Obama’s Biggest Lies

Pages: 1 2

On the economic front, the president’s “inaccurate predictions” are rather legendary. While one may grant that a nearly one trillion dollar stimulus package projected to bring unemployment below 8 percent can be subject to economic whims beyond anyone’s control, there is no question that, in 2009, the president said it would provide the nation with “shovel-ready projects all across the country.” One year later? In a NY Times interview, the president admitted “there’s no such thing as shovel-ready projects.”

And remember the overall media contention, bolstered by the White House, that it was John Boehner who reneged on a deal with respect to last years’ debt ceiling talks? A 4,600-word inside-the-room narrative by the left-leaning Washington Post, summed up by the even further left-leaning Politico, reveals that it was the president who walked away from the table, not Mr. Boehner. “The story makes it clear that the facts are as we’ve always described them,” said Michael Steel, Boehner’s spokesman. The White House declined to comment on the record. As for the president’s promise to “cut the deficit we inherited in half by the end of my first term in office” to approximately $650 billion, try a deficit of $1.15 trillion in 2012, coupled with yet another promise to cut it to $901 billion in 2013. Furthermore, the man who in 2009 claimed he was “taking responsibility right now, in this administration, for getting our spending under control” has accumulated more debt ($4.9 trillion) than any president in the nation’s history.

Speaking of history, the president’s characterizations of people associated with those portions of his past that haven’t been deliberately concealed strains credibility at best and amounts to outright lying at worst. The president’s contention that Weather Underground terrorist Bill Ayers, whose group bombed the Pentagon, the Capitol, and other buildings was “a guy who lives in my neighborhood,” and is “not somebody who [sic] I exchange ideas from [sic] on a regular basis,” has been debunked. Mr. Obama led the Chicago Annenberg Challenge (CAC), an organization founded by Ayers that provided more than $100 million to radical education activists and community organizers. Ayers served on CAC’s governance committee with Mr. Obama, and worked with him to craft the organization’s by-laws.

It is also known that in 1995, Ayers hosted a gathering at his house to help promote Mr. Obama’s initial political campaign for the Illinois Senate. Also at that meeting was Ayers’ wife, Bernardine Dohrn, who was a member of the Weather Underground as well. How does Obama rationalize a relationship with a known domestic terrorist? “[T]he notion that somehow as a consequence of me knowing somebody who engaged in detestable acts 40 years ago, when I was eight years old, somehow reflects on me and my values doesn’t make much sense, George,” answered Mr. Obama during a 2008 primary debate, after George Stephanopoulos inquired into the association. Apparently what does makes sense is the deliberate attempt to minimize the relationship, knowing full well the media’s ongoing incuriousness regarding the president’s past will keep the issue at bay.

The situation is much the same with respect to Mr. Obama’s relationship with Reverend Jeremiah Wright. Americans are supposed to believe that the radically racist views of the man whose church Mr. Obama attended for 20 years, who baptized his children and officiated over his marriage, were largely unknown to the president. We are supposed to believe this even though the president appropriated Wright’s “Audacity to Hope” sermon for his political coming-out speech at the Democratic National Convention in Boston in 2004, and for the nearly identical title for his second autobiography, The Audacity of Hope. The media were apparently satisfied with the president’s assertion that Wright’s statements were essentially anecdotal, that this is “what happens when you just cherry-pick statements from a guy who had a 40-year career as a pastor.”

Considering the president’s track record, one would be hard-pressed to believe anything he says without verifying the information from other sources. As the above indicates, Barack Obama is more than willing to lie when it suits his purposes, and, more often than not, the mainstream media is more than willing to accommodate him. How many of those lies the electorate is willing to believe may be the make or break element of the 2012 presidential election.

Ironically, one lie may come back to haunt him. In 2008, Obama claimed, among other things, that the Bush administration was to blame for high gas prices. Now, the president is claiming “there are no short-term silver bullets when it comes to gas prices,” that there are “are no quick fixes to this problem” and that “some politicians [read: Republicans] always see [high energy prices] as a political opportunity.” Thus, Barack Obama’s re-election chances may be imperiled from an age-old axiom: What goes around, comes around.

