Liar in Chief

Thank you Breitbart for putting this video together, 16 lies in 7 minutes.

This was one of my biggest concerns about Obama before the election. That he seems to have no compunction against telling obvious lies. They are legion, and they are well documented.

All politicians fudge on their promises. But this president manages to transcend the normal political exaggeration and dissimulation. Whereas past executives shaded the truth, Barack Obama trumps that: on almost every key issue, what Obama says he will do, and what he says is true, is a clear guide to what he will not do, and what is not true. It is as if “truth” is a mere problem of lesser mortals.
When will Obama fans notice this?

I think what bothers me most is that he's happily willing to lie not just on little things (though we shouldn't be accepting of that, either), but on the big things. He lies on the things that really matter to the American people. Lobbyists in his administration, wise use of our hard-earned tax dollars, especially eliminating earmarks (though they're really a small portion of spending), and transparency in government.

There's no change here.

Before the election I told my wife, "I hope he's a quick learner."

The results are in. He's a slow learner.
