The Obama administration may be the first since World War Two to attempt a new and innovative policy best described as "trust me to lie to you. If you were sophisticated you would make the default assumption that the Iran policy was for public consumption, since only rubes and simpletons could have possibly believed that the Obama administration was telling the truth.
The president who claimed extraordinary powers to change Washington is now, we are to believe, unable to keep tabs on a "vast" federal government. He can't be both a mastermind and out to lunch. Connect dots to Obama. Of course the White House knew. And we already have the first piece of evidence. When It Rains, It Pours. Even when he's been publicly corrected, Obama repeats mistruths. Only he hadn't. Barack Obama, the Great Bystander. Obama didn't know the IRS was targeting conservatives until he read it in the papers.
He didn't know about "Fast and Furious" until he read it in the papers, too. He has "complete confidence" in Holder, and didn't know about the decision to collect the phone records of reporters. He told Letterman during the election he didn't know what the national debt was. He said he didn't know how bad the economic crisis was when he took office. Barack H. Obama says Fort Hood doesn't count as a "large-scale attack.
All those attacks had the potential to leave far more American bodies in their wake than they actually did. More about the Islamic terrorist attack at Fort Hood. Conservative radio host Mark Levin is very skeptical of the idea that President Obama had absolutely no idea about the IRS tea party targeting before the story broke in the news mere weeks ago.
Levin declared adamantly that it is a "flat-out, bald-faced lie" that Obama didn't know beforehand, citing prior reports by a few conservative news outlets picking up on the news well before the presidential election. Since I Became President. President Barack Obama said today that there have been no "large scale" terrorist attacks on the United States since he became president. Priebus: Obama lying or incompetent on scandals. Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus said President Obama's denial that he was involved directly with the IRS's targeting of conservative groups and other ongoing Washington scandals shows he is either lying or incompetent.
If the president actually knew something, well then clearly he's not being truthful, and no one around him is," Mr. More about the use of the IRS as a weapon. Merkley said that he had no idea about the program and he suspects that a small number of members of the congressional intelligence committees were the only individuals informed of the program. Obama calls Democrats 'common-sense folks'. Is that right, Mr. Is it common sense to suspend a five-year-old from school for pretending a pencil is a gun? Is it common sense to give 1.
Is it common sense to take half of the U. Is it common sense to let Mexican drug pushers walk off with thousands of guns? Is it common sense to strip-search little old ladies at the airport? Is it common sense to spend billions of dollars on solar panels and windmills that nobody in the free market wants? Do people with common sense attend TUCC more than once? Do people with common sense vote for a black candidate just because he's black? Do people with common sense want illegal aliens to get food stamps? Do people with common sense think Guam is going to capsize if too many people go there?
Do people with common sense welcome Sharia law to the United States? Do people with common sense kill unborn children? Obama openly lies about his record: Obama tells donors: Democrats favor 'light touch' on regulation. Making a pitch for Democratic candidates in , President Obama told big donors in California Thursday night that Democrats favor free-market solutions and less government regulation.
Obama said at a fundraiser at a private home in Palo Alto, Calif. Obama's idea of a "free market" is nationalizing General Motors, squandering tax dollars on Solyndra, subsidizing electric cars that nobody but the government wants, and making offshore oil drilling all but impossible. Obama's idea of "a light touch when it comes to regulations" is exemplified by the IRS attacking Tea Party people and small businesses, the EPA killing the coal industry, and Obamacare killing full-time jobs.
Obama is a smooth-talking tyrant. As Breitbart News has previously reported, when illegal immigrants apply for "registered provisional immigrant" status under the provisions of the bill, the first step in legalization, they do not need to demonstrate that they can speak English. When they apply for renewal of their RPI status, they still do not need to prove they can speak English. Only when illegal immigrants apply for their "legal permanent resident" status, or green card, would they be required to demonstrate their ability to speak English or prove that they are currently enrolled in a course "to achieve an understanding of English and knowledge and understanding" of civics.
Are We Being ImPrism'ed? It may get that far, but we're not there yet. What is happening is not a revolution but rather the realization that we cannot believe anything that this administration says.
Ted Cruz's health care deception: Asked how he'd protect the uninsured, he dodges and lies
If you are just now discovering that you can't believe anything this administration says, you are about four years behind the curve. Obama Is Just Obama. Bin Laden is dead and Barack Obama claims al-Qaida is "decimated. We owe illegal immigrants nothing. Citizenship is not a debt that any country owes to foeigners. Obama's Bodyguard of Lies. Is anyone in Obama's closest orbit a truth-teller?