    Unfortunately many Americans are still bamboozled by Obama's charm and refuse to see him as the dangerous fraud that he is…particularly with the libtard lamestream media shilling for him.
    Consequently, Obama still stands a chance in the upcoming election despite the fact that his presidency has abysmally failed to revive America's ailing economy, and instead worsened the debt/deficit.

    • Ezra

      While what you say about this President is true, it also has been true for most of the Presidents in my lifetime, Eisenhower to our present President. Washington has a culture that is destructive to America. It not about Repub or Dem, its about two groups pitting Americans against each other so they can stay in office.

      This Federal Government is no longer a Government of the people, by the people, or for the people. The mass, which I am one of, are caught between two forces. The result will be the death of a nation.

      • robertfla

        Ezra, I agree with you, but in the case of obama, he is in a class of liars all by himself. He even lies when he does not have to, and he is not very good at it.

        • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

          He's dictator stalling on one front while he seizes and consolidates power on another.

      How do you know when Obozo is lying? When he moves his lips.

    The price of oil is not controlled by the USA, since the USA has squandered its own oil reserves. Iran laughs at the cost to the USA by the USA asking for trade blockades against Iran.

    The Saudi's know a milk-cow, and realize that the Oil supplies are finite. Instead of running out in the next 50 years, they want to have it for the next 500.

    The USA needs to do the following: a) Stop Urban Scrawl, start to populate your cities and improve public transportation. This action would substantially improve the consumption of oil and the polution. It is probably too late to deal with global warming as exemplified by the draught in Mexico, and what is going to be the extraordinary heat waves to attack Texas, Arizona, and the southern mid-west.

    • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

      We haven't squandered our oil. Our Government has tied our hands in the ability to supply ourselves.

      And I don't blame Iran and Saudi Arabia for laughing at us. Liberals ought to target them for de-industrialization and see how far they get.

  • Schlomotion

    This very embroidered article reduces to two premises:

    1) Obama is not a darling of the US oil cartel.
    2) Obama is a domestic terrorist.

    The article, caked with red herring facts and figures, appears to issue from a Neocon superpatriot in Canada. The irony is ridiculous. A Jewish Nationalist from Canada is banging the US oil cartel war drum and trying to tell Americans that their own President is a terrorist, and didn't do enough for Big Oil even though he let BP contaminate the whole Gulf of Mexico and then murdered Khadafi using Al Qaeda mercenaries so that BP could resume operations in the Gulf of Sidra. That is serial carpetbagging.

    • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

      Both of those premises are correct.

      • Schlomotion

        It is correct that Obama is not as far in the pocket of the US oil cartel as politicians from Texas. He is however squeezing fuel supply and escalating prices. Big Oil loves that. He is also knocking over foreign countries, passing windfalls to oil transnationals. People seem to be angry because he has forked over another ten billion in special favors to bankers and not to oil magnates. In any event, he does not represent the people.

        He is not a domestic terrorist. That is nonsense. He is a capitalized profit, socialized debt elitist.

        • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

          Big oil loves dealing with friendly countries. Not building the oil pipeline shows you're not exactly on spot with this one.

          And that oil friendly texan Bush 41 allowed the drillers to have a glut and the oil price collapsed in the early 90's a lot of oil people went under. That shows you're not exactly spot on with that one.

          Anything else you want to explain to us?

        • johnnywoods

          Schlomo. why don`t you crawl back under the rock that you have been living under? Your assumptions are not even worth consideration.

    • alan g

      Since we are talking conspiracy, how about this? Obama’s union rigged up the BP platform to explode causing the oil spill, giving him an excuse to close down the gulf for drilling.

  • Steve Chavez

    If only cars could run on BIO-BULLSH*T since that is what Obama has plenty of!

    A bull-riding spectacle just ended here and those bulls surely left a pile. Wouldn't it be funny if it was trucked to DC and dumped in front of the White House? Maybe cowchips too? OOPS, never mind. I might give Obama another "GREEN" idea.

