How many times can Obama lie in one speech?

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

In Obama’s weekly address to the nation, the President managed to pack in quite a few whoppers into just a few short minutes. Did he really bailout GM? And has he ever bet on American ingenuity? Glenn gives his own thoughts on radio this morning.

In the address, Obama said, “Just a few years ago, the auto industry wasn’t just struggling. It was flat‑lining. GM and Chrysler were on the verge of collapse. Suppliers and distributors were at risk of going under. More than a million jobs across the country were on the line. And not just auto jobs but the jobs of teachers, small business owners, and everyone in communities that deny on this great American industry. But we refuse to throw in the towel and do nothing.  We refuse to let Detroit go bankrupt.”

“He didn’t bail out GM.  George Bush bailed out GM.  And I remember because I was against the bailout.  So every time that Barack Obama is saying he bailed out GM, he’s lying to you.  It was George Bush that did it,” Glenn said.

“It’s not like nobody was taking action.  George Bush, he was already down there with his feet in the mud throwing all the dirt out of the hole, digging it.  And then you got in.  And George Bush, I’m convinced George Bush would have kept digging that hole as well,” he added.

The President continued, “We bet on American workers and American ingenuity, and three years later, that bet is paying off in a big way.”

“If you would have bet on American ingenuity, you also wouldn’t have dictated it was the Chevy Volt and not the hydrogen car.  I mean, they mothballed the hydrogen car.  That was one of the biggest problems that I had with GM,” Glenn said.

Obama also claimed that GM was number one in the auto industry, also untrue. Toyota, the Japanese auto company, had long been number one but was battered by recalls and a tsunami that hit Japan allowing GM to claim the top position in 2011. Toyota has since retaken it’s dominant spot in the auto-industry.

    How many times can Obama lie during any one speech?

    However many times he feels the need to.

    The man is a human lie and spin machine; he is totally disconnected from reality and from sanity. His narcissism is now dominate, and given his emotional state, a complete meltdown can occur at any time.

    Obama wants to be free of oil but yet the idiot took the hydrogen car and gave us a car that no one wants. Thanks left.

  • http://www.artinphoenix.com/gallery/grimm snowleopard (cat folk gallery)

    From what I have gathered, natural gas is able to be harvested for hydrogen that can become a cheap source of vehicle fuel.

    And after the bailout, I swore that I will never again buy a GM or Chrysler product. I will go to Ford.

    Obummer must love Plato who has been quoted as saying, “Only the Rulers of States should have the Privelage of Lying…” (They are both wrong!)

    Leave it to ego of the left to kill something that could of changed the world. They hate this country and what they were working on would ruin their plans of destroying us. I believe that that car would of pulled us out of this mess we find ourselves in. hydrogen is the most abundant fuel in the universe they can even pull the stuff out of sea water but Obama thinks he knows what is best for us idiots.

