Looks like the golden child is finally being called on his lies, by more than just Fact Check .org, as I wrote about earlier.
Hat Tip to Stop The ACLU, we see Obama doesn't like being questioned which is perhaps the reason he backed down, went against his "anywhere, anytime" statement for townhall meetings.
He doesn't like being called out on his lies and goes as far as to yell at old ladies when they dare question "The One."
Very short video below:
Last week, Obama had blacks in Coral Gables, Florida, interrupting his speech with signs and protests, some signs saying "Blacks against Obama." (Video here)
In Jacksonville Florida, he has people protesting him by air, with a plane flying over his head with a banner that read, "Raising taxes is not patriotic."
That was in reference to Joe Biden's comment about how paying taxes is patriotic.
The New Hampshire Union Leader Paper has a blistering editorial calling him out as a liar as well.
Yet here he is violating his own professed standards. This is not the Barack Obama so many voters in New Hampshire and elsewhere thought they knew. But it is the real Barack Obama. For despite his rhetoric, he is in fact campaigning so dishonestly that even The Washington Post and The New York Times have called him on it. Which means that he is in practice no different from those regular politicians against whom his entire campaign has been built.
Read the whole thing, they have quite a list.
Looks like people are finally waking up to what Barack Obama really is.
Finally the masked man is being revealed.

Barack Obama is keeping those researchers over at Fact Check .org pretty busy lately and yesterday they called him out on falsehoods and "rank misrepresentation", in a piece they called "Scaring Seniors" and today they say "Obama personally fed senior citizens another whopper," on Saturday.
In Daytona Beach, Obama said that "if my opponent had his way, the millions of Floridians who rely on it would've had their Social Security tied up in the stock market this week." He referred to "elderly women" at risk of poverty, and said families would be scrambling to support "grandmothers and grandfathers."
They use words like "highly distorted", "whopper", all making it clear that Obama is directly, deliberately, lying to the elderly to confuse them.

On one fundamental maxim all professional propagandists would agree: It you repeat a lie often enough and loudly enough, sooner or later it becomes accepted truth. Considering the long ignoble record of relentless and vociferous attacks by the Communist-inspired left on our American history, it's a wonder that there can be any true American patriots left.
Immediately following World War Two, and up until this present hour, we have been, and are still being, assaulted with vicious and totally unsubstantiated lies and distortions about the history of our great nation. These outrageous falsifications have been repeated so often by so many that they have indeed become accepted truth. What is worse, however, is the almost total lack of counter arguments and effective rebuttals. The voices of truth, that is, the voices of dissent, have been so weak and limp-wristed that they have been all but useless against this cynical onslaught of manipulative slander. To be an unabashed patriot in this present atmosphere of self-loathing and eagerly embraced guilt is to be an extremist, an ignorant, chest-thumping redneck. The cynics hold the high ground now: they have raised their flag of anti-Americanism, and the knowledgeable world applauds.
The simple patriotism of even the most sincere and committed patriot amongst us is invariably tainted by these insidious lies. We love America, we say to ourselves, despite its failings, despite its long list of tragic and monumental blunders. None of us is perfect, we say. But America comes closer than most. And, besides, we have for the most part admitted our past mistakes and, where possible, made reparations, or at the very least issued heartfelt apologies to our purported victims.
This, my friends, is how deeply we've been penetrated by the enemy's successful propaganda assault. We have embraced their ingenious lies and incorporated them into our national narrative. Seldom, if ever, do we take the time to actually investigate them. After all, we have received these lessons from some of our most credible sources, our teachers, our politicians, our historians and our media. Why should we doubt them?
The tedious litany of America's bloody blunders, that well-publicized list of American mistakes and American atrocities is just too long to attack, item by item, here in this limited space. But perhaps by tackling just a few of the most popular lies in our anti-Americanist's propaganda arsenal we can hopefully raise some doubts about the veracity of some of the others. Maybe, with just a little research into this worthy subject, we can learn -- as I have learned -- to love America because of our history, and not despite it.

Jill Stanek, speaks in the video below, was a nurse that witnessed cases of infanticide, babies born alive after failed abortions, and she testified on a national level about how those children were put in a room, alone, and left to die.
Watch the video to know the type of person Barack Obama really is when he voted, three times, against the Born Alive Act, which would have forced care for children born alive after a failed abortion attempt.
This video has been watched, as of right now, more than 1,564,621 times and anyone that could vote for Barack Obama after understanding that he supports infanticide...deserves what they get.
I had trouble embedding the video above, so I have found another where Stanek speaks to Fox News about Barack Obama being the only Senator to speak out against the Born Alive Act, which would make it mandatory to give these babies born alive medial care.
That video is embedded below, but I truly suggest you watch the one linked above as well.

FactCheck.org says the new Obama-Biden ad claiming John McCain's Social Security (SS) plan would cut SS benefits in half is a "falsehood" and a "rank misrepresentation" which would scare senior citizens who rely on SS checks.
According to Fact Check in an article titled "Scaring Seniors" the "promise" ad says John McCain voted for privatizing social security and quotes him as saying he "campaigned in support of President Bush's proposal."
That is true, as shown by John McCain saying in March of 2008, "I'm totally in favor of personal savings accounts and I think they are an important opportunity for young workers. I campaigned in support of President Bush's proposal and I campaigned with him, and I did town hall meetings with him."
The ad implies that Bush's plan bets the whole lot of Social Security funds on unstable stocks. In fact, it would have "privatized" only a small portion of Social Security taxes that Americans could have invested in private accounts, if they chose to do so.
The "rank misrepresentation" come in when the Obama ad claims it would cut "benefits in half."
Fact check states:
Nobody now getting benefits, or even close to retirement, would have seen any reduction in benefits or cost-of-living adjustments under the plan Bush proposed in April, 2005. What Bush proposed – in addition to creating private Social Security accounts – was to hold down the growth of benefits received by those retiring in the future. He embraced a proposal for "progressive price indexing" of future benefits. This would have been a "cut" only in relation to what the current formula would produce for future retirees, assuming that taxes are increased sufficiently to keep the system going.
Fact Check goes on to point out the claims in the new ad attempts to use a report by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities written by Jason Furman, with Furman now being one of Obama's top economic advisers, then finds the report they are documenting to make their claims actually is "quite different from what the ad claims."
They end their fact checking by saying ads like the Obama-Biden as "misinform" the public and only make the job of fixing the system more difficult.
