Well documented false statements made by our Great Leader

These Obama false statements have been documented by PolitiFact. Some may already be listed elsewhere on this site simply because there are so many and our Great Leader shows no signs of slowing down. It is hard to keep up. (These range from 2008 to recent.)

Obama false statements compiled by PolitiFact.

  1. “We have doubled the distance our cars will go on a gallon of gas.” False (Where, exactly, did you Obama False Statementshere that one, Mr. President?)
  2. “Throughout, we have kept Congress fully informed of our efforts” to create a legal framework on counter-terrorism. False (You forgot to tell the Members of Congress.)
  3. “If the House of Representatives fails to extend the middle-class tax cuts, 400,000 middle-class Rhode Island families will see their federal income taxes increase.” False (Someone should tell him the difference between households and families.)
  4. Says Mitt Romney “called the Arizona law a model for the nation.” False (One more widely spread “misquote.”
  5. “Under Gov. Romney’s definition … Donald Trump is a small business.” False (Pure fabrication. There never was any such Romney definition.)
  6. Because of Obamacare, “over the last two years, health care premiums have gone up — it’s true — but they’ve gone up slower than any time in the last 50 years.” False (It had nothing to do with Obamacare and you know it, Mr. President. Or you should know it.)
  7. “Over the last four years, the deficit has gone up, but 90 percent of that is as a consequence of” President George W. Bush’s policies and the recession. False (You continue to lie about George W. Bush. Shame on you.) See Obama’s Biggest Lie.
  8. “Fast and Furious” began under the Bush administration. False (It was created in 2009 and guess what? You were president.)
  9. Mitt Romney “says the Arizona immigration law should be a model for the nation.” False (You just can’t help it, can you?)
  10. Says Mitt Romney would deny gay people the right to adopt children. False (Romney’s words say otherwise.)
  11. “The only time government employment has gone down during a recession has been under me.” False (It actually went down lower during a recession Reagan inherited from Carter. But then you often take credit for things you never did.)
  12. “Under the Romney/Ryan budget, interest rates on federal student loans would be allowed to double.” False (You either never read the Romney/Ryan budget or you are simply lying again.)
  13. If the Supreme Court throws out the federal health care law, it “would be an unprecedented, extraordinary step of overturning a law that was passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected Congress.” False (It was passed by a slim majority in a corrupt process. Also, it is not unprecedented for the Supreme Court to overturn a law passed by Congress.)
  14. “For the first time since 1990, American manufacturers are creating new jobs.” False (Not true. Please stop making stuff up.)
  15. “Preventive care … saves money, for families, for businesses, for government, for everybody.” False (Wrong in 2009, and wrong today)
  16. “Thirty million Americans, including a lot of people in Florida, are going to be able to get healthcare next year because of that law.” False (Only in your dreams can it be true.)
  17. “I made a bunch of these promises during the campaign. … We’ve got about 60 percent done in three years.” False (See Obama Broken Promises.)
  18. Under President Barack Obama, the United States has “doubled our exports.” False (Not even close to the truth.)
  19. The president’s proposed budget “will help reduce the deficit by $400 billion over the next decade to the lowest level since Dwight Eisenhower was president.” False (Whew! He has no shame.)
  20. Under the White House’s budget proposal, “we will not be adding more to the national debt” by the middle of the decade. False (He forgot to tell you about the growing interest on the debt. It is huge!)
  21. Twelve judges have thrown out legal challenges to the health care law because they rejected “the notion that the health care law was unconstitutional.” False (The truth? Two to two on judges’ decisions on constitutionality. Big difference.)
  22. “I didn’t raise taxes once.” False (Of course you did. If we had a few real journalists, you couldn’t keep getting away with all these lies.)
  23. When President Franklin D. Roosevelt started Social Security, “it only affected widows and orphans,” and when Medicare began, “it was a small program.” False (An itsy-bitsy grain of truth here. But the lie is in the intent and he lied once again.)
  24. The Bush administration had been “giving (auto companies) billions of dollars and just asking nothing in return.” False (Call in the shrinks. Our president cannot stop lying.)
  25. “The vast majority of the money I got was from small donors all across the country.” False (Big donors bankrolled much of Obama’s campaign.)
  26. “We’ve excluded lobbyists from policy-making jobs.” False (Except for the ones in policy-making jobs.)
  27. When Obama was interviewed by American reporters in Asia, “Not one of them asked me about Asia. Not one of them asked me about the economy.” False (Except for the ones that asked you.)
  28. Insurers delayed an Illinois man’s treatment, “and he died because of it.” False (Hmm, I guess you forgot to tell the man to die, Mr. President, because the insurer’s decision was reversed and man lived three more years.)
  29. Health reform will “give every American the same opportunity” to buy health insurance the way members of Congress do. False (I realize that none of you phonies have read the bill but couldn’t you just for once stop lying? You are really setting a bad example for our children. You know, the same children who you have burdened with massive debt.)
  30. Preventive care “saves money.” False (Covering preventive care for everyone is a net cost.)
  31. (No earmarks in spending bill) False (They are even there in your dreams.)
  32. “If we went back to the obesity rates that existed back in the 1980s, the Medicare system over several years could save as much as a trillion dollars.” False (Wrong, wrong, wrong … and still wrong!)
