LIE OF THE YEAR

Tim Ross
January 21, 2013 Posted by Tim Ross MrTim29@ymail.com

Today, Barack Hussein Obama is inaugurated for a second term. One wonders if the press had done their job, would Mitt Romney be giving a speech today?  It’s not that far fetched of an idea.  President Obama lost 3.6 million votes and Republicans gained 1 million votes between 2008 and 2012.  That equals a 4.6 million (or three percent) swing of the votes cast.  Never before in history had such a dramatic swing away from the incumbent resulted in a re-election.

But another two-percent swing, and America would send Obama to his retirement party today and America would be saying President Romney this afternoon.  What could have swung the election?  Let’s start with fair reporting from the media.  It’s no secret that the media has a left-wing bias that strongly supports Democrat causes and continually helps Democrats during times of elections.  And never has that been more apparent than over the last four years, where the media promoted how handsome, fit, presidential and stylish Barack Obama is and ignored Obama’s scandals such as the growing national debt, the failure to pass a budget in over 1,500 days, the extended recession, horrible unemployment, the EPA-Lisa Jackson emails, hypocrisies, obfuscation, unconstitutional power grabs, Fast & Furious, Benghazi and so on and so forth.

This media bias has never before been so obvious as when PolitiFact’s “Lie of the Year,” which is awarded to Republicans seventy-five percent of the time, turned out to be the lie of the year.

PolitiFact, known for promoting Democrats and left-wing causes, chose as its 2012 “Lie of the Year” a Mitt Romney quote, they described as “brazenly false,” made during the presidential race… that President Obama “sold Chrysler to Italians who are going to build Jeeps in China.” Which we now know, ten weeks after the election, is proven 100 percent true.  Obama “saved” Chrysler and approved the sale to Fiat only to see Jeep outsource jobs to China.

The PolitiFact editors happened to choose the obscure fortuitous Romney quote over the blatant colossal Obama lie broadcast on The Late Show with David Letterman that blamed the 9/11 Benghazi terrorist attacks on an anti-Muslim YouTube video:

“Here’s what happened. Extremists and terrorists used this as an excuse to attack a variety of our embassies, including the consulate in Libya… As offensive as this video was and, obviously, we’ve denounced it and the United States government had nothing to do with it.”

And even if they couldn’t bring themselves to use that Obama lie, how could they pass up Obama’s lie told during the debate with Romney in which the President claimed that he called the death of four Americans in Benghazi “an act of terror” the day following the attack in his Rose Garden speech, when he clearly did not.  Obama called the attack a “terrible act,” a “brutal” act, “senseless violence,” and he called the attackers “killers” He never made mention to the attackers as terrorists, or the attack as terrorism or even as an act of terror.  The only reference in his speech that day to an “act of terror” was not in reference to the Benghazi attack, but rather how acts of terror have an impact on American life.

To clarify any confusion, Obama taped an interview for 60 Minutes hours after the Rose Garden speech in which he admitted that he did NOT use the word “terrorism”  earlier that day during his statement because “it’s too early to know exactly how this came about.”

As we all know now — and many knew at the time — a YouTube video, which barely had 700 hits at the time, had nothing — NOTHING — to do with the 9/11 terrorist attack in Benghazi that resulted in the death of four Americans.  Furthermore, we now know that the federal government stood by and watched… even instructed nearby Americans to stand down as the attack continued and Americans died

If ever there was a time to use “died” and “lied” in the same bumper sticker — Benghazi is it.

And if they just wanted to protect Obama, why couldn’t they post the Hillary Clinton “pants on fire” lie?

“Some have sought to justify this vicious behavior as a response to inflammatory material posted on the Internet. The United States deplores any intentional effort to denigrate the religious beliefs of others. Our commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation. But let me be clear: There is never any justification for violent acts of this kind.”

Or the Candy Crowley lie?

“He did in fact call it an ‘act of terror.’”

He, in fact, did not call “it” (the 9/11 Benghazi attack) an act of terror.  Again, he made reference to acts of terror and how they had an impact on American life.

As a result, the strong Romney momentum, just days before the election, came to a halt.  Rather than a massive slam dunk on the President, Romney had to back down appearing defeated.  No wonder Obama said, “Can you say that a little louder, Candy?” And the press that was reporting in the next room broke out into a loud applause. There was probably 1 million votes lost for Romney right there.

Why is the media not reporting these — and so many other lies associated with Obama — so that the public can express their collective outrage?  The answer is simple.  It’s because honest reporting might result in Republicans victory… and the Democrats and their partners in the media surely cannot have that.

    It doesn’t matter. None of it does. The only thing that matters to the masses that adore and worship Obama is that a black man is president and no one will be allowed to de-throne this king, No one! No matter what he does or what is said. Obama can do nothing wrong. I see the comments made by those who love Him. Today is his coronation and many have watched from afar in awe of his greatness. ‘They’ will not let you take Him from ‘Them’.

    Barb – I watched the inauguration this morning. Thought he made a great speech!

    Laquisha – Yes It was great! I was so touched to see him walking away from the podium area and keep looking back toward the mall and everyone that was there. He was so humble in that moment! Yup I cried!

    Donna Wolfe – Free at last free at last. Thank god almighty we are free at last. So sad it took the world this long to somewhat figure this out. One this day we need to remember and thank all those who are serving keeping us safe.

    Happy Inauguration, Liar in Chief.

      Read their response closely. They do two things to try and save their credibility… they stretch on their interpretation of the Romney ad (“that jobs in the United States were being moved to China, or perhaps that Jeep was moving its entire operations to China”) and they suggest it is not about fact as much as it is about intention (“Jeep INTENDED to build cars in China to sell in the Chinese market”)… the fact of the matter is that Jeeps will be made in China, Americans will be losing jobs, and the only media-organization(s) doubling down on this are two media-organization — PolitiFact and the Washington Times — that are consistently accused of left wing bias. Every other news organization — from MSN to Fox News to Huffington Post to Real Clear Politics to NPR — all suggest that PolitiFact made a colossal mistake. And the only morons buying what PolitiFact are selling are the hard left. Anybody with two brain cells knows that Romney was right… there are people in China that will be manufacturing Jeeps and not people in America. Hooray for saving GM and Chrysler! Now, what say you about the Benghazi lie?

    You mean Obama is still a liar?

  4. Tom Donelson on January 29, 2013 at 7:25 am

    I will add to Tim Comments, the President of Chrysler interview in the Detroit News. He made it clear that due to globalization that cars and Jeeps will be manufactured in China and he even added Russia! Case close. Romney was right and Kessler the Post wrong along with the various others fact checkers. Least we forget, Hillary and Obama lied while four Americans died. That sums up Benghazi!
