Forget the liberal media swarming around Dr. Ben Carson….. Barack Obama has thrown the press hundreds of scandalous lies since 2007, and the mainstream media whiffed on every single one of them. The American Thinker put together a list of just 25 -out of what is sure to be hundreds- of outrageous Obama lies that the press never followed up on.
25. “If I am the Democratic nominee, I will aggressively pursue an agreement with the Republican nominee to preserve a publicly financed general election.” Obama made this pledge in September 2007. He broke it in June 2008. He told the Washington Post he still supported the idea of public financing, but the current system was “broken” and favored Republicans who had “become masters at gaming” it. The media yawned.
24. “So don’t tell me I don’t have a claim on Selma, Alabama.” In March 2007, Obama claimed the 1965 events in Selma inspired his parents to get together. He was born in 1961. The media chose not to notice.
… 21. “I intend to close Guantanamo, and I will follow through on that.” Still waiting on this one.
… 12. “We need to close the revolving door that lets lobbyists come into government freely.” Having lobbyists come in the back door made this no less a lie.
… 3. “If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor. Period. If you like your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan. Period. No one will take it away. No matter what.” This is the Hydra-headed lie that got Obama re-elected and sent us so far down the road to serfdom we may not be able to turn back.
If you are still waiting for the media to wake up and start putting Democrats under the same scrutiny as Republicans, don’t hold your breath. But at least we have conservative reporters and citizen journalists who are willing to speak truth to power and tell the American people the other side of the story.