Lies President Obama told me. And yet, you re-elected him. Terms like incompetent and liar now are among the most frequently used words to describe Obama. The president, who is in charge of the IRS, oversaw an agency that actively denied his political opponents their Constitutional rights. Obama's climate-change blather only adds to global warming. Virtually everything the guy touches this year turns to Shinola.
He went to Ohio State, urged Americans to dismiss all this silly talk about evil government out to control lives. Days later, oops, here comes the infamous ongoing series of revelations about the Internal Revenue Service harassing Obama opponents, as other government agents coincidentally knock on doors.
But the nation's chief executive didn't know about it. Then, the FBI goes after phone records of journalists, long a helpful part of Obama's base. The attorney general lies to a federal judge about one reporter's criminality, then lies to Congress about knowing about it. The chief executive knew not of that too. President Barack Obama said at a town hall event in Johannesburg, South Africa, on Saturday that unless we find new way of producing energy "the planet will boil over" if people in Africa are allowed to attain air conditioning, automobiles and big houses.
If you think the federal student-loan program looks like a bad deal for taxpayers, imagine how it would look with honest accounting. And now you don't need to imagine thanks to a new report that's receiving far too little attention. Another Obamacare Fumble. The White House says the decision, announced last Tuesday, to delay implementation of Obamacare's employer mandate was made because "a dialogue with businesses" revealed the need to reduce the reporting burden it placed on employers. This tale is enough to make a cat laugh. This crew doesn't do "dialogue.
Obama says U. Nemesis, After All. Nemesis warns us on the eve of the immigration debate that if Obama will ignore the legal requirements of his own bill, then he surely will be even bolder in subverting the legislative work of others. When shortly he will again lament that he is not a king or tyrant, remember that the disclaimer usually presages his attempt to act like one.
By now it's abundantly clear that there is not an honest bone in the Obama administration's body; [ From the start, it was clear that the "health care" law had nothing to do with health care. President Obama tells kids his favorite food is broccoli. And his favorite activity is lying to children," scoffed Comedy Central's Indecision blog in a tweet. Here's Obama's 'Smart' Government at Work. The president brags about how he's bringing smart, 21st century technology to government. But the news surrounding that talk provides a showcase for how inept his administration is when it comes to IT.
But the very next day, AP reported that a "computer system problem" has caused his administration to delay yet another piece of ObamaCare for at least a year. President Obama is being lauded for his plans to restrict carbon dioxide emissions. But the scheme looks more like the last refuge of a desperate movement, because the speech he gave in its defense was full of lies. His text was laden with myths, fables, distortions and outright lies.
In discussing the rationale for his plan, the President claims that carbon dioxide, or CO2, "causes climate change and threatens public health" and that "cutting carbon pollution will help keep our air and water clean and protect our kids. Why should anyone believe what the president says about ObamaCare? Last week he touted nonexistent rate cuts and rebate checks. And the White House now admits his promise about keeping your doctor was false.
In an e-mail to supporters, First Lady Michelle Obama says she grew up in a family that didn't need help from the government, and that her husband is working to make Americans free from dependence on government once again. The president made the suggestion when talking about members of Congress who have argued he does not have the constitutional authority to unilaterally suspend enforcement of parts of the Obamacare law. Bad Lies. We increasingly debate whether our leaders are incompetent or lying. Unfortunately, we need not choose. And, when our leaders view truth only as a malleable tactic, should we engage with them?
The answer to the first question is obviously no. Discussions, agreements and relationships cannot be based on lies.
The second question is more troubling. If our leaders are arrogant, lazy and bad liars, what do we do? President Obama tells comedian Jay Leno that "We don't have a domestic spying program. Obama also says the U. The president tells Leno, "The odds of dying in a terrorist attack are a lot lower than they are of dying in a car accident, unfortunately. NYT: No spying on Americans? Au contraire. On Tuesday, Barack Obama insisted that the US government isn't spying on Americans by surveilling the contents of their communications.
Less than two days later, the New York Times makes hash of that claim. The NSA, reports Charlie Savage, sifts through the content of "vast amounts" of electronic communications between Americans and people abroad in their search for links to terrorism, and not just the metadata. It seems like only yesterday that President Obama declared al Qaeda "has been decimated," is "on the run," "on its heels," "on the path to defeat," and any other number of such claims. Al-Qaeda's Reality Check.
