Obama Teaches Us How to Lie

Filed under: 2008 Election,Crime,General,Media Bias,Scum — Patterico @ 5:41 pm

This is a brazen lie, even by the standards of the Obama campaign.

Jake Tapper reports:

The Obama campaign is circulating a YouTube clip of Rep. Roy Blunt, R-Mo. — the No. 2 House Republican — talking about the role of Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., at the disastrous White House meeting, on MSNBC today.

In the Obama campaign clip, Blunt says of McCain: “Clearly, yesterday, his position on that discussion yesterday was one that stopped a deal from finalizing.”

Here’s the clip Obama’s crew is circulating:

And here’s what Obama spokesliar Bill Burton said about that clip:

Congressman Blunt just confirmed what’s been clear since John McCain rode into Washington at the eleventh hour -– Sen. McCain’s political theatrics succeeded only in stopping a bipartisan deal. During the most serious economic crisis of our time, we don’t need erratic posturing, we need steady leadership to protect American taxpayers and put our economy back on track.

This is a Big Lie, and I want to see Obama called on it tonight in this debate.

Here is the full quote, via Tapper:

I do think that John McCain was very helpful in what he did. I saw him this morning, we’ve been talking with his staff. Clearly, yesterday, his position on that discussion yesterday was one that stopped a deal from finalizing that no House Republican in my view would have been for, which means it wouldn’t have probably passed the House. Now, Democrats are in the majority. They can pass anything they want to without a single Republican vote, but they don’t seem to be willing to do that. I’m pleased we can have negotiations now that get us back towards things that we think can protect the taxpayers better, create more options, and frankly be better understood in the country than the plan—the path we were on a couple of days ago.

And the video:

In summary, Obama’s spokeshole says Congressman Blunt confirmed that “Sen. McCain’s political theatrics succeeded only in stopping a bipartisan deal” — when, in fact, Congressman Blunt confirmed that McCain’s involvement kept alive the possibility of a bipartisan deal.

Unbelievable.

Good work by Tapper, and strong evidence of the stunning dishonesty of the Obama campaign. This may be the single biggest lie I have seen this campaign season — and that’s saying something.

  1. Exhibit #375 in the people against B. Obama.

    I hope Sen. McCain gets word of this before the debate tonight.

    This may be the single biggest lie I have seen this campaign season — and that’s saying something.

    Indeed.

  2. It may be the biggest lie but it is not the only one, nor will it be the last one that Obama brazenly, and knowingly, tells.

    Tonight, you’ll see some more brazen lying by Obama.

  3. That one is incredibly brazen. I hope it gets mentioned tonight.

  4. Haven’t we had about enough of this – is no one able to control the media? They can just make up anything whatsoever with creative editing> Is no one able to call BULLSH*T on this?

    ENOUGH IS ENOUGH – it’s time to find a way to fight back against this.

  5. If you think this is the worst BHO lie yet, you haven’t been paying attention.

    In any case, I suggest just waiting for the McCain campaign or the rest of the MSM to discuss this.

    The last thing anyone should do is encourage people to go to BHO’s appearances and call him on this lie. After all, that might be effective.

  6. If he appears in this area again I may force mysely to listen to his whine long enough to ask him why he is such a liar and still serving in congress. Wait that’s wrong, he has been paid for 4 years but has only served 143 days and that time was spent requesting $875 + in pork to pay bribes to his criminal friends in Chicago. Like his community agitator days, he will steal more than the people get. What was it? Out of $100,000 his friends wife ended up with $65,000 and Chicago ended up with a $500 Gazebo. There is an ongoing criminal investigation into this right now.

  7. Obama’s training in the Saul Alinsky school of “community organizing” promotes deception and outright lies to advance the socialist cause. Obama is proud of his ability to lie with a straight face, he considers it an accomplishment.

    The pedestrian constraints of logic and truth are for suckers, not for THE ONE we are all waiting for.

  8. i got this posted on my myspace. People are getting really pissed off at Dems and Obama for shit like this. I usually end up posting it on a bulletin as. I hate when Obama thinks we’re dumb!!!

    gets good results

  9. McCain didn’t bring up this fabrication at the debate tonight. Nor would he look Obama in the eye. You know why? Because his campaign has been just as dirty and dirtier. Quit whining and talk about issues folks! Do some research on their Senate records, get some numbers and then blog when you have something substantive to talk about.

  10. Sen. McCain’s political theatrics succeeded only in stopping a bipartisan deal.

    Potent guy, that McCain, eh? Seems like Obama’s “diplomacy” doesn’t work too well, right? Nor does Jim Leher’s brand, to get the opponents to ~ “talk to each other”: or, “can’t we just have a group hug, yeah, that’ll work?” [Rodney King]

    Hey, btw, go back to Nursery School, Tsumamio608, or maybe to the womb, or even further. Your forray into infanthood has obviously proven to be an abject failure. Otherwise, get used to it. And get rid of that bottle, stat! Adults are not even going to listen to you, except for the noise you make, and the irritation of your interminable sucking machinations, of course. Insead, try facing life, for once. I’m only trying to help.

  11. Suckmommy608 –

    Quit whining and talk about issues folks!
    — Obama’s lies are an issue, dishrag.

    Nor would he look Obama in the eye. You know why?
    — Because he couldn’t make it past the Dumbo ears.

    Because his campaign has been just as dirty and dirtier.
    — Which means you admit that Obama runs a dirty campaign.

    Quit whining and talk about issues folks!
    — Quit whacking and grab some tissues, freak!

    Do some research on their Senate records, get some numbers and then blog when you have something substantive to talk about.
    — That’s been done. Do try to keep up.

  12. Where are the usual suspects who would defend this?

    JAR? jharp? Oiram? love2008? Phil? Levi?

    Bueller?

  13. It’s not the “biggest lie” in the sense of being the most important one.

    It is one of the most easily and irrefutably exposed, however.

  15. It’s another illustration of the type of people Obama is surrounding himself with, which does not bode well for an Obama presidency. OTOH, if it’s a Democratic congress, it may not matter.

  16. What sort of campaign sends out a 9 second clip to prove anything? Truly pathetic.
