Obama’s Lies And Hypocrisy

I have done some of my normal reading and browsing of blogs and news sites and I have come to a conclusion that is not startling, but rather a reminder of just how much of a liar Barack Obama really is. Stop and think about it for a moment. Do we really understand just how willing President Obama is to say or do whatever he believes it will take to achieve his end goals? Honestly, I used to believe Bill Clinton was a liar, but compared to Obama, he should be qualified to be the new Pope. Let’s look at a few examples, the first of which comes to us from America’s Watchtower. Did you realize the sequester was going to cause the janitors of the Capitol to receive a cut in pay? I didn’t either, but that’s exactly what President Obama said on Friday.

“[A]ll the folks who are cleaning the floors at the Capitol — now that Congress has left, somebody is going to be vacuuming and cleaning those floors and throwing out the garbage — they’re going to have less pay,” Mr. Obama said. “The janitors, the security guards, they just got a pay cut, and they’ve got to figure out how to manage that. That’s real.”

How true is that claim? Not very, according to the Capitol Janitorial Superintendent. He had to send out a memo to his employees, telling them the “high-ranking official” who made that claim didn’t know what he was talking about. Once again, President Obama has been caught in a blatant lie, using make-believe rhetoric to further his own agenda, scare tactics to try to force Republicans to give in to his demand that they raise taxes and stop the sequester.

The second example is one many of us are probably familiar with, but it bears mentioning again. Remember how John Kerry was for the war in Iraq, before he was against it? Substitute Barack Obama and gay marriage.

(Hot Air) The news also isn’t that O’s revealing himself once again to have been a liar on this issue. When he ran in 2008, he pretended to be against gay marriage to parry Republican claims that he was a devout liberal rather than the centrist “post-partisan pragmatist” his campaign touted him as. He finally dropped the facade last year — it’s politically safe now to support gay marriage, even in the GOP (sort of) — but he’s continued to insist that this issue should be left to the states because … I’m not sure why. Literally no one believes he sincerely feels that way, and since he’d already taken the plunge by endorsing legal gay marriage, he had little to gain politically from his phony federalism. The best I can do by way of a theory is to guess that O, instinctively, likes to posture as a “moderate” even when he’s pushing reliably liberal positions. (E.g., “the balanced approach.”) It’s good for his brand as the “reasonable” adult in the room in Washington, a vestigial version of the pragmatic independence he feigned in summer ’08.

Obama's LiesHere we have a case of pure political game-playing. Barack Obama has always ran as a moderate, even though he is as liberal as any politician who has held public office in America. He could not afford the political capital it would cost if he came out in favor of gay marriage, even though he was in favor of allowing it. When it became politically expedient, he conveniently changed his position and behold, he was suddenly in favor of allowing homosexuals the right to marry. Another line of political rhetoric and another lie from the mouth of our President.

The most recent example of lying is about the sequester itself. He has made the claim that the blame for the sequester rested squarely on the shoulders of the GOP for weeks. It was all their fault and they refused to listen to his reason. Then along came Bob Woodward and busted that bubble pretty quickly. Obama hasn’t liked it, but Woodward has made it very plain that the President is lying about the sequester and that he knows he is lying.

These are only three of the lies Barack Obama has told since he started campaigning for President. I could also mention the lies he has told about Obamacare and how it would help our health care system. Remember now, we can all keep our current health care insurance plan. Or not! Or what about Fast and Furious? Or the lies he told about Mitt Romney during the 2012 campaign? And don’t forget his lies about raising taxes on the middle class. Should I go on? My point should already be clear.

How do we know if President Obama is lying? Just watch for his mouth to open and for him to begin to speak. That should be clue enough.

  • You know Larry, the man is in need of some serious mental help. He lies so much he really has no idea when he is actually telling the truth.

    I am starting to believe that he is nothing more than a pathological liar. The problem is like Jim Jones his Obamabots are on the same level as Obama they too do not know the truth if it bit them on the butt.

