8 people who lie better than President Obama [SLIDESHOW]

President Obama’s recent claims that he did not draw a “red line” against Syria’s use of chemical weapons has many critics shaking their heads in disbelief. Just last year, the president made it clear that he would enforce a zero-tolerance policy toward the use of chemical weapons in Syria.

It may seem to some that Obama is backtracking to avoid personal accountability for the Syrian crisis, but if he wants to do a better job at misleading the American public, he should probably take some pointers from these famous liars.

  • John Edwards. This grade-A sleaze ball went through great lengths to convince the American public that he wasn't cheating on his cancer-stricken wife.
  • Jayson Blair. This former New York Times writer made national headlines when it was revealed that he fabricated the majority of his pieces (photo from bossip.com).
  • Lance Armstrong. We Americans are suckers for an against-all-odds story and Armstrong's multiple Tour de France wins amid his struggle with cancer gave us that story. That's why it was so heartbreaking when it came out that Lance had been doping the whole time.
  • Bernie Madoff.	This creep was responsible for one of the biggest financial frauds in this country's history. Madoff duped thousands of investors and made bank doing it.
  • Bill Clinton. From lying before a grand jury to pretending to be a vegan, Bill is the king of  getting people to believe his lies.
  • Alex Rodriguez. The most hated man in sports right now did a lot of lying to earn that title.
  • Milli Vanilli. This '90s R&B duo fooled fans into thinking that they were actually the ones singing in their records. They almost got away with it too, Grammy and all, until it was discovered that they were lip-syncing during one of their live performances (photo from theguardian.com).
  • The Cast of Pretty Little Liars. Since none of us actually watch this show, we don't really know if these ladies are better at lying than Obama. But they sure as hell look better doing it (photo from starpulse.com).
