Even staunch Obama supporters David Letterman disappointed in Obama’s lying during debates

By Benjamin Gaul

On Tuesday night’s Late Show, host David Letterman told MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow that he was disappointed in President Barack Obama, who he felt had misrepresented Gov. Mitt Romney’s opposition to the auto bailout. Letterman said that he reread Romney’s op-ed, in which the former Massachusetts governor outlined how he would rescue the auto industry. Letterman said that Obama had played “fast and loose with the facts” when he related Romney’s position.

“Here’s what upset me last night; playing fast and loose with facts,” Letterman said to Maddow. He went on to rehash what President Obama said during Monday night’s debate regarding Romney’s position on the auto bailout which he detailed in a 2009 New York Times op-ed entitled “Let Detroit Go Bankrupt“.

“Now, I don’t care whether you’re Republican or Democrat, you want your president to be telling the truth; you want the contender to be lying,” Letterman said. “And so what we found out today, or soon thereafter that, in fact, the President Obama was not telling the truth about what was excerpted from that op-ed piece. I felt discouraged.”

To which Rachel Maddow responded “Because the “Let Detroit go bankrupt” headline you feel like was inappropriate?”

Letterman answered “Well, the fact the President is invoking it and swearing that he was right and that Romney was wrong and I thought, well, he’s the president of course he’s right. Well, it turned out no, he was taking liberties with that.”

In the first part of the clip, Letterman explains his disappointment and disgust with a sitting president who will lie with a straight face. That’s followed by Maddow’s head-spinning justification for Obama’s lying during the debate.

She attempted to spin Obama’s statements into something they were not, by invoking her vast knowledge private finance, economies of scale, bankruptcy restructuring rules, mental telepathy and her skills with a crystal ball.

She completely skipped over the part where Obama was caught lying in a debate, by a man as liberal as David Letterman, yet again.

I was unable to find this particular clip on the CBS website. I had to look elsewhere on the net. Are they upset that David would question Dear Leader’s veracity, like this?

    Thanks Jerry. How deep did you have to dig to find that?

    Kim? We hold these truths to be self evident. ~WEG~

    Sherry? Take comfort in the fact that these are his final weeks in charge. Excepting, of course, the sealing of all the rest of his records, the Gitmo Pardons and whatever other damage he might feel he can get away with.

    President Obama is a pathological liar.

    Libya- they watched the entire terrorist attack via drone, in real time and still did nothing…..oh yes, I forgot, he said many times for two weeks after, including in a speech to the U.N., that it was a protest about a youtube video.

    You name it – he lies about it, whether it is his energy policy, foreign policy, etc.

    Sequestration….it was his idea that was presented to Harry Reid and then to congress. (per liberal Berstein’s book) And remember in the debate how he said that it would never happen? The next day or so in Iowa, he said the opposite.( per Iowa newspaper) Look at his website about the “truth”…..he still is lying about Romney’s auto bailout NYT opinion piece. OMG…even David Letterman is disappointed that he lied!