    We lost our chance to on 6 November 2012. The only option left open to us now is to catch him in a lie that is so blatant that some type of action would have to be taken. I have no hope of that taking place. Fast and Furious should have produced his impeachment as well as Benghazi should have forced his resignation, but it did not. So we are stuck with this lying stack of crap.

    Can it get any worse….you bet your life, as Groucho Marx would say!

    Great Post

    • I’m not so sure Obama is a pathological liar. Instead, I think he is someone who is more than willing to say or do whatever it takes to further his agenda. That makes him worse, in my opinion.

    I am encouraged by the fact, Mr Jackson, that the only comment your drivel has managed to garner thus far (and since it was posted this morning, apparently you don’t have a huge following) was from a card carrying member of the TeaPublicans.

    Barack Obama is the best thing to happen to this country in a very long time–at least those of us that believe that it shouldn’t be run by a handful of wealthy, white men who are terrified of change and could care less what happens to anyone outside their conference rooms and favorite restaurants.
    History will show you’re on the wrong side of the change coming–hell, that’s already come–to this country. People came out in droves and stood for hours to re-elect this President for a reason. Because he stands for US.

    • Call it drivel if you must, but the fact remains, it is the truth. Barack Obama is nothing but a community organizer who is an inept President, but an effective liar. Show me where what I have written is not the truth. Did he not lie about the sequester? Did he not lie about hie feels about gay marriage? Has he not lied and otherwise avoided telling the truth about Fast and Furious? I challenge you, show me where what I have written is not factual.

      You must be joking if you expect me to believe the man is the best thing that has happened to America in a very long time. He has refused to work with anyone, even his own party, unless he can get his own way. He has driven our debt and deficit through the roof. He has divided our country more than it has ever been divided.

      You complain about the country being ran by rich white men, but yet you refuse to see how President Obama has been guilty of consorting with the rich white men who have funded part of his campaigns. He has repaid them with government loans, which they took and declared bankruptcy, leaving people like you and me to pay those loans off with our taxes.

      Explain to me exactly how Obama has stood for anything, except for his agenda and himself.

  • Look up the term ‘malignant narcissist’, and you’ll understand Obama, and likely 3/4 of the pols in Mordor on the Potomac. Look up zealot and drone to understand those like Mr. Crippen. You will find people like him in BOTH parties. Their leader can do no wrong, and is the savior of the planet. They will defend him to the death. There seem to be more than normal following dear leader. He is their all in all, and you disagree at your peril.

  • Combine Cloward-Piven and Alinsky and you have Obama’s philosophy of governing. He is a pathetic excuse for a man and much less a president.

  • Thanks for the link Larry, this man takes lying to a new level and I honestly do not believe one word that comes out of his mouth. At this point I wonder if Right Handed Cowboy is right about and Obama is a pathological liar who can’t help himself or if he knows that he is lying and thinks we are all too stupid to realize it.

    • I believe Obama is fully aware of what he is doing. He lies for one reason, to advance his agenda. I honestly do not believe he cares one whit if we realize what he is doing or not, as long as he can advance his agenda.

  • 2014 is what we need to focus on. We are lost if he gains the house. Forget 2016 for now.

  • And just to rub salt in the wound, remember when the Obama campaign characterized Romney as a liar (simply because he won the first debate)? Romney, according to the Annointed One, was a tax-dodger, corporate grave robber, and purveyor of cancer. None of that of course was true, but a lie–reapeated enough–becomes the truth according to Karl Marx. And those lies won the election for Obama.

    Now…I can appreciate a good, old-fashioned liar; it’s an art form, after all. Buy a LYING HYPOCRITE: one who villies others, falsely, for lying, then brings the art to a new level himself? That’s another matter altogether. HAIL TO THE CHIEF!!!

    • I still remember how the Obama campaign went after Mitt Romney. The man may not be as conservative as we would have liked, but he was at least, a decent and good man. They portrayed him to be a monster who cared about nothing but his money and that is simply not the truth.

  • For Obama it’s a case of the end justifying the means.. No lie is too vile as long as it serves Obama’s purpose and deflects blame from him..
