Back in 2009 my colleague, Archie Jones, and I wrote a book titled Born to Lie (still available at www.patriotdepot.com). The book chronicled Barack Obama’s broken promises and empty campaign pledges. By comparing what Obama said with what he actually did, we painted a picture of a president who is rarely even in the same zip code as the truth. Numerous issues have undermined the credibility of President Obama—all of them self-inflicted. But nothing has turned American’s off to this president more than his willingness to lie to them, both by commission and omission. Even as the mainstream media does everything in its power to shelter the president from his own dishonest propensities, Americans have caught on and, as a result, do not trust their president.
Small wonder. In spite of having his distortions, convenient omissions, and worm-worded statements pointed out and corrected repeatedly by such organizations as the Media Research Center, President Obama—protected by his leftwing comrades in the media—continues to look the camera in the eye and lie to the American people. His playing fast and loose with the truth is so dependable that TOWNHALL can dedicate a full page in its magazine every month to the president’s latest distortions.
This monthly column is called “Top Obamateurisms.” I commend this column to readers of Patriot Update. It makes for some interesting, if frustrating, reading. For example, TOWNHALL’s June 2012 edition of “Top Obamateurisms” chronicles the following statements by President Obama, statements that fall well short of the truth:
Archie Jones and I have contemplated writing a sequel to our book, Born to Lie. Unfortunately, neither of us can write fast enough to keep up with the President’s distortions. Instead, we will leave the chronicling of President Obama’s on-going aversion to the truth to the good folks at TOWNHALL. They have the benefit of being a monthly publication.
