If Obama were to tell the truth on all of the many issues he has lied about, he wouldn't have been reelected. His party won't blame him either. Why should he tell the truth? Policy and outcomes are secondary, staying in power is the objective.

That's certainly consistent with his personality.....lie often and tell really big lies. People expect him to lie so it's not news.

The demographic who support Obama are what the Soviets used to refer to as “the useful idiots.” Because these people could always be counted upon to be called out to support him against the interests of their own countries and in favor of Soviet and Socialist interests. Just like today, just as in the sixties.

Maybe it's just a habit?
He does enjoy a soft approach from the main stream media. They simply refuse to take him to task over his lies. With minimal accountability for it why should he change.
That said as long as the GOP continues to make fools of themselves they keep Obama off the front page.
I said it before and I'll say it again. Romney could have beaten Obama if he had only stuck to the facts instead of embellishing. You can't call someone out for lying when you're doing it yourself.

Absolutely. And most importantly, the media won't cover it or blame you either. At least not until they help you get re-elected for your last term.

At least you admit he's a liar, but really you side with this? That's just going to allow this corruption to continue. Funny how his supporters try to justify all this. Really does deserve the term moron because it's making all of them look bad. Do you also believe the way the country is being destroyed is justifiable too? It's not becoming, cute or smart at all.

Sadly, this is what is acceptable in today's political environment. If he had laid out Obamacare in detail in 2010, he NEVER would have been reelected.

I believe his lying is a defense mechanism he learned in early childhood to escape from his dysfunctional beginnings. The New York Times, in a 1995 review of the questionably titled "Dreams From My Father" summed up the young Mr. Obama with amazing foreshadowing:

"To balance the blessing of diversity and the pain of never feeling completely a part of one people or one place, the young Mr. Obama falls back on colorful stories from the world of his imagination."

Given how he was conceived -- by a married man having unprotected sex with an underage girl -- it's no wonder he started drawing on his imagination. The problem is that he seems to have let the lies consume him, so much that it's likely he's suffering from pseudologia fantastica, or pathological lying.

The Obama Chant:

" Obama, Hey You!
How many more have you lied to?"
Obama's entire life is a lie so why is the latest one such a major issue?

And the lower half of the IQ elected him. Twice.
