As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Obama in 2008: No Signing Statements for Me

As you are probably aware, one of the justifications the White House is using to explain it’s failure to consult Congress before releasing five Taliban murderers for an American army deserter is that Obama didn’t think the law requiring him to talk to Capitol Hill was constitutional.

His misgivings were expressed in a signing statement. The very kind of signing statement the wicked George W. Bush used to issue and that the Knight in Shining Armor, Sir Candidate Barack Obama, PROMISED NOT TO ISSUE.

Really, it’s dizzying. Is there any necessary relationship at all between what this man and his advisors say and the truth? The truth and any given statement by Obama seem to glide along on separate paths that may or may not by happenstance intersect.

Do you think I like this? Do you think I like not being able to trust my president, just because I disagree with his policies and think he’s often inept? I don’t like it at all.

  1. I was going to start my sentence “Truth be told . . .”, but this website doesn’t allow me a place to attach a signing statement (just in case).

  2. Excuse me, but I thought the law he now “thinks” is unconstitutional is one that he signed himself.

    I remember 2008 and his pledge not to resort to signing statements. In fact, I recall that he was going to go through Bush’s and reverse many of them.

    OT, but my husband watched the ceremonies for D-Day and said that Obama was chomping away on his Nicorette.

      • Weazel Zippers has a good video of the chomping…disgusting.
        But funny tweets from the French who were also disgusted are worth reading, thankfully there is a translation under each for those of us who do not read French.

    • Ha.
      Thankfully NO ONE in the “WH press corps” will ever look into or mention or research this 2008 Obama video.

      Thankfully NO ONE (especially the sycophants in the front row from the MSM) in this Obama “WH press corps” are REAL ‘journalists’ or ‘reporters’ (who work and research stories they report)

  3. He has lied from the start to Americans and other countries. This site is one of a very very small places you can find information on the truth. The MSM has covered for him from the first campaign.

  4. How to Spot a Pathological Liar
    http://www.wikihow.com/Spot-a-Pathological-Liar

    1: Understand what a pathological liar is. Basically, a pathological liar is someone who tells lies habitually, chronically and compulsively. This kind of lying tends to develop early on in life, often as a response to difficult home or school situations that seemed to resolve better if the child lied.

    2: Determine whether the person’s details and information comes across as consistent every time they tell a story.

    6: Examine the person’s reaction when they’re busted in a lie.
    The worst thing that can happen to a pathological liar is to be busted for telling the lie.

    Extreme defensiveness. Expect the person to become extremely defensive, doing whatever he or she can to pin blame on someone else.
    Quickly fabricating another lie to cover up the original fib. The pathological liar will start the cover-up process quickly to ensure that their reputation remains in tact. This may include a bigger lie than the original fib––which may be quite apparent.
    Vindictive and may seek revenge. Rage and anger may be another reaction stemming from being “outed”, so expect possible retaliation or vindictive behavior. Alternatively, they may feel upset that they have been caught in the act by someone who cares for them and have a tearful meltdown.

  5. Keith, your last paragraph wraps it all up.

    Obama is so full of himself that he doesn’t realize how little most people trust him. It’s not based on his race or even his ideology, but the fact that he has lied to Americans so often recently thatyou literally can’t believe a word that he says.

    And it’s more than just spin. Everyone expects spin from politicians; people don’t expect such an endless string of lies.

  6. The man is a liar. His word means nothing. He is not trustworthy. It was obvious from the beginning.

    But all the lies and chicanery and bad faith and trickery are the tools that Barack Obama uses in pursuit of the one truth to which he has remained constant. He will fundamentally transform America.

    And the Democrat Party and the MSM have cleared the path.

  7. He is an embarrassment to all Americans. His b-bopping along up to the platform and hopping up the stairs to be along side other world leaders was disgusting. I was waiting for him to take his usual selfie with the Queen

  9. Lying is intentionally – that is, by choice — used to manipulate the thoughts and acts of others for the personal gain of the one doing the lying. Lying is the tool of the narcissist.

    This President has destroyed the trust and relationship he has with the citizens of the country he has been asked to lead. He has betrayed us.

    Adding insult to injury, this President doesn’t CARE that he has betrayed us. In his mind, the ideological ends justify the means.

    Do you think I like this? Nope. I HATE IT.

  10. We are just a buncha chumps sitting around waiting for November to spank this guy. I know what you mean, Keith. He does things just because he can–and devil take the hindmost. Bad administrating, bad impression to the world, lies–oh, sit on it, citizens.

  11. sadly, this administration has lowered the bar with regards to decent behaviour, thus setting the stage for even worse in the future.

    • Worse by him, maybe–but maybe also the next president can break the cycle–at least listen to the people, be respectful of the traditions of this country and what makes it great. Chris Matthews–Tweety of all people!–had a good point–we liberated France not to keep it or profit from it–we gave it back. That is exceptional!

  12. Liar, liar,pants on fire — thats Obama, a total liar and most people know it and are not fooled with his phony speeches filled with only insults to the Republican party filled with lies and more lies, just for votes and power. AND IF YOU DO YOUR RESEARCH, ITS FUNNY BUT HILLARY CLINTON HAS A HABIT OF BEING A LIAR TOO, REMEMBER HER DUCKING THE BULLETS AT THE AIRPORT AND THE BENGHAZI HEARING, FULL OF BALONEY. CLINTON MAY WIN BECAUSE THEY WON’T CDUNT THE MILITARY VOTE AGAIN AND IT WILL BE THE SAME FRAUD BY THE CHICAGO GANGSTER THAT GOT OBAMA IN THE FIRST AND SECOND TIME, UNLESS THE PEOPLE AND/OR BOEHNER (NEVER HAPPEN) DO SOMETHING ABOUT THE FRAUD HERE, JUST LIKE THIRD-WORLD COUNTRY ELECTIONS, NO DIFFERENT HERE NOW IN THE GOOD OLE USA.

  13. For example, malpractice from a doctor or surgeon will also
    be counted as personal injury. If you put all of these tips to use,
    you should have no problem finding a personal injury attorney that will competently and
    efficiently represent your best interests. Through this,
    you are capable to compare the services provided by various law firms.

  14. Personal injury attorneys cover claims that have created injury to a profession out from
    helping clients create the rewards they deserve in the courtroom because
    of someone else’s negligence. If you don’t know or can’t meet legal professionals, go hang out at the local courthouse.
    Typically, this could cover bites by domesticated animals such as dogs, ferrets, cats and even birds.
