Obama and the L-word The presidents habit of telling untruths
Heres how predictable the presidents slippery relationship with the truth has become: Hours before the State of the Union address, Washington Examiner reporter Timothy P. Carney posted a pre-emptive fact check that, among other things, prebutted any presidential claim to have stopped the revolving door between government and corporate lobbying. As it happened, that night Barack Obama made an even bolder (read: less truthful) claim: that weve excluded lobbyists from policymaking jobs.
In fact, more than 40 former lobbyists work in the administration, including such policy makers as Deputy Defense Secretary William J. Lynn (who was lobbying for Raytheon as recently as 2008), Office of the First Lady Director of Policy and Projects Jocelyn Frye (National Partnership for Women and Families), White House Director of Intergovernmental Affairs Cecilia Muñoz (National Council of La Raza), and Treasury Secretary Chief of Staff Mark Patterson (Goldman Sachs).
When Carney confronted a White House spokeswoman with the falsehood, she conceded nothing. As the President said, she wrote, we have turned away lobbyists for many, many positions. Just not all of them.
When a politician cannot fathom opposition to his policies except as the manifestation of wicked manipulation by bad guys, remediable only by more thorough explanations from the good guys, it indicates an unseemly paternalism. And if he cannot take the hint that Bush-Obama bailout-and-spend economics are deeply and increasingly unpopular, that indicates something immovable about his core economic ideology. With those two factors as backdrop, its hard to say which would be worse: if the president didnt really believe what he said, or if he did.

They elevated him to the pinnicle of power. It's been showtime since January 2009.
Remember, if his lips are moving, he's almost certainly lying.
Bummer, you fib!
While all those L words fit, I think “LUNKHEAD” belongs at the top of the list.
Which is it I wonder.

Everyone of them are on the damn chopping block. I will talk with my (R)incumbents in Tennessee and tell them they better get hold of this the next round or they are out. If Queen Nancy can pass legislation on me, a new order is in the offing.
