Yes, the hits keep coming.

And by hits, I mean: absurd, outrageous lies which fly in the face of reality.

Such as:

Obamacare will cut the cost of a typical family’s premium by up to $2,500 a year.

Obamacare would reduce the deficit by more than $120 billion over the coming decade.

And now, this:

Via Weasel Zippers: Obama Twitter Account Claims “Fact”: His Immigration Action Will Boost GDP By Tens Of Billions Of Dollars

(Oh, btw, POTUS doesn’t want us to call it ‘amnesty” – It’s Immigration Action)

I’m not sure on which planet POTUS believes this could actually be true.

But perhaps Bret Stephens said it best:

Martin Luther King Jr. said, immortally, that he had a dream.
President Obama is merely in one.


Daily Caller: Obama’s Amnesty Will Cost $22,000 Per US College Grad

    We’ve kept this saved whenever the occasion warrants:

    “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the ‘State Media’ can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the ‘Government/Media Complex’ to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the ‘Obama Administration’.”

    We updated the original quote from that certain political regime of the mid 20th Century…

    He says this, in part, because the CBO, only scores laws not ‘executive’ actions. And of course, the other part is, he has to lie. It’s his oxygen.

    It’s hugely destructive to the fabric of a republic when the leaders tell lie after lie, and blatantly flaunt tradition and the law. Seriously, is there anybody on either side of the aisle that actually believes any of this garbage?

    Our leaders no longer believe in “We the People”. They see the people as their impediment rather than their foundation.

    Some comments by Peggy Noonan, in her latest column, “The Nihilist in the White House”.

    There is an odd, magical-thinking element in the psychology of recent White Houses. It is now common for those within them to assume that history will declare their greatness down the road. They proceed as if this is automatic, guaranteed: They will leave someday, history will ponder their accomplishments and announce their genius.

    The assumption of history’s inevitable vindication is sharper in the current White House, due to general conceit—they really do think they possess a higher wisdom and play a deeper game—and the expectation that liberal historians will write the history.

    The illusion becomes a form of license. We don’t have to listen to critics, adversaries, worriers and warn-ers, we just have to force through our higher vision and let history say down the road we got it right.

    They make this assumption because they don’t know much about history—they really are people who saw the movie but didn’t read the book—and because historical vindication is what happened so spectacularly in the case of Ronald Reagan. So it will happen to them, too….

    Yes, their delusion becomes their license to lie, cheat, whatever. By any means necessary.

    Now I’m flashing back to “2001: A Space Odyssey”, the scene where HAL goes mad and kills off the astronauts. HAL explains to the survivor: “This mission is too important for me to allow you to jeopardize it.”

    I think that’s pretty much where Obama is coming from. What he’s doing is so terribly important that the destruction of the Republic and its people isn’t too high a price to pay.

    A par-for-the-course statement from Obama (no pun intended, of course). Remember, this is just like unemployment benefits remain one of the best ways to grow the economy, as well as food stamps and welfare programs stimulate the economy.

  5. Kitten says:

    This petulant man-child has trashed our constitutional democracy.

    Don’t think reality has been on this guy’s horizon much. Dope and leftist pap through the formative years, then a plaything of academia and now the MSM. Causing irritation may be the best he can do.
