The Obama Administration campaigned on a message of Hope & Change, and came to office on claims that it valued truth, honesty, transparency and security. However, the result of the last five years of the Obama Administration has been the following:
Obama lied about his relationship with Bill Ayers.
Obama lied about his relationship with Rev. Wright.
Obama lied when he said he would accept Public Funding for his 2008 Campaign.
Obama lied when he said that debate on any new legislation would be broadcast live on C-SPAN.
Obama lied when he said his administration would be fair – the EPA uses “Roman Imperial” tactics to enforce policy.
Obama lied when he said his administration would be fair – the IRS systematically and deliberately targeted and blocked Conservative groups from gaining tax-exempt status.
Obama lied when he said his administration would be just – the Department of Justice and the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms used the “Fast and Furious” program to funnel thousands of firearms to Mexican drug cartels – and had no means of tracking them, leading to the deaths of thousands of Mexican nationals, as well as Border Patrol Agent, Brian Terry.
Obama lied when he said his administration would financially responsible, but passed a nearly $1 trillion “stimulus” plan that achieved nothing, gave $500 million to Solyndra – which went bankrupt the next year, and wasted billions on boondoggle projects.
Obama lied when he said his administration would help grow business and create jobs, but when labor unions opposed a company creating non-union jobs, the National Labor Relations Board blocked Boeing from expanding their company to South Carolina.
Obama lied when he said his administration would be smart, but following the Osama bin Laden killing, the administration crowed about the achievement, broadcasting news of a “treasure trove of information” that had been collected at the Abbottabad compound in Pakistan, completely nullifying any intelligence advantage.
Obama lied when he said his administration would never attack the Second Amendment and laws which protect the rights of Americans to own and bear arms.
Obama lied about Obamacare in every way. In how it would be crafted, in how it would be passed, in how it would be implemented, in how it would be Constitutional, in how it would affect healthcare, in how it would affect the economy.
Obama lied when he said that the HHS Mandate did not infringe on the First Amendment protections of Freedom of Religion.
Obama and the Democrats lied when they claimed to respect and honor the United States Military, yet at the Democrat Convention – the Democrat Party used images of the Russian Navy during a presentation on the military.
Obama and the Democrats lied when they claimed to respect and honor the historical and traditional relationship the American people have with God and the special relationship America has with Israel, when during the Democrat Convention, the party voted to remove any reference to “God” and acknowledgement of Jerusalem as capital of Israel from their platform.
The list could go on endlessly. The points that I have illustrated above serve as only the tip of the proverbial iceberg. While President Obama came into office as a fresh, new face, full of promise and potential, and claiming to be a champion of truth, honesty and transparency, he has failed to deliver on any of these.
