Why do Obamas Have to Lie?

-By Warner Todd Huston

Barack “Hessayin” Obama lied repeatedly throughout the campaign and has not stopped as president. And now, even Michelle “Never Been Proud of My Country” Obama is joining him at the liar’s rostrum.

Our favorite watchdog Michelle Malkin caught this little lie in The First Lady’s Olympics pleading.

Some of my best memories are sitting on my dad’s lap, cheering on Olga and Nadia, Carl Lewis, and others for their brilliance and perfection.


If Michelle Obama was sitting on her father’s lap watching Carl Lewis perform in the Olympics she would have been a grown woman because Lewis was first in the Olympics in 1984 when Michelle was 20-years-old.

In fact, Carl Lewis wasn’t even born until 1961 so he was a little kid at the same time as Michelle Obama, who was born in 1964.

Why do these people have to lie so blatantly like this?

As to the liar in chief, his latest constant lie is the claim that 700,000 a month have lost their jobs since the end of Bush’s term. Maggie Thurber of Thurber’s Thoughts has been following this lie, too. Maggie notes that Obama keeps using this false number even though the total job loses for both September and October of 2008 were 792,000, so this 700,000 a month lost during Bush’s last year is a lie. Not only that but even in his own presidency we lost 598,000 in January of 2009 and 651,000 in February.

Clearly we have not been losing “an average” of 700,000 jobs every month “since last winter” as Obama keeps claiming.

And yet, do we see the Old Media calling these liars on the carpet?
