What will Obama lie about next?

President Obama has said many times that he wrote Dreams from My Father, his ostensible autobiography. Not collaborated on it, not co-authored it, not dictated it, but wrote it. That is indisputable and a matter of historical record. He has publicly stated on any number of occasions that he was the sole author of the book and even used this ‘fact’ to constantly bolster his image as a literate person with a superior intellect. There is no question that this image played a major part in getting him elected as President.


The trouble is he was lying through his teeth whenever he made the claim because he didn’t write it. An old friend and colleague of his named Bill Ayers just disclosed that he wrote the book, not Obama.

This has been suspected for some time and Ayers finally divulged the truth at a speaking engagement in New Jersey last week. It has correspondingly been suspected for some time that many of the ‘facts’ about Obama’s background and upbringing as revealed in the book are also lies. There are credible researchers looking into these suspicions as we speak and the truth will no doubt be exposed about them as well.

Does Obama continuously lie about other things beside his literary and intellectual capabilities? Absolutely. Not only that but he also frequently misleads, prevaricates, exaggerates, fibs and disguises, too, not just to the American people but also to America’s friends and allies all over the world. No one really believes a word he says about anything anymore and the dignity of his office, the credibility of the United States and the security of the free world have been severely diminished as a result.

In fact, the case can be made that he is a pathological liar who defrauded the American people and is leading the U.S. and the free world to rack and ruin. This is a view which is gaining currency across the political spectrum in America and around the globe. His motivation remains a bit unclear at this point (there are some who think that he is a closet Islamist who wants to turn the United States into an Islamic state and get rid of Israel to boot, some who think he is a socialist and so on), but the personality flaw and its deleterious results have become all too evident.

He certainly lied when he took his oath of office, which is arguably the most serious and egregious lie of all because it strikes a dagger into the very heart of America freedom and democracy. The oath reads “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

From Obamacare to the war in Libya, and at many places in between, he and his administration have run roughshod over the Constitution and shown a wanton disregard for its principles, requirements and restraints. He has done this willfully and purposely and has been disingenuous, dismissive and unforthcoming when challenged. Swearing the oath was just another lie, all things considered.

So what will he lie about next? I don’t know. I just know he will, again and again and again.

Oh, by the way, Bill Ayers is a long-time left wing radical with a real antipathy for America and its values and institutions who, among other things, co-founded the Weather Underground, a communist revolutionary group that bombed public buildings in the 1970s. Obama has often lied about his relationship with him, too.
