Ben Stein: A bank would be ‘charged with criminal fraud’ for lies like Obama’s

During a discussion Saturday morning with Fox News host Neil Cavuto, actor and political commentator Ben Stein suggested President Obama should be charged with criminal fraud for the lies he has told.

Stein also said he’s sick of Obama saying he didn’t know what was in “his own most important achievement,” adding that if he did not know “he should not be president.”

“The president lied to us about every aspect of this… I’m getting kind of sick of him saying he didn’t know what was in his own bill. He didn’t know what happened in Benghazi. He didn’t know what happened in the US.

“If he didn’t know what was in his own signature legislation, his own most important document, his own most important achievement, he should not be president…

If this government were a bank, a large investment bank, it would be charged with criminal fraud for the lies Mr. Obama has told over and over again about this healthcare. Every single ‘scare’ that the Republicans said wasn’t scary enough.”

    Ben Stein voted for Obama in 2008, so did Charlie Payne.

      isn’t it wonderful, that people like him are finally waking up to the truth? albeit too late…

      Ben Stein became enlightened about BHO some time ago. This isn’t the first time he’s criticized him.

    Stein may be on to something- but I doubt there;’s a States Attorney in the country with the nerve to do it..

    It’s not just investment companies that an be charged with fraud for grossly misrepresenting a product..

    If you put a commercial on TV advertising a vacuum cleaner that will take the family dog for a walk- and people buy it, you better be selling them a vacuum cleaner that has at least some ability to take the family dog for walk–

    — or the sheriff will be taking you for a walk

    Unlike Members of Congress, the president has no immunity from arrest

    Bankers charged with a crime…what world does he live in?

    Banks don’t get charged for “criminal fraud” Ben. They get bailed out for 300% on the crappy loans they’ve made keeping the money they’ve made on those loans and the property.

    However I agree with you that Obama is roughly guilty of 360,000,000 million counts of fraud.

    Apparently Ben Stein wasn’t around for the financial crisis of 2008. Let’s see, who was charged with selling blue-chip securities based on sub-prime loans they knew would default? Oh that’s right, NOBODY.
