Obama caught lying to supporters in bulk email

It turns out Joe Wilson was right! On September 9, 2009, Wilson shouted at President Barack Obama while Obama addressed a joint session of Congress to outline his proposal for reforming health care. During his address, Obama said: "There are also those who claim that our reform effort will insure illegal immigrants. This, too, is false – the reforms I'm proposing would not apply to those who are here illegally." In a breach of decorum, Wilson pointed at Obama and shouted, "You lie!”. Wilson attracted national and international attention for the incident.

But in a recent bulk email sent out by Obama through the official campaign website the President did just that – lied through his teeth!

The email was part of an ongoing lottery campaign designed to sell a personal meeting with the American President for $3 in the form of a lottery ticket. This ticket is only available by donating at least $3 to the campaign to re-elect Barack Obama.

"Chip in $3 or whatever you can today -- and you'll automatically be entered to be one of our dinner guests” the message reads.

We’ve been covering this lottery for several weeks now but in today’s email from Obama he resorts to flat out lying in the desperate attempt to get as much money in as they can before a Dec 31st deadline. Here’s the text – see if you can spot the lie.

"We don't take a dime from D.C. lobbyists or special-interest PACs -- never have and never will. Instead, we believe in the kind of politics that gives everyone a seat at the table -- so we're literally offering these seats at dinner to folks who are willing to step forward and be a part of it.”

It’s quite obvious right? Obama says he has “never” nor will he ever take money from lobbyists? Please! Even the New York Times has shown this to be a flat out lie.

From the New York Times dated Oct 27th 2011 titled “Obama Backers Tied to Lobbies Raise Millions” –

At least 15 of Mr. Obama’s “bundlers” — supporters who contribute their own money to his campaign and solicit it from others — are involved in lobbying for Washington consulting shops or private companies. They have raised more than $5 million so far for the campaign.

And that was from the New York Times – a notoriously liberal paper! Obama uses a “bundler” loophole to get around actually putting his hand a lobbyist’s pocket. The bundler solicits lobbyists on behalf of the Obama campaign. To say he never takes money from lobbyists is a flat out lie. Joe Wilson was right Mr. President – you lie.
