O’REILLY: Here’s what the Wall Street Journal said, I want you to react to this. Mr. Obama is a determined man of the left whose goal is to redistribute much larger levels of income across society. He may give tactical ground when he has to, as he did on taxes to avoid a middle class tax increase, but he will resist to his last day any major changes to Obamacare and the other load-bearing walls of the entitlement state.
This is The Wall Street Journal you know painting you as pretty left-wing guy. Are you going to go along?
OBAMA: Well, the Wall Street Journal probably would paint you as a left-wing guy. I mean, if you’re talking about the Wall Street Journal editorial page…
O’REILLY: I’ve got to tell you, that’s what this is.
OBAMA: You know, that’s like quoting the New York Times editorial…
O’REILLY: Do you deny the assessment? Do you deny that you are a man who wants to redistribute wealth.
O’REILLY: You deny that?
OBAMA: Absolutely. I didn’t raise taxes once, I lowered taxes over the last two years.
And less than 24 hours later this is Obama giving a speech at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce:
Did you catch the lie at the :35 mark?
In the interview Obama flat denies that he wants to redistribute wealth and then during the speech he advocates the exact opposite.
He continues to live up to the old adage, “you can tell he’s lying because his lips are moving.”
A little side note: During the Chamber of Commerce speech, Obama only received two rounds of applause in 35 minutes, I’m assuming the first was to courteously greet him and the second was at the end because they were grateful the BS was over.
