A Catastrophe Like No Other

The White House, on the other hand, seems to have understood what the bill would do, and lied in a way so specific it showed they knew exactly what to spin and how.
"If you like your health-care plan, you can keep your health-care plan, period." "If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor, period." That of course was the president, misrepresenting the facts of his signature legislative effort. That was historic, too. If you liked your doctor, your plan, your network, your coverage, your deductible you could not keep it. Your existing policy had to pass muster with the administration, which would fight to the death to ensure that 60-year-old women have pediatric dental coverage. - WSJ.com

Your Say

And yet, like the other day, the media clamors to cover the next batch of lies spewing from Obama's pie hole, never once questioning the last batch or the resultant nightmares developing on the Sheeples that bought his crap sandwich.

If there is any good news, the first casualties from this monstrosity will be those who rushed to sign up and support the edicts of the New Wiemar Republic leader.

We are SO screwed!

"misrepresenting"

Well, we could call him a liar and glower at him.

"...in the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods. It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously. Even though the facts which prove this to be so may be brought clearly to their minds, they will still doubt and waver and will continue to think that there may be some other explanation." Adolf Hitler

Kinda scary that an evil man like Hitler would hit the nail on the head regarding this one.

Gee, thanks, Peggy Noonan, for closing the barn door after the horses' ass has already been elected --twice.
