You may recall that pResident Obama spoke of three former Presidents making prisoner swaps at the end of wars that took place on their watch, “much like this Bergdahl swap” he said convincingly.
CNN carried this quote, “This is what happens at the end of wars.”
Obama boasted Tuesday when he was asked about swapping American Army Sgt. Deserter for five vicious Taliban terrorists. “That was true for George Washington…That was true for Abraham Lincoln and that was true for FDR. That’s been true of every combat situation, that at some point, you make sure that you try to get your folks back, and that’s the right thing to do.”
Every Obama speech is fraught with lies and half-truths. He relies on his belief in the ignorance of his audience, and that Americans are too lazy and soft to recognize his dishonesty. When your record is abysmal, you can’t tell the truth.
Obama, hasn’t a clue on how to fix the economy. Instead, without ideas, he copied Teddy Roosevelt’s 100-year-old speech in Osawatomie. With Barack Obama, it’s always yesterday’s answers to today’s problems…and this is the man they told us was a genius. The president maintains that the rich get richer by making everyone poorer. Ah…bitterness and envy, the illegitimate stepchildren of hope and change.
A government shutdown looms. President Obama is demanding non-stop meetings between congressional leaders to resolve the crisis. “I will have my entire team available to work through the details of getting a deal done,” he declared.
The “entire team” does not include Obama himself. He’ll be in New York, hanging out with Al Sharpton.

During the official announcement of his presidential campaign in Chicago, then Senator Barack Obama said, “no amount of American lives can resolve the political disagreement that lies at the heart of someone else’s civil war.”
At the time Obama was speaking about his opposition to the war in Iraq, “Most of you know that I opposed this war from the start. I thought it was a tragic mistake,” Obama said to a crowd at the Springfield, Illinois town square on Feb. 10, 2007.
