Obama Our Lying President

Bob Clark
Is Obama a Pathological Liar?

Forgive me but when the openly lesbian Rachel Maddow (a leftwing crackpot) went completely bonkers on her MS/NBC show calling every Republican or bi-partisan conservative a liar, I just couldn’t resist responding!

Rachel, here are the many lies your hero President has regurgitated up on his teleprompter (thank your lucky stars you don’t have to clean up after him):


Obama promised to publish all “non-emergency” legislation to White House website 5 days before he signed the bills.
Lie: He has never done that.

Obama promised to keep lobbyists out of his administration.
Lie: He has more lobbyists in high level posts in his administration than any President since Lyndon B. Johnson.

Obama promised to end all taxation for seniors making 50,000 dollars per year or less.
Lie: He added on taxes for seniors in the Stimulus bill and the first budget also he has reneged on this promise plus he has raised fees on senior’s healthcare in his big boondoggle healthcare bill.

Obama said he would give a $3,000 refundable tax credit to small business for each additional new full time employee hired.
Lie: Has never even proposed a bill in Congress to accomplish this.

Obama promised to allow withdrawals of 15% up to $10,000 from retirement accounts without penalty (although subject to the normal taxes).
Lie: He asked that the measure be eliminated from the Stimulus bill.

Obama promised that he would never sign an appropriations bill that had “ear marks” in it.
Lie: He has signed trillions of dollars in earmarks with no end in sight. I give you the stimulus bill.

Obama promised a new climate in his administration and a move past bitter, partisan rhetoric.
Lie: One of his first acts as President was a brazen and false series of vicious attacks on Rush Limbaugh followed by an attack on the Congressional Republican Leadership. He refused to meet with them for more than 6 months during the beginning of his presidency.

Obama promised the elimination of capitol gains taxes for small businesses.
Lie: He is raising it to 20% and is increasing taxes for all small business making 200,000 dollars or more (which is the case for 75% of all small businesses).

Obama promised a $4,000 tax credit for college expenses.
Lie: He asked that the provision be removed from the “Student Loan bill”.

Obama promised new transparency On the White House website, the Obama administration claimed it would be "the most open and transparent in history.
Lie: Obama has been the most secretive administration since the Nixon White House. He has also held the fewest press conferences of any President in the 20th century. At one point going 6 months between press conferences.

Obama, appearing in front of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, said Jerusalem should be Israel's undivided capital, saying, "Jerusalem will remain the capital of Israel, and it must remain undivided."
Lie: After Palestinian leaders reacted with anger and rage to this statement, Obama immediately flip-flopped on his support for Israel's stance on Jerusalem and when hearing that Israel had approved 5 year old permits to build apartment buildings “IN ISRAEL” near Jerusalem; he reacted with anger and had a disastrous first meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in the White House.

Obama in a major TV address said Healthcare Reform would reduce the deficit by $143 billion over the first ten years; and would reduce the deficit by $1.2 trillion dollars in the second ten years.
Lie: CBO is now saying the “reform” could cost at least 1.5 Trillion Dollars with most of that going to the nation’s deficit.

Obama promised “no cuts” in Medicare after he was elected.
Lie: Healthcare reform cuts Medicare Advantage by $500 Billion dollars.

Obama promised the .75 Trillion dollar stimulus bill would create 8 million new jobs!
Lie: Studies show less than 65,000 new or saved jobs as a result of the largest, failed pork barrel spending program in US history.

Obama promised that the stimulus bill would have “thousands” of shovel ready projects that will help “huge” numbers of small businesses across “our great” nation!
Lie: Of the very few “shovel ready projects” in the bill, they are mandated to only go to union certified contractors, leaving out some 95% of small businesses across the USA.

Obama promised that his bailout package would be deficit neutral and not cost the taxpayers a “cent”.
Lie: Bailout millions to Bear Stearns, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and American International Group will likely never be repaid according to the Wall Street Journal. Part of the Washington Mutual deal with JP Morgan Chase was the provision that the US government would assume all of the “bad” mortgages involved. Total potential cost of all the bailout deals to the taxpayer: 1 TRILLION DOLLARS! In addition the FDIC is now on the hook for about 750 Billion Dollars in bad loans from failed banks it has shut down and at the last minute not covered in the bailout bill.

Obama said he would not rest until BP oil spill stops!
Lie: After saying this he went on a two week vacation.

Obama on foreclosures said this, “We have launched a housing plan that will help responsible families facing the threat of foreclosure lower their monthly payments and refinance their mortgages.”
Lie: This program has been a tragic failure with hundreds of billions of dollars wasted as some 73% of all refinanced mortgages later went back in default and foreclosure.

Editor’s note: I have been alive through 13 Presidents and my family owned an early television set beginning in 1949. They say that the Vietnam War was the first TV war! Wrong, it was the Korean War. All I can say is that this is without a doubt one of the very few Presidents that I have seen that can read lies off his teleprompter/script and look the camera straight into the eye and smile. Obama now has a reputation of saying anything to just about anyone to gain their support. I regard him as a true pathological liar and I think the majority of the American people are not fooled by him. I also point out that I don’t have room on this blog to list all of the Obama lies, only the major ones; for more details go to this website for an education

This is the best analysis of the lies this President lives on. I shudder every time I see him making another announcement and hear all the lies. He was on the View and he lied over and over.

Could not agree more. I could easily add more to this list. Everytime he opens his mouth, he lies. I believe he is incapable of telling the truth. Truely disgusting this man is the POTUS.
