Obama’s lie list

I will have the most transparent administration in history. I will close Guantanamo within a year. I will not let Detroit go bankrupt. The sequester is not my proposal, it was Congress’.

I will cut the deficit in half by the end of my first term. I did not set a red line; the world did. If you like your health care plan, you can keep it. Seniors making less than $50,000 will not have to pay taxes.

I have never met my illegal immigrant uncle Onyango “Omar” Obama (2012). I did live with my uncle “Omar” for three weeks, while I was in law school (2013).

Is there anything, any subject that this president will not lie about?
