Skip to comments.If the leader of the free world can lie with such impunity we are doomed

Earlier this week in his State of the Union address President Obama made some observations on climate change so brimming with falsehoods I'm surprised his nose didn't fall off.
It really doesn't matter where he himself was deliberately lying or whether he was merely lending the gravitas of his office to the deliberate lies of others. The point is that the President of the USA has access to any number of fact checkers and advisers and if he stands up and addresses the nation with a farrago of complete untruths then the buck stops with him.
This dissembling and mendacity becomes all the more culpable when it forms the basis of major public policy decisions which will have a serious impact on people's lives in the US and beyond.

0bama is ANYTHING but a leader and he abhors a free society!
False premise that O is the leader of the free world. Can’t get past that.
We are doomed.
His sociopathy appears on observation to either be linked to (or just fits seamlessly with) his hatred of America and those of European ancestry.
He doesn't just hate the truth, he likes flaunting his dishonesty. It's one of his many ways of sticking it to the man (i.e. Whitey).
The UK is infested even more than the US with socialists. The UK Telegraph should start its education of the public about socialism and the triumph of ideology over facts, logic and truth and it could start with the truth about Fabian Socialists, the particularly vile form of socialist found in the elites of the UK.
Obama lies because that is how the mind of a liberal (er, now “progressive”) works. The lie is formed to support and advance the ideological agenda. They first lie to themselves, they lie to their friends and they lie to their family. In fact, they are enemies of the truth whenever the truth impedes the greater agenda.
This is the exact pathology of the Obama lies. In the Progressive World, truth is malleable and plastic. Truth is molded by ideology. Truth is whatever it needs to be at the moment.
his kind of fact checkers.. more likely, flak chuckers (some of his ideological parents)..
Ironic that the only newspaper that does not immediately put kneepads on its staff at the mere mention of the annointed one’s name is in the socialistic UK.
Any person with open eyes knows this has nothign to do with climate, but is all about the draconian control of industry, energy production and ultimately, individuals.
I think that's what all these ridiculous vacations are all about. Giving us the finger.
To call Hussein a leader of the free world is as wrong as is to call the US a free country, especially after what he has done to it.
A breyte deye hob’n!!!!!!!!
It is doubly tragic that while conservatives in and out of the U.S. can see the destruction being wrought by the Obama presidency and his penchant for arrogantly delivered mendacity whenever he speaks but most Americans just see The First Black President. The symbol. While they may not like where the nation seems to going they very much want to give The First Black President every benefit of the doubt, blame others - mostly Republicans - for his failures and pretend that he is actually doing a good job. This kind of subtle patronizing of Obama by guilty whites, Latinos and 99.8% of black voters is well understood by Obama, Axlerod, Jarrett and the cadre that advises the president. The result is the sometimes near criticism-free Obama administration that is wrecking our economy and much more.
Teflon President with asbestos pants.
A problem for the USA is that 50% + or - of the population have the independence to be societal sheep but not the smarts to see the wolves among them.
The “FREE WORLD” doesn’t have a leader.
