Now that Barack Obama has told Chuck Todd in an interview he is “sorry” for his lies about ObamaCare not taking away health plans of Americans, a whole lot of questions get teeth to chew on his sorry ass.
The first big question is about the House vote next week on the “Keep Your Health Plan Act” H.R. 3350. Will Obama threaten a veto? Will Obama actually dare veto a bill which he has now set up for successful passage due to his “sorry”? Obama Dimocrats in the U.S. Senate up for reelection next year have said they want to pass a bill to allow Americans to keep the health care plans Obama lied about and is now phony sorry about. Will Obama now be forced to sign a bill into law that will continue the slow asphyxiation of ObamaCare?
Here is the phony “sorry” from a sorry excuse for a human being, not to mention president:
All the Obama Dimocrats in congress up for reelection next year just got a big bomb from Barack Obama. They have denied all along that Obama said what he said and that what he said was a lie and that in either case you had to break millions of eggs to make the poison ObaminationCare omelet. Now that Obama has backtracked and mouthed a phony “sorry” those up for reelection next year better get out their thesaurus of “sorry” too. Recently, in Boston and before an OFA meeting in Texas, Obama tried to revise history by saying he had said something entirely different from what he actually said. Unfortunately for the lying Obama what he really said repeatedly dozens of times could be instantly revisited by the millions losing their health care plans via the miracle of Youtube which forced Big Media to acknowledge reality:
“Recent attempts to explain Obama’s previous line on keeping people’s health care plans fell short of Thursday’s apology.
“If you had one of these plans before the Affordable Care Act came into law and you really liked that plan, what we said was you can keep it if it hasn’t changed since the law passed,” Obama said Monday at an event for Organizing for Action, the nonprofit group that works to boost the White House agenda.
In Boston last week, Obama was even less sympathetic, saying that he’d promised that Americans could be grandfathered in to keep “substandard” plans they had when the ACA passed, but that it wasn’t his fault if insurers chose to cancel or change those plans.”
Obama’s phony apology has fallen far short of what is necessary and the Republicans know it:
“Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) wasn’t satisfied with Obama’s answers in the interview Thursday. “If the president is truly sorry for breaking his promises to the American people, he’ll do more than just issue a half-hearted apology on TV,” he said in a statement. “A great place to start would be to support the Sen. [Ron] Johnson bill that would allow Americans to do what the president promised in the first place: keep the plan they have and like.”
What idiot in the White House, or the sweat soaked basements of OFA, thought up this half assed phony apology by Obama? What does this accomplish? O.K. so now we have from Obama: I’d like to apologize for lying to your faces several thousand times about keeping your plan if you liked it. As Conn Carroll writes “I dont get it. Why is Obama apologizing for people losing their insurance? Last week he said they were all junk policies. Was he lying then?” “Why is Obama apologizing for liberating millions of Americans from what Democrats all swore were scam insurance policies?“ Why indeed?
It’s not even a real apology anyway so why say it? Obama essentially said ‘I’m sorry my wife is so annoying I had to beat her like Chris beat Rihanna‘. [Yes, we know we are stretching quite a bit here. Everyone knows Michelle does the beating of her flabby hubby.]
If this phony “sorry” was sufficient to quell the uproar over ObaminationCare’s now glaring phoniness and corruption then maybe such a sleazy “sorry” could be understood. But this phony “sorry” is so transparently phony and weakly insufficient it only pulls the rug out from any and all defending Obama on his repeated lies to sell ObaminationCare (and yes, we do mean you too Bill).
“I’m Sorry, Too, Mr. President
Obama apologizes for breaking promise on health care reform.
I’m sorry you campaigned for reelection on the famous false promise: “If you like your health care plan, you’ll be able to keep your health care plan. Period.”
I’m sorry your aides debated whether to tell the full truth (that people could keep their insurance only if it hadn’t changed and if it met your standards) and decided instead to institutionalize the lie.
I’m sorry that when Americans recognized the deception you tried to reinvent history: “What we said was you can keep it if it hasn’t changed since the law passed.” No, no, no, no, no—that’s not what you guys said.
I’m sorry you didn’t trust Americans with the truth.
I’m sorry that the Democratic Party’s decades-old chase toward universal health care is now at risk because your law—your legacy, sir—is off to such a miserable start. The online networks don’t work and the people you need bought into the system, particularly young Americans, can’t access the market and now may never trust it … or you.
“I am sorry that they are finding themselves in this situation based on assurances they got from me,” you told NBC News. “We’ve got to work hard to make sure that they know we hear them and we are going to do everything we can to deal with folks who find themselves in a tough position as a consequence of this.”
Then, work hard, Mr. President, and tell your administration to do the same. Tell them, please, to stop blaming Republicans, insurance companies, and the media—to stop making excuses and shading the truth. You must lead by example (the NBC interview was full of excuses) and create a system of universal health care that is worthy of your promise.
“Ultimately,” you told NBC, “the buck stops with me.” You’re right, sir. Please don’t make us sorry about that.”
Too late now to regret Obama as president. It’s too late for 2014 Obama Dimocrats running for reelection. And candidates for 2016 up and down the ballot better start denouncing ObamaCare now or they will be as viable as the health plans and doctors Barack Obama once assured were safe.
Run away from ObamaCare if you want to live. Run away from Obama too if you want to have an electoral career or be elected to anything in 2014 or 2016. Krauthammer explains:
“The president now is toxic. The thing is called Obamacare. There’s no running away from it. It’s got his name on it. You see the president, you think about the policy and you know it’s a disaster. And the problem for the Democrats is, they are hostage to a bunch of geeks working right now late into the night trying to fix a system which is not just the glitches we talked about. The architecture, the underlying structure of it is wrong.
I think the likelihood of it being fixed, working like you would expect from any normal commercial private website normally by December 1 is pretty small. And the pressure on the White House will become irresistible. If it isn’t up and running smoothly and perfectly, they’re going to start with postponements and then the whole thing starts to unravel.”
Obama Dimocrats are “hostage to a bunch of geeks” and a treacherous lying boob in the White House. Elect a treacherous lying boob – expect treacherous lying boobery.