    Update The White House just announce Oct 15,2012 they are putting special ops on stand-by for a attack in Libya and our government leak of possible drones strikes in Libya and they know who the terrorists are ????? Nothing like telegraphing what we going do putting our special ops lives at more risk and terrorists suspects who attack give them a head up to go hid and split up make a far harder targets to find and takeout !!!! Plus look at the timing it very suspicious closer to election???!!! Mitt Romney should call him out on this YOUR A LITTLE LATE TO PUT SPECIAL OPS ON STAND- BY NOW a month later AFTER OUR U.S CITIZENS WERE KILL !!!!!!!!! When Special ops should of been on stand-by & transport planes and fighters escorts ,helicopter gunships ready to go on the Anniversary of 911 with all the threats in the area and all the actual violent incidents against the West !!!!!!,So they be ready for quick deployment to aid any of our Embassies or other trouble spots specially on 911 !!!!! Plus I don’t care for obama puppets generals disclosing possible secrets of us ID these killers,and locating terrorists using drones forensics ??The general did this during a public congressional hearings to make like obama can full fill that he can hunt them down like in law enforcement operation ,instead act of war we would kept secret our way of gathering intelligence !!! All this General did was give terrorists from now on there some way that U.S can ID using drones head ups and terrorists just using their imagination figure out possible ways how this is being done with the drones and figure out a way to thwart this ID from a drones Speculation on what the terrorists imagine how this ID from a drone is done 1.) If terrorist stand still for couple second the drone will fix sights on the heads of suspects to get a facials recognition points to ID 2.) highly speculative is the zoom camera is so powerful and sharp with super quick shutter speed will take a eye scan and in Africa a lot countries to cash a check you do I.D by eye-scan,could U.S hack into Africa banks computer I.D eye scan storage banks ??????????????? to get a better photo,their home location,name etc and even compare eye scans in other countries for alias I.D !!!! 1a.) Maybe terrorists start wearing more mask and veil to thwart drone gathering facial recognition points ??/ 2.a) wear reflective or polarize sun glasses to thwart a possible eye scan by a drone 1.b) Many of terrorists most likely were wearing mask to thwart any hidden camera at Embassy that relay these images by satellites for storage !! 1c.) Terrorists will think how did they get a facial recognition with a mask on another leak info or blunder that we should not let them know we had this capability or give them the idea that we might have something like this !!!!!!! Years ago on a special military release on Fox & Friends with hosts of Miss E.D Hill and Colonel Hunt on Soft light bomb detector could detect any metal under clothing from great distance and could be adjusted to see plastics,or see your skeleton etc. Could drone computer automatically adjust for distance and type of clothing and thickness material get a good facial reading recognition points ?????? or use some type of radar scan to do this ???? I believe all records of this soft light bombs been scrubs they made mistake of too early release !!!! Now terrorist be wearing tinfoil under their cloth masks !!!! Now why did government hid this invention from U.S public it could of save many lives doctors would allow to many more preventive scan without worrying about radiation or more follow up scan after operations. greatly cut cost by catching illness early???? I think of money involve and big business wants to their corner in X-ray markets ??? I hope Miss E.D Hill remembers this program she did with Colonel Hunt !! Don’t give obama and his general any thanks for giving heads up that attack is coming and possible of I..D terrorist by drones head ups !!! Our President will get plenty of thanks from radicals terrorists and the Muslims Brotherhood for his leaks and head ups signals !!!!!!!!!!! Our President did not think twice of just going into Libya with no congressional permission in the past to aid our enemies of radicals Muslims & Muslims Brotherhood to over throw a dictator that was leaning toward the west,feeding us info on terrorists groups and Pakistan sharing nuclear know how to Syria and Iran etc !!! But now he wants to get permission from our enemies to go into lawless zone or,war zone ,and uncontrolled area of our enemy country??????????????????????? What side is obama and his pocket generals are on ???????????????

    We shouldn’t burn hydrogen if the real backlash against fossil fuels is because of global warming. (new article out today from the Brit Met office says the earth quit warming 16 years ago, but that’s a different thread) Steam is the #1 greenhouse gas by a long shot. #2 isn’t even close & carbon isn’t even in the running. Hydrogen cars emit steam. I know AGW is a lie meant to make Al Bore & his ilk rich, but that’s their argument. AGW. More steam= more trapped heat.

    Ford bit my butt some time ago for knowing about a flawed oil pan in the F-150′s which rusted from the inside out. They knew about it, it was widely experienced but they did nothing to help its customers other than(and only if you called) allowing you to buy a replacement pan at a discount. All said and done, I’d buy a Ford, German or Jap car over GM/Chrysler from now on. Unless they (GM/Chrysler) can prove their dedication to America by getting rid of this American hating regime & its cohorts.

    Leadersheep
    There is a certain strain of sheep in Iceland known as leadersheep. Leadersheep are highly intelligent animals that have the ability and instinct to lead a flock home during difficult conditions. They have an exceptional ability to sense danger. There are many stories in Iceland of leadersheep saving many lives during the fall roundups when blizzards threatened shepherds and flocks alike.

    101 Sheep
    These sheep have a strong instinct to follow the sheep in front of them. When one sheep decides to go somewhere, the rest of the flock usually follows, even if it is not a good “decision.” For example, sheep will follow each other to slaughter. If one sheep jumps over a cliff, the others are likely to follow. Even from birth, lambs are conditioned to follow the older members of the flock. This instinct is “hard-wired” into sheep. It’s not something they “think” about.

    America which sheep are you following?????

    And to know the truth, even if he sccessfully bailed out GM and Chrysler, how many jobs in the industry were lost because of re-structuring? He might have saved a million jobs, but the auto industry probably LOST two million jobs in the process.

  • M Moody

    I had rather be around and in a room of recovering/recovered alcholics anyday than in the room with who we have in the White House today….all of them included. At least in a 12 Step program, you learn you “can’t lie, you must have integrity, etc.”. Some of the most wonderful people I know are 12 Steppers. I would risk my life with them on any given day, than with Obama and his group running our country.

    Agree. And as the election gets closer, if he sees he is going to lose….his emotional state will continue to erode, his emotional state will increase in a massive “got to control this no matter who dies or what is done to the country”. His narcissism has no limits….nor does what he will do to this country. I am concerned what action he will take as he learns the American people are opening their eyes and ears. People, if you are a praying person, please, please, pray for the right outcome of this election and for the USA. For what our Founders did to make sure this was a free, wonderful country.

