So your going to go down swinging eh? The links have been provided and all you need to do is read them. Ignoring them and continually demanding

2011 - Obama uncle arrested for DWI = CNN
History of the Uncle - 2012 - Boston.com
2011 - White House states Obama and his uncle never had contact - Boston Globe
2011 to 2013 - The uncles case works its way through the courts. White house maintains Obama never had contact with his uncle during this time. -
Various media outlets.
2013 - Immigration hearing - Uncle states on the record President Obama did in fact stay with him.
Present - White House back pedals, stating Obama did in fact have contact and that no one ever bothered to ask the President directly.
2011 - White House states President Obama
and his uncle never had contact - USAToday
Carney said the White House staff [I]based its 2011 claim that the two had never met on a review of the documentary record — including
Obama's memoir — and had not asked the president himself.[/I]
Media was asking the White House about this topic for over a year.. It appeared in the media, and we know this because he media keeps asking the White
House about it. The President had a year to resolve that issue and failed to do so, relying on Herr Carney to continue issuing denials.
Only after the White House got caught lying, they changed their lie from never meeting him to ooops, we never asked the President.
Do you really think the President had no idea this occurred? With media pounding on the front door of the White House Obama knew what was going on and
remained quiet. A relative of his, who was arrested for DWI, who is an illegal immigrant, who invoked the White House at the time of his arrest...
I know for a fact you are not that naïve about Politics and how this works.
The White House lied by statement when they denied they ever met to the Boston Globe in 2011.
The White House continued this lie up to the court appearance.
The White House lied when they stated no one ever asked the President.
the White House lied by omission with the back track and acknowledgement, because they had that info from the start.
The New York Times - White House now says Obama did
meet his uncle
Two years ago, White House officials told the Boston Globe the president had never met Onyango Obama, known as Omar, the president's uncle.
But press secretary Jay Carney said Thursday that the 2011 statement was false.
The president "had met Omar Obama when he moved to Cambridge for law school," Carney said, and "he stayed with him for a brief period of time
until the president's apartment was ready."
"After that, they saw each other once every few months . . . and then, after law school, they gradually fell out of touch. The president has not seen
Omar Obama in 20 years and has not spoken with him in roughly 10 years."
now its 10 years...
Lets put it this way - What possible reason / event existed for the White House to take the position of President Obama not having contact with his
Oh, that's right... the 2012 Presidential Elections.
Where immigration was a key issue...
Where Obama uncle was in this country illegally...
Where Obama has issued executive orders to slow / stop deportations...
So the question becomes was the White House lying in 2011, or in 2013?
According to Jay Carney they lied in 2011...
You up to speed now?
2011 - Lied
2012 - continued lie
2013 - called out by uncle
2013 - The President was never asked.
ton Post DEC 3 - Obama’s uncle contradicts White House, says Obama stayed with him in 1980s
The White House said following Omar Obama's arrest that he and the president had never met. The president was not close to his father's side of
the family given his father's absence in his life.
The White House has not commented on Omar Obama's claim.
I will wager that Obama is not going to be doing any more press conferences for the remainder of his Presidency. He is not going to put himself into
a position where media can ask him directly about this and the other scandals he's trying to lie his way out of.
In order for Carney to make the statements he did, he would have had to know the answer, which means he had conversations with people about uncle
Its like a reporter asking the Press Secretary if the President is considering doing this or that. The only way the Press Secretary can answer that
would be to ask the President, which means the President will have considered it.
This President, along with all others, are carefully vetted by their own to ensure they can handle whatever comes at them in the political arena.
This is one of those areas..
So yes - they lied - and the White House stated as much.
But hey.. if you don't want to take my word, or that of the various media outlets reporting on this topic, as truth feel free to ask the 5 million
people who were told they could keep their health care as is.
With this being said ive stated my position and posted the links to the sources.. You have made your position clear. I am not going to go in circles
with you as we do in other threads. You are more than welcome to respond and try to pick my position / sources / facts apart. If they are credible I
will respond and if they are nothing more than articles to support your version then we will shake hands and I will leave the field agreeing to
