PALM BEACH, Fla. – Rush Limbaugh, the top-rated radio host in America, is now calling President Obama “a serial liar” who is “delusional” and “pathological” in fabrications being told by his administration.
“Barack Obama is a serial liar, and I think it’s time to call him out on this,” Limbaugh said Wednesday afternoon.
His analysis began with the Obama administration’s claim the recent onslaught against the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, was in response to an anti-Muslim movie on YouTube.
Libyan President Mohamed Magarief said the film had “nothing to do” with the attack.
“Reaction should have been, if it was genuine, should have been six months earlier. So it was postponed until the 11th of September,” Magarief told NBC News. “They chose this date, 11th of September to carry a certain message.”
Limbaugh said, “They have lied to us for a week about this video. Obama went to the U.N. yesterday and made most of his speech or quite a large part of his speech about this video, which even now, nobody has ever seen. All they’re doing is promoting it. All they’re doing is giving others who want to be agitated by it an excuse to be.”
When pondering why Obama and his administration would lie, Limbaugh had a hard time coming up with an explanation.
“I’m not a liar. I can’t explain them,” he said.
“It’s pathological, it’s the same as trying to explain Bill Clinton. These people construct with all of their lies an actual reality they live in. I think they tell the lie so often – it’s the definition of a pathological liar, you believe the lies that you tell. It is a sickness. And this is just the latest illustration of Obama as a serial liar.”
Limbaugh then analyzed Obama’s economic claims, noting Obama on “60 Minutes” blamed his predecessor, President George W. Bush, for the rising U.S. debt.
“The fact is Obama is responsible for 5 and a half trillion dollars in debt in just four years,” he said.
“Bush had nothing to do with it. That doesn’t even count what’s coming with Obamacare. I’m not denying that Bush was a big spender, but the debt that we’ve got now, 5 and a half trillion dollars of it, took place in the last three and a half years with Obama at the helm. It’s his. He owns it, he broke it.”
Limbaugh said the U.S. is headed for an economic collapse if something doesn’t change:
“It’s difficult to pinpoint when, but it’s going to happen. This is unsustainable. This kind of spending, and this kind of debt and the debt service cannot continue and at the same time have a thriving and growing private-sector economy. Now Obama gets away with these statements which come fast and frequently, but there’s something not right about this. These lies just flow out of his mouth and off of his lips as naturally as a baby’s cries.”
He continued: “I don’t know if it’s purposeful, if he’s delusional or if it’s strategic. It could be a combination of those things. He’s running commercials in battleground states claiming that Romney’s tax plan would increase taxes on the middle class by $2,000. There’s nothing, there’s not a single thing in Romney’s tax plan that raises taxes on the middle class. Romney cut taxes by 20 percent. He doesn’t raise taxes on anybody. It’s Obama who’s going to be raising taxes. Obama is in effect, what he’s doing, is taking what his policies are going to be, his future policies, and what his policies have been and he’s simply saying that they’re Romney’s. It’s an artful attempt at … transference … you take what you’re doing and take what you’ve done and blame it on the other guys, as though you haven’t even been president for three and a half years. And you’ve got a supportive media out there helping to spread the lies.”
Limbaugh called Obama delusional with the president’s claim he has created some 4.5 million jobs since taking office in 2009.
“It’s absurd,” Limbaugh said. “The math doesn’t work out. There aren’t any jobs being created on a net basis. We’re losing jobs. There are more people unemployed today than there were when Obama took office. There are over 2 and half million fewer jobs to be had in this country since Obama took office. This idea that there’s job growth? That Obama’s created jobs? He wouldn’t know how to create a job if he had to. He wouldn’t know how to GET a job if he had to.
“You have to ignore all the people who’ve lost their jobs. You have to ignore all the people who have dropped out of the workforce. The net figure, when everything is factored in, the best I’ve been able to find is 1.3 million jobs lost. A universe of over 2 million jobs that have just gone away, not jobs that were filled, just jobs from the universe of jobs, the labor-force participation rate. It’s down by 2 million. And it’s even worse when you consider that in four years, the working population of the country has increased by 8 million or so.”
“Obama hasn’t created anything. What’s happened is destruction,” he concluded.
“So many Americans are literally fearful, literally scared of the future.”
President Obama’s campaign, with a good dose of help from the media, is pushing a claim that millionaire Mitt Romney is taxed at a “lower rate” than someone making $50,000 a year.
The claim, though, is open to debate. It only holds up in a particular scenario in which both income and all payroll taxes are counted.
The president’s campaign presumably is referring to Romney’s release last week of his 2011 tax returns, which showed he paid an effective tax rate of 14.1 percent.
This revelation, as might be expected, fueled a wave of campaign stump speeches and videos. The latest was an Obama Web video blasting Romney’s “strange take on tax fairness.” It included clips of people accusing Romney of paying a lower rate than “average” Americans. An accompanying campaign email said: “Mitt Romney admitted he thinks it’s fair that his $20 million income was taxed at a lower rate than someone making $50,000.”
IRS data, though, shows that Romney’s effective income tax rate — that’s what he pays as a percentage of his income once deductions and other benefits are factored in — is actually far higher than what most Americans pay.
And it’s certainly higher than what someone making $50,000 pays.
IRS data from 2010 shows someone making between $50,000 and $75,000 on average pays an effective rate of 7.8 percent. Even someone making between $100,000 and $200,000 pays a 12.1 percent rate — also lower than Romney’s.
So what is the Obama campaign referring to? There are a couple possibilities.
The campaign likely is trying to make the point that Romney’s income — at least the huge chunk of it that is derived from investments — is taxed at a 15 percent rate, while others who earn their money from a paycheck are taxed at marginal income rates going all the way up to 35 percent.
The latter percentage, though, comes down once deductions and exemptions are included. The Tax Foundation estimated in a report in January that Romney’s rate in 2010 — which was also about 14 percent — was higher than what 97 percent of Americans pay.
I’ve written about Michelle Obama’s “surrendered” law license several times – the last time in November 2009. We have both a President and First Lady who went through law school only to “voluntarily surrender” their license a few years later. To say that’s odd is an understatement. We are 40-some days away from the election. Let’s look at this again and start with Michelle and the ARDC Rule(s) under which she became inactive.
The Attorney Registration & Disciplinary Commission of the Supreme Court of Illinois (ARDC) is keeper of records. Sometime around the time Michelle’s license went inactive, the Rules of the ARDC changed.
As many Americans know by now, President Obama characterized himself as “just eye candy” during his guest slot on “The View.” Frankly, it was a triumph of artistic self-description.
The urban dictionary defines “eye candy” as “[s]omething purely aesthetically pleasing.” And indeed, the President is an attractive man. But that’s about it. Hence the aptness of the description.
Stereotypically, “eye candy” has often been a term used to designate a pretty but brainless younger woman on the arm of a rich or powerful older man — something to be admired as superficially pleasing, but little more. That’s precisely what we’ve got with the President. Unfortunately, he’s also the leader of the free world.
