WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—President Obama has imperiled his second term by lying to the American people, one of the nation’s foremost lying experts said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

The accusation carried weight, observers said, coming as it did from a legendary figure in the high-stakes world of competitive lying.

He was harshly critical of Mr. Obama’s fibbing, calling it “amateurish at best,” contrasting the President’s lack of lying experience with his own half-century of dishonesty.


“The American people deserve a President who is a world-class liar,” he said. “Sadly, they do not have that President.”

Speaking from experience, he said that he had learned “the hard way” just how difficult lying can be: “Just when you think you’ve gotten away with it, there’s someone with a hidden camera catching you telling the truth.”

He said that it was possible that the President “might grow as a liar” in the remaining three years of his term, but he was not optimistic.

“Lying isn’t something you can just pick up on the job,” he said. “Maybe President Obama would be better off leaving it to us professionals.”

The real "Lying Expert" Mitt Romney, aka the "a flip-flopper" has become a bitter,
pitiful loser since his defeat, rejection by the US voters, for President in 2012.

Of course hes a liar, he's a politician. I don't consider him an amateur though, he is after all the Liar in Chief.

ROFLMAO! Sorry for being a little bit crude, but it's too much fun to resist. I love the description of Romney as, "a legendary figure in the high-stakes world of competitive lying." Thank you, Kit, and thanks to everyone for the wonderful comments!
