Posted on 04/24/2014 2:32:46 PM PDT by IBD editorial writer
Public Trust: Sixty-one percent polled say President Obama lies "some of the time" or "most of the time" on matters of national importance. Americans have to ask: Why do we let him get away with it?
It's no surprise that a Fox News poll of 1,012 registered voters last week found immense distrust of a president whose main domestic initiative was based on a lie. The shock is that the same poll found his disapproval level down to its lowest since last fall.
Asked, "How often do you think Barack Obama lies to the country on important matters?" 37% replied "most of the time" while 24% answered "some of the time." Twenty percent said, "Only now and then." [snip]
But this latest Fox poll found that Obama's approval fell to 51% from the 53%-55% range of Fox's seven previous polls. You have to go back to early October 2013, when it was 49%, to find approval of Obama lower.

Simple. It’s the mark (character) of the beast. Most accept it because they are of the same mind.
Those who know he’s a liar fall in two categories, those who don’t tolerate that he’s a liar, and those who like his lies because it furthers their evil agenda. The other third of America don’t know he’s a liar because they’re too busy with selfies and video games.
A: Because he’s not worth impeaching.
For which Harry Reid’s Senate wouldn’t convict.
And, we don’t want to hand the Left a martyr.
GREAT QUESTION! Thanks!
Here are my two cents attempt to answer/comment on it:
B. Hussein Obama has faithfully carried out his pledge to Fundamentally transform the United States of America, while our sorry Doormat Republicans in the US Congress are STILL amazed, surprised, shocked or in Boehners case, sad that B. Hussein is doing exactly what he promised to do AFTER >5 VERY LONG YEARS of Obamanation!
Boehner, Cantor, McCarthy, Ryan, Issa, Mike Rogers, King of NY are just a few of the US House members who have refused to hold the Democrat Obama Administration accountable for their destructive actions.
There has never been a more corrupt administration more deserving of US House Special Prosecutor Investigations than the Democrat Obama administration.
Thus, Speaker Boehner has been derelict in his duties to his office as Speaker of the US House of Representatives, PERIOD.
US House Speaker Boehner and right hand men Cantor and McCarthy need to be voted out of their Obama-friendly leadership positions ASAP by the US House Members.
2014 is our opportunity to rid Congress of as many Doormat Republicans as possible so that we Conservatives can take back our Nation instead of waiting for the Doormat to Democrats Republicans to behave as if they really wanted to work FOR our Republic.
It speaks to the quality of character of a large number of citizens in said nation.
Most people believe all politicians lie. And they’re mostly right.
Let’s see now, don’t nearly all politicians lie? That’s how they get elected. Most people don’t want to know the truth. Look at Harry Reid, he lies over and over again and still gets elected. If a candidate for any office told the truth he could never get elected.
Obummer campaigned on many different slogans,-were any of them true? Yet he still won the second term.
Because the TV tells them to.
Because we are a nation of uninformed morons.
Follow the free money! It buys loyal ignorant.

It does. He does not really reflect the culture. He is too alien and alienated. A weirdo. But his embrace of sanctimonious deceit is very much in accord with the dominant culture.
The media and liberal Hollyweird does.
Why, THAT would be racist.
The other third of America dont know hes a liar
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
We mustn’t forget the ‘FOURTH’ Third - those that are living off the freebies - the only thing that would get their attention is if the FREE cell phones were to be turned off, or the EBT card rejected when buying booze and steaks, or when the unemployment checks get cut off ‘they’ can’t go on SS Handicap.....
Which makes it all the harder as ‘they’ would be convinced it wasn’t the liars fault all the ‘bad things happened in their life’, it was ‘ours’.....Well, I guess they would be correct in that assumption.
People are used to it.
Also, they only have to believe one candidate is better than the other once every four years.
Why does a nation tolerate a liar as President? Easy, the people whose ancestors founded and ran the country for centuries have abdicated their right to govern. Why did they abdicate their right to govern? Well, they came to believe that eating, drinking, drugging, copulating, evacuating the bowels, snoring and attending the games was better than attending to the details of tiresome old governance.
