PolitiFact awarded Barry Obamboozler’s repeated promise, “If you like your health care plan, you can keep it,” Lie of the Year for 2013. But if those unbiased PolitiFact reporters had been paying attention in 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012, Barry Obamboozler could have been awarded Lie of the Year every year of his Presidency. At least Barry is finally receiving the recognition he so deserves.

Lie of the Year. Congratulations, Mr. President. We’re so proud of you. Period.

Despite GOPeer gerrymandering to fulfill their 'seats to votes' tactic

..and despite their 2009 Astroturf grassroots townhall kamikaze mission midterm wins...

...which now has their tea party monster eating its own

..and with seniors turning their noses up on the GOP in record numbers due to asinine policy stances on retirement security and GOPeer desire to dismantle Medicare

May 2014 find government legislators closer to getting back to logical bipartisan negotiation...find more citizens benefitting from their contributions to, and compensation from, positive roles in US society

..find me toes in sand/drink in hand more this year than last

...Peace and Good Will...spread it around

"and with seniors turning their noses up on the GOP in record numbers"

From Pew Research;

2008 GOP voter support

ages 50-64 45% R ages 50-64 45% D

age 65+ 46% R age 65+ 44% D

2012

ages 50-64 51% R ages 50-64 41% D

age 65+ 54% R age 65+ 38% D

The older folks voted R in the majority in 2012 up 10% and 16% respectively over 2008. The turned up noses seem to be pointed at the Dems!

Young folks are also turning up their noses at Obama in droves. Where support once ran into the 60% range, the majority of Millennials now oppose Obama.

From USA Today,

--Forty-nine percent of adults age 18-34 disapprove of the job Obama is doing as president, and 45% approve, according to a Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll released last week.

--A Harvard Institute of Politics poll published earlier this month found that Obama's approval rating with 18- to 29-year-olds now stands at 41%, a dramatic 11-point drop from April. Fifty-four percent said they disapprove of the president's performance. That poll has a margin of error of +/- 2.1 percentage points.

--In a Quinnipiac University poll conducted from Dec. 3 to 9, 41% approve and 49% disapprove of his performance among the 18-to-29 age group.

I would think support for Obama is strong among the very poor and the very rich as Obama's policies have benefited those groups over the middle class.

Denial is unfortunately a reasonable tag for this president and administration.

Spending almost a billion $ on the healthcare website, when a couple of techies put most of it together in a week. Some estimates say it could have been done for $2-3 million, tops.

But, no one is accountable in this administration, even though most experts say the website still doesn't protect personal data.

WVExpat has laid down the smack on the poll numbers so it saves me the trouble, thanks.

For years the American people REJECTED his individual agendas when polled, like Obamacare Never had more than around 40% approval, but people still LIKED Obama the MAN.

Mostly they WANTED to see the first black president succeed.

But Obamacare was the straw that broke the Camels back, so to speak. The WORST SCENARIOS that the Right put forth for the past four years came TRUE!

And how did Nobama handle it? HE LIED THROUGH HIS TEETH!!!

THAT is the problem! Politicians NEVER seem to learn that leason from Nixon ("I am not a crook") to George H. W. Bush ("Read my lips--no new taxes!" to Bill "BJ" Clinton ("I did NOT have sex with that woman!").

He mantra FOREVER will, like Clinton, be remembered by his biggest lie "If you like your insurance, you can keep it!"

EVEN WORSE, eventually Clinton, Nixon, et al ADMITTED they LIED and ask for forgiveness.

Barry the Brainless EGO is so effin BIG, he LIED about the LYING! And then LIED about the LYING about the LYING!!!

"You misunderstood me"!! Then even worse, "Well of course I didn't mean if your insurance company drops you, that is not my fault!""

YES, it IS!! The government set up new standards such that insurance companies have to offer full coverage of birth control and pre-existing condition coverage, etc FORCING them to DROP their affordable policies and replace them with coverage which MOST PEOPLE did NOT NEED at much HIGHER PRICES!!!

YES YOU BUILT THIS, Mr. President!

And THEN you LIED and continue LYING to this day.

You SUX!!!

So THIS POLL I think is the most DAMAGING to Obama:

" WASHINGTON, Nov 25 (Reuters) - A growing number of Americans doubt President Barack Obama's ability to manage the nation, according to a CNN/ORC poll released on Monday that reflects the possible larger impact of his administration's fumbled rollout of its healthcare law.

The poll also found that 53 percent of those polled said Obama is not honest or trustworthy, marking the first time that the CNN/ORC polling found a clear majority questioning the president's integrity, CNN said.

Forty percent of the 843 U.S. adults surveyed in the telephone poll early last week said Obama can manage the government effectively, down 12 percentage points from June."

Damaging because going FORWARD, FEW will trust anything ELSE he proposes like Immigration Reform.

So you LIED to me for 4 years about Obamascam, NOW you want to believe you that you are telling the TRUTH about Immigration Reform or IRAN nuclear disarmament agreements???

In Barry's mind, it was a great year.

Lots of golf, numerous vacations. Yucking it up with the hot Danish prime minister in Africa. (Who cares what Michelle thinks.)

.....Total Incompetence

Senator Hillary Clinton (D, NY), Oct 10, 2002: "In the four years since the inspectors left, intelligence reports show that Saddam Hussein has worked to rebuild his chemical and biological weapons stock, his missile delivery capability, and his nuclear program. He has also given aid, comfort, and sanctuary to terrorists, including al Qaeda members ... It is clear, however, that if left unchecked, Saddam Hussein will continue to increase his capacity to wage biological and chemical warfare, and will keep trying to develop nuclear weapons."

oldman, are you saying Hillary was cheated out of the Lie of the Year award in 2002? LOL

Funny how Presidents have all that extra time to take vacations and play golf! Kind of like the CEO World......You would think that running a country with a 17 trillion dollar deficit would require 12 hours per day for 6 days a week.....

caltrans, don’t argue with us. Argue with your left-leaning fact checker PolitiFact. They’re the ones who definitively established Barry Obamboozler Liar of the Year.

Enjoy your Liar of the Year title, Barry, because YOU built that.
