Don’t cry “uncle” until there’s no other option.

It’s reached the point where it’s almost comical. The least vetted U.S. president in the past 50 years, whose birthplace is still a big question mark for some people, recently added another mystery to his pre-political days.

A little over a year ago, when the White House was asked if President Obama knew his uncle, Onyango “Omar” Obama, a spokesman said the two had never met. It had been learned that Omar was living in the U.S. illegally since the 1960s, and some people wondered if the president had helped him stay in the country.

Recently arrested for drunk driving, the now 69-year-old liquor store manager shared that Barack had lived with him for a few weeks around the time the future president attended Harvard Law School in the 1980s. Wow, that Omar must have had a huge house if Barack could live with him for several weeks yet never even meet him.

I could hardly wait to hear what the White House would say after being confronted with this “new” information. But as usual, someone took the fall for the president, saying that Obama had never been consulted about the issue and that the White House had just assumed that he didn’t know his uncle. Amazing. No matter how lame the lie, they’ll stick with it until it’s exposed, and then they’ll fabricate something else.

When you believe you’re above the law and that you have no responsibility to be honest with the American public, it really doesn’t matter how many times you lie and it doesn’t matter how many times you’re caught in a lie. You say whatever is expedient at the time and if it eventually is shown to be untrue, oh well.

But does it matter if we have a president to whom the truth is relative (pardon the pun)? Does the administration’s unending series of scandals and lies really affect their ability to lead the country, or does character mean nothing, and is this just “politics as usual?” Let me know what you think.