During the presidential campaign, President Obama repeatedly claimed that al-Qaeda had been "decimated" and "on the path to defeat. When the details of Operation Fast and Furious were revealed, the Obama administration wanted you to believe it was an operation hatched and run out of an ATF office in Phoenix; that was a provable lie. When the IRS scandal broke, the Obama administration blamed it on 'rogue' employees in Cincinnati; this was a proven lie as well.
As we now know, it is almost never the American mainstream media breaking the big scoops surrounding anything that might embarrass this president; not the IRS scandal, not Benghazi, and not the NSA revelations. And now the media have been scooped by no less than al Qaeda with the major revelation that Obama's repeated boasts about "decimating" the terror group were false. The Internal Revenue Service's scandalous targeting of tea party and conservative groups refuses to die, as one by one the administration's explanations prove untrue.
Turns out the White House knew earlier. We were told the targeting was the work of a few rogue IRS employees in Cincinnati. Then those employees insisted that they were being managed from Washington. The Real Phony Scandal. As the end of September looms and the end of the current fiscal year, the media is filled with dire stories of the pending default of the United States. This fear is bogus. There is thus plenty of cash to pay our debt interest payments to bond holders. It is therefore misleading at best to say the US government is in danger of defaulting without a spending agreement for FY Poll: Voters believe scandals aren't 'phony'.
A majority of voters believe the scandals embroiling the Obama administration are not "phony," according to a Fox News poll. Voters in the Fox News poll also indicated they thought the controversies should be taken more seriously. Ambassador Christopher Stevens.
Fox poll shows "phony scandal" line playing worse that you'd think. After an avalanche of scandals hit the White House this spring, the Obama administration adopted the public-relations strategy of calling IRS political targeting, NSA domestic snooping, and the deaths of four Americans in an utterly predictable terrorist attack on a diplomatic facility "phony scandals.
According to a new Fox poll, even worse than you'd think. Like Clinton's famous sidestep [ But it's also not really true, and it suggests a sort of smirking contempt on the president's part for his interlocutors, and citizens. Did someone mention domestic surveillance? The Mother of All Scandals. Barack Obama, Susan Rice, and Hillary Clinton all falsely swore that the obscure amateur video maker Nakoula Basseley Nakoula was guilty of prompting a mass riot at Benghazi.
Barack Obama was reelected. During the Wednesday edition of his program, Fox News anchor Shepard Smith, not known as any sort of conservative, attacked the government for being dishonest and witholding critical information from Americans while at the same time also undertaking highly invasive surveillance programs. Because I can't figure out which parts to believe, so I choose not to believe any of it," Smith said in an interview with Fox News legal analyst Mercedes Colwin.
The Justice Department and FBI have quietly acknowledged they grossly overstated the scope of a mortgage fraud crackdown, which the administration heralded with much fanfare a few weeks before last year's presidential election.
- The Rabid!

According to a memo circulated by the FBI and a correction posted online by the Justice Department, the number of defendants, the number of victims and the size of the losses are, in reality, a fraction of what officials claimed last October. What if the president lied to us? White House spokesman 'not familiar with' Chris Lane murder. A press secretary who claims he is "not familiar" with a front-page news story is either lying or incompetent.
Joe Wilson Was So Right. Joe Wilson Day will acknowledge and applaud the Congressman's bold declaration of the truth about our president, Barack Obama. Four years ago next month, at Mr. Obama's address to a joint session of Congress on his health care proposal, Mr.
Today, after having had several years to study this president's truthfulness, objective observers recognize that Mr. Wilson's verbal volley could serve as a suitable response to virtually every proclamation of our current president. Obama's Long List of Broken Promises. Has any previous president devalued his words quite so much, in quite so many ways? In order to support my claim, it's worth taking a stroll down memory lane, to compare what Mr. Obama has said with what he has done. The sheer bandwidth of his broken promises and empty claims is quite extraordinary.
It started with the stimulus package. Infrastructure projects, which the president continues to tout, never seem to get built. He's been talking about dredging the port of Charleston, for example, to accommodate the big container ships coming in when the Panama Canal is widened. The canal widening is proceeding on schedule to be completed in McCaul 'stunned' at Kerry's estimate of jihadists among Syrian rebels. House Homeland Security Committee chairman Mike McCaul R--Texas told reporters that he was "stunned" to hear [Secretary of State John] Kerry tell House members on Wednesday that the number of jihadists serving in the Syrian rebel forces comprises less than a quarter of anti-Syrian government fighters.
