Left keeps banging the meme drum that conservatives oppose Obamacare because "people MAY FIND OUT THEY ACTUALLY LIKE IT!!!"

The man lied. Stalinists lie. Always.

Joe Wilson called out Obama on his lies and was attacked for it. Funny thing is the thing Obama had just said was that his critics were lying about Obamacare.

So he lied about his critics lying about his plan. He heavily invested his credibility in his lie.

He cannot defend his plan. He can only attack his critics at a personal level. The man is a sh!theel.

Poor, poor bill Clinton. He thought it was only about sex that presidents can lie.

Everyone sexually harasses women in the workplace. NOW even said that the first grope is free. They must tolerate it before the NO can be stated.

The Left has no principles. They only have a socialist utopian vision and will do anything it takes to put it in place.

The authors says Carter was a bad president, not because he was an incompetent idiot, but because he always told the truth...

Do they think the American people are that gullible?!

Unfortunately the answer is yes.

Obama and those under him have lied to Congress about Fast & Furious, the Benghazi terrorist attacks, Obamacare, the IRS witchhunt of Tea Party groups...

Scooter Libby was convicted of far less. They wanted to imprison Roger Clemens over less.

This entire regime is corrupt to the core. Nancy Pelosi lied about establishing “the most ethical congress ever!”.

CNN doesn’t have any religious beliefs, only political ones.

Yes.
These kinds of stories tend to appear in the Lame Stream Media when a lying liberal is in the White House.
During Slick Willie's regime we were told how lying is actually a good thing.

I do hope Jug Ears takes the Fourth Estate with him when he goes down for the count.

Obama addressed the United Nations and announced “mission accomplished” with his “third way” to peace in the Middle East. About a year after he gave that speech patting himself on the back for killing Gaddafi, we (our Embassy is US) were attacked in Libya.

Meanwhile the race is on to destroy Saddam’s/Syria’s WMDs.

So Bush "lied"?

What about the parade of Clinton officials who said every single thing that Bush said about Iraq?

Exactly...that’s why Jimmah Cawtuh and Bush Jr. and Sr. fooled around with prostitutes in the Oval....oh, they didn’t? Just Clinton? Well that’s awkward isn’t it.

Maybe the only ones who LIE are those who are pathological liars, like Obama!

:: “We want a decent, just, caring, and compassionate president ::

When it comes to the American electorate.

:: yet we admire a cunning, guileful and, on occasions that warrant it, even a ruthless, manipulative president. ::

When deadling internationally.

Why is that so hard to understand?
