How many lies can one president tell and still retain any credibility?

What you are about to see is absolutely astounding. It is a long list of 
important promises that Barack Obama has broken since he has been president. If 
he had only told a few lies, perhaps the American people would be willing to 
overlook that.

After all, pretty much all of our politicians our liars. Unfortunately, many of 
the lies that Obama has told appear to have been quite cold-hearted in nature. 
For example, Barack Obama repeatedly made the promise that “ 
<http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qpa-5JdCnmo> you will be able to keep your 
health care plan” under Obamacare. But now we are learning that he knew that 
this was a lie all along. Not only that, the Democrats in Congress knew that 
this was a lie all along too.

In fact, U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a Democrat,  
said the following when she was asked about Obama’s promise to the American 
people recently: “He should’ve just been specific. No, we all knew.” You can 
see video of her making this statement  
<http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KAvH3XuTiWk#t=17> right here. The truth is that 
they all knew that millions upon millions of Americans would lose their current 
health care policies under Obamacare. They deliberately lied just so that they 
could get the law passed.

And of course this is far from the only major lie that Obama has told in recent 
years. The following is a list of 23 famous Obama quotes that turned out to be 
broken promises or cold-hearted lies…

 #1 “If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor. Period. If 
you like your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan. 
Period. No one will take it away. No matter what.”

 <http://www.presidency.ucsb.edu/ws/index.php?pid=85080&st=&st1=> #5 “We’ve got 
shovel-ready projects all across the country that governors and mayors are 
pleading to fund. And the minute we can get those investments to the state 
level, jobs are going to be created.”

 #6 “And we will pursue the housing plan I’m outlining today. And through this

their mortgages so they can afford—avoid foreclosure.”

 #7 “I will sign a universal health-care bill into law by the end of my first 
term as president that will cover every American and cut the cost of a typical 
family’s premium by up to $2,500 a year.”

 #8 “We reject the use of national security letters to spy on citizens who are 
not suspected of a crime.”

 #9 “For people with insurance, the only impact of the health-care law is that 
their insurance is stronger, better, and more secure than it was before. Full

need to file an income tax return at all.”

surveillance program involving Americans.”

 <http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DVHqfUOBXgo> #17 “If we have not gotten our

an opportunity to review and comment on the White House website for five days.”

authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an 
actual or imminent threat to the nation.”

 <http://washingtonindependent.com/1945/we-have-a-choice-in-this-country> #20 
“We have a choice in this country. We can accept a politics that breeds 
division and conflict and cynicism…. That is one option. Or, at this moment, in 
this election, we can come together and say, ‘Not this time….’”

#21 “We’ve got to spend some money now to pull us out of this recession. But as 
soon as we’re out of this recession, we’ve got to get serious about starting to 
live within our means, instead of leaving debt for our children and our 
grandchildren and our great-grandchildren.”

 #22 “[T]oday I’m pledging to cut the deficit we inherited in half by the end 
of my first term in office. This will not be easy. It will require us to make 
difficult decisions and face challenges we’ve long neglected. But I refuse to 
leave our children with a debt that they cannot repay – and that means taking 
responsibility right now, in this administration, for getting our spending 
under control.”

 #23 “I, Barack Hussein Obama, do solemnly swear that I will execute the office 
of president of the United States faithfully, and will to the best of my 
ability, preserve, protect, and defend the constitution of the United States.”
