The attorney general of the United States lied recently to Congress. He said he knew of no citizen’s communications that his department had monitored. Lie!

In fact, Holder knew that his subordinates were targeting reporters. He also did not tell the truth about the New Black Panthers case. He had sworn that there was no political decision to drop the case. Not true; the decision came from the top. He again lied about the time frame in which he first learned of the Fast and Furious case.

The director of national intelligence also lied, likewise while under oath to Congress. At first James Clapper confessed that he had given the “least untruthful” account.

Nixon’s Washington used to call that sort of neat lie “a modified limited hangout.” Later, Clapper admitted that he had just flat-out lied to Congress. Was he disgraced? Fired? Further confirmation of his “largely secular” lie?

Nope. Nothing followed.

Holder lied to Congress during the Fast and Furious investigations, and again during the business about obtaining warrants investigating newsmen. In each case he's walked back his statements.

Tomorrow night he's going to tell a huge whooper...maybe his biggest lie ever.

The economy is making huge strides and that not for Republican efforts to thwart his policies, it would be better.

He will claim that he's created an historical number of jobs under his leadership. That is except the fact most of the new jobs are part time jobs and getting a full time job is like hens teeth because employers are frightened off by ObamaCare.

Frankly any hope of him telling the truth has passed.

For those who believe what he's says, I pity your ignorant bliss.

Guess things didn't change since the days of Nixon under Obama. Especially when we hear the lies and cover-up coming from the W.H. about who is responsible for the IRS scandal. How close to Obama and what kind of orders did Wilkins receive?
