The Lyin' King

I suspect that I am not the first to come up with this title. It is just so obvious at this point in United States history. My apologies to those that believe that they were first. Let's call it a tie and move on.

I think everyone has known someone that would never tell the truth when a good lie will do. Even as children we find these poor souls and recognize that they trying to fulfill an un -fulfilled life.

Most of us, in childhood, take liberties with the truth. Most, and I am a prime example, do not lie well. Our parents look us in the eye. We start blubbering and give it up. That is life training that lying is, generally, not the best option.

Sometimes, even as adults, we find people that will go for the lie first and only face the truth when cornered. The strange thing is that most times, it does not matter. We are the little people. We don't count for very much.

But every once in a while, not often thankfully, a person of significance takes this approach. To our detriment, we have such a a person in our government today. He is the President of the United States, and he is the "Lyin' King".

There was an old joke. How can you tell when the President is lying? His lips are moving!

Unfortunately in this President's case it is true. "I never knew my uncle. Well, yes, I met him. Actually, I lived with him for three months."

"You can keep your doctor, you can keep your plan."

"The raid on Benghazi was about a video clip that some guy from California made."

"No one in the IRS went after conservative groups."

And the beat goes on. This administration has not the intestinal fortitude to admit mistakes. They will throw anyone under the bus thinking that people do not recognize their weak and anti American agenda.

Sorry, we do see what is going on. Look at the numbers. You will lose. We will win. Our only fear is how much damage can the Lyin' King do.
