President Pinocchio

A few weeks ago, I wrote an editorial called, “President Santa Claus” in reference to the policies put forth by President Barack Hussein Obama. In it, I tried to explain how Obama trolled for votes by offering and giving out “freebies” to the “low information” voters. It seems like he succeeded, but, in reality, the country lost.

Upon reflection, I could’ve used another sobriquet to describe Obama, how’s this, “President Pinocchio”? He is not only our leader, but he is our “misleader”. We all know politicians lie and lie again and again - some are just fibs, but in in Obama’s case, they are “whoppers”. You’ve got to hand it to him, he will look you in the eye and blatantly tell you a lie without blinking an eye. I guess if you are a narcissist, like Obama, you are incapable of telling a lie even when you are telling one.

Remember, during the 2008 campaign, in a forum sponsored by the Rev. Rick Warren, he openly and emphatically said that marriage was between a man and a woman, and he felt that way as a Christian. Well, I guess he was telling a lie then, as he eventually changed his “belief system” into now believing in same-sex marriage. Was his flip-flop on this subject done for political purposes - is Harry Reid a “four flusher” (definition of “four flusher”: one who so full of crap that it would take four flushes during the movement to clear the bowl). The answer is, of course it was for political purposes!

Other blatant attempts by Obama to tell out-and-out lies are his pronouncements about his future “legacy”, Obamacare (a/k/a the (Un)Affordable Care Act). He said, time after time, to the American people, that they could keep their health care plan, period. He said they could keep their doctor, period. He said a family of four would save $2,500 by buying a policy under Obamacare, they didn’t - all lies, and according to the Washington Post, he got “4 Pinocchio’s” for his blatant disregard for the truth.

Not only does he lie to the American people, he lies to the world. He said that if the Syrian government used chemical weapons (he drew a “red line”) there would be dire consequences - there were none after chemical weapons were used. He lied again. He said Iran will not get nuclear weapons as long as he was president - well, Iran is well along and in just a short amount of time, they will announce that they have the bomb. Another lie. It now looks like Israel will have to do it alone, to take the nukes out of Iran, because we are now considered a “paper tiger”.

The list of lies goes on and on, but the main stream media seems to still be in Obama’s pocket as they obviously omit reporting on his out-and-out lies in their reporting of events both here and abroad. What a disgrace from the 4th Estate, who is supposed to monitor the goings on in government, and to inform the people of misdeeds and outright lying by the people in power. It looks like they have abdicated their oversight duty for partisan political purposes. Well, if they won’t tell the story, I will, our President should be called by his rightful name, President Pinocchio. Now you can call me a racist.

You are too generous, Chuck. Here are just a few more of his most recent lies.

1. We’ve got close to 7 million Americans who have access to health care for the first time because of Medicaid expansion.

2. Keystone pipeline would mean maybe 2,000 jobs

3. We have doubled the distance our cars will go on a gallon of gas.

4. If you like your health insurance plan, you can keep it.

5. I said benghazi was a terrorist attack from the beginning.

6. First of all, I didn’t set a red line the world set a red line.

7. We got back every dime we used to rescue the financial system.

8. My budget will cut the deficit by $4 Trillion over 10 years.

I could go on. But Obama has a problem telling the truth.
