A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet
I've been on this earth quite a number of years now. I have endured any number of politicians. I have suffered -- and prospered -- under any number of presidential administrations from FDR to present.
America has been blessed/cursed with some of the most accomplished liers on planet earth serving as our leaders. But today America has reached the apex of prevarication -- the absolute peak in the perversion of truth.
The Obama Administration knows how to do nothing better -- than lie. They are past masters at the disingenuous. They have been at it from day one. Now they seem to just lie, as a matter of course, and think nothing of it even when called on it in public.
You know, there is a strange bit of wiring in the human mind that no scientist has yet been able to figure out. Somehow, it seems, we are wired so that we tend to love and respect more the person who lies to us than we do the person who honorable tells us the truth. It's as if we have this primal urge to leap off the cliff onto the rocks below in some sort of grand gesture to the liers who beckoned us toward the cliff in the first place. Weird, is it not?
America is ruled today by a host of pathological liers. They are professional liers. It's what they do. Never underestimate these people for they are smart. They have to be.
There is an article entitled: "Traits Of A Habitual Liar" We recommend you read it. You will find it at: http://lifestyle.iloveindia.com/lounge/traits-of-a-habitual-liar-9067.html
Once you have read the article you will, we expect, find that you are better able to understand the way the Obama Administration works.
As a bit of a teaser here is one of the "Characteristics Of Habitual Liars" found in the article:
No Sense Of Responsibility
"A habitual liar can never take responsibility for his/her behavior, and if confronted and questioned for a behavior, the person often blames other people or situations. Even when there are evidences against the liar, he/she would refuse to admit the responsibility and try to sound convincing, giving excuses and explanations to prove the evidences against him/her to be false or untrue."
Umm. Sound familiar?
What the hey! Here's another:
Why Grow Up
"Habitual liars follow one policy in life - why grow up. Some sort of abuse and neglect in their childhood tends to freeze such people in their childhood levels of development. Though they might look and act to be an adult, some of their core thinking is stuck in the thought process that once existed during the boyhood days. These patterns tend to come out more strongly in stressful situations."
Consider this: "A liar knows that he is a liar, but one who speaks mere portions of truth in order to deceive is a craftsman of destruction.”
― Criss Jami (the author of Venus in Arms and Salomé)
Scientists tell us that mankind's IQ (Intelligence Quotient) has been dropping drastically in recent decades. I find that absolutely believable. One has either to suspend disbelief -- deliberately -- or, well, be dumb as a post to believe the lies coming from the Obama Administration.
The insidiousness of the Obama web of deceit is designed to entrap an entire nation. Their deceit is subtle with cumulative harmfulness for all Americans. Admittedly, they are not as subtle as they were in the first term. Now, unanswerable to the voters, their lies have become bold, even brash.
A while back, George Will remarked: "Barack Obama's intellectual sociopathy -- his often breezy and sometimes loutish indifference to truth -- should no longer startle." SOURCE: http://www.americanthinker.com/2012/04/why_obama_lies.html#ixzz2NYR2jGxH
Finally, consider this: " ... Barack Obama, the man who lies as easily as breathing – a serial deceiver regarding his birth, his childhood, his education, his influences and associations, his religion, his accomplishments, his policies, his true beliefs and his plans for America’s future. Barack Obama, the man whose entire presidency has been a seamless fabric of deception and duplicity ... " SOURCE: http://www.wnd.com/2012/07/heres-why-obama-lies/#iE9ezDti3lmc1hs4.99

On the other hand:
Those of us who recognize the lies, also know the lies, far from setting us free, will, indeed, enslave us. In fact, they already have.
