The Annica Thomas Show 85: Obama Lies

Welcome to The Annica Thomas Show. The topic for this episode is “Obama Lies.”


You may remember the congressman yelling “You Lie” during President Obama’s 2009 State of the Union speech. He yelled this is response to Obama saying reform efforts wouldn’t provide health insurance to illegal immigrants. We’ll soon hear a lot more about illegal immigrants, or undocumented individuals. Here’s where Rep. Joe Wilson says, “you lie” in Obama’s 2009 speech:

“There are also those who claim that our reform efforts would insure illegal immigrants. This too is false. The reforms I am proposing would not apply to those who are here illegal. {You lie} It’s not true. And one more. This misunderstanding I want to clear up. Under our plan no federal dollars will be used to fund abortions and federal conscience laws will remain in place.”



Obama lies on Obamacare:


Notice at the end of that clip he says federal conscience laws will remain in place. Not true. I looked that up: Federal conscience clauses permit pharmacists, physicians, and other providers of health care not to provide certain medical services for reasons of religion or conscience. Now not only does this not apply to physicians, but even business owners like those who run Hobby Lobby are not allowed to not provide certain medical services that go against their religion and conscience.

Obama said his health care plan would not add one dime to the federal budget. Obamacare is now projected to add $6.2 trillion to the deficit.

The Affordable Health Care Act was to bring savings to American families, but’s been shown to be a huge burden. Senator Ted Cruz said, “Before Obamacare was adopted, President Barack Obama pledged that American families would pay $2,500 less for their insurance premiums by the end of his first term. Today, they are paying $3,000 more — a $5,500 swing between what was promised and reality.”


Obama lies on debt:


This is what Senator Barack Obama said in 2006, “The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. … Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here. Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.”

Either those statements were untrue or his more recent conflicting statements are untrue. This is what he said in his last press conference of his first term on raising the debt ceiling:

“If congressional Republicans refuse to pay America’s bills on time, Social Security checks and veterans’ benefits will be delayed. We might not be able to pay our troops, or honor our contracts with small business owners....It would be a self-inflicted wound on the economy. It would slow down our growth, might tip us into recession, and ironically, would probably increase our deficit. So to even entertain the idea of this happening -- of the United States of America not paying its bills -- is irresponsible. It’s absurd.... So we've got to pay our bills. And Republicans in Congress have two choices here: They can act responsibly, and pay America’s bills; or they can act irresponsibly, and put America through another economic crisis.”


Obama lies on gay marriage:


Technically he may have “evolved” rather than lied. In 2008 Obama talked to Rick Warren from Saddleback Church in California. Warren said “Define marriage” Obama said “I believe that marriage is the union between a man and a woman”

And now according to Ernest Istook Obama’s stance is that states that allow civil unions will have to allow gay marriage.


Obama lies on transparency:


We’ve heard him say his is “the most transparent administration.” However this President is limiting press access in ways no other President has. The White House is trying to avoid the media by practically being it’s own news agency by controlling how, when, and where the President’s messages to the public are conveyed.

Professor of political communication at the University of Pittsburgh Gerald Shuster says, “There’s no question that he’s opening and closing the door at his choice. He’s controlling the flow as much as he can.”

Of course when you tamper with truth, you want to have control. There are many more Obama lies. Why should we believe him?
