The historic Twitter Townhall is over, and PresBo lied...

PresBo Lied During Twitter Town Hall

The historic Twitter Townhall is over, and PresBo lied at least once during his long answers to short questions.

The question was what mistakes did he make handling the recession, and PresBo made the following claim:
"Even I didn't realize the magnitude -- because most economists didn't realize the magnitude -- of the recession until" we were well into it, Mr. Obama said. He added that "setting people's expectations is part of how you respond well."

This claim is disengenious at best, and an outright lie at worst.

Does anybody except me remember PresBo, when he was trying to convince everybody that his massive stimulus package was a good idea, making the following statement?
"A failure to act, and act now, will turn crisis into a catastrophe and guarantee a longer recession, a less robust recovery, and a more uncertain future."

PresBo also said (in February of 2009) that a failure to pass his stimulus bill would turn the recession into a "catastrophe from which we might never recover."

Now think about this. If he didn't realize how bad the recession was, then why did he claim we might never recover from it? Was that just political rhetoric (i.e. a lie) to convince people to support his excessive and useless stimulus package?

There's a lie in here, guys... Today he told us he didn't realize how bad the recession was, but back then he was predicting the end of our nation as we know it.

Doesn't anybody except me hold this guy to the truth? This was an obvious lie, people... do we just label it "politics as usual" and ignore it?

I hope not...
