While this article is meant in a form of seriousness, it is also unfortunately comic!
The following is a short list of ‘Presidential Lies’ I bumped across. Yes, I know it is not all-inclusive. In all actuality, you could probably look to any given president, or politician, and form a fairly substantial list.
It appears I’m Obama bashing, and to some extent, I admittedly am. I’m also ready to stand and bash any other president or politician who performs in the same manner. It is an issue that doesn’t just come from our current president and this is my way of saying that maybe we seriously need to wake up and pay a little more attention to what is happening around us, especially as we approach election season.
It points out, to me at least, just exactly how little many of us pay attention to things that we may feel don’t affect our lives directly when in actuality, they do. Sum up the lies and I guarantee you, you’ll find an effect, directly or indirectly, that changes the course of your life and the life of our great nation.
Just as an example, the very first one, “We were attacked (in the Gulf of Tonkin).” I was in the Gulf of Tonkin, and in Vietnam, partly as a direct result of this statement. Many others were as well and quite a number of us never got to come home such as I did!
