"Everybody lies" but one person's lie may be far worse than another

For instance. Obama Spoke to AIPAC on a Tuesday, telling them that Jerusalem will remain an undivided city as the capital of the Jewish state of Israel. The very next day, OBama tells CNN that Jerusalem is still on the negotiating table.

What if a President Obama tell the nation that, "I have convinced the President of Iran to abandon its nuclear weapons program," and then a month later, Hezbollah is caught carrying a nuke made in Iran?

Or, what of Obama who has promised not to force Israel to accept the "Right of Return" as a literal concept,but then decides to cut off all aid to Israel until it willingly accepts a fifth column of 4 million Palestinians?

All lies are not the same.
