The Washington Post has come out and named Obama for what he is. Glenn Kessler does a great job pointing out that Obama gave a “phony accounting on the auto industry bailout.” Kessler awarded Obama “Three Pinocchios,” which results from some significant fibbing that rises to a level of significant concern
We take no view on whether the administration’s efforts on behalf of the automobile industry were a good or bad thing; that’s a matter for the editorial pages and eventually the historians. But we are interested in the facts the president cited to make his case.
What we found is one of the most misleading collections of assertions we have seen in a short presidential speech. Virtually every claim by the president regarding the auto industry needs an asterisk, just like the fine print in that too-good-to-be-true car loan.
Kessler’s article is an eye opener and very worthwhile to read in its entirety. It is assuring that reporters such as Glenn Kessler are investigating Barack Obama, his actions, and his assertions.
A prayer of President John Adams is inscribed in the front of the fireplace mantle in the White House State Dining Room. It appears that Barack Obama is not one of the Presidents John Adams had hoped for.
“I pray to heaven to bestow the best of blessings on this house and all that hereafter inhabit it. May none but honest and wise men ever rule under this roof.”
When the American people make a mistake, they can be counted on to fix that mistake.
