Obama and Lies

Obama has said that he hopes the Supreme Court will not overturn Obamacare since it passed Congress and is a constitutional law. But that is precisely what the Supreme Court has been doing for the past 200 years. And, as for whether Obamacare is a constitutional law, someone needs to refresh Obama on his law knowledge; Obamacare did not pass with a huge majority in Congress and many experts have stated that it is Obama who has gone against the Constitution. He is a slippery devil.

One of the highly developed talents of President Barack Obama is the ability to say things that are demonstrably false, and make them sound not only plausible but inspiring.

But Obama is much smoother. On this and on many other issues, you would have to know what the facts are to know that he is lying. He is obviously counting on the fact that, in this era of dumbed-down education, many people have no clue as to what the facts are.

He is also counting on something else -- namely, that the pro-Obama media will not expose his lies.

One of the many ways of lying smoothly is to simply redefine words. Barack Obama is a master at that as well.

It would be hard to become nostalgic about Richard Nixon, who was forced to resign in disgrace. But at least you could tell when he was lying. Obama's lies are just as big but not as visible, and the media that exposed Nixon is covering for Obama.