Blurred Red Lines. Rather than walk point on national security, he prefers to blend in with the enlisted men and women. John Kerry's top 10 most embarrassing statements on Syria. The former Senator, however, has a shameful track record of appeasement of the brutal dictatorship in Damascus. During his time in the Senate, Kerry expended a great deal of effort in extending the hand of friendship to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, whom Hillary Clinton famously dubbed as a "reformer.
Even the liberals now realize that Obama is dishonest. Liberals reject Obama's case for Syria strikes; believe Obama and Kerry are lying. Indeed, a majority of the activists don't believe Mr. Kerry are being honest when they lay out their justifications for taking military action. Kerry portrait of Syria rebels at odds with intelligence reports.
Secretary of State John Kerry's public assertions that moderate Syrian opposition groups are growing in influence appear to be at odds with estimates by U. About the Syria red line that Obama drew, he now claims it was someone else. You probably could have anticipated this. Or it was someone else's fault. You-know-who from Texas. According to Obama, although it looked just like the American president standing at the little podium with no teleprompter in the White House Briefing Room, that modest man was actually speaking on behalf of the entire world.
Obama's choice of John Kerry to lead the charge for war against Syria demonstrates once again just what a tin ear this administration has. When you have a hard sell from the get-go, it helps to have a credible spokesman. Obama lies to the world: I didn't set a red line. This morning in a press conference in Sweden, Obama denied before the entire world that he set a red line, trying to spin it as 'the world set a red line' or something. The president thinks you're stupid. But just so you know, Mr. President, Americans are not stupid. And Americans know they aren't getting the truth on U.
Obama: 'Raising the Debt Ceiling Raising the debt ceiling doesn't increase the nation's debt, Pres. In a speech at the Business Roundtable headquarters in Washington, D. This kind of gibberish is a big reason voters have so little faith in their public officials these days.
Fall of the Republic: The Presidency of Barack Obama
Surprise: Obama lying about the debt ceiling. In April, President Obama proclaimed it to be the month when we "teach young people how to budget responsibly. Obama's big debt limit deception. That he would say something so factually false in a prepared text is very worrisome. That must include all those unions calling it a disaster, and all those who've lost jobs and pay because of the law. Telemundo, the only news outlet that appears willing to ask Obama a tough question, pressed him this week about polls showing most Americans oppose ObamaCare. Yes, they are," Obama responded. Obama struggles with debt talk at Ford plant: 'If we don't raise the debt ceiling, we're deadbeats'.
President Obama often refers to former President Clinton as his "Secretary of Explaining Stuff" for his ability to break down complex economic issues, such as Obamacare, for average voters. Perhaps Mr. Obama could have used Mr. Orwell, Obama, and Totalitarianism. Yes, mendacity is integral to totalitarianism.
We have had a sample of it in Barack Obama's two administrations. From TARP to Obamacare to Benghazi and now an off-and-on-and-off Syrian intervention, all the country has been fed is a continuing stream of lies, fabrications, and falsehoods. Obama gave away his hand early on when he boasted that his term in office would be the "most transparent" in our history. On that faux transparency, even liberal journalists are beginning to remove the rose-dyed gauze from their eyes.
Obama the Storyteller. There was a pattern in the book that became a pattern when Obama became a politician and then the President. Perhaps the most disturbing fabrication in Obama's book was the tale that he routinely used when pushing ObamaCare and while on the campaign trail of his own mother's death. More than Barack Obama is political king of the fake Twitter followers.
Among influential U. The four phoniest accounts in the sample, which included Democratic and Republican Party leaders in Washington, D. Obama's 'Fake' Twitter Followers Explained. Barack Obama has Obama's faux argument that we must raise the debt ceiling in order to pay our debts was an interesting one, considering previous comments that he made regarding American debt.
Sy Hersh on Osama bin Laden raid: "Not one word of it is true". He is angry about the timidity of journalists in America, their failure to challenge the White House and be an unpopular messenger of truth. Left-wing journalist Seymour Hersh, a living legend with the American mainstream media, states the obvious in a new interview with The Guardian: When it comes to Obama, the American media's unrequited crush on the president has turned them into useless fanboys and water carriers. Phony fatwa? Group claims Iranian anti-nuke edict cited by Obama [is] a hoax. But although talk of such a fatwa has been around for at least eight years, there's no evidence it was ever issued, according to the Middle East Media Research Institute, which flatly called the fatwa a hoax.

