While President Obama uses the media to lie to us in this video he makes a couple of completely false claims.
One false claim: Obama says the Citizens United ruling will allow "foreign-controlled corporations seeking to influence our democracy... to spend freely in order to swing an election toward a candidate they prefer." which is completely false. In fact, Justice Kennedy noted in the majority opinion: “We need not reach the question whether the Government has a compelling interest in preventing foreign individuals or associations from influencing our Nation's political process.”
Another false claim: Obama also insinuates throughout the Address that politics of today are unfairly and wrongly influenced by "unseen forces and special interests" as though he, himself, wasn't guilty of using those very same forces and tactics in his campaign. It has become evident in this Administration what is good for the goose is indeed despised by the gander.
It was never more transparent that those working in the government today don't care for freedom of speech than when, last week, gangster government attempted to stifle criticism of Obamacare by sending out letters to insurance companies stating they would not tolerate the truth being told to policy holders. This from the same Administration that will now sit in judgment of political ads run by opponents of their party or ideas. Interesting.
There will be no zero tolerance for the truth. Don't forget that.
