"oh! what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive!" sir walter scott, "marmion," canto vi, stanza 17, 1808.
a "lying bastard," is how scott would have described obama, ... , i just hear him spit the words in a thick scottish curse, rich with contempt and invective.
we could surely use scott's brogue just now.
we haven't recourse to the great man, but for a really superior article & analysis of the perfidious offal emanating from the lips of obama and minions, see "did the obama administration arm to the teeth the benghazi terrorists?" at "freedom outpost." (well, yes, in my opinion.)
in addition to addressing the question in the title, the article very skillfully sets out the twisting path of lies indulged in by the obama administration as it tries to find its path from the wilderness, into which it has cast itself. oh, what a tangled web of deceit they have woven***, as they have sought cover for their misdeeds. lie after lie after lie. and, not a bit of it terribly artful.
how long will the media cover for them. but, the author of the above author sets forth their prevarications, in the order made, with such skill and clarity that the breadth and scope of their lies cannot be covered up, or avoided. they deserve the gallows for their misdeeds.-- and, lest it be lost in the tumult, never let it be forgotten that obama left four americans to die at the hands of terrorists obama armed, and that was the first sin, and the greatest lie of all when they did so.
(and, slept, in order to raise money in the morning in las vegas, to feed his campaign.)
a superior read, the above post, and i heartily recommend it.
and, i have no doubt at all, that after viewing the various lame brained narratives and excuses foisted on the public by obama and his hench-men and -woman, that scott would have said, at the top of his lungs, "lying bastards!! dissembling bitches!! damn their eyes!! may they rot on the gibbet!!"
