Iowa Tea-Partier Accuses Barack Obama Of Lying

This past Monday (August 15th, 2011) Ryan Rhodes, a Tea Party organizer in Iowa, asked Barack Obama how Obama could call for more civility when “your vice president is calling people like me, a Tea Party member, a ‘terrorist.'”

Barack Obama — who, as you no doubt remember from his debates with Hillary, was against “forcing” (in his entirely apposite words) the individual healthcare mandate before he was so emphatically for it — this past Monday said:

“As someone who’s been called a socialist, not born here, taking away freedoms because I passed a healthcare bill, I’m all for lowering the rhetoric.”

To me, the most interesting thing about Obama’s comment here is the paradoxical nature of it: in actual point of fact he is a socialist, and until fairly recently he made no secret of this. (You can watch him on video here. Or, if you can stomach them, read his poorly written books, one of which I’ve excerpted here, and you’ll see that he’s not only an explicit socialist but, like his “friend and mentor” Jeremiah Wright, he’s a socialist of the black nationalist variety.)

Obama has also made no secret of the fact that he is all for taking away freedoms in order to nationalize healthcare — which is of course called socialism — and so the only real rhetoric here, still, is Barack Obama’s.

Because he’s told so many blatant lies, and because it would be so painfully easy to catch him up in all his circumlocutions and contradictions, Barack Obama would be much better off, in the important months to come, avoiding confrontations like this:

    Isn’t it true that Islamic extremists will brazenly lie and enter into treaties knowing they will not honor them, justifying it on the grounds we are infidel?

    Unfortunately the MSM, like everything else Obama, will bury these revelations as part of their work ethic.
    The first time I watched this exchange he deserved another Joe Wilson moment yet all we heard was crickets.
    The man flat out lies like a sociopath putting one foot in front of the other.

    I thought so. It seems relevant in this context, the notion that brazen liars are not our friends, nor should they be our “leaders”.
    Ah, hell, I just threw up in my mouth.