“Why Does Nation Tolerate A Habitual Liar As President?”
Because there’s no respect. He doesn’t respect the populace and they sure don’t respect him. Which doesn’t keep them from standing (or kneeling) at the trough.
Way off. Fox News most recent poll has him at 42% approval. He was at 38% in early March and in October 2013 he fluctuated between 40-45%. IBD should do a correction.
I will not dispute that. It is blunt truth.
The nation has been tolerating liars as President for a lot longer than just since 2009, or even 1993. For one of the most prolific of liars, we need only go to Uncle Cornpone, Elbee Jay. Even before Nixon, he was honing the art of lying to its highest degree of execution, and a lot of it had to do with how he succeeded to the Presidency in the first place. Even today nobody is sure of the series of events that led up to the assassination of JFK, but I have never believed it was coincidence that it happened in Texas and the person generally assumed to have been the sniper was a failed turncoat Marine.
But this is about the Current Occupant, and how badly his lies are turning out for him. He is probably, like Richard Nixon, very close to a mental break as the end approaches, and has proven himself totally inadequate to the task of being an administrator of ANYTHING, let alone the governance of this territory formerly known as “the United States of America”.
Using a couple of borderline lib friends as an example, the TV has them convinced that no matter how much Obama lies, it would be FAR worse under Romney, or McCain.
And they would have to listen to Sarah Palin’s constant screeching.
And then, they add, “why do you hate poor people getting healthcare?”
Obama is good looking and charming, and to many voters, those things are more important than honesty and integrity. During the Kennedy/Nixon debates of 1960, people who saw them on TV preferred Kennedy, while people who heard them on the radio preferred Nixon. Obama is like a good looking rock star who lip synchs at all his concerts because he can’t actually sing.
Why tolerate a liar?
Because he’s lying to get them free stuff.
Because he bribes them with money stolen from us.
Because of his skin color!
Tell me what we can do about it and I’m in.
The Founding States made the federal Constitution to deliberately limit (cripple) the federal government's powers so that the federal government wouldn't become a tyrant.
But what good are our constitutional protections against tyrants when parents don't make sure that their children are taught the federal government's constitutionally limited powers?
So what?...a majority of adults still approve of his job as president. Which means this country is screwed.
That is a huge and knowing lack of character among those most required to possess it.
It’s politics. Politicians lie and people expect it.
Because they have been taught to expect nothing more.
Government schools are child abuse.
Because they lie too. They expect to be lied to. It is what politicians do.
Many are scared to speak out.
“Cause he be BLACK!
(And for no other reason)
That is a good question?
Uhhh.. what was the question again?
I agree with you to an extent. But parents must ultimately take responsibility for what their children are being taught imo.
Do you mean Bill Clinton?
You've got that right! My beloved adult daughter -- who has clearly drank the kool-aid -- doesn't just refuse to acknowledge that obama is a pathological liar who lies about things he doesn't even need to lie about (let alone acknowledge he's not very good at lying), she recently told me in all seriousness she believes obama is among the most honest -- if not the most honest president in American history. People like this see reality far differently than I do ... and they vote! Yikes!
Because everyone fears the FSA
President Bush was flayed mercilessly and continuously for his so-called “lies” about WMD’s in Iraq and “Saddam buying Yellowcake in Africa” when he was only reciting the latest intelligence of the time.
Meanwhile, the commieRATbastard in the White Hut has stacked boldfaced lie upon lie...and the MSM quietly yawns.
The ends (communism) justify the means (Lying)
I would guess that we let him get away with it because politicians lie, whether it is McAuliffe, Gov. of Virginia, or Bill Clinton, or Hillary Clinton. Or is lying to get elected different from lying while in office?
When was the last time a Democrat resigned from office in disgrace because he or she was caught in a bold-faced lie?
And they love the freebees. And they do not know any better after years of brainwashing.
Easy. He’s black and has all of msm running interference, and his opposition leadership is gutless.
