Obama Flip Flops On Scare Tactics

Back in June, President Obama said he wasn’t going to use scare tactics to win political battles. “I’m the President of the United States,” said Obama, “and I want to ensure that I am not engaging in scare tactics.”

Then, just two weeks later, Obama tried to scare the bejesus out of Americans by saying that he wasn’t sure if Social Security checks would go out on time if a deal to raise the debt ceiling wasn’t made in Congress:

So he won’t use scare tactics except when scare tactics are convenient for his political agenda.

    Barry speak with forked tongue, having thousands of tines, all opposing each other so that, since he is unable to baffle us with his brilliance, he knows he can always befuddle most of us with his tons of bovine excrement.

    Ask him though, he will deny he is trying to scare anyone, only being honest and telling the peons that do not understand things like the ruling class – the real facts.

    Is anyone surprised by this?  The guy says one thing and then does the exact opposite.  Did the same thing with saying he was going to open up oil exploration, etc.  Of course the MSM will only report what he says.  The guy is a serial liar.
