For the next ten Mondays I am going to try to demonstrate a strong tendancy of President BO (President out of respect for the office; BO because his agenda stinks) to stretch the truth about himself and his policies. I'll be doing about three examples per Monday, if I can.

Did Barack Obama, or did he not, when addressing civil rights activists in Selma, Alabama try to connect his birth to the generosity of the Kennedy family, which he said paid for his Kenyan father to travel to America on a student scholarship and thus meet his Kansan mother?

Answer: He did. Check it out HERE.

Did the Kennedy family give $100,00.00 to the so-called "Kenyan Airlift" which is supposed to have led to bringing BO into existance?

Answer: Yes...but not until late September of 1960...a little late for the introductions of a Kenyan to a Kansan who gave birth to the president-to-be in 1961.

Why stretch that Truth (read: why lie about it)? make himself seem more "authentic?"

Did Obama, or did he not, claim at that speech in Selma, "Selma Got Me Born?"

Answer: He did.

But Obama was born in 1961...Selma "happened" in 1965.

Do the math.

Why would he make such a false claim?

Would it be because he wanted to "connect" with the people of Selma at any price...even at the expense of the truth.

When speaking at the 2004 Democratic National Convention, did, or did not, Barack Obama bring forth a claim he would later use repeatedly to drum up public support. “My father… grew up herding goats, went to school in a tin-roof shack?”

Answer: He did.

But Obama’s sob story about being the son of a goat-herder is complete fabrication.

Obama’s father was actually born into a privileged life, not one of “tin-shack” poverty. His father, Obama's grandfather, was a prominent and wealthy farmer who emigrated from Kenya.

Why would Barack Obama make up the previous story?

Could it be that he wanted to make others think that he is one of them; that his rise to influence from the dregs of society would make him more impressive?

Now I can hear you saying, "So what?"

So what I am going to try to do on Mondays is to demonstrate a propensity for Barack Obama to make up stories and to misstate facts about himself and his history in order to convince people that he is not what he says he is, and that he is what he says he is not.

A pattern of this kind of continual deceit has a name: pathological liar.

As far as politics are concerned, facts and truth have no connection. The truth is what brings about social justice and the left will never let mere facts get in the way of the truth.

That's called non-linear logic. the left loves it.

shoprat: In fact, they are incapable of any other kind of logic.

Pathological liar = pathological politician.

Lying is like trying to hide in a fog.

Tom: Yep!

Bryan: Some fogs are worse than others.
