158 Documented Lies from America's Prevaricator-in-Chief

It takes a pretty concerted effort to flippantly explain away/sweep-under-the-rug 158 intentional falsehoods from the habitually dishonest Barack Obama in little under a year... but that's what the American MSM have done. And in neglecting their Constitutionally-implied duties, they've become little more than the administration's propaganda arm and shameless Obamapologists... with their already thin credibility now down to one quark.

The tactics of the president's rabble-rousing mentor Saul Alinsky call for deception and deflection- how many times has Barack Obama said one thing but done another? Alinsky's techniques were also employed in the disinformation campaign against Rush Limbaugh et. al.

And Obama seems to think that everybody's as stupid as the people who voted for him. When not lying blatantly, he makes the loosest, most general statements possible- then implies deliberate falsehoods, i.e. that George W Bush is responsible for all the current rampant spending and quadrupling of the budget deficit because it started under him.

The Dear Leader's really pretty squirelly, and changes his story at-will... while we plebes are expected to just swallow this ever-morphing and malleable version of reality as it goes along. Obama also contradicts himself constantly, while the press does idiotic stories on his puppy vetting process and how he and Joey Pluggs like to go out for cheeseburgers.
Chairman O wants the state to be your mother and father- and seems to feel that it’s his right to lie to you if he wishes… just like your parents when you were five. Government will be one you come to for money, ask permission when you want to think or speak, and who handles all your finances for you since of course you can’t be trusted.

The blog Obama WTF (What's the Facts?) has done a great job compiling a list of 158 Documented Obama Lies... obviously a substantial ongoing endeavor, since the author of these whoppers is a such a prolific reprobate.

Obama WTF defines DOCUMENTED LIE as :
1) a statement by one or more reliable news agencies or credible authorities citing supporting verifiable facts which rebut a reported statement by Obama.
2) observable video/transcript contradictions
3) the omission of an important fact the exclusion of which defies common sense unless the intent is to deceive
This therefore EXCLUDES unintentional gaffes, i.e. Auschwitz Memorial Day blip; the 57 States, etc. which can be found at New Gaffe City.

This therefore also
excludes flip-flops unless:
a) Obama is seen to be holding multiple positions depending on the audience, eg The Jerusalem flip flop...where his position was altered with 18 hours, talking to different audiences.
or b) Obama lies about holding a different position e.g denying he favored gun control
