CAPTION: Helpful White House video explains "new benefits and protections" of Obamacare, especially for the fortunate people whose insurance policies are getting canceled, so they can be proof positive Barack Obama is the biggest liar in history.
Barack Obama's supposed allure is that he is a very smart fellow—at least very smart compared to some recent presidents, and one recent president in particular.
But the problem is that if Obama is so smart, how does he keep being so damned absent from so many important loops? Is it disengagement? Treachery or shortsightedness on the part of subordinates who don't want to admit failure (or Merkel-spying) to the boss?
Maybe. But there is another possibility of course, which is that Barack Obama is a pathological liar, and maybe the biggest liar in history.
By “biggest” I mean the most influential liar, the person whose lies have impacted the most people.
Now, you could argue that the winner of this dubious award is Adolph Hitler, whose big lies were bigger than even Barack Obama’s. But the thing about Hitler is that usually he was telling the truth, at least concerning what he believed and what he was going to do about it, but people preferred to pay no attention to what Hitler was saying, or to not take him seriously (how could he really mean such crazy things?!), until it was too late.
Barack Obama, on the other hand, seems to be perfectly immune to taking any principled stands on anything. The only exception to that has been that Obama thinks that "compromise" means a unilateral surrender to one's enemies, which he nevertheless pursues as if that's a good thing. Even in his latest venture into alleged backbone-displaying, Obama and the Dems had actually already given away the store to the Republicans, BEFORE then forcing the GOP to take that deal, by Obama's hanging tough over Obamacare.
In addition to Hitler, you could argue that George W. Bush was a really big liar, and no doubt he was, or no doubt Bush was sufficiently indifferent to fact-based as opposed to faith-based truth that it amounted to lying. But, the problem for Barack Obama in that comparison is that, despite the fact the current president has been running against Dubya since 2007—and that’s a LONG time—Obama has embraced Bush’s policies, and Bush’s dishonesty, and maybe even amped up the perpetrations of these, as Joe Scarborough said yesterday, to “11”.
For one thing, Obama has been caught in a plain, bold, and outrageous lie, concerning the impact of Obamacare. On numerous occasions Obama asserted some form of the following to concerned voters regarding any fear they might have that Obamacare might do something bad to them, like cause their insurance policy to be canceled:
“If you like your [health insurance] plan you can keep it and you don’t have to change a thing due to the health care law.”
That is what the White House website says right here.
There doesn’t seem to be anything very ambiguous about “you don’t have to change a thing”. It is a clear assurance Obama made to the American people, that Obamacare would cause no harm to them, but would only serve to help them.
The problem is, the facts are showing, more and more, the President was lying to the American people.
