Yes, Obama's newest lie that Media Matters and the rest of the propaganda network have tried spreading.......OBAMA: I DIDN'T KNOW HOW BAD IT WAS GOING TO BE. Meanwhile lets FLASHBACK to 2008 Campaign. " THIS IS THE WORST ECONOMY SINCE THE GREAT DEPRESSION". Sure sounds like he already knew how bad it was......The liar in chief in his best form.
