Bingo! Bullies are all talk, with action only when the opponent is little or insignificant in their eyes. When faced with someone "their own size," they generally run away or leave the battlefield bloody and bowed. Obama is just as you say. He lies when no one dares confront him--the Stafford Act which he threw at the audience in 2007 was one he voted against. As someone wrote earlier, he said those bad things about the Feds not using the Stafford Act because the Feds were RACIST, knowing his audience didn't know about HIS OWN VOTING record. In fact, this was one of the only votes he cast that wasn't "present."
