“We arrived at the Oval Office for our 45-minute interview … on the morning of October 11th. … As we left the Oval Office, executive editor Eric Bates told Obama that he had asked his six-year-old if there was anything she wanted him to say to the president. … [S]he said, ‘Tell him: You can do it.’ Obama grinned. … ‘You know, kids have good instincts,’ Obama offered. ‘They look at the other guy and say, “Well, that’s a bullshitter, I can tell.”’”
Everyone knows after four years just what a “bullshitter” Obama is:
“As president, Barack Obama will close the detention facility at Guantanamo.”…Broken promise
“He will reject the Military Commissions Act, which allowed the U.S. to circumvent Geneva Conventions in the handling of detainees. He will develop a fair and thorough process based on the Uniform Code of Military Justice to distinguish between those prisoners who should be prosecuted for their crimes, those who can't be prosecuted but who can be held in a manner consistent with the laws of war, and those who should be released or transferred to their home countries.”…Broken promise
“Will use the power of the presidency to fight for an independent watchdog agency to oversee the investigation of congressional ethics violations so that the public can be assured that ethics complaints will be investigated.”…Broken promise
“I can make a firm pledge. Under my plan, no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase. Not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains taxes, not any of your taxes.”…Broken promi

Last night on Jay Leno he bullshitted his way through an interview with Jay telling the audience that Planned Parenthood offers mammograms..they do not and he was told they do not before. But still, he continues to bullshit.
The ultimate bullshit recently has been his lies regarding the Libya attack. They tried to sell some bullshit that our embassy was attacked because of a freakin video. Bullshit.
The effort they expended to repeat the lie is breathtaking. They lied at a memorial for the four dead Americans, in front of the flag-draped coffins. They lied at the United Nations, and on the Sunday morning talk shows, and, yes, on the David Letterman show as well.
Only when one of their subordinates refused to perjure himself before Congress did they begin to change their story, eventually excluding the video entirely.
But they still could not bring themselves to tell the truth. Obama claimed he had called the attack an act of terror all along, pointing to a statement in the Rose Garden on Sep. 12, but his reference to “acts of terror” did not refer specifically to Benghazi.
The new revelation that he had, in fact, described Benghazi as a premeditated attack that same day in an unaired CBS interview only makes the subsequent lies seem much worse.
Yes Mr. President, we all know a bullshitter when we see him and that man is you.
