President Obama's Addiction to Lies

"We Lost By a Few Percentage Points in Texas?" Sorry, Mr. President, it was by about 10 percentage points, as WFAA-TV's Brad Watson pointed out on Monday, to the scorn of the Thugger-in-Chief.

And yesterday we heard about "Millionaires and Billionaires" (yet again) and "Collapsing Bridges."

Here's the video from Northern Virginia Community College, Annandale, Virginia:

The Wall Street Journal, in a Monday editorial, corrected the president on his "millionaires and billionaires" claim: "Obama targets the middle class while pretending to tax only the rich."

And lots of folks are picking up on the failed bridge dishonesty, including Ed Morrissey: "Video: Obama uses false bridge-collapse argument to argue for more taxes," and CBS News --- CBS News!! --- "Obama invokes bridge collapse in criticizing GOP budget plan."

Progressives lie.
Lying is the basic foundation of the progressive model for the socialist political economy. But it's not just top conservative blogs taking exception. The local Texas news channel grabbed some glory on Monday, but hey, even the folks are CBS News are getting tired of the deception.