Jack Lew warns the country will run out of money later this month. Actually, that's another lie. It's all borrowed since then, much of it by this administration. He's Just Not That Clever. This is not leadership. It's not even a particularly good political tactic. It is the behavior of a bully and, to put it plainly, a liar. Obama's shutdown rhetoric are not the words of a man who is honestly open to hearing the ideas of others; they are the words of a petty tyrant, an Alinskyite thug, whose true opinion of the GOP was summed up in when he said, "If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun.
Obama as Chaos. They are chaos, and chaos is hard to understand, much less refute. Obama the hostage-taker. For the first time in US history, a president confessed to deliberately hurting his country to score points against his enemies. Which brings us to the national disgrace this week in which the Defense Department denied death benefits to the families of fallen service members. But Carney is surely lying. Park Service director blames threat of terrorism for closing Mall during shutdown.
In a contentious hearing, Republicans accused Mr. Jarvis of making the shutdown as painful as possible for Americans. Behold Our Elected Hypocrite. We bought wholesale the lies of a skillful liar of the most devious sort. And we, our children, and our children's children are doomed to reap what we've sown. Beating Obama. Obama does many things. He prevaricates, manipulates, defrauds, abuses and usurps.
But one thing that he does not do is compromise. Any strategy built on forcing Obama to compromise is inherently flawed. Obama never compromises because he has never really lost. Barack Obama and the People of the Lie. The evil pathology now poisoning our White House and the values of our Constitutional Republic is malignant narcissism. Our president is one of "The People of the Lie.
It is the truth. Journalists pride themselves for being on the cutting edge of events and trends, but they have been slow to realize or to admit that they have been instrumental in electing a pathological liar to the highest office in the land. Joe Wilson Vindicated. A lie from day one. Florida Blue cancelled policies for , Floridians. Kaiser Permanente dropped , individual plan holders in California, and Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina mailed out , cancellation notices.
It's happening nearly everywhere. People were promised they could keep their health insurance plan. That was a lie. They were duped and dropped. The liar is none other than the president of the United States. The revelations about NSA spying on allied leaders are now officially a scandal.
No, that scandal isn't that the U. Not surprisingly, anonymous leakers in the intelligence community are pushing back to shred the White House alibi. Obama's politics of oppression and lawlessness. If, as he pleads with every controversy swirling around his administration, he did not know, his incompetency demands his removal from office.
But it is inconceivable that Barack Obama would not know the status of his signature legislation, his very legacy. Obama just got used to saying things that were never challenged. He even signed an executive order to close it within a year. He said that you could keep your own health care plan or doctor.
Where was the media on both of these? They weren't doing their job. This is why he got away with making these statements. The story came out just as millions across the country are getting cancellation notices from their insurance companies. The Mendacious Mr. This is the group that for weeks knowingly misled the public on the events surrounding the lethal attacks on the American diplomatic outpost in Benghazi.
That claimed that the Affordable Care Act was both a tax and not a tax, depending on what the circumstances required. That hatched the sequestration idea, then denied it, and then blamed Republicans for it. That has perfected the art of stonewalling. That is lawless. And that ran a campaign in that was unusually vicious and dishonest, up to and including blaming Mitt Romney for the cancer death of a steelworker's wife. The unraveling of Barack Obama's 'Potemkin' presidency. Like other false constructs "shovel-ready jobs" and "leading from behind" , the mythic promise of Obamacare stands revealed now upon a foundation of lies.
It turns out that regulations not drafted in or shared before the November election really, really do matter. You cannot keep your health plan-period. God, Lies, and Obama. Americans are far from strangers to presidential lying. Bill Clinton and Richard Nixon excelled at it. His lies are not mainly for self-defense although Benghazi has elements of that. They are lies of ideological volition. He lies to get his way. In other words, to Obama these are not really lies, because he has no values, religious or otherwise, that make them so.
Obamacare laid bare. But you can't say that openly lest you lose elections. Which from the beginning was the biggest falsehood of them all. And yet the free lunch is the essence of modern liberalism. Free mammograms, free preventative care, free contraceptives for Sandra Fluke. Obamacare's Falsehoods: Replace Obama's teleprompter with a lie detector.
Every statement made by the President and his press people has become suspect. President Barack Obama and press spokesman Jay Carney would each need to pass a great many polygraph tests to restore even a slight level of public trust. Now CBS News reports the total number of people who actually signed up that day was six. Single digit. The Obama Facade Cracks at Last. Bob Woodward, one of the journalists famed for breaking the Watergate story, called the Obama Administration a "rat's nest of concealment and lies" and described it as a "secret government. After he spoke at the National Prayer Breakfast, including critical remarks about President Obama's leadership, the famous Johns Hopkins neurosurgeon Benjamin Carson joined a long line of conservative who have been audited by the IRS.
