'obitual liar' for 'habitual liar'

I’m not convinced but, come the obituary, it could be that lying is the only thing that an obitual liar will be remembered for.

He walks around acting like he is this intelligent man when he is nothing but an obitual liar.

Are you some kind of psychopath or obitual liar or something?

He is a obitual liar who puts our country at risk every day.

Trying to restore my character as a Christian man. But it’s been difficult when you’ re a obitual liar.
