Why Does Obama Lie Unnecessarily?

The Clintons used to do this all the time: Lie through their teeth when it wasn't even necessary. Must be some sort of liberal pathology.
“I don’t know if anybody else will meet their future wife or husband in class like I did, but I’m sure that you’re all going to have wonderful careers,” he said as he warmed up the audience before delivering a commencement speech at an economics school in Moscow Tuesday.

Obama seemed to be playing off an introduction that referred to him meeting his future wife, Michelle Robinson, while he was a student. But the truth is that the couple met not “in class” but at a law firm in Chicago, Sidley Austin, in 1989. Obama was a summer associate (essentially a legal intern) there and Robinson was an attorney completing her first year at the firm. Both attended Harvard Law School, but Michelle graduated in the spring of 1988, while Barack Obama did not arrive at the Cambridge, Mass., campus until that fall.
Naturally, Obama's handlers at The Politico cover for him.
It was unclear what prompted Obama’s confusion or lapse of memory, though he does have the excuse of jet lag. It was about 4 a.m. in Washington as he spoke.
Aw, the poor thing.

Good thing he's got the media to cover for his lying.

This reminds me of when Mrs. Clinton told the tall tale of being named after Sir Edmund Hillary, an unknown when she was born who would later go on to scale Mount Everest.

be very suspicious of people who lie when there is no reason to.
