Pre 2008 campaign, feel free to take any items from this list not listed above if you find that useful,

And this too, regarding Obama having nothing to do with Islam, blah blah, noting "Arabic" is not a religion,

I think the correct answer to "How Many Times Has Obama Lied?" is - -- - - How many stars are there in the sky!  I believe he would chock if he tried to tell the truth.

Comment by Toddy Littman on April 14, 2015 at 5:21pm

Love it Ruthann!

I'll add to the list of analogies to #HowManyTimesHasObamaLied with, "how many failed theories of Green House gas caused Global Warm..Er..Climate Ch...Er...Climate disruption...Er...That's right change....have their been?  Or, how many failed companies that the EPA dropped money into on the idea of an alternative energy source, or maybe we just use the amount of money lost on that, at 1 dollar a lie that's 500,000,000 right?  hahaha

I have great doubt Obama can ever tell the truth...His poor kids, probably should be taken away by social services....The irony! hahaha