    This is the main reason that I have never understood how the
    press and pundits can describe Obama as a great speaker. Every time Obama heads to the podium or microphone he has to use a teleprompter without it he is the king of bad public speaking. Since when, is someone who delivers a speech packed with the following: Um, a, ah, um, a, a, ah and um a good speech giver? This is exactly how Obama sounds when working without a teleprompter. And, what do the good members of the PDDP (Propaganda Division of the Democrat Party; formerly the Mainstream Media or MSM) tell us about his bad speech habits? We are told that Obama’s poor speech patterns are the signs of a “deep-thinker”, his speech is “nuanced” and he is always searching for the best way to describe the “situation” to America. I thought that we learned in our high school speech classes that if we used a lot of um’s, or ah’s or a’s throughout the speech we would get a failing grade? Not so if your name is Barak Obama… when he uses this speech pattern it is because he is so much smarter than everyone listening. As for the media and pundits holding Obama out as a great orator is simply NOT true! How can anyone suggest that Obama gave a “GREAT SPEECH” when many of the things that he says are TOTALLY FALSE? To put it directly, how does lying throughout a speech equate to an outstanding or great speech? Great speakers don’t lie to their audiences and the media shouldn’t allow ANY speaker to get away with lying… ever, even if his name is Barak Obama. Please tell me that truth and facts still matter in America because if they don’t then we are in bigger trouble than I imagined.

    That be said when I worked for a GM company I was parts manager. Gm had emergency brake cables that were not up to snuff. they would not last long and there was a replacement in the works. GM could have let this woman use one until they came up with a solution. this woman drove her vehicle with out a parking break for 6 months. Yes G.M cares about their customers. With service like that I am surprised they didn’t go under years ago. That is one examples and I have others.

    It isn’t just that Al Bore and friends want to get rich. They are hoping to get the power to tell you and me what WE need to give up, and how much WE should pay to supposedly save the planet, though “saving the planet” is just an excuse for seizing power, just like “compassion for the poor to a Democrat is just code-talk for seizing other people’s money. Democrats, including Al Gore, never give up anything themselves, or donate their own money to charity. They only want to order OTHER people to give up stuff, and take OTHER people’s money to “redistribute” as they see fit.

    If ole Al is so worried about global warming, oceans rising, etc., why did he buy a home SMACK ON THE BEACH in California? And why is he still flying around in that gas-guzzling private jet and riding around in gas-guzzling limos? It’s only us “little people” who are to be made to sacrifice to save the planet–not the wonderful elites like HIM—you can count on that.

    GM became number one for a short time by virtually giving away cars. It’s easy to skew stats to fit your message, especially when you control things. But GM is still in big trouble, even after wiping out all debt, and getting a major transfusion of cash. This is scary stuff if you step back and take a good look.

    And the hydrogen car? Great idea! Many people already using the technology and converting cars. Just adding the hydrogen gas into the mix burns up to 98% of the fuel, leaving far less carbon residue behind. Increase in gas mileage, increase in power, decrease in wear and tear on engine. It’s a win, win, win. If they would put more money into the tech, the fuel mileage would probably soar.

    Mr. Obama did say, “Detroit” and “auto industry” which certainly includes Ford.

    And just to get it off my chest, going bankrupt doesn’t necessarily mean the company goes under, but it does give it a change to restructure sufficiently to maybe be successful. As it is, GM didn’t get that refining opportunity and so it will yet again find itself next to insolvency sometime in the not-too-distant future.

    I make the safety systems for Ford.  First, thank you to our customers. We still have 99 Billion in debt but like a good American with an upside down home mortgage, we make money as best we can, refinance to the lowest rate and pay down the debt as best we can. We are now a better company now because we have to be.  BTW our diesel Fiesta gets 75mpg in Europe but EPA regulations and diesel being more expensive than gasoline despite being cheaper to refine due to taxes and government subsidies of hybrids make it impossible to sell the diesel Fiesta in the US. High CAFE standards are fine.  The issue is the government, via market manipulation, telling us how to get there.

    I bought a new 2012 Ford last November.  I love it – it’s a great car.  before that I had a BMW (which I also loved) but decided that with all that has been going on, I needed to be more practical with money AND I wanted to buy an American car this time.  I love the Ford Fusion SE – everyone I know loves it and because it has received so many car awards, my insurance company gave me a great discount for purchasing that car.  love it!!

    yep, I own a Fusion and it is a great car, I have to say.  lots of leg room in the front and back seat, it’s looks good.  I’m really enjoying mine.

    J.D. Powers ranks the Fusion ABOVE the Camery and Accord. I used to sell Fords. I still have plenty of friends who sell Fords. I even have a couple that sell Chevy. The difference is night and day….

    When I was a kid my dad always drove Chevys. I saw the USA from the backseat of a Chevrolet . My wife and I just drove from San Diego to Denver to Yellowstone and back in a Toyota. I drive a Ranger. Mom apple pie and Chevrolet no more.
