Is President Obama A Pathological Liar?

Barack Obama

The most frightening aspect of this president may not be his radical ideology but his rank dishonesty in selling that ideology. Now he’s been caught lying about family racism.

In “Dreams from My Father,” his 1995 memoir, Obama used the story of his paternal grandfather’s imprisonment and torture at the hands of British colonists in Kenya as an example of white cruelty. He claimed Hussein Onyango Obama was unjustly detained for six months before being released a crippled, lice-ridden “old man.”

In fact, none of it is true, according to Washington Post editor and biographer David Maraniss, who traveled to Kenya to investigate the tale. His grandfather was not detained or beaten by his “white rulers,” as Obama, writing as a 34-year-old lawyer, claimed.

This is only the latest example of a growing body of fabrications, embellishments and outright lies told by this president, who has a real and possibly pathological problem with the truth.

Stacked up, his whoppers would make even Bill Clinton blush.

Full story.

    Would you believe that his grandfather was turned into a newt (Gingrich)?

    But seriously folks, why would he tell such an obvious lie? The more I hear, the more I agree that he and Princess Running Joke Liz Warren are similar. These people both reached positions that their talents don’t seem to have earned, and both have repeatedly lied about their families and their past, for both informal and formal personal gain.

    Yes, Obama is a pathological liar. When he was campaigning he was whatever you wanted him to be. He said whatever he thought his audience wanted to hear. Since then he’s just continued lying. Only now the stakes are a lot higher. Candidate Obama’s lies were bad, but as President he has the power to wreck the country.

    Obama reminds me of some people who appear on Judge Judy. They feel that if they just keep talking, or keep telling their story, or whatever that the judge will just have to see it their way. Obama’s like that. He won’t answer direct questions. He won’t answer questions directly either. He just tells you what he wants to say and it’s up to you to believe him or else you’re a you know what – a a a RACIST.

    Take a look at Romney’s record if you want to see evidence of a truly world-class liar. He’s going to be a laughing stock before the summer’s out if he keeps it up.

    Thing is, Romney lies about things that actually make a difference to people, not some ginned up controversy about Obama’s family stories about his ancestry.

    Sounds to me like a great debate zinger

    “Mr. President, your books are chock full of lies, your campaign was and is chock full of lies and ultimately your administration armed narco-terrorists and killed people. When will you begin being honest with the American people?

    Oh, short answer no, he is a habitual liar. Just observe who raised him, tutored and mentored him. I believe his true descent is from the Father of all lies…
