It means that he acts like a person who lies without any preparation. Basically, it is a figurative way of saying "He is a liar".

It means someone who is never prepared, just starts something and then does it. It usually implies that it goes pretty badly, but it doesn't always have a negative connotation; sometimes a humorous one! It generally implies lack of planning and forethought. I've never heard it used in the sense of "He is a liar".
