    I am dead serious. In all my years of looking around internet forums, I have never seen a group try so valiantly to discredit or blast anything that came out against their guy than the Obamaites here. Obama lies and lies and the responses from the left loons here is that it's ok as long as Obama wins. That or they bring up Bush. It's absolutely sad, but yet hilarious at the same time.

    I was just at my dad's on the beach for lunch. I asked him this very question.. I asked him how a man who sat by and watched on a live feed, Americans attacked and die, DO NOTHING.. ABSOLUTELY NOTHING and his Zombies-- couldn't care less.. My dad is right.. When you come from a place of no morals, there's no where to fall.. They justify everything they do because there's no benchmark for sin, evil, wrong doing in them-- Only they are allowed the break the law, lie, cheat, etc..

    Calling us kooks and loons doesn't get you an answer. Just a "thank you" from one of the board flakes. :lol::lol::lol:

    My pleasure LOL

    Obama- “For the first time since 1990, American manufacturers are creating new jobs.”
    Truth-O-Meter rating: False

    Obama- “Preventive care … saves money, for families, for businesses, for government, for everybody.”
    Truth-O-Meter rating: False
    (PolitiFact- Wrong in 2009, and wrong today)

    Obama- “Thirty million Americans, including a lot of people in Florida, are going to be able to get healthcare next year because of that law.”
    Truth-O-Meter rating: False

    Obama- “I made a bunch of these promises during the campaign. … We’ve got about 60 percent done in three years.”
    Truth-O-Meter rating: False
    (PolitiFact- “In the Works” does not equal “done”)

    Obama Admin.- Under President Barack Obama, the United States has “doubled our exports.”
    Truth-O-Meter rating: False

    Obama Admin.- The president’s proposed budget “will help reduce the deficit by $400 billion over the next decade to the lowest level since Dwight Eisenhower was president.”
    Truth-O-Meter rating: False
    (PolitiFact-A mangled reference to a prior talking point)

    Obama- Under the White House’s budget proposal, “we will not be adding more to the national debt” by the middle of the decade.
    Truth-O-Meter rating: False
    (PolitiFact-Revenue would equal outlays, but he ignores growing interest on the debt)

    Obama- Twelve judges have thrown out legal challenges to the health care law because they rejected “the notion that the health care law was unconstitutional.”
    Truth-O-Meter rating: False
    (PolitiFact-Score two to two on judges’ decisions on constitionality)

    Obama- “I didn’t raise taxes once.”
    Truth-O-Meter rating: False
    (PolitiFact-We’ve tracked a few increases)

    Obama- When President Franklin D. Roosevelt started Social Security, “it only affected widows and orphans,” and when Medicare began, “it was a small program.”
    Truth-O-Meter rating: False
    (PolitiFact-A grain of truth in the big picture, far off on the details)

    Obama- The Bush administration had been “giving (auto companies) billions of dollars and just asking nothing in return.”
    Truth-O-Meter rating: False

    Obama- “The vast majority of the money I got was from small donors all across the country.”
    Truth-O-Meter rating: False
    (PolitiFact-Big donors bankrolled much of Obama’s campaign)

    Obama- “We’ve excluded lobbyists from policymaking jobs.”
    Truth-O-Meter rating: False
    (PolitiFact-We found at least four)

    Obama- When Obama was interviewed by American reporters in Asia, “Not one of them asked me about Asia. Not one of them asked me about the economy.”
    Truth-O-Meter rating: False
    (PolitiFact-More than one did)

    Obama- Insurers delayed an Illinois man’s treatment, “and he died because of it.”
    Truth-O-Meter rating: False
    (Insurer’s decision was reversed and man lived three more years)

    Obama- Health reform will “give every American the same opportunity” to buy health insurance the way members of Congress do.
    Truth-O-Meter rating: False

    Obama- Preventive care “saves money.”
    Truth-O-Meter rating: False
    (PolitiFact-Covering preventive care for everyone is a net cost)

    Obama- (No earmarks in spending bill)
    Truth-O-Meter rating: False

    That was only from page one of Obama’s false statement PolitiFact files.

    (Note- Skipped one from page one because while PolitiFact rated it as false it was because Obama misspoke and quoted the wrong time frame, so I don’t count that as an outright lie to the American people, just sloppy.)

    Page two is here and page three is here.

    Noteworthy- Those three pages do not include the five instances where Obama was ruled worse than “false” but were called “pants on fire” false.

    The another three pages of statements that are listed as “mostly false” on the Truth-O-Meter.

    Mostly false statements by Obama or his administration- Page one here, page two here and page three here.

    All those listed above are from one fact checking organization, PolitiFact, which leaves one to wonder how many lies Obama has told in total since organizations often fact check different statements.



    Barack Obama has been proven by more than one fact checking organization to be a habitual liar.

    Pot calling the kettle black, IMO. You're so sure of your positions, you believe it entitles you to treat people like garbage. FYI, your dad doesn't know shit about me and neither do you.
