Piling up those lies like a stack of syrupy IHOP ‘eat-all-you-can-all-day-long’ pancakes. In his recent Twitter Townhall Obama said White House staff’s salaries were frozen when he came into office and those staffers haven’t had a raise in 2-1/2 years.
Iain Murry, author of the new book Stealing You Blind has written the following at Human Events:
Unfortunately, the only thing the President was being economical with here was the truth. Most White House staffers have received substantial raises in that time.
As soon as the President made that statement, Gawker‘s John Cook looked at the numbers. He found that last year 75% of White House staffers received raises at a time most workers around the country saw no raises at all. This year he found, “Of the 270 White House staffers who have been there for more than a year, 146—or 54%—received raises. The average salary increase was 8%. If you look at only staffers who got raises, the average increase was twice that.”
If you listened to Obama’s shameful presser today, you know he will say anything…anything he thinks will please his base and defeat conservatism, regardless of the damage to the country. Lies…when he speaks, he lies.
