According to a quote attributed to Abraham Lincoln :
“No man has a good enough memory to be a successful liar”
― Abraham Lincoln
My personal belief, as theScoundrel, is that social and political dishonesty is a natural survival tool that protects individuality. And until the birth of the Internet and Social Media – I would have disagreed with the previous statement by Lincoln. In my opinion, it is kind of ironic that the Internet and Social Media formats, which are even more rife with dishonesty than standard media formats, could offer the Lincoln quote - the power of actual adage veracity. Social Media, the advancements in video technology and the frenzied energy that drives the cornucopia of Internet-citizens exchanging information in the Internet community have made it tough for habitual liars (such are power-seeking politicians) to escape their past moments of political thespian creativity.
According to an article, by Alan Carub, at the Canadian Free Press:
If you Google “Obama + Liar” it will cite 33,000,000 times in which someone has written or posted that Obama a liar and, after a slow start, thanks to an adoring media, it took well into his first term for the accusation to become frequent. Inaugurated in 2009, early on his lies were being cataloged in order to keep up with them. There is even a website devoted to his lies, obamalies.net. They are constant.
That politicians lie is no secret. Obama is no exception and takes the passion to the MAX! Anyone that can think for themselves should have saw the Red-Flags the immediate moment Obama promised to become the most transparent President in US history. I winced at the Megalomaniac bullsh!t spewing from his mouth then, as well as, when I see his toadies daily spinning his fictional translations of Team Obama activities. His acolytes manage to keep his lemming fellowship dazzled with his progressive illusions past the point of their ability to reason. He has earned many unflattering nicknames including “Liar in Chief”. My favorite over the years has always been the “False Prophet”, which he continues to earn on a daily basis. But with his penchant for dishonesty I have to accept that the most honest description would be President Pinocchio.
