What is a lie?

I wrote this post back in October of 2013 but didn’t publish it so as to let some people cool down.  I think it’s quite relevant now.

Definition of LIE

1
:  an assertion of something known or believed by the speaker to be untrue with intent to deceive

:  an untrue or inaccurate statement that may or may not be believed true by the speaker

2
:  something that misleads or deceives
3
:  a charge of lying (see 3lie)
“If you like your Doctor you can keep your Doctor.”
Well that fits 1b and 2 quite nicely regardless of whether you believe Obama knew the truth or not.  The fact is he lied.  Did he know he was lying?  I don’t know how he couldn’t have if he truly understood his bill but even if we accept that he didn’t really know it all that does is show that he is clueless.
“I learned about Fast and Furious when it appeared in the newspapers.”
Again 1b and 2.  Again the same charge.
In fact what becomes quite clear is that our president is either the most clueless president we’ve ever had or the most deceitful.  He is always the last to know if we believe what he tells us.  Do you think he really didn’t know the US was spying on our allies?  We’ve been doing it for decades.  I knew, how could he not know?
This president has run our country into the ground.  Those of you who voted for him have to at least be getting a bit of a clue that he’s not the savior you envisioned.  The light must be coming on that all those things he promised you were just smoke and mirrors.  Yes folks, this president has no clothes.
