Does Obama Ever Tell The Truth About Anything?

Barack Obama claimed to be a member of the U.S. Senate Banking Committee, which he is not.

(CNN) – Responding to an Israeli reporter’s question Wednesday on his commitment to protect the Jewish state, Barack Obama pointed to a bill “we passed” in the U.S. Senate Banking Committee that tightens sanctions and authorizes divestment from Iran. “My committee,” he called it.

Except that he isn’t a member of the Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs.

“Just this past week, we passed out of the out of the U.S. Senate Banking Committee – which is my committee – a bill to call for divestment from Iran as way of ratcheting up the pressure to ensure that they don’t obtain a nuclear weapon,” Obama said at a press conference in Sderot, Israel.

    It is sad to see and hear that the current president of the us can’t seem to tell the hruth about anything. I wonder that this man ever became a senator let alone the president .
    This tells me the voters are idiots. What bothers me most is that the rule of law is ignored by this man and his cohorts . They act as though the law has no rule over them and appear blind to the consequences of that action. The consequences are lawlessness as many americans think what is good for the goose is good for the gander , or what one can do any can do . So if he picks his laws to disobey then others will pick their law to disobey and soon no law will be obeyed. But maybe that is their intention .

    • This was all clear to me in 2008, especially with the way Obama characteristically refused to address his 20 year relationship with Rev. Wright’s radical church–basically saying, “I never knew”, and yet “I cannot turn my back on this man, my long-time friend” (these are not exact quotes, just the gist), before grabbing the opportunity presented him by Wright’s turning on him, to throw Wright and that 20-year “almost family” relationship behind him, which the media and the voters AND the McCain campaign all allowed him to get away with. So I also knew the voters were idiots and the world was crazy about Obama, months before Obama was elected. I threw Obama away in my mind, as someone completely without character, after the utterly clear Rev. Wright episode, and that and the way the Democratic leadership blatantly shoved Obama forward over Hillary Clinton, and tried to vilify her, was the foundation of my later summarizing the larger situation in the world, as “The War of the Insane Left”. The increasing influence of Islamists also fits into that picture, as I would inform you that what you wrote about Obama also fits Mohammed, the founder of Islam (who rationalized his disobedience of any inconvenient law, or even any religious injunction including his own, when he found it inconvenient), and all of his followers today who are taught “taqqiya”, or lying to misdirect the attention and sympathies of “non-believers” in Allah (and many others have pointed out that Islam is not just a religion, but a political ideology and way of life that, as I have noted over and over for many years, shares with the Insane Left the convenient philosophy of “the ends justify the means”. And of course, the global warming hysteria also fits into the same picture, of rampant incompetence–and lying–among the “experts” and insane judgment by individuals at all levels of society. At the core of the insanity is the long-time (society-wide and worldwide) clinging to unsupported and reasonably unsupportable dogmas, especially within science itself, the bastion of dispassionate reason dedicated to finding the truth. I have been waiting for years to note the harbinger of a return to real reason, over the thoughtless or lying reliance on blind faith, as in the “consensus”. One such harbinger would be if the world caught on to my Venus/Earth comparison, with a ground swell of sudden realization of the simple truth that there is no greenhouse effect, of increasing temperature with increasing atmospheric carbon dioxide.

    I always believe the DIRECT OPPOSITE to anything Obama says and ultimately find myself much closer to the truth.

      Sounds like a Jerry Seinfield episode where George does the opposite of what he would normally do — and is successful. But this is reality. So in obama’s case, not surprisingly, in spite of him saying the right thing, he follows through with his own progressive ways with catastrophic results.

    As opposed to your whole blog which never lies…. oh wait.

    You could write a dissertation on how to lie and fudge the numbers, but you already have. It’s called your blog.

    Narcissists create their ‘own truth’. There often is a kernel of truth in their diction, but the final result is always twisted to make them look good.

    My brother in law adopted a child. He turned out to be a narcissist of Obama proportions. There is no cure.

    The big O’s college career is also looking curiouser and curiouser … Apparently people in his graduating class/ department at Columbia don’t even remember the guy. The really intriguing thing is that the most reasonable hypothesis is evidently that he was a foreign exchange student. If so, he wasn’t on the same competitive track that most students at Columbia were. (This would also explain the refusal to release his records.)

    Gilliard, Obama … Jorge Luis Borges once wrote a book entitled, The Universal History of Infamy. Someone should write a similar volume entitled, The Universal History of Rent Seeking.
