This is really disturbing. What kind of a man does this?
Driven by ambition, Barack Obama used his dying mother as a prop for one of his final campaign ads.
Now we find out that it was all a lie.
Obama lied about his mother’s stuggles with insurance companies to get elected. He lied about her insurance situation to ram through Obamacare. None of it was true.

Tuesday, The Blaze reported on President Barack Obama‘s alleged mischaracterization of his mother’s, Ann Dunham, arguments with her insurance company as she lay dying (Obama claimed the insurance company wanted to deny her coverage based on a pre-existing condition). Now, the White House is declining to challenge the charge that Obama fabricated the story in an effort to convince Americans to support his Democratic health care reform plan.
In his initial report on the story, The Blaze’s Christopher Santarelli wrote:
A new book by New York Times reporter Janny Scott sheds new light on the life of Barack Obama’s mother, Ann Dunham, including her final years. Scott found while assembling information for “A Singular Woman: The Untold Story of Barack Obama’s Mother,” that Dunham in fact did have health coverage for her ovarian cancer, based off Dunham’s own past correspondence.
If these allegations are true, Obama‘s statements about his mother’s care were based on outright lies, fabrications — or, at the least, incorrect memories regarding what had actually occurred. Throughout his 2008 presidential campaign and during the political battle over the contentious health care legislation, the president utilized his mother’s story to instill pathos in audiences. In 2010, he said:
“I do remember the last six months of her life, insurance companies threatening that they would not reimburse her for her costs.”
The New York Times explains that the president and the White House, at this juncture, are not refuting Scott’s conclusions:
The White House on Wednesday declined to challenge an account in a new book that suggests that President Obama, in his campaign to overhaul American health care, mischaracterized a central anecdote about his mother’s deathbed dispute with her insurance company.
The insurance companies didn’t take advantage of his mother. They bent over backwards to assist her during her final days.
But it did buy him some sympathy votes. That’s what he was looking for.
