Rush Limbaugh made an interesting observation yesterday:
President Barack Obama was scorched Monday as a “sociopathic” liar and “lying con man” by radio host Rush for denying he misled the American public to get his signature health-care plan known as Obamacare passed.
During a news conference in Brisbane, Australia, Obama was asked by reporter Ed Henry of Fox News: “At your Burma townhall a couple of days ago, you tried to inspire young leaders by saying, ‘governments need to be held accountable, need to be responsive to the people.’ I wonder how you square that with your former adviser, Jonathan Gruber claiming you were not transparent about the health law because in his words the American people, the voters are stupid. Did you mislead Americans about the taxes, about keeping your plan in order to get the bill passed?”
“No, I did not,” Obama responded. “I just heard about this. I get well-briefed before I come out here. The fact that some adviser who never worked on our staff expressed an opinion that I completely disagree with in terms of the voters, is no reflection on the actual process that was run.”
Limbaugh, sounding incredulous, took direct aim at Obama’s answer, stating: “This is unbelievable. This little sound bite of 23 seconds may be more jam-packed with lies than any 23-second presidential sound bite I’ve ever played for you.”
Regarding Jonathan Gruber, Limbaugh said, “He was in meetings with Obama. Gruber has been bragging about them. Obama has talked about Gruber being in meetings. … He was not just a member of the staff, he was paid $400,000 alone just for this. … Gruber has made almost $6 million in government contracts, advising them on various things. … Gruber has his hands in advising the regime on amnesty, illegal immigration, how to do it, when to do it, what to do it and all that. The guy’s deep, he’s a rock star with these people.”
Welcome to the club, Rush. I’ve been saying this for years. Back in early 2011, I had this to say:
It’s mind boggling. Obama is not just detached. It’s far worse than that. He doesn’t give a freaking damn and I don’t think he is even capable of caring.
Barack Obama is a sociopath.
I believed it to the be true then, and I absolutely believe it now. The difference now is the degree of audacity. Obama has grown breathtakingly bold with his lies. Grandiose.
Again, let’s list some of the characteristics of a sociopath:
* Glibness/Superficial Charm
* Manipulative and Conning
* Grandiose Sense of Self
* Pathological Lying
* Lack of Remorse, Shame or Guilt
* Shallow Emotions
* Incapacity for Love
* Need for Stimulation
* Callousness/Lack of Empathy
* Poor Behavioral Controls/Impulsive Nature
* Early Behavior Problems/Juvenile Delinquency
It’s almost as if the author studied Obama personally. This was bad enough:
“The fact that some adviser who never worked on our staff expressed an opinion that I completely disagree with in terms of the voters, is no reflection on the actual process that was run.”
I don’t even know the guy!
We know that Gruber convinced Obama to include the personal mandate, we know that Gruber was an important person in the White House in 2009. We know that Obama “stole” ideas from Gruber as far back as 2006:[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s6yoHcOhF0U[/youtube]
Gruber was repeatedly referred to as an independent analyst when in fact Gruber was under contract to HHS all the while. We know that Gruber concluded that at least 5 million people would lose their plans.
Lie after lie after lie.
But here’s the single most significant statement:
When the president was asked whether he had intentionally misled the public in order to get the law passed, he replied: “No. I did not.”
It is the single biggest lie Obama has ever told. And that’s saying a lot. It’s bigger even than this one on June 15, 2009
“That means that no matter how we reform health care, we will keep this promise to the American people: If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor, period. If you like your health-care plan, you’ll be able to keep your health-care plan, period. No one will take it away, no matter what.”

Obama lied endlessly about Obamacare and then he flat out lied to entire press corps about being misleading. He looked them in the eyes and lied.
And, other than Ed Henry, they just sit there. They just freaking sit there and swallow.
Ron Fournier remarked that Obama has ‘Destroyed the Credibility of His Administration and Government Itself.’ Yes he has, but he’s not alone. The press has destroyed its credibility as well. It continues to largely ignore this issue, which everyone sane agrees would be a gigantic issue were this a Republican President and would receive non-stop coverage by the same networks that ignore it now. Barack Obama is an inveterate liar.[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NRifKEf0xr8[/youtube]
This is a scary time. Yes, the President is a sociopath and the press is unwilling to face it.[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q6S-_Dmr4ew[/youtube]
