No Matter How You Slice It--Obama Lies Again

Obama's supporters have descended to defending his right to lie. That's the best moral argument the Democrats can muster. These are the people who have told America that social democracy makes the poor richer and the rich poorer, but ever since 1970 real wages have been falling and stock market returns have been rising. OLiar, I mean Obama, is perhaps the culmination of the Dewey cum Roosevelt cum Keynes cum Krugman social democratic movement that is based on deceiving the public into believing that the interests of the wealthy and of professionals, especially academics, stock jobbers and attorneys, are the interests of the poor. This is accomplished by arguing, as William Greider does in his book about the Fed, "Secrets of the Temple", that inflation is good for the poor, or that the $750 billion Wall Street bailout is good for the poor.

OLiar, I mean Obama's, latest deception (the list has grown so long that it's difficult to keep track) is that he did not know that his aunt was in the United States. Larry Johnson of No Quarter USA (h/t Larwyn) notes that:

"The Associated Press found that Obama’s aunt had been instructed to leave the country four years ago by an immigration judge who rejected her request for asylum from her native Kenya. The woman, Zeituni Onyango (zay-TUHN on-YANG-oh), is living in public housing in Boston and is the half-sister of Obama’s late father."

This was going on(i.e., the aunt was living in public housing while here illegally and as a non-citizen illegally contributing to the Obama campaign) while Obama's wealth soared into the millions. He is truly a man of honor. But wait, there's more:

"A statement given to the AP by Obama’s campaign said, “Senator Obama has no knowledge of her status but obviously believes that any and all appropriate laws be followed...The campaign said it was returning $260 that Onyango had contributed in small increments to Obama’s presidential bid over several months. Federal election law prohibits foreigners from making political donations. Onyango listed her employer as the Boston Housing Authority and last gave $5 on Sept. 19."

In other words, the aunt was illegally contributing to his campaign, but Obama claims that he did not know she was in the US. But here's the kicker. As Larry Johnson points out:

"One would think Obama would know the immigration status of his aunt after he rendered her into a textual spectacle in his 1996 memoir entitled Dreams of My Father. One would also think a relative would have contacted him in 2004 in order to inform the aspiring US Senator and Illinois political official that auntie needed assistance with her asylum petition. After all, auntie attended Obama’s swearing-in to the US Senate the same year her asylum petition was unfavorably adjudicated. Moreover, one would think that Obama would have been informed by someone related to his aunt that she donated tainted money to his campaign."

Was Obama lying when he wrote about the aunt in his memoirs, or was he lying when he said that he did not know anything about her presence here? Was he telling the truth about not knowing when she had attending his swearing in ceremony?

How many lies are enough? And how many lies are Obama's victimized followers going to tolerate before they realize that their candidate is a sociopath? Or rather, is the Obama movement simply one of thuggish liars who aim to gain control of the US government in order to loot, steal, murder and oppress?
