Barack Obama is on a roll lately. Politifact dubbed his “if you like it, you can keep it” promise the Lie of the Year. Now he has earned the top spot on Judicial Watch’s annual “Ten Most Wanted Corrupt Politicians” list for 2013.
Judicial Watch cites several reasons Obama qualifies as the most corrupt politician of the year: using “the White House as its own personal travel bureau,” using tax dollars for personal benefit, the IRS’s targeting attacks on the Tea Party, ignoring parts of the law he doesn’t like, and, of course, lying to the American people on at least thirty-six separate occasions about their ability to keep their health insurance plans under Obamacare.
From Judicial Watch:
President Barack Obama actually tops this “Top Ten Most Wanted Corrupt Politicians” list for 2013 as the driving force behind so many of the misdeeds. This is Obama’s seventh straight year on the list, dating back all the way to 2007 (in 2006, he earned a “Dishonorable Mention”). He is a master at catch-me-if-you-can, corrupt politics. This year, he has again acted as a one-man Congress, rewriting entire sections of federal law on his own. Not only is his administration secretive and dishonest; its callous disregard for the rule of law undermines our constitutional republic.
Perhaps Obama’s most outrageous actions over the past year were his continual lies about the ability of Americans to keep their own health insurance under Obamacare. According the Free Beacon, Obama misled the American people a total of 36 times between 2008 and 2013 with his promise, “If you like your health insurance, you can keep it.” And according to NBC News, Obama knew, even as he repeated his lie, that “more than 40 to 67 percent of those in the individual market would not be able to keep their plans, even if they liked them.” […]
Throughout 2013, the Obama family continued to use the White House as its own personal travel bureau and the taxpayers as their personal expense account.Though Obama quickly disavowed any knowledge of the IRS assault on Tea Party and other conservative groups leading up to the 2012 presidential election, the fact is that it was the president himself who fingered the groups for what might be called “special handling.” […]
Little wonder that after their boss sounded the call to attack, Obama’s IRS appointees obeyed the command. And even less wonder that, caught red-handed, Obama first claimed total ignorance and, when the ploy failed, simply labeled it all a “phony scandal.”
These are just a handful of examples of Obama’s blatant law-breaking, bold-faced lying, and general corruption. Here are nine other reasons why Congress should immediately impeach him.
The president is finally being publicly called out for being the most corrupt liar of the year. It’s about time. Help us spread the word by sharing this article.
