32 Obama Fact-Check Failures

OBAMA SAID:

It will help us close our deficit.   (Obama speaking on the so-called ‘Buffett Rule, his proposed   capital-gains-tax increase)

THE TRUTH

According to the Congressional   Budget Office, Obama’s Buffett Rule will raise $3.2 billion per year. That’s   what the federal government currently borrows every 17 hours. So in 514 years   (the year 2526) it will have raised enough additional revenue just to pay off   the 2011 federal budget deficit. If the federal government confiscated the   total wealth of the Forbes 400 richest Americans, it comes to $1.5 trillion, or   less than the Obama budget deficit for a year.

I’ve   done more for Israel’s security than any president ever. Obama aided Islamic extremists – enemies of Israel —   take-over of Egypt/Libya.
Republicans   are responsible for my jobs bill not passing Democrats   rejected Obama’s jobs bill
The   fence between U.S. and Mexico is “Practically Complete” Department   of Homeland Security says fence 5 percent complete
The   rich don’t pay their fair share. The   wealthiest 5 percent pay 58.66 percent of the taxes, and the top 10 percent   pay 70.5 percent of the taxes (2009).
“Reform will also rein in the abuse and excess that nearly   brought down our financial system. It will finally bring transparency to the   kinds of complex, risky transactions that helped trigger the financial   crisis.” The law signed by President Obama exempts the SEC from   disclosing records or information derived from “surveillance, risk   assessments, or other regulatory and oversight activities.” Given that the   SEC is a regulatory body, the provision covers almost every action by the   agency, lawyers say. Congress and federal agencies can request information,   but the public cannot.
The   jobs bill is paid for. There   is no guarantee that programs that will increase annual deficits in the near   term will be paid for in the long term.
Obama said he “will not rest” until the oil leaking from a   ruptured oil well in the Gulf of Mexico was stopped. In the next several days, Obama   welcomed the college basketball champion to the White House; Obama and Biden posed   for photos with the U.S. World Cup Soccer team; Obama traveled to Chicago;   went golfing with Joe Biden; played golf again; and spent a weekend on Mount   Desert Island.
We   have run out of places in the US to drill for oil. There   is plenty of oil that we can get closer to our shores and on land, but   Democrat lawmakers have pushed companies off the coast and into deeper waters   making it more expensive and dangerous to harvest energy.
On   Arizona Law 1070: Now suddenly if you don’t have your papers and you took   your kid out to get ice cream, you can be harassed, that’s something that   could potentially happen. The   Arizona law mirrors the federal law which is not being enforced. Obama is not   suing the federal law.
“We   began by passing a Recovery Act that has already saved or created over   150,000 jobs.” This   assertion is flawed on several levels. At the time of this statement, the   U.S. had lost more than 1.2 million jobs since Obama took office, according   to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Even if Obama’s stimulus bill had actually   saved or created as many jobs as he says, that number is dwarfed by the   number of recent job losses.In   Arizona’s 15th congressional district, 30 jobs have been “saved or created” with $761,420 in federal stimulus spending. At least that’s what the Web site   set up by the Obama administration to track the $787 billion stimulus says. There’s one problem: there is no 15th congressional district   in Arizona; the state has only eight districts. And ABC News found many more   entries for projects like this in places that do not exist. Fraud and abuse   of government spending associated with the Recovery Act are rampant.
Obama says he is a Christian and   believes in “collective salvation.” Salvation is not a “collective”   act. Salvation is a personal act by individuals who separately declare faith   in Jesus in Christ. There is no mention in the Bible one can only become a   Christian unless someone else does also.
“We   now have over $9 trillion of national debt we are gonna have to pay back.   It’s irresponsible.” Obama   is responsible for $5 trillion of the national debt.
 We are our brother’s keeper.  Obama has never given a nickel to his half-brother George, who lives in a hut in Kenya.
The health care debate will be covered live on C-SPAN. The House and   Senate created a law through private meetings without C-Span cameras, as   promised.
The   2012 GOP budget plan will take health care away from Down syndrome children. False.   And 90 percent of Down syndrome preborn children in America are killed by   abortionists. The abortion industry consistently contributes to the campaigns   of Obama and Democrat candidates for office.
I   will cut the deficit   in half by end of my first term. The   deficit increased every year under Obama.
Under   Obama’s government medical rationing law, he said no federal funds will be   used for abortion. There are no promises in the bill   preventing federal funding of abortion.
