Lie, Lie, Lie, Lie, Lie, Lie, Lie, Lie

Barack Obama, via Breitbart, promising on eight separate occasions to televise the health care debate.

Barack Obama is a liar. That isn't a slanderous accusation, just a well-documented fact. It rather makes you wonder what else he may have lied about.

Doesn't it?

This is just another racist attack on our new Leader.

In case you didn't notice, there was an election in November 2008. We won, you lost, and you will never get another chance.

The day of the racist white male opressor has passed. President Obama rules this country now and he will lead us into the light of a new world of justice and peace.

come on ... it's not really a lie-lie ... he's simply used his superior intellect to change his mind about a campaign promise ... "For the Greater Good" of course ... funny how the "Greater Good" always requires Obama to break his campaign promises ...

5 days of Public Display prior to signing bills ...
Closing Gitmo in a year ... (thankfully broken)
We will not prosecute CIA interrogators ...
Televise health care negotiations ...
No taxes for those making less than 250K ...
No lobbyists in his admin ...
Campaigned against the individual mandate ...
Promised to only use Public Financing for his campaign ...
End Don't Ask Don't Tell ... (circling the drain)

When almost every campaign promise is broken you start to think the guy knew he wasn't going to honor them and at that point ... making the promise was a lie ...

This means that alot of people are starting to think that Obama is not just lying now but has been lying since 2007-2008 about a great many things ... some of those things caused many of those people to vote for him ...

When you realize that the man has been lying about some of his fundamental beliefs and ideas for so long it shakes you to your core that you were duped. For many people they will never accept this and will rationalize every broken promise. Not to cover for Obama so much as to maintain their own twisted irrational sanity.

Of course the guy has been lying for years. How else can a man with not one legislative or executive achievement in his ENTIRE life get elected first to the Senate and then to the Presidency in a 4 year window. He had to bum rush everyone in order to pull off his con. All cons eventually come unravelled and he needs to keep the pace up to mask the paper thin facade he has erected in front of his life, achievements and most importantly his beliefs and ideas.

He is the Milli Vanilli President ... lip synching as fast as he can hoping the music doesn't stop ...

heh Yes We Did ... (assuming you are not being completely sarcastic given your comically childish "racist white male opressor" line)

what makes you think Obama thinks WE (you and him) won ?

I'm certain he knows he won ... just not sure he's onboard with your vision of we ... kind of scary isn't it ? I mean why did you vote for Obama ? closing Gitmo ? end the war in Iraq ? End DADT ? No taxes on those making less than 250K ? Cap 'n Tarde ? ObamaCare ? Post Partisanship ? Post Racial ?

Obama never got away with lying to me, it was people like you he was lying to, those that voted for him.

Yes We Did: do youhave anything else to say? It is the same comment over and over.

When he starts lying about weapons of mass destruction and Al Qaeda connections to start preemptive wars he can't finish, I'll worry.

Posted by: beet at January 6, 2010 01:54 PM

No you won't, beet. You'll just shift the goalposts again, and then again, like you do every time he has shown that the political character he played to get himself elected is one that is entirely fictional.

The sad thing is that you don't even realize it as you rationalize it all away, as "this is how things are done." The Obama, or Reid, or Pelosi use the exact same tactics you once screamed were destroying the country, and you vacantly nod your approval.

You're utterly, entirely wedded to a shifting ideology of whatever they tell you is right, and aren't even cognizant of becoming what you claimed you hated.

Baa. Baa. Baa.

Slavery was embedded in North America hundreds of years before the USA was formed and in less than 100 years we eradicated it. Unfortunately you probably missed many opportunities by only realizing that fact now.

"President Obama rules this country now"

No President rules.

Most. Ethical. Congress. Ever.

Nah. Doesn't make me wonder about a thing. I figure every time he opened his mouth he was lying. That's what Marxists do.

Posted by: Nancy at January 6, 2010 04:20 PM

Obama never lies. He merely makes situational assertions.

The White Devils' reign is over! We will reverse thousands of years of vile oppression and take back the civilization the Greeks stole from the Africans. This planet is ours! We will exile you ice people to a cold moon of Jupiter.

Obama is no Messiah, he is a plain ordinary lying politician.
May he burn in hell.

Solid B+ Barack. The libtards don't care about your lies to get this POS bill passed.

Posted by: daleyrocks at January 6, 2010 07:25 PM

"President Obama rules this country now"

Doesn't that just say it all? How many more of these leftards and loons are just desperately seeking a cult of personality irrespective of 2+ centuries of a republic that abhors such a travesty?

CY, by your standard of "lie," every single politician you'll ever find is a liar. I don't expect and never expected O to deliver on every single campaign promise, especially one that concerns the doings of a separate branch of government. He can't control Congress, and anybody who thought that the days of closed-door negotiations would end lives in a dreamworld. Like every politician, he made some campaign promises that he can't or won't keep. I'm not too bothered by it, particularly since the overall transparency of the HCR debate was pretty good.

So, like I said, what bothers me is not when a person doesn't deliver precisely what they promised; the real world is funny about making that impossible sometimes.

And like I said, when I compare the "lie" you're accusing the President of, with the garbage peddled by the Bush administration about the links between Iraq and Al Qaeda, and the fantasies they spun about what America would face if we invaded Iraq, I wanna puke.

Ah but one other thing - the press and folks like yourself are right to push him on this stuff. My hypothesis would be that the Senators involved refused to allow their internal debates to be televised. At this late date, O doesn't want to rock that boat. We know more or less what the bill will be.

I'm sure some of your readers think the silence is all about slipping in his Marxist amendments - FEMA camps for gun owners and that sort of thing - but I'm willing to bet that they're wrong.

Posted by: beet at January 7, 2010 03:04 PM

Excuse me. Barack is a liar? OMG! Who Knew?

Only every one who knows jack about politicians. They cannot but lie. Each and every one of them.

If you see a politician on the road, kill him.

Beet just invoked the standard Liberal argment that Saddam never had WMDs. Ha. On a post about lying no less.

You're dead wrong. VX is a WMD, you monster. It's not a conventional weapon, like you claim it is.

I remember you. You're the person who threatened to commit mass murder against those who disagree with you, with the exclusion of me.

You should be ashamed and silent, yet you're an ignorant loudmouth. You don't get to point fingers about lying.

I do.

We know more or less what the bill will be.

And from what source would that be? If you say Cato, it might be believable. If you say CBO then you are ignorant of the fact that the CBO only can work with the assumptions given it by the Congress. So--garbage in, garbage out. Congress is desperate to pass this bill--so their assumptions are not exactly objective.

what a useful tool you are, beet.
