Last Sunday, TheBlaze posted a list of “70 Facts About The Economy That President Obama Probably Doesn’t Want You To See.”
This weekend, we offer you another list that President Obama is not going to want you to see. However, Mitt Romney and his campaign might find it worthwhile reading and viewing.
The website, Obama Lies bills itself as the place you can go to see the verified lies told by President Obama and those around him. As of the moment we are publishing this item, there are no less than 75 lies listed on the page. We have selected five choice whoppers for your education and enlightenment.
In 2007, then Senator and candidate Barack Obama was in Spartanburg, SC and told a pro-union audience the following;
“If American workers are being denied their right to organize and collectively bargain when I’m in the White House, I’ll put on a comfortable pair of shoes myself, I’ll will walk on that picket line with you as President of the United States of America. Because workers deserve to know that somebody is standing in their corner.”
There is, as they say in the NFL, “indisputable visual proof.”
Again, from the campaign trail in 2008, Barack Obama repeatedly pledged to put all of the healthcare negotiations on C-SPAN.
February of 2009 found President Obama vowing to reduce the deficit by 50% by the end of his first term in office.
But don’t take my word for it, the Associated Press was on hand and posted this video.
In early 2010, Mr. Obama claimed that the border fence is “basically complete.” It is, if you consider 5% as “basically complete.”
The legislation authorizing the construction of a 700 mile long fence was passed in 2006. When Obama made the statement about it being “basically complete” back in 2010, he was only off by 95%. (And that was according to information given by his own Department of Homeland Security.)
In March of this year, the President promised his new gas mileage standards would save the average American household $8000 per year. There is only one small problem with that statement. The average American family spends around $4100 per year on gasoline. And as Stu Burguiere famously pointed out on the Glenn Beck radio show... “spend $3000, save $8000!”
