Remember when the Obama Administration promised unemployment would not go above 8% if we allowed Obama to spend a trillion of our tax dollars. We allowed and he spent.
Green jobs, he promised, would be a boon to the economy and life would be grand. In fact, he said unemployment would be 5.6% by July, 2012.
Well, he lied.
Now, about that word lied. Several years ago I would have simply said that was mistaken. He miscalculated. He had his facts wrong. But the Progressives all set us straight about exactly what constitutes a presidential lie during the lead up to the war in Iraq. No longer is a presidential lie something that the president knew was false but said anyway to get what he wanted.
Remember when George W. Bush told us there were Weapons of Mass Destruction in Iraq?
Well, when that turned out not to be the case some time later, the Democrats all said he lied. They had no proof that Bush knew that there were no WMD’s in Iraq before the invasion, but apparently, if a president utters a statement to get something he wants, and it later turns out that giving him his way did not achieve the goal going in, then that is a lie.
I tried to use reason, but the left would not hear it. Bush lied about WMD’s because he wanted to invade Iraq.
Ok. So we really have no choice here but to call Obama a liar. He wanted the cash to give out to his friends at companies like Solyndra and he promised 5.6% unemployment if we gave Obama his way.
So, we are at 8.2% and just like Bush found no WMD’s, Obama has found no jobs after promising results.
So we have had two presidents in a row that were liars.
If Bush lied about WMD’s, Obama lied about jobs.
