Obama Out And Out Lies

Keeping up with Obama is practically a full time job- but I couldn't not mention this one.

Now, in terms of knowing my commitments, you don't have to just look at my words, you can look at my deeds. Just this past week, we passed out of the U.S. Senate Banking Committee, which is my committee, a bill to call for divestment from Iran, as a way of ratcheting up the pressure to ensure that they don't obtain a nuclear weapon.

The problem being, of course, that it isn't his committee, he's not even on the Banking Committee and he had absolutely nothing to do with the legislation. Oops. This takes the "inartful" statement to a whole new level.

Perhaps Barack isn't aware of this but we have this thing called "the media" who tell other people the things he says at these local events. They then use this special kind of magic called "technology" to broadcast his words and even moving pictures of him around the globe. As a result audiences other than the one he's talking to at the time can actually find out what he's saying. It can even work the other way around too- the people he makes these claims to can actually use technology (a magical web called the internet) to verify what he's telling them.

So when he lies about being on a committee that passes certain legislation which he's not involved with it at all, it's just possible that someone might be able to catch him out.

I think maybe someone on the campaign team needs to sit him down and explain this to him.
