A prevaricator is a person who speaks falsely; a liar. In addition, a prevaricator is also a person who speaks so as to avoid the precise truth; a quibbler; an equivocator.
When a habitual liar tells a lie, they must continue that initial lie and support it with a continuous web of more falsehoods.
Barack Obama is like a child caught in the web of his own lies. He has told so many lies during his presidency that he does not even recognize that he is not telling the truth. In fact, in many instances he seems to believe he is actually telling the truth.
On a human level, this is sad. On an adult level, it is pathetic. On a presidential level, it is dangerous.
The president is still lying about the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, where terrorists with ties to al Qaeda murdered four Americans, including Chris Stevens, the U.S. Ambassador to Libya.
The president is trying to sweep the Benghazi murders under the rug, hoping that we will forget about his role in the incident until after the elections next Tuesday. However, the president may not get his way.
Two reports were released in the last four days revealing that not only has Obama been lying to us about what he knew about the Benghazi attack and when he knew it, but also that he actually had been doing nothing at all — except campaign.
On Sunday, October 28, Breitbart.com released this report:
REPORT: OBAMA WATCHED BENGHAZI ATTACK FROM ‘SITUATION ROOM’
Lt. Col. Tony Schafer told Fox News that sources were telling him that the President was watching the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya in real-time. Schafer told Fox that “only the President” could have ordered backup for the Americans who were under siege by terrorists so the President was most certainly informed of the situation as it was unfolding. “I hate to say this,” Schafer said, “according to my sources, yes, [the President] was one of those in the White House situation room in real-time watching this. And the question becomes, ‘What did the President do or not do in the moments he saw this unveiling?’ He — only he — could issue a directive to Secretary of Defense Panetta to do something.”
Note: For additional details, watch the Fox News video embedded in the Breitbart post.
On Tuesday, October 30, CNS News published an article stating that President Obama, Vice President Biden, and Secretary of Defense Panetta attended a previously arranged meeting 55 minutes after the State Department was notified of the attack.
If the president did not know about the attack, either the chain of command is broken or the president is derelict in his duties. Considering the president’s history of tall tales, failed policies, and failed leadership, it was the latter.
Secretary Panetta later tried to cover for the president with more lies, saying we cannot send in troops unless we know what is going on. It becomes quite clear in the CNS News article that they did indeed know exactly what was going on and did nothing.
Four years of failed policy and incompetence by Obama; four years of the failed leadership of Secretary of State Hilary Clinton; a plethora of lies, hollow hubris, and outright cowardice from the president all have resulted in one thing — four dead Americans.
The Obama administration has been one big dog-and-pony show of smoke-and-mirrors magic tricks, lies, corruption, and cronyism for four ruinous years.
America is suffering from a cancer. We can start healing our great nation by eliminating the malignancy that is Barack Hussein Obama and his cadre of crooks, cronies, communists, and terrorists.
As the president said, “I am ultimately responsible.” We must hold him accountable for four years of failure on November 6.
