Former Congressman Allen West wrote an article about the issues surrounding the Clippers' owner Donald Sterling in which he asks:
Has our culture devolved to the point that the private statements of an NBA owner draws more outrage than the lies and deceit of the President of the United States?
He has a point. Let's take a look at just some of the lies President Barack Obama has told during his time in office:
- Perhaps his most famous one is “If you like your health care plan, you can keep it,” Politifact's “Lie of the Year” award-winner. The fact is, there were millions of cancellations as a result of ObamaCare.
- And who can forget the lies about the Benghazi attack that President Obama told? Remember when the Benghazi attacks were blamed on a YouTube video? It turns out that the White House knew from the beginning that it was a terrorist attack by al-Qaeda.
- More recently, the Obama administration has been dishonest about the V.A. scandal.
How does the media become obsessed with remarks an NBA team owner made during what he thought was a private conversation, but seem unable to find the time to report on the many falsehoods told by this administration and President on almost a daily basis?
Which do you think is more important for our country?