    A French Priest by the name of Patrick Desbois, author of" Holocaust By Bullets", President of Yahad-In Unum, has dedicated his life to confronting anti-semitism. Asked the persistant question – How could they let this happen? Why didn't people speak up and cry out against this? We might now begin to understand how this is can happen. When mainstream news media makes Islam sound palatable, turns a deaf ear to our tax paying citizens in favor of the concepts of Globalism/Islamism, socialism, illegal immigration and demonizes Israel by ominously implying that it is internationally viewed as an "apartheid" state and( also implying that the US is too for supporting Israel.) We begin to see the swing of the pendulum and the momentum of hatred that is behind it. When our President openly sides with Islamic countries, (As Hitler did with The Grand Mufti of Jerusalem Haj Amin al-Husseini) we can see just "how this can happen."

  • Abisja

    What can one say, my American friends; no gloating here! Re-elect this clown in November, and you shall deserve what you get – May GOD have mercy on your great nation. It is late in the day and I see no leaders of quality(integrity) on the horizon. Therefor, muster the ballot, and rid your country of this socialist – the flip side of the coin is to horrendous to even imagine. Come now America, you know you can do it – not just for your own sake, but for the world. Many, across the globe are watching and praying.

  • Ghostwriter

    I saw Bill Press on C-SPAN last night. He was hawking his book about how President Obama is misunderstood by everyone and the press is out for his blood. You know,things like that. I doubt he'd like this article. He'd just say it was part of the Obama Hate Machine,which was part of the title of his new book.

  • umustbkidding

    Obama consistently governs against the will of the people. I guess his big challenge is to see how many times he can get away with it, with extra bonus points for particularly devastating blows he wields on this country.

  • johnnywoods

    Don`t blame me, I voted for Palin:)

  • BLJ

    Obama is a lie. Hence he is a liar. The amazing (and more sad and tragic) thing is that there are still way too many imbeciles who by into his b.s.

  • PDK

    Barac Obama is the anti American, pro socialist, pro Islamic Messiahic President. He was concived in his mothers mind before he was concieved in her womb. He was 2 generations in the making starting with his maternal grandparents who were communist sypathizing socialists back in the red scare days of 1918-1960.
    Throwing into his mix his obvious racism and he becomes the most destructive President we have ever had.
    Scariest of all, his popularity remains in the 40s%. 95% of blacks, 65% of hispanics and 100% of white liberals like him. This augurs poorly for America.
    One and done. Nobama 2012, vote republican. Thank you.

    Lost in the laughter !
    Obama born in another country ?………..Do you know if you fell for it?
    Computer forensics do not lie ! But the real problem; people in general believe a computer can make mistakes !? Really !?
    Obama’s birth certificate has been proven fraud over and over and double checked and checked again by many other computer pros out there; along with some very good hackers ! So, what happened ? > We have proof that Obama is in fact born somewhere else and yet the jokes keep on playing out and courts laugh and make snickering remarks and all just go along as they do not want to feel threatened or feel like idiots! But the computer forensic facts
    do remain and the catch 22 snickering games keep being played out and remain somehow over the facts !? One thing this does prove, the snickering and shuckling over ride the facts and most do go along with it while facts are drowned in the snickering popularity. That is a very dangerous precedence as this president is getting a free ride as a citizen and destroying our country !
    ..Think about it ! I overheard a court session about this and right away when it was announced to come up in the courtroom I heard a snicker and others joined in ! No matter what happened after that was more of the same then it
    was over, and the facts were laughed at !? Obama himself did that act with Donald Trump at one of his meetings.. He jeered and joked about the Whitehouse being a gambling house.. Then told everyone that his birth certificate was just released from the Whitehouse, (Which is a false document !) then more laughter while the facts are gone ! It’s an old trick ! People do not want to stick out as an idiot or wrong about a very serious matter so they just go along with the jeering crowd and the facts are nothing…… Just this week on Fox news O’rielly did this . It’s still something to joke about and O’rielly did ! Putting the facts away with the laughter.. Very dangerous thing to do ! Be aware of the snickering.. ! People just do not know what the wool is !
