…in the White House.
Nobody in the Obama administration, most especially the President, has a clue about the First Rule of Holes:
Here’s what the President said over and over and over again…
Please note, that compendium of quotes was put together by none other than CBS News. They’re not generally considered to be a charter member of the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy.
Moving right along, here’s what the President said on Monday at an Organizing for Action gathering at the St. Regis hotel in Washington DC.
“What we said was you could keep it if it hasn’t changed since the law was passed,” he told Obamacare’s political beneficiaries and contractors.
“If we had allowed these old plans [to continue]… then we would have broken an even more important promise — making sure that Americans gain access to health care that doesn’t leave them one illness away from financial ruin,” he announced.
“So the bottom line is, is that we are making the insurance market better for everybody,” he declared, prompting loud applause by supporters eager to ignore his three years of fraudulent statements.
Mr. President, let me speak candidly.
You’re a liar. Well, actually, you’re more like a goddamned liar. And an arrogant ass. You can sell that line of crap to the KoolAid crowd at OFA, but the American people have run out of patience with you.
You’ve been able to talk down to us and to blatantly lie to us for the last five years and you’ve gotten away with it. It appears this time, you’ve hit the wall. According to Gallup, your personal favorability and job approval have crossed a red line. Congratulations Mr. President, you’re at 39%. Here’s what Gallup’s poll tracking looks like.

I’ll note that when you hit 39% we hadn’t yet heard the above. Insurance cancellation letters are just a trickle right now, over the next couple of months they’re really going to it home. Oh, and about that website that’s going to be all fixed, hunky-dory, by the end of this month? Don’t bet on it being all that functional.
And, don’t bet on the last three years of your Presidency being all that functional either.
