You might wonder, “which one?”. Well, there are many to choose from like ObamaCare, “if you like your plan you can keep it”. Notice Harry Reid can call all the victims liars, but yet can’t defend the central lie to Obama’s signature issue of his residency.
Or maybe the one about “if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor, period.
Or maybe it is one of the related lies that ObamaCare is going to reduce the debt. Or maybe it is where he said we will save 2500 a year per family on healthcare.
Or maybe it was that string of yarns about Benghazi, claiming he called it terrorism before blaming an obscure video.
Or the recent declaration of not a smidgeon of corruption in IRS.
No, even those whoppers and others still do not rise the level of the biggest lie. But it is not even well hidden. It’s blatantly obvious in front of the public every day.
His oath is the big lie. To “faithfully execute the office“… and “to the best of my ability“. He he has broken both parts, which is the central premise of it. It makes the oath his biggest lie yet. Oh, maybe we will find something to rival it, but it will be tough to find something that central and important.
I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.
To the best of his ability, he defies the Constitution. The only thing he is willing to defend is himself and his political interests. He stood in front of a joint Congress in the SOTU and boldly declared he would circumvent Congress to a standing ovation. How much more defiant can one be? Since he had done exactly that countless times already, there was all the more reason to take him seriously.
Even Georgetown’s Jonathon Turley took issue with his conduct, in a hearing(3hr) in December.
“In fairness of Milbank, I was indeed arguing that President Obama had violated the Take Care Clause and was placing himself above the law in these instances.” – Turley said of his Decemnber testimony.
Five years into his residency, he announces to the nation that Congress is irrelevant. They applaud him. Turley later also expressed his reaction to that.
I think that we’ve become a nation of enablers. We are turning a blind eye to a fundamental change in our system. I think many people will come to loathe that they remained silent during this period.
TURLEY: I’m afraid this is beginning to border on a cult of personality for people on the left. I happen to agree with many of President Obama’s policies, but in our system it is often as important how you do something as what you do.
And I think that many people will look back at this period in history and see nothing but confusion as to why people remained so silent when the president asserted these types of unilateral actions. You have a president who is claiming the right to basically rewrite or ignore or negate federal laws. That is a dangerous thing. It has nothing to do with the policies; it has to do with politics.
…But what we’re seeing now is the usurpation of authority that’s unprecedented in this country. “
So you would think this biggest lie would be taken pretty seriously, getting quite a reaction. But it seems to be ignored. The one lie that needs addressed and ties to the other things he’s done, all the scandals, to the office and public, to the job itself. But the one everyone in Washington seems to willfully ignore.
To believe Obama now “requires the willing suspension of disbelief”.
“This whole thing is the biggest fairy tale I’ve ever seen.”
Rogue tyrants and dictators get resolutions and sanctions for their behavior. What response has Obama’s central lie gotten? If they are just waiting for the next one, we’ve already seen the biggest lie, upon which others are built.
If this isn’t the biggest one yet, then what is?
JAMES MONROE, MARCH 4, 1817, INAUGURAL ADDRESS:
“It is only when the people become ignorant and corrupt, when they degenerate into a populace, that they are incapable of exercising the sovereignty.
Usurpation is then an easy attainment, and an usurper soon found.
The people themselves become the willing instruments of their own debasement and ruin.”
