The hypocrisy of neosocialist Obamanites never fails to amaze me.
By now most people probably know President Obama lied yesterday during his speech when he said he met Boston teacher Robert Baroz. Obama held Mr. Baroz up as an example as to why Congress needed to pass his Jobs Bill. In so doing, he intimated that Mr. Baroz was out of work and the Jobs Bill would get Mr. Baroz back in the classroom. Of course, the two men never met. Mr. Baroz did sit in the front row during a press conference in the Rose Garden. (He may even have spent the night in a Holiday Inn Express). Furthermore, Mr. Baroz is not out of work.
Now, that’s not where the hypocrisy comes in. Instead, consider this snippet taken from the Boston Herald:
Baroz, who supports Obama and his efforts to restore the public sector, told the Herald yesterday he doesn’t mind if the president — or his speechwriters — took some liberties with the facts. It was all in aid of a higher truth, he said.
A higher truth? So, lying is acceptable if it is done while trying to get something you want? Does that mean those who claim GW lied need to apologize to him? If he lied, it was simply to get his higher truth realized, right?
Wait, should we be surprised? These are the same people who have lied consistently for decades. Consider:
- SNL’s Sarah Palin skit: “I can see Russia from my house.” They knew she didn’t say it, yet they pretended she did and then perpetuated that lie. (I can appreciate the humor in it. It was the perpetuation of the story that made it a lie).
- Lies about the 2000 election and Florida–ie Bush stole it and Jeb helped him.
- Constant creative (deceitful) interpretations of the Constitution–ie football players can’t pray voluntarily before a game.
- Made up facts in order to prove global warming.
I guess I’m not surprised after all.
