President Obama's loose tether to reality

President Obama has made so many statements a variance with reality that it is time to question whether he is delusional or merely lying.  My hope is on the latter.  If he really believes his spin (as he once told a reporter – "You know, I actually believe my own bull---"), then we are in serious trouble as a nation.

Investor’s Business Daily lists a number of counterfactual statements from the Leader of the Free World:

President Obama was in Germany the last few days, but too many of his recent remarks sound like he's been in high orbit — around another planet.

America has never been held in greater esteem than under Obama's leadership. Counterterrorism worked well in Yemen until the emergency evacuation of embassy and Special Ops forces — and the loss of millions in arms.

The president's half-hearted "war" on the Islamic State is also a "success." As is ObamaCare, never been working better. Just as he promised.

Jobs are finally humming along with unemployment numbers down (because so many gave up looking). The economy actually shriveled in the first quarter, but that's because of some unexpected phenomenon called winter.

The Mexican border is secure now because the president says so. Since Bill Clinton was already named the first black president, the actual first black president claims he's given such staunch support to Israel that he's in reality the first Jewish president. (snip)

At his [news conference closing the G-7 meeting Monday, Obama declared that ObamaCare's costs "have come in substantially lower than even our estimates about how much it would cost. ... None of the predictions about how this wouldn't work have come to pass."

Everyone here keep the doctor they liked? Anyone's hours cut to part-time? Premiums steady? Everyone get their promised $2,500 health care savings?

On IS, Obama admitted that nine months after announcing his hastily written strategy to "degrade and ultimately destroy" the terrorist army, "We don't yet have a complete strategy." This is Obama speaking, so of course, it's someone else's fault: The Iraqis for not being trained fast enough.

Crazy or venal?  You be the judge.
