The lesson here? If you like your personal approval ratings, you can keep your personal approval ratings. In the latest poll from Fox News, 61% believe that Barack Obama lies some or most of the time on important matters, while only 15% say Obama never lies:
About six in ten American voters think Barack Obama lies to the country on important matters some or most of the time, according to a Fox News poll released Wednesday.
Thirty-seven percent think Obama lies most of the time, while another 24 percent say he lies some of the time. Twenty percent of voters say only now and then and 15 percent never.
Only among his strongest constituencies does Obamas reputation for honesty remain strong or at least relatively so:
The number of voters saying Obama lies most of the time includes 13 percent of Democrats. It also includes 12 percent of blacks, 16 percent of liberals, 31 percent of unmarried women and 34 percent of those under age 30 all key Obama constituencies.
Yet some of those groups are also among those most likely to say Obama never lies to the country on important matters: blacks (37 percent), Democrats (31 percent), liberals (28 percent) and women (19 percent).

Lips moving and all.
No option that he lies ALL THE TIME? He NEVER tells the truth. Not for a single minute. He lies even when it doesn’t matter. It’s what he does.
Who are these morons and why are they allowed to vote?
Yet... 45% of this country just love him to the end. Like any abused spouse, they accept being lied to...
hm.. 15% think he never lies... interesting... coincidence that about 15% of the population is black.
But I am sure that’s just a coincidence!
I’d like to see the statistic that addresses — of those who say he lies most of the time, how many support him anyway?
I think the numbers are higher than that but the dems won't admit how big of a lair he is. As long as he is their liar they are good with it.
Therein lies the true racism.
Everyone lies from time to time. It is almost impossible to be truthful all of the time. Still, society functions on the assumption that most of the time, you will get the objective truth. That is what trust is based on. We trust the government to do the right thing and to tell us the truth. But you cannot trust someone that lies most of the time. I they lie more than half of the time, you cannot trust them, ever. It just amazes me that so many people simply accept the lie as truth, and act accordingly.
And it isn’t just a President lying. The Bureau of Labor Statistics lies about unemployment and inflation. The Environmental Protection Agency lies about carbon dioxide being a pollutant. There is so much untruth out there you just have to wonder how long a society can make itself last. We are all pretty much living in a fiction. The only way it works is because we all believe it, or we go along while we can because there is no reasonable alternative.
NATURAL BORN LIAR
I’m surprised that only 15% of the survey takers said Obama “never lies”. There’s an element of the population that considers a whole lot of things we’d call lying just gettin’ by or playin’ with ya’ or sayin’ what you want to hear.
That other 39% come up over and over in polls, they never turn on Obama.
Romney’s 47% gaff should have been a comment about that 39% instead.
15% says, never lie?
Isn’t that... about... the general US population of blacks?
I hope that’s not true.
” No option that he lies ALL THE TIME? He NEVER tells the truth. Not for a single minute. He lies even when it doesnt matter. Its what he does. “
Rather, I think, he is incapable of recognizing the truth, and therefore cannot speak it ...
On account of dysfunctional thought processes (to the max), never mind his limited and inadequate observational abilities (sees everythng thru red, Marxist lenses).
It's as if half the country is experiencing Stockholm Syndrome!
I actually think his handlers make him use the teleprompter to keep him from his favorite past time.
You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father's desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and has nothing to do with the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies.
