      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Obama and his Lying Issues

Recommended Posts

I'm going to go with Carter as the last honest president until someone can provide a better answer.

 

People may have other problems with him, but I think he was honest.

Which direction? Humor? Laughter is the best medicine, and we definitely need a lot of medicine.

 

I voted for Obama, and he had done plenty to disappoint...I can't defend some of the things he has done. Yes he has done some good things too.

 

The problem is this for anyone: who is going to replace him? The truth is that people don't get elected president by telling the truth. We don't want the truth, because the truth often sucks. Not that lying is justified, but if you run a campaign based on truth, and your opponent rides a shit-tsunami of lies and pukes rainbows, you will lose.

 

Who was the last really "honest" president?

 

jeez, now you've really gone over the edge.

 

how can you look uli in the eye tonight, as you read him his bedtime story?

Why do Republicans hate Chris Christie so much?

 

Ha he may have single handedly nuked the last republican presidential run by being "honest".

I have nothing against fairweather's call for consistency.

 

i hope his call is based on principles, not party lines.

 

every US president violates law, both domestic and international.

:tup:

Can't you see, I have nothing against fairweather's call for consistency?

 

Why do I hope his call is based on principles, not party lines?

 

How come every US president violates law, both domestic and international?

 

can you please rephrase that in the form of a question?

Is that better???

I agree, Carter was a stand-up guy. And I think Christie will be a great president in the same vein, although with more economic savvy.

 

It's bad enough that Obama tells all these lies. What sets him apart is the arrogance and contempt he displays for the truth as he tries to get out of his lies with yet more lies. "Uh, no, that's not what I said..."

yeah, but you hated him even well before the obamacare lies, so I wonder if this is a case of someone who finally found their excuse to latch onto?

 

I don't remember you ever getting this upset about GW

Yes, with each new lie Obama confirms what I have believed to be true about him all along. So what?

 

Bush never threatened my personal freedom in a big way--or stole my health insurance coverage.

Too many people too easily call someone a liar these days. Instead of giving someone the benefit of a doubt, or just first off say, well, maybe they misspoke, or simply made an honest mistake in what they said…

 

Whatever happened to a simple assumption that someone might be trying their best in difficult circumstances, being fallible as are the rest of us maybe making a mistake…

 

Of course these cyber hero's never do it to someone's face. Might get their asses kicked doing that.

 

I do miss the old days sometimes, when men would throw down, consequences be damned…

Well put. Still, I've yet to believe any high level politicians that can, will or do speak the "truth" are in the game.

Um, because he does it so often--and it's so plain to see he knew it wasn't true from the start re "you can keep you insurance, doctor..." He knew it was in the legislation even as he was saying it. Of course, you are one of the guys who was calling for GW to be put on trial and "burned." Yea, you're real civil. :rolleyes: Don't like my opinon? Don't read it.

Not gonna dignify this with a response, tough guy.

oh yeah "you will not lose your health coverage" is way worse than "they have WMD" or "I did not have sexual relations with....." Enough to impeach the guy? Some people have their underwear on too tight.

 

so what is this long history of lies?
