Obama Ratings Sink As Trustworthiness Comes Into Question

by Alan Greenblatt
November 02, 2013 8:00 AM

Barack Obama has been subjected to as many personal attacks as any modern president.

Terrorist. Traitor. Hater of America. Secret Muslim.

Unusually for a politician, however, the one thing he hasn't been called much is a liar, except by his most adamant critics.

That's all changed now. Obama is being widely called out for having claimed, repeatedly, that under the Affordable Care Act, people who liked their health insurance plans could keep them.

This was a key selling point. Yet it has turned out not to be true for everyone in the individual insurance market. There have been a number of reports that personnel in the White House knew this would be the case.

That leaves Obama in a terrible position — having Americans trying to decide whether he lied intentionally, or wasn't well informed enough to tell the truth.

It's a common presidential predicament, but it never looks good when a president's aides rush to defend him from accusations of lying by saying he was unaware of all the circumstances.

"When you've got a choice between being duplicitous or out of touch, out of touch is probably better, but it's a bad choice for presidents," says Mary Stuckey, a Georgia State University professor who has written several books about presidential rhetoric.

He's been lying repeatedly over a period of five years, and suddenly NPR notices?  How about saying he would run his campaign under public finance limits? Guantanamo?  Fast & Furious?  Benghazi?  This cheap thug does not just fudge things, like your typical politician.  He looks straight at the camera and lies.  And usually NPR laps it up.

The most transparent White House in history.
Cutting the debt by half.
Putting Obamacare debates on CSPAN.
 
Almost every so called 'promise' he has made has been a lie and is unfulfilled. As you say, every politician is given some wiggle room, but this guy has made huge extravagant claims and his default or his lie rate is close to 100%.
 
That is what makes Obama different than other people. He looks people who love, and in some cases depend on him, and he outright lies directly to their face, while knowing at the time that he is lying. His ability to lie is pathological.
You cannot "COEXIST" with people who want to kill you.

Happyg posted a thread 2 days ago which lists a lot of Obama's lies. The list is very extensive but I doubt if its exhaustive.

It's pretty simple.. if O's purple lips are moving he is lying.
