To the Editor:
Sometimes it helps to reflect on the character and integrity of our leaders, if for no other reason than to help us make wiser choices in the future. In this regard I hope your readers will find this helpful:
Famous presidential lies
LBJ: We were attacked (in the Gulf of Tonkin).
Nixon: I am not a crook.
G.H.W Bush: Read my lips: No new taxes.
Clinton: I did not have sex with that woman ... Miss Lewinsky.
G.W. Bush: Iraq has weapons of mass destruction.
I will have the most transparent administration in history.
The stimulus will fund shovel-ready jobs.
I am focused like a laser on creating jobs.
The IRS is not targeting anyone.
It was a spontaneous riot about a movie.
I will put an end to the type of politics that breeds division, conflict and cynicism.
You didn’t build that!
I will restore trust in government.
The Cambridge cops acted stupidly.
The public will have five days to look at every bill that lands on my desk.
It’s not my red line; it is the world’s red line.
Whistle blowers will be protected in my administration.
We got back every dime we used to rescue the banks and auto companies, with interest.
I am not spying on American citizens.
“Obamacare” will be good for America.
You can keep your family doctor.
Premiums will be lowered by $2,500.
If you like it, you can keep your current health care plan.
It’s just like shopping at Amazon.
I knew nothing about “Fast and Furious” gunrunning to Mexican drug cartels.
I knew nothing about IRS targeting conservative groups.
I knew nothing about what happened in Benghazi.
I have never known my uncle from Kenya who is in the country illegally and who was arrested and told to leave the country over 20 years ago.
And, I have never lived with that uncle.
He finally admitted (Dec. 5, 2013) that he did know his uncle and that he did live with him.
And the biggest one of all:
I, Barack Hussein Obama, pledge to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America.
I believe we have a winner.
