Obama: Liar In ChiefIt’s not pretty.

The following are considered to be dishonest statements made by Barack Obama. Verification is by:

  • One or more reliable news agencies or credible authorities.
  • Videos or transcripts.
  • Logic: An exclusion of fact that clearly changes the meaning or the intent of the original.

153 160 173 Documented Obama Lies

Stay tuned, it’s hard to keep up with them.

Some lies date back to the 2008 Presidential Campaign between Obama and McCain. Lying is nothing new for Barack Obama. We should all celebrate the occasion of our first Black president. Unfortunately, while we had countless well-qualified black men and women from which to choose, we chose the wrong one.

Another update (Added on February 19, 2014).

The truth is (You do remember what truth is?) I am tired of doing this so do not think this is a complete list of our President’s dishonesty. He lies so often that I choose not to spend more time on this topic. Mr. Obama is not only the most dishonest president in U.S. history, he is the most dishonest person I have ever witnessed. I have not an ounce of doubt that if President Barack Obama were white, he would have been impeached a long time ago. We will not be a truly non-racist society until we neither protect nor condemn a person based on the color of their skin.

NOTE: rates statements as True, Mostly True, Half True, Mostly False, False, Pants On Fire.

13 More Obama lies

4 are simply false and 9 are “Pants On Fire” lies. All are from PolitiFact.

(Some are from the 2012 Presidential Campaign that I failed to list back then.)

  1. “What we said was, you can keep (your plan) if it hasn’t changed since the law passed.” – PANTS ON FIRE! (Of all the false statements documented by PolitiFact that were made by anyone in 2013, this one made by President Obama was chosen as the “Lie of The Year.” The Washington Post, a Liberal-leaning newspaper, also chose it as their Lie of The Year.)

    Watch President Obama make this false statement on almost 40 separate occasions.

7 more Obama lies (Add to the original 153 below.)

  5. 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.” Whew! That’s a whopper.
