You Lie, Mr. President!
By: Jeff Lukens
Vladimir Lenin once said, “A lie told often enough becomes the truth.” In the electronic age, the left has hammered this theory home harder than ‘ol Vlad could have ever imagined.
Every day for two weeks, Team Obama and their media cronies repeatedly told the story of the anti-Muslim video inciting a riot in Benghazi causing the death of our Libyan ambassador and three other Americans. The problem for the administration was that no amount of spin could alter the facts known by millions of people. What became self-evident to everyone was that the Administration, from Barack Obama on down, was lying. People had to wonder if it couldn’t tell the truth about this matter, what else was it lying about?
In 2008, people voted with their hearts that America could be more inclusive than it had ever been. Many voted for Obama because they wanted to be able to vote for the first black man elected to the presidency. While this inclusiveness is an honorable American attribute, Barack Obama has been playing us all for fools ever since.
Obama promised to be a post-racial president. He promised to be a uniter, not a divider. He promised to cut the deficit and then he doubled it. He rammed through a healthcare bill that took over one-sixth of the economy, without a single Republican vote in Congress. And now, he is up for reelection on the worst presidential record imaginable.
Obama’s Libya debacle includes not only four dead people, but an horrendously failed Middle East policy, an attempted cover up that is fooling no one, and bold face lies in a presidential debate. Candy Crowley runs interference for Obama while moderating, and then the mainstream media declares Obama the debate winner. For two weeks, he blamed his failure on a video that no one has seen.
None of this seemed to interest the New York Times or CNN in the days that followed. What would have been a feeding frenzy had George Bush been in office is mostly ignored. The MSM is in the tank for Obama and are complicit in his lies. They are covering for the Obama campaign by ignoring some of the worst presidential failures in history. It is a deception and a cover-up of the highest order.
Obama’s dismal vision is leading nowhere. He has divided us more than ever. In fact, the country is coming apart and is now on the verge of financial collapse. Meanwhile, Obama distracts us with Big Bird.
There is no limit to how low he will stoop. To say he says things that are not true is an understatement. The President is a deceiver and a liar. He cannot be trusted. Richard Nixon was forced to resign because he lied to the American people and could no longer be trusted. At least no one died in the Watergate crisis.
Mitt Romney is finally starting to articulate what should have been said about the Obama presidency long ago. Obama’s list of failure is long: a failed economy, impending financial collapse, trillion dollar deficits, high unemployment, ObamaCare, apologizing for American exceptionalism, giving guns to drug lords, failed Middle East policies, not supporting Israel, destroying domestic oil drilling and coal mining, endless government expansion, and so on.
If we fail to elect Mitt Romney, then we deserve all the pain and misery that will follow in the second term of Barack Obama. With only days to go until the election, there is no time to waste. We must do our part to turn out this dishonest and destructive man from office.
This will be a turnout election. With only small percentage of voters still undecided, it comes down to the ground game. That means it is about us at the street level. If you are not already engaged in the process, you need to be active in neighborhood walks, phone banking, sign waving, fund raising, poll watching, and so on. We must do what we can to ensure our side turns out to vote.
It is time for “we the people” to step up and remove this charlatan from office. It is now or never. We all need to be involved.
