In a response to a question in the forum I wrote:

Obama is a professional liar! He contradicts himself constantly. He can not bring himself to acknowledge that not one idea from the GOP is ever recognized. Why doesn’t he take the list of GOP ideas and go through them one by one. Tell the public why these ideas aren’t considered. Just like health care the dems and Obama kept everything hidden because they knew what they were proposing was and still is wrong for America. I call that lying!
You are correct and here is why he does this:
Saul Alinsky was a Communist/Marxist fellow-traveler who helped establish the dual political tactics of confrontation and infiltration that characterized the 1960s and have remained central to all subsequent revolutionary movements in the United States. He never joined the Communist Party but instead, as David Horowitz puts it, became an avatar of the post-modern left.
Alinsky Identified a set of very specific rules that ordinary citizens could follow, and tactics that ordinary citizens could employ, as a means of gaining public power
Created a blueprint for revolution under the banner of "social change". Two of his most notable modern-day disciples are Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.
Given that the enemy (in this case the GOP) was to be portrayed as the very personification of evil, against whom any and all methods were fair game, Alinsky taught that an effective organizer (e.g. Obama et. al.) should never give the appearance of being fully satisfied as a result of having resolved any particular conflict via compromise.
Any compromise with the "devil" is, after all, by definition morally tainted and thus inadequate.
Consequently, while the organizer may acknowledge that he is pleased by the compromise as a small step in the right direction, he must make it absolutely clear that there is still a long way to go, and that many grievances still remain unaddressed.
The ultimate goal, said Alinsky, is not to arrive at compromise or peaceful coexistence, but rather to "crush the opposition," bit by bit.
"A People’s Organization (Obama and his acolytes) is dedicated to eternal war," said Alinsky. "… A war is not an intellectual debate, and in the war against social evils there are no rules of fair play…. When you have war, it means that neither side can agree on anything…. In our war against the social menaces of mankind (i.e. Capitalism) there can be no compromise. It is life or death."
Alinsky warned the organizer to be on guard against the possibility that the enemy might offer him "a constructive alternative" aimed at resolving the conflict.
Said Alinsky, "You cannot risk being trapped by the enemy in his sudden agreement with your demand and saying, ‘You’re right — we don’t know what to do about this issue. Now you tell us.’"
Such capitulation by the enemy would have the effect of diffusing the righteous indignation of the People’s Organization, whose very identity is inextricably woven into the fight for long-denied justice; i.e., whose struggle and identity are synonymous. If the perceived oppressor surrenders or extends a hand of friendship in an effort to end the conflict, the crusade of the People’s Organization is jeopardized.
This cannot be permitted. Eternal war, by definition, must never end.
That’s why Obama will never tell the truth, will never compromise, will never be honest with the American People. He is an ardent acolyte of Saul Alinsky and will never betray his teachings.
