Obama's legacy: Liar in Chief
am thinker ^ | 4/21/14 | r moran

Posted on 04/21/2014 6:34:08 AM PDT by bestintxas

Excellent editorial in today's Washington Examiner about presidential lying. Specifically, why so many Americans - 61% according to a Fox News poll - think that the president lies "most of the time" and "some of the time."

It comes as no surprise today that Obama's defenders are sparing no invective for Fox News in the wake of that survey. But it was the president, not Fox News, who repeatedly and knowingly misled the American people with two infamous Obamacare lies: “You can keep your health insurance if you like it. Period. You can keep your doctor. Period.” For better or worse, Obama will forever be known as the president who chose repeatedly to propagate two falsehoods. Those two lies were profoundly significant because they were designed to hide the truth about how Obamacare would affect the daily lives and health of hundreds of millions of Americans.

Since it became painfully clear in 2013 that Obama had lied about Obamacare since 2009, it has been increasingly difficult for many Americans to continue accepting at face value his statements on other major public issues. In both the Benghazi and IRS scandals, for example, Obama claimed to have known nothing about them until they were reported in the national media.

But if that were true, why has the president's attorney general and so many other of his most prominent appointees withheld thousands of documents subpoenaed by Congress and requested by journalists under the Freedom of Information Act? Are there passages in those withheld documents that make it clear Obama knew much more than he has admitted?

The word period will always be associated with Obama.

Sham presidency, sham marriage...

I would like to know when Obama is going to tell the truth about his sexuality.

He likes it when everyone else does.

We’ll find out all about after he descends the throne and his beard files for divorce. After reaching the climax of their infiltration operation to dismantle the U.S. the cover of their sham marriage is no longer needed. She’ll probably file for divorce within weeks and write a tell all book about it after she’s moved to another country.

Mark Levin has said many times that this is the biggest financial fraud perpetuated on the American people in history. Bigger than Madoff, bigger than the housing bubble.

This clown Obama, and his army of Butt Kissers, would make Nixon look Like an Alter Boy.

Holding him to the same standard of accountability as other presidents is racist, you know...

I dont understand how even a minority of poll respondents can honestly say Obama doesnt even SOMETIMES lie. That is nuclear powered koolaid right there.

The Democrat trifecta:

“Mr. Malaise”

“I did not have sex with that fat girl.”

“What me, socialist?”

Misses the point. The lies served to advance a law that became extremely unpopular when it's true ramifications became known. Had he not lied, and lied multiple times about its impact, it would never have passed. That is much worse than simply "hiding the truth," as the article states.

The parents of any small child will tell you there are different kinds of lies, and lying to get one's way is up there on the "pretty bad" list.

Yeah, last time she filed for divorce she got talked out of it.

I can't help but think she got some "free" vacays in the deal for returning.