  33. “I have not said that I was a single-payer supporter.” False (Oh yes you did and it’s on YouTube.)
  34. Stimulus tax cuts “began showing up in paychecks of 4.8 million Indiana households about three months ago.” False (How come the 4.8 million Indiana households didn’t notice?)
  35. Health insurance companies are “making record profits, right now.” False (They’re making profits like they should, but not record profits like you would have us believe.)
  36. “We import more oil today than ever before.” False (He said this on July 6, 2009 when oil imports were actually down.)
  37. “There is no disagreement that we need action by our government, a recovery plan that will help to jump-start the economy.” False (There is a lot of disagreement. At least half the country want the government to get out of the way so the private sector can rebuild our economy.)
  38. “Senator McCain would pay for part of his (health care) plan by making drastic cuts in Medicare — $882-billion worth.” False (Which one of your lackeys told you that, Mr. President? McCain never said it. Later, Obama and the Democrats actually did cut over $500 billion out of Medicare. Phony is as phony does.)
  39. “The centerpiece of Senator McCain’s education policy is to increase the voucher program in D.C. by 2,000 slots.” False (Do you have a secret “Tzar of Lies” or what? Or do you make the lies up all by yourself? It’s scary and the media should call you on it.)
  40. Under John McCain’s health care plan, people get a $5,000 tax credit to buy a $12,000 health care policy, and “that’s a loss for you.” False (A major distortion on McCain’s policy.)
  41. John McCain accused Barack Obama “of letting infants die.” False (Obama ad is wrong about McCain abortion charge. However the truth is that Senator Obama voted multiple times to defeat a bill that would have saved the lives of babies born alive in botched abortions.)
  42. “Oil companies …currently have 68-million acres that they’re not using.” False (Unused does not mean they are being ignored.)
  43. McCain “has opposed stem cell research.” False (Obama ad is misleading and it distorts McCain’s stem cell position.)
  44. “But if my opponent had his way, the millions of Floridians who rely on it would’ve had their Social Security tied up in the stock market this week.” False (Where did you get that idea, Mr. Obama? It wasn’t from John McCain.)
  45. “The fact is that although we have had a president who is opposed to abortion over the last eight years, abortions have not gone down.” False (I know you Liberals hate real facts, but the fact is, they went down under George W. Bush.)
  46. Oil companies “haven’t touched” 68 million acres where they already have rights to drill. False (68 million acres isn’t going untouched. You keep on making this stuff up and I’ll do my best to expose you.)
  47. Fully inflating tires is “a step that every expert says would absolutely reduce our oil consumption by 3 to 4 percent.” False (Not on this planet but there are millions of suckers who believe whatever you say, and that is why you just keep making this stuff up. I was taught to call it lying. How about you?)
  48. John McCain refuses to support a new bipartisan energy bill “because it would take away tax breaks from oil companies like Exxon Mobil.” False (McCain has not commented on the bill at all.)
  49. The U.S. government spends less on energy innovation “than the pet food industry invests in its own products.” False (Pure baloney! What we should spend research money on is how stop our leaders from lying to us.)
  50. “Our National Guard, as we saw in the Midwest flooding, can’t function as effectively as it could. I was talking to National Guard representatives. Fifteen of their 17 helicopters in this region were overseas during the flooding.” False (There was no shortage of helicopters for floods. I really wish you would resign. It is truly awful having such a grossly dishonest president of my country.)
  51. “I think we came down here (to Florida) one time … but we weren’t actively fund-raising here.” False (Obama held fundraisers.)
  52. “I have never said that I don’t wear flag pins or refuse to wear flag pins.” False (Obama contradicts his previously stated pin philosophy.)
  53. “We are bogged down in a war that John McCain now suggests might go on for another 100 years.” False
  54. “Hillary Clinton believed NAFTA was a ‘boon’ to our economy.” False (She never said it.)
  55. “As has been noted by many observers, including Bill Clinton’s former secretary of labor, my plan does more than anybody to reduce costs.” False (Experts rate Dem plans about the same.)
  56. “She said, you know, ‘I voted for it, but I hoped it wouldn’t pass.’ That was a quote on live TV.” False (That’s not the actual quote.)
  57. Americans “have never paid more for gas at the pump.” False (He needs a fill-up on statistics.)
  58. “I know that Hillary on occasion has said — just last year said this (NAFTA) was a boon to the economy.” False (There is no evidence she said that.)
  59. “Gas prices have never been higher, and Exxon Mobil’s profits have never been higher.” False (He’s a year too late on this energy claim.)
  60. “If we went back to the obesity rates that existed in 1980, that would save the Medicare system a trillion dollars.” False (He just makes it up.)
  61. “John wasn’t this raging populist four years ago” when he ran for president. False (Edwards tagged ‘populist’ early on.)
  62. “Right now, an employer has more of a chance of getting hit by lightning than be prosecuted for hiring an undocumented worker. That has to change.” False (Lightning strikes, but not like the feds.)
  63. If African-Americans vote their percentage of the population in 2008, “Mississippi is suddenly a Democratic state.” False (By itself, black voter increase does not flip Mississippi & mdash; or the South.)

  1. Why don’t you include the date and place of the quotes you list? It would certainly help in pinning him to the lie/misstatement and offer proof to Liberals claiming that your findings are racist fabrications.

What do you think? We want to know.
