I’ve toyed with the idea of a Top Ten list of Obama’s Lies the last few days and it simply cannot be limited to 10, much like you can’t limit to 10 the number of corrupt members of Congress… or the number of Communists in Barry’s administration.
A walk down memory lane, perhaps?
"When there is a bill that ends up on my desk as President, you will have five days to look online and find out what's in it before I sign it."
"I will not sign a [healthcare reform] plan that adds one dime to our deficits -- either now or in the future. I will not sign it if it adds one dime to the deficit, now or in the future, period."
“The Recession is over.”
"Let me be clear: The United States government has no interest in running GM. We have no intention of running GM."
"Our [stimulus] plan will likely save or create three to four million jobs. 90 percent of these jobs will be created in the private sector."
“The (health care) reforms -- the reforms I'm proposing would not apply to those who are here illegally."
"If you make under $250,000, you will not see your taxes increase by a single dime – not your income taxes, not your payroll taxes, not your capital gains taxes. Nothing. Because the last thing we should do in this economy is raise taxes on the middle-class."
"The days of pork as policy are over."
“I have not said I am in favor of a single payer system.”
“There was something stirring across the country because of what happened in Selma, Alabama,” he said, “because some folks are willing to march across a bridge. So (my parents) got together (sic) and Barack Obama Jr. was born. So don’t tell me I don’t have a claim on Selma, Alabama. Don’t tell me I’m not coming home to Selma, Alabama”
Obama was born in 1961; the march in Selma occurred in 1965.
"(Editor’s shout-out: “got together” is a current euphemism for anonymous sex and/ or illegitimate births).
"William Ayers [the unrepentant terrorist] was only a guy in the neighborhood."
“Iran is just a tiny country and not a real threat.”
“I didn’t even know that ACORN was getting a whole lot of federal money...”
“The White House says the President is unaware of the Tea Parties and will hold his own event today.”
Obama recounts about a picture he ran across in Life magazine of a "black man who had tried to peel off his skin" in a failed effort to use chemicals to lighten it. Obama writes that "seeing that article was violent for me, an ambush attack."
The Tribune reported: "Yet no such Life issue exists, according to historians at the magazine. No such photos, no such article. When asked about the discrepancy, Obama said in a recent interview, 'It might have been an Ebony or it might have been ... who knows what it was?' (At the request of the Tribune, archivists at Ebony searched their catalogue of past articles, none of which matched what Obama recalled.)"
“I’ve always been a Christian; I have never practiced [Islam]”.
In his autobiography, “Dreams From My Father,” Obama mentions studying the Quran. He was enrolled in two Jakarta schools as a Muslim. His teacher Tine Hahiyary said that she remembered that he had studied “mengaji” (recitation of the Quran).”
Classmate Rony Amiris--“Barry was previously quite religious in Islam.”
Obama’s campaign statement—“…. Senator Obama has never been a Muslim, was not raised a Muslim, and is a committed Christian who attends the United Church of Christ in Chicago.” Later the Obama campaign corrected its previous statement: “Obama has never been a practicing Muslim”.
Later in the campaign-- "Let's not play games," Obama stated. "What I was suggesting – you're absolutely right that John McCain has not talked about my Muslim faith. And you're absolutely right that that has not come."
“Let me be exactly clear about what health care reform means to you. First of all, if you’ve got health insurance, you like your doctors, you like your plan, you can keep your doctor, you can keep your plan. Nobody is talking about taking that away from you.”
And mmmm, mmmm, mmmm, Barack Hussein Obama’s Number One Lie (so far) is:
"I, Barack Hussein Obama, do solemnly swear that I will execute the office of president of the United States faithfully, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the constitution of the United States."
