    Was it a purposeful lie? That would be a hard fact to determine. I think it more likely that Obama was ignorant of the details or even the broad outline. He may at some point gave the team working on it, a sort of wish list in which he mentioned what he wanted to see in the finished law. But as he has proven himself to be a careless, unfocused CEO he is as likely to have spoken from ignorance as from a desire to lie about the program. I am not sure which is worse- an out right lie or ignorance of his own signature legislation..
