Surprise surprise, another lie discovered. Obama's a habitual liar!

WASHINGTON — White House officials yesterday abruptly changed their story about whether President Barack Obama had ever met his father’s half brother, a Boston man who has been fighting deportation to Kenya after a drunken-driving arrest in 2011.

Two years ago, White House officials told The Boston Globe that the president had never met Onyango Obama, known as Omar, the president’s uncle. But Jay Carney, the White House press secretary, said yesterday that the 2011 statement was false. In fact, the two men lived together briefly while the president was a student at Harvard Law School, Carney said.

The president “had met Omar Obama when he moved to Cambridge for law school,” Carney said, and “ he stayed with him for a brief period of time until the president’s apartment was ready.”

Carney added: “After that, they saw each other once every few months while the president was in Cambridge, and then, after law school, they gradually fell out of touch. The president has not seen Omar Obama in 20 years and has not spoken with him in roughly 10 years.”

White House officials explained the abrupt change in the story by saying that no one had asked the president in 2011 whether he knew his uncle. Instead, Carney told reporters that White House officials in 2011 had simply relied upon the president’s own books and the public record to determine that they had never met.

My Mom was a Lib my dad was G O P and as an only child i learn to play both sides.
But i am always an American and part of the human race before anything else.
And sadly to say, I do not think Obama can make this statement.
We need a new party or make the party's we have obey the laws of our great land.
We do need a great leader to stand up for us, or we all need to stand up together

I agree with Sam: "We need a new party or make the party's we have obey the laws of our great land."

No, not all.

Are you making excuses for Obama with all the lies he's told already over the last 5 years?

No, not all do. I think you're being too cynical when it comes to politics.

Yes they do all lie out of necessity or convenience at times, Some tell bigger lies than others and I doubt any on either side and I mean any of them would want people poking around their lives too much, As far as that goes I doubt anyone would want people to know EVERYTHING about their past in or out of politics, I really don't think members of the GOP had better be pointing fingers at the president though considering some of the whoppers they have been spouting lately,

You're one of the worst that I know of that can't see fault in Obama no matter what he does.

Keep being blind to all the crap that he's pulled, because it makes you and his supporters continue looking like idiots with no sense whatsoever.

You're such a smart ass!


But yeah, I will say not all politicians lie....I mean, Abe Lincoln is called "honest Abe"...right? And then there is George Washington who said he "cannot tell a lie".

But anyway...all joking aside....I'm sure there are some who don't lie...they just don't get into the spotlight because the media would find them boring. It gets ratings when they catch a politician in a lie. Cynical? If you want to call it that, then yeah, I guess I am. But I've seen politicians lie/spin when asked a direct question.

This quote fits our politicians perfectly on either side of the political latrine trench, self-interests activities, back when it was first stated, right on up to the present:

Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive.

Sir Walter Scott (1771-1832)

I don't care where he used to live. I just want him out of the residence he currently inhabits. I know one place he won't live after his reign of corruption is over......Illinois.


On a side note.........Has anyone ever heard oslama's daughters speak, ever????? Could they be drones that fit the profile......lol.
