The old joke goes, "How do you know a politician is lying? His lips are moving."

Think Obamacare. "You can keep your plan and your doctor." The administration knew this was not true and continued the farce.

Think Benghazi. "It was a video that incited the attack." The administration knew at the time that it was a terrorist attack and continued citing the video explanation for a week.

Think this promise: "When I am elected president I will cut the debt in half by the end of my first term." How many trillions did he add? Right.

Think NSA snooping. "The NS A won't be listening to your phone calls or reading your emails." Right.

Think the IRS targeting conservative political groups. "This was only one office in Cincinnati." Right.

Think stimulus money. "This will provide shovel ready jobs." Right.

Think operation Fast and Furious. "We didn't sell guns to criminals" One agent died. Right.

Think the automobile bailout. "We saved the auto industry." Secured creditors were treated worse than the unsecured ones. Dealerships closed, thousands lost their jobs and the American people lost money on the deal. Good plan. Right.

Think, "When I am president, I will go line by line to make sure that we are not spending money unwisely." The stimulus package was spent on removing tattoos, studying gas emission in cows, helping Indonesians get master's degrees and providing money for a neon sign museum in Las Vegas. Right.

Think, "I will make this the most transparent administration." Right. We can see right through the present administration, and we don't like it.
