He Lied. Period.

Nov. 6, 2013

Editorial Exegesis

National Review: “The president misspoke: What he meant to say, a hundred or so times, was: 'If I like your insurance, you can keep it.' You may like your insurance, but that is not quite good enough for the Obama administration. Contrary to the endlessly repeated promise of the president and his political allies, millions and millions of Americans who do in fact like their current insurance policies are receiving notices that they will not be allowed to keep them. The White House and its media allies are working furiously to explain away this fact, but there is no explaining it away: The president lied about this. … Nor can the Democrats say that they did not see this coming. After the passage of the Affordable Care Act, Senator Mike Enzi (R., Wyo.) introduced a bill specifically intended to alleviate this problem and ensure that small businesses would have their health-insurance plans grandfathered in. Democrats voted unanimously against it. There is no amount of clever spin or media denial that can make the president's promises accord with the reality of what his administration is doing – or with the fact that he knew his claims were untrue at the time he was making them.”

Anyone who belives that Obamacare wil result in insurance policies remaining unchanged does not have a functioning brain; furthermore any one who belives any politician's promise is a fool.

If it were a private corporation and Obama was the CEO. The Justice Department would be filing "false schemes and practices" or RIOC violations. Promises to customers were made knowing that they were false. Sounds like false schemes to me.

Clearly, the purpose in requiring seniors to purchase health insurance they don't need (maternity benefits, birth control, etc.) is a form of "taxing" them to make them pay for somebody else that does need those benefits.

It appears that Democrats are simply unable to change their minds despite overwhelming evidence that exposes their President as a liar and their members of Congress as cohorts to plans aimed at destroying America as we know it. Using the label "poor" as justification for following a corrupt leadership offering corrupt promises is bogus in a country that provides the freedom to be other than poor. The Democratic leaders know this but stand behind their poor legions as they count their money.

Yes, he did lie, and the screwy part of this whole charade is that he is STILL lying about it. Insurance companies are cancelling policies right and left, and the man keeps on with his spiel about if you like your present insurance, you can keep it. How crazy is that? Every place he goes, he winds up saying it over and over again. Is he demented or what? How could such a "brilliant" man make that kind of mistake? It's like a broken record.

A truly pathological liar is one who lies about his original lies. The man is a narcissistic fool and certainly one who has fallen well short of the intellectual credit he was given 5 years ago. Just another political gangster. He will go to jail before all of this is over. The only people I know who are dumber than he is are those lemmings who voted for him.

I hope Obama will be that proverbial lever on the toilet tank, that will flash democrat party down the political sewer tank. Stupidity costs frustration of economical failure, that democrat rule gives to those, who foolishly believed a nobody, agitator, empty talker, community organizer from Chicago streets, who never produced in his life a thing, but only fecal matter on his toilet seat. Obama never hold a serious job, or even business. Obama could be that "bulldozer" for democrat party circus of blabber-mouth socialist utopia clowns, that are constantly fooling naive in this country with free cheese in the mouse trap. If this country ever will wise up at least a little, enough for conservatism to prevail in to majority, to overcome the sheer stupidity of liberals, who never stop ruining this country, and very skillful in it, constantly fooling the naive, low information voters, with empty promises, that never come to be real, with food-stamps and free cellphones,- what else do you need, if you live like a parasite on this Earth, ready to sell out your soul and freedom for crams, falling from democrat party table, the leftovers of money stolen by democrats in taxes from real job givers- small businesses in US.
