Why So Much Anger At Manti Te’o?

Why has the liberal media directed so much anger at Manti Te’o for lying, but not at Obama for lying?

So Manti Te’o lied about having a girl friend who was in a car accident and died from leukemia.  So Manti Te’o played the media to hype his own run for the Heisman Trophy.  So Manti Te’o and the University of Notre Dame continued to lie even as the sham was falling apart.

The Question I have is why is there so much anger directed at him by the media who feel they were duped?  Why?  After all, this is the same media that has ignored every lie, both little and big, President Obama has told and then been caught in.  So why the double standard?

Manti Te’o was just following President Obama’s example.

President Obama has repeatedly tried to paint himself as a man of the little people, yet his entire life has been of privilege.  He was privileged rom the time he entered one of the most prestigious private schools as a child to the moment he was swept into office on a wave of “Hope and Change” that no one with a brain in their heads believed.

President Obama regularly talked about how he would halve the national deficit by the end of his first term.  And what did we get?  Another six trillion in debt on top of our nine trillion at the time.  And the media just sat there and acted like it was no big deal.

President Obama begged and pleaded with people to believe him when he said he didn’t want to take away the second amendment rights of Americans.  Yet what is he doing today?  He is trying to do an end run around Congress and seeking ways to impinge upon the second amendment rights of Americans.

Obama lied about his mother and the evil health care company that supposedly cheated her.  Then, of course, there was the lie by Obama’s surrogates about Mitt Romney causing the death of a man’s wife with cancer during the last campaign.

Fast and furious?  All but buried.

Benghazigate?  Every time Hillary is slated to testify she has another slip and fall or complication to her health.

The list goes on and on.

So I say to the mainstream media, give Manti Te’o a break!  At least until you are serious about investigating the goings on of the Oval Office.  You know, something that actually matters?  As compared to a demented college athlete who once again showed how easily you fools can be taken?

    So if there is no truth, what is a lie?
