Does Obama ever tell the truth about anything?

Allbiz - PWCM - JLA 2011/04/14 02:28:00
Barack Obama pledged that
if elected he would make it a goal to have much more transparency in his
administration than those Presidents who preceded him. There was going
to be Change. The transparency would bring about ‘accountability" in his
words.

One of the policies he trumpeted would be making
available to the public the White House visitor logs so we can know who
visited with the President, the Vice-President and key officials of his
team. Only later did we discover -- through outside investigator's

efforts -- that these key officials were circumventing the new "policy"
by meeting with lobbyists across the street from the White House at Caribou Coffee
as well as other spots so that their meetings would not show up on the logs.

Now, it turns out that the vaunted White House logs themselves are filled with "inaccuracies."

Here
is a reminder of yet another Obama campaign promise unfulfilled. His
administration would be the most transparent in history, Obama vowed,
but a new study by the Center for Public Integrity finds
that the White House has been omitting names and details from the visitors' log.

"Five junior staff aides together received more than 4,440 visits," Politico reported
"By contrast, then-chief of staff Rahm Emanuel famed for his workaholic schedule, is listed as having fewer than 500 visits."

Meanwhile,
Obama's personal assistant Reggie Love is recorded as receiving nearly
300 visits in the West Wing-including celebrities and friends of
Obama's.


The
study also found that less than 1 percent of roughly 500,000 visits
during Obama's first eight months in office have been disclosed.
The
main problem with the shoddy visitors' log is that it obscures key
details of meetings with relevant political figures. AFL-CIO head
Richard Trumka, Obama campaign bundlers, lobbyists, and drug company
CEOs regularly visit the White House. But the logs often don't explain
the purpose of the visits, or who the meetings were with.


The
Obama administration claims that it has "taken unprecedented steps to
increase transparency by releasing visitor records from the system each
month." But releasing the records matters very little if the information
is absent or clouded with inaccuracies.


Needless to say, debates over ObamaCare were not broadcast on C-Span
as was also promised. Bills were not posted on line for five days before they were voted upon to allow citizen comment and time for politicians to read.

    Yes...He once stated that he has big ears.

    Too bad he can't hear out of them...Even if he could, he wouldn't listen to America.

    He always lies. That way we can't tell the difference. And he always does the opposite o what he says. And if you call him on it you are called a racist. But we really don't know which blood is he problem. Bush was white and he sucked. Clinton sucked. Another Bush sucked and Carter sucked. Hell..the best Pres is a dead Pres cause you can buy stuff with 'em. So maybe Barack just isn't black enough. Or maybe he's just another Sock Puppet for the New World Order. A green sock cause he's too yellow to admit he's really red. Hey..what's with his scar?

    Obama will go down with that other politician who went down in history as another gutless wonder, Pilate, the Roman Governor of Judea, Israel! When Jesus was brought before him and was confronted with Jesus' innocence of the crimes brought against Him, all Pilate could say was, "What is truth?!" These are the same words that Obama says every day, not because he doesn't know, but because if he were honest, he doesn't care about truth, but about power! Words are simply a means to distract FROM the truth and to anesthetize the ignorant! Truth is for losers in his mind! Well, we'll see in November of 2012!

    No



    Obama the greatest liar and single worst President in the history of The United States of America.


    Barrack Obama in his own words, no embellishment necessary...


    1. Obama called for the closure of Gitmo while Bush was in the WH and later promised to do just that. Is GITMO closed today?







    2. Barrack Hussein Obama promised 5-days for the public to review any bill before signed into law. Did this come to pass?



    3. Obama promised not to enter into wars that were not a direct threat to The United States of America. How is Lybia a "direct threat" to the United States (or more to the point, how is Moammar Gadhafi?)

    4. How about not funding new programs without first cutting existing programs to fund new programs- has this been Barrack Hussein Obama's policy since he took office?"

    -see 1:20 and on-



    5. And just for fun, let's take a look at what Barrack Hussein Obama had to say about appointing lobbyist to his cabinet when he was campaigning for President...



    Versus the reality of his actions once he took office...

    Just saying ... must be a very stress-filled job just trying to keep track of all the lies that he's made ... (wonder if there's any record in some computer file? Or a Lie prompter .. so that each one that's told is indexed with date/time groups, cross referenced, booked in, notated, and then sent to the lawyers for safe-keeping)

    He told us he was going to transform America. I think this is about the only truth he has told and is sticking to, rather, sticking it to us.

    Has he EVER WROTE or TOLD THE TRUTH.

    It seems his entire life is a life of half-truths, taking advantage of the fact that he is allegedly half black and half white..

    He can not write the truth, he can not speak the truth... and I for one suspect that he DOES NOT KNOW what the truth is..

    Because his entire life is a collection of lies, hidden agendas, utilizing Affirmative Action and the Fact that he is BI-Racial to better himself at the expense of those more intelligent and better qualified for EVERY political job, semi-professional job he has earned a dollar from.

    In other words he is a first class liar with no sense of honor,dignity and any concern for America.

    Absolute-land isn't a realistic place to live. One side isn't always right and the other isn't always wrong. It is positions like this that push away moderates and independents, at least it has that effect on me.
