The "Whopper-in-chief" has stuck his foot...
...in his mouth again. It's obvious to all that recognize him as the pathetic loser he is, the most over-his-head POTUS in history. But his toady fools will continue to make excuses for his fabrications, and the prevaricator he has always been. His entire life is founded on a lie that will eventually be known to all.
The Sequester might just show some of his minions how he's been trying to pull the wool over their eyes these past few weeks. In the meantime, we need those of us that KNOW where he's coming from, to keep reminding the fools of this nation about his phoniness and insincerity concerning doing anything to correct the problems we face in this country.
There is nothing sadder than the present day MSP and how they are being duped into their support for a puppet. Rather than putting their efforts into killing the fellow messinger, Woodward, you'd think one of those sycophants would realize they should do their journalistic mandate and check into the facts, rather than continue genuflecting in front of the messiah's mouthpiece, the 'spokes-kid' Carney.
Shocker: President Obama Lied About Pay Cuts For Janitors And Security Guards
Mar 2, 2013
“Starting tomorrow, everybody here, cleaning the floors at the Capitol. They’re going to have less pay,” said President Obama whilst fear mongering about the looming sequester cuts. “The janitors, the security guards. They just got a pay cut. They’ve got to figure out how to manage that. That’s real.”
Well, turns out it’s not real, according to the Architect of the Capitol who made it clear that no janitors, or security guards, would be getting pay cuts:
In other words, Obama was using figures from the Department of Things I Just Made Up.
Obama’s remarks continue the administration’s pattern of overstating the potential impact of the sequester, which we have explored this week. But this error is particularly bad–and nerve-wracking to the janitors and security guards who were misled by the president’s comments.
We originally thought this was maybe a Two Pinocchio rating, but in light of the AOC memo and the confirmation that security guards will not face a pay cut, nothing in Obama’s statement came close to being correct.
Did Presidents always lie this audaciously? Maybe they did, and in a previous age bereft of the sort of easy and swift access to information we enjoy today, they did and nobody knew about it. But perhaps the most important question is, were we always thing inured to lying?
To be sure, the word “lying” gets thrown around a lot in politics. One side is always accusing the other side of lying about something that is really just a matter of disagreement. In this instance, however, there isn’t room for debate. President Obama told an intentional lie, intended to mislead Americans into believing something that isn’t true.
President Obama pops off whoppers all the time, and they’re routinely fact-checked and found wanting, and yet there seems to be little concern from the populace. Or the media. That’s just a politician being a politician, we seem to feel. They lie. That’s what they do.
That cynicism isn’t serving us well, I think.
