    A lot is made of it when a president is caught in an obvious lie. But the fact is most of them have been caught exaggerating the truth if not flat out lying like a rug. Here are a few examples.

    We were attacked (in the Gulf of Tonkin).

    I am not a crook.

    GHW Bush:
    Read my lips -- No new taxes.

    I did not have sex with that woman... (Miss Lewinski)

    GW Bush:
    Iraq has weapons of mass destruction.

    I will have the most transparent administration in history.
    The stimulus will fund shovel-ready jobs.
    I am focused like a laser on creating jobs.
    The IRS is not targeting anyone.
    It was a spontaneous riot about a movie.
    If I had a son.
    I will put an end to the type of politics that "breeds division, conflict and cynicism."
    You didn't build that!
    I will restore trust in Government.
    The Cambridge cops acted stupidly.
    The public will have five days to look at every bill that lands on my desk.
    It's not my red line -- it is the world's red line.
    Whistle blowers will be protected in my administration.
    We got back every dime we used to rescue the banks and auto companies, with interest.
    I am not spying on American citizens.
    ObamaCare will be good for America.
    You can keep your family doctor.
    Premiums will be lowered by $2500.
    If you like it, you can keep your current healthcare plan.
    It's just like shopping at Amazon.
    I knew nothing about "Fast and Furious" gunrunning to Mexican drug cartels.
    I knew nothing about IRS targeting conservative groups.
    I knew nothing about what happened in Benghazi.
    I have never my uncle from Kenya who is in the country illegally and that was arrested and told to leave the country over 20 years ago.
    And, I have never lived with that uncle. (He finally admitted today, 12-05-2013, that he DID know his uncle and that he DID live with him).
    And the biggest one of all: "I, Barrack Hussein Obama, pledge to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America."

    I couldn't put this in the humor forum, I don't find anything humorous about it.MM

    Only one comment, otherwise I totally agree. So Damn Insane, the dictator of Iraq, used chemical weapons on Iran when we still considered him a friend. Later he used them on the Kurds in disputed territory of Northern Iraq. Those are documented facts. Whether or not he actually ever had any working development of Nuclear weapons is anyone's guess. Probably not to any significant point.
