There have been occasions when Obama's statements were less than..well...accurate. He stated that the attack on the Libyan Embassy that killed four Americans was a protest due to a video insulting to Muslims when it was a terrorist attack to coincide with the date 9/11.
In the recent debates, he stated that the economy has improved under his rule, that Mitt Romney wants to cut taxes for the rich, that Romney cares nothing for the middle class, that unemployment is at the lowest level since his presidency....when actually the current number of the unemployed is the same as it was when he first went into office...unemployment rose drastically, then began to come back down to what it was when he first took office. Creative circular truth perhaps?
Still, by probing his statements with a closer look, would it be proper to actually suggest that the man occupying the Oval Office is a liar? Would that not be disrespectrul to the high office?
The late Terry Anderson, a black Los Angeles Talk Radio Host (who died in 2010), examined a partial list of statements made by Obama and responded to them on his program after Obama was "elected.":
1.) Selma March Got Me Born - NOT EXACTLY, your parents felt safe enough to have you in 1961 - Selma had no effect on your birth, as Selma was in 1965.
(Google 'Obama Selma ' for his full March 4, 2007 speech and articles about its various untruths.) ! !
