Mr. President, Thou Dost Protest Too Much

President Obama said he didn't know about the seemingly anti-American rantings of his former pastor, Reverend Jeremiah Wright. The President had attended Wright's church for nearly twenty years, averaging (by his own admission) one visit every other week - an approximate 520 visits across that period of time. He and his wife Michelle were married by Wright, and both of their daughters were Baptized by the Reverend. Yet President Obama claims he never heard such statements made by Wright.

President Obama said he didn't know about the shady financial dealings of Antoin "Tony" Rezko, the political fundraiser, restaurateur, and real estate developer from Chicago who arranged a "special" deal for the Obama family, so that they might by part of the plot of land they own in Hyde Park for just pennies on the dollar.

President Obama said he didn't know about William Ayers' history in The Weather Underground, a 1960's group found guilty on more than one occasion of domestic terrorism. Granted, Ayers himself was never found guilty (although his wife Bernadine Dohrn was), but he was at one time quoted "Guilty as Hell, Free as a Bird - America is a great country."

President Obama said he didn't know about the radical statements made by Rashid Khalidi, former Press Director for the Palestinian Liberation Organization.

So when President Obama said on Sunday in an interview with George Stephanopoulos that the ACORN story, including the votes in both the House and Senate to cut off funding, was something he's not really followed closely... and the fact that he claims he was not even aware that ACORN is getting "a whole lot of Federal money" - should we believe him?

Dear Leader is a very accomplished liar. He is a dangerous buffoon who has an agenda that is not in keeping with the best interests of Americans. I fall short of calling him a traitor for now, but he's knocking at the door.

j summ said...

oh, come come we all know that his links to all these people/organizations are tenuous at best. just ask him he'll tell you.

Soloman said...

LL - I fully agree about his agenda. The sad thing is some actually think his redistributive policies and anti-national security stance will benefit them.

In the short term, perhaps it looks appetizing, but in the long run, it's rotten to the core.

Soloman said...

j summ - that's the beautiful thing - this guy just keeps talking, and the truth just keeps coming to the surface.

BHO tells the best lies EVA!!!

Sorry...had a Kanye moment.

Amusing Bunni said...

Obama is a glib liar, and most likely a sociopath. But, I can tell he is lying about this. Every time one of his shady associations is brought up, he "didn't know, wasn't aware, forgot, the dog ate his homework", whatever.

We all can tell when Obugger is lying.....when he opens his mouth. I'm sick of his ugly mug defiling my TV whenever I turn it on.

Candle said...

What's amazing is that its an obvious lie, considering how he overanalyzes his image so much, and this directly tarnishes his image (the reason why its a big story at all), and yet the NEXT story isn't about how he's outright lying to people on TV. Its an obvious lie. Its a calculated lie. Its a big fat lie with sugar on top. I don't even think that's real sugar. So where's the so-called 'press'? Oh ya - that'd be us...

tammy said...

Liar, liar, pants on fire. I'm like Bunni, sick of seeing him on my TV. Just more blah, blah, blah, every single day. It was actually kind of nice to be away from the TV and news for a few days. Almost made me want to go hide up in the mountains and never come back.

Soloman said...

B&G - you're excused.. won't even call you a jackass...

Soloman said...

Bunni - almost 4 times the number of interivews by this time as compared to Clinton and Bush.

Thew narcissistic ego needs feeding...

Soloman said...

Candle - that must be saccharin, as opposed to equal or splenda. Way bad for ya.

and the press - long since died, it appears...

Soloman said...

Tammy - gotta admit, in a way I'm jealous 'cause a week away would be paradise.

Then again, I'm such a politics geek I'd get the shakes and have to have a radio or something.

One Ticked Chick said...

Looks like the "smartest president" we've ever had keeps proving himself to be dumb and dumber.

Soloman said...

Ticked Chick... he certainly has trouble when the truth is put in front of him, doesn't he?

runninbear said...

Is there no end to the lies that this man can tell? it's like that old saying "You can tell he's lying ?because his lips are moving?
Where's that brith certifcate ? Now I think we all need to ask ,nay force him to prove he's who he claims to be?

Soloman said...

Hi runninbear.. thanks for stopping by.

Honestly, I don't think everything Obama says is a lie, I just think there's more truth to him through his associations and questionable past than he's ever admitted.

And I'm not a birther, and honestly don't care for that subject. We have more important debates in my opinion than something that honestly will only make things worse - because if he were ever found to not be legal, he and Biden are out, and Nancy Pelosi is suddenly president.

No thank you...