“We have launched a housing plan   that will help responsible families facing the threat of foreclosure lower   their monthly payments and refinance their mortgages. It’s a plan that won’t   help speculators or that neighbor down the street who bought a house he could   never hope to afford, but it will help millions of Americans who are   struggling with declining home values.” The Obama administration has not come up with a way to   ensure that the bailout money only goes to those who got into trouble.
I am not somebody who promotes   same-sex marriage, but I do believe in civil unions. The Windy   City Times, a homosexual paper, reported   Obama filled out a questionnaire in 1996 and said: “I favor legalizing   same-sex marriages and would fight efforts to prohibit such marriages.”
Americans making less than $250,000   a year will receive a tax cut, Obama promised in 2008. The   first violation of this promise was the signing of the Tobacco Tax into law.   The second violation came with the health care bill. Both raised taxes.Obama is cancelling the Bush tax cuts — resulting in the largest tax increase in American history, January 1, 2013.
Obama denied a close relationship with Bill Ayers, a   former terrorist. From   1995-1999, Obama led an education foundation called the Chicago Annenberg   Challenge (CAC), and remained on the board until 2001. The group poured more   than $100 million into the hands of community organizers and radical   education activists. The CAC was the brainchild of Bill Ayers, a founder of   the Weather Underground in the 1960s. As CAC chairman, Obama was lending   moral and financial support to Ayers and his radical circle. Among other   feats, Ayers and his cohorts had bombed the Pentagon, and he has never expressed   regret for his actions. Obama’s first run for the Illinois State Senate was   launched at a 1995 gathering at Ayers’s home. Ayers parents financed portions   of Obama’s education.
Obama   said he never heard controversial remarks by Rev. Jeremiah Wright in the   church he attended for 20 years. Obama   did indeed know of Wright’s radical sermons and he fully endorsed them. Obama   only separated himself from Wright after weeks of pressure and even then said   that he didn’t know or hear any radical sermons while he attended the church.   Wright also performed the wedding ceremony for Barack and Michelle Obama.
My   father served in World War II. This   is a blatant lie.
Obama said he won the 2008   Michigan presidential primary. Obama was not on the ballot in   Michigan.
Obama   was never associated with ACORN. Obama   funneled $800,000 to ACORN for their   2008 General Election operations and then lied about it. Obama organized Project Vote   activities in Chicago, in 1992 and has trained ACORN   operators.Obama as ACORN’s lawyer, sued   Illinois  in 1993, to weaken voter registration law.Obama as   ACORN’s lawyer, sued   Citibank   in 1994 (Buycks-Roberson case, above), to force them into giving   subprime loans to home buyers with poor credit ratings, setting the stage for   the mortgage meltdown.Obama   promised in 2007 to let ACORN and related groups “help us shape the   agenda”   of his presidency, by meeting with them after the Nov. 4 election. What is   their agenda? “Helping low income people?” In some ways, at least   temporarily, but see below.When   Obama met with ACORN leaders while campaigning for president in 2008, he   reminded them of his history with ACORN and his beginnings in Illinois as a   Project Vote organizer, a nonprofit focused on voter rights and education. He   said he knew personally the “work you do” and “I’ve been fighting alongside   ACORN on issues you care about my entire career.”In   2011, The Obama Administration gave ACORN spinoff organizations $729,849.
Obama   said he did not know Tony Rezko, a convicted felon.. After his election to the U.S.   Senate, Barack Obama approached Tony Rezko, then under active federal   investigation, as he sought a way to buy a house.
Under   Obamacare, Medicaid will not be cut. HHS   Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services testified that cuts to Medicaid   would “jeopardize access” for millions of seniors.
Obama   said he did not support a single-payer health insurance plan. In   a 2003 videotaped interview, Obama said: “I happen to be a proponent of a   single-payer universal health care plan.”
Obama   denied for months that the GOP had a health insurance reform plan. Republicans   offered numerous proposals. And Obama later backtracked and claimed he   included many of the Republicans’ proposals in his own plan!
Domestic   oil production is up under this administration. The   government’s director of the Bureau of Land Management, Bob Abbey, testified   to Congress on this very point: Oil production is actually down 14 percent on   federal property and down 17 percent offshore from a year ago.The   Congressional Research Service report confirms this: In 2011, production on   federal property declined by an average of 275,000 barrels per day.
“Ultimately,   I am confident that the Supreme Court will not take what would be an   unprecedented, extraordinary step of overturning a (Obamacare) law that was   passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected Congress.” The   Supreme Court has invalidated more than 150 federal laws in part or
