Pinocchio Obama’s Top 20 presidential lies

President Barack Obama seems to be setting a record among U.S. presidents. But it’s a record he’d rather keep secret. In this era of ubiquitous cameras capturing everything, Obama may have set a new record for presidential lies.

Turns out Obama is a man of empty pledges and unkept promises. Yet mainstream media sympathizers or accomplices , with their “nothing to report here” treatment of Obama, have largely let him get away with a stream of lies and broken promises by diverting attention to other events, or whitewashing them.

Let’s take a stroll down Obama’s liar lane and see what we find:

- “We will close the detention camp in Guantanamo Bay.” Still open.

- “If we have not gotten our troops out [of Iraq] by the time I am president, it is the first thing I will do.” Didn’t happen.

- “Today I’m pledging to cut the deficit in half by the end of my first term in office.” Instead, the national debt increased $5 trillion on his watch.

- “As soon as we’re out of this recession, we’ve got to get serious about starting to live within our means.” Huh?

- “We agree on reforms that will reduce the costs of health care. Families will save on their premiums.”

- “We’ve got shovel-ready projects all across the country.” Later, Obama admitted his own lie, saying, “There’s no such thing as shovel-ready projects.”

- “We reject the use of national security … to spy on citizens who are not suspected of a crime.”

- We “will ensure that federal contracts over $25,000 are competitively bid.”

- We “will eliminate all income taxation of seniors making less than $50,000 per year.”

- “We are going to work with you to lower your [health care] premiums by $2,500,” and we’ll “do it by the end of my first term as president.”

- “I don’t take a dime of their [lobbyists’] money, and when I am president, they won’t find a job in my White House.” In fact, Obama granted waivers at will, and more than a dozen lobbyists got jobs in the Obama administration.

- “I pledge to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution.” But Obama has ignored the constitutional amendment granting powers not enumerated in the Constitution to the states.

- “If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.”

- “The sequester is not something that I’ve proposed. It is something that Congress has proposed.” The truth is that the White House proposed an “automatic sequester” on July 12, 2011.

- “I didn’t set a red line [in Syria].” And yet, at a prior news conference, using unscripted language in a statement, he said, “a red line for us is we start seeing a whole bunch of chemical weapons moving around.”

- “It’s here that companies like Solyndra are leading the way toward a brighter and more prosperous future.” After Obama’s administration gave the company $535 million, Solyndra and its solar panels went belly up.

- To Israel, “We have not only made sure that they [Iran] have to stop adding additional centrifuges, we’ve also said that they’ve got to roll back their 20 percent advanced enrichment … down to zero.” In fact, the deal allows Iran uranium enrichment of 5 percent.

- “Eighty percent of Americans support including higher taxes as part of the [debt ceiling] deal.” However, that same week, a poll by Rasmussen showed only 34 percent supported a tax hike as part of the deal.

- In 2006: “America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better. I, therefore, intend to oppose the effort to increase America’s debt limit.” But as president, Obama has led the charge each year to increase America’s debt.

- And, let’s not forget PolitiFact’s 2013 Lie Of The Year: “If you like your health care plan, you’ll be able to keep your health care plan, period. No one will take it away, no matter what. … You can keep your family doctor.”

Love Obama or detest him, the evidence mounts that millions of Americans don’t know the man who is their president.

    Oh I can’t wait for the Elise R, seazen and the 2 or 3 other Progressive sheep to comment here, something like Bush lied about WMD, or, “Bush lied and people died”. Yea well, we now have Benghazi Bama and, “Obama lied and our Ambassador died”. Or, “Obama lied and Agent Brian Terry Died”. How about the BIG LIE!!
    “Obama lied and Seal Team VI died”.
    “Obama lied and Healthcare died”.
    “Obama lied and Detroit died”.

    • buck

      I’m surprised the trolls aren’t here yet either…

      • NoCrud

        When the subject of Lying comes around, I think they’d fall into the same Lying category as their hero: The Obamaroid.

        No doubt they’re working up a list of “But Bush Did It Too” claims. Their rusty tune never changes.

    • Wraith Against RichOligarchy

      obama lied about killing Osama Bin Laden…No body of Osama was ever shown to the public, no proof of it, & the liberal media covered it up. So another lie can be added.
      Supposedly they killed him, instead of capturing him & bringing him to face American justice, how convenient, so yes, another lie to the list.

