I was not surprised to see President Barack Obama repeatedly lie during this week’s presidential debate. His entire political career has been one lie after another.
Obama claimed to have increased the production of oil, natural gas and coal. Evidently Obama conveniently forgot about all of the new EPA and energy policies his administration has created that are forcing coal mines to either shut down or lay off miners. Ronald Koontz, General Manager of Murray Energy Corp’s Ohio Valley Coal Company’s Powhatan No. 6 Mine recently had to lay off miners because of Obama’s policies. Koontz commented on the layoffs saying:
“The failed energy policies of the Obama administration and the ‘war on coal’ that the president and his Democrat supporters have unleashed are the direct causes of this layoff. Unfortunately, for us, this is just the beginning [of] the work force reductions.”
“We are deeply disappointed and saddened that we had to take this action, but the excessive and unnecessary actions of the Obama administration have disrupted our mining operations and taken away much of the market for our coal. In turn, this will drive up electricity costs for everyone and increase the cost of goods for American citizens.”
Obama also lied in the debate when he claimed to be supportive of the 2nd Amendment and the right of Americans to bear arms. His administration, especially the Justice and State Departments, have been waging war on the Second Amendment. U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder has often indicated that he is against the private ownership of any type of gun. U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has been agreeing to every anti-gun legislation produced by the United Nations. The two treaties she has agreed to so far would restrict sales of all weapons and make all ‘small arms’ illegal to own. When you read the fine print in the U.N. Small Arms Treaty, all handguns, shotguns and rifles (hunting, target and competition) would be defined as a small arm.
Obama lied about not raising taxes on American’s making less than $250,000. He constantly lied about Romney’s policies and was repeatedly called on it, but continued to lie and smear the truth.
But perhaps the biggest lie of the night came when Obama declared that on the day after the attack in Benghazi that he told the American people that he said then it was a terrorist attack. Worse yet is that the UNBIASED moderator backed Obama’s lie, so that everyone watching believes Obama was telling the truth and Romney was the one lying.
Here is the video according to the Washington Post of Obama’s entire address made on Sept. 12 in the Rose Garden. At the 1:20 mark, Obama indirectly refers to the infamous anti-Islam video as a cause. I’ve watched and listened to this video three times and not once did Obama say or even hint that this was a terrorist attack. He did hint about the video, but not terrorism. Watch it for yourself:
I’m not sure which is worse, that Obama lied to begin with or that the moderator, CNN’s Candy Crowley backed up Obama’s lie. Her support of Obama’s lie on his statement on Benghazi was seen as proof that he was telling the truth and it made Romney look like the liar, when in fact it was the other way around.
But then CNN is no friend to the Republican Party. As a matter of fact, the moderators of all three debates have worked for the liberal mainstream media that slides into bed with the Democrats every night. None of the three were impartial or ran the debate in a truly neutral manner.
Bottom line is that I am so sick and tired of listening to Obama and Biden lie almost every time they open their mouths. And I’m tired of the mainstream media supporting and repeating their lies over and over and over again. When will it all end? Hopefully November 6.
