Obama says he NEVER has compared himself to Lincoln.

Except that Obama has compared himself to Lincoln a dozen times.

Is Obama truly a pathological liar?

This lie in and of itself is not a big deal, but it illustrates that the truth has no meaning for Obama. Obama had to have known that this was not true. Yet he said it anyway when it suited him.

But, then, has there ever been a president who so completely over-salted his own brand as Barack Obama? "I never compare myself to Lincoln," the president told NBC's David Gregory last year.
The WSJ could have added more references of himself to Lincoln

I'll see if I can find a transcript, but when he came through my part of Michigan very early in his campaign...maybe even 2007...he compared himself to Lincoln.

Not really, just calling it like people see it, does it bother you that some lies, no matter who the person?

Wow, it's nice that you apologists tolerate people lying to you.

Or are you secretly disgusted that you fell for all of those lies, yet want to save face by making it seem like it's no big deal?

Because the truth about Obama is.......he's a liar.

That all depends on the lies right?

Obama says he never compared himself to Lincoln.

Dubya said Iraq had 'Weapons of Mass Destruction"

Which "lie" cost us more?

Your president presents a behavioral pattern diagnostic of a pathology and you don't care?

Obama reflects the ethics of those who voted for him, so it is no surprise they and the media propaganda machine tolerate behavior not complimentary to their "elected" politician.

It is obama who hates you! as he has demonstrated many times, not through incomppetence but intent. Though the argument for incompetence is very strong. Perhaps Obama's mental state has deteriorated to a point where he needs emergency medical intervention. Thank God, his employer did drop his substandard medical coverage to spare him from obamacare.

Thank you for your "diagnoses" and why your "pathological" wimps couldn't unseat President Obama.

Let it go. The entire government had the same information regarding Iraq. In hindsight, we should have stayed away, but the war was supported by both sides.

First, everyone in congress voted to go to war...are you calling all your fellow dems liars or stupid?

So, as long as everyone lies, it's o.k.?

Great analogy...not really, but if it makes you feel better....
