Obama's Five Lies

Only five?
“Today, I’m pledging to cut the deficit we inherited in half by the end of my first term in office.” —Obama, Feb. 23, 2009
“Guantanamo will be closed no later than one year from now.”—Obama, Jan. 22, 2009

“What I can guarantee is that we will have in the first year an immigration bill that I strongly support and that I’m promoting. And I want to move that forward as quickly as possible.” —Obama, May 28, 2008 and “I will make [comprehensive immigration reform] a top priority in my first year as president.” —Obama, July 8, 2008

“We will help between 7 and 9 million families restructure or refinance their mortgages so they can … avoid foreclosure.” —Obama, Feb. 18, 2009
“We should reach for what’s best within ourselves. If we do, when we come back here next year, we can have an agreement that will lead to … an independent, sovereign state of Palestine, living in peace with Israel.” — Obama, Sept. 23, 2010
What about lowering the sea levels? Somehow, the Politico overlooked that one. 

I expect that eventually, Hillary Clinton will be given the blame.
Hillary is clearly playing the good soldier on the eve of the crucial second presidential debate between her boss, President Obama, and challenger Mitt Romney. After Vice President Joe Biden threw Clinton under the bus during the vice presidential debate, stating that neither he nor President Obama knew anything about the security situation in Benghazi, Hillary stepped out to the front to take the hit.

There’s a dual purpose for this sudden mea culpa. The first is obvious: Obama wants to end all speculation about his role in the Libyan disaster, and Hillary believes that she can take the hit and keep on trucking due to her personal popularity. The second is more subtle: Obama is losing the female vote now – Romney’s running just a point behind Obama among female likely voters according to Gallup – and he figures he can kill two birds with one stone if he can get Republicans to attack Hillary Clinton, the most popular female politician in the country, over Libya.
