10 Worst lies of Obama.....

Attempting to select THE ten worst lies told by a pathological liar like Barack Obama is a difficult task. There are so many lies that it is hard to know where to start – a good case can be made for so many of his lies as top ten material. For this reason, there is no claim here to a TOP ten of his lies: ten of his most egregious ones.

During his last State of the Union speech, Barack Obama claimed “American oil production is the highest that it’s been in eight years.”

In fact, the Congressional Research Service reports that 96% of the increase comes from oil fields out of Obama’s control. By contrast, the production from federally-owned oil fields he does control has dropped by 275,000 barrels a day. It is worth noting that privately-owned fields have increased by 395,000 barrels a day.

Obama has told the world there has never been a better friend of Israel in the White House.

On Sunday, an Israeli newspaper reported that senior Obama Administration officials have told Tehran that Barack Obama does not intend to join Israel in any attack on Iran’s nuclear installations. In May 2011, Obama asked G8 member nations to fund the Arab Spring counties who are clearly on their way to planning an all-out attack on Israel.

In May 2011, Obama said the fence between America and Mexico was “basically complete”; yet the Department of Homeland Security admits just 36.3 miles or 5% of the border is fenced.

Obama lied and said abortions would not be publicly funded under Obamacare.

Despite Obama’s empty lies about no public funding for abortions, a March 2012 edict from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) unequivocally ruled Obamacare will use our tax dollars to fund abortion.

In April 2009, Obama claimed he “saved or created over 150,000 jobs.”

In an odd burst of veracity, his friends at the AP called him on this lie, pointing out that at that point since Obama came to office, the United States lost more than 1.2 million jobs as per his own Bureau of Labor Statistics. The report continued by pointing out that any jobs “saved or created” by Obama’s stimulus bill were “dwarfed by the number of recent job losses.”

He claimed that by the end of his first term, he would cut the deficit in half.

The truth is that he has given us more new debt than all previous presidents combined.

Remember Obama telling us there would be no earmarks in his 2009 stimulus package? He lied. The bill had over 9,000 earmarks in it, and of course, it failed to deliver even a small improvement for our economy.

Obama told us that without his 2009 stimulus package unemployment would grow to 8.5%. We got the stimulus, and it gave us 44 straight months of unemployment at or above 8%.

Obama lied about his position on Gay “marriage” multiple times, moving from “I am not one to support gay marriage” to his “evolution” in May. That was all a convenient pack of lies.

Yes, that would be Mourdock who says that Rape Pregnancies are God's gift to women and are INTENDED by GOD.

Romney supports Mourdock completely and thoroughly as does the GOPOX Senate Campaign Committee. They all support Mourdock who says:

Rape Pregnancies are God's gift to women.

Romney believes that women are inferior to 12 year old boys.

Ryan believes that a girl who aborts a fetus that is the result of rape and/or incest should be executed for murder.

Republiscums believe that women who miscarry should be investigated on suspicion of murder.

Republiscums believe that a Bayer asprin between the knees is contraception for women.

Republiscums believe that rape is a lie women tell.

Romney winning will start the road to real recovery and addressing the financial nightmare heading out way. Obama winning will not, and while watching the liberal agenda fail the way communism did would be vindication of a responsible conservative path, the destruction of our country from the cancer of our own debt will change America forever.

DETROIT NEWS ENDORSES MITT ROMNEY
Oct 25, 2012

Romney brings credible plan

We anticipate that Romney will govern in the same manner as Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder, a practical leader who shares his background as a business executive.

Snyder has rapidly set Michigan on the path to revival by applying sound business practices and accountability to government operations. We expect that Romney will also employ a results-oriented approach and be ever mindful of his customer, the taxpayer.

http://www.detroitnews.com/article/20121025/O...
Also like Snyder, we find Romney to be less partisan than the typical politician, and not bound by rigid ideology. The nation will be best served if the entrenched disagreements of the past four years give way to cooperation and achievement.

We are confident that Romney will be focused on the bottom line, and will divert the United States from "the road to Greece," as he's said on the campaign trail.

Hard choices to reduce the debt and deficit cannot be postponed. Spending has increased by nearly 25 percent in four years,$5 trillion was added to the national debt and the annual deficit doubled, with no return to fiscal discipline in sight.

The Keynesian approach has not worked. Despite an $830 billion stimulus and increased annual spending, the economic recovery is the weakest in post-World War II history. Investors remain on the sidelines, afraid to put their money into job creating projects because of the uncertainty about future tax and regulatory policy.

Romney's five-point plan for economic revival centers on energy independence, a goal that is finally achievable thanks to the natural gas boom and development of the Canadian oil sands; a better trained work force; trade that increases the demand for American goods and services; debt and deficit reduction and promoting the growth of small businesses. If implemented in urgent fashion, we believe the plan will work.

Romney would simplify the tax code and create a regulatory environment that works to protect consumers and assure a fair marketplace, but doesn't place the regulators in control of every private sector decision.

A solid resume

As a venture capitalist, the ability to make a deal was the key to Romney's success. He understands that most deals begin with the parties in adversarial positions but must end with them both satisfied that they've got as much as they've given.

What's missing in Washington is that willingness to move toward a middle ground. This all-or-nothing attitude has resulted in the inexcusable failure for three years of the president and Congress to pass a budget, a gridlock that has thwarted bipartisan solutions to the debt and deficit, and has now placed the country on the edge of a frightening fiscal cliff.

How Bill Clinton May Have Hurt the Obama Campaign

http://thecaucus.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/10/24...

When the histories of the 2012 campaign are written, it was Mr. Clinton who forcefully argued to Mr. Obama’s aides that the campaign had it wrong. The best way to go after Mr. Romney, the former president said, was to publicly grant that he was the “severe conservative” he claimed to be, and then hang that unpopular ideology around his neck.

In other words, Mr. Clinton counseled that independent voters might forgive Mr. Romney for having said whatever he had to say to win his party’s nomination, but they would be far more reluctant to vote for him if they thought they were getting the third term of George W. Bush. Ever since, the Obama campaign has been hammering Mr. Romney as too conservative..

THEN AMERICA SAW ROMNEY ON TV IN DEBATES AND ALL WAS HISTORY, HE WAS NOT THE MURDEROUS FIEND BARACK AD'S PAINTED.

BUT NO MATTER, LET'S BLAME BILL CLINTON SO BARACK IS UNCULPABLE FOR HIS OWN MISERABLE DEBATES AND LIES

Then maybe you can explain why under President Bush, and even Clinton, Carter, and Reagan the Secret Serice kept their hands clean. No big scandals. Suddenly we have a laid back, afirmative action Presidet, and he surrounds himself with A A people, and we have Secret Service agents gone wild. One on Joes team attacked a 14 year old. The have no shame. They should be fired, and lose all benefits

Democrats blame Romney is some candidate talks about rape, but Biden's S S Agent can rape a 14 year old, and they don't want to talk about it. That is why Americans don't pay any attention to Democrats anymore.

"A study co-written by Cragun and recently published in Free Inquiry estimates that the Mormon Church donates only about 0.7 percent of its annual income to charity; the United Methodist Church gives about 29 percent."

Mormons like Romney are cheapskates. They suck in US taxpayer money as a fake church, they meddle in politics which should make them ineligible for tax breaks and they use the money to build Temples that exclude the very taxpayers who pay for them.

Then they give practically nothing to charity.

This is what birthed Mitt Romney. No wonder he's such a god awful excuse for a human being.

Romney gave $4 million to charity last year, rendering your statement null and void.
