Obama Tries To Rewrite History, Lies About Being Outspent in 2004 and 2008

By Susan Duclos

Barack Obama was busted in overt lies, by The Daily Caller, twice in the same article.

First lie: "I got outspent when I ran [the] first time for Senate."

The Federal Election Committee’s website shows that Obama’s campaign claimed $14,807,432 in donations by December 2004.

 In contrast, his opponent, Alan Keyes, had only $2,545,325, according to the FEC.

That’s a six-fold advantage for Obama, not a deficit.

Second Lie: "The thing that I want everybody here to understand – each of you personally — is that back in 2008, everybody said we couldn’t do it because we were outspent."

 During the 2008 race, Obama raised $779 million. His GOP rival, Sen. John McCain, raised less than half as much, or $347 million.

 In the Democratic primary, Obama raised $237 million, while his rival, Sen. Hillary Clinton, raised $229 million.

One might understand the panic Obama is feeling as the fundraising numbers for June are released where Mitt Romney, for the second month in a row, has brought in more than Obama in the month of June.

$35 million more than Obama.

Lying to the American people when it is so easy to prove those statements as lies, reeks of desperation on the part of Obama.
