The thread between believability and outright lies has been stretched thinner and thinner as President Obama continues his five year dance over the truth of his missing in action responsibilities. Of course it is more than a little unsettling that this president was caught in a massive lie which he managed to repeat at least 12 times during his administration. You know the one: “If you like your healthcare you can keep it – period!”
Fox News, and now other mainstream media outlets like NBC and CBS, have reported that while the president was continuously lying to the American people, administration documents indicate that the administration officials at HHS and the IRS were saying something quite different. It seems irrefutable that Obama has been lying for three years straight, and used those lies to win re-election in 2012!
While the Republican presidential candidate was correctly telling the American people truth about the now seemingly preposterous claims being made by Obama and his own administration officials, the president told the nation in an October 2012 debate that Americans could in fact keep their health care and their doctor if they wanted to.
The reality of course was different and the truth about his falsehood was contained in administration documents from June and July of 2010. That year the Department of Health and Human Services published a regulation that all but nullified the President’s claims of “If you like your healthcare you can keep it!” The truth did not matter to Obama, just the lie.
This morbid lie is not just a massive fraud upon the American people, but it begs the question what else has the president either lied about or feigned any knowledge of during his tour as president. The Obamacare lie about Obamacare has resulted in two million citizens having their insurance coverage terminated in October. And According to Fox News, at least 12 to 14 million Americans will be stripped of their healthcare insurance soon.
According to HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, the President did not know that his grand healthcare plan was a big dud when it comes to being launched October 1st. There were no pilot tests, and somehow he could not fit one in between golf, hanging out with Hollywood stars or keeping company with JayZ and Beyonce during the roll up.
But more seriously is Obama’s penchant for deniability or sheer incredulous responses to reporter inquiries about what did he know and when did he know, just about anything. Claim after claim, the president has informed the nation that he knew nothing about anything he is in charge of whether it was “Fast and Furious, “Benghazi”, “IRS spying on journalists”, or IRS shutting down Tea Party non-profit status claims.
Obama is not a president in the traditional sense of Harry Truman who told journalists that, “The Buck Stops Here.” Rather, Obama is the type of leader who knows more about basketball scores than he does about whether four Americans should be rescued in Benghazi from the clutches of murderous Al Qaeda terrorists. In other words, he is competency challenged.
But it certainly gets much worse than that, because to believe that this president can keep denying knowledge of the inner workings of his administration is to stretch all reasonable credibility. Either he is out of the loop, or he is at its center instructing and obstructing by maintaining no records for Congress’s prying eyes, the president must be held accountable.
According to Fox News, the Republican National Committee has outlined a pattern of Obama’s behavior which demonstrates that he is in fact a “Bystander President.” The list of Obama’s denials should be deeply troubling for any American. Either Obama is in charge of his own administration or he is totally incompetent and his ignorance over policy and execution of regulations is beyond his community organizer grasp.
The nation has already been through two recent cover-ups by American presidents and both resulted in congressional impeachment hearings. Richard Nixon resigned before an impeachment vote could be held and Bill Clinton had an impeachment trial in the U.S. Senate that he survived. Both hearings were initiated by lies spoken directly from the mouths of the presidents.
Obama is on record for not just tortured deniability claims and lies on Benghazi, Fast and Furious or Obamacare, but he has seemingly treated the American public as if the nation is not entitled to the truth.
America’s founding fathers warned the nation about leaders like Obama and what must be done if the country should ever have the misfortune to elect one like him. Americans have the power.
The most effectual means of preventing [the perversion of power into tyranny are] to illuminate, as far as practicable, the minds of the people at large, and more especially to give them knowledge of those facts which history exhibits, that possessed thereby of the experience of other ages and countries, they may be enabled to know ambition under all its shapes, and prompt to exert their natural powers to defeat its purposes.
— Thomas Jefferson, 1779.
Now is the time for Americans to open their eyes to a president that Politico has labeled as one who uses his “in-the-dark defense,” when it comes to presidential responsibility for criminal actions of misfeasance or malfeasance. The tyranny of this presidency must be fully exposed.
Congress must uncover the Obama’s connection to any and all of the cover-ups and claims of deniability that he has used, as they once did against President Richard Nixon. Obama must be held to account and, in doing so, remove his purposeful intent to change America from a democracy to a socialist state.
