9780062347503: You Lie!: The Evasions, Omissions, Fabrications, Frauds, and Outright Falsehoods of Barack Obama

A devastating catalog of Barack Obama’s numerous evasions, misleading statements and blatant lies, from statements in his national bestseller Dreams from My Father to “You can keep your health plan,” PolitiFact’s 2013 “Lie of the Year.”

During President Obama’s address to Congress in November 2009, Representative Joe Wilson of South Carolina shouted, “You lie!” As Jack Cashill details, the president has been lying about his personal history and his political philosophy from the beginning of his political career. Yet throughout his meteoric rise and the first five years of his presidency, the liberal media turned a blind eye to his numerous evasions, contradictions, misstatements, deceptions, untruths, and outright falsehoods.

It wasn’t until the disastrous Obamacare rollout that the president’s lies caught up with him. Finally, it was impossible even for the mainstream media to ignore the president’s repeated assertions that all Americans could keep their health care plans and family doctors if they so chose. In You Lie! conservative journalist and author Jack Cashill provides a devastating compendium of the president’s false and misleading statements on matters great and small, from the deliberate distortions in his celebrated memoir, Dreams from My Father, to his rise to the White House and his years as president.

From the Back Cover:

A devastating compendium of the president's false and misleading statements on matters great and small

In November 2009, after listening to President Obama read a litany of impossible health care promises—including the now-famous "Nothing in our plan requires you to change what you have"—Representative Joe Wilson of South Carolina vehemently shouted, "You lie!"

Wilson was roundly chastised by both parties. But he was ultimately proved right. Obama was lying—to Congress, to the press, and to the American people. And not just about health care, but about very nearly everything.

In fact, Barack Obama has been lying about his personal history and his political philosophy since he first emerged on the political scene in 1995. But throughout his meteoric rise and the first five years of his presidency, the media turned a blind eye.

Now, in You Lie!, journalist and author Jack Cashill provides an authoritative and entertaining guide to Barack Obama's numerous evasions, contradictions, misstatements, deceptions, untruths, and outright falsehoods, beginning with the deliberate distortions in Dreams from My Father and continuing through his political career and his years in the White House.

Obama's lying knows no bounds. Some of the boldest include

  • "Over the next two years, this plan will save or create 3.5 million jobs."
  • "I intend to close Guantánamo, and I will follow through on that."
  • "This administration has done more for the security of the state of Israel than any previous administration."
  • "Under our plan, no federal dollars will be used to fund abortions, and federal conscience laws will remain in place."
  • "Transparency and the rule of law will be the touchstones of this presidency."
  • And, of course, "If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor. Period."

It wasn't until the disastrous Obamacare rollout in late 2013 that the president's lies caught up with him. Finally, it was impossible even for mainstream media to ignore his repeated (untrue) assertions that Americans could keep their health care plans and family doctors if they wanted—a patently false assurance that would swiftly earn the dubious distinction of PolitiFact's "Lie of the Year."

Either the president knew all along, or he was so out of touch with his own health care law that he was as surprised to learn the truth as the rest of us. Given the choice of calling him a liar or a fool, the liberal press went with "liar." Not surprisingly, no one apologized to Joe Wilson.
