And for his next trick, he’ll lie about this lie.
Courtesy of Real Clear Politics:
“Now, if you have or 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.”
What a pathetic liar. Is he out of his mind? He does know he has cameras and microphones pointed at him when he says these things, right?
And that’s from New York magazine, dude. They like him. They want to call this an “overly simplistic guarantee” instead of the enormous lie it is, but still. Even they can’t believe he’s trying to pull this crap.
Did you notice how he used “we” in that most recent lie? It’s always “I” and “me” when he’s lying about his supposed accomplishments. When he’s lying to deny responsibility for his failures, it’s “we.” And he doesn’t think anybody will notice.
Obama has lied about every single major issue of his presidency. And most of the minor ones, for that matter. He’d lie about what he had for lunch, just for the sheer pleasure of it. So far he’s gotten away with it, with the help of an utterly corrupt mainstream media and a largely inattentive public, so why wouldn’t he think he can get away with it this time?
King Barry the False. Only three more years of this liar. Probably.
Update: Peter Suderman at Reason notes that this is Obama’s desperate attempt at a “retcon.” Except you don’t get fined for not reading comic books…
