At Thursday’s press briefing, White House spokesman Jay Carney told reporters that the president had indeed stayed with his uncle Omar Obama while a student at Harvard Law School. The question arose because Uncle Omar had testified to that fact at a deportation hearing, while the White House had previously denied that the two men had ever met.

Carney’s explanation: nobody at the White House spoke to the president about it, and no one had asked him in the past. Weird, huh?

    Wouldn’t it just be easier to report on the times that he tells the truth?

    • NachoCheese (D)

      well then there would be no news

        I would LOL, but my stomach hurts.

    • arttie

      The staff is used to explaining convoluted responses to the lies. They would be completely clueless dealing with the truth.

    • http://twitter.com/THE_DAILY_BLEAT VACUOUS CIPHER

      That time he told the truth is well-documented.

    • Ty in TX ✓ᵇᵒⁿᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      At this point, he’d have to comment on things that are stupidly obvious to be held credible by me and I’m thinking most of us here. “The Sky’s blue. Water’s wet. Pain hurts.” Anything else and we’d look into it ourselves on the safe assumption he’s lying.

    • Worship Dancer

      wait he told the truth? WHEN? do you have a link?

    The question should be; If Obama lied about this Minor Thing, why should he be trusted on anything major?

      Especially since he lied about the most intrusive piece of legislation in the last 100 years too.

      • tops116 ✓Quipper

        Between now and Election Night 2014, Democrats need to be repeatedly told: “Obama lied, healthcare plans died.”

          And more. We still don’t know the full story about Benghazi.

    • Ty in TX ✓ᵇᵒⁿᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      And this isn’t the only minor thing he’s lied about. It’s so habitual with this guy. Even when the truth is some minor silly thing like old girlfriends….nope not completely accurate.

      His autobiography is after-all a fictional account of his life.

    Lying is a resume enhancement to liberals. Nothing new here.

      Except that in Obama’s case, it is not lying,
      it is taquiyya .

    So when the WH hoodlum lived with his drunkelunkel , did he know that the drunkelunkel is an illegal alien , who is on taxpayer dole, pays no taxes and uses stolen IDs , just like the olivantee, another family moocher ?

  • TJ

    When he was living with his uncle some say he was lying to be from Kenya.

    • Worship Dancer

      are you SURE he was LYING by saying he was from Kenya? i remember his Kenyan grandma stating that she held him in her arms at the KENYAN hospital on the day he was born.

      • nc ✓s & balances

        There is a theory that he actually was born in Hawaii but faked records to show he was born in Kenya so he could get a foreign student scholarship, or something. This is supposed to be one reason why he won’t release his college records. Who knows where the truth really lies?

        • Worship Dancer

            With this bunch the smart move is to hedge all bets.

  • nc ✓s & balances

    I’ve been saying this since the news broke yesterday – even if you accept Carney’s stupid account, why wouldn’t BHO come forward in 2011 and correct the record? Wouldn’t ANYONE?

    Unless, of course, there was an election coming up and there was something to hide. WHY ELSE?

    • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil ✓Mate
      • nc ✓s & balances

        Not buying it. Roger Clinton and Billy Carter didn’t harm any elections.

        Plus, the “story” was BHO crashed with uncle for a few weeks in the 70’s (or the 80’s, depending which account you read – really?) while his “apartment was getting ready.”

        What does that have to do with his uncle being drunk decades later?

        This story is a flippin’ mess.

          It’s no more of a mess than never seeing any of his college records, his applications for admissions, possible foreign scholarships and the like.

          I don’t think the story would have hurt his election chances, since his voters didn’t care that he allowed a US Ambassador to be tortured and killed. Keep in mind that we really didn’t know just how effed up Roger and Billy were until well after those other elections.

          In the big scheme of things, this one is on my list of non-scandals. I think Brian Terry’s family would agree.

          • nc ✓s & balances

            But why lie about something so simple? If anything, it seemed curious at the time that BHO would have “never met” a relative when he has so precious few of them.

            This is a screaming example of “it’s not the crime, it’s the cover up.” WHY THE NEED TO LIE? It really bugs me.

          • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil ✓Mate

            OK. Step away from the monitor. Unplug the computer and take a day off.

            He can’t help but lie because he’s a sociopath. To him, that lie was no larger or smaller than an Ambassador being killed because of a video or telling people their health care would be great, all the while he knew he was destroying it.

            To him, your life or mine is no more consequential than a bug.

    Has anyone bothered to ask Uncle Onyango why his nephew lied about knowing him? And why he himself kept silent about the lie for the last two years?

    • World B. Free

      FOX News just showed a clip of Jesse Watters trying to approach Uncle O.O. from back in February. The uncle wouldn’t talk, asked him to leave the store where he was working, and threatened to call the cops.

      • nc ✓s & balances

        And no other media type thought THAT was newsworthy?

      • CLEmom

        I’m impressed his uncle actually works in a store.
        That’s more real-life experience than Obama…

      Someone should ask Uncle O’liar if Obama actually graduated from Harvard law school. I can’t believe Obama can actually pass the bar without a teleprompter. LOL!!!! He had to surrender his law license, possibly the record shown that someone took the test for him. Hmmm…..

    Ah, once again liberals find themselves in that wonderful quandary: either Obama is a compulsive liar or he’s so stupid that he remember worth a damn. Well, liberals, just remember: those two options aren’t mutually exclusive. Feel better? No? Good.

    What a surprise, Obama an incessant liar. Isn’t that a profile of a sociopath???

        If Obama’s mouth is moving and sound comes out, then he is lying.

  • Maxx

    He has to lie about his roommate?

    I wouldn’t want to be anywhere near Obama’s closet when it opens. It would be like a graveyard in the living room, what with all those skeletons but yeah, I get it. We’ll all know WHO he was and is about eight months AFTER he leaves the White House thanks to those liberal media “bloodhounds.”

      By that time there will be so many versions of the “truth” out it’ll be like the Kennedy assassination. Impossible to separate wheat from chaff.

  • Not The Penguin

    This isn’t funny. Not trivial. There’s a liar in the White House. Along with this entire administration, the Dems in the Senate and the House. Not a shred of integrity amongst them. And certainly not one thought with regard to what’s best for the American people.

  • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    “Barbra Streisand” much?

    I mean, who cares? So you stayed with Uncle Omar– big deal! You know, we might even have believed that you probably never would have doubted, nor asked him about, his immigration status– had it not been for your well-deserved reputation for mendacity and evasion.

    Now we want to know why “the WH” felt the need to cover it up– just like we don’t want to let Barbra off either– what are they afraid we’d find out if we had access to the information? And there probably really isn’t anything more there, is there?

    No, you’re just too prideful to allow yourself to be shown in a bad light– “If it ever came out about Omar, people would think I’m either a fool or a knave for having had any dealings with him! Can’t have any of that!” Well, guess what, Barry– we already thought you’re a fool, or more likely a knave, in the first place; how the hell would finding out about Omar have changed anything?

  • ObamaFail

    That just tells us one of the reasons why he doesn’t want illegals deported, because his uncle is illegal. The other reason is because they want the illegal vote, that way no matter how many Americans wake up to their BS (like with Obamacare), they can still win because of freebie-leeching illegals.

  • Acethepug

    I’d go a step further — does Carney expect the country to believe that, even if HE is telling the truth, Obama read the stories (since we know he gets all his information from the news, and not his staff) and never decided to correct anyone?

    That makes Obama look even WORSE! But he has to have that plausible deniability, I guess.

    Simply amazing. The Derpiest Little Dictator lies about everything and anything.
