A List Of 23 Famous Obama Quotes That Turned Out To Be Broken Promises Or Cold-Hearted Lies
November 19th, 2013
How many lies can one president tell and still retain any credibility?Â What you are about to see is absolutely astounding.Â It is a long list of important promises that Barack Obama has broken since he has been president.Â If he had only told a few lies, perhaps the American people would be willing to overlook that.Â After all, pretty much all of our politicians our liars.Â Unfortunately, many of the lies that Obama has told appear to have been quite cold-hearted in nature.Â For example, Barack Obama repeatedly made the promise that âyou will be able to keep your health care planâ under Obamacare.Â But now we are learning that he knew that this was a lie all along.Â Not only that, the Democrats in Congress knew that this was a lie all along too.Â In fact, U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a Democrat,Â said the followingÂ when she was asked about Obamaâs promise to the American people recently: âHe shouldâve just been specific. No, we all knew.âÂ You can see video of her making this statementÂ right here.Â The truth is that they all knew that millions upon millions of Americans would lose their current health care policies under Obamacare.Â They deliberately lied just so that they could get the law passed.
And of course this is far from the only major lie that Obama has told in recent years.Â The following is a list of 23 famous Obama quotes that turned out to be broken promises or cold-hearted liesâŚ
