    Lord of the Lies

    With polls showing a precipitous decline in President Obama’s honesty ratings, and two influential barometers of trust giving him “pants on fire” and “Pinocchio” awards for his ObamaCare comments, some analysts question if the president’s effectiveness can be resurrected.

    A Fox News poll conducted December 14-16 asked respondents "Is Barack Obama honest and trustworthy? Some 45% said yes and 49% said no.

    In April of 2009, when voters were asked the same question, 73% said yes and only 22% said no.

    What poll numbers convey in precision, two other trust indicators -- Politifact and the Washington Post's Fact-Checker column -- have conveyed in derision. They awarded the president a "pants on fire" award and "four Pinocchios" respectively for his repeated assurances that Americans could keep their insurance plans, hospitals, and their doctors.


    When an Ireport comes out criticizing this President's actions there are very few coming to his defense these days and even more ignoring the Ireport all together.

    For those of you who voted Obama the first time, I can say I understand your wanting change.

    For those of you who voted Obama a second time after seeing his first term performance I have to say:

    What were you thinking?

    The slogan anyone but Bush sure has backfired on the American people in a big way and after enduring the eight years of 'Bush Bashing' and seeing five years of Obama's failures and lies, I have to ask those same Obama supporters one simple question:

    Why are you so silent today?
