Is President Obama a Pathological Liar?

by lizard

Over at Counterpunch, David Swanson documents 45 lies featured in president Obama’s UN speech.

As Democrats got all apoplectic over the vacuous antics of Ted Cruz, their guy was on the global stage lying his ass off.

Now, it’s an established fact that the necessary characteristics of a politician includes the capacity for deceit, but Obama does it on an impressively brazen level when he says things like “together we have worked to end a decade of war” and “we have limited the use of drones.


It’s not like there’s much credibility left for Obama to destroy. But the sheer audacity of his UN performance may in fact bolster the credible threat of US force in the eyes of the world’s population, because it shows how totally unhinged America has become, to be able to just take this level of deceit in stride, like it doesn’t matter.

Well, it does matter, so take a few minutes from Clown Cruz coverage, and read the list of lies that comprises the slick surface of America’s global PR. It’s astounding.

    He lies about as well as the fat lady sings.

      “Strategic ambiguity”

      Now that’s about as obtuse of a euphemism for lying as I’ve ever heard. Obama might as well just keep his mouth shut as resort to that sort of oratory. It pretty much alienates much of what’s left among his dem supporters — except for folks like you that think it makes him a smart politician.

      Of course, when the man at the top resorts to strategic ambiguities when he speaks, he leads the way for his underlings like his chief spook to speak “least untruths” to Congressional committees.

      There’s absolutely not a shred of integrity left among the political class.

    “Imagine reading the Presidential Daily Briefing for five years then listening to some bloggers bloviating in Montana.”

    I’d rather listen to bloggers bloviate than get brainwashed:

    What’s Obama getting from Panetta? Huh???
