I agree that Obama has lied, but I'm not sure bringing up what he said before he was president is a tactical victory. You can't call him a "phony" like you can with Romney because he's already been president for a while now, and he hasn't really changed all that much. I'm sure you can do better than this.

Hey Dink-show me one piece of evidence that Romney is a phony. Obama has been challenged to do that a million times and has produced nothing but Stephie Cutter saying, "yeah Obama did lie and Romney did not".

What makes me most uncomfortable about Romeny is the way he says one thing in one place and antoehtr thing in another place. At the debate he said he would keep certain parts of Obamacare intact. Then after the debate, his capmaign says no they won't. Who's right? Is he a Severe Conservative? or will he be the guy who invades Iran and Syria to help the Syrian Al Qaedia rebels arm themselves to oust more governments? We don't know.

So Dink, you're saying that we also shouldn't look at all the promises he made while campaigning for president nor the fact that he didn't keep any of them.

When someone displays a pattern (either before, during or after being president) of lying then they are probably a liar and phony.

No, we absolutely should look at those things. But you can look at any senator voting in any direction on any number of bills with a thousand thigs in it and point to ti. The article is acting like Obama hasn't been president yet, that he's still campaigning for his first term. The fact is, he has a track record as president, so why bring up this weird halfling of a story from when he wasn't president, five years later?

You're entitled to your opinion, whatever it is, Dink. But you have missed the point of the article. To really thoroughly explore the subject for someone like you (Rip Van Winkle?) who appears not to be familiar with recent history would take a few pages. So let's hit the highlights.
First and foremost this phoney has promised transparency, bipartisanship, "not a red...and blue America, but...United States of America," etc., etc.
Second, the usual reason for outrage applies. Just suppose [insert the name of your favorite conservative or Republican] had said something similar.
Third, it's not merely a blatant lie (as opposed to a flip-flop, or an inelegant phrase, subject to interpretation), but it's delivered in a fake ghetto dialect

merely days after the vote was taken that he was present for, participated in, and on which he voted the WRONG way! The affrontery here is staggering. Are you so insensitive that this doesn't offend you?

So you count being consistently worthless, racist, a demogogue, etc as a plus?
When President Barack Obama and others on the left are not busy admonishing the rest of us to be "civil" in our discussions of political issues, they are busy letting loose insults, accusations and smears against those who dare to disagree with them.

Like so many people who have been beaten in a verbal encounter, and who can think of clever things to say the next day, after it is all over, President Obama, after his clear loss in his debate with Mitt Romney, called Governor Romney a "phony."

Innumerable facts, however, show that it is our Commander in Chief who is Phony...
