    A new piece in The New York Times Magazine reveals confirms that the Obama administration knowingly misled the public to pass the Iranian nuclear deal. Our president knew full well that Iranian leadership had not adopted “moderate” policies, but the notion was a politically useful one.



    When Hassan Rouhani was selected as the new president of Iran, he was heralded as a more tolerant kind of leader. TIME magazine referred to him as a “moderate politician” when he was voted runner up for 2015’s Person of the Year. (This is why that title deserves to be in quotes.)

    Yet, as the NYT piece notes, the Obama administration’s negotiations with Iran began well before President Rouhani and his advisors assumed leadership.

    National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes knew the narrative was more important than the truth. The NYT describes how this “storyteller” flowered the facts to gain public support.

    The fact that people just expect politicians to lie and downplay the problem with it when they do is the exact thing that allows it.

    Building up that Legacy, Jimmy Carter is loving it

    If it would lie about that who's to say he wouldn't lie about where he was born, lie about his Social Security Number, lie about his college degrees, lie about being a muslom, lie about being a homosexual, lie about not being a racist, lie about writing books, lie about being anti-christian, lie about caring about his country (assuming his country really is the US)

    Might be easier to do a list of when he was telling the truth, that would be pretty short

    Obama is a liar and the son of the father of it.

    If you like your plan, you can keep your plan. If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.
