Is Barack Obama a pathological Liar? Investor’s Business Daily seems to think so. Here’s their list modified in part by our editors:
Lie No. 1: Obama has repeatedly claimed his white grandfather, Stanley Dunham, “fought in Patton’s army,” when in actuality he was a clerk, seeing no combat in WWII.
Lie No. 2: Obama claimed Grandpa Dunham, a communist sympathizer, signed up for duty “the day after Pearl Harbor,” when in fact he waited six months.
Lie No. 3: Obama claimed his father “fought when he got back to Kenya against tribalism and nepotism, but ultimately was blackballed from the government,” when in fact he fought against capitalism and lost his job when he advocated communism.
Lie No. 4: Obama has claimed his late mother’s health insurer refused “to pay for her treatment” for cancer while citing a “pre-existing condition,” when in reality Cigna paid all her hospital bills and never denied payment.
Lie No. 5: Obama claimed he and a black high school friend named “Ray” were ostracized in Honolulu, when in fact the friend, Keith (KAH-koo-GAH-wah) Kakugawa, was half-Japanese, and neither of them experienced discrimination.
Lie No. 6: Obama claimed the father of his Indonesian stepfather was killed by Dutch soldiers while fighting for Indonesian independence, when in fact the story turns out to be “a concocted myth in almost all respects,” Maraniss found.
Lie No. 7: Obama claimed his parents decided to marry in the excitement of the Selma civil-rights march of 1965 — and that he personally has “a claim on Selma” — when in fact they were married several years earlier.
Lie No. 8: Obama claimed his father got to study in the U.S. thanks to JFK’s efforts to bring “young Africans over to America,” when in fact the Kenyan airlift his father participated in occurred in 1959, the prior decade, under President Eisenhower. I guess Obama didn’t like Ike.
Lie No. 9: Obama submitted a phony bio to his book publicist claiming he was “born in Kenya.” Well, now that I think about it, maybe he wasn’t laying on this one, but that would mean he’s lying now about not being from Kenya. Obviously both can’t be true.
Lie No. 10: Obama denied being a member of the socialist New Party, when a member roster of the Chicago chapter of the party lists him joining on Jan. 11, 1996.
Lie No. 11: Obama claimed he had only a passing acquaintance with Weather Underground terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, when in fact they held a fundraiser for their Hyde Park neighbor in their living room, and years later, while Obama served in the U.S. Senate, hosted a barbecue for him in their backyard.
Lie No. 12: Obama claimed he never heard Rev. Jeremiah Wright spew anti-American rants while sitting in his Rev. Wright’s church pews for 20 years. We’re not talking 20 minutes or even 20 weeks or 20 months, but for 20 whole years. It’s inconceivable to believe Obama could sleep through 20 years worth of screaming ranting sermons by Jeremiah Wright. In fact, Barack Obama was moved to tears hearing Wright condemn “white folks” and the U.S. for bombing other countries and even named his second book after the sermon. And the whoppers continue with:
Lie No. 13: Obama claimed he got in a “big fight” with old white flame Genevieve Cook, who after seeing a black play asked “Why black people were so angry all the time,” when in fact she neither saw the play nor made the remark.
Sadly, many of those supporters are true believers in liberal causes, but they no longer believe “The One” who they once believed would be their champion to take them to the Promised Land. They voted for hope. They voted for change. They felt that tingling feeling running up their legs. They truly believed. And now they feel truly betrayed.
