 Obama takes one last look in the mirror before going out to take the oath of office.  

 

How many lies can one president tell and still retain any credibility?  What  you are about to see is absolutely astounding.  It is a long list of important  promises that Barack Obama has broken since he has been president.  If he had  only told a few lies, perhaps the American people would be willing to overlook  that.  After all, pretty much all of our politicians our liars.  Unfortunately,  many of the lies that Obama has told appear to have been quite cold-hearted in  nature.  For example, Barack Obama repeatedly made the promise that “you will be able to keep your  health care plan” under Obamacare.  But now we are learning that he knew  that this was a lie all along.  Not only that, the Democrats in Congress knew  that this was a lie all along too.  In fact, U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a  Democrat, said  the following when she was asked about Obama’s promise to the American  people recently: “He should’ve just been specific. No, we all knew.”  You  can see video of her making this statement right here.  The  truth is that they all knew that millions upon millions of Americans would lose  their current health care policies under Obamacare.  They deliberately lied  just  so that they could get the law passed.

And of course this is far from the only major lie that Obama has told in  recent years.  The following is a list of 23 famous Obama quotes that turned  out  to be broken promises or cold-hearted lies…

#1 “If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor. Period. If you  like your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan.  Period. No one will take it away. No matter what.”

#2 “My administration is committed to creating an unprecedented level of openness  in government.”

#3 “We agree on reforms that will finally reduce the costs of health care. Families  will save on their premiums…”

#4 “I don’t want to pit Red America against Blue America. I want to be the  president
 of the United States of America.”

#5 “We’ve got shovel-ready projects all across the country that governors and  mayors are pleading to fund. And the minute we can get those investments to the  state level, jobs are going to be created.”

#6 “And we will pursue the housing plan I’m outlining today. And through this plan,  we will help between 7 and 9 million families restructure or refinance their  mortgages so they can afford—avoid foreclosure.”

#7 “I will sign a universal health-care bill into law by the end of my first term  as president that will cover every American and cut the cost of a typical  family’s premium by up to $2,500 a year.”

#8 “We reject the use of national security letters to spy on citizens who are not  suspected of a crime.”

#9 “For people with insurance, the only impact of the health-care law is that  their insurance is stronger, better, and more secure than it was before. Full  stop. That’s it. They don’t have to worry about anything else.”

#10 “We will close the detention camp in Guantanamo Bay, the location of so many of  the worst constitutional abuses in recent years.”

#11 “Allow Americans to buy their medicines from other developed countries if the  drugs are safe and prices are lower outside the U.S.”

#12 “We will revisit the Patriot Act and overturn unconstitutional executive  decisions issued during the past eight years.”

#13 “Will ensure that federal contracts over $25,000 are competitively bid.”

#14 “We reject sweeping claims of ‘inherent’ presidential power.”

#15 “Will eliminate all income taxation of seniors making less than $50,000 per  year. This will eliminate taxes for 7 million seniors — saving them an average  of $1,400 a year– and will also mean that 27 million seniors will not need to  file an income tax return at all.”

#16 “We support constitutional protections and judicial oversight on any  surveillance program involving Americans.”

#17 “If we have  not gotten our troops out by the time I am president, it is the first thing I  will do.  I will get our troops home, we will end this war.  You can take that  to the bank.”

#18 “Will not sign any non-emergency bill without giving the American public an  opportunity to review and comment on the White House website for five  days.”

#19 “The President does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally  authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an  actual or imminent threat to the nation.”

#20 “We have a choice in this country. We can accept a politics that breeds division  and conflict and cynicism…. That is one option. Or, at this moment, in this  election, we can come together and say, ‘Not this time….’”

#21 “We’ve got to spend some money now to pull us out of this recession. But as soon  as we’re out of this recession, we’ve got to get serious about starting to live  within our means, instead of leaving debt for our children and our  grandchildren  and our great-grandchildren.”

#22 “[T]oday I’m pledging to cut the deficit we inherited in half by the end of my  first term in office. This will not be easy. It will require us to make  difficult decisions and face challenges we’ve long neglected. But I refuse to  leave our children with a debt that they cannot repay – and that means taking  responsibility right now, in this administration, for getting our spending  under  control.”

#23 “I, Barack Hussein Obama, do solemnly swear that I will execute the office of  president of the United States faithfully, and will to the best of my ability,  preserve, protect, and defend the constitution of the United  States.

 

What a sad commentary to the heritage of this once great nation!

I seek first the kingdom of Christ because everything else in this world is perishing. All that I have is from God who is always faithful. I have worked hard all my life and will continue as long as God lends me breath. The mistakes and bad judgments I made in my life all stemmed from me trying to work things out by myself. I have learned the hard way that the victory over all of my problems and the answers to all of my desires lie solely in my Savior, Jesus Christ. It is now my desire to share the words that God gives me to encourage and give hope to others who need the strength that only faith in Christ can give.
