When is the Truth a Lie?

When Harry Reid says so! No, really. Using today’s standards it’s a wonder any conversations, and subsequent actions, take place.

We have heard some of these over and over again. They speak it like it’s a fact, but it isn’t. Stay with me for a moment.

“You can keep your doctor”“families will save about $2400.00 a year”illegal aliens (non-documented immigrants brought to the U.S. against their will) will not be given free healthcare“it won’t add one dime to the national deficit”“for the price of your cell phone bill a young person will be able to get health care”, and lastly, none of the so-called “loss of insurance” was due to Obamacare. They are all lies.

Some of the lesser-known and rarely remembered lies…

If we have not gotten our troops out by the time I am president, it is the first thing I will do. I will get our troops home, we will end this war. You can take that to the bank.” Which bank? Apparently I don’t know what bank to go to!

In candidate Obama’s original campaign, he promised to “eliminate entirely” income tax for seniors making less than $50,000. Yet another blatant lie, right to your face.

“My father served in World War II.” That’s what Obama said in one of many campaign speeches. Wasn’t he the communist, Kenyan father that was 9 years old when the war ended? Hmmm? Obama was probably referring to his grandfather who actually did serve. But could the candidate, who wrote “Dreams of My Father,” have been trying to boost the image of his communist father knowing how most people never look into the facts?

“The public will have 5 days to look at every bill that lands on my desk” YUP! And he’ll still love you in the morning! I think he meant 5 seconds with no prior notification!

And how about the one where he repeatedly guaranteed to make government open and transparent? Ahhh, he must have meant via the NSA? And now the press is banned from many meetings, usually open to media. They get pictures, notes, and official statements handed to them instead of being able to attend, witness, observe, and take them.

President Obama also said:

He would make it “impossible” for Congressmen to slip in pork barrel projects. Like the extra $4 billion slipped into Hurricane Sandy relief that had nothing to do with Sandy releif?

Meetings where laws are written will be more open to the public. Like the MANY negotiations that were off limits to Republicans?

“No more secrecy”. NSA, NSA, NSA, NSA, NSA!

You’ll know what’s in it! Unless of course you read it. At which time you will be totally confused because it won’t match anything you were told the bill was originally about. Confused? Good, so am I.

“We will put every pork barrel project online.” They must be posted on the back side of the website.

Soon after Obama took office, he pledged that his administrated would cut the deficit in half. We’re still waiting on that one. Maybe he said it backwards and meant he would increase it more than half?

The border fence is “basically complete.” Apparently, its only 5% complete. Didn’t we allocate “muchos dolares” to this? He went on to say, we now have more boots on the ground on the southwest border than at any time in our history. The Border Patrol has 20,000 agents – more than twice as many as there were in 2004.” It’s true, however, he forgot to say this build up began under Bush.

He also said, “the wall is complete.” The GAO, Congress’s investigative arm, reported that only 32 miles of the double layer fencing was completed as of 2009. Mr. Obama only built a little more than 4 miles, why bother?

“We got back every dime we used to rescue the banks, with interest.” The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) using numbers from Obama’s own Office of Management and Budget has a different viewpoint. General Motors still owes approximately $15 billion, Chrysler owes $1.3 billion, CIT group owes over $2 billion, and an estimated 25 other banks totaling approximately $30 billion. If money is “owed” we didn’t get “every dime” back! Why lie about it?
