    For Posterity, a very long list of Obama's lies that the Media completely ignored.

    quiet.jpg


    1) Carried out military interventionism in Libya without Congressional approval

    In June 2011, U.S. Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) said that Obama had violated the Constitution when he launched military operations in Libya without Congressional approval.

    In April 2014, Ralph Nader said that Obama should be impeached for his actions in Libya.

    2) Gave a no-bid contract to Halliburton cronies – just like Bush did

    In May 2010, it was reported that the Obama administration had selected KBR, a former subsidiary of Halliburton, for a no-bid contract worth as much as $568 million through 2011, just hours after the Justice Department had said it would pursue a lawsuit accusing the Houston-based company of using kickbacks to get foreign contracts.


    Don’t be fooled by the words “former subsidiary.” These are the same Halliburton cronies that Bush gave a no-bid contract to.

    3) Has an administration full of lobbyists, after promising he wouldn’t have any

    On November 15, 2007, in Las Vegas, Nevada, Obama said that lobbyists

    “… will not work in my White House.”

    However, by February 2010, he had more than 40 lobbyists working in his administration. A list of them can be seen here.

    Does "The first time I heard of that was on the news today" only count once?

    are we really taking the "well he doesn't lie AS MUCH approach?

    letting EITHER SIDE get away with this is why we're in the mess we're in. both can point to the other side for being arguably worse.

    wheee. what a great country.

    My favorite was this:

    2) Gave a no-bid contract to Halliburton cronies – just like Bush did

    It would seem that the “non questioning” Press was also not questioning Bush.
    As I recall, KBR/B&R also were used in Bosnia under Clinton on a no-bid basis.

    The first one is bullshit so I did not bother with the rest.

    Obama had the same blank checkbook that Bush II did and that Trump now does.

    The Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF), Pub. L. 107-40, codified at 115 Stat. 224 and passed as S.J.Res. 23 by the United States Congress on September 14, 2001 is still in full effect and has never been canceled.

    I was actually giving you some support there….

    My my my….are you accusing a major political party of hypocrisy? I’m sure that is the first time that has ever happened.

    Just in case you’re wondering; which I know is a dangerous thing; the reason there are no-bid contracts is because the bidding process is lengthy and time consuming. In a war zone, there isn’t time for the bid process to play out a lot of times. Additionally and just as importantly, a proven contractor is a good thing when there are lives on the line vs. going with an unknown entity.
