In his bitter words.
rofl... you all make Obama sound like the meanest, badest person in all the land. He gets no credit for foreign policy, despite successes. He gets no credit for leadership, despite trying to bring sides together, he gets no credit on the economy despite positve numbers from around six months into his administration onward (a reasonable amount of time for a president to get rolling.)
There are some who hate him simply because he's a Democrat. Some who hate him for being progressive/liberal. Some hate him for his skln colour, and some for all of these things. Obama is a centrist, I'm well left of him. For the record, I consider Carter, Ford, Clinton, GHWB, and Nixon to be centrists.
The right makes stuff up. It condemns its own ideas once Obama embraces them. The right is irrational. My gosh, I expect as a movement, the right will soon need rabies shots.
Another small problem--that piece on the "lies of Obama" is dodgy. The author don't provide verbatim quotes or verifiable sources for what Obama actually said; nor do he provide any links/proof to substantiate the so-called "truth". The very first statement says that "he now presses for passage of bills that include savage cuts in Medicare." Not quite true. More at http://swampland.time.com/2012/08/16/fact-check-obamacares-medicare-cuts/Next one. Obama promised 90% of the jobs would be in the private sector but they were not. Really? REALLY? I looked high and low but couldn't find any such commitment except at sites echoing the same unproved claim. Heck, even Reince Priebus didn't make that claim in his U.S. News piece on the five biggest failures of Obama's stimulus laws: http://www.usnews.com/opinion/articles/2012/02/17/the-five-biggest-failures-from-president-obamas-stimulus-lawPlodding along, we go to the next item: that Obama is on the record favoring a single payer system. Mebbe, mebbe not. http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2009/jul/16/barack-obama/obama-statements-single-payer-have-changed-bit/Anybody seeing a trend here? BTW, just for grins I googled some of the key phrases of that piece and son-of-a-gun it looks like the piece IN ITS ENTIRETY is on other anti-Obama websites. http://rense.com/general89/lies.htm; http://vocalminority.typepad.com/blog/election_2008/* So..... I'm thinking that this compilation of Obama's lies is the stuff of those stupid e-mails which are sent to the gullible in hopes that they'll think "if it's in print, it must be true". As per usual, the whole truth is MIA. Those "lies" are a conglomeration of some truth, some arrant whoppers, and a whole helluva lot of omission and misplaced context. IOW, not credible. Geez, you'd think that people would bother to vet this stuff before chowing down on it and/or serving it up for others. It's not really all that hard.....
*VM didn't even bother to give credit to FrontPage Mag for doing the deceiving for them.
