Obama's 'Vigorous, Sharp Debate' Skirts the Truth
Barack Obama has now made it clear in a interview with CBS and 60 Minutes that lying to the American public is part and parcel of his presidential campaign.
There’s one problem: you won’t ever see and hear what Obama said, because 60 Minutes a disreputable show that masquerades as a “news outlet”, has joined the legion of media outlets that protect Obama by editing information so Obama is reelected.
In a recent interview with 60 Minutes, interviewer Steve Kroft, Obama was asked, "Look, the fact-checkers have had problems with the ads on both sides and say they've been misleading and in some cases just not true. Does that disturb you?"
Obama couldn’t help himself; he told the truth:
Do we see sometimes us going overboard in our campaign, are there mistakes that are made, areas where there is no doubt somebody could dispute how we are presenting things? You know, that happens in politics.
In other words, yeah, we lied. Get over it.
Then Kroft followed up: “Aren't the American [public] entitled to the truth? Or a better version of it?”
The truth of the matter is, most of the time we're having a vigorous debate about a vision for the country. And, you know, there's a lot at stake in this election. So is it going to be sharp sometimes? Absolutely. But will the American people ultimately have a good sense of where I want to take the country and where Gov. Romney takes the country? I think they will.
This is another barefaced admission that Obama lies at will – a “vigorous debate” … “going to be sharp.” So now in the name of vigorous debate words will be sharp? When someone is accused of sharp practices, it usually means skirting the truth, or outright lying.
But, of course, these clear admissions of how Obama lies with no conscience were left on the editing room floor.
For 60 Minutes to function as shills for Obama is unsurprising; they have been Democratic Party hacks for decades. The real story here is Obama’s own admission that he is a liar, and that, despite polls saying he is personally popular, the public should know that this is a man of very little character.
