Lying By Omission – The Latest Obama Campaign Tool

doofiegirl BTO-t- BCRA-F ~PWCM~ 2012/07/15 10:41:13
There are many kinds of lies- barefaced, minimization, white lies, contextual lies, and economy with the truth lies. Lying by omission is only one of over twenty-five kinds of lies; contextual lies economy truth lies lying omission twenty-five kinds lies Lies of omission are particularly offensive because they rely on the assumed ignorance of those who hear them. They are an insult to the intelligence and intuitiveness of most people because they depend on the hearer’s ignorance or distraction to have any effect at all. Telling lies of omission requires a great sense of timing as well. Politicians use the last days of a campaign to blast the lies across the campaign trail and hope that there is not enough time for the sycophants to research or uncover what Paul Harvey used to call ‘the rest of the story.’ Obama and the Dems are reporting jobs increases to the public in campaign stops and media. The latest figures from the Bureau of Labor Statistics indicated that 80,000 jobs had been created in June. This report has been heralded with great pomp and repeated by dozens of mainstream media sources. The latest push in the Obama campaign is the imaginary ‘class warfare’ struggle that was once sold to Russia and became what is now known as communism. OWS, and anyone feeling the slightest bit disenfranchised in America today, is likely to get onboard this roaring train created and fueled by Obama campaign strategists. The lie omitted is that the taxes the rich are not paying is infinitesimal compared to the taxes that will now fall on the middle class, courtesy of Obamacare. Omitted is the fact that Obamacare represents the single largest tax hike in America’s history. Obama has blamed George Bush, the Congress, and now the rich for destroying the economy and jobs; but he has carefully omitted the fact that the huge bloc of voters between the ages of 18 to 29 has had a 12.8% unemployment rate since he took office, and there is no relief in sight. This is the largest group of supporters he had in 2008. If not mentioning this fact works toward his re-election, you can bet that not a whisper will come forth from the Obama campaign from now until November.
From here to November sixth, it is what Obama does not say that we should be listening for the most.
It is said that lying to one’s self is a mark of insanity. Lying to those around you is a mark of instability, but lying to everyone is the mark of a politician.

    The reality is this man wouldn't know the truth if it bit his ass, he is all about smoke and mirrors. If his lips are moving he is lying, its in his DNA. What a sorry mess this poser turned out to be.

    WELCOME BACK DOOFIEGIRL! Growth does not come from a strong middle class -- a strong middle class is the result of growth. Lenin destroyed Russia with his class warfare, the Liar-in-Chief is trying to do the same.

    Lying is all this man we call president has ever done. He lied to get a free educ ation and now is hiding it.. another form of lying. He lied that he was born in the U.S. and had people make a fake B.C for him. He has pretty much lied all of his life. Says he's not Muslim, but is. Why do we have this horrid man in our White Hosue.. because he lied his way in.

    Time to take him out, america. Surely to God even the most fervant Obama bots have more honor than this!

    He is the Great Deceiver, The Anti Christian. A Muslim who Deceived the People of America by saying he was a Christian to get Elected and then Attacking the Christian Faith and betraying the American People with every Chance he Got. Revelations says the Beast will Come from the Sea, Barry comes from Hawaii he is the One spoke of in Revelations 13. The Anti Christ.

    Anyone with half a brain could see right through the lies.The thing I worry about is that this country has so many ppl that have less than half a brain, and will believe anything that POS in the White House says.

    To Obama, a helpful fact-like tale is any statistic or tale that can be twisted, presented without reliable context, or part of a lie told often enough to be taken as truth. Deceit and Deception are not codewords in the WH - they are Rules of the Road to Re-Election.

    He knows that most of his base voters are oblivious to the truth on numbers, statistics, and having to live the harsh reality of his policies. He can say anything he wants and they will take it as the gods truth. The truth would hurt him. He needs to avoid the truth.

    Do you really believe everything a politician says? Obama once said, "You should know better when politicians make promises." That about says it all about trusting him, period.
