Why did the CPUSA's Sue Webb lie to the International Communist Movement about Obama?

The lie:

"The emergence of an extreme far-right accelerated sharply in reaction to the overturning of the eight-year rule of the right wing with the 2008 election of Barack Obama, an African American and a liberal with a grassroots base and generally progressive agenda."

Is Barack Obama a "liberal?" No.

Is Barack Obama's agenda a "generally progressive agenda?" No.

Obama represents the most reactionary Wall Street imperialists, the monopolists. Obama's agenda is solidly reactionary without any progressive overtones except for the liberal and even left rhetoric he couches his reactionary agenda in. Mussolini was a similar master of linguistics.

To the extent Obama has a "grassroots base" it is because of deceit and those on the "left" like Sue Webb making up lies about him. These lies confuse people. These lies cause disorientation. These lies divide the left. These lies divide our movement especially the working class movement already being mislead to begin with.
