    Does He Lie?

    You lie? No. Barack Obama doesn't lie. He's too subtle for that. He . . . well, you judge.

    Obama said he would largely solve the insoluble cost problem of Obamacare by eliminating "hundreds of billions of dollars in waste and fraud" from Medicare.

    That's not a lie. That's not even deception. That's just an insult to our intelligence.

    Slickness wasn't fatal to "Slick Willie" Clinton because he possessed a winning, nearly irresistible charm.

    Obama's persona is more cool, distant, imperial. The charming scoundrel can get away with endless deception; the righteous redeemer cannot.

    Charles Krauthammer is one of the most perceptive writers of the day.

    Tooting my own horn here...

    I absolutely LOVE the fact that he pointed out that since there are laws stating that it's illegal to enter the US without a visa that there would be zero illegal aliens according to BHO's logic as I've been making the same arguement since the speech. :)

    Nice article, THANK YOU!
