Reminder: Kathleen Sebelius lied about not extending the Obamacare enrollment deadline past March 31
And yes, that headline is 10 words too long. Hey, it never hurts to be specific.

And she’ll lie about the next deadline, and the next one, and so on, until they manage to limp over the finish line. Then she’ll pretend it was the plan all along. And everybody who desperately wants this disastrous law to work are sure to play along, because they don’t care about being hypocrites.
As Jim Geraghty at NRO points out, it’s futile to remind liberals that they’re unscrupulous liars, because:
Ultimately, not that many liberals care whether their brethren are following their own book of rules. They’ve demonstrated a remarkable acceptance for one another’s hypocrisy.
The ends justify the means. And when all else fails, they can blame the Republicans. That’s been working fine so far.
None of which is to say we should stop pointing out their lies and hypocrisy. We just shouldn’t get frustrated when they won’t acknowledge it. They never will. Hell, Obama can’t even admit that Romney was right about Russia. He tried to claim he never said, dozens of times, “If you like your plan, you can keep your plan.” Admitting the truth simply isn’t an option.
Everybody points out Alinsky Rule #4: “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.” And so they try to get libs to conform to their own standards. But don’t forget Rule #6: “A good tactic is one your people enjoy.” And liberals enjoy frustrating rational people with self-evident nonsense and lies.
When they’re out of power, they use this tactic to hamper the efforts of good people. When they’re in power, they use it to thumb their noses at those same people. The one constant is that anything is permissible, as long as they like the result.
Plus, they’re just plain dicks.
