Obama just accused Republicans of lying. Wow.

(National SentinelHe Went There: During a campaign speech in Wisconsin Friday evening, former President Barack Obama lashed out at politicians — Republicans, specifically — for “just blatantly, repeatedly, baldly, shamelessly lying” about a range of issues ahead of next month’s elections.

Stumping for Democratic candidates including Sen. Tammy Baldwin, gubernatorial candidate Tony Evers, and others, No. 44 said the GOP was being particularly dishonest about — healthcare.

Not even kidding.

“Listen throughout human history, certainly throughout American history, politicians have exaggerated. They make promises that they may try to fulfill, but then it turns out to be harder than they expected,” Obama told the crowd assembled in Milwaukee. “They pump up the things that they did that are good.

“They downplay the things that they did that aren’t so good. They try to put a positive spin on things,” he continued. “But what we have not seen before, in our recent public life, at least, is politicians just blatantly, repeatedly, baldly, shamelessly lying.”

Oh really, Mr. Obama? Are you just joshing us or are you (gulp) actually serious?

Because we recall some big, ol’ whoppers you and your former administration told over and over and over and over again…on a whole range of issues, healthcare being just one of them.

You lied about Fast and Furious. You lied about Benghazi. You lied about your IRS not targeting conservative groups when it did. You lied about not lying.




Some lies stood out more than others, however, as The Daily Caller notes:

Obama spun news, evaded questions, contradicted himself and made false statements a number of times while he was in office.

In 2011, Obama claimed he “signed into law the biggest middle-class tax cut in history,” referring to the Making Work Pay provision in his stimulus package.

Obama’s calculation for his claim was based on “dubious math,” according to The Washington Post. Former-presidents John F. Kennedy and George W. Bush signed larger tax cuts into law.

When campaigning for the Affordable Care Act, Obama claimed, “If you like your health-care plan, you can keep it.”

After his bill passed, cancellation notices hit at least two million Americans’ mailboxes because of a short cutoff to bring existing plans in compliance with the new law, The Washington Post reported.

Terrorists attacked the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, on Sept. 11, 2012, killing four Americans including U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens. Obama and his administration downplayed the terrorist aspect of the attack in the immediate aftermath of the event, but the then-president later tried to spin his comments, saying, “the day after Benghazi happened, I acknowledged this was an act of terrorism.”

Obama referred vaguely to an “act of terror” immediately after the attack, but “over a period of two weeks, given three opportunities in interviews to affirmatively agree that the Benghazi attack was a terrorist attack, the president obfuscated or ducked the question,” The Washington Post reports.

Republicans are liars, Mr. Obama? Just. Wow.

8 Comments on Obama just accused Republicans of lying. Wow.

  1. I utterly, totally, completely, dislike this prick.

  2. Obama accuses Republicans of lying. That’s the classic definition of “Man bites dog” story.

  3. Wow! From the guy who said “If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor – PERIOD!”. And the “red line” in Syria about using poison gas?! and. and.. and… A case of the pot calling the kettle black!

  4. I guess I should feel sorry for this guy. He is going bonkers over Pres. Trump’s continuous successes against all odds. Poor baby.

  5. Obama floats. What would anyone expect from a man not born in America, tricked by his media into being trusted, muslim in hiding, and married to a cross dresser!

  6. CHANGE IS COMING TO AMERICA !! Uh huh, you rotten filthy traitorous scum !! We’re all in the current position we’re in because of your CHANGE !

  7. His lips are moving aren’t hey. Perhaps the biggest liar ever.

  8. Why do these lowlifes carry on about “Trump’s lies”? I hear it constantly. But, Donald Trump has delivered on everything he promised. Including the things that Barack jeered could never be done. He SNEERED at Trump’s idiocy. We believed DJT’s promises. Idiots, aided by media idiots, bar the way as POTUS works to deliver. Trump doesn’t let that stop him. He delivers. Where are the lies? When he calls it like it is, they yell, “lies”! Once his statements prove true, the press has moved on to yell about his next round of “lies”. His opponents conveniently remember the statements at the time they were made, but unproven. Later proven, but who cares? They are busy filling up bags and bags of “lies”. These dirty bastards think we forget what our eyes and ears saw and heard. We heard them deny Bengazi over and over … and we were stunned when later they swear they had said so all along. We should be accustomed to it. But they stun us every time they speak. Do they REALLYY think we are that stupid???? In closing, if you want to know what those thieves are really doing … just look at the crap they try to lay at Trump’s feet. THAT is what they are doing.

Have something to say?
