JULY 12, 2016 By Sean Davis

During his speech at the memorial service in Dallas for murdered police officers, President Barack Obama lamented that his words have little power to effect change, then proceeded to peddle blatant, easily refutable lies about guns.

ďIíve seen how inadequate words can be in bringing about lasting change,Ē Obama said. ďIíve seen how inadequate my own words have been.Ē

One reason for that inadequacy may be that he says things he knows arenít true. Over the weekend, Obama said, ďI think itís very hard to untangle the motives of this shooter.Ē Given that the shooter himself told police that he ďwanted to kill white people, especially white officers,Ē there doesnít seem to be much left to untangle.

Another reason for the inadequacy of the presidentís words may be that he so often says things that other people know arenít true. Take, for example, a new gun claim that he for some reason decided to trot out at a memorial service for murdered police officers on Tuesday:

Set aside for the moment the question of whether this kind of political speechifying is appropriate for a solemn memorial service, and just focus on the assertion itself: ďItís easier for a teenager to get his hands on a Glock than a computerÖor even a book.Ē

Is there anyone in America, other than its commander-in-chief, who believes for a second that this even remotely approximates the truth? Itís not just false. Itís laughably false.

Instead of taking a moment to thoughtfully consider why his words are so useless, the president instead sought to cheapen them even more by peddling obvious lies. And he chose to do so not at a political event or campaign rally, but at a solemn event meant to honor the lives of those who got up every morning in order to protect others. President Obama is right: his words are meaningless. If he wants people to take him seriously for the next six months, maybe he should start using them a little more sparingly and starting telling the truth a little more often.

Note, however, how the ever vigilant MSM pointed out the ridiculousness of Obama's claim.

You did see it, right?

How would Zero know how difficult or easy it is to buy a book or gun ?

I doubt if he's bought either.

Au contraire, mon Algernonpj. Recall you not the famous words of accomplished Obama boot licker Paul McCartney when at the WH in 2010?

McCartney thanked the audience and noted how nice it was to receive the award from the Library of Congress, and ďin fact, after the last eight years itís great to have a president who knows what a library is.Ē
