Derek Hunter stated the key words in understanding what Obama is doing when he said, "It was a shocking claim made more shocking by the fact that it was a lie and, as a sitting senator he knew it was a lie. But the audience didn't, and he knew that too."
That is the way Obama has operated from the beginning. Only if you are paying attention can you know that Obama will say anything in order to get elected. I have wondered why he even wanted to become president. Remember he often voted "present" instead of taking a stand on an issue when he was in the senate. My conclusion is that he enjoys campaigning, is an outwardly likeable person, and enjoys the "perks" of the office i.e.nice house, personal airplane, people to do his bidding so
