Obama lies about where he met his wife. Why?

by editor on July 8, 2009

Barack Obama lied to the graduating class at the New Economic School in Moscow yesterday when he said:

"Pssst, Michelle. If anyone asks, remember to say we met at Harvard."

"Pssst, Michelle. If anyone asks, remember to say we met at Harvard."

“Congratulations to the entire class of 2009. Congratulations to you. I don’t know if anybody else will meet their future wife or husband in class like I did, but I’m sure you’ll all going to have wonderful careers.”

What’s the lie?

He didn’t meet the future Mrs. Obama at Harvard Law School. In fact, they weren’t even at Harvard Law School at the same time. She graduated in 1988, but he didn’t graduated until 1991.

Where did they really meet?

A thousand miles from Harvard. In The Audacity of Hope, Obama’s best-selling memoir, he says, “I met Michelle in the summer of 1988, while we were both working at Sidley & Austin, a large corporate law firm based in Chicago. Although she is three years younger than me, Michelle was already a practicing lawyer, having attended Harvard Law straight out of college. I had just finished my first year at law school and had been hired as a summer associate.”

Why would the President lie about where they met?

Guilt by association. According to Wikipedia.com, “From 1984 to 1988, (unrepentant terrorist Bernadine) Dohrn was employed by the prestigious Chicago law firm Sidley Austin. She was hired by Howard Trienens, the head of the firm at that time, who knew Thomas G. Ayers, the father of Dohrn’s husband. “We often hire friends,” Trienens told a reporter for the Chicago Tribune. However, Dohrn had not been admitted to the New York or Illinois bar. She passed the New York bar exam but had not submitted an application to the New York Supreme Court’s Committee on Character and Fitness. She also passed the Illinois bar, but was turned down by the Illinois ethics committee because of her criminal record.”

Our theory: Obama never thought anyone would connect the dots between unrepentant terrorists Bill Ayers and his equally unrepentant wife Bernadine Dohrn. In fact, it’s likely that he never thought they’d become a campaign issue.

So even though Obama’s memoirs tell the truth about where he met his wife, he now sees a need to re-write history. His own history, that is.

Poetic license? LOL. Yes, he’s shown himself to be quite a poet hasn’t he?

By the way, THIS IS our hobby. Too embarrassingly unprofitable to call a business. :)

Poetic license? Yes, Obama’s background is all “poetic license”. That’s the leftist apologist’s emphamism for what most people call lies. Obama is a modern day Robert Frost.

If you read the book and watch the little video they had at the DNC then they both state the same thing, they met for the 1st time when they started working for the same law firm.

Why is it important? because if he will lie about something as simple as where he met his wife to please a crowd what the hell else will he lie about to n e one else? Integrity and honesty are qualities to be admired and should be qualities of the person who wishes to represent America and Her ideals.

I guess we should just watch him go around saying whatever to one crowd then something different to someone else. Boy talk about a double standard, If it was GWB who had done this it would have been slammed across every front page and every show in the nation.

And there is a blogger defending an outright lie…

Some people, like Obama have no shame or sense of honest and integrity.

Yes ladies and gentlemen connect the dots. I’m sure this is one of many lies that are yet to be told. Obama has lied so much it’s hard to keep up with the truth. Exhausting, I’m sure. Wonder if that’s the reason for the constant use of the teleprompter? This guy really believes he’s a legend…in his own mind!

Impeach him.

America, what are you waiting for?
He despises you.
He’s working tirelessly to destroy you; but still you do nothing.

Incredible.

Why aren’t there MILLIONS … marching on Washington?
Why does Obama, or anyone in his administration, have the freedom to walk or travel openly on your streets, without being physically assaulted?

America has grown too fat and complacent to even know when it is under threat of destruction.
Maybe it’s an extension of the old communist truism , “Religion is the opiate of the people”.
These days it has become “Obama, mindless education, full tummies, porn for everyone, sitcoms and TV”, rules the world.

God help us all.

I am sitting here thinking instead of saying God bless America we should be saying God help America for she is being destroyed I do not understand how this could of happened and nobody in the democrat party seems to care instead they cover up for that Pelosi who is the main destroyer of America and they trash Sara Palin who to me has more class and brains than Pelosi will ever have I used to be a democrat until I got sick of all the hate they throw at anyone who opposes their view as I wrote GOD HELP AMERICA
