A devastating compendium of the president's false and misleading statements on matters great and small
In November 2009, after listening to President Obama read a litany of impossible health care promises -- including the now-famous "Nothing in our plan requires you to change what you have" -- Representative Joe Wilson of South Carolina vehemently shouted, "You lie!"
Wilson was roundly chastised by both parties. But he was ultimately proved right. Obama was lying--to Congress, to the press, and to the American people. And not just about health care, but about very nearly everything.
In fact, Barack Obama has been lying about his personal history and his political philosophy since he first emerged on the political scene in 1995. But throughout his meteoric rise and the first five years of his presidency, the media turned a blind eye.
Now, in You Lie!, journalist and author Jack Cashill provides an authoritative and entertaining guide to Barack Obama's numerous evasions, contradictions, misstatements, deceptions, untruths, and outright falsehoods, beginning with the deliberate distortions in Dreams from My Father and continuing through his political career and his years in the White House.
Obama's lying knows no bounds. Some of the boldest include
It wasn't until the disastrous Obamacare rollout in late 2013 that the president's lies caught up with him. Finally, it was impossible even for mainstream media to ignore his repeated (untrue) assertions that Americans could keep their health care plans and family doctors if they wanted--a patently false assurance that would swiftly earn the dubious distinction of PolitiFact's "Lie of the Year."
Either the president knew all along, or he was so out of touch with his own health care law that he was as surprised to learn the truth as the rest of us. Given the choice of calling him a liar or a fool, the liberal press went with "liar." Not surprisingly, no one apologized to Joe Wilson.
