LIST OF OBAMA LIES 2012 – UPDATED – OBAMA LAUNDRY LIST OF LIES
Source: Breitbart.com, August 12, 2012
Barack Obama has been proven by more than one fact checking organization to be a habitual liar.
“I am told that Governor Romney’s new running mate, Paul Ryan, might be around Iowa the next few days,” he said while in Council Bluffs, Iowa. “He is one of the leaders of Congress standing in the way. So if you happen to see Congressman Ryan, tell him how important this farm bill is to Iowa and our rural communities.”
The American automobile industry has come roaring back…So now I want to say what we did with the auto industry, we can do it in manufacturing across America. Let’s make sure advanced, high-tech manufacturing jobs take root here, not in China. And that means supporting investment here. Governor Romney … invested in companies that were called ‘pioneers’ of outsourcing. I don’t want to outsource. I want to insource.
“You Didn’t Build that”
While writing the previous piece where Washington Post’s The Fact Checker gave Barack Obama four Pinocchios on a statement he made on April 30, 2012, I clicked over to PolitiFact and took a look at the Obama File they keep where they have three pages of statements made by Barack Obama that were rated false statements.
Obama- If the Supreme Court throws out the federal health care law, it “would be an unprecedented, extraordinary step of overturning a law that was passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected Congress.”
(PolitiFact- Slim majority, not unprecedented)
Obama- “For the first time since 1990, American manufacturers are creating new jobs.”
Obama- “Preventive care … saves money, for families, for businesses, for government, for everybody.”
(PolitiFact- Wrong in 2009, and wrong today)
Obama- “Thirty million Americans, including a lot of people in Florida, are going to be able to get healthcare next year because of that law.”
Obama- “I made a bunch of these promises during the campaign. … We’ve got about 60 percent done in three years.”
(PolitiFact- “In the Works” does not equal “done”)
Obama Admin.- Under President Barack Obama, the United States has “doubled our exports.”
Obama Admin.- The president’s proposed budget “will help reduce the deficit by $400 billion over the next decade to the lowest level since Dwight Eisenhower was president.”
(PolitiFact-A mangled reference to a prior talking point)
Obama- Under the White House’s budget proposal, “we will not be adding more to the national debt” by the middle of the decade.
(PolitiFact-Revenue would equal outlays, but he ignores growing interest on the debt)
Obama- Twelve judges have thrown out legal challenges to the health care law because they rejected “the notion that the health care law was unconstitutional.”
(PolitiFact-Score two to two on judges’ decisions on constitionality)
Obama- “I didn’t raise taxes once.”
(PolitiFact-We’ve tracked a few increases)
Obama- When President Franklin D. Roosevelt started Social Security, “it only affected widows and orphans,” and when Medicare began, “it was a small program.”
(PolitiFact-A grain of truth in the big picture, far off on the details)
Obama- The Bush administration had been “giving (auto companies) billions of dollars and just asking nothing in return.”
Obama- “The vast majority of the money I got was from small donors all across the country.”
(PolitiFact-Big donors bankrolled much of Obama’s campaign)
Obama- “We’ve excluded lobbyists from policymaking jobs.”
(PolitiFact-We found at least four)
Obama- When Obama was interviewed by American reporters in Asia, “Not one of them asked me about Asia. Not one of them asked me about the economy.”
(PolitiFact-More than one did)
Obama- Insurers delayed an Illinois man’s treatment, “and he died because of it.”
(Insurer’s decision was reversed and man lived three more years)
Obama- Health reform will “give every American the same opportunity” to buy health insurance the way members of Congress do.
Obama- Preventive care “saves money.”
(PolitiFact-Covering preventive care for everyone is a net cost)
Obama- (No earmarks in spending bill)
That was only from page one of Obama’s false statement PolitiFact files.
(Note- Skipped one from page one because while PolitiFact rated it as false it was because Obama misspoke and quoted the wrong time frame, so I don’t count that as an outright lie to the American people, just sloppy.)
Noteworthy- Those three pages do not include the five instances where Obama was ruled worse than “false” but were called “pants on fire” false.
The another three pages of statements that are listed as “mostly false” on the Truth-O-Meter.
All those listed above are from one fact checking organization, PolitiFact, which leaves one to wonder how many lies Obama has told in total since organizations often fact check different statements.
Barack Obama has been proven by more than one fact checking organization to be a habitual liar.
