When Lies Are Golden

“We do not pay ransom [total: 1.7 billion]. We didn’t here and we won’t in the future.” – President Barack Obama

Reporter: “In basic English, you’re now saying you wouldn’t give them $400 million in cash [first installment] until the prisoners [hostages] were released, correct?”

“That’s correct.” – State Department spokesman John Kirby

Brazilian authorities should have seen the same wide-eyed dollar signs as the Iranians regarding three previously-held American Olympian swimmers. Rather than simply releasing two and charging a third (who paid a $10,800 fine for vandalizing a gas station bathroom), imagine how much taxpayer dough they could of wheedled out of Mr. Obama?

Like Barack Obama, lying Olympian Ryan Lochte loves the spotlight, doesn’t differentiate reality from fiction, and is completely incapable of shame. In these dysfunctional aspects of personality (minus Lochte’s attention-grabbing formerly dyed blue locks), he’s in good company with our president. Both exude a false sense of superiority, feel an elitist’s entitlement to say or do whatever they want—and are absolutely impervious to truth. Will this drunkard face no consequences as Mr. Obama? Only time will tell.

At 32, Ryan Lochte was supposed to be the adult of the cadre of 20-something drunken party boys that included Jack Conger, Gunnar Bentz, and Jimmy Feigen. During an early morning pit stop, a locked bathroom was kicked in, walls were soiled, and a mirror was broken. Lochte spun a gun-welding security guard into a tall tale about a thieving plain clothes police officer, who put a gun muzzle to his empty head, cocking the trigger. This was the story he later peddled to the American press, resulting in an international incident.

Already under the towering shadow of Michael Phelps—this Other Guy with six gold metals (12 overall)—will be forever known as a crying-wolf, drunken goofball. Unfortunately, for all of Mr. Lochte’s fame, the propagandist MSM is not in the tank for him as they are for the fibber-in-chief. Indeed, the president has lied repeatedly and gotten away with whoppers such as: “If you like your heathcare plan, you can keep it. Period.”; “What we do know is that the natural protests that arose because of the outrage over the video were used as an excuse by extremists to see if they can also directly harm U.S. interests.”; “Islam is not part of the problem in combating violent extremism—it is an important part of promoting peace.” Buoyed inexplicably around 50%, Mr. Obama’s approval rating is largely unaffected by his track record of bold-faced lies. Yet, what sane American corporation will want Ryan Lochte’s smarmy endorsement?

This oblivious Olympian—same as his high-life partying counterpart in the White House—is the poster child for the Ugly American in 2016. Fortunately, the professional expiration date of this matching set of lying, irresponsible pajama boys is at hand. Thus, an exasperated nation can gratefully put them both out to pasture. Related to the former golden boy—this disgraced symbol of boorish American excess—Lochte shouldn’t let the bathroom door hit his backside on his way to Las Vegas, where he can freely indulge in hidden, future adolescent antics.

In the final analysis, these careless people prove that fancy medals without integrity (same as Obama’s presidency) are empty achievements–treasured fool’s gold.