    Nixon looked like a Saint compared to this dirt bag.

  • fedup

    Kind of like Obamacare – you have to elect it to see what’s in it.

    But how did he ever get a second term? Oh yeah, he lied.

  • Mark Richardson

    Even the most gullible and naive lemmings who were willingly led down the primrose path and scammed to vote this charlatan into office, are now realizing they got snookered by hitching themselves to the Pinocchio’s wagon. But the damage has been done and on many levels. Sad. Very sad.

    • Mlm46

      One of today’s headlines was that Obama’s approval rating was the lowest since Nixon! Guess that hope and change isn’t working out anymore, is it? Yes, so sad.

  • NoCrud

    Also include the “half-lies” that The Obamaroid told, the most recent being:

    If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep it. If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. Period” HOWEVER, what was NOT said was:
    “If you like the price you paid for your old insurance plan and your doctor, you can keep them.”

    So, sure… You can keep the old plan and keep the old doctor but with triple to quadruple the price monthly and with a $6000 (or higher?) copay.

    Telling a half-truth is still telling a half-lie. And that is the best this “Present” can do. “Truth” is not in his active vocabulary.

    • fedup

      You are too kind to him. He blatantly lied- over and over and over.Despicable.

      • NoCrud

        I was talking only about his “keep your plan/keep your doctor” lie. Regarding the other lies, you are of course right.

        • fedup

          “keep your plan” is a doosey.
          It will be in the English language as an expression similar to Bulls*it forever.

          • NoCrud

            I had not thought of that but you are right. When some Liberoid tries to BS us, we need to look at him/her, smile and say: “You can keep your plan.”

            Primo.

    • HonestToAtee

      I also wonder if people listen when these lying Libtards claim that the “skyrocketing cost of health insurance at 25% a year increases, blah blah blah”. If costs rose that much every year then why is it most policies were in the $300 range per person until Obamacare? THEY LIE!

      • NoCrud

        ObamaScare for users of VA (Veterans Administration ) hospitals is something I can speak to. I was informed at the VA that my plan under BC-BS (Blue Cross-Blue Shield) would not change but that I needed to contact the provider.

        I use the VA Hospital and do not need any other insurance but had BC-BS since I retired in year 2000. However, I recently received a BC-BS Senior Advisor fall newsletter that let me know that I still have BC-BS insurance but guess what? The monthly rate has quadrupled and the copay now is $6000 — the same as Obamacare.

        When they say you can keep your doctors and you can keep your plan (“Period”), it appears that you still cannot keep the old rate that was paid previously. Is telling half a lie the same as a lie? Just remember the old axiom: Deception is a lie.

        • HonestToAtee

          Thanks for your candidness about your own personal nightmare! I just
          can’t understand why people would believe that the Fed Gov’t with all of
          it’s fraud and waste and cronyism could take over the entire healthcare
          industry, add 20 million or so illegal immigrants and others to the
          insured rolls, give waivers to their friends like the Unions and big
          Corporations, increase the size of the Government bureaucracy by the
          thousands and then lower the cost of insuring Americans and stopping
          that dreaded thing known as “profits” by the Insurance Companies! HOW
          DUMB CAN THESE COMMUNIST TROLLS BE?
          Obama has these big Agencies in
          bed with him, they are all going to profit on this nightmare! Just look
          who they always target, this new budget deal that several RINO’s have
          worked out with the Progressives only cuts the benefits of Veterans and
          wounded Warriors! Obamacare is a JOKE and if it wasn’t such an evil plan
          then why would they have a built in “DEATH PANEL” that is run by none
          other than, “some live and some die”, Kathleen baby killer Sebelius?
          Bottom line NoCrud is that we are all being fleeced in the biggest
          wealth redistribution scam ever perpetrated on the hard working American
          public!

            1. You are in a game you are losing,

            2. You cannot change the rules of the game, and

            3. You cannot even get out of the game.

    HEIL OBAMA

  • Doug

    There’s absolutely no way this man will be reelected.

    • NoCrud

      That would have been a more appropriate comment before the 2012 election. I would have gone for it, too.

    • Wraith Against RichOligarchy

      But he got reelected…so who’s fault is it?

      • HonestToAtee

        Doug is an Obama voter.

  • Wraith Against RichOligarchy

    I will state it again; Mr. obama is the biggest, hugest mistake this country has even produced. Lesson to learn here, never put your trust, nor your blind faith into a man.
