He's 'Sorry' ...Topics: Political News and commentaries
So, in an interview on NBC's "Nightly News" last night, Barack Obama apologized for his 'statements' (actually they were purposeful blatant lies - on 37 occasions) over the past several years assuring the public that if they like their insurance plan, and liked their doctor, they could keep them - period.
"I am sorry that they are finding themselves in this situation based on assurances they got from me," Obama said to NBC News. "We've got to work hard to make sure that they know we hear them and that we're going to do everything we can to deal with folks who find themselves in a tough position as a consequence of this."And that's suppose to somehow provide comfort to the 93 million Americans who will be loosing their healthcare plans and doctors (many of who foolishly and naively voted for him - because of his lie - and are now living the consequences).
To be clear, he even lied in his apology for having lied!
And then there's that not-so-little matter that he promised the most transparent and honest administration in history ... and that president's aren't suppose to plot a lie to perpetuate upon the American people, in the first place.
Allahpundit puts all this in its proper perspective:
He tried to spin away the Big Lie with another Big Lie, but when that didn't work, he was left at a crossroads. Triple down with a Big Lie about the Big Lie about the Big Lie, or bite his lip and apologize? The quote: "I am sorry that [people who've lost their insurance] are finding themselves in this situation based on assurances they got from me." I'm actually not sure what that means. It's not his assurances that have put them in this situation, it's the law he signed and the regulations he approved that sandbagged them. Or is he suggesting -- not incorrectly, mind you -- that maybe he and his pet boondoggle wouldn't have gotten quite as many votes if he'd been honest?And then there's this from Conn Carroll:
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?— Conn Carroll (@conncarroll) November 7, 2013
Suggested read: President Obama didn't misspeak; He lied
