Attempting to select THE ten worst lies told by a pathological liar like Barack Obama is a difficult task. There are so many lies that it is hard to know where to start – a good case can be made for so many of his lies as top ten material. For this reason there is no claim here to a TOP ten of his lies, ten of his most egregious ones.
During his last State of the Union speech Barack Obama claimed “American oil production is the highest that it’s been in eight years.” In fact the Congressional Research Service reports that 96% of the increase comes from oil fields out of Obama’s control. By contrast the production from federally owned oil fields he does control has dropped by 275,000 barrels a day. It is worth noting that privately owned fields have increased by 395,000 barrels a day.
Obama has told the world there has never been a better friend of Israel’s in the White House.
Sunday, an Israeli newspaper reports that senior Obama Administration officials have told Tehran that Barack Obama does not intend to join Israel in any attack on Iran’s nuclear installations. In May 2011 Obama asked G8 member nations to fund the Arab Spring counties who are clearly on their way to planning an all-out attack on Israel.
In May 2011 Obama said the fence between America and Mexico was “basically complete” yet the Department of Homeland Security admits just 36.3 miles or 5% of the border is fenced.
Obama lied and said abortions would not be publicly funded under Obamacare.
Despite Obama’s empty lies about no public funding for abortions a March 2012 edict from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) unequivocally ruled Obamacare will use our tax dollars to fund abortion.
In April 2009 Obama claimed he “saved or created over 150,000 jobs.”
In an odd burst of veracity his friends at the AP called him on this lie pointing out that at that point, since Obama came to office, the United States lost more than 1.2 million jobs as per his own Bureau of Labor Statistics. The report continued by pointing out that: any jobs “saved or created” by Obama’s stimulus bill were “dwarfed by the number of recent job losses.”
The truth is that he has given us more new debt than all previous presidents combined.
Remember Obama telling us there would be no earmarks in his 2009 stimulus package? He lied. The bill had over 9,000 earmarks in it and of course it failed to deliver even a small improvement for our economy.
Obama told us that without his 2009 stimulus package unemployment would grow to 8.5%. We got the stimulus and it gave us 44 straight months of unemployment at or above 8%.
Obama lied about his position on Gay “marriage” multiple times moving from “I am not one to support Gay marriage” to his “evolution” in May. That was all a convenient pack of lies.
