The consistency of being lied to that is.
Consistency is important. Consistent lying is another matter entirely. We got a boatload tonight during the debate but at least it is indeed consistent with past behavior.
Many have learned that the old adage proves to be true time and again: you cannot judge a book by its cover. Many are too embarrassed to admit that they were sucked in by the rhetoric in 2008. (isn’t an admission of a problem the first of 12 steps to cure addiction?) What I find the most irritating is the absolute consistency of being lied to.
Many were humbled by the majesty of this individual Barack Hussein Kardashian…er Obama, who supposedly overcame such hardship and strife; whose booming voice became a source of comfort and pride; who calmed the seas and stayed the rise of the oceans. Many thought “this man could truly make a difference”. As the years have shown, the initial impression was a façade. What we have here folks is an opportunist taking advantage of the office to proliferate an ideology that just does not gel with the American public.
We find ourselves now in 2012 with a community organizer unwilling to own up to any responsibility whatsoever for anything, unless it’s positive of course. Pointing fingers is SOP in this administration and the buck just never seems to make it to the top. It may stop somewhere along the line, but it never quite reaches the summit. It’s just passed around like a hot potato to land in the lap of some unlucky fool or relegated to Barack’s favorite scapegoat, George W. Bush.
But back to Barack’s consistent lying. The most blatant lie of the night concerned the Obama stance on the Libya terrorist activity or rather his refusal to admit a pure terrorist attack until 2 weeks after the event. Ms. Crowley proudly announced that we should check the transcript of the Rose Garden speech the day after those fateful events in Libya. Well, I took her advice and did just that. Can’t find any mention of a terrorist attack. Can't find any direct correlation of Barack calling this incident directly an act of terror. This is the closest that we get:
No acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation, alter that character or eclipse the light of the values that we stand for.
But I also found this:
We reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others. But there is absolutely no justification to this type of senseless violence. None.
Pity that Barack can’t man up and admit that he never related the attack as a purely terrorist incident. However, he does indeed tie the attack to religious beliefs during the Rose Garden speech.
Just another example of the consistency of Barack Obama.
