Mods if I placed this in the wrong forum please be my guest and move this to the humor forum. Oh, wait a minute, he really did say this! Sorry, for a moment there, I though that maybe I accidentally strayed from The Washington Examiner to the Onion.

After reading this, all I can say is wow, he really convinced me.

Accessing 75 percent of all U.S. Internet traffic apparently doesn’t count as snooping on the American public in the White House. President Obama is standing by his statement that “there is no spying on Americans,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest said Wednesday

Obama claimed during his Aug. 9, 2013, news conference that “if you look at the reports, even the disclosures that Mr. [Edward] Snowden has put forward, all the stories that have been written, what you’re not reading about is the government actually abusing these programs and, you know, listening in on people’s phone calls or inappropriately reading people’s e-mails.”

President Obama still claims the NSA is not spying on Americans

Damn. It is only Europe that is being spied upon then.

What we done to deserve that privilege?

Maybe the words "Spied upon" are wrong, "we are just watched over for our safety" may be better.

Why anyone would believe anything the O would say, is beyond me.

Multiple sources who have worked long term close to him have attested that he's a chronic pathological liar.

That much is obvious from his public statements.

i believe if he were to admit it would he not be culpable if an ongoing investigation were to come out?

we all know he's guilty of so many things against the Constitution so i'm figuring he's marginalizing his future court dates.

the ago old MO...just deny everything.

Even in the face of greatest of evidences...just deny everything. The flock needs a confirmation from the supreme commander in's just a conspiracy.

It worked well for the last half a century...

The man is so funny to watch. The world can be literally burning to the ground around him and us due to some fault of his administration and he'd STILL get on national television to tell everyone that all is fine and not to worry. It's almost surreal how this man will not own up to anything even after the whole world knows that the exact opposite of what he is saying is actually true. You know if he wanted to be a real leader he'd actually own up to these mistakes, it'd go a long way to helping to restore his and his administration's credibility (though granted it won't happen overnight)

A small list of common lies.

The check is in the mail.

I will respect you in the morning.

Your butt does not look big in those jeans.

There is no spying on Americans.

The government is here to help you.

It's patriotic to pay taxes.

I look just like the picture I posted online.

The dog farted.

LOL. Instead of a suit and tie, Barry should walk around with a shirt that says "Whatever it is I didn't do it." On the back would be printed "It was Bush's fault." It would be his catch all so when the next scandal breaks he can just point to his chest. Then he can turn around and walk out of the room so everyone can read the back. He'd free up his time for so much more golf and wouldn't have to be bogged down with all that Presidential accountability.

Well, what's that old adage?

"If you say something over and over then it must be true"

Well clearly Mr.President hasn't convinced himself yet.

Argument by assertion is the logical fallacy where someone tries to argue a point by merely asserting that it is true, regardless of contradiction. While this may seem stupid, it's actually an easy trap to fall into and is quite common.

Well its in the news today that even more violations have been discovered. Maybe its by accidents that they found 56,000 more emails of average americans being intercepted last year. How can they look for terrorists in this way and not call it spying? Spying = To obtain secret info to determine its enemies. Lets see - they are rifling through private information to make sure we are not the enemy. Yep - spying fits.
