Why do Republicans lie so much?

I mean, it’s constant. They’re either lying or sorely misinformed...and a bit dumb.

Here’s an example of a question that just posted on YA: “...Obama's abuse of the Constitution and his disregard for border security along with the rule of Law...”.

He hasn’t abused the constitution, has spent more on border security than any other President, and has not broken any laws.

The ONLY reason Obama hasn’t been impeached by this snarling adolescent right-wing crowd currently in Congress, is because he has not committed any impeachable offenses. If he had, they would’ve begun proceedings long ago. They’ve been waiting, praying for an actual scandal, ones with FACTS TO BACK IT UP SINCE IN A COURT OF LAW, YOU’D NEED FACTS...but nothing yet. In the meantime, they make up fake scandals to distract voters from the fact that they DO NOTHING.

Why do they behave this way? Wouldn’t it feel better to actually work to make the lives of the people better? Voting to repeal ObamaCare over 50 times and not vote on ONE single replacement? Please. Grow up.


It would appear that “Armchair Goddess” kicked right-wing butt here. Well done.

    Former Governor of Arizona Janet Napolitano, as head of Homeland Security, immediately began searching all vehicles crossing the border, instead of the old policy of random checks. Her team also began looking for and destroying tunnels used for drug trafficking, gun running, or illegal immigration. If your readers check and click on Immigration, they will discover that illegal immigration began to slow until eventually down to near zero. This is verifiable. Funding increased for border security as part of President Obama's budget requests (also verifiable), and border patrols were expanded. Illegal immigrants with criminal records were deported (an ongoing occurrence)---so much so that some Liberal Democrats were critical of the President.

    "Peace Through...": Does "on the border" or "in AZ, TX, and CA" count as "near"? If your #5 is making reference to the UN's "No Fly Resolution" for Libya after dictator Moammar Khaddafy (Qadafi) told the world he intended to send his troops "door to door" to kill the Libyans demonstrating for more say in their government, then you have been misinformed. UN member nations, to include the 13 Arab nations that comprise the United Arab League, joined together for a humanitarian mission---to support the UN "No Fly" Resolution. President Obama turned down a lead role because of our two wars---he listened to a war-weary American public and decided to take only a supportive role from ships off-shore to provide back-up for the UAL and French President Sarkozy, the ones who agreed to fly the missions that enforced the "No Fly" Zones. Under the Constitution, the Commander-In-Chief can make this decision because this is not war, but he or she can only take action for a short period (in this case it was two weeks) before handing off the supportive role to NATO (which President Obama did do) or appearing before Congress. The Libyan people were successful in overthrowing Khaddafy, but there were no Constitutional violations on the part of President Obama---NONE.

    I find it amusing that with this question, you're calling us adolescent. Just because you can't accept the truth about Obama doesn't mean we're lying about him. He has circumvented the constitution several times with executive orders. HE signed the bill into law that required him to talked to congress before exchanging terrorists for prisoners. That's one way to close Gitmo.

    1) OBAMA says Obama continually abuses The Constitution.

    2) His border spending DOES NOT include any spending NEAR the border

    3) He OPENLY ordered non-enforcement of the border

    4) You WILL NOT cite even one "fake scandal" that did not come from the Obama administration ITSELF

    5) Impeachment is impossible because without a Democrat-proof Senate he could ADMIT ON TV that he attacked a cooperating government to help an active combatant enemy of the U.S. take-over that country and #yeseverydemocrat would SUPPORT him doing so. Oh, I'm sorry, did I say WOULD support it? No, they ALREADY DID.

    President Obama has spent more on order security than any other president? If so the money spent has been useless as our borders are more porous than ever. FACT Besides, with trillion dollar deficits his first four years FACT he has spent more on everything than any other president. He signed the law that says he must notify congress 30 days in advance before releasing any Gitmo prisoners FACT and that law was introduced by a democrat FACT, it passed he signed it and he broke that law. FACT. Define Fake please. Are you saying that the IRS did not single out certain organizations? That NSA has not spied on citizens and allies? That the four dead people in Benghazi are not dead? That Obama did not release five Taliban leaders to their terrorist organizations? Please, define "fake."

    That's really bad when you worship the president instead of watching with your own eyes and letting other tell you what to think. Really BAD!

    For the same reasons, and at about the same rate, Democrats do.

    How do you tell a lawyer, or a politician, is lying? His mouth is moving.

    Terrible. When I was driving over the bridge you live under

    the other night. I noticed the light you used to have was

    burned out. Guess your water wheel broke huh. O well

    Keep using the headlights from the passing cars. Seems

    to fit into what your ranting about.

    You should ask Obama for a voucher so you can get electric in your cave and have the knowledge to answer my question, posting as you have is a violation but I never object to anyone exhibiting their ignorance and Liberals always do.

    I believe they were misinformed about how better off we are than when Bush was President.

  • 7 years ago

    Yep, everyone that disagrees with you is lying... sad, isn't it?

    Here, some sources:

    Obama orders death of American without due process of law:

    Obama orders some illegal immigrants not to be deported.

    Yeah, we are all lying.
