3 Big Lies Told About President Obama

During Adolf Hitler's reign of terror in Nazi Germany he employed a deadly media tactic in order to both desensitize the country and lull it's citizens into apathy. Rather than tell small lies, he would tell huge lies over and over again. So much so that some Germans believed that fiction was the truth. This represented a tipping point, and lead to one of the worst atrocities that the world has ever seen. Today, decades later, the Republican Party is using the very same tactic, with intentions not as sinister but, damaging none the less.
Lie #1.
President Obama took $716,000,000,000 out of Medicare in order fund Universal Healthcare. This has been repeated over and over again by both Mitt Romney, and Paul Ryan. But the fact is that President Obama cut $716,000,000,000 in wasteful spending and closed a gap in the Medicare budget to give senior citizens more benefits.
Lie #2.
President Obama gutted the welfare system and made it no longer necessary for recipients to work for their benefits. Wrong! The Obama administration initiated a $1.3 billion program that helps states give work to more welfare recipients but this idea was killed by Congressional Republicans eager to rebel against any Obama initiative.
Lie #3.
President Obama is soft on terrorism because he is a Muslim sympathizer. More drone attacks have been authorized under The Obama administration than his predecessor and President Obama authorized what is arguably the most daring and well planned operation in US history to kill Osama Bin Ladin.
