During remarks before a group of Southeast Asian leaders visiting the White House today, the president told what some are calling “the lie of the century.”
“One of my core principles is that I will never engage in a politics in which I’m trying to divide people,” Obama told the group with a straight face.
This president has based his entire career — from his community organizing days to his time in the White House — on the politics of division.
Employing the Alinsky model, Obama has established a long track record of “rubbing raw the resentments of the people” and exploiting divisions on class, race, ethnicity, and sex. By the Spring of 2012, Charles Krauthammer had dubbed him “the Divider In Chief.”
Discover the Networks has an extensive compilation of Obama’s tendency to pit populations and interests against each other for political gain. This tendency to fan the flames of division has been an unhealthy scourge on the nation for six and a half years.
This president has told a lot of lies throughout his tenure, but this one has to be his “most in your face” and obnoxious whopper yet.

After putting the country through six and a half years of his toxic brand of divisive politics, this president has the unmitigated gall to pretend he’s never tried to divide people? What in the world?
About a year ago, Bill Whittle explained what he thought was going on with Obama’s serial mendacity. Gaslighting: “A form of mental abuse in which false information is presented with the intent of making a victim doubt his or her own memory, perception and sanity.”
You ever look out at what’s happening in the country these days and think that you must be going crazy since you – or at the most, you and a couple of your crazy friends – seem to be the only ones who think the whole world has gone mad?
Well, first: you’re not alone. Second: you’re not crazy. And third: it’s not an accident.
This President and his entire administration are Gaslighting the American people, and so far they’ve done a hell of a job of it.
The worst part of it is, if the country elects Democrat front-runner Hillary Clinton in 2016, we are in for the Gaslight sequel — with a dangerously manipulative and dishonest female lead taking over where Charles Boyer left off.