Barack Obama is certainly an accomplished liar. This essay will spotlight a few from among a lengthy list of his outrageous lies; consider whether it is possible that, in his mind, he is not lying; and then explain why the incessant prevarications might actually reflect something hopeful about the American people. Obama's lies are legion. They include: [ President Pinocchio: He clearly lied about ObamaCare. I'm infuriated because I was lied to," one woman told the Los Angeles Times as part of a story on how some middle-class Californians have been stunned to learn the real costs of ObamaCare.
A Dishonest Presidency. It's not easy to get a lie into a presidential speech. Every draft address is circulated to the White House senior staff and key Cabinet officials in something called the "staffing process. During this process, it turns out, some of Obama's policy advisers objected to the "you can keep your plan" pledge, pointing out that it was untrue.
But it stayed in the speech. That does not happen by accident. It requires a willful intent to deceive. White House on honesty in the Age of Obama: "What difference does it make?

But official numbers show million people could lose their current coverage. That's because many employer-based policies will also be cancelled as inadequate under Obamacare. Until that next wave of bad news hits, Obama's team is pushing the notion that presidential truth-telling doesn't really matter. Obama Lies Like a Marxist. A week after he signed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, President Barack Obama went on a road trip to Portland, Maine, to boast and prevaricate about what he had just done. It hasn't happened yet. It won't happen in the future.
President Obama didn't misspeak; He lied. Americans don't always pay attention to politics. Who can blame them? And, actually, that's what Obama has successfully counted on, that his live-streamed snippets of falsehoods blared by a largely complicit media would trump critics' negative natterings. But the broken promises, false claims and tortured truths have reached a critical mass now.
Faith Traditions'. There's also the tall tale about President Obama's mother's deathbed fight with her insurer. In several speeches, as well as debates, Barack Obama claimed a heartless insurance company denied his mother, Ann Dunham, health care coverage because of a pre-existing cancer. Her medical bills mounted while her health failed, he said. Though she died a bankrupt woman in , her nightmare inspired him to keep fighting for health care reform. Except it wasn't true. It has been disclosed in a recently published book about the campaign, Double Down by Mark Halperin and John Heilemann, that the president told aides that he is "really good at killing people" with drones.
I think the president is being far too modest. Drones aren't the half of it. He's really good at killing lots of things. Gone for the last five years has been any hope of a truth being uttered by an American president or his spokespersons, and it isn't coming back until he is gone. What we have seen in the last few weeks regarding ObamaCare has been mesmerizing, with endless replays of the president uttering lies which evidence shows he knew were lies when he said them.
NBC's Chuck Todd scored a huge interview with President Obama Thursday and opened things by immediately drilling down on the president's relentlessly repeated lie that under ObamaCare you can keep your current insurance plan if you like it. Ultimately, though, Todd came away with the impression that Obama doesn't believe he lied. And Todd is probably right, which is a little unnerving.
There are so many instances where it would be appropriate to use the "period" verbal punctuation with this President. Executive Order Ignores Climate Reality. The executive order first cites "an increase in prolonged periods of excessively high temperatures. Historical Climatology Network. The U. Consider the non-apology apology about the Affordable Care Act that Barack Obama made earlier this week. Remember the misleading information about Benghazi which is well over a year old and still unresolved.
Think about the proposition that "al Qaeda is dead and General Motors is alive. What if, cynically but hypothetically, the so-called "crisis in the White House" is a manufactured talking point to divert attention from real issues which are far more subversive? The president is expected to say that Americans can keep their insurance policies even if they don't meet Obamacare coverage requirements.
He would administratively "grandfather" more individual plans. The president promised to catch the Benghazi terrorists, but hasn't. He promised he would never let Iran build a nuclear weapon, which they are now weeks away from. He promised he would not let Syria cross a "red line" on chemical weapons, which he now believes they did but hasn't done anything about. The president promised to change the dishonest ways of Washington; he now embodies them. Yet, the president only said he was "sorry that people are finding themselves in this situation based on reassurances they got from me.
Barack Obama, Derelict. Barack Obama and those who serve at his whim have declared that he knew nothing about the IRS witch-hunt of Republicans, spying by the NSA on Americans and foreign leaders, Fast and Furious, ObamaCare website problems, that he actually set red lines regarding Syria though he denied it later , security problems at the Benghazi consulate, and spying on the Associated Press.
When asked, Obama has asserted that he learned about all these problems only after reading about them in the media.
